Honeysuckle: Not just a pretty flower
Last year it was Turquoise. This year Pantone has announced the colour for 2011 is Honeysuckle.
I think the important things to remember when it comes to the colour Honeysuckle, is that it's not just pink. Then they would have said so! There's a slightly red, and sometimes even orange, tint to it.
It was so funny coming across the Pantone site yesterday, as I was sitting in the office with a honeysuckle coloured top! It's a sleeveless top with crochet detail on the neckline, and I picked it up for a song not too long ago! Wonder if the store owner knew it would become so popular? ;)
And then, if you want to add just a hint of this amazing colour to your look - go to Clicks and grab a bottle of Essence nail colour. Again I bought this before knowing the colour trends! They have the perfect shade, at only R40 a pop.
And guess what? It works well with last year's colour, Turquoise!
