article_fall-2013-colors.jpgSo long, summer! Here at FN, we're more than ready to stow away the past season's neons and pastels in order to make room for new duds featuring the Fall 2013 Pantone shades. With names like Acai and Vivacious, these are the colors we—and you—will be wearing all through the -ber months.

Start injecting these hues into your wardrobe! Here are our top five Pantone-declared colors for the new season and how to wear them for day and night.

1_fall-2013-colors.jpgMYKONOS BLUE
A color that reflects the architectural details found in its namesake Grecian island, Mykonos Blue has all the makings of a classic hue.

Day: Relish the remaining sunny days in a sweet yet sexy crop top. Contrast your pants with sandals in a look-at-me shade.
Embossed crop top, P1,745, Miss Selfridge; cropped pants, P2,380, G2000; daisy charm bracelet, P349.75, Yhansy; t-bar sandal, P2,795, Le Bunny Bleu

Night: Set hearts racing in a whisper-thin top and clingy disco pants. Your footwear of choice? Heels high enough to boost your confidence, yet low enough to keep you on your feet.
Checkered camisole, P555, Forever 21; disco pants, P2,295, Topshop; seahorse ring, P350, Jean & Rosz; ankle-strap sandal, P3,495, Staccato at CMG

2_fall-2013-colors.jpgVIVACIOUS
Unlike its charming and sweet light pink sister, Vivacious is loud, proud, and eye-catching.

Day: Hit a home run in a casual baseball tee and a swingy skater skirt. Since you're only wearing the shirt for show, there's no reason why you can't style it with a pair of wedges.
Baseball sweatshirt, P815, Forever 21; skater skirt, P845, LOVE by Bayo; pendant necklace, P299, Yhansy; wedge sandal, P3,499, Staccato at CMG

Night: Paint the town pink in leg-lengthening floral shorts. Flats won't make much of an impact; statement heels are more appropriate.

3_fall-2013-colors.jpgACAI
Regal, rich, and alluring, Acai is a foolproof shade for the holidays. This may just be the FN team's favorite for the new season.

Day: Living in a tropical country does have its perks, one of which is dressing in breezy pieces all year long. We can almost hear the beach calling.
Digital print dress, P1,495, Plains & Prints; bead bracelet, P355, Yhansy; jeweled sandal, P1,399, CLN

Night: Va-va-voom! We couldn't decide what we love more about this dress—the gorgeous purple hue or the curve-enhancing silhouette—that we had to call a tie.
Bandage dress, P3,095, Miss Selfridge; stone and chain cuff, P425, Yhansy; studded sandal, P1,499, Memorata by CLN

4_fall-2013-colors.jpgSAMBA
A fiery red like Samba needs to be worn with confidence in spades. Are you up for the sartorial challenge?

Day: A romper is just about the easiest thing to wear on lazy weekends. Amp the cuteness quotient with patent doll shoes.
Floral romper, P3,645, Topshop; heart ring, P280, Jean & Rosz; Mary Jane flat, P1,049, The Little Things She Needs

Night: Wearing red to a hot date is a no-brainer. Save the feminine touch for round two; when you need to wow, sexy and seductive is the way to go.
Checkered dress, P3,095, Miss Selfridge; velvet and chain necklace, P485, Yhansy; multi-strap sandal, P3,999, Memorata by CLN

5_fall-2013-colors.jpgEMERALD
Spring 2013's Emerald makes a return this season. Wear it on anything and everything, from jewelry to frocks to shoes.

Day: Combine boy and girl elements in a Peter Pan collar top and captoe brogues. We like the dressed down yet pulled together appeal of this look—perfect for lunch with friends.
Peter Pan collar top, P695, Plains & Prints; shorts, P995, Bayo; arrow earrings, P320, Jean & Rosz; oxford, P2,795, Le Bunny Bleu

Night: Set off a striking emerald blazer with pristine white separates. Black may be the obvious choice for night, but white ensures you stand out from the crowd.
Waterfall blazer, P2,395, Dorothy Perkins; blouse, P1,980, G2000; trousers, P1,250, Plains & Prints; dangling earrings, P349.75, Yhansy; strappy sandal, P1,999, CMG
