Every season has a distinct color palette that everyone seems to evoke. This winter, muted jewel tones seem to be a big hit. With the color or the year being “Marsala” which is a muted red-brown, burgundy, kind of dull jewel tone. Along side Pantones fall colors for 2015 that include Cadmium Orange, Oak Buff, Cashmere Rose, Amethyst Orchid, Stormy Weather, Reflecting Pond, Biscay Bay, Dried Herb & Desert Sage. Most, if not all these tones are very earthy, muted, yet still vibrant for the season.

This time of the year calls for the many shades of wine, raw jewels and dusty shades of the out doors. So when you are trying to pick out your outfit for that Christmas shindig, why not take in this seasons colors into consideration. Pair a cozy burgundy sweater dress with a pair of taupe booties and a nice statement necklace for that family get together. Or even a crushed velvet dress with a large scarf and knee high boots. You can even try a wrap dress with a simple necklace and some heels for that office Christmas party. There is always the ugly sweater option as well.
