The Pantone Corporation released their color for 2011: Honeysuckle 18-2120, a medley of deep pinks and reds.
Any fashion trend that you see this spring will have the same common thread: Color. Any fashion publication, celebrity news report or stylist will tell you that ‘brights are in and drab is out’.

Is your closet a black hole of darkness? Black shoes, tops, pants, skirts and dresses? Do you have the common closet with all blacks or neutrals? Are you guilty of staying inside your ‘color’ comfort zone?

This season’s fashion trends could help you get out of that no-color rut.

First, let’s look at how the colors are conceived. Who or what is responsible for mixing and creating new and trendy colors?

All color enthusiasts bow to one superior power: Pantone. The Pantone Corporation provides color inspiration and ideas to businesses around the world. Interior, fashion, auto and advertising are just some of the many industries that use Pantone color services and products to transpire their ideas to customers. The thousands of colors that are born from Pantone each year give us the creative freedom to exhibit palettes and color stories that bring products to life beyond words.

Pantone has just announced their ‘color of the year’ as Honeysuckle 18-2120. This perfect medley of deep pinks and reds has set the color trend for designers in the upcoming year. Women’s wear designers Badgley Mischka and Nanette Lapore are a few of the fashion houses who have used this color in their collections for Spring 2011.

‘Honeysuckle’ has been described by the Pantone experts as inviting, inspiring and alive. You can learn more about this color by clicking here or create your own color palettes for your wardrobe at the Pantone website.

If you are trying to figure out which colors look best on you, try using your skin, eye and hair color to determine the colors that are best for your wardrobe. You can start by sorting through what you already own and analyzing which colors make you look vivacious or drab. This will help you figure out the best color palette when shopping for new pieces.

Please visit or visit for a personal color analysis from a professional image consultant. By learning more about which colors look best on you, clearer decisions can be made about the messages you want to send to others about your personality and personal style.

Inspire yourself this new year by taking the time to figure out which colors are right for you.

Weed out the colors in your wardrobe that don’t work well with your coloring and discard the black. You will find that your mood and energy will change in your professional and personal life for the better when colors compliment you.
