According to the fashion color gods at Pantone (still our dream job), Spring 2013 is all about feminine softness – fresh cool hues with pops of clear crisp brightness. Can you say refreshing? We know, fall hasn’t even started yet, but the fashion industry is all about what’s coming NEXT – so here’s your cheat sheet on what to expect when the snow melts this Spring.

Lemon Zest

Well, lemon is delicious – is this Pantone color report making anyone else hungry? – but the word zest is what really gets us going. It’s indicative of energy, liveliness, pizazz! We dig pizazz, and so we’ll be wearing our Lemon Zest in the form of a fabulous blouse paired with, say, a cream colored pencil skirt, or perhaps in a gorgeous supple handbag to pump up our spring basics.
