Fall Colors

Wait for it! Haven’t we all been waiting for it? Fall, is what I mean and with that comes with fall colors and beautiful leaves, pumpkins and yummy things baked in the oven. So many things to love and savor during this season but today for Create28 we’re talking about fall colors. I typically love the rich tones found in fall colors. For me they just exudes warmth and coziness.

Have you seen the colors Pantone chose for fall and winter? Surely you have but if not here they are.

Now with those colors as inspiration it should be much easier to create at least one new fall look. If you’re like me you probably have pieces in these colors or similar colors already in your closet.

Let’s Start Here:

  • What fall colors do I already have in my closet?
  • Are those pieces seasonally appropriate?
  • Can I mix or layer anything?
  • What type of look{s} do I want to create? {office, casual, church, date night, etc.}

Go time!

Here’s what I found just hanging around in my closet waiting for me to wear.

mustard+tealMy inspiration was Biscay Bay {top} and Oak Bluff {skirt}. The top/tee is new but the skirt has been in my closet for several years. The color of the skirt actually runs along the mustard/gold range but fits into trendy colors this fall. I have seen quite a bit of goldish colors everywhere in stores lately. I added a scarf for a little visual interest but statement jewelry would also work for this look.

mustard+teal+scarfJackets and sweaters or what is commonly called completer pieces work perfectly in transitional weather times of seasons. I added a denim jacket because who knows if a morning might be cool or any other venue at this time of year.


I replaced the top/tee with a 3/4 length cardigan for another fall color look. My inspiration here for color is the popular Marsalas even though this color is a little more in the purple hue. This jewel tone works with the skirt and again the scarf pulls the colors together.

skirt+cardiganFor this look I simply buttoned up the cardigan and added the scarf rather than a cami or top under the cardigan. Honestly, I like this type of look and I wasn’t sure if I would when I first pulled it together.


These looks could be worn to work but the skirt could be changed out for other bottoms to create a more casual element to the look. How about some more inspiration for fall looks and fall colors? Check out our Pinterest board.

    • I agree - fall colors bring a smile to my face! Glad you were inspired by these looks. Yay!
  • Oh gorgeous! I love these looks and you have me wanting to try these color combos too! I may have to do the reverse of your first look--I have a yellow cardigan and a teal skirt. Thanks for the inspiration!!
    • That would be so pretty, Shea! Looking forward to seeing your look.
  • Love that skirt and the different choices, love how you had the same pieces but just changed one thing and it completely changes the look.
    • I don't think I would have put these together before I looked at the fall colors and decided I'd try to mix some of them. I'm was happily surprised!
  • Love the color of that skirt!
  • Ohh! So perfect! I'm jealous that you have that skirt just hanging in your closet! I don't know why I didn't use the Pantone colors as a guide today. My brain is mush these days! But I think my cardigan qualifies as Biscay Bay :)
    • Your cardi is definitely Biscay Bay! I think that skirt continues to be one of my all-time faves.
  • Casey

  • Laura
    That skirt is fantastic! I wouldn't have thought to pair it with the teal, but it looks fabulous! Love the purple with it too!
    • Thanks, Laura! I was just taking a few risks and trying something out of the normal. I so surprised that it worked.
  • I love seeing the color wheel from Pantone! I didn't know that they did trend forecasting aside from setting the colors of the season and year. Thanks for linking up with us on Start the Week Stylish! - Ana Luiza The Northwest Blonde
    • Thanks, Ana! Yes, Pantone highlights the seasonal colors on their website. I think it can be helpful especially when I looking in my own closet and seeking to stay on trend just a little bit.
  • Those are some strange colors Pantone came out with but then, BAM! You make it work with the outfits you pulled together! (Who is Pantone anyway? Why do they get to say what the season's colors are?)
    • I don't really know their history but they somehow pick the colors and people follow. lol
  • I love how you mixed up some of the wheel's colors to create color blocked looks! xo Michelle Paige
    • Thanks, Michelle. It was fun to look in my own closet and find some of the colors.
  • Great pairing of the darker blue with the yellow, and the purple with the mustard color. I love this years fall colors!! Thanks for linking up with TH Tuesday! jess xx
    • Thanks, Jess! I agree I love the colors this year but typically I do because they are rich and have some jewel tones. I love jewel tones!
  • I love these color combinations! That mustard skirt is outstanding! Red Reticule
    • I never knew how versatile it would be until I just starting pulling things out of my closet and going at remixing. Glad you stopped by!
