pantone 2016's color guide

2016 color guide from Pantone is a collection of seasonal shades selected to ease the daily grind by offering calm, softer tones to its viewers. In society’s current world, where technology plays such a large role, people feel like they want to stop the world and disconnect for a while.

Needless to say, the need for calm, comforting hues is in demand and Pantone’s 2016 color guide is here to offer a range of swatches from comforting hues like serenity and rose quartz to warm burgundy. This spring season, rose quartz is the number one go-to color for women and men. This gender-neutral pigment can be combined with many of the listed top ten colors.

Similar soothing shades can be found in the remaining top five of this list, such as: Peach Echo, Serenity, Snorkel Blue and Buttercup. The second half of the top-ten list features colors such as: Aqua Limpet Shell, Lilac Gray, Warm Red Fiesta, Iced Coffee and Green Flash.

Currently, consumers tend to gravitate towards a more lush vegetation look. In the city, whether people get outside or not, they at least want to be within eyeshot of botanical scenery. Interior botanic prints are becoming popular for this season, and people are gravitating towards patterns with a more natural look. With this popular movement going back to nature, we can incorporate these hues and prints into our everyday wardrobe, decor and especially all types of packaging.

Keeping up with current color trends should not be a hassle. To make your bags stand out from the rest, use pops of vivid brights or more subtle hues from this palate. These colors are so versatile that they can be used in any combination along with trendy spring prints to create a unique shopper for your customers.
