Pantone predicted the color of 2012 as Tangerine Tango, a gorgeous vibrant orange. Too bad we didn’t see much of their prediction on the runway this NYFW season. But what I did spot was lots of chartreuse.
What is chartreuse? Good question. It’s a color halfway between yellow and green that was named because of its resemblance to the green/yellow color of a French liqueur. I’ve seen this color a lot in home decor. My bathroom colors are actually turquoise and chartreuse. So the color may not be new to you but perhaps new to your closet.
The only bad thing about this color is that it doesn’t quite photograph as well as it appears. But I love the color trend just the same.
Check out my fav pieces from designers who nailed this trend.
Well you’ve seen my favorites, so chime in… will you be adding chartreuse to your closet?
