Ok, so have a think back to last February. Can you remember what you did that month? There’s probably plenty you can remember, but we’re willing to bet that predicting the shades for you autumn-winter fashion palette wasn’t one of them? Fear not, that’s where the clever people at Pantone come in. While we were ushering in the spring season and dreaming of floral prints for sunny mornings, the colour experts were compiling the collection of shades most of us would be turning to, come September 2015.

Here at Nanny Village, we’ve chosen our five favourite shades from the ten featured in Pantone’s Fashion Colour Report Fall 2015. It’s a collection they claim weaves earthy neutrals with a range of bold color statements and patterns to reflect a landscape of hope, fun, fantasy and all things natural.’ To our untrained eyes? It’s a collection of some truly gorgeous autumn hues, just waiting to be worn!

Dried Herb

Call it what you want – Khaki, Army Green, Oregano – we all know the dark green colour that so often becomes a staple shade in our autumn wardrobes. Maybe it’s the fact it complements the rusting falling leaves, or that it picks up the last of the bronze hints of summer tans? Either way, Dried Herb is easily found in the fashion offerings this season.

No, it’s not the forecast, just another of those carefully curated shades. Irish shoppers have shown their love for grey season after season, and 2015 proves that appreciation isn’t going anywhere soon. Take it as an opportunity to invest in a long-term item, while showcasing the chic shade.

Come November, there may be some of us dreaming of escaping dull, dreary weather, for a more tropical destination. If you haven’t got the holiday time to jet off, the least we can offer is this exotic shade of blue for a lift. Wear it in rich materials, such a silk, to avoid it feeling too summery. Keep shapes simple, to let the colour do the work.

Cashmere Rose

There’s something about a subtle shade of pink that can bring just the right amount of grown up girliness to an outfit. This season, it is the muted tones of Cashmere Rose. This delicate colour is best kept that way – think simple, soft structures, teamed with prints or with a darker, sleek leather.

If that isn’t reason enough to use it as our go-to shade for accessories this year, nothing is!
