Following the recent fashion weeks, Pantone® have revealed the Spring/Summer colours to look out for in 2024 including 10 seasonal colours alongside 5 neutral classics.
The seasonal colours feel like a refreshing palette cleansing selection full of the warming sun, cooling drinks relaxing in tropical climes.
The Pantone Color Institute’s executive director Leatrice Eiseman said “Colours for Spring/Summer 2024 are infused with a hint of nostalgia yet at the same time speak to transformation as we embrace a more positive way of living. A new sense of freedom is reflected in this palette of evocative yet familiar tones that open the door to the exploration of our creative potential to re-visualise the future.”
“Colours for NYFW Spring 2024 inspire feelings of release. Opening the imagination and amplifying and liberating our own unique artistic spirit, they enable us to express ourselves in more inventive ways”.
On a cold autumnal night, sometimes the only thing that is warming is clutching a hot tea in front of the fire and we can only dream of warmer weather.
These Spring colours evoke the sunny weather ahead in the form of fragrant citrus fruits as well as spicy mustards and chutneys to warm from the inside.
The pastel palette of greens, pink, blue, lilac and lemon are so cooling and refreshing like a mint filled mojito drink, enjoyed lying in a hammock beside sun bleached houses painted in these faded shades.
These Spring colours once again evoke beautiful summer holiday destination aspirations. With bold blues, coral, lavender and blazing sunshine.

Colour plays an important part in our lives and it’ll be interesting to see how these colours filter through to influence things around us.
Pantone® is the world-renowned authority on colour and the Pantone® Color of the Year is always really influential in any popular colour themes in fashion, interior design and weddings.
Look out for my report when the 2024 colour of the year is released later in the year. My guess is for a bold sunny orange – we haven’t had an orange since 2012.
