A Unity of Strength, Confidence, and Complexity.

Fully describing the direction of Pantone’s Fall Color Report, this seasons collection of colors revolve around the tranquility, strength, and optimism of the Blue Family. Anchoring a selection of earth tones that are always apart of the fall/winter seasons, this years palette looks to incorporate a more lively and unexpected pop of color.

Opposed to the brighter collection that lead the spring/summer, branching into the earthier tones have been a go-to palette for me all year. Continuously mixing in greens, browns, and blues, the hue of colors might have changed, but not the comfortability of wearing them. Ranging from the constant blues and grays, a spirited addition of reds, pinkish purples, and spicy mustard yellows give the overall collection a standout touch of exotic flavor.

Anxiously waiting for the summer heat to end, I’ve been waiting to fully dive into autumn all year. And here it is…

Fall 2016 Fashion Palette

Riverside – Earmarking the importance of Blue in the palette, the new blue shade of PANTONE 17­-4028 Riverside undeniably takes precedence in the fall collections.

Airy Blue – Pantone 14-4122 Airy Blue’s lofty nature evokes feelings of lightness and freedom.

Sharkskin – There’s an edge to PANTONE 17-3914 Sharkskin, and yet it manages to remain neutral.

Aurora Red – In contrast to the stable backbone of the Fall 2016 palette, PANTONE 18-1550 Aurora Red adds a welcome punch.

Warm Taupe – PANTONE 16-1318 Warm Taupe is a hearty, pleasing and approachable neutral that pairs well with each of the top 10 shades of the Fall 2016 season.

Dusty Cedar – Like Airy Blue, PANTONE 18-1630 Dusty Cedar gives a nod to the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz.

Lush Meadow – PANTONE 18-5845 Lush Meadow brings to mind fresh botanicals and foliage.

Spicy Mustard – Bounces elegantly off other colors in the palette,PANTONE 14-0952 Spicy Mustard is an exotic addition.

Potters Clay – PANTONE 18-1340 Potter’s Clay has an added degree of sophistication and layering.

Bodacious – PANTONE 17-3240 Bodacious speaks to the gender fluidity we continue to see.
