Fashion colors come together this fall and winter to express the many moods of the two seasons, ranging from sophisticated to lively and thoughtfully introspective to irrepressibly elated.

From fiery samba red to elegant emerald, see the top 10 fashion colors for fall and winter 2013-2014.

The top 10 colors for fall 2013/winter 2014, according to the Pantone Color Institute:

1. Emerald
With the changing seasons, the greens from spring evolve and develop. Multifaceted Emerald, which is the 2013 color of the year, continues to sparkle and fascinate, bringing luxury and elegance to the palette.

2. Linden Green
This yellow-toned green offers a lightness and brightness to the deeper shades of fall.

3. Mykonos Blue
This is a bold, meditative blue, for a classic and relaxed fall look. Pair either Emerald or Linden Green with Mykonos Blue.

4. Acai
Exotic Acai is an elegant shade of purple that adds mystery and richness to the palette. Pair Acai with Emerald for a regal look or Samba for a dramatic look.

5. Samba
This is a spirited, fiery shade of red. Wear this, and you will be the unforgettable lady in red.

6. Koi
This decorative orange with its dazzling and shimmering qualities is a statement color that serves as a pick-me-up for your wardrobe.

7. Vivacious
This is an unruly and wildly deep fuchsia that adds an ebullient sensuality to the palette.

8. Deep Lichen Green
This is a naturally lush shade of green that creates a dynamic juxtaposition that captures both ends of the seasonal spectrum. Pair it with Vivacious.

9. Turbulence
This dark mercurial gray is a wardrobe staple. As a neutral color, it pairs gracefully with more expressive colors within the palette, such as Samba, Koi and Vivacious.

10. Carafe
This is a rich, glamorous brown that provides a more interesting and sophisticated alternative to the black basics usually worn in colder months.

A final word: No matter what the designers are showing, you should buy clothes in colors that look good on you. Consider your personal palette: the color of your eyes, hair and skin tone. Find the colors that make your eyes twinkle and give your skin a natural glow.

According to ColorConnections.com, your best colors will not only make you excited about how you look, but also make you look healthy and young. And that is bound to get you compliments!
