Pantone Fall/Winter 2012 Color Trends! (Part 2) November 19, 2012

Alrighty, so as promised (although I think I might be a little late, haha) I’m back with the second half of my Fall/Winter color trend post 😛

Hope you guys enjoy!

Ok, so just in case you guys forgot what the color palette was, here it is again! And we’re picking up at Bright Chartreuse (which happens to be one of my favorite colors :P)

Bright Chartreuse: So, Bright Chartreuse is not only one of my favorite colors (yes, I am a little biased :P) one of those fun colors that makes everything pop, but is a lot more subtle than Tangerine Tango. For more of a monochromatic look, pair it with Ultramarine Green, or with Rhapsody for a fresh, but quieter look. To experiment with this color, try the following.

“Did It On Em” by O.P.I (from the Nicki Minaj Collection :P)

 

 

 

 

Olympian Blue: Olympian Blue is a more modern take on the traditional blues, such as Marine, Navy, and Baby Blue, and it’s a color that might stick around for a while (it’s so much looser and more fun than most blues, haha). Pair it with Tangerine Tango for a bold, graphic look, or with Titanium to introduce a neutral. To experiment with this color, try the following.

“Blue my Mind” by O.P.I

 

 

 

Titanium: Titanium is one of those great colors that will go with anything! A lighter color trend than gunmetal, it’s versatile, as it can be either commanding or subtle. To make a commanding statement, pair it with French Roast or Honey Gold, or make a subtle statement by pairing it with Rose Smoke or Pink Flambe. To experiment with this color, try the following.

“Nein Nein Nein Ok Fine” by O.P.I. (from the Germany Collection)

 

 

 

 

Rhapsody: Rhapsody is an adorable color that emodies the wistful dreamer. It’s a quiet color that lends a serene, calming air to any outfit, especially when paired with colors like Ultramarine Green or Rose Smoke. For a more modern look, pair it with Honey Gold. To experiment with this color, try the following.

“Do You Lilac It” by O.P.I

Rose Smoke: Rose Smoke is a color similar to Rhapsody, but it has more of a girly pink feel. Pair it with French Roast for a feminine look with a little power, or with Ultramarine Green for a laidback look. To experiment with this color, try the following.

“Bubble Bath” by O.P.I

Alright, well I’ve come to the end of the Pantone all/Winter 2012 color trends post… Hope you all enjoyed it and that you’ll try some of these colors out this season! Thanks so much for reading!!
