One place that I always love to look towards for inspiration is Pantone! Whilst working among amazing creatives in beauty and fashion I was lucky to have the inside scoop. I got to play with color chips and really delve deep into colors, stories they tell,moods they set. Color forecasting for the season and getting wind of the upcoming color of the year is very exciting.As most industries fashion and beauty both work very far in advance and witnessing these trends come to fluition can be very powerful.Its honestly amazing to see how trends including color trickle down into various markets. It reminds me of that moment from The Devil Wears Prada when Miranda Priestly played by the beautiful Meryl Streep tells a spanking new and frazzled Andrea who is played by Anne Hathaway that “Her sweater is not just blue”.While she thinks she is not effected by color she indeed is also touched by the world of fashion. Andrea who is new to the fashion world laughs not noticing the difference between this stuff simply dimissing the decision to choose between various shades of “blue” when Miranda,Meryls character informs her it is indeed Cerulean, which directly lead to the creation of her “lumpy Cerulean tone sweater” which she purchased at a discount store. It is one of the best cinematic responses defending the world and magnatude of fashion.
Despite loving the movie I personally think these “discount” stores are great and smart shoppers can find great fashion forward pieces anywhere. However I do agree that the colors consumers are drawn too each season are no coincidence. The choices of shoppers are direct results of the magic of fashion and really great marketing.
Over all color can be a make or break in anything we purchase ! Nowadays the colors I tend to play with at work come in 12 or 24 packs of Crayolas,however I still love to explore for myself.
This time of year reds,burgundy, browns and yellows tend to make their entrance and I’ve noticed I have been more drawn to yellow more than ever before. While it can be a daunting color to wear I have found myself taking the plunge. Finding the perfect pieces in this Golden shade can really transform your fall wardrobe. I recommend perhaps a blouse, blazer or even start small with a scarf.Blending this color with darker fall tones instantly makes your outfit appear layered which is typically the goal this time of year, right!? Wearing: Top similar exact color way sold out, Jeans,Shoes,Sunglasses,Purse
I started small with this sheer yellow plaid (another major movement for this year)my new favorite grlfrnd Jeans and classic pumps.I could see myself wearing this top multiple times with various items in my closet.I really loved this look it was a mix of 90’s clueless era with a modern twist.
While most people can go weeks without wearing a pair of jeans I am not one of them! I am a denim girl through and through I wear jeans to dress up down so errands I just feel they are so versatile.Theses particular jeans have a split bottom hem which is also a trend I’m really enjoying at the moment.
I know this was a lengthener post, but I hope you all enjoyed it. Let me know your thoughts and if you are going to give this falls yellow a try!
