Samba

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 fiery Samba.

Even just the word “samba” evokes a sense of fun and vibrancy, which is why we're so excited to incorporate the fabulous shade into our fall wardrobe. Take a look at three versatile outfits we put together using Samba.

All eyes on you

Not every event calls for an outfit that stands out, but if you really want to make a wow-worthy fashion impression, we suggest starting with a dress in fiery red. Add a statement necklace and clutch with gold detail and some embellished pumps to finish off the high-octane look.

Give your work wardrobe a kick-start with a mega-watt pencil skirt, in this case vibrant red. Slip on a cream blouse with pretty pleats, some eye-catching snakeskin pumps and a pair of elegant but understated earrings and you've got a great weekday look.
