Pantone’s Top 10 Color Trends for Spring 2012
5. Starfish (Pantone color number 16-1120)
This deep khaki is the perfect backdrop and works well as a solid base with dynamic accents such as Sodalite, Tangerine Tango, Solar Power and Cabaret. This practical neutral radiates warmth so naturally that it will be one of the major players for Spring 2012 for both women and men. Khaki makes me think of sandy beaches…and hot dessert retreats. The color is the perfect transition from the cold winter season. Starfish should become a staple in your wardrobe – you can take your look casual or sophisticated depending on how you pair it with accessories or the other pieces of your wardrobe. I like it because it is adaptable in many styles and easy to jazz up with the vibrant colors associated with the Spring 2012 collection. Incorporate this shade on top of your brighter colors or try a layered look for a more feminine touch. Whether you choose a khaki trench coat or earthy suede clutch, neutral colors can work for anyone and with any spring look.
