The 10 Pantone hues that will color your look for Fall/Winter 2011

Pantone, the global authority on color for design industries, has announced the Fashion Color Palette for Fall/Winter 2011. These are the top 10 colors that will prevail this upcoming season. From left to right: Bamboo, Emberglow, Honeysuckle, Phlox, Cedar, Deep Teal, Coffee Liqueur, Nougat, Orchid Hush and Quarry.

And these are our favorites, Irma Guzman Eco Jewelry is proud to have the closest matching Pantone colors for necklaces.

Cedar, a mossy, sandy green that "evokes the freshness of a cool mist in a dark forest" as Pantone puts it. Our Evergreen necklace from the Amazon Rainforest Collection is a good representation of this neutral color.

Honeysuckle (right), a vibrant reddish pink that mixes well with the other 9 colors in the palette.
Phlox (left), named after the flower, is described by Pantone as a "magical deep purple with a hint of mystery." We have mixed these two amazing colors to create Aurora Borealis, which is part of the Amazon Rainforest Collection. Romantic and elegant for a night on the town.
Nougat, a neutral, that could be defined as creamy and warm. Consider Phlox, Honeysuckle, or Emberglow for a feminine touch. Our Baru necklace from our Amazon Rainforest Collection fits perfectly this description. Feminine and stunning this design will garner attention.
We often think of yellow as more of a summer color, but Pantone's Bamboo will take your fall outfits to a new level this year. Our Olivia Necklace is a good representation of this stunning color. A multitude of tagua petals will add a pop of fashion to your wardrobe.
One of our favorites is Coffee Liqueur, an elegant, deep earthen neutral that can be used as a warmer substitute for black. For bold impact mix it with Honeysuckle or Emberglow. True artistry meets Hot Coffee and Tahiti necklaces in an exciting combination of earthly colors.
