Orange - It's Your Time

If you like to stay a few steps ahead, take note: the Pantone Color Institute has just revealed the top ten colors you should—read: will—be wearing come spring. They are: Tangerine Tango, a juicy orange hue; Solar Power, a warm yellow hue; Sodalite Blue, a maritime blue hue; Cabaret, an intense rosy-red hue; Starfish, a warm neutral hue; Margarita, a piquant yellow-green hue; Sweet Lilac, a pinkish lilac hue; Driftwood, a beige-grey blend; Bellflower, an ornamental purple; and Cockatoo, a spirited blue-green. So, now you know which colors to look for, tell me: which color is your favorite?

Pantone's color of the year….and it’s Tangarine Orange. Oh Yes, it’s about time my favorite color made it to the top of the list. So for this Spring you can throw on that touch of sweet orange and go for it. This is the entire palette and there are some charming color combinations to be had here. If you don’t think so check out Pantone’s great designers and see what they’ve whipped up with them.

Designer's have already got that Spring Line into full production...

I love orange,too, but I rarely wear it. I am simply obsessed with it! Thanks for sharing.

It is always time for orange - been my favourite colour since the 1980's (when everyone used to tell me I "should wear blue"!.). I'm not sofussed on the 'nylon bright' type of orange - more the rusts, burnt & pumpkin shades.

I mourn the years/seasons when the fashion houses don't deem it 'fashionable' & we see little of it in the stores. Just as well I don't run with whats fashionable I guess :)

YAY orange!! Everyone & every home should have some - such a cheerful uplifting colour :)
