(Newser) – Prepare to be pretty in ... honeysuckle. The hot pink shade has been dubbed the color of the year for 2011 by color know-it-all Pantone. It predicts we'll see the shade, described by the Wall Street Journal as a "sherbety pink with a hint of red and orange zest," popping up on the runway, at Crate & Barrel, on our nails, and more. Designers see it as an antidote to the sometimes-gloominess of our reality: "There's an innate optimism to pink," says designer Jonathan Adler. "As we speak, I'm wearing a hot pink shirt."
