Life got in the way so this is later than I normally would do this color post.  We are a month into Autumn 2012 after all!  However, maybe you've bought something new in a boutique and are looking for the perfect accessory or just want to update your current wardrobe.
These 2012 Pantone colors look promising for this Autumn's retail shops' update.  I'm loving the French Roast with the Chartreuse especially.  I'm not sure if this happens much, but Tangerine Tango debuted in Pantone Spring and  was loved enough to bring it into Fall!  It's a really juicy Orange and I'm thinking I like it better in the fall and it would also look great with French Roast.

I hesitate to highlight them since purple is one of my go to colors, but Titanium and Rhapsody look elegant and gorgeous to me.  Only some could pull off Rose Smoke, as the Rose Smoke is barely there.  Reminds me of one of Christopher's dresses on Project Runway last season.  It highlighted the model's beautiful skin, but in my opinion it was on the verge of washing her out, too.

Now is the shameless plug for a sampling of jewelry in my shop that features these colors for Fall!  Since I don't design purposely for Pantone colors this is all luck or could it be instinct?   : )
