10 Items Inspired by Pantone's 2014 Fall Colours

It's that time of the year again! Once again, we've compiled a list of 10 items for fall based on Pantone's Colours. (You can see last autumn's picks here, and this past spring's here, if you're interested). 

What are your favourites of these 10 shades? I think I'm kind of feeling the purples, interestingly enough! It's not a colour I wear too much despite my love for it, so I'd love to find some way of incorporating it into my wardrobe this season...

Pantone Colours Fall 2014

1. Radiant Orchid
This warm purple is not just Pantone's Colour of the Year; it's also made it on to both the Spring and Fall colour charts. For the cooler months, consider incorporating it into your wardrobe via a leather handbag. It's actually a surprisingly versatile colour, and would look fantastic paired with a coat in navy, camel, grey, or even a deep forest green.

2. Royal Blue
This classic colour just lends itself to outerwear, whether you opt for a classic peacoat or a modern wrap.
Miu Miu royal blue wool coat

3. Aluminum
Unexpected use of leopard print is big this season, so why not consider wearing a swingy dress in a putty shade of print?
Mango dress

4. Aurora Red
This rich red would look fantastic in a midi skirt (a style that's still going strong for the fall).

5. Misted Yellow
For those of you who secretly think midis are frumpy and unflattering, rejoice! The '60s, A-line mini is making a comeback, and would look fab in this autumnal shade of yellow.

6. Sangria
This warm wine colour is perfect for accessories; consider incorporating it into an outfit with a pair of suede pumps.
Tory Burch pointy pumps

7. Mauve Mist
Instead of your classic grey oversized cardigan, why not consider one in this lavender shade?

8. Cognac
Chances are, you probably have a black leather jacket, but have you thought about updating to a moto style in a rich brown? 

9. Bright Cobalt
A shade or two lighter and brighter than Royal Blue, this hue would look fresh and unexpected on your fingertips this fall.  

10. Cypress
Exchange your dark-wash denim for a pair in this always autumn-appropriate deep olive green.
