Pantone Fall Fashion Color Report

Styledash brought my attention to Pantone's release of their annual Fall Fashion Color Report. Perhaps it's just my graphic designer past, but I love Pantone, and their color swatch reports have always been quite inspirational. Here are the color descriptions:

* Carafe, is a deep espresso brown.
* Burnt Ochre, a nice earthy autumn orange.
* Chili Pepper, puts a little fire in your wardrobe.
* Stargazer, takes the turquoise from the summer and intensifies it.
* Shale Green, is a green that pretty much anyone can wear. It takes what could be murky and gross and infuses a touch of blue/green in it.
* Dusk, is a dusty shade of gray that is kicked up with a touch of blue.
* Green Moss, looks just how it sounds.
* Lemon Curry, walk on the exotic side and take summer's favorite shade of yellow into new territories.
* Cashmere Rose, this color is so soft, romantic, and delicious you will want all of your fall dresses in this shade.
* Purple Wine, much softer and easier to wear than a harsh red wine color.

I'm loving the Purple Wine and Shale Green.
