During the course of the pandemic, we’ve learned a lot about the way that we dress ourselves every day — and Pantone’s spring 2022 color predictions are proof of that! The season’s palette incorporates a range of crazy colors and core classics that together combine the need for comfort we all feel lately and the excitement we’ve been missing. As we continue re-learning how to dress ourselves for these obscure times, though, we’ve been reminded through this palette and through the looks seen at New York Fashion Week to combine these colors in new combinations and make new statements!
Pantone’s spring 2022 color palette has already made its impact at New York Fashion Week — so how do you incorporate it into your own wardrobe and let it make an impact there? First, let’s get a feel for the palette itself!
spring/summer 2022 palette
The light blues, greens and nudes that make up the majority of this season’s palette capture the beauty and strength of nature and feel comfortingly clean thanks to the masks around us everyday. With these airy and earthy tones, many colors in the palette are excitingly electric and combine curiously well! We love color, and we love the colors in this season's palette which can be seen by our current and colorful socks for women that coordinate with them perfectly!
our favorite color trends to come in 2022
Incorporating the year's color trends into your wardrobe can be easy and affordable, and socks in this year’s color palette are the best way to do it! We tend to lean toward the bright and bold, but we do have options for every color in this year's palette!
Innuendo is a bold, energetic and playful pink, almost electric when paired with deeper darker colors! This is a color that can be admired even from afar, and it can be shown off with our Dear Wine, Yes socks, Bad Kitty F**k Cancer socks, Poodles Hugging socks, Hi I Don't Care socks or Hamster Wheel socks easily!
how to rock it: When it comes to rocking innuendo pink, you’ll want to play with lighter shades of itself, lighter shades of blue green and yellow, deep and dark neutral shades like navy or equally powerful colors that might almost clash if they weren't just so juicy and cute like oranges and reds!
Skydiver is a medium-dark shade of cyan-blue and is extremely stormy and seductive to the senses. Take a look at our Delicate F***king Flower Tag socks, Love Who You Love socks, Corgi Butt socks, Yoga People socks or Loch Ness socks to feel what we are!
how to rock it: We wear a lot of sleek black to model the night sky but isn't a stormy sky so much more interesting? Use the skydiver shade as your stormy sky and add depth with a yellow as bright as daffodils enduring it, blue and green shades that look like stormy seas or sparkles of any sort!
Basil is a little more pure and vibrant than what we’ve seen from the sage green trend over the last year, but basil is just as soothing and makes for a beautiful bit of color in your ensemble! It can be seen in OUR sock drawer on our Dapper Goat socks, I'd Rather Be Golfing socks, Dino Compression Knee-High socks, party beagle socks or Sailor Stripe Roll Top Bamboo socks.
how to rock it: Rocking basil green is no chore as it should be incorporated easily into almost any outfit! Basil green accents through accessories, knit style cardigans and sweaters and almost all types of socks and sock styles though trendy will also be timeless!
Daffodil is a smile-inducing springtime yellow in a shade that's bright, bold, energized and enthusiastic. As seen in our Pancake socks, Bee’s Knees Knee-High socks, What Are We Waiting For Tag socks, Tacos socks and ATV socks, this may be a springtime inspired shade, but it’s suitable for every season!
how to rock it: Especially if buying for the man in your life, less is more! As opposed to pieces in solid sunshine, consider picking subtle men's patterned socks, like the ones noted above, for instance, to avoid it being overwhelming and to make them produce even MORE smiles thanks to a perfect pattern!
