In keeping with tradition, Pantone have released the top ten colours for spring 2017, to coincide with various fashion weeks around the world.
Their predictions are usually pretty accurate — a keen eye can spot their list dotted throughout the spring/summer ’17 runways in a second — and last year they even hinted at what would be the colour of the year through their spring predictions.
This year, the list is decidedly subdued, featuring plenty of muted, earthy tones, including Kale and Hazelnut, with pops of primary colours like Lapis Blue and Primrose Yellow.
Following this yearly announcement everything from fashion trends to interior design is influenced by Pantone’s predictions: case in point, one of their colours of the year for 2016, Rose Quartz, has been seen everywhere from furniture to shoes and dresses.
See entire list below:

Joyful Primrose Yellow epitomises Spring with its vibrancy and warmth, evoking those first sunshine filled days after Winter. It has a hint of age, with a beautifully muted elegance and would be the perfect pop for a garden wedding…..

Island Paradise is a refreshing shade of blue with a hint of aqua. Whilst the name may evoke tropical settings, I wanted to prove this is a versatile shade that would suit a budding woodland as well as a coastal backdrop…..

My favourite of these first five shades, and a nod to the greenery trend we have seen in the wedding indsutry over the last 12 months or so, Greenery is a refreshing hue. Pair it with white to create an understated and chic celebration, or with its tangy twist it would look fabulously retro beside a bright shade of orange or blue….or both!
