In case you weren’t aware the PANTONE Fashion Color Report for Fall 2010 reveals the beautiful palette of Fall colors for this year. You may be surprised to find a bright variation of hues which may not be the traditional autumn blend.
This year’s star is Lagoon – a tropical turquoise splash. Designers see this as a popular hue and suggest pairing it with any shade of red.
Lipstick Red, a deeper, more dramatic sensual red, makes its imprint on fall, particularly in cosmetics.
My personal favorite is Exotic Purple Orchid. It is described as a purple leaning to fuchsia, is an unexpected choice for fall, imbuing a bit of magic and vibrancy to the season.
It is perfectly paired with Elegant Chocolate Truffle, a rich brown with piquant plum undertones.
Woodbine takes last season's neutral greens to a whole new level, and when mixed with Purple Orchid and Chocolate Truffle, results in a stunning combination.
Golden Glow, an earthy, deepened shade of yellow, creates a retro look with Purple Orchid or Woodbine.
A softer, more inviting orange with a hint of pink undertone, Living Coral is the perfect complement to Lagoon.
Crisp Endive, a revitalizing yellow-green, adds freshness to this season's top ten, and will enliven any wardrobe.
Oyster Gray, a classic neutral that grounds the palette, is a lighter take on the traditional fall gray.
Rose Dust, a flattering beige, offers an ethereal, romantic, wispy option to span the seasons.
