Spring Colors 2015: Women’s Fashion and Jewelry

Roslyn Fashion & Jewelry: Your Life in Color Pantone Colors, Spring

What are the spring colors for 2015 and what determines the specific new colors for any season? The company Pantone, the authority on color, forecasts color trends and provides color systems for color critical industries around the world from fashion, to housewares, to graphic arts. This comprehensive system for matching, identifying and communicating color provides designers with an essential tool when they enter a production phase. Very simply put – the process uses four inks; cyan, magenta, yellow and black and the majority of everything printed and created around the world is based on the combination of these colors, ensuring color uniformity.

Spring Colors: Pantone’s Top Ten

The Pantone company has evolved since 1956 and the fashion industry, as well as interior design, follows its lead. Headed by executive director and color expert Leatrice Eiseman, a yearly palette is released and every December, she and her team select a color of the year. This year it is Marsala, which seems to be pleasing to many.

The lead color for the Spring 2015 season is Aquamarine, an airy restful blue that takes us to relaxing places, like the beach and ocean. Picture Scuba Blue or Aquamarine, Custard and Toasted Almond together and you get sea, sun and sand – instant vacation.
The emphasis on the cool colors in blues and green according to Pantone, creates a quiet space away from the demands of technology.  

None of the colors are overly bright and there is an absence of a ‘hot’ color. Toasted Almond, Strawberry Ice, Tangerine, Custard and Marsala are warm colorsThere are soft neutral earthy hues like Marsala, Tangerine, Toasted Almond, Lucite Green and Custard. The overall easy feel of this palette lends itself to many of the fanciful and feminine trends seen this spring.

I loved going to work each day for 30 years as a professional career counselor. When I retired, I explored my creativity and regard for crafts until I discovered beading. At age 68 I turned my new found passion- jewelry design, into a business. At age 72 I took on learning about social media marketing and developing my computer skills. I am sharing my journey from inception, to frustration, to elation -in the hope of inspiring others that 'it is not too late to start again'. Welcome to my re-invention!

  1. I love your blog! It is always so informative, something I wouldn’t normally expect from a fashion blog. Thank you for the education about colors. I’m surprised to see the deep blues and navies associated with Spring because I always think of soft pastels and other brighter colors.

      Coach Niguenya, Thanks for loving our blogs. It pleases us to provide content as well as to pair our jewelry with color or fashion. If you think about it, nautical blue has always been around in the summer months.

    2. “Toasted Almond” sprung out at me. A toasted almond t-shirt, jeans, sandals, and the mermaid necklace…I am ready to present myself as pretty in spring.

  2. Love how you paired current fashions and colour trends with your jewelry in this post, Roslyn. Personally I love your jewelry on its own, yet seeing the pieces in context with outfits women will wear, adds a new dimension to our imagining how they would look on us.

    As a big turquoise and blue person, I found it interesting to see them paired with some more “earthy” tones. I rarely wear earth tones myself, although black is a stable for me, never on its own, always with colour. I’ve always loved bold bright colours, yet the pastels offer a softer and gentler easing into spring. Whoever actually “names” these colours, must have an interesting time coming up with new descriptive colours. Scuba blue really resonates with me, and I would most likely still call it a rich shade of turquoise. Thanks for the trip through what is coming for spring, both colour wise and fashion wise. Great opportunity to be educated all in one place!

      Beverley, the world of color is an important aspect to designing and we have covered aspects of it before and will again. Fashion is more subjective and our goal is to show options, to give readers ideas of wearing and combining styles they might not have considered. Thank you so much for your generous comment. I know you look great in vibrant colors and suggest you try a pastel scarf.

  3. Definitely bringing us spring fever with this post!! Great combinations that make me want to take a new look at my approach – I’m in Marsala fan club for sure!! Thanks for great tips.

  4. Your blog is like a ray of sunshine Roslyn. I so enjoy being taken on a magical journey of shimmering greens, glimmering golds and lustrous blues. Your description of colours and display of jewellery engages all the senses in the most pleasurable way.

    Aquamarine is one of my favourite colours and I recall cold winters in the UK that would immediately warm up after adorning myself with this ocean-like colour. I love your choice for weekend wear and earthy toasted almond sounds so tantalising you make me want to bite it as well as wear it! 🙂

    As always the only adjective that comes to mind to describe your well-co-ordinated combo’s is PERFECT! Roll on spring, then summer and even fall, as your jewellery is beautiful for every season!

      Glad you like our blogs Cathy Jennings. Wish we could help you coordinate your wardrobe with jewelry. If ever you have a favorite dress or top and want a new necklace for it, you could send a photo and we could make suggestions.

  6. wonderful article Roslyn. I also heard that large floral prints were going to be popular this spring and summer. What do you suggest for jewelry what wearing prints? loving the upcoming colors!!!

      Yes, Large floral prints are a trend this spring but not everyone will embrace it or look good in it. Perhaps we will write a blog on this topic.

  7. Gorgeous styling pics with your pieces and those outfits! Makes me want to go shopping ASAP. I love aquamarine and as a FL girl it’s a fitting color. Springtime colors make me so happy. Though it is interesting that most of pantone’s color choices are more neutrals and less brights, as you noted. I wear toasted almond quite frequently.

      Holly Jean, it seems aquamarine is a favorite as it brings sea and sky to our minds eye. Pantone has to change things up and keep us on our toes, so this year the colors are more neutral. Next year- we shall see. Glad you liked the post.

  8. I love the way you combined your beautiful jewelry with the latest trends in fashion colors. I also like that you put the price on them, too. Clearly, your hand-crafted jewelry is the biggest bargain around!

  9. Thanks for the suggestion above to add a pastel scarf to the more vibrant, bold colours that I wear. When I was younger (in my true hippie days) I often had my mother knit me sweaters that were a multitude of colours. I remember combining red and orange or purple and blue and turquoise and I believe this love of colour started when I was very young. Then I had my “black” years, 20 years of wearing all black with a touch of colour in my jewelry. Perhaps it is time to consider incorporating some of the colours that I wouldn’t normally choose (khakis or navy or even yellows) to dare myself to move outside my colour comfort zone and to experiment and see what new combinations I can concoct that I will actually keep in my wardrobe palette. When it comes to our colour preferences I would imagine that old habits die hard.

      Yes, Beverley, old habits are hard to change, but my black was brown and tans. Slowly that gave way to my true favorite- all shades of purple. I always loved the color but didn’t have much of it in my closet. Now I am pleased when I open the closet or some drawers and have purples, fuchsia, lavender, plums- a range in this palette to choose from. Two years ago, I started working turquoise into the mix.

  10. Thanks for the update on the colors for Spring, Roslyn. I love pastels and softer shades and the palette has given me some great ideas to look good this Spring and into the hot Indian Summer. Loved the Mermaid necklace.

      You are so welcome. Thanks for your comments. I can see pastels looking great on you with your dark hair. The lighter colors probably also keep you cooler.
