Are fashion designers getting in tune with the color needs of the many, rather than the few this fall?
Looking at Pantone’s fashion color report for this fall, I’m seeing a full color palette – and there’s almost one for each of the seven Chakras for energetic support.
How do the fall fashion color trends affect us? Before we get to that, ask yourself this question:
How do you feel when you wear black?
Black will always be a classic color in fashion. And it’s always appropriate for evening when you want to feel chic and sophisticated. However, it won’t make you feel anything more than superficial words can describe. Black is actually the absence of color – so it won’t support you energetically – in any way.
Which brings me back to how this fall’s fashion color trends might be setting a new trend, and in more than one way.
I personally love this color of orange – as it supports the Sacral Chakra. The Sacral Chakra is not only great for fertility – but for vitality as well. I’ve just started my new health regimen – and I need all the extra support for vitality I can get, so I’ll be wearing more orange gems like Carnelian, Songea Sapphire, Aventurine and Fire Agate this fall.
Put on any shade of orange for the day when you’re feeling a bit sluggish and see if it doesn’t give you an energy boost to your day.
Hervé Léger is showing us some beautiful dresses in ‘Linden Green’ – which is one of my favorite colors. Mostly because it supports the Heart Chakra. All green gems resonate with the Heart Chakra, and will help you to feel more balanced and centered – something we all need these days.
The Heart Chakra will also help you to improve your Health, Wealth and Abundance of every kind. Great gems to support your Heart Chakra are: Jade, Prehnite, Green Tourmaline, Peridot and of course – Emerald. Personally speaking, I wear my Jade and Prehnite bracelets every day. I figure you can’t get enough of a good thing, right?
Wear any green gem – anywhere on your body and see if a gentle wave of calm doesn’t come over you. And, it will stay for as long as you’re in tune with the essence of green’s soothing energy.
New for Fall – More Vintage Treasures
I’m scouring the Florentine markets and shops for more vintage treasures – and my new fall collection is full of what I’ve found and reinvented.
More designs will be available soon, and in more great gem combinations with Aventurine, Amethyst and Aquamarine. Matching bracelet and earrings will round out the collection, so stay tuned.

I’m loving the vintage sunglasses – what do you think? I’ll be adding more Vintage gem-embellished sunglasses as I go, and will be debuting my new line early Spring 2014 – so keep an eye out for more news as we move through the next few months.
Nanette Lepore is showing some really great colors, and color combinations this fall. No matter what name you want to call any shade of purple, when it comes to gems, Amethyst and Tanzanite are two are my favorites.
Partially for their beauty, and the other part is because they support the Third Eye Chakra – which if open and functioning, will give you all of the inner visionary guidance and inspiration you will need.
I sleep with two beautiful Amethyst crystals on my night stand, and I often get some of my best ideas during sleep and meditation hours. The best gems to support your Third Eye Chakra are: Amethyst and Tanzanite. Amethyst is also known for its protective and healing energy.
I’ll be sharing more about this Fall color trends, but I’ll leave that for another day.
