Every year, Pantone releases colors that they predict will be “hot” for the upcoming seasons. And when it comes to this spring, one of the ones on the very top of their trend list is Limpet Shell.
Yeah, don’t feel bad if you have absolutely no idea what that color is supposed to represent. To make it simple, it’s basically mint green and what we like so much about it is not only is it a bright and cheery color, but there are a myriad of different ways to wear it too.
1. White lace top and limpet shell knee-length skirt
Lace outfit ideas for spring: So, where would you find a lace stop like this one? We recommend going to a thrift store first. And once you do, then go on a search for a limpet shell skirt (too cute, too cute!). Avoid going with white or limpet shell shoes, though. Look for another sorbet shade like Creamsicle (which is what we think about when we look at those orange sandals). Then head out to get yourself a literal popsicle with your girls.
2. Off-white blazer, stripe tank and limpet shell skinny jeans
Polyvore outfit ideas for spring and summer: If the dress code at your job states that you can’t wear blue jeans, get around it by putting on some colored ones instead. Limpet shell is our spring/summer color suggestion. Add a blazer to it and also some pumps. That will help to make it more office appropriate.
3. Printed tank, distressed jeans and limpet shell jacket
Polyvore outfit ideas: Do you have a tank top that you just can’t wait to wear, but the temperature outside is encouraging you to? Something that you can do to make it workable is to put on a cardigan or cover-up and if it’s in the color of limpet shell, you’ll look perfect for spring. And summer! And don’t be afraid of completing the look with dark leather. Just make sure that it’s brown rather than black. It will blend…better.
4. Long limpet shell tank, flare jeans and white cover-up
We’re super fond of the extra-long tank top. We’re even fonder of floral print flats. And if you can find a way to bring limpet shell into either way, hey! We’re all for it! Looking for a white cover-up is a…refreshing way to showcase your colorful tank in a bit of a unique fashion. Especially on the nights when the temperatures are cooler than most.
5. Limpet shell and gold
Outfit ideas for spring: Before we saw this outfit, if someone had tried to convince us that limpet shell and gold (colored clothing) would look good together, we definitely wouldn’t have believed them. But yeah, we’re pretty convinced now. They key is not to overdo it. For instance, if you’re going to wear a gold tank top, don’t put on a matching gold blazer. You’d be better off with a neutral color instead.
6. Limpet shell wrap linen dress and bone accessories
Wedding exquisite. That’s the best way to describe this outfit. And who would’ve thought that limpet shell would be so pretty in a linen fabric. And bone? Yeah, accenting this dress with a bone-colored belt…well, just make sure that you don’t upstage the bride with a look like this!
7. Limpet shell blouse and distressed jean skirt
If you’re a teacher and you like your jean skirt, here’s one way that your school’s dress code might give you a pass. Match it up with a silk shirt, maybe one that is limpet shell color. The silk material will have you on-trend and silk oftentimes goes really well with silk.
8. Limpet shell skinny jeans, floral blouse and cardigan
Spring outfit ideas for women: Speaking of teacher (or other office) outfits, this is another limpet shell variation. If your mom or grandma gave you a blouse and/or a cardigan that you think is a bit, umm, mature-looking, you can “young it up” with some colored jeans. Especially if they are ones that are limpet shell colored.
9. Sheer limpet shell blouse and taupe slacks
Definitely one of the best outfits for work when it’s burning up outside. And look at how it combines so many spring and summer fashion trends: limpet shell in the top, taupe for the slacks and animal print for the slacks. Silver or gold jewelry will work with this.
10. Floral tank, taupe cardigan and limpet shell skinny jeans
A weekend lunch is perfect as it relates to this outfit. With a floral tank similar to this one, you’ll blend in quite well with the spring flowers that are in bloom. Of course, you can wear some limpet shell shoes to go along with your limpet shell skinny jeans. Another option is to pull out another color from the floral pattern—just to have more options.
