In 2012, it was all about Tangerine Tango; last year, Emerald was the hue you had to know. And now, Pantone has declared Dazzling Blue—a shade that falls somewhere between cobalt and electric blue—the official color of spring 2014. Thanks to both Facebook and Citibike (the bicycle-sharing program currently taking Manhattan by storm), the shade’s already been getting major play in our day-to-day lives lately, and now we’re even more tempted to add some new blues to our wardrobes, too. Click through above to shop 18 tempting pieces in Dazzling Blue, this season’s hottest hue.
Oh, and for the record, the second- and third-place colors in Pantone’s seasonal survey were Violet Tulip and Radiant Orchid, respectively—both of which happen to fall squarely into the purple family. So even if blue’s not your bag, it seems you can still be on trend just by choosing cooler colors in the months to come.
