Pantone French Roast #19-1012, The Color That Flatters Everyone (PHOTOS)

In our series, Pantone Color of the Week, we take swatches from the company's color report and translate it to fashion and beauty.

This week we're loving French Roast -- a blend of chocolate-y brown tones. The shade is subtle and sexy, especially on a fun accessory or when it's lining a sharp jacket. You can also create the perfect soft, smokey eye by mixing the shade with hints of gray shadow, or try it on your nails as an alternative to bold, bright hues.

Below, some of our favorite ways to wear it.
