That’s right. Here it is. The TOP color for Spring 2013 as named by PANTONE has been crowned. No surprise it’s blue: Monaco Blue in fact. The shade is “not a bright cobalt or sapphire blue, Monaco Blue falls somewhere in between with a shot of sparkle.”
Pantone Color Institute executive director, Leatrice Eiseman, explains that the shade “speaks to the practicality that we are seeing in society. You have to realize there is still concern out there for the economy.” We are not really sure what the color really has to do with the state of the economy, but we still like it!
So get a leg up on spring and start snapping up all the Monaco Blue items you can now, preferably on sale! Or just be a fashion leader and start wearing it now!
