“Now more than ever, women are vigilant when it comes to spending . . . instead of re-inventing their wardrobe at the start of each season, consumers want pieces to complement what they already own. Pairing a bold color with a basic piece or freshening up their look with bright accents addresses the need for practicality, as well as fun.” - Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®

According to Pantone, the colors for this Spring are: turquoise, tomato puree, fusion coral, violet, tuscany, aurora, amparo blue, pink champagne, dried herb and eucalyptus--which are, in fact: turquoise, red, coral, violet, beige, yellow, navy, cream, neutral green and gray, respectively.

Per Pantone, the color of the year is turquoise! I cant wait to pair a big chunky turquoise necklace with a silk coral jumper.
