Don’t you just love Pantones colors for Fall/Winter of this year?
There are some great bright colors you would not expect going into Fall and Winter.
However, there are plenty of great neutrals as well for those of you that like a more classic and neutral wardrobe.
I am a big believer in layering in the Fall and Winter. There are many pieces of my wardrobe that I use year round so I am loving that I can incorporate some of these brighter shades like Rose Violet, Amazon and Waterspout.
So what do these color predictions really mean? Well one of the biggest benefits is if you regularly wear any of these shades and want to add more pieces to your wardrobe they will be much easier to find in the stores. That means you can shop within your budget because multiple price points are available. You can also shop thrift and consignment stores and buy things secondhand. These are great ways to add to your wardrobe on a budget and have fun discovering new brands.
One of my favorite ways to help my clients is to teach them to shop their closets first. We create new outfits using interesting color combos and accessories they haven’t tried yet. Once we identify what colors and styles you are drawn to it is so much easier to make a small shopping list of any pieces you may be missing. Don’t forget adding even just one great accessory like a scarf or piece of jewelry can totally elevate an outfit!
