[Color Code: Placid Blue]

February does not always have to be all about the sweet romantic pink.  How about making some room in your closet for this other pastel color called Placid Blue?  Which undoubtedly lives up to its name, as its soft blue hue imparts nothing but tranquility. (agree?)
Moreover, with the spring season approaching, there's no reason to not start embracing this light shade of blue that opens Pantone® Spring 2014 Fashion Color palette, and slowly make your transition into spring. 

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®, suggests that this pastel is very adaptable, as we are so accustomed to seeing it as nature's background.  So, not only that we can see this color stands on its own for its picture-perfect calmness, but also as a neutral that can be creatively mixed with other colors in the spectrum.  

Designers, such as the contemporary A.Wang and Barbara Bui to the high fashion Burberry, Marchesa, and Valentino, have also given their approval of this placid color through their Spring/Summer 2014 collections.

What's more with the recent street style of Autumn/Winter 2014 fashion weeks crowds, which shows how the crowds have successfully figured out this blue's clues. 

Don a matching placid blue top and bottoms like what Jeanie Lee did and add some matching accessories in the same colors as well.  Or simply put a jacket of this hue over your monochrome articles, like Kate Foley and Eleina Welteroth did.

There's no absolute rule on how to and not to wear this placid hue, so be creative and have fun!
