About This Quiz

It seems like every year there is a different color making headlines as the color of the season. Pantone even goes as far as choosing a color for an entire year. Clothing is no different. During the fall and winter months, darker colors like maroon, black and grays are the colors of choice, while in the warmer months, people branch out and get a little more colorful. But then there are those colors that fly under the radar, the ones that are always in stock because people shy away from them for one reason or another.
