The warm, muted colors of fall are some of my favorites, and this year they’re even a little more exciting than usual. According to Pantone, the world authority on color, brighter, lighter, almost glowing fall colors are the trendy new shades. Here’s a look at what you have probably already started seeing in stores, and how to wear the fall 2018 colors.
1. MARTINI OLIVE
These deep gray-green may remind you of army green I find it smoother, more sophisticated and Urban.
2. CEYLON YELLOW
Some of the colors for fall 2018 starting edging onto the fashion scene a year ago. I bought a sweater very close in color to this last Septemeber. It’s definitely not a color for everyone, but if you have warm skin and can wear it, it is savory and spicy and adds an exotic touch.
Yellow seems to be big this fall, and this bold Limelight color couldn’t have a better name. It is animated and effervescent and no doubt, the center of attention. Touches of this here and there will bring your fall wardrobe to life.
4. RUSSET ORANGE
Earthy, warm, who can resist this color in the fall?
5. VALIANT POPPY
The red trend, especially head to toe, continues and the red of 2018 is a clear poppy red that looks like it was borrowed from spring. It is brave, outgoing and alluring.
6. RED PEAR
Hands down, this is one of my favorite color for fall 2018. It’s delicious, deep and rich but it doesn’t have as much black in it as similar shades of the past. It’s an easy to wear color and brings life to the wearer without being overbearing.
We normally think of dark plums in the fall but ultraviolet- Pantone’s color of the year, is front and center in the fall palette. This color is mysterious, inventive and imaginative. Have fun with it.
8. CROCUS PETAL
Cultivated, refined and light and airy like spring, this is a new and interesting twist.
9. QUETZAL GREEN
This teal shade is not new but combined with these other interesting fall shades look fresh and different.
10. NEBULAS BLUE
A fresh, starry-eyed blue that brings life to gray fall days.
