Red Pear (Pantone 19-1536)
Burgundy is a colour choice that’s mega for fall, but the way to wear the oxblood tone is to drench yourself in it. Match a puffed-sleeved top with a tutu skirt for maximum effect. Offset the look with accessories of a different hue for contrast.

Valiant Poppy (Pantone 18-1549)
Effusive is right. This is a fun splash of red that looks vibrant and fresh. But with this tone, don’t go top-to-toe unless you’re into looking like a giant exclamation mark. Instead, reference the shade in bits and pieces, and apply a slick lipstick in a matching hue.
