A Pantone Colored World:

As one of the most anticipated retail sales of the year takes place over the next couple weeks (through August 7th), I thought it might be fun to share some of what Nordstrom is offering during their Anniversary Sale that will follow along with the 2016 Fall Pantone Colors.

The Pantone Color Institute issued the following statement about their Fashion Color Report for the 2016 Fall Pantone Colors:

The desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism have inspired a Fall 2016 color palette that is led by the Blue family.

Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections. Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades.

Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.
