Pantone Fall Fashion Color 2011

drum roll please....  deep teal!



According to Pantone and New York Times, inspiration behind this fall season is upstate New York.  Pair colors of nature with small animal prints.  Coordinate deep teal with warm, neutral shades of Camel, Bark, Birch and Taupe against cool shades of Dusty Gray and Slate, offset with jewel tones of Forest Green, Butternut, Maroon, Amethyst, Metallic Bronze, Silver and Antique Gold.

“There’s no one perfect teal; it comes in a range of lush tones, from the peacock blue shown here to the deep, aquamarine-like shades on the following slides.
While black is always a reliable mate for teal, dynamic color pairings—such as gray, saffron, and violet—really make a splash.”  Real Simple Magazine
"Deep Teal, which is a strong, blue-toned green, suggests ocean depths and the color of the sky as daylight descends into darkness. The darker teal shades add lively sophistication. Even though turquoise is in the same family as teal, the teal of the season is a bolder blue and green combination."  Kelly
