Did you know that there is an organization that decides the color palette for each season? If you’ve ever heard of Pantone colors, that’s them. You’ll find that most of the clothing and accessories offered each season fall somewhere in the color range they have set. Pantone is doing what we call fashion forecasting, predicting and establishing the trends about 8 months ahead of the season. They work so far in advance to bring us the colors we will all be wearing for the season. While all of us were ready for summer back in March, the colors for this fall were already out. They are such an authority on color that fashion designers and retailers look to them for color direction when they go to design or buy a collection.

One of the colors for this fall that really grabbed my attention is called desert sage. This muted green shade is perfect for fall and the changing weather. Take a look at some clothing and accessories in this beautiful shade.
The importance of neutrals continues to evolve with Desert Sage, a cool and soothing greenish-gray that serves as the ideal neutral across the Fall 2015 palette. Timeless and unobtrusive, yet powerful enough to make a statement on its own, Desert Sage speaks to the feeling of naturally inspired colors that remind us of things that are real and not invented.
