It's that time of year when we should be going through our closets and getting ready for the upcoming Fall season.  I thought this information provided by Ali Brown would help you pull  your look together while you get that closet organized...

"Five Fall Colors to Spice Up Your Look"


As the temperature drops and leaves change colors, it’s time to change your look as well. What better way to update your closet and turn over a new leaf (figuratively, of course) than by mixing in some of the season’s most stylish and on-trend colors?

Twice a year the Pantone Color Institute releases a color report setting the tone for home and fashion on the runways and in real life. This fall, they predict a mix of earthy and eye-catching hues that flatter on their own or inspire unexpectedly elegant combinations.

Here are five of fall’s most winning and wearable colors with tips on how to incorporate them into your closet.

1. Purple Orchid

Whether in a cashmere sweater or a chic cocktail dress, purple orchid makes a bold, beautiful look for fall, creating a regal, even mystical quality. Pair it with chocolate truffle for a luxurious evening look or with cream to create a more understated outfit for daytime.

2. Chocolate Truffle

The richness of this hue evokes indulgences from a fabulous Parisian bakery. How could you resist those juicy, plum-tinged undertones and that deliciously decadent finish? Wear Chocolate Truffle as an on-trend alternative to the Little Black Dress. Or invest in a pair of suede boots in this sumptuous shade.

3. Rose Dust

Romance is in the air as this alluring color casts its spell. Rose dust makes a flattering neutral for most people, whether in a pencil skirt, a fitted jacket, or a beaded bag. It’s also versatile enough to wear year round, so it’s worth investing if you find an accessory you love in this shade.

4. Lagoon

This dreamy turquoise is Pantone’s color of the year: the perfect hue for poolside adventures and tropical getaways. Whether you’re sporting a sarong in St. Lucia or a maxi dress in Mexico, Lagoon feels relaxed, yet refined. Don’t have any exotic escapes on the calendar for this year? Choose a pendant necklace or a cuff bracelet with a few stones in this shade to instantly evoke that breezy vacation vibe. No passport necessary.

5. Woodbine

This lush shade of green works on its own or with patterns. Want to shake things up style-wise? Mix Woodbine with Purple Orchid. Consider a fitted wool coat in this color or a jersey wrap dress (solid or print). You can guess what color the other women will be when they spot you in this daringly distinctive shade.

Whether you play it safe with a classic like Chocolate Truffle or pick a more shocking shade like Purple Orchid or Woodbine, these colors are sure make to a memorable style statement this fall.
