The biggest color trends of 2022 are rooted in optimism, warmth, growth and excitement as we head into the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Color authorities and trend forecasters like Pantone, WSGN and Etsy have started releasing their color predictions for next year, many of which are bright hues that give a jolt of energy during the bleakness of the pandemic.
Pantone today revealed that Veri Peri, a blue-purple hue, is its color of 2022. The shade is described as a “warm and friendly blue hue with a carefree confidence and joyful attitude.” Veri Peri is just one shade of blue Pantone predicts will be big next year. It’s also anticipating Spun Sugar (a pastel blue), Glacier Lake (a powdery blue), Skydiver (a bright blue) and Harbor Blue (a dark blue-green) will resonate with many next year.
Like previous years, many of the colors of 2022 are again rooted in nature. Pantone’s Daffodil, for one, a bright yellow color, is said to reflect the “spontaneity of a spring garden.” Pantone’s Perfectly Pale, a beige hue, also references a warm beach. Etsy’s color of 2022, Emerald Green, reflects nature by representing harmony, growth and refinement.
