Pantone Fall 2014 Fashion Colors Sangria and Aurora Red

There are two shades of red included in the Pantone fall colors this year.  Aurora Red is an orange-tone where Sangria is a blue-tone that I would consider to be more a shade of burgandy than a red.  I've been playing around with both of these reds to see what other colors they combine well with.
