Pantone Autumn Winter 2016 Which Colour Would You Choose

I love having a browse to see what new colours will be on trend for the new season collections.

These are the trend colours forecast from Pantone for Autumn/Winter 2016 

Anything catching your eye ? Have you noticed these colours flooding into your stores? I am really drawn to the Grey (Sharkskin)  and I love the mustard (Spicy Mustard) and stone (Warm Taupe) Colour. Let me give you some examples of these colours that are available in the shops now.

1) Riverside is the first colour in the grid and I would commonly call this colour Petrol Blue ! But hey, this shirt from Top Shop is just too gorgeous to argue !

2) Airy Blue- Very similar to Serenity Blue that was quoted for Spring/Summer 16 This is the go to blouse that will go with anything, even jeans from Eastex

3) Sharkskin – A form of dark grey or silvery tones. This is one of the easiest colours to pair with items in your wardrobe. A big trend for all our up and coming festivities when worn in the metallic version. I would wear this with a roll neck jumper too for not such a dressy affair. This pleated skirt is from Warehouse

4) Aurora Red – This is not a bright red tone, this is a warm, bordering on Rust tone. These trousers look easy to wear, and could transition from day to night . From JD Williams

5) Warm Taupe – Another colour that’s  easy to add to your wardrobe. I would have to add some colourful accessories to this though. I also think this shirt dress from Oasis will look great open over trousers and T shirt.

Dusty Cedar – A more rose toned pink. I really had a job finding something of Dusty Cedar description. This is as near as I could get, plus who doesn’t love a glamorous fur gilet in winter ?

I spotted this on sale at Winsmoor at a bargain price so be quick.

Lush Meadow – A rich elegant jewel-toned green shown here in the ever popular easy to wear jumpsuit From JD Williams

Spicy Mustard – A spicy Yellow, bordering into Tan. I found this transitional dress at Marks and Spencer This will look great alongside your browns that you have in your wardrobe. Picture this with tan accessories and sandals now, or a long sleeved T Knitted tights and boots for winter.

Potters Clay- A Rusty Brown shade. The shops are flooded with Brown shades, and this is a perfect update on your Biker Jacket. A perfect blending tonal colour to wear with nearly all the Pantone colours that are predicted for this year. This Biker Jacket is from River Island

Bodacious – Rich Purple . I found this colour so hard to find! But I do like the idea of the on trend “cold shoulder” top that everyone has embraced this past summer still in stores for winter. I don’t know if I fancy cold shoulders in minus temperatures though ! Jumper Karen Millen

So that’s our colour trend report. If I had to pick my favourites, they would have to be Riverside Sharkskin Warm Taupe Dusty Cedar and Potters Clay. Which one’s are your favourites ? I’d like you to let me know in the comments.

    These colors look great! I think my fave is the airy blue. Thanks for sharing what's coming up in the world of fashion.

    Laurie, these are such gorgeous picks in the Fall colors. I am loving all of the hues for this season except the purple. I don't know why…but it just isn't appealing to me! But all of the other colors are so warm and comfortable for me.

    Thanks so much for linking up with me On the Edge. I hope to see you again this week. Have a beautiful day!

    My top three are Riverstone, Sharkskin and Bodacious. Love them. Thanks for showing off the other colors in an outfit or piece of an outfit. Some of the colors I had a hard time picturing. I don't look good in mustard or golds at all, which is a real bummer as that dress is adorable and you could wear it with so many fun things. I can't wait to see how you work the colors into your outfits this fall/winter. I love your style and fashion choices!

    This is a lovely selection – I have to say I wear far too much black, so need to embrace the colour a bit more! I love the rich purple and the red, such vibrant colours. Thanks for linking up to #dreamteam

    I'm really enjoying these colors. So easy to mix and match and thank goodness for that beautiful warm rusty Aurora Red, finally a red I think I can wear.

    I like the autumn colors. I usually don't add a lot to my closet each season (and only buy something in an "in" color if I truly love it), but I may have to add something in "Riverside" – such a pretty shade of blue!

      Riverside is one of my favorites too !

    • September 14, 2016 / 6:08 pm

      They all make a nice change from just Black don't they. x

    • September 14, 2016 / 6:09 pm

      Yes me too ! Why can'they just say Blue, Red, Mustard is going to be the trend? x

  16. September 13, 2016 / 7:57 pm

    Dusty cedar is on my list for definite! Although I do like the Bodacious purple. Both are stunning. x

    • September 14, 2016 / 6:11 pm

      The Bodacious purple is proving to be very popular Jacqui. It would look horrible on me ! I think it would look great with your dark hair x

  17. September 13, 2016 / 8:40 am

    I love the colour of the top one! I love that shirt! #dreamteam

    • September 14, 2016 / 6:13 pm

      Ditto ! that's one of my favorites. Thank you for stopping by x

    I love all of these colours especially the green and of course I love a pop of red in winter. I'm going into Spring now so will have to wait until next year to wear them. Thanks for sharing at Over the Moon.

    I really love the fall colors and boy, we are on the same wavelength! I posted in Fb these colors and have a post in the making. 🙂 Great minds…. I absolutely love the Lush Meadow and Potter's Clay, 2 colors I think would go with my skin tone. The Aurora Red is also gorgeous more of a blue-red as opposed to orange.I love grey tones as well. So many nice shades! I like the clothing choices too!
    have a great week!

      The lush Meadow will look stunning on you Jess, as would all the other colours. But lush meadow will be so good on you x

  20. September 12, 2016 / 10:19 am

    The last one! Bodacious in rich purple would look stunning with your hair! #classymonday
