This is the second color trend review from a series of three on the Pantone color trend predictive for Spring 2009 . This set is warm and vibrant. A mod green that was wildly popular in the late 1950's and 1960's is shown first. Greens: celery, grass, avocado, olive, and other natural tones were often paired with a turqoise or other warm blues during the 1960's. The result? A young, vibrant and crisp duo. Another pairing is with pink, especially the hot type, for a wild mod look. When looking for this coloring, try the 1960's and early 1970's, where it won't disapoint! [Dark Citron: 16-0435]
It's no coincidence that spring's first color is so often a 'look at me' yellow. In vintage fashion bright yellow shows up in every decade where brights are found. You can dilute the effect by choosing this bright tone within a print, where it can pick up any outfit or accent a deeper hue. [Super Lemon: 14-0754]
Salmon, grapefruit, melon, peach and other warm tones of pink were so popular in the 1980's. Once again, they are coming into popular use. If this pink seems too bright, wear it in small doses: a top, scarf or belt. This hot color compliments skin tones and brings out a warmth and glow that is always flattering. [Salmon Rose: 15-1626]
