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 pretty Koi.

This peachy-tinted orange hue is perfect for fall — just light enough to not weigh an outfit down but with enough heft to stand up to a cooler season.

There's no better time than fall to break out the sweaters and create a look that's cute, comfy and stylish all at once. Start with a sweater that stands out and add some skinny jeans and knee-high boots. Top off the easy-wearing look with a gray and black striped scarf.

Add some booties and a relaxed yet elegant sweater and you have an ideal go-anywhere look for fall.
