Pantone's Color of the Year 2009 - Mimosa

The Pantone Color Institute is where color trends are made. They have teams and experts that evaluate colors and announce their picks (including Color of the Year) which industries such as fashion and home furnishings and accessories use for their new season. The Color of the Year for 2009 is Mimosa - a Vibrant Yellow. From the Pantone website "Mimosa Embodies Hopefulness and Reassurance in a Climate of Change". If you want to read all the details of the announcement you can folow this link:

Although Pantone always announces their Color of the Year in December, I'm writing about it now because I think this color works great for Summer and Fall fashions. Some experts also say that Eurpoe is the first to adopt these trends, and the US usually follows about a year behind. But now that you know the 2009 pick, you spot the most Fashion Forward outfits and accessories NOW. It's not hard for me to adopt this color into my wardrobe and jewelry because I love the color Yellow! It might even be the new "black" for Summer and Fall!

You can find great jewelry options to coordinate with your Fabulous Fashion Forward outfits at my etsy shop All the jewelry is handmade by me and I will be incorporating more "Mimosa" inspired pieces so you have many choices.

Happy Shopping!
