Spring Summer 2012 Trend Report

Pantone Men's Color Spring 2013

Similar to the women's palette, the menswear colors for spring emphasize the need for balance with soothing neutrals accented by an array of energizing brights. As the name implies, Tidal Foam is reminiscent of the sea washing onto the shore, driven by the force of the waves. With its slight hint of green, it's this spring's answer to khaki as the perfect neutral. Emerald remains a powerful and brilliant jewel tone, perfect for men's accessories and sportswear. Grayed Jade,a subtle, hushed green, as well as Dusk Blue, reminiscent of the calming tones of an evening sky, both act as staple, yet novel neutrals.

Anchoring Monaco Blue naturally has an air of masculinity, providing stability and depth to the palette. Pair it with Grayed Jade and Emerald for a strong, classic mixture. Alloy,a reliable mid-tone gray, is a necessity for spring. An easy, lightweight alternative to Black for the warmer months, Alloy makes a strong statement without the weight. Linen,an off-white, complexion-flattering hue, pairs well with many colors. Look for it combined with Grayed Jade, Alloy or Monaco Blue for classic combinations that balance light, mid and deep tones.

Dynamic and exciting Poppy Red plays a vital role in men's fashion trends for spring and summer. Vibrant Orange,an animated, striking hue, provides vigor and enthusiasm. The robust yellow found in Sunflower offers an earthy, Dijon-like flavor, that when combined with Emerald and Monaco Blue, creates a sophisticated update to a familiar combination.
