How to Spice Up Your Wardrobe With the Pantone Colors of Summer 2018
With Meadowlark Yellow and Ultra Violet leading the color trends for 2018, according to the Pantone Color Institute, we have seen an interesting resurgence of yellow and blue/purple this year on the runways and on the wrists.
Each season, we strive to introduce the emerging colors so watch lovers — especially those who have watches with interchangeable strap systems — can be on the mark when they spice up their timepieces and clothing.
With summer not too far off, though, we are struggling because the season’s colors are — frankly — all across the board. Black remains part of the palette, used mostly as an accent color, and white is almost a staple (no surprises there). As for the hues of the season, they range from taupes, tans and dusty olives, to the bolder and more vibrant Blueberry, Poppy Red and Jolly Green. Festive shades of purple, yellow and blue also play an important role, as do the muted pale versions of the bolder siblings, with Pastel Yellow, Baby Blue and Florida Keys teal making a strong appearance.
When it comes to how this translates into your wardrobe, our best advice is to add a little color — any color — to spice up your days and nights. If you own a white strapped watch, put it on. Similarly, if you are one of those who own today’s great blue, green or brown dial colors — don’t be afraid to wear it. Don’t think you have to wear a blue suit with a blue dial watch. Mix it up a bit and try that blue watch with a brown suit — or vice versa. This summer is going to be all about sporting contrasting colors.
