Pantone Has Predicted Next Spring’s Hot Hues, and Houston Boutiques Are Getting Colorful!

A versatile tank from French Cuff Boutique

THE PANTONE COLOR Institute, the trend-forecasting and color consultancy, revealed its spring 2022 color predictions during the first in-real-life New York Fashion Week shows since the pandemic hit. The range of 10 bold colors and five soft neutral shades "bring together our competing desires for comforting familiarity and joyful adventure through a range of soothing and timeless colors, along with joyous hues that celebrate playfulness," a Pantone exec said in a statement. This week, be inspired by the "in" colors!


PANTONE 14-0850, "Daffodil" Yellow is joyful and makes you smile. This versatile tank can be worn three ways: Channel the '70s with a tie close to the neck, wear it loose or completely untied. $25 (was $75!), frenchcuffco.com

PANTONE 18-3324, "Dahlia" You have our permission to use this tote for your 9-5 and on the weekend at the beach. Tailored from a hand-loomed dhurrie rug, the stand-out purple hue can be found at AG Antiques in The Heights or in Rice Village at The Hive, A Pop Up Collective. $225, sapanadreams.com
