Embrace the Colors of the Season

If there’s one thing that makes us fall for fall, it’s the season’s distinct palette. From autumn leaves to harvest hues, a kaleidoscope of colors are on display. When it comes to defining your fall style, don’t be afraid to take some notes from nature and embrace color—but don’t forget to work in some neutrals, too. Here are some on-trend options to get you ready for the season.

1. why not wine?
Red always makes an impact and is perfect for fall. A deep burgundy shoe or bag can add an elegant touch as a statement piece, or the hue can serve as a solid foundation for a sophisticated autumnal look. If you’re feeling a little more fiery, try cherry red or more orange shades. They provide a warmer, energetic feel.

2. “olive” it!
Military olive may be a key component in camo, but it still can help you stand out this fall. It offers color while coming pretty close to being a neutral, making it the perfect foundation to build an outfit on. But if brighter hues have you green with envy, emeralds and blue-greens also are options for the season. Or add some high fashion edge with a pop of a more yellow-green shade like celery.

3. back in black
Think black is basic? You’re right! But where would your wardrobe be without the basics? It’s hard to think of a more versatile color, and with the right styling and a little imagination, it’s anything but boring. Other neutrals that are on trend for fall: Pantone names Almond Oil (a subtle off-white) and Sleet (a classic, light gray).

4. feeling blue?
Pantone’s color of the year is Classic Blue. The timeless hue recalls the sky at dusk and offers a calming dependability—something we could all use right now, even if only in our wardrobes. Want more blue? Classic navy shades are strong enough to stand on their own, but also work as a neutral background. Try a deep royal blue for a bolder pop of color, or select a lighter, gray-tinged option for a more subdued look.
