The Pantone Fall 2017 Recap

What I want to do for this week's post is give you a recap of all the Pantone Fall 2017 colors. Instead of taking up too much of your time, reviewing what was already said about each outfit, I think you are all smart enough to go back and revisit the original post on each color combination if you want to see and read more. 

For those of you who have been following me for a while, you already know my philosophy behind using the Pantone colors on my blog. For those of you who are new here, I love color and whether it be in God's creation, a painting or an outfit, I love to see how various colors combine and contrast to create stunning visual displays. Pantone gives me a spring board from which to choose color combinations for my outfits. That being said, here are the outfits from this year's fall colors.

The London Palette

Here is a look at the outfits side by side. 

What is your personal favorite? I'd be interested to hear. Mine is the Royal Lilac and Golden Olive. I loved the richness of both of these colors, the comfort of the outfit and the Bohemian vibe that I felt it portrayed. I also felt that I looked the best in these colors, which is a revelation since I have never thought of myself as looking good in yellow. So much for those ideas that we had in the past!

The New York Palette

Grenadine and Butterum

Here are the outfits side by side. 

Which one of these color combinations did you like the most? Over all, I liked the New York Palette better than the London Palette. I felt the colors were deeper, richer and easier to find and work with than some of the London colors. If I had to pick one favorite I wouldn't be able to. I like the boldness of Grenadine and Butterum, the classic feel of Ballet Slipper with Neutral Gray, the perfect blend of Navy Peony and Marina, the tropical contrast of Tawny Port and Golden Olive and the fall perfection of Autumn Maple and Shaded Spruce. 

What is lovely about these colors is that you could pair any one with a totally different combination than I have and come up with an equally awesome outfit. How about Grenadine with Marina, Neutral Gray with Shaded Spruce or Autumn Maple with Navy Peony. That is the beauty of finding inspiration in the Pantone color palettes. There is so much you can do with them, long after these colors become obsolete. The Pantone Color Institute has already put out their Spring palettes! Yikes! For a sneak peek at those just click on the one you want to see: London Palette or New York Palette

I have decided to postpone my series on camouflage until the new year, so I will be starting a series on dressing for the holidays, next Tuesday. On Thursday I'll be starting a series on layering, which is one of my favorite things to do. I hope you'll join me.

Pantone Fall 2017 - The London Palette - Navy Peony and Primrose Pink

For this week's post I am looking at the Pantone London color palette combination of Navy Peony and Primrose Pink. The Pantone site describes Primrose Pink as a gentle shade and Navy Peony as a strong and dependable color that takes some of the burden off black for a fashion mainstay.

Navy has long been touted as a neutral, pairing well will just about any other color, even black. Navy worn on the bottom can make us look long and lean, while navy worn on the top can hide a world of flaws. One of my favorite clothing pieces is my Ralph Lauren navy blazer. You can read my post on that here

For today's outfit I shopped my closet and came up with this navy skirt that seems to show off the Navy Peony color perfectly. This embellished skirt I got a while back from dressbarn. It is an a-line shape and falls just at the knee.

For the top I am wearing a Liz Claiborne tee that I got at a thrift store. Primrose pink is a light pastel pink. It is a little unusual to see a color this light on the fall Pantone palette, but I think this soft pink can be a great color to help us transition from summer to fall.

I thought the outfit looked a little bland with just the navy and pink, so I added a scarf with a variety of colors including blue and pink, to pull the outfit together and add interest. I styled this wide oblong scarf as a shawl. 

Here is a photo of what the scarf looks like open.

Because the scarf had just a touch of green in it I decided to carry my green clutch. Green is another color that will show up later when I do the New York colors. Be sure to check back for that.

I chose navy for my shoes, and jewelry and I also wore navy hose. 

What do you think of these two colors? Do you have some of these larger scarves that you like to wear as a shawl?
