hello, fall fashion! today, we’re talking about the Pantone color trend autumn/winter 2021/2022. as you can imagine, this time of year there’s lots of inspiration from mother nature. October is a transitional month that ushers in cooler temps and a muted color scheme. vibrant summer days filled with sunshine until well into the evening hours are fast disappearing. in its stead are longer nights, shorter days, and moody skies that are a brilliant shade of blue one moment then replaced with swirling gray clouds. the seasons are a changing and our color schemes with it. browns, creams, grays, and pops of orange surround us at every turn. i think i like it.
happy Monday, ladies! October is steamrolling right along at a quick pace. Halloween is a mere 20 days away and counting. 45 days until Thanksgiving and Christmas is (gulp) 75 days. good golly, miss molly, where has this year gone?! before i get ahead of myself, i want to enjoy every minute of fall in all its splendor, including the gorgeous Pantone color trend autumn/winter 2021/2022. today, i’m wearing Adobe with flecks of Root Beer and Cream.
it’s always a good idea to stay abreast of trends even if we don’t incorporate all of them into our lives. no one wants to become dated or stodgy in their thinking or their wardrobes. staying modern, fresh, and relevant is essential at any age, but especially as we age, whether we’re mastering a new app or tweaking our makeup hues. if you’ve noticed blues, yellows, greens, and Fuschia abound in decorating and design this year, there’s a reason. these colors are from the Pantone color trend autumn/winter 2021/2022 introduced for NYFW.
today’s ootd starts with plaid pants (limited sizes similar here and here) from Banana Republic. BR has a sale until October 11th, 30% off select items with an additional 20% if you have a Banana Republic card. it’s a great time to stock up on basics like this turtleneck sweater available in five colors. earlier this fall, i purchased a black turtleneck last seen here. it fits like a dream, so i added cream and gray to my collection. sometimes turtlenecks can feel tight, restricting, hot or suffocating. not this one, as the fabric is lightweight, soft, and comfy. exactly like a sweater should feel. a suede jacket from Ralph Lauren (old, similar here, here, and here) adds texture and mimics the Pantone color Adobe that’s trending this season. suede mules from Jenni Kayne are back in action (i’m wearing them non-stop this fall), and a hand-tooled handbag (old, similar here, here, and here) from Patricia Nash adds a subtle western vibe.
