Style File: Spring Colors 2008

Studio 5 Beauty and Style Contributor Holly Stone helps us pull of the bright, bold colors of Spring 2008.


According to the Pantone Fashion Color Report, the Spring 2008 palette is defined by classic, versatile neutrals punctuated by splashes of invigorating brights. These colors empower consumers to explore new and creative ways to combine colors.

“The spring 2008 color palette perfectly reflects the cheerfulness of the season,” said Leatrice Eisesman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Stabilizing neutrals combined with pops of

brighter colors to create unique, distinctive looks are the basis for a great spring and summer wardrobe.”

Four of my favorite colors for this season are:

• Turquoise

• Green

• Lilac purple

• Blush pink

The tones of these four colors will look good on most people, regardless of personal coloring.

The best ways to wear these colors is to select 2-3 colors that you like and then purchase one or two items in each color to accent your wardrobe. If you love the color and must have it, but it just doesn’t look good on you, buy an accessory in that color i.e.: a purse, scarf, watch, jewelry or the best: a shoe. Don’t feel like you have to invest a lot of money to be current to trend. Just invest in a few pieces that you love and they will transition you perfectly from spring to summer.


To be creative, wear turquoise with grey, and cream with white. Tan, beige, eggshell, putty and off white are some of the prominent neutrals. Silver grey and black are always fantastic options to use as darker pairing colors. Dark denim is always a safe choice for this year as well.
