Fashioning a Room: Styling Pantone’s Fall Colors

Happy Friday! Thought it would be fun to do a little fashion today so we invited our friend, Jennie, who is a personal stylist to create a couple of fall looks inspired by the rooms in Wednesday’s post about Pantone’s fall colors. Jennie’s the one who always just looks so perfectly pulled together, but never too done. Here’s just a casual everyday look for her…way better than even my best lululemon!

Take it away, Jen…

Hi everyone. I thought it would be good to show you how you can buy some great accessories this season and then use them for two completely different outfits–one a little dressier and one super casual (I’m happy to lead the Banish the Yoga Pant group!) I love the Pantone fall colors and was immediately attracted to the gorgeous purple shade Acai in this room…

And here’s where I took it…

Pantone Acai outfit

1. Milly Layne Bucket – Gunmetal //2. Hive & Honey Multi Chain Statement Necklace – Gold //3. Mesh Yoke Elastic Waist Dress //4. Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer – London white //5. La Mer Collections Gold Pyramid Stud Wrap – Chocolate //6. Vince Camuto Arianah – Smoke Taupe //7. Pim + Larkin Yellow Link Bracelet – Yellow/gold

Even though this look is centered around a (fab!) dress, I still feel like it’s very easy to wear. That rich acai shade is PERFECT for fall, and plays so well with the neutral palette of the accessories. I added in the yellow link bracelet for a bit of contrast, which adds a little vibrancy to the whole outfit. The brass on the watch reminds me of a great nailhead on a rich leather sofa!

So, taking it casual…Remember this room? Beautiful Mykonos blue dining room…

it inspired switching out the dress for a more mellow look with an amazing pair of blue skinny jeans and a chunky oatmeal sweater…perfect for a casual office or school drop off. The look for “Mellow Mykonos” really took shape when I found those jeans. That vibrant pop of color from the pants paired so well with the neutral cable knit sweater. I especially loved that the accessories from “Almighty Acai” easily transitioned into this everyday look. You could also switch out the booty for a pointy flat for a little more practicality.

The key is that you can invest in a few fun accessories this season and make them work for very different looks. Happy fall styling. XO Jennie
