Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

No one knows color like Pantone. So we’re obviously banking on its spring color picks to fill our closet.

1. Radiant Orchid was named 2014 Color of the Year, but we have a feeling we’ll be wearing it straight through 2015.

2. Forget a pop of yellow. Freesia is worth wearing all over.

3. Celosia Orange–hued lipstick? It’s at the top of our makeup must-have list.

4. We’re adding some flavor to our wardrobe with a little Cayenne this season.

5. Heels. Dresses. Jackets. We’ll take them all in Dazzling Blue, please.

The Verdict Is In: Pantone’s 2014 Color Is Radiant Orchid

The experts at Pantone have spoken: Radiant Orchid is 2014’s color of the year. A shade of purple with fuchsia and pink undertones, Pantone describes the color as a “surprisingly versatile shade” that can be worn by both men and women.

I know what you’re thinking – fuchsia for men? It’s a hard enough for women to wear without looking like Barbie. But before you shoot down Pantone’s prediction, just remember Emerald, 2013’s color of the year. It was everywhere. Which means you should probably prepare yourself for plenty of pinky-purple dresses, sofas, walls, and more. In fact, Radiant Orchid has already made it into Juicy Couture’s and Yoana Baraschi’s Spring 2014 collections. And you know what? I don’t hate it.

Accessorize with Pantone’s Top Fashion Colors for Spring

From Poppy Red to Monaco Blue, get decked out in the season's hottest hues

The return to bright colors is the best part of spring – besides the warm weather, of course. And thanks to the color authority (also known as Pantone) we have a little easy-to-use guide that’s like our pocket-sized spring-trend guru. But if all-out color isn’t your thing, you can still stay true to your inner fashionista with a statement bauble in the season’s hottest hues. Try out any of these candy-colored pieces with everything from jeans and a tee to an LBD, then sit back and soak up the sartorial praise.

Going Emerald in 2013

How to Wear Emerald

Jewel-tone hues are making a comeback – in a big way. Pantone, the leading authority on color trends, has ruled emerald as the color of the year for 2013, and we can’t wait to start incorporating it into our closets. Here’s how:

Start small. Try mixing the color into your accessories first. A pair of teardrop earrings, a statement necklace, or an eye-catching bracelet (like the one above) boasting the shade will automatically boost your day-to-day wardrobe.

Contrast. Pair this tone with different textures (think wool and silk or chiffon and leather) and other complementary shades, like navy, for a look that makes a statement – but not too loudly.

Make it your basic. Opt for this rich color instead of reaching for your go-to white V-neck the next time you feel like dressing down.

Dress it up. Say goodbye to your favorite LBD and show up to your next cocktail party draped in this lush tone.

Switch up your shoes. Now would be the perfect time to swap your standard black pumps for a pair of emerald suede heels (sky-high encouraged).

Clutch it. Nothing inserts a pop of color into an outfit like a unique bag. A metallic leather clutch in this rich shade will add an unexpected touch to an otherwise toned-down blazer-and-heels ensemble.
