Examples of Pantone’s Dazzling Blue on a variety of fashion items.

It’s official, the color gods at Pantone has spoken. Dazzling blue is the spring color.  This is great news as blues are a great way to dress up your wardrobe from denim to bring statement necklaces, to  a belt that adds some pizzaz!  Lighter than navy, but deeper than the average chambray, there’s a good chance you already have some dazzling blue items in your closet that you can reuse for Spring 2014.

I felt like we saw some great dresses at Tracy Reese 2014 in dazzling blue with red accents.  To read more about Spring colors, check my post on the complete Pantone list of colors for Spring 2014.
