If you’re like us, your favorite thing about spring is shopping for vibrant warm-weather outfits. Here are the first five colors the experts at the Pantone Color Institute say are vogue for Spring 2012, paired with Indian-inspired looks from our colorful collection!
Want to add some instant energy to your wardrobe? Then definitely try this red-orange shade, which was Pantone’s top pick for Spring 2012 and its 2012 Color of the Year. This Orange Cotton Silk Gota Suit by Kavita Bhartia has the same chic vibrancy as Tangerine Tango, with the added bonus of a funky gota border.
Nothing says spring like sunshine, and you’ll be beaming in this rich yellow hue that fits in perfectly with the traditional Indian fashion color palate. Want to get the Solar Storm look? Luxemi loves the cheerful, rich color of this Mango Salwar with Gota Embroidery by Nikasha.
The color experts at Pantone say that this classic dark blue shade was inspired by Elizabeth Taylor’s early films. You’ll look as iconic and sophisticated as Liz in this gorgeous Bhandhani Saree with a Peacock Border.
Luxemi absolutely loves this punchy, feminine hue! Cabaret is vibrant enough for daytime and rich enough for a night out, just like this Bandhani Saree with Gota Border from our collection.
Every fashionista needs a solid neutral color in her wardrobe, even during a season as lively as spring. We love the versatility of this dusty taupe shade and can’t think of a better color for a subtle, sophisticated saree look. Want a look with Starfish flair? Our Giraffe Print Sequined Saree by Satya Paul has the perfect blend of shine and texture, all in a gorgeous neutral color palate.
Whether you’re in love with vibrant Cabaret or prefer the classic sophistication of Sodalite Blue, Luxemi has a gorgeous saree or salwar in your favorite hue!
