Every year, Pantone anoints a "Color of the Year." Then that color gets a little crown made of paint chips and tears run down its face as it waves to all the other color swatches from atop a slowly moving Epson printer on wheels.

No, really nothing happens, except a bunch of weird announcements and trend pieces are done. Last year's color was turquoise, which is already pushing it. This year's color is honeysuckle.

What now?

Let's investigate. Here is a picture of ACTUAL HONEYSUCKLE:

It looks white, right? But whatever, maybe this is just a deceptive picture. Maybe that's a rare albino honeysuckle.

Here's the color according to Pantone:

You're probably thinking to yourself, "I HAVE TO GET ON THIS HONEYSUCKLE TREND." Don't worry, we're here to help! Here are some ways to incorporate honeysuckle into your wardrobe and onto your body:
This lipstick is literally called "Honeysuckle." You can't get any more on the nose than that (unless you put the lipstick on your nose, HA!). Seriously though, Bobbi Brown make-up is good.

This pretty Michael Kors dress is a great wardrobe staple for anyone who is a secret lady ninja assassin who goes to fancy galas and then also has to do flying front-kicks into people's faces. If your right leg needs to go at a 170-degree angle at any point during your evening, this is the perfect dress.

Probably don't do this.

In conclusion, the more you write the word "honeysuckle" the funnier it looks and sounds in your mind.
