Pantone has announced that "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."
Spring is often represented as a time of rebirth. A time where people are optimistic for a brighter day and feel a great sense of renewal. Color helps people alter their mood and gives them the opportunity to try out new looks and color combinations.
The Pantone fashion color report for Spring 2012 announces the following colors and we like what we're seeing!
Tangerine Tango is a "vivacious and appealing refresher to enliven anyone's outlook this spring."
Solar Power provides a jolt of energy and radiates warmth and cheer.
