I don’t know yet if I really like the fall fashion color report. The colors continue to reflect the state of the economy and the challenges we are now facing. While I think some of the colors (Purple Orchid, Lagoon and Chocolate Truffle) will be fun to work with, I’m not so enthusiastic about the yellow-greens, beiges and neutral colors..and my least favorite colors to wear are coral and red. I have to face it, even I have gotten stuck in a rut. I want to try out colors like Rose Dust and Endive, I feel like I owe it to myself to broaden my horizons, I just hate feeling dull. On the other hand the colors are romantic and maybe this fall i’ll be more delicate and romantic.
Colors of fall 2010:
