Placid Blue
Cool, calm and on the “pastel” side of the spectrum, placid blue works wonders with spring’s biggest casual trends—like “shabby-chic” florals and light-as-air lace.

Celosia Orange
If we had to guess, we’d say celosia orange was inspired by a dramatic sunrise. It’s a glowing take on a secondary shade that feels new following a season big on darks.

Dazzling Blue
If you love to go bold in cobalt or royal, you’re bound to become a fan of this chic shade. (The best thing about the “new” dazzling blue? You already have it in your wardrobe!)

CayenneShop Cayenne Colors~~~~false~~



The season’s hottest shade of red, cayenne is the epitome of “spicy.” Wear it on your lips, on the town, anytime you want to make a statement.

FreesiaShop Freesia Colors~~~~false~~



The name stems from the freesia plant, but the color calls to mind a variety of flowers—like daffodils, yellow roses and sunflowers, to name a few. All in all, it’s a happy shade that’s set to brighten days (and wardrobes!) all season.

Radiant Orchid
2014’s color of the year reminds us why we first fell in love with purple. (It was our fave color as a kid!) Radiant orchid is bold, but not loud; feminine, but not sweet—and looks great with our current choice color: black.