11. Limpet shell sheer blouse and white skinny jeans
In the summer, a limpet shell sheer blouse and some white skinny jeans are a splendid casual wear outfit. You can even add to it a “fancy” purse if you want the outfit to look more “dressy casual” than…casual. (Nude sandals are great too if you have a new pedicure!)
12. Buttercup and limpet shell ensemble
Two popular colors this season are buttercup and limpet shell. So, why not combine them together? If you do, here’s an example of the results that you’ll get. Honestly, we don’t know if there’s more that needs to be said to “sell” this.
13. White tank top, limpet shell skinny jeans and brown leather strap heels
White tank top, limpet shell skinny jeans and brown leather strap heels/via
Every woman should want to run out and get some limpet skinny jeans when they see how to combine them with a white tank top and a pair of brown leather strap heels. It’s a good-looking outfit that is affordable and comfortable too.
14. Limpet shell tulle skirt and matching tank top
Tulle and weddings (or a formal shower or tea) seem to go so well together, don’t they? And there’s something that’s so special about a tulle skirt that is the color of limpet shell. You’ll be beaming as you swish and sway the day and night away.
15. Strapless limpet shell maxi dress with big straw hat
Are you going to a beach-side restaurant or maybe just spending the day at a friend’s poolside? You can put on this limpet shell strapless maxi dress either as an outfit or as a wonderful cover-up for your bathing suit. Don’t forget to take along a colorful straw bag and big straw hat. The first for your suntan lotion and lip gloss. The second to protect your hair and face from the sun’s rays.
16. Beige dresses with limpet shell accessories
A beige dress in two ways. And limpet shell accessories in a myriad of ways. Now are you seeing how it really is a good idea to add limpet shell to your wardrobe? There really is no (good) reason to not give it a try!
17. Taupe dress and limpet shell strappy heels
This is SOOOOOOOOOO attractive! As you saw in the previous shot, taupe and nude colors are in fashion, so a silk dress like this one is extremely popular. But what we can’t get our eyes off of is how those tri-tone limpest shell heels stand out against it. Whether you wear this for work or for play, you’ll have all sorts of people telling you how amazing you look. Head to toe.
18. Limpet shell skinny jeans and taupe top
Do you have a dinner meeting to go to and you’re not quite sure what to wear? All you know is that you’d prefer not to put on a suit? Here’s a suggestion: some colored jeans, a dressy top and a matching blazer. And whether it’s the “top” or “bottom”, you’ll receive plenty of compliments if it’s in limpet shell.
19. Limpet shell dress with fun accessories
We appreciate polyvore pictures like this one because it shoes you different ways to work the same article of clothing. On the left side, the nude shoes and purse make this limpet shell dress youthful and casual. On the other hand, the right dresses things up for a more mature look. (Those bracelets are must-haves!)
20. Limpet shell blazer and pumps with light blue jeans
By no means are we saying that a limpet shell blazer is going to be super easy to find. Although being that it is a trending color right now, you should be able to find it online even if you can’t at a local store. Same goes for the shoes. And yeah, try it with a crisp white color. It’s so cool. Looking.
21. Limpet shell spaghetti strap dress with gold heels
Is your man plan on taking you to dinner? You’ll get compliments all night long in a little limpet shell number like this one and some strappy metallic heels. Pay attention the most minute details by coloring your nails gold and putting on some gold hoops too.
22. Limpet shell razor back tank and khaki shorts
What a cute way to go hiking, backpacking or even hanging out at a local coffee shop with some friends. Limpet shell as a top is a happy color and the khaki and nude additions help you to see limpet shell in a whole new light. In our personal opinion, it’s one of the best color combinations for limpet shell.
23. Limpet shell top and paisley maxi skirt
Paisley was a pretty popular print last year but that doesn’t mean that you should get rid of any of the paisley clothing that you already have. One of the ways to get more wear out an old trend is to incorporate it with a newer one. For example this limpet shell sleeveless top is lovely with a paisley maxi skirt.
