Shades of Fall: Russet Orange, Crocus Petal and Meerkat

Oh yes I have all those Fall feels.

The weather has finally and officially turned to Autumn, the leaves are changing colors, I’m neck deep in pumpkin everything, Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas are ready to go in the DVR and I have rotated my wardrobe to encompass all the fall shades.

Fall colors are so rich, warm and comforting.  There is something utterly magical about these deeply earthy, dusty shades.  You can’t help but feel uber chic when wearing them.

A few weeks ago I shared how Ceylon Yellow has been dubbed one of Fall 2018’s top colors by Pantone- the color experts- and this week I’m introducing you to three more of Pantone’s must-have shades for the season: Russet Orange, Crocus Petal and Meerkat.  At first glance you might be inclined to think these three shades won’t work together but when combined they actually create a stunning and perfectly suited Fall palette.

PANTONE 16-1255 Russet Orange

A beautiful orange, slightly more red than yellow, Russet Orange seems primed to take over as the new bold organic du jour — Pantone links it to nature and foliage, noting, “This forest floor orange speaks to earthen warmth.”

PANTONE 15-3520 CROCUS PETAL

A delicate, energetic floral shade, Crocus Petal feels like the sweet, barely subdued understudy to Ultraviolet. Pantone calls it, “A cultivated and refined hue [that] adds a light and airy spring-like feeling.”

PANTONE 16-1438 Meerkat

Meerkat, a classic shade that exudes warmth and is highly adaptable.  Pantone describes it as “A toasty burnished brown”
