Pantone Fall 2019 Fashion Colors -- Rocky Road, Sugar Almond and Vanilla Custard

Many of the Pantone Fall Colors for this fall seem to be named after food.  Not only do the names sound yummy, I find the colors are too.  I am not a real fan of browns but they seem to keep creeping into my wardrobe.  The nice thing about them, however, is they are a great neutral than can be worn with so many other colors.
An all time favorite, for instance is teal or turquoise combined with brown.  This color combination seems to be one of my best sellers in my jewelry collection as it can be neutral yet so stunning.
