Every season, Pantone releases their Fashion Color Report to coincide with the beginning of New York Fashion Week. The report features the top 10 colors for women’s fashion that season and is sourced directly from designer sketches.
For Spring 2010, the top colors ranged from brights, like a buttercup yellow or turquoise, to neutrals, like a sage green and a pale grey. We decided to match Pantone’s top ten colors with ten cheap and chic nail colors. Get painting!
