Spring Fashion Colors—2012

Shades of tangerine, red, and cerise are among this year's spring fashion colors.

Shades of orange, purple, red, and blue are featured in this spring’s fashions according to the color experts at Pantone. Designers rely on Pantone’s color report and home sewers can use it sew the latest fashion colors.

Amy Butler Disco Flower Tangerine is perfect for spring and summer dresses.

Vivacious Tangerine Tango is a striking orange hue, while Solar Power is a cheery, sunny yellow. Bellflower is a delightful shade of purple. Cabaret is a rosy red, and the color is popular in both spring fashions and makeup.

If you love the new fashion color Cockatoo, you'll love this Aqua Eyelet. It is perfect for adult and children's dresses.

Sodalite Blue is variation on classic ocean or navy blue. It is a unique neutral color that works well with any other shade. Cockatoo is beautiful blue-green. It is sure to strike your fancy if you are like me and enjoy turquoise.

Margarita is a yellow-green, while Sweet Lilac is a lovely lilac shade. Driftwood is a blend of grey and beige. Starfish is a lovely tan neutral.

Home sewers can mix these shades together for a lovely effect. For example, Pantone recommends pairing Sodalite Blue with Solar Power. Cockatoo and Sweet Lilac work well together, especially if you like a classic spring flowers effect.
