Monaco Blue leads Pantone's spring 2013 fashion colors

PantonePantone Color Institute recently unveiled its top 10 women's fashion colors for spring 2013, and leading the pack is Monaco Blue.

Pantone describes the shade as "not a bright cobalt or sapphire blue, Monaco Blue falls somewhere in between with a shot of sparkle."

According to Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, the shade "speaks to the practicality that we are seeing in society. You have to realize there is still concern out there for the economy."

The top 10 fashion colors for spring 2013 also include Dusk Blue, Emerald, Grayed Jade, Linen, Poppy Red, African Violet, Tender Shoots, Lemon Zest and Nectarine.
