Top Five Colors for Fall
This season’s color palette is all about naturalistic hues and cool, earthy tones. Here’s a list of the top five colors from Pantone’s fashion color report for fall and some easy ways to bring in the shades into your wardrobe:
This greenish-gray color is cool and soothing. It acts as a neutral when paired with other bright shades, but alone it has a way of standing out. Try it in a full-length wool overcoat to heighten the drama, or go for an accessory like a cashmere scarf or a pair of chic little flats to dip into the trend.
A powerful blue-gray, Stormy Weather gives off a rich, luxurious, mature feel. It’s the perfect shade for the season’s sweater dresses, slouchy knitted sweaters, and chunky, oversized scarves.
Mellow, warming, and comforting, Oak Buff is a gorgeous golden-yellow color that brings to mind rays of fall summer sunshine. It’s a great color for twill trench coats and looks incredibly rich in suede: try it in a mini skirt or short jacket.
This season’s take on the time-honored olive green brings the earthy shade to a more sophisticated level. Skinny jeans is an obvious choice for this subtle shade, but it’s also super chic in jumpsuits, rompers, and chiffon blouses.
The winey red-brown Marsala is Pantone’s color of the year, so it’s no surprise that it made it’s way to the top of the color list for fall. It has a way of making an outfit look more refined, bringing an element of sophistication to distressed denim. And it is a delicious and romantic alternative to black for cocktail dresses and silk or satin evening gowns.
