Pantone's Post-Lockdown Colour Predictions Say It Loud and Clear: We All Need a Holiday
If there's one thing we need in our post-lockdown wardrobes, it's colour. After a year of swapping grey pyjamas for black ones, it's almost time to step out and be seen by the world. The best way to do this? In a showstopping palette. If you don't know where to start, Pantone is here to guide the way.
Following Fashion Month, Pantone shares their Fashion Colour Trend Report — their expert forecast on the hottest hues to look out for. Among their top 10 picks for New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week, three of them perfectly reflect our collective moods after our shared lockdown experience. Shades of red and pink are definite standouts – a soft, delicate blush gives a feeling of gentleness that's welcomed after a tough time, and a deep and sultry wine reminds us of the incredible growth we've experienced. It looks like we'll be looking at the world through rose-coloured glasses in more ways than one.
Pantone also highlights a brilliant blue that fosters feelings of excitement for our impending freedom, and will have you longing to dive into the nearest body of water as soon as we're allowed to travel again. The main takeaway? When it comes to wearing colour in 2021, it's go big or go home — and we've all had enough of being at home.
