Ready, Set, FALL!

Ready, set FALL!  Raise your hand if you’re ready for Fall!  I am definitely getting excited for the coming season!   A new season brings a another opportunity to reinvent your wardrobe and try new looks!   As far as the retail world goes Fall fashions have been flooding stores for the past month or so, however if you are like me I’m just now actually starting to pull together my Fall wardrobe.  Up until this point each year I have a solid look but don’t buy policy!  As much as I want to I find it difficult to purchase Fall items that I can’t wear just yet.  I’m here in Atlanta and it is still 95 degrees, so there are still a lot of shorts and dresses in rotation.  The thought of buying that new sweater and hanging on to it for another month or two just doesn’t jive with my personality!   I use this “transition period” to plan for Fall meanwhile taking advantage of end of other end of the season deals!   Through the course of my planning I’ve identified some gotta have pieces which I’ll share later.  I wanted to spend  a little time now talking about the colors you’ve undoubtedly have seen for the coming season because you will continue to see them everywhere!

For Fall 2016 think rich, sophisticated shades of reds, greens, browns, dusty pinks (yay!), blues and grays– super luxe and sophisticated!!  I’m loving the dusty pinks, grays and greens!

Pantone identified the palette below as the top 10 colors of the Fall 2016 season.   Pantone calls the below:  Riverside, Airy Blue, Sharkskin, Aurora Red, Warm Taupe, Dusty Cedar, Lush Meadow, Spicy Mustard, Potter’s Clay, Bodacious.

You will see variations of these hues and different interpretations throughout the season, for example I’ve seen so many varying shades of the beautiful and lush green shown in the palette above!  All so gorgeous, which is your favorite? .  Some of my own personal thoughts on the colors I’m eyeing for Fall based on the above palette!
