But what about the other fashion colors for this spring?

Yellow has clearly made its return and same for some particular blue shades. Nude colors confirm themselves also in this spring color report. Here are the exact shades you are going to see worn on the catwalks:

PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow

By contrast, Primrose Yellow sparkles with heat and vitality. Inviting us into its instant warmth, this joyful yellow shade takes us to a destination marked by enthusiasm, good cheer and sunny days. (-Pantone)

These days,yellow is already trending specially on social networks like Instagram. This warm shade is perfect for a satin long dress, like the ones seen worn by Emily Ratajkowskij at the Golden Globes, or the one made by the famous photographer Nima Benati, that published her creation on her Instagram account. Last but not least, how not to mention one of the most famous fairy dresses we have loved since we were child? How many of you can remember the gorgeous Yellow dress worn in the Beauty and The Beast? For some of us it was the dress of our childhood dreams…

PANTONE 13-1404 Pale Dogwood

Continuing the tranquil mood, Pale Dogwood is a quiet and peaceful pink shade that engenders an aura of innocence and purity. The unobtrusive Pale Dogwood is a subtle pink whose soft touch infuses a healthy glow. (-Pantone)

A soft color full of grace and elegance. Often matched in the nude palettes with beige nuances, it’s the perfect shade for the tulle fabric. Pale Dogwood is a timeless shade.


PANTONE 14-1315 Hazelnut

Rounding out the spring 2017 colors is Hazelnut, a key neutral for spring. This shade brings to mind a natural earthiness. Unpretentious and with an inherent warmth, Hazelnut is a transitional color that effortlessly connects the seasons. (-Pantone)

I don’t know what you think, but this shade makes me literally hungry. It reminds me too much of  the hazelnut ice cream ( which I adore).  Plus, it’s perfect in any combination.


PANTONE 14-4620 Island Paradise

Island Paradise is a refreshing aqua that calls to mind a change of scenery. A cool blue green shade that speaks to our dream of the great escape, Island Paradise is emblematic of tropical settings and our desire to unwind. (-Pantone)

One of my favorites of the season! Absolutely fabulous and a novelty if used for a night event as the blogger Chiara Ferragni did at Golden Globes. But Island Paradise reminds me also of another fairy dress of my childhood.. Can’t you figure out which one? Scroll down to be surprised..

PANTONE 17-1462 Flame

A red-based orange, Flame, is gregarious and fun loving. Flamboyant and vivacious, this wonderfully theatrical shade adds fiery heat to the spring 2017 palette. (-Pantone)

The hottest and at the same time the freshest of them all. Similar to the coral and the shades of red oranges, Flame is the new nuance of red that will dominate this summer.


PANTONE 17-2034 Pink Yarrow

Tropical and festive, Pink Yarrow is a whimsical, unignorable hue that tempts and tantalizes. Bold, attention getting and tempestuous, the lively Pink Yarrow is a captivating and stimulating color that lifts spirits and gets the adrenaline going.(-Pantone)

Vibrant and femenine, this is how the return of magenta is foretold. You only need a touch of this color to light up an outfit and make it perfectly colorful. Girls, use it with caution 😉

And, just as we see in nature, this lush and fertile natural green shade provides the perfect complementary background to the more vibrant tones in the palette.(-Pantone)

Mimetic and perfect if combined with shocking vibrant colors. Kale is a nuance that reinterprets the classic olive green or militar green. Absolutely a must-try!
