The Year Of Honeysuckle

February 28, 2011

Did you know that Pantone announces a “color of the year?”

Me neither.

And did you know that “honeysuckle” is bright pink?

Me neither. I would have guessed yellow.


Last year’s color was turquoise, but apparently this year’s color is supposed to “emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor.” Ambitious goals for a color, eh?

I’d have to say I’m pretty excited for this color. It’s so bright and fun compared to the horrendously grey winter we are coming off of. The Pantone site offers ideas of how to incorporate this color into fashion, home decor, and even packaging.


I even saw an article this morning on workout gear in Honeysuckle!

  • What do you think of this year’s color?
  • How are you going to incorporate it into your wardrobe?

I’m totally seeing bright tops, fun shoes, and dresses!

    yay, honeysuckle! I love pinks! Corals tend to really compliment my skin tone so this is good news.

    I’ll probably try and incorporate honeysuckle into my wardrobe with sundresses and into my makeup with fun lip glosses :D.

    When I envision honey-suckle I think of a more deep yellowish. That’s a cute color though! (And oddly enough, a cute name for a pet).
