November Favourites 2015

Brrrrr, yup, it’s December already! And that means it’s time for another monthly favourites video.

Beauty and fashion come up first, but if you want to carry on watching, I talk about what I’ve been watching and playing too!

Time for the next post in my Autumn / Winter 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. We’ve already looked at the most on trend ways to wear GreenOrange, Oak Buff and the colour of the year Marsala this season, and today it’s time for another neutral (don’t worry, I promise that we’ll be back onto accent colours next time!)

Pantone describes this colour as…

Reminiscent of the sky on a gray, overcast day, PANTONE 18-4214 Stormy Weather is dependable, cool and above all, constant. Implying quality and luxury, Stormy Weather is a powerful blue grey shade that is strong, protective and enduring.”

…Just as the sun comes out after stormy weather to bring us cheer and a glimmer of hope, PANTONE 16-1144 Oak Buff is a mellow, comforting and warming shade that brings good feelings. Another one of nature’s illustrious shades, the golden yellow Oak Buff acts to nurture and comfort.”

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!
