French roast is the new black for fall! This rich, dark brown is softer than black and balances out some of fall’s more vibrant color trends for 2012. Pantone describes this color as “rich and robust” and “a tasty, sophisticated hue that is a great alternative to the black and charcoal basics typically worn in the fall.”
