Top 5 Colors for Autumn ‘16

Inspired by feelings of tranquility, strength, and optimism, fall’s ethereal palette is a collection of both calming and exuberant hues. Fashion Fabrics Club has rounded up the top five colors you need to upgrade your fall rotation and the fabrics that make them shine.

cool-blueCool Blue

A variety of blue hues are leading the colorful palette of this fall’s fashions. And what luck that so many fall basics are perfect in this versatile tone: denim boyfriend jeans, navy silk blend tunics, periwinkle sweaters, midnight blue suede skirts, the list goes on and on.

scarlet-redScarlet Red

A pop of red, like a swipe of lipstick, has an almost magical way of injecting a look with excitement—making even the most basics very unbasic. Ease into its boldness by using it as a contrast piece in a layered look: a red sweater with denim skinnies and a plaid scarf, a twill blazer over a T-shirt with ripped jeans, a chiffon button-up under a white peplum coat and black cigarette pants, to name just a few.

mustard-yellowMustard Yellow

An all-time favorite autumn hue, mustard yellow, is at the same time playful and sophisticated, making it a perfect partner with a host of the season’s biggest players. Try it in a cotton/poly blend midi skirt paired with a simple cotton T, in a turtleneck knit sweater with a slim maxi skirt, or in a sleeveless suiting fabric trench over a simple top and jeans.

emerald-greenEmerald Green

Fall just isn’t fall without the presence of a jewel tone, this year it’s served up in a tantalizing emerald green. In fact, fall’s “It” skirt, the pleated maxi, has been sported by the fashion elite on the streets of Fashion Week all month long in rich emerald green. But it’s also a great pick for flirty fit-and-flare skirts, collegiate elbow-patched sweaters, and crisp cotton shirtdresses.

slate-graySlate Gray

It’s always good to have a host of anchors in your closet—meaning articles that pair well with others, in color and style. Slate gray is fall’s anchor shade; it makes a happy partner with every single one of the season’s trending shades and looks super chic in monochromatic looks, too. For this fall, add slate gray into your collection in both laid-back (like an oversized cashmere sweater, denim skinnies, cotton Tees) and more dressed up (like tweed blazers and wool skirts) pieces.
