Working for a fashion company for the last 4 years, I've learned a lot about the industry. Pantone is a big part of creating new lines, styles and color stories. Recently Pantone released their Spring 2016 Top 10 colors and according to Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute "The colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves." That's exactly how I felt when I saw these amazing colors. With that came the awesome idea for a group of us bloggers to do a collab. So today I bring you the Pantone Spring 2016 Blogger Collaboration. Similar to the one I was in last year (see here), we each chose a color from the collection and created a look. I love these types of collabs because it shows how different our individual styles are while still having some uniformity between us all.
Green Flash is the color I chose and when I research what it represented, this is what Pantone had to say.
"PANTONE 15-0146 Green Flash calls on its wearer to explore, push the envelope and escape the mundane, radiating an openness that combines with the rest of the palette in unexpected but serendipitous ways. The popularity of this brilliant hue is representative of nature’s persistent influence even in urban environments, a trend continuing to inspire designers."
This gave me the inspiration to step out my box and put a together a look that was definitely out of my comfort zone. This Jumpsuit and Sheer Hi-Lo Blouse from Modamix was definitely a feat for me. I'm the ultimate girly-girl, so jumpsuits are not something I normally wear, but I have to say this one was an exception. The cold shoulder design added some femininity and sexiness to the silhouette, along with the rope tie belt that flattered the waist. The athletic stripes on the side of the pants created the illusion of this being separates. When I paired the blouse with the jumpsuit, it was like the two pieces were meant to be. The abstract design mixed with the vibrant greens and blues is definitely a show stopper. Green Flash, here I come!
I hope you enjoyed our Pantone 2016 Spring Blogger Collab. Check out our lookbook below to see how my blogger babes styled their colors!
