spring colors 2011

IF ALL YOU’VE BEEN WEARING this past winter has been black, brown, a little red, and then some more black, that means it’s time to alter your game plan for spring. Downplay the neutrals and play up bright colors because this season, it’s all about color. Pantone, the world’s color authority reported the top colors to be barberry/honeysuckle pink, fire orange, beeswax orange, Caribbean blue and lavender, along with five other breezy shades (seen above).

Why go bright? It’s an instant mood booster, symbolizes optimism and allows you to show off a playful side. But this doesn’t mean you need to look like you came out of a Skittles bag. If you’re a bit color shy, use bright colors as accents and you’ll get the same benefits.
