A Touch of Color

The Pantone Institute of Color has created their color report for Fall and I am ready to give you the tell-all. To begin, I must tell you exactly how Pantone describes this color group in the following.

The desire for strength, tranquility, and opimism, have inspired a Fall 2016 color palette that is led by the blue family.*

Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections. Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades.*

Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.*

The two blue shades, Airy Blue and Riverside bring freedom and calmness to your wardrobe. While Airy Blue is a light blue, Riverside is a bit darker with consistency and excitement all at once.

Pink is staying for the fall as I mentioned in a previous blog, which will go great with the new Dusty Cedar. It’s a rose-toned pink with a few complex shades that go great with taupe.

A shade close to taupe, Spicy Mustard, makes the list to spice  things up a bit. Wear it to bring a vibrant feeling into fall to prove that not all fall colors, especailly this year, have to be dark and dull. In fact most of them, especailly the ones mentioned, are lively and beautiful.
