So the Spring 2013 Colors are out and I do believe I can successfully wear several:



In fact, bought an emerald sweater this morning (for my mother). And a pastel purple polo shirt. And blue shorts. I'm on a roll!!!

Our local sewing club, Fashionistas, is having a fabric challenge in early October ... we're to make a wearable item using the 2012 Pantone color of the year, tangerine tango, 17-1464.

Won't it be fun to see how 20-25 women work this color into a garment?

I love the colors, and the red on you is wonderful!! I didn't start wearing red until my late 30's--now I love it and wear it quite often. I feel so feisty in red. Emerald green is not my best color, but I could pull off the purple and yellow shades.

The pale lavender and linen colors really make me look blah, but the rest look pretty good.

I think the names are throwing me off (or my monitor is wrong). The "emerald" looks like teal to me, and "linen" appears to be pink?

I just became a brunette again after 10 years as a redhead, and it's been a lot of fun experimenting with dramatic new colors. I'll wait to see how these trends play out in spring RTW. (I'm not even ready for fall clothes yet! LOL)

I see the same - emerald is teal and linen is pink. I wish there were a way for all monitors to show colors true - especially when you are stuck having to buy most fabric online!
