Fall and Winter Colors

Here are the colors that Fire Mountain Beads say will be "in" for the coming season. I've often wondered just who sits down and decides what colors we should wear. Is is some mystical "they" people are always referring to? Is is some pannel of judges in the fashion world? Who knows. Personally, I think we should be able to decide for ourselves. There are colors in the chart above I wouldn't be caught dead in. AND - Who names the colors? The exact same color will have half a dozen names or more. I think they should stick to the names Crayola gives to their crayons myself.

There, my rant is over. Now down to business. I would like some input into what colors you really like to wear during the Fall and Winter in the Northern Hemisphere. I tend towards the browns and golds, with a splash of red for some pazazz. At least that is what is running through my brain at the moment. I may be way out in left field, so I'm asking for your input. What colors make you feel pretty when it's freezing outside or when you Snowbirds are basing in the Florida sunshine while the rest of us freeze?

that's a nice color chart to have on hand if for nothing else... and i'm with you on the names! yikes. can't they be satisfied with crayon colors!

the only difference between my summer colors & my winter colors is..... i wear more white in the summer. i live in sweats in the winter - so usually plums & navies. but for me, you're asking the wrong person here. if i wasn't so fat..... i'd be in light pink. yeah! petunia pig for sure - LOL.

A dear friend once told me the only difference between my Winter clothes and my Summer clothes is the length of my pants. Sad thing is they were right!

hi Sandy
I'm in my element when it comes to autumn (fall) I love rusets, ochres and berry colours,basicallly jewell tones. in summer the tones tend to be more pastel related for me.
