It's That Time of Year Again: A Pantone Announcement

Guess what time it is?! Pantone-Inspired Color Challenge time! It's hard to believe this bi-annual event is back so soon and it's even harder to believe that this is the FOURTH Pantone challenge Heidi and I have hosted already! You can check out the challenges from Spring 2013, Fall 2013, and Spring 2014 to get a better idea of what the hubbub is all about.

The Fall 2014 challenge will take place November 17-21, so get those outfits ready.

What is the Pantone-Inspired Color Challenge?

Heidi and I have selected five colors from Pantone's list of fall 2014 colors. We assign each day of the week one of these colors and we challenge you (and ourselves) to mix up your wardrobe to include that color in at least one of your pieces that day! We take pictures and share them with each other in one big link party. It's an awesome way to be creative with your wardrobe, break out of the same old clothing rut, and enjoy a community with our blogging friends. Don't worry if you don't own the exact shade of color we chose! The idea is just to be more creative with our looks, not to buy an entirely new wardrobe (though you are more than welcome if you need an excuse).

What's the lineup of colors?

Monday: Sangria Tuesday: Cypress Wednesday: Royal Blue Thursday: Mauve Mist Friday: Cognac

We tried to mix it up with a nice palette of both saturated and muted tones in fresh, spring colors. You can check out the other Pantone colors of the season here.

How can I link up?

We hope that you'll join us next week by:

  • Writing up a blog post and linking up on either Heidi's blog or my blog. Be sure to link back to our blogs in your post with a link or with the button below OR
  • By participating via Instagram with the hashtag #pantonechallenge and the color of the day (i.e. #cypress) and tagging me in it @themodernausten (feel free to tag @pantone in it, too!)

You may be showcased in mine or Heidi's favorite looks of the week! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments below!
