As we are getting closer to spring, most of us I am sure, are starting to think about our spring wardrobes, I thought this would be a good opportunity to take a look at Pantone’s color report for spring 2017. The Pantone Color Institute is one of the most used resources for color direction by brands and companies and that is why I usually like to follow their colors as a guide. They normally do about 10 colors and below you can see their names, along with a small description and a mood board for each color.
