Today I put our Pantone Fall 2013 bead palettes to the test with some back to school inspired fashion picks. Sticking closely to the themes that each bead trio created, with clothes and jewelry that are perfect for fall, I combined each of the color triads with fun messages. All three fashion sets include a fabulous and versatile multistrand necklace.
The Debutante palette featured Samba, Linden, and Green Lichen in a vintage inspired look. In keeping with the formal dance theme, I chose some great dresses and pearly accessories. It was tough to find raspberry red hues like Samba, but intense reds and creams always go together. The deep greens and slate grays add lots of class.
Next up was the slightly more whimsical Ratatouille. With a lunch inspired theme, I combined fresh and vibrant purples and orange, as close to Acai and Koi as could be. Turbulence gray and some softer stone grays soothe the palette and provide a great backdrop for wild accessories.
Getaway is still by far my favorite combination of the three, featuring Emerald, Mykonos, and Carafe. This set focuses on late summer and early fall fashions that are great for last minute trips to the cabin, with hints of aquatic blues.
Are you planning your fall and winter designs yet? What are you making?
