Mimosa … it’s the color for 2009

Rumor has it (NY Fashion Week and the Pantone Fall 2009 color forecast) that colors will be muted rather than the bright, flashy metallics and jeweled tones that we’ve been seeing for a couple of seasons. I’m fine with going back to the basic classic colors. I could live in all black with touches of (blue) red and white for that matter. Added bonus, you don’t have to buy as many clothes – you can mix and match with accessories and wear the same basic suits.

Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize … it’s going to be your mantra for fall shopping! The disadvantage? If you have coloring like mine and you don’t look good in muted tones. Well, black and white are going to be your favorite colors again.



And the color of the year? Mimosa and I quote ….

“Best illustrated by the abundant flowers of the Mimosa tree and the sparkle of the brilliantly hued cocktail, the 2009 color of the year represents the hopeful and radiant characteristics associated with the color yellow. Mimosa is a versatile shade that coordinates with any other color, has appeal for men and women and translates to both fashion and interiors.”

Yes it certainly is a vibrant hue.
