Spring 2015 Trend Alert: Blue?

Between denim and the return of everything nautical and beachy, blue is a colour that is definitely rising up above the others. Which shade of blue? All of them. Anything blue right now is in.

Take a look at the Pantone 2015 Spring colours. Four of them are different shades of blue. The colours range from light to dark, and vibrant to more neutral. All the blues in here really compliment the colour of the year, marsala, and on the pantone marsala page there are a load of pictures with marsala + blue.

top row: aquamarine, scuba blue, lucite green, classic blue.
second row: toasted almond, strawberry ice, tangerine, custard.
third row: marsala, glacier gray, dusk blue, treetop.
bottom row: woodbine, sandstone, titanium, lavender herb.

With denim at the peak of its popularity, it does make sense that blue would be a prominent colour for this spring. I talked about this a bit in my post about the 90’s revival. You can get denim-anything right now. I’ve even seen matching shoes to complete most of these outfits below.

The past few springs we’ve been seeing a spike in nautical gear during the spring season. I really enjoy this trend, I feel it gets me out of my winter blues (haha, pun) and ready for spring. So bring on navy, stripes, buttons, and anchors! It’s the new sign that spring is here!

Check out my post from last year about some spring jewelry I made for some nautical inspiration!

So, between Pantone choosing 1/4 of their spring colours to be blue, denim being so popular, and the nautical spring trend is well underway, we have an overwhelming amount of blue to choose from this spring!

How do you feel about blue being so big right now? What other colours would you like to see take the spotlight? Post in the comments below!
