I don’t know about you, but I’m a pretty big fan of Pinterest. Not only can I collect in one spot all the things that I am thinking about buying, things that inspire me, DIY ideas for crafts, recipes I would like to try, and fun quotes or pictures, but it also gives me a pretty good look into trends. (If you want to follow Paper Crafts‘s Pinterest, click here.)
So what I want to share with you today are some popular colors I have been seeing not only on Pinterest but all over the place! So here we go!
Neons. These bright, vibrant color have a synthetic and retro feel. They’re very fun, upbeat, and 80′s chic. These colors go well with retro motifs like boom boxes.
Pastels. These are just as fun as neons to me, but softer and gentler. Much more calm and feminine. These pair well with soft icons like flowers.
Mint. Mint is the most popular color I am seeing right now. Buy yourself a pair of mint skinny jeans, and you’ll be right on trend! Pair it with a soft pink top and bam! You’re the new fashionista in town!
Grey. Grey is a very popular neutral right now, especially the lighter, whiter grey. It fits in well with pastels, and I’d say it’s currently most popular as a wedding color. I’m also seeing it included in animal prints.
Pastel pink/peach. This may be a pretty seasonal springy color, but for now, it’s pretty popular. Like I said before, pair it with mint, and you’re right on! It’s very feminine and works quite well with floral prints as well.
Royal blue. What a fun color this is! And guess what? It’s on the cover of our Color Inspiration special issue! It’s a cool, punchy color that I’ve seen a lot when it comes to clothing too. Royal blue looks really nice in an analogous color scheme (colors by each other on the color wheel), so it looks particularly nice with a softer blue, like a light teal color.
Bright orange. Susan R. Opel will like this one! Bright orange is a fun, exuberant color that is very striking, and has a very modern feel when paired with black or woodgrain. It also is a fun mix with the neon greenish yellow below or royal blue above!
Neon greenish yellow. This is probably the punchiest of them yet! Hello, yellow! It’s so bright, spunky, and fun. If you wore it, you wouldn’t be able to resist feeling light-hearted and if you got a card in this color, I’m sure instant cheer would fill your heart.
Have you been seeing these colors too? Now tell me, which colors do you like the best? Which ones do you use or see yourself using soon? Comment below answering at least one of these questions, and I will pick one random commenter to win a 6×6 pad of Dear Lizzy’s Neapolitan collection and some ribbon to go along with it. (Great examples of the soft colors I mentioned above!)
All comments must be received by April 24th at 5 pm MDT. Good luck!
