When spring rolls around, one typically thinks florals and pastel colors, but there are tons of other options out there. This year, several trending Pantone colors revolve around a more neutral palette of tans, cappuccinos, rosy nudes, and so forth. This spring’s big “it” neutral is “Hazelnut,” named by the 2017 Pantone Color Report, a fashionista and designer’s cheat guide to the hot colors for the year.
Neutrals are surprisingly a point of debate at times. For many years, neutrals were pushed on larger bodies as a way to force them to blend in with the wallpaper, for plus-size bodies to take up less space as people and personalities. Fashionistas Kim Kardashian, Nadia Aboulhosn, and Victoria Beckham helped bring neutrals back into the fashion fold, incorporating them with body-con silhouettes, taking them from drab to sexy.
Need a bit of inspiration for how to implement this trend into your wardrobe? You got it!
