Are you ready to start your Fall shopping and want to know what colors to buy? Here are the latest Fall & Winter 2023/24 shades that will be everywhere, according to Pantone, the world predictor of color.
Pantone Fall Colors Palette
One of my favorite seasons for fashion is Autumn. I love all those gorgeous earthy tones that make me think of gray skies, falling leaves, and long scenic drives in the October countryside. Every year the traditional Fall palette shifts slightly, becoming a little more muted, or bold, or even adding in an unexpected color.
Fall 2023/Winter 2024 is shaping up to be a Vibrant Autumn! The new colors are a reflection of the current mood of the world. As a result we are seeing colors that signify joy and creativity.
Look for bright, unexpected creative colors and color mixes grounded by rich, quiet luxury neutrals + a couple of “what are you doing there shades?” Take a look below.
1. Tender Peach (Peach)
A very tender shade shade of peach that invites a soft and easy touch. Think of this as a warm orangey beige.
2. Rose Violet
I adore this stunning rose-tinged fuchsia. This pinky purple has zing and reminds me of a big pink rose that has just bloomed and is alive with color. It also happens to be Patone’s color of the year!
3. Viva Magenta (Burgundy)
Powerful and empowering, Viva Magenta is describe by Pantone as an animated red encouraging experimentation and self-expression. Red, burgundy, its everywhere but will sell out fast! I have seen a lot of gorgeous Magenta dresses.
4. Red Orange (Orange)
Red is super popular this fall so it’s not wonder the orange we’re seeing is more of a heated red orange. This color is spontaneous and self-assured.
5. Red Dahlia (Brown)
Imposing Red Dahlia is elegance personified. You will see this red-brown everywhere!
6. High Visibility (Yellow)
Exuding the warmth and splendor of the sun, High Visibility is this fall’s version of yellow and expresses joy and good cheer.
7. Persian Jewel (Blue)
Persian Jewel, a noble cooling blue hue inspired by the precious lapis lazuli mineral stone.
8. Carnival Glass ( Green)
Here’s a color that’s a real surprised. Carnival glass is a mentholated green with an icy appearance. It cools and refreshes.
9. Burnt Sienna (Brown)
Tasty green Kohlrabi adds a dash of piquancy just like the vegetable it is named after. This playful green is unexpected.

How to Wear the New Fall Colors
It’s always a good idea to add at least one or two of these new Fall colors into your wardrobe, but be careful you choose ones that work with your seasonal palette. There is no sense in wearing the latest colors if they look horrible on you.
Remember, you don’t have to wear every “in” color to look fashionable. Sure, you may get lucky one year and find that all the trendy colors may fall within your seasonal palette. But that’s not always the case. You can still wear a seasonal color not in your palette as an accent. It can be the color of your shoe, purse, or jewelry.
An example is of High Visibilty (this year’s yellow) is not your best color, then wear it in print. For instance, you could wear a floral dress that has some of this cheerful yellow it. Your other option is to carry an accessory in yellow, such as a yellow bag.
Here are a few examples of prints that combine these new Fall colors.
