Today a friend wanted to visit the Seattle Aquarium. For some reason it was not on my radar as a must do but I went. And all I could think about was the undersea world must have been Bob Mackie’s inspiration as he dressed Cher. My photos aren’t the best but you get the idea. The outrageous color combinations and flamboyant fish made me lust for glamour and fun. 

Fashion designers get their inspirations from the world around us. What inspires you?

 

Trendy Fall 2019 and 2020 colors

Trendy Fall 2019 and 2020 colors

Once you start looking for color you will see it in all it’s glory everywhere. This week I challenged myself to take a look at the Pantone Fall Colors of the year for 2019/2020 and see what I found on my walk this morning. See how well nature has used these colors to paint this serene picture. 

And see how you can also train your eye by trying to find clothing in certain colors and putting it together in an outfit you might (or might not) wear.

You can see the Pantone 2019/2020 Trend Report here.

Nature’s Neutrals

Nature’s Neutrals

Nature creates neutrals in the green grass, shrubs and trees that really allow fall colors to shine. At times it may seem like there is a riot of color, in reality there is just a touch here and there but against the changing clouds and constant green the reds and yellows of well placed fall color creates that attention getting emphasis.

You can do the same with your colors. Use them in small quantities against constant neutrals and it will really show up. 

This orange purse against the neutral blue background is an example of color in small doses really becoming the star attraction. What is your neutral? What color do you enjoy for that pop? I hope you will look at the beautiful fall colors (brief as they are) for style inspiration.
