Fall 2016 Color Report

 

White Bear Jewelry Fall 2016 Color Report

 

Fall 2016 color report                         Summer is almost over…bummer right?! School is back in session (for us parents YAY!!) work hours seem to last longer as the days start to grow shorter.  If it weren’t for the gorgeous colors of fall this would all be very depressing.  Each year color experts at the Pantone color Institute scour through all of the fashion and design industries to predict the “it” colors for future seasons.  And…since fall is almost upon us I wanted to share their exciting color predictions for the fall 2016 season.  So grab your coffee, sit back, relax and enjoy White Bear’s Fall 2016 Color Report!

 

    Aurora Red

Magma Red Coral and Copper bracelet, copper bracelet, copper jewelry, coral jewelry, red coral, red coral jewelry, red coral braceletAurora Red has to be my favorite color for the fall season.  I love seeing bright colors in otherwise drab situations.  Red is also the most beautiful color of fall.  When the leaves turn and all the trees are on fire with color ignites a fire in my creative soul.  Combining aurora red with cooper is stunningly warm.  This color will definitely transition into winter well helping the traditional black and gray blahness of winter with bursts of color. Our magma coral and copper earrings and bracelet embrace aurora red and will add warmth to any fall or winter outfit.

Riverside, Potter’s Clay and Sharkskin

Shell Storm Wrap Bracelet Riverside and potter’s clay make a very earthy combination.  They remind me of earth and sky and spark all kinds of creative thinking.  You can dress these colors up or add them to any casual outfit.  Tangerine Summer Wrap BraceletI have added small sea shells to these colors as well which brought in a bit of the sharkskin gray. Combining all three of these colors makes the riverside and potter’s clay really pop.  The seashells also add to the earthy vibe of our two bracelets.

 

Dusty Cedar and Warm Taupe

Dusty cedar feels a bit like traditional rose or mauve.  Warm taupe is a classic neutral tone.  These colors add elegance and grace to the fall season.  These two are more for the introverted at heart not standing out but still drawing attention through their subtle beauty. Dusty Cedar and Warm taupe are both very feminine.

Airy Blue and Lush Meadow

Aventurine and blue glass earringsaventurine scrollsThese two colors remind me of earth and sky, an endless field that stretches out to meet the glorious horizon.  They are the tale end of summer.  Fresh colors in an ever graying world.  Blue and green are both calming colors.  They trigger our minds to send peace to our bodies. Not to mention they look fabulous together!

 

 

 

Bodacious and Spicy Mustard

I have left the bold and the beautiful colors, Bodacious and Spicy Mustard, for last.  These two awesomely rich hues will make your fall wardrobe jump with excitement.  They take me back to the fashion of the 80’s with bright makeup and outlandish designs that rocked the world.  You know the times when even men wore eyeshadow and had big hair!  HA!

I love this season’s colors.  Whether you are fierce or soft and romantic, fall 2016 meets all of your needs.  Keep your eyes out for new designs arriving soon.

What to Wear with White Bear

Welcome to another edition of What to Wear with White Bear.  week twoI continued this week with the bohemian look.  I have a thing for the freedom loving style.  Of course skirts are not the only thing in boho style but the maxi skirt is surely one of my favorite summer time go to items.  Plus its always fun to spin in a field of flowers!  So this week I am bringing you a top, skirt, and boot that have been matched with two of my newest items.  So here we go!

The maxi skirt is by Yoga Trends.  It comes in 5 different color combinations.  I chose the plum colored skirt because purple happens to be one of my favorite colors!  It has a very pretty abstract pattern that features a bright teal color.  I found this skirt on Amazon.com.

Women’s Indian Sequin Crinkle Broomstick Skirt                                                                                                                           $20.00

 

The top is a racerback tank top with lace around the neckline.  It is by MBE and comes in 10 colors. I chose the black top but there are two teal colors that would also be great with the skirt.  It would also be killer with a pair of jeans or shorts.  I found this tank top on amazon.com as well.

MBE Women’s Soft Button Racerback Tank Top                                                                                                                          $8.94

The boots I chose are to die for!  Great high heel that goes with skirts and pants.  I chose the black pair however, there are 7  other colors available.  They have a simple buckle at the ankle bone. They lace up the back, which is a very sexy look.   (shhhh but I so want these boots LOL)

Top Moda Women’s Knee High Round Toe Laced Up Slouched High Heel Boots                                                                                                                                                                        $39.99

 

Thistle Magnesite Lariat Necklace, what to wear with white bear

The Thistle is the newest piece in the White Bear Boho Heaven line.  It is a lariat necklace which gives it versatility.  The pink and purple beads pop out against the black top and look great paired with the skirt.  Its handmade chain and tassel go great with the bohemian aesthetiFigi Wrap Bracelet, what to wear with white bearc.

 

The Fiji wrap bracelet is also one of the newest editions to the Boho Heaven line.  It has four wraps that will fit any size wrist.  It contains peace jade, dyed coral, dyed mother-of-pear, wooden, jasper and glass beads.  It has a spiral charm that dangles for the second wrap.  The colors in the bracelet pop out against the skirt and top.  The wrap bracelet is a huge trend right now.

 

As always click on the links to see more information on each of the items.  The links for the outfit will take you directly to the amazon listing and the links to the Jewelry will take you directly to the piece on this website.  I hope that we have inspired your creativity and your unique fashion sense again this week.  As always please leave me comments below.  I would love to hear from you!

I have accented the outfit with two pieces of White Bear’s Boho Heaven line.

Taliesin Turquoise Magnesite Earrings match the teal color in the skirt magnificently.  These earrings will pop as they dangle down from your delicate earlobes.

The Skye pendant just screams out beauty when paired with the black off the shoulder shirt.  The black leather cord ties the pendant into the entire outfit.

Necklaces: What do you mean princess length?

Skye

Necklaces are a type of jewelry that is worn around the neck.  They are usually made of a flexible material such as chains or beads on silk or leather cord.  Necklaces have been found in archeological digs that have dated back to 4200 B.C.E.  They represent wealth, prestige, political or social position.  Some have special cultural of spiritual meanings.   A necklace can vary in length and reflect a person’s sense of style.  White Bear strives to make jewelry that captures what makes each person special.  You will find a variety of necklaces, in all lengths, colors, gemstones, and types.

Necklaces: What is each length called?

The length of the necklace can help you to decide what to wear it with.  It can also be important to the comfort of the wearer.  The majority of those made by White Bear Jewelry fall between 16 and 20 inches, making them fit into the choker and princess categories.
