Every season, Pantone--a leading technology for accurate communication of color--releases a fashion color report. Researchers at Pantone go through an in-depth analysis to forecast which colors are the "it" shades a.k.a. the colors you'll end up seeing on the runway. PALE DOGWOOD, a light shade of pink, is the must-have hue Pantone has predicted will be poppin' in Spring 2017. Pink is definitely making a comeback.
Many clothing brands are already in the design lab to produce various clothing items dyed in this color. Lacoste is no exception. I was lucky enough to receive one of their latest additions to the sneaker family: the Straightset Chukka in the color, you guessed it, pale dogwood. These shoes are true to size and they are incredibly comfortable, which is not surprising for such a well-established brand. I wanted to style these shoes with a more feminine outfit so I decided to pair a white long-sleeve shirt with my A-line denim skirt. I kept the look simple by adding few accessories and wore my beige beret to complement the color of the shoes.
I am now super excited for the next season to roll over (well technically I'd have to wait two seasons) so that I can play around with these shoes more! I could dress this up with a more feminine look like I am in as this outfit or I could contrast it with some black jeans and a gray sweater for a more tomboy-ish look.
What do you think of Pantone's Spring fashion color report? Would you wear pale dogwood in your outfit? Let me know in the comments below!
Keep it classy,
P.S.-HUGE thank you to the folks over at Lacoste for your generosity! I'll be sure to give these kicks lots of love <3
