Color Report 8 of 10: 5 Jewels to Color-Block With Pantone’s Custard

The Pantone Spring 2015 Fashion Color Report serves as an overview of designers’ color choices in new clothing collections. The colors are important for jewelers to know so they can help customers successfully color-block accessories. Here are five ways to color-block with Pantone’s Custard.

Custard from Pantone

Custard is “sweet and sunny” and a “cheering tone that brings thoughts of pleasant relaxation and comfort food,” according to Pantone. Custard is “engaging with its soft and mellow warmth” and has “an affable and easy disposition,” continues the color agency.

1. Dress Custard with pink, like clothing designer Nicole Miller, for a cheerful look.
