Monday a la Mode: Pantone 2014 Fall Color Lineup

By M Kimball, ElephantBeads

I don’t always love all of the Pantone seasonal colors, but Fall 2014 is a fantastic line-up. No matter what 2-3 colors you use in a mash-up, the combination is really quite lovely. Here I have settled on Mauve Mist, Radiant Orchid and Aluminum, and again I’m very satisfied with the result.

Monday a la Mode: Workplace Trends, Autumn 2014


By M Kimball – ElephantBeads

With the holiday season fast approaching, we are re-launching Fashion Monday with a refreshed look and a broader scope. With “Monday a la Mode” you can expect to greet each Monday with a fresh, on-trend perspective. We will broaden our focus to include trending items that can be found on Etsy: not just fashion but home decor, kids’ wear, bed and bath, DIY.

This week, as we celebrate Labor Day in the United States, we share three trends in workplace fashion. Interestingly, with the world around us in chaos, we see fashion trends going “back to basics.”

  1. Classic colors are IN! Black, white and light neutrals feature prominently in Fall 2014 fashions. The old adage that you can’t wear white after Labor Day? It no longer applies. Whether your workplace style is corporate or casual, the basics are what’s trending.
  2. Light layers are classy and comfortable. Cardigans, scarves, light blazers add interest.
  3. Big jewelry is the perfect way to offset the basic colors and simple looks. Whether you select a statement pendant, a cocktail ring, or hammered metal earrings, consider going a little BIGGER this Fall.

Here are some Etsy finds that reflect these workplace trends:


This pale peach scarf can add interesting texture and a bit of warmth to a workplace outfit, whether corporate or casual – available from CrystalCat1989.


Autumn neutrals are workplace-appropriate in this upcycled, designer dress by Lovin’ The Good Old Days.


Textured, hammered copper earrings from Judys Designs will warm up any outfit this Autumn!
