The Colour Edit Autumn/Winter 2015-16 – Dried Herb / Desert Sage Green

Dried Herb Desert Sage Autumn Winter 2015 2016 Colour Edit Pantone

It’s September, so I think we can officially start talking Autumn/Winter, and with a new season here on this blog, comes a new Colour Edit series! Every 6 months, I explore the colours that the powers that be (Pantone!) predict as the big colour trends for the season, and show you my favourite ways to wear them in the shops right now.

Pantone describes the colour palette of Fall 2015 as a mix of earthy neutrals (always classics for Autumn) and a range of bold colour statements (hoorah!), and this week we’re starting with Green.

The key shades of green for Autumn/Winter 2015-16 are Dried Herb – an organic, olive shade that can be perceived as both military and chic, and Desert Sage, a cool and soothing green/grey. Both of these shades are great neutrals for Autumn – bringing forth thoughts of crisp, drying leaves just before they turn to shades of orange (which, don’t worry, we’ll be coming to!) The great thing about them is that they cover both warm and cool shades, and are great on those with soft colouring too. Those with deep colouring can look to Dried Herb, and those at the light end of the colour palette will look fabulous in the sage type colours, so there really is a green for everyone this season.

Here are some of my favourite items in store now in these fabulous colours. Make sure to follow my Pinterest board too which I’ll keep updated as the season goes on!

    That jacket is absolutely amazing, and this isn’t even a colour I would normally go for and I would still wear that jacket!

      It’s rather gorgeous, isn’t it – I think they have it in grey too! (Which is another colour I’ll be talking about this season!

  • I was never really big fan of green shades but as I get older they simply grow on me 🙂

      I think its just all about getting the right shade for you – there’s a green out there for everyone!
