Today’s color spotlight is one of my favorite up-and-coming colors: Emerald. I am not sure if it’s because it reminds me of my favorite musical of all time, but I just really love this unexpected green hue. I have seen emerald popping up here and there in my favorite blogs and magazines – however I expect it is going to emerge as a big player in the next couple seasons to come. What do you think? Do you love emerald too?

This morning the today show was discussing a hair trend that I have loved for a few years now – the braid. Endless options and ways to wear make this a great trend for women of all ages. Above are some of our favorite looks found on the internet and below is the clip from this morning’s Today Show segment. Are you inspired to try any of these looks?
From the Pantone Website: “For spring 2012 designers are inspired by diverse influences, showcasing a range of styles and lifestyles, from free and playful and light and breezy, to contemporary classics. Colors likewise reflect these differing moods, encapsulating vivid brights, soft muted tones and fun-loving pastels.”
“Consumers look to spring for renewed energy, optimism and the promise of a brighter day,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “They have learned how color can help them alter a mood and provide the vitality and enthusiasm that enables them to experiment with new looks and color combinations.”
The Pantone Spring 2012 Color Report is out and it is fabulous! I am loving all of these colors and am especially excited to note that you will be seeing a lot of these hues in our new print release for Spring – which by the way I can’t wait to share with you all in a few months. Until then, I wanted to share with you which colors I am most excited about in this round up.
Tangerine Tango – Orange is going to be big this spring! It’s such a fun color and it will be interesting to see how retailers will embrace this color.
Cabaret – Doesn’t get much more fun than a hot pink! This color just screams Spring and Summer to me.
Sodalite Blue – You can never go wrong with a classic Navy. I especially love it paired with brights (like pink and turquoise) for spring and summer.
Cockatoo – Turquoise to me is always exciting (Blame it on the beautiful S. Fla weather!) and I am happy to see it still going strong moving in to Spring/Summer 12.
Driftwood & Starfish – Loving that these neutral hues are getting some attention. These neutrals serve as a great way to balance out some of the brighter colors for the season.
Check back later this week for my fashion week roundup featuring these colors in the designer runway collections!Tweet
