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!

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 2107 - The London Palette - Toast and Copper Tan

Out of all of the London Palette colors, I felt these two were the hardest to find. They are also hard colors for many people to wear. Toast and Copper Tan are not truly tan, but also not truly orange or brown. As this is not a color I saw in the stores, I did some thrifting and found that even there these are not popular colors. In the end, I shopped my closet and this is what I came up with. You have seen all of these pieces before.

With this pairing, I am going for a more monochrome look.

This asymmetrical hem top I have styled before here. I love the detailing on this tee. The bottom is trimmed with lace and there are two side triangular insets that add texture and interest to the top.

While the pants I am wearing are not truly the Copper Tan color, I felt, due to the yellowy orange stripes in the pants that it makes them seem more of a coppery hue. I styled these Sonoma ankle pants before in my summer InVestments series.

In keeping with the neutral monochrome vibe, I decided to go with faux pearl jewelry that stood out due to its iridescent quality.

i felt the addition of the chocolate brown moto jacket kept the outfit from being too soft. The jacket adds an edgy vibe and epitomizes my style personality. Of course if I am going for that look, I had to add my favorite taupe SO brand ankle boots as well.

Due to the fact that I love color, I felt it necessary to add at least one piece that made the outfit pop. The bright blue bag reminds me of the blue skies so prevalent on many midwest fall days. This bag that was thrifted is Nine & Co. brand.

What do you think of these two colors? Do they seem like fall colors to you, or do you feel they are more reminiscent of a pale sunset on a summer evening? I hope you enjoy following along as I look at the Pantone color palettes for each season.
