Color Trends for Spring 2014

New York Fashion Week has come to an end, but it’s left us dreaming about the colors we should see on racks this coming spring. Head-to-toe white looks and last spring’s black-and-white color combination were abundant. When white wasn’t walking the runways we saw several of Pantone’s Spring 2014 hues including soft blue (Placid Blue), spicy red (Cayenne), bold yellow (Freesia), and rich orange (Celosia Orange). These new Pantone beauties ruled the runways in monochromatic brights and the ever-present spring floral print. Check out some of the looks we saw for a peek at what’s to come this spring.

It was a white out at New York Fashion Week for the spring 2014 collections. No matter which modern direction each designer decided to go in, they all seemed to make their way back to white. This crisp, clean, and sleek color is a breath of fresh air for the upcoming spring season.
