The days are getting shorter and our cardigans are getting heavier (many fashion commentators say the cardigan's dead, but we'll never give ours up).

And yes, autumn's arrival does mean the dash from shower to towel is all-the-more-painful, but one good thing it heralds is the chance to invest in a few key wardrobe pieces. 

"Just as the leaves change in autumn, the consumer will enjoy the ability to change their 'look' and try a new approach to their wardrobe for brisk days ahead," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute, who have just released their key colours for fall fashion.

The Pantone colour reports have a huge influence over retailers, so click through the gallery above for the gorgeous jewel tones and classic shades that will be filtering down to New Zealand stores before you can say runway-to-reality.
