Color Report: Phlox

Today in our continuing series on Pantone's top 10 colors for Fall 2011, we look at Phlox. Like its flowery namesake, this rich shade of purple contains a great deal of magenta, tipping it close to the warm side of the color wheel. It's noticeably warmer than the deep purples of the amethyst gemstones, but both amethyst and purple glass will complement phlox-hued fashion accessories for a fun purple-splashed outfit.
