A report from Pantone features the Top 10 colors for women’s fashion for spring 2012, which are Tangerine Tango, Solar Power, Bellflower, Cabaret, Sodalite Blue, Margarita, Sweet Lilac, Cockatoo, Driftwood and Starfish. The colors encapsulate vivid brights, fun-loving pastels and soft, muted tones. They are pulled from the most widely used color standards system in the world: the Pantone Fashion + Home color system.

Pantone surveyed designers to collect feedback on prominent collection colors, color inspiration and color philosophy, and used this information to create the report. This will serve as a reference tool for fashion enthusiasts, reporters and retailers to use throughout the year.
