Looking to update your closet for a new season? Start by switching up your color palette. We're sharing outfit inspiration around some of the gorgeous hues from Pantone's fall color report for 2013. This week, it's all about bold and bright Vivacious.

We're hot for hot pink this fall and we have no doubt you will be, too. Vivacious is a get-noticed shade of fuchsia that will easily inject some energy into your fall wardrobe — and we're sharing three outfits that make use of this eye-popping shade of pink.

Easy-wearing and elegant

Head to a casual dinner in an outfit that gets noticed. Start with a cute and colorful top (vivacious pink, obviously) and wear it with some polished trousers, in this case gray and cropped. Step into some black ballet flats and finish off the look with a structured black leather tote.

Polished — with pizzazz

Have a hot date? Start by building your look around a bold pink leather skirt. Balance out the mega-watt hue of the skirt with a sweater that doesn't scream quite as loud but that works well with pencil skirts. Add even more sex appeal with triple ankle strap heels and top things off with a pair of art deco-inspired earrings.

Dressed up and ready to go

Say yes to the dress for your next night out and make it pink to really spice things up. Add some black ankle boots rather than pumps and a jacket in case there's a chill (in this case, delicate lace). Complete the vibrant look with a statement cuff.
