Happy Friday everyone!  This is the fifth and last day of my week long posts on the Pantone Fashion Colour predictions for Fall 2017.  I hope that you enjoyed reading them as much as I enjoyed researching and writing them!  Monday I shared my finds for Grenadine and Tawny Port, Tuesday was Ballet Slipper and Butterum, Wednesday featured Navy Peony and Neutral Gray and Thursday  I looked at Shaded Spruce and Lime.  Today I will explore the last two shades: Marina and Autumn Maple.

Cool with an enhanced vitality, Marina is the only truly cool color in the fall palette that brings with it freshness and brightness.  (Description courtesy of the Pantone website.)

What do you think of the ten forecasted colours?  I personally think that they are beautiful!  I am excited to see that quite a bit of bright colour will be continuing into Fall 2017.  I always hate the end of summer, but building my wardrobe for the upcoming season eases the pain a bit… lol.

Thank you for reading!

This is a green you might see in the forest – sheltering and protective as evergreen trees. (Description courtesy of the Pantone website.)

On Monday I started my segment on the Pantone Colour predictions for Fall 2017.  I touched on four of the forecasted colours so far: Grenadine, Tawny Port, Ballet Slipper and Butterum.  Today I am talking about Navy Peony and Neutral Gray.  These two colours are guaranteed to be in my personal clothing lineup for this fall!

 

PANTONE 19-4029 Navy Peony

A mainstay for the season for both palettes, Navy Peony is a dependable and an anchoring shade. Solid and stable, the hue takes some of the load off of black as a go-to neutral. (Description courtesy of the Pantone website.)

Navy Peony

  1. Satin Midi Skirt  //  2. Fitted Jacket //  3. Cardigan  //  4. Linen Blend Scarf  // 5. Ankle Boot  //  6. Bell Cuff Sweater  //  7. Lace Dress

 

PANTONE 17-4402 Neutral Gray

The standard bearer of all neutrals, Neutral Gray shares the anchoring role with Navy Peony in this palette. It can be used as an accent or a head-to-toe statement shade. (Description courtesy of the Pantone website.)

Neutral Grey

  1. Scarf  //  2. Cold Shoulder Sweater  //  3. Skinny Jeans  //  4. Bell Sleeve Sweater Dress  //  5. Ankle Boot  //  6. Rib Knit Cardigan  //  7. Open Front Cardigan

 

See you tomorrow for Shaded Spruce and Golden Lime!

Colour Predictions for Fall 2017

One thing that stands out vividly in my memory from when I took my Fashion Forecasting program was Pantone’s colour predictions. The Pantone Institute will predict their top 10 colours for fashion in the upcoming season, based on what is seen at New York Fashion Week.  Below are the colours they have chosen for Fall 2017.

I personally feel the forecasted colour palette is absolutely gorgeous!  Ballet slipper is a continuation of the beautiful blush colour that I was crushing on all summer.  I love to dress colourfully so I am excited to see shades like Grenadine, Shaded Spruce and Marina in the lineup.  Brown tones do not look great on me due to my colouring so I tend to gravitate more towards the grays as far as neutrals.  That being said, Butterum and Autumn Maple are still very attractive colours for those who are fortunate enough to wear them.

I have collected some articles of clothing and accessories in all of these colours if you are wanting to introduce any of them into your existing wardrobe for this Fall!  I will be posting two of the colour trends each day this week so make sure you check back 🙂

 

PANTONE 17-1558 Grenadine

“A powerful, evocative, dynamic red, Grenadine is a confident and self-assured attention-getter.” (Description courtesy of the Pantone website.)

Grenadine

  1. Drop Earrings  // 2. Long Cardigan  // 3. Wrap dress  // 4. Blazer  // 5. Boatneck Sweater  // 6. Trousers  //   7. Kate Spade Tote  // 8. Loafer

 

PANTONE 19-1725 Tawny Port

“Taking the Red family to new depths, Tawny Port is elegant, sophisticated, and tasteful.” (Description courtesy of the Pantone website.)

Tawny Port

  1. Dress  // 2. Rib-knit Cardigan  // 3. Sweatshirt Dress  // 4.  Nylon Kate Spade Tote  // 5.  Cold Shoulder Sweater//  6.  Wool Blend Coat  // 7. Hooded Parka  // 8. Sateen Knee High Boot

 

I will be back tomorrow with my finds for the next two colours: Ballet Slipper and Butterum!
