Pantone may have trumpeted coral as “the” color for fall 2010, but personally, I just can’t get enough! So don’t pack away those coral pieces quite yet; use them to freshen your spring look paired with floral skirts, denim or even business attire.

Coral is one of those amazing chameleon colors that manages to look great on everyone – regardless of skin or hair color. The depth of the color and warmth of the hue vary, so a “bluer” tone or a “yellower” one is sure to work well and keep you right on trend.

Success with coral is all about the combinations… Coral and crisp white is a chic alternative to pink and white for the weekend. Coral with turquoise (another perennial fave) is beach inspired and perfect for that new swimsuit. Coral plus chocolate brown adds instant sophistication to office wear.

New to the color and not ready to take the plunge? Add just one of the affordable accessories above and I guarantee you’ll be hooked!
