Fall Color Line Up

Earth tone neutrals used to be the common fare for Fall which consisted of basic blacks, browns, tans & cream.  That's not the deal at all for this season as we are seeing a barrage of rich colors that will most definitely excite and surprise you!  Your cooler weather wardrobe will get an instant boost if you add one of these hot hues to it... Aside from the coral and pink, these are my faves from the Pantone Fashion Color Chart for 2011...
RICH BERRY: Makes an outstanding statement especially when paired with basic neutrals.
OLIVE GREEN: My favorite of all greens that is a neutral hue and very versatile.  It's flattering to every skin tone.
DEEP TEAL:  An extremely strong blue-toned green that should pretty much be limited to one piece per outfit (meaning never wear teal on both the top and bottom).This colors best complimentary hue is charcoal gray.
COFFEE LIQUER: Rich & decadent, this particular brown brings a sense of elegance to Fall.  This color is safe to wear head to toe, however you can jazz it up by pairing it with gold accents.

I like adding teal or berry to my fall line up. They give the outfit an extra pop!
