It may be scorching outside, at least in our little neck of the woods, but we’ve heard a lot of our designer friends talking about winter. Well fashion and color trends for the cooler months to be exact, so we’ve decided to put together this handy dandy guide for what’s in, what’s out and what’s an absolute must in terms of glass and crystal jewelry for the fall/winter 2010 season.
Unless you’re Kate Winslet in Titanic, you’ll likely be wearing your jewelry with clothing and that’s why it pays to pay attention to the colors you, your friends or clients are likely to be wearing this fall and winter. When you make a piece of jewelry that shines paired with the trendiest of outfits you know you’ve hit on something fabulous!
According to the Pantone Color Institute, the top 10 Fall 2010 colors for women are:
Exotic Purple Orchid, a purple leaning to fuchsia, is an unexpected choice for fall, imbuing a bit of magic and vibrancy to the season.
Elegant Chocolate Truffle, evocative of delicious treats, is a rich brown with piquant plum undertones, that pairs tastefully with Purple Orchid.
Woodbine takes last season’s neutral greens to a whole new level, and when mixed with Purple Orchid and Chocolate Truffle, results in a stunning combination.
Lagoon, this season’s turquoise is guaranteed to add a tropical splash. A great color for fall and winter escapes, Lagoon is a popular hue, especially in accessories, pairing dynamically with all shades of red.
Lipstick Red, a deeper, more dramatic sensual red, makes its imprint on fall, particularly in cosmetics.
Reminiscent of a radiant sunset on a brisk autumn evening, Golden Glow, an earthy, deepened shade of yellow,
creates a retro look with Purple Orchid or Woodbine.
A softer, more inviting orange with a hint of pink undertone, Living Coral is the perfect complement to Lagoon.
Crisp Endive, a revitalizing yellow-green, adds freshness to this season’s top ten, and will enliven any wardrobe. Add it to Lagoon, Chocolate Truffle and Purple Orchid for an invigorating fall look.
Oyster Gray, a classic neutral that grounds the palette, is a lighter take on the traditional fall gray, as designers heed consumers’ concern about the economy and deliver investment pieces that carry through to spring 2011.
Rose Dust, a flattering beige, offers an ethereal, romantic, wispy option to span the seasons.
