Color Palette for Fall 2010

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.
