Each season, the Pantone Color Institute provides a palette inspired by art, society, and nature to reflect the current moment in our global culture. This Spring's palette is strong yet soothing, and features colors that are uplifting while remaining grounded. The result is a calm and tranquil set of shades, that will help keep you cool as the temperature rises.
If you feel like your look could use a refresh but want to go a little bolder than a classic black or tortoise, here are three shades from the Spring Pantone palette that work really well for eyewear. First, Iced Coffee is a versatile color that will warm your skin tone and add interest without taking away from your features. Fiesta, a fun red tone, is for the more adventurous. But red glasses have come a long way since Sally Jesse Raphael! And we think you can almost consider Snorkel Blue a neutral, just think of it as a navy with a little added pizzazz.
