which would you wear Left Or Right?
Pantone has unveiled the color for 2016, I’d say that there are very beautiful colors but I’m not looking at the spring part as we have no spring or winter in Nigeria so i cant be bothered but will still go ahead and wear them.
The colors are Rose Quartz & Serenity, beautiful colors if you ask me, very complementing classy and stylish while giving a calming effect.
If you are wondering who Pantone is or what Pantone is, they are the Color Oracles that tell us what colors will dominate every year, even when you do not agree with them you still have to watch their prophesy come to pass.
Because designers will make clothing in all the shades they’ve prophesied you’ll find nail polish in the said colors mugs, rugs and interior decorators will find chairs and curtains in those shades.
Did you notice the way Marsala took over last year?
I told you their prophesies always come to pass
Last year the color was Marsala some whined and complained, i did too but 365 days is a long time and Marsala definitely grew on me. i still don’t own anything in that shade yet… maybe i will later.
So back to the colors for the year…. The Executive Director of Pantone had this to say .
In many parts of the world we are experiencing a gender blur as it relates to fashion, which has in turn impacted color trends throughout all other areas of design. This more unilateral approach to color is coinciding with societal movements toward gender equality and fluidity, the consumer’s increased comfort with using color as a form of expression, a generation that has less concern about being typecast or judged and an open exchange of digital information that has opened our eyes to different approaches to color usage. -Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute

Having you started making plans for 2015..?
If No, What Are You Waiting For..??
If Yes, *High5*
I don’t believed in outrageous new year resolutions, but I believe in goals that are reasonable and realistic.
What are the things you want to leave behind in 2014?
Do not hesitate to evaluate and let go the things that make you less progressive, the people who surround you with negative comments and negative energy.
You need people who will make your life better and bring in sunshine, let go all the dark clouds and excess baggage.
Do the things that will make you feel good in this new year, pamper yourself, love yourself, put yourself first.
Improve your looks go all out to put up an appearance, but do not over do it.
Find the right clothing for your body type, add more colors to your wardrobe.
Write down the areas that need improvement and work on it.
Its important to have fun, laughter is a good medicine.
Be happy, Be Confident.
Have A Wonderful New Year, Happy Holidays.
Pantone has named “Marsala” the color for 2015, though I have mixed feelings about this color dominating the whole 365 days of 2015, it reminds me of ‘Aja Upa” (Red sand).
Every year you notice a particular or set of colors but one is usually the most dominant, you notice the change in cosmetic, clothing, furniture and electronics even.
That’s Pantone at work every year they decided these colors for us and we jump on it, Thank you Pantone.
Last year was “Radiant Orchid” and it took over just like “Marsala” is about to spring up on us like wild fire.
While this year has muted colors not nearly as vibrant as the radiant orchid.
For Women the colors are Aquamarine, Lucite Green, Scuba Blue, Toasted Almond, Classic Blue, Custard, Tangerine, Marsala & Strawberry Ice.
You can mix and match the colors in this order or any way you choose…..Strawberry Ice, Tangerine, Scuba Blue, then Classic Blue, Aquamarine, Toasted Almond & Custard, Lucite Green, Marsala.
While Treetop, Glacier Grey, Dusk Blue, Toasted Almond, Classic Blue, Titanium, Woodbine, Sandstone, Lavender Herb and Marsala Are For Men.
I love the vibrance of the Classic Blue, Treetop, Woodbine & the way its diluted with the Toasted Almond, Dusk blue & Lavender Herb, The Sandstone, Titanium, Glacier Grey are neutrals to me.
As for Marsala it doesn’t have the strength and vibrance of a color that I want to see everywhere and around me, I believe colors affect your mood and your productivity level.
A more vibrant shade of Marsala will add sheen to the black skin, I’m not so sure about Marsala its self, looked boring to me.
You need to understand our skin tone is distinctive and special, some of us have the darkest shade of brown that its almost black or black , its OK to want to look earthy but I haven’t seen any one you rolled in “Aja Upa” (Red Sand) that looked nice.
My advice is “Moderation is the key and always look out for the Shade of the color that will do justice to you”
Its important that you pay attention to colors and how they affect your brand.
So take time out and have a rethink before you jump on the Marsala wagon.
