"Must Have" Pantones of Spring 2010

Is winter over yet?! Even though I love wrapping up my oversized, large-neck, cozy sweaters with a cup of tea, I am anxiously awaiting bright bursts of poppy (Cayenne, PANTONE 18-1651), coral (Fusion Coral PANTONE 16-1543), and turquoise (Turquoise PANTONE 15-5519) this spring. These colors are just amazing against sun-kissed skin.

According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® (yes, this is how I get to tap into my graphic design resources when it comes to fashion):
“Now more than ever, women are vigilant when it comes to spending. Instead of reinventing 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.”
