Monaco Blue is the season’s leading color for women and men, according to Pantone Color Institutes’s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman.


Not a dark navy, Monaco Blue has more of a maritime cast to it, but it is also a practical purchase for any wardrobe, with more than half the population listing blue as a favorite hue. “It speaks to the practicality that we are seeing in society. You have to realize there is still concern out there for the economy,” Eiseman said.

In fact, the top five spring colors for women — Monaco Blue, Dusk Blue, Emerald, Grayed Jade and Linen — are all shades that can be easily blended into consumers’ existing wardrobes. Noting how Dusk Blue has “kind of a quiet, calming sense of serenity,” Eiseman said, “There is sort of a stop-the-world-I-want-to-get-off feeling. People want dependably stable colors.”
