Every year, we eagerly anticipate Pantone’s Color of the Year, as well as their seasons color reports. We loved the Spring/Summer palette for this year, and the Fall/Winter colors DO NOT disappoint! With a few bright accents, this season is all about beautifully muted neutrals that perfectly balance modern and classic.

Amethyst Orchid

Cashmere Rose

Cadmium Orange

cadmium orangeWe’re always excited to see orange in a color report! It’s a color that doesn’t get enough love, in our opinion. The color is perfect for a statement necklace, or even a skirt or dress. For extra trendy bonus points, pair it with Stormy Weather or Reflecting Pond for a perfect preppy fall look. We love shades of orange and dark blue together!

 

Marsala (Color of the Year)

marsalaWe’re going to be sad with 2015 ends, because we can’t get enough of Marsala. This beautiful burgundy works as a neutral, but still stands out on its own. Just get Marsala everything before it’s gone. This color never gets old!

 

 

Biscay Bay

Oak Buff

Stormy Weather

stormy weatherWe love Stormy Weather the song, and we love Stormy Weather the color! We’d love to have a chic blazer in this color, or a pair of cute leggings. It’s an endless versatile shade, and is a great foundation for any outfit.

 

 

Reflecting Pond

stormy weatherWe know this is a fashion blog, and we’re supposed to be talking about fashion and clothes……. but we’d really love this shade for our home! Who else could see this a beautiful duvet cover or throw rug? It would also be perfect for a fall bag!

 

 

Desert Sage

desert sageThis is the best chameleon color on this list. Is it gray? Is it blue? Is it green? Who cares, it’s lovely!! A pretty dress, or a new pair of pants would be perfect in this shade. Layer it with colors like Cashmere Rose or Marsala for a fabulous fall look!

 

 

Dried Herb
