The best spring colors of 2011 are trendy shades of classic colors. From home to fashion, these colors will signal the end of winter. Spring is already full of color, as flowers bloom, and the spirit of the season is alive in these color choices.
The foremost color for the season is Honeysuckle Pink. It was voted color of the year for 2011 by color authority Pantone. It’s a bright shade of pink with an almost reddish hue. It brings to mind health, vigor and energy.
Another popular color for the spring of 2011 is orange. But not just any orange, a juicy persimmon shade of orange. Pantone calls this color Coral Rose. If you can’t pull off an entire garment in such a bold color, consider bright and bold accessories instead.
Yellow is another tricky shade to pull off. But it works for more fashion choices when it’s this spring’s light buttery yellow. Pantone named a bright Beeswax color to its list for the year.
Blue is a perennial favorite no matter what the season. But for spring, it’s a pale yet vigorous blue shade that suggests cloudless skies. Pantone calls it Regatta, and it’s a shade that looks good in tops, pants, shoes, bags and even household paint!
Lavender is another elegant spring hue that you can wear or decorate with. Pantone doesn’t even need a special name for this classic color. They have simply dubbed it Lavender. This grayish purple is sophisticated yet stalwart.
Pantone also named a green to their trend list. Peapod green is light and fresh, and would work well as a necktie, pair of shoes or tight pencil skirt.
Lastly, as far as fashion goes, white is another color to keep an eye out for this spring. It always suggests purity, cleanliness and newfound energy. Pair a white outfit with a wrap in any of these other shades and you’ll be set for spring.
