Trend I am Loving: Color Block!

One of my favourite trends right now (besides leopard!) is colour block everything.  Colour blocking is essentially when you pair two or more contrasting, yet complementary colours together.  This trend has been around for a while, but this year it seems to be in abundance everywhere and available in all sorts of clothing and accessories.

 

There are so many adorable sweaters, dresses, accessories and skirts.  I am trying not to go overboard! I actually recently returned a super cute colour block cardigan that I recently purchased because when I unpacked my winter clothes I realized that I had bought an almost dental one at the end of last season… Ooops 😉 LOL!  I have rounded up a ton of more affordable and adorable colour block pieces if it is a style you are loving as well.

The Cutest Leopard Cardigans!

As you may or may not have noticed, leopard is EVERYWHERE this Fall! It makes me giggle when I hear say someone say that they are so excited that animal print is back in style this year.  I guess I never got the memo that it wasn’t always “in”… LOL! I have always loved leopard and consider it to be one of my neutrals! I recently picked up a gorgeous leopard cardigan and am almost embarrassed of how often I have been wearing it!

Colour Predictions for Fall 2018 Part 3

Last week I started my segment on Pantone’s Fashion Colour Trend Report predictions for Fall 2018.  I have discussed four colours so far: Red Pear and Valiant Poppy and Nebulas Blue and Ceylon Yellow.  Today I will be sharing fashion finds for the next two predicted shades: Martini Olive and Russet Orange.  These are probably my least two favourite of the colours only because they are the least flattering on my own personal skin tone… so selfish I know! LOL.  They would of course be gorgeous on anyone with a darker complexion than my own.

Colour Predictions for Fall 2018

One of my very favourite posts from last year was the series I did on Pantone’s Fashion Colour Trend report for Fall.  If you missed it, you can read about it here.  Essentially, 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. The Pantone Fashion Colour Trend Report is in my mind one of the best sources of inspiration for the upcoming season’s  colour trends.  Below are the gorgeous colours they have chosen for Fall 2018.

I actually love this particular palette of colours. I previously posted about my obsession of all things lavender, or in this case, Crocus Petal.  Red Pear and Quetzal Green are definitely colours that are going to be dominant in my Fall lineup. I love their richness.  I personally have a hard time wearing shades like Ceylon Yellow, Martini Olive and Russet Orange because of my skin tone, but I think they are still super fun and look forward to seeing them on others this season.  Ultra Violet was actually Pantone’s Colour of the year which I previously blogged about here.  Nebulas Blue and Limelight are both super pretty and I appreciate how vibrant they are!  Overall I think the Pantone Institute has chosen a lovely selection of colours!

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 per post throughout the next few weeks, so make sure you check back!

 

PANTONE 19-1536 Red Pear

“Deliciously deep red, whose luscious depth entices.”
