Ok I have a confession to make. I still have most, if not all, of my summer clothes in my closet. I know that fall arrived a few weeks ago, but the weather has been marvelous! I mean the weather has been in the 80s…I am not wearing a sweater in 80 degree weather. The temperature drastically changed over the weekend and I found myself scrambling for long sleeved shirts, cardigans, and scarves and most of those are packed away.
I have been in the stores quite a bit. I took a little hiatus from shopping but August-October I have definitely exceeded my shopping budget. Anyway, if you haven’t started your fall shopping, you may want to know what the “IT” colors are for the season. In my honest opinion, for fall you can never go wrong with navy, burgundy, jewel tones, or forest green, in addition to your neutrals (black, white, and grey). This season Pantone’s color report falls in line with “the usuals.” Take a look at the full color report.
I think I am most excited about acai, vivacious, koi, samba, and mykonos blue. I LOVE color and most of the pieces that I have been purchasing align with what the color experts suggest.
Of course, just because these are the “IT” colors doesn’t mean you have to purchase anything in this color. You buy what compliments your skin tone first and foremost. Use this guide as a starting point if you are unsure of how to incorporate color in your wardrobe, or if you want to try something new.
