There’s nothing quite like a Louisiana spring full of festivals, parades and plenty of crawfish. The busy season is also an opportunity to update your wardrobe with lots of new colors.
Each year, the Pantone fashion corporation releases its spring and fall color reports. These colors work as guidelines for designers and the upcoming seasonal trends. This spring’s palette is a vibrant mix of bolds and pastels, each drawing inspiration from the different qualities associated with the season.
Whether you’re in need of some outfit ideas or just looking to stay on trend, I picked a few of the Pantone shades that are perfect to wear for the various events going on in the next few months.
LSU Baseball Cheer the Tigers on to victory in a bright freesia yellow — we’ll call it “gold.” The floral inspired shade not only brightens up your look, but it pairs beautifully with orchid-colored accessories. It’s a bright, eye-catching version of our traditional purple and gold.
St. Patrick’s Day Hitting up the St. Patty’s Day parade? Deck yourself out in some hemlock green. Lucky for us, this shade isn’t too intense and flatters most skin tones. It also matches a lot different colors, so you’ll get wear out of it throughout the rest of the season.
Crawfish Boils Comfy and casual is the perfect way to spend these relaxed, outdoor events. Placid blue is fresh and neutral, so you won’t look too overdone or dressed down. You can’t go wrong with blue!
Easter Sunday Stay pretty and church-ready on Easter Sunday by sticking to the classic pastels that are popular on this holiday. This season’s violet tulip is classic and lady-like. Add some delicate jewelry to bring your look full-circle on this holy day.
