We are coming close to my favorite time of year . . . Fall ya'll! And each season the amazing people at Pantone Color Institute create fashion color trend reports. It's basically their top color picks for fashion designers to use for their coming seasonal collections. And yes my post is a little late. As Pantone usually releases their trend report for fall usually in February. But as Fall is approaching I thought I would share the colors to help "spice" up your fall wardrobe. There are a total of 31 Pantone colors this fall season.16 of them are from the New York Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 Color Palette collection and the remaining are from London the Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 Color Palette. I am very excited for this fall season in fashion as the colors vary from bold and strong reds like Pantone color Chili Pepper, to softer hues like Pantone color Vanilla Custard that are not usually expected in the fall season. However when paired properly these colors will leave you with a bold sense of confidence. Below are the colors from the New York Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 Color Palette collection. If you want to view the colors from the London Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 Color Palette. So here are the colors from the New York Collection . . .
Pantone 19-1557 Chili Pepper
Fall’s leading color is super spicy especially with a name like Chili Pepper. This shade of red
is exciting and is designed to stimulate your fashion the same way that a chili pepper stimulates your taste buds. This red adds just the right drama and excitement while still knowing how to be classy all at the same time. No wonder it's the number one fall pick. I would recommend pairing this with
Pantone 19-1650 Biking Red
Biking Red comes cycling in at number 2 for Falls color choice. While Chili Pepper has a warmer side that adds a spice of drama, Biking Red is deeper which makes this color as adventurous as its name. The deep hues of red make it strong and powerful. This visual power house could be worn by itself or pairs easy with others. Take a look below for my recommendations on the perfect pairs.
Pantone 12-1110 Créme de Péche
Is a very softer, calming shade of peach. This color isn’t just soft and calming it's a perfect addition to this years fall season that you wouldn't normally see in fall. Just because this is not a normal fall color I can guarantee that these soft and warm peaches are going to be the next "pink" thing. Peach hues are here to stay. In fact Pantone rolled out two peach shades for fall. Probably because peaches tend to look good against all skin tones. This may not be a bold color this season but this soft, warm hue is the perfect compliment to almost all of the colors in this seasons trend report. Here are a few of my pairing suggestions
Pantone 15-1530 Peach Pink
This is the second peach tone this fall season. Peach Pink has more of brighter energetic feel vs Créme De Péche giving it a flattering glow. And just like Créme De Péche, Peach Pink will pair nicely with the majority of the Pantone fall 2019 colors and all skin tones. This color is very flattering.
Pantone 19-1234 Rocky Road
With a name like Rocky Road who won't fall in love with this rich brown tone. It is a sweet indulgent shade of deep brown that will leave one feeling grounded. Rocky Road is also a earthly tone, so the name is a perfect fit for this sweet and earthly shade. This shade will go great with so many styles including funky new prints and flattering nearly every skin tone.
Pantone 17-1926 Fruit Dove
Fruit Dove is a bold and stunning shade of pink that can't be ignored. Fruit Dove is vibrant and fun and will make all the right statements worn on it's own or paired. Fruit Dove was used a lot throughout New York Fashion Week. Simply put Fruit Dove is a stunning, powerful color. Pinks are tending and on the rise and this one is top on my list. Here are a few of my pairing favs. . .
Pantone 18-1155 Sugar Almond
Sugar Almond is a sweet mid-tone shade of brown. Sugar Almond is mixed with warm tones making this on the lighter shade of brown. And just like Rocky Road this brown is a grounding color. This appetizing shade is a great option from Pantone that will look amazing this fall season.
Pantone 15-1150 Dark Cheddar
Dark Cheddar is a sharp blend of yellow and orange. This sharpness is not a dark as it sounds, its a perfect blend of yellow and orange making it a bold master piece. There are a few orange shades this fall season and Dark Cheddar and Orange Tiger are my top two favorite. See below for my bold and sharp pairing ideas . . .
Pantone 19-4055 Galaxy Blue
Galaxy Blue is bight, entertaining and out of this world. With a name like Galaxy Blue this color is a representative of the greater galaxy and reminds me of a starry night when paired with some this seasons top colors. Besides Galaxy Blue being out of this world, this color is also grounding and can pair well with some of the red tones this season. See below as to what else is pairs nice with. . .
Pantone 18-4217 Bluestone
Bluestone is a quiet and calming color. Bluestone soft shade of blue making it a very cool neutral. Even though Bluestone is a very neutral shade, to me it seems to represent a light put powerful and futuristic shade of blue much like its brilliantly paired blue hue Galaxy Blue. See what other colors this season pair well with Bluestone . . .
Pantone Orange Tiger
Orange Tiger is the brightest orange this fall season. Orange tiger is alive and filled with vibrant energy making it fearless. Orange Tiger has just the right amount of boldness which makes this a perfect hue of orange to wear all on it's own. For those not as bold as Orange Tiger this will also be a beautiful accent especially when paired with . . .
Pantone 19-6050 Eden
Of all of the green shades this fall season Eden is the ideal choice of green. Eden is a deep, dark, cool shade of green that is calming and intense all at the same time. Eden gives the opportunity to go to another deep tone instead of the usual navy, or black this season. Eden will be a good color to pull off the fall season trend "Monochrome".
Pantone 12-0815 Vanilla Custard
Vanilla Custard is a smooth and creamy white. This lovely off-white Pantone color is the perfect light and airy shade for completing all looks this fall season. Vanilla Custard is slightly creamier than Rutabaga which is a color found in the London the Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 Color Palette Collection. Vanilla Custard can pair well with just about any color this season. One of my favorite Vanilla Custard looks off of New York Fashion Week was one of the opening outfits at Dolce & Gabbana.
Pantone 19-3815 Evening Blue
Evening Blue is a confident and classic, deep blue resembling the evening sky. Evening Blue is one of new shades of confidence. This deep navy could almost be mistaken for black from a far. Evening Blue can be a great compliment in any outfit. Evening Blue was show cased in the Giorgio Armani New York Fashion Week 19 show.
Pantone 16-0000 Palmoa
Paloma is a soft and elegant cool shade of gray. The word Paloma being another name for dove brings life and meaning to this soft color. This suave shade is a perfect fit with the classic color trends this Fall and Winter Season. Paloma is lighter than Frost Gray found in the London collection. You can find Paloma in Proenza Schouler New York Fashion Week Runway Show as designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez combined this light gray with a tiger print dress.
Pantone 17-0530 Guacamole
Guacamole brings refreshing foundation that is a vibrant green. Guacamole is energetic and can hold its own with the rest of the green hues this season. Guacamole is a preferred color this season as it compliments the many browns and warm colors you will see this season. If you look at Guacamole on the color wheel it is directly across all of the warm colors, which makes for interesting and playful pairing.
