The Pantone Spring 2014 Fashion Color Report provides an overview of the season’s hottest colors. These are important for jewelers to know so they can help customers successfully color-block their accessories. Here are some tips on how to pair hues like a pro.
Pantone 15-3920 Placid Blue
Blue’s opposite on the color wheel is red, but fashionistas also pair it with yellow. Use a neutral—or another bright—to serve as a balance, and you’ve got a winning look.
Pantone 16-3823 Violet Tulip
Pantone 15-6114 Hemlock
Like Violet Tulip, this minty green complements other sherbet shades and can break up busy prints. Its soft tones can help neutralize bolder colors.
Pantone 16-0000 Paloma
A shade of gray, Paloma is the ultimate neutral, and ideal for offsetting primary shades or other neutrals.
Pantone 15-1225 Sand
Similar to nude, Sand will pair with nearly any color—blue, red, or bolder shades.
Pantone 14-0852 Freesia
A sunny, marigold-like color lightens up darker looks, and like Placid Blue or Dazzling Blue, can coordinate with brighter colors for a bolder look.
Pantone 18-1651 Cayenne
Pantone 17-1360 Celosia Orange
Pantone 18-3224 Radiant Orchid
Pantone 18-3949 Dazzling Blue
