Drumroll……..I know you’ve been waiting for it……..the 2013 Pantone Color report for Fall! Because we’re already working on our fall wardrobe, right? No, me either. Anyways, here is the report for your future reference, as well as some shopping ideas (this year, the palette is for both men and women).
As we are ALREADY nearing August and the end of summer, fall is just around the corner (seriously, this summer has FLOWN by!). Pantone has chosen some lovely colors for this fall’s fashion trends, which again include the color of the year, “Tangerine Tango.”
Fall 2012 – Top 10 colors for women’s and men’s fashion
My favorites are Honey Gold, Ultramarine Green, Bright Chartreuse, and Rhubarb from the men’s section. Looking forward to adding them to my fall layering and accessories and maybe even fall and Christmas decor. This year needs to slow down a little bit…
Here comes one of my favorite times of the year. When the weather tempts us with slightly cooler temperatures, Starbucks releases their oh-so-popular pumpkin spice latte, and I gaze lovingly at the warm, rich colors released by Pantone in their fall color forecast. This year’s color guide for women’s fashion features the color of the year, “Honeysuckle” (continued from spring to add some continuity), along with rich jewel tones and earthy neutrals. I’m seriously thinking of printing them out and hanging it in my closet for outfit inspiration. Is that weird or just a really great idea?
Here are the top 10 pantone colors chosen by NY designers as inspiration for their fall lines:

My current favorites are deep teal, emberglow, bamboo, and phlox. Looking forward to incorporating all ten colors into my clothing, home, and design work.
Baggu is a company that makes durable, lightweight bags in a large variety of colors and patterns. I can envision packing for trips (one of my favorite hobbies) being even more fun with a coordinated collection. They make bags perfect for lugging groceries or beach items, daypacks that fold into a pocket, and several kinds of totes. If you like color, this brand is for you.
A few of my favorites:
M MOCIUN limited ed. collection, perfect for small items - $14
Duck Bag in Olive, everyday canvas tote - $22
Baggu in Elephant, reusable bag - $8 each, less in multiples
