In our garden this fall, we're going back to basics with head coverings in natural, subdued colors: Honey Yellow, Iron, Creme Brulee, Rust, Sand, and Coffee. These mushroom clusters that sprang up overnight are bucking the puffy, rounded trend with these flat, taupe caps. I detect a slight Asian influence.
On the other side of the yard, these Sawtooth Oak Acorns have opted for frilly caps rather than the boring smooth traditional ones worn by the hundreds of other acorns in the garden. While these definitely have more panache, they don't seem to fit as well as the older style. Will this trend catch on? Only time will tell . . . but, if UGG boots can become popular anything is possible.
If you'd like to see what colors are in for people this year, consult the Pantone Color Report. Yes, the people who know what color exactly matches your company's logo have now moved into the world of fashion and design. As for me, I'm eagerly awaiting April to see what fashions are on for Spring!
