Pantone is undoubtedly the authority when it comes to predicting the key colour trends for each season and its clever team of forecasters have pinpointed 'Potter's Clay' as one to watch for autumn/winter 2016.

The great thing about this earthy hue is it's neutral enough to wear for any occasion and suits just about everyone - all while being utterly sophisticated.

Here are a few ways we'll be adding it into our makeup bag and wardrobe this season...

Eyes It just so happens that Potter's Clay is a really flattering shade to dust across your eyelids. This russet orange hue is laced with earthy undertones, for a subtle pop of rustic colour. MAC eyeshadow in Red Brick, £13

CheeksAside from being a beautiful shade to contour with, Potter's Clay adds the perfect combination of reddish-brown to your cheekbones, like you've just stepped off the plane from a beachside location. NARS Matte Multiple in Exumas, £29

Nails The time has come to change up our nail colours to match the season and it just so happens that Potter's Clay makes for the perfect autumnal hue. The orange undertones ensure it's anything but flat, giving it that warming edge. Essie Fall Collection Nail Colour in Playing Koi, £7.99

AccessoriesWhy not inject the warmth of Potter's Clay into your winter wardrobe? You could even just add the odd hint of this orange-toned shade into your life via winter hat - we love this Accessorize Spice Floppy Hat, £29 -  or a pair ankle boots, like the russet orange beauties from Topshop, £79, in the image above.
