Style Your Life With The Official Colors of Summer 2016

Your Style Guide to The “It” Colors of Summer 2016

Now that you’re in touch with the personal lifestyle trends of Summer 2016, let’s color your life to match!

The artist Paul Gauguin said it best: “Color! What a deep and mysterious language, the language of dreams.” Expressing yourself with color isn’t something to fear; it’s something to embrace. After all, while form and function is the canvas of your style, color is a statement of your personality!

Style and design experts turn to one source for the ultimate guide to seasonal color palettes: Pantone. Pantone brands itself as your guide for “accurate color communication”. What a beautiful statement! Pantone is the authority on accurate color matching and precision. Think of it this way: Pantone makes sure the color you love on print is the same one that ends up on your dining room walls. It provides seamless transition from clothing fabric to car paint, from web design to personal style.

Every year, Pantone releases its Official Colors for the year and for each season. The Spring/Summer 2016 color palette from Pantone is truly vibrant and expressive.

“Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves.” – Pantone Spring/Summer 2016 Color Trends (Website)

The Summer 2016 Pantone color palette is warm but soft, like a familiar portrait with a dash of bold new color. Much like our official Summer 2016 Style Trend Report, their chosen colors dare you to try something different and unique, pairing hues in original ways.
