Turbulence

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 smoky, sophisticated Turbulence.

The silvery charcoal of Turbulence, along with the word itself, brings to mind storm clouds and rain drops. But these outfits are far from drab. We're sharing three ways to wear this fall's must-have gray hue.

1

Cool and casual

Bold red skinny jeans are balanced perfectly by a chic shade of gray in a fall outfit perfect for a casual weekend date or outing with friends. Add some mid-heel ankle boots and a cute silver cuff to round out the look that can easily take you from the brunch buffet to cocktail hour with the addition of a sleek blazer.

Polished — with a twist

An elegant cropped gray jacket gets a vibrant boost thanks to an eye-catching, brightly-hued skirt in this office-ready outfit that's far from boring. Complete this workplace look with snakeskin pumps and a simple strappy cami. When put all together, you end up with a unique yet polished ensemble for work.

Daytime diva

Start your stylish look off with a high-waisted pleated skirt in fall's hottest shade of gray. The cute skirt can be both casual and office-ready depending on what you wear it with. Slip on a tank top and lace-up booties and finish off the outfit with a denim jacket.
