That bittersweet time of year is fast approaching. The time when the fun of long summer days and hot summer nights fade into shorter days, long chilly nights, and the exploding beauty of autumn. The time when nature magically turns greens into vivid hues and shades of yellow, red, orange, purple, and brown.  It’s also that time of year to switch from open work camisoles and dresses to snuggly scarves and skirts, warm hats and fingerless gloves.

One of the exciting things about the change of seasons is the change of the color palette. While I’m no stickler for rules and for what’s “in”, the Pantone Fashion Color Report is a great resource for me.  The Color Report keeps you up-to-date on what colors are used in the season’s fashion trends.  I like to use it to decide what complementary and contrasting colors to use when designing and making my one-of-a-kind accessories and garments.

Out of this selection of colors, my Fall 2014 favorites are: Bright Cobalt, Aurora Red, Sangria, and Misted Yellow.  What are your favorites? (Take our poll)
