“Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.”
-Leatrice Wiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
As you all may know, each season brings new trends in clothing and color. And this season, Pantone has yet again defined the language of color with 10 color trends to add to your wardrobe!
“So, what’s on the color wheel this season?” You ask.
This season’s Fall report is bringing warm hues of blues, reds, nudes, yellows, and greens. The EGL fashion squad grows giddy with anticipation just waiting for the grand reveal! In addition to taking a look at our personal faves, we’re also going to throw in a small hint of fashion inspiration through the use of style boards.
Now, let’s get started… Shall we?
For our first fabulous hue, we’ve chosen to follow the Yellow Brick Road and fall into this Emerald City inspired color called “Lush Meadow.”
It’s a sultry and luxurious green that looks rich and super expensive. To accent this bold hue, try incorporating pops of white and black for a simple flair. If you are looking to make more of a statement, try adding hints of silver or gold to your look.
Next up, we take a look at the hue named “Warm Taupe.”
Warm Taupe reminds us of that warm cup of coffee with cream. Add a little flavor to your Fall fashion by looking at suede coats, bombers, trenches, and thigh high boots in this hue.
Our third tone entitled “Dusty Cedar” is a fresh one!
Think of a crisp autumn day in Upper Manhattan when the brownstone meets the autumn leaves when wearing this Fall color. This hue makes for the perfect accent to all of your denim.
Ladies, look out because the color “Sharkskin” is about to bite!
This rendition of grey is the perfect shade to marry along with metallics and gunmetal tones. If you are looking to keep your look clean, try taking on this shade with a monochromatic mindset. Standing out in the crowd won’t be difficult at all!
Our fourth Pantone is entitled “Spicy Mustard” and we have fallen deep in love!
That Spicy Mustard is looking ever so saucy this season! Don’t you agree? We are seeing this color on leathers, trousers, and dresses, alike. It’s a nice way to shine bright even through the dead of winter.
So, there you have it, folks…
On your next shopping excursion, be sure to take EGL’s fall fashion inspirations with you so that you can successfully paint yourself in the hottest hues this season!
