Get the Look - Honeysuckle is the Color of 2011

In 2011, Nicki Minaj will have a reason to celebrate in the world of fashion.  Her signature color has been announced as the color of 2011.  The fashion gods of the Pantone Color Institute declared "honeysuckle" as the next big color.  Now when I think of honeysuckle, I see an orange-yellow color, but in fashion, it is a vibrant shade of pink and red.  According to the announcement, honeysuckle was chosen to "denote energy and the essence of hope."

Whether you're in love with this color like I am, or you're not too sure about it, I have you covered.

If you want to start out with this trend in small doses, here are two outfits that will still keep the trend alive in your closet.  A casual outfit pops with the burst of honeysuckle, but keep the rest of your outfit light with ivory and light gold accessories.  If you invest in a basic tee shirt, you can take it into nighttime by wearing it tucked into a light colored bandage skirt.  Accessorize with light jewelry and shoes, and you're good to go!  According to James Mischka, for the Badgley Mishcka line, the reddish-pink shade can fashionably be worn all year long, however it does not pair well with black.

Now, if you're willing to take a headfirst dive into this trend, here are two outfits to get you started.  On the left, a cowl neck halter dress in the bright color is the focal point of the outfit.  Simple silver accessories won't take away from the dress; instead, they add a sparkling touch.  On the right, a deeper honeysuckle hue is perfect with black (notice the subdued brightness of the dress).  Add black tights, leather boots, and a moto jacket to add a rock-and-roll vibe to the outfit.

 Here are some beauty buys and accessories to get you started.
