That chart gives you a general idea of the colors, but I'll go more in depth with each color and give a brief description to help you along. They usually have the individual colors posted, but this year they did things a little differently and it was difficult to find the swatches. But that's ok, we'll just improvise, right? Right.
1. Tangerine Tango
This was Pantone's 2011 Color of the Year. It's a beautiful reddish orange color that is sure to brighten up your wardrobe.
2. Solar Power
A bright and cheerful yellowy gold shade. This will definitely add a pop of color to your closet and will guarantee you stand out in a crowded room!
A delicate and soft purple. There's nothing "lavender" about this, so don't get it twisted; Bellflower can hold it's own against the blues and greens of the color world.
A punchy pink hue that adds an extra "oomphy" of girlyness to any wardrobe.
5. Sodalite Blue
The most perfectly preppy navy blue you've ever seen.
Just like the drink-but without the hangover. A light and airy green.
7. Sweet Lilac
The perfect soft purpley-pink for Spring.
A dark, muted gray that won't remind you of April showers.
Light brown is back! My new favorite neutral.
A dark aqua shade that will remind you of crystal blue waters and skies.
What's your favorite? I really love Driftwood and Bellflower, although I think all the colors this season are gorg.
The next couple posts, I'll focus more in depth on the colors and find some pieces to bring these colors to life. If you find anything on your own, feel free to share! Until then...happy shopping!
