Pantone Poppy Red

When I first looked at the Pantone colours for Spring 2013, Poppy Red sang out at me.  It’s such a fresh, warm shade of red, the kind that flatters both dark and fair skin types.  I had a feeling that Poppy Red could be an unexpected hit for summer weddings and over the past few weeks, have been noticing a growing red trend.

For an unforgettable power-packed punch, you could fully embrace red, Wang-style for yourself, or for your bridesmaids.

Or you could use red as an accent colour, in flowers or accessories.
