The spring season is finally just around the corner, and sartorially speaking, there is plenty to look forward to. Today, I'll be focusing on one of my favorite color subjects—colors—and what hues are going to bring us the most excitement for the season ahead. While we already did our own report according to what we saw on the S/S 22 collections, this time we looked to the color experts, Pantone for even further insight. The Pantone Color Institute could be deemed as the color trend authority, so when its fashion week color report was released, we had to share.
A majority of the shades for 2022 are eye-catching and saturated, while there are a few understated options in the mix like Orchid Bloom and Humus. Below, find seven Pantone colors that you can expect to see everywhere this spring. Keep scrolling to shop our favorite picks in each hue. We guarantee you'll find something that you'll want to add to your cart immediately.

When spring comes along, I'm not surprised when I see a plethora of pink on the market. Instead of a bright fuchsia or pastel, bubblegum is the perfect medium ground. The shade comes and goes out of the spotlight, and according to Pantone it's back and ready for action.

While Kelly green has been reigning in popularity and will continue to do so for 2022, the spring runways proved that there's also room for a more electric lime green. Pantone seems to agree, as it had the shade Fragile Sprout in its color report.

While Pantone did mark Very Peri as the color of the year, it was a lighter purple that showed up in its fashion week color report. It's a light breath of fresh air that balances things out from the rest of the bright hues in this mix.

Not only was this fiery shade of red spotted on the runways of Proenza Schouler and Atluzarra, but it's also been recently championed by celebrities like Rihanna and Kate Middleton.

A sister shade to Poinciana, Coral Rose is both comforting yet playful at the same time. We already predicted to see a lot more orange this year, so we're not surprised this showed up on Pantone's report.
