New York Pantone Fashion Color Report, Fall 2017


Fall is here and if you're looking at your closet like I am, and thinking about how to upgrade to fall colors, then check out Pantone's Fashion Color Report for Fall 2017.  You don't need a huge budget, or designer frocks, to keep your wardrobe fresh and updated each season.

I'm by no means a fashionista.  It's difficult enough to balance a work and home life, but taking the time to dress carefully and with intention is a positive form of taking care of yourself.  Which is why every season, I try to focus on dressing and buying pieces with intention.  It's a very different concept than going to the mall (or more like online) and buying whatever is on sale or impulse buying whatever is in season.

I don't have a crazy budget to spend on clothes each season, but I do set aside a reasonable budget for me to get some seasonal pieces that I can wear at work and off-duty.  With a neutral closet, I'm able to carefully select which colors each season I want to invest in to rotate my looks.

I love browsing Vogue's Runway section and getting ideas about what designers are doing each season.  I look at runway looks through the lens of inspiration and not literally about buying the exact pieces.  If you have the budget for it - more power to you!  As for the rest of us, focus on the colors, the fabrics, the cuts, and the shapes of clothing.

Color Palette for New York

This fall, I am so in love with Tawny Port, Butterum, Navy Peony and Natual Gray.  These really are classic colors that should be in every woman's closet in my opinion.  They go with every thing, and I try to invest in good quality pieces within this color range.  The fact that it's a fall seasonal color is icing on my cake because I know I can keep those pieces for a long time.

Runway Inspiration

Here are some runway looks I'm using this season to upgrade my fall closet.  If you can't tell, I am in love with Victoria Beckham's aesthetic.  I simply love the structured pieces for work.  Pairing a Butterum colored pants with a Navy Peony top and a long wool or pea coat in the same Navy color with black heels will make any woman look classic.
