Looks like one-shoulder split-shirt tops, shirt dresses with graphic lines and oversize shapes with extended sleeves will appeal in all shades. You will find women wearing feminism on their sleeves with larger-than-life shirts that blow the men’s business-casual button-down out of the water completely.
According to the Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute this year the top 10 colors are “reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature. From the warmth of sunny days with PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow to the invigorating feeling of breathing fresh mountain air with PANTONE 18-0107 Kale and the desire to escape to pristine waters with PANTONE 14-4620 Island Paradise, designers ar applying color in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each Spring.”
