Keeping up with the latest styles is the focus for most women, but wearing the “in” colors and color combinations are just as important if you want to look current and hip.
Pantone, the global authority on color, has surveyed the designers of New York Fashion Week and put together this list of the most important hues for Fall and Winter 2017:
Red is right up there at the top of the color list, especially this Gorgeous Grenadine shade which is bright, confident and self-assured. Talk about an attention getter!
Close on the heels of red is this beautiful burgundy shade that Pantone has officially named Tawny Port. It takes red to new depths and is super sophisticated and tasteful.
3. Soft Pink
They call it Ballet Slipper, and that’s exactly what it reminds you of. This gorgeous, gentle shade is super flattering on most women and will give you a rosy, healthy glow.
4. Toasty Brown
This snug, warm brown is officially called Butterum because it evokes drinking a glass of Butterum by a roaring fire on a cool autumn evening. Love this!
Navy Peony is a dependable and an anchoring shade that has become everyone’s new favorite. It’s quickly replacing black as the go-to neutral because it’s softer and more lively, especially on aging skin.
Neutral Gray continues to be popular and looks classy with navy this year. It can be used as an accent or a head-to-toe statement shade.
7. Dark Green
Envision a forest – sheltering and protective as evergreen trees, and you’ve nailed the color they are calling Shaded Spruce. I’m seeing this everywhere already!
8. Golden Lime
There’s no other way to describe the many Earthy tones with a twist, that we are seeing this fall. The golden undertones of the hue known as Golden Lime make this yellow-green shade a refreshing way to pep up fall classics.
9. Cool Blue
It’s cool, but it’s fresh and bright too. Marina Blue is the color that adds life to the Fall 2017 Color Palette.
Fall wouldn’t be fall with this quintessential autumn color. Autumn Maple is tawny, russet and a great way to introduce warmth into your fall wardrobe.
Which are your favorites of the fall 2017 color trends, and are there any you wouldn’t touch without a ten-foot pole? Why?
