Pantone Fall 2011 Deep Teal Vintage Lingerie

For over 40 years,
has predicted color trends in everything from graphics to cars. For the last fourteen, they "diversified" to fashion, with trend setting colors for every season. Its always fun to get a sneak peek of the colors, see the new names for them and watch each color transition into society.

Its also fun to see what goes around comes around. Many popular colors from the 60s are hot again this year, like avocado green and harvest gold, re named and the hues changed a bit.

Always a blue / green person, my favorite is the Deep Teal.. a color that looks great on anyone, from blonde to brunette and there's a shade of teal perfect for everyone! Here are just a few vintage lingerie items available at

in different styles ~ and different shades of teal.

Find Trendy Pantone Fall Colors in Classic Vintage Clothing

Nougat Tiered Ruffle 60s Cord Peasant Jumper Dress XS S

For 14 years,
has set the color trends in fashion, even longer for cars and household item color trends working two years in advance.

This year the 2011 colors seem especialy exciting. Colors from the 60s return, tweaked a little and of course, given much more attractive names. If you remember the old "harvest gold" appliances your parents had in the 60s, it is now similar to "Bamboo" and a rich, beautiful hue. "Avacodo" is very similar to Cedar, and if you love greens, you will adore this shade.

Offering both Trendy Fashion colors for Men and Women, here is the women's chart~
