Vibrant Hues To Give your Wardrobe a Pop of Color This Fall

Tangerine

One of the hottest colors of the Spring/Summer season is going to carry over into Fall. While it is part of the orange color family, this statement color is getting a seasonal update for fall. Juicy citrus and warm autumnal additions are included in the spectrum, just in time to bring some fall flair. Tangerine makes a bold yet subtle statement when worn on its own. One of my favorite combos is sporting this look monochromatically with lighter shades of peach, like the Marc Jacobs Fall 2020 look featured below. This color can also be worn as color block when combined with pastels. To make a strong fashion statement, this shade is worn best with a chic 60’s style aesthetic, such as the Marc Jacobs vintage inspired coat featured below. This color is giving off some major pumpkin spice vibes and we love it!

Yellows

Honey, Banana, and Canary are some of the many shades of yellow featured on this season’s runways. An unexpected colorway for this time of year, as we are used to seeing its cousin in the form of jewel-tone mustard. This is a refreshing change for the cooler season. Look for it in clothing and accessory items. These bright, saturated versions will leave us feeling happy and energized during those dull winter days. It is the stand -out color to brighten up your closet this season.

Pinks

Pink is a favorite among Millenials and there is going to be a range of hues in this color to choose from for fall. Designers like Fendi and Marc Jacobs filled fashion week shows with an ombre palette of this romantic, feminine pigment. From bold to muted variations and shades of sorbet, whether you prefer lighter tints of pastel or vibrant fuchsia intensity!!! there is a perfect pink for everyone.

Greens

Another trending color to focus on this fall is green. From chartreuse, the neonesque green sheen or olive, different greens are going to be an essential color amid the fall and winter seasons. There’s an array of warm, cool, and universal tones featured to satisfy all complexions. Forest Green on leather looks kept on popping up on every other runway. This reinvention of the earthy greens we normally see puts a fresh spin and new take on this classic color.

RED

Making a big hit in fashion, red is going to rock this season. This powerful, sexy color was seen all over fashion, from Isabel Marant and Bottega Veneta to Altuzzara. Red had a strong presence in both Couture and Ready to Wear.  Ever since the romantic primary was popularized by Valentino, fashion has always had a love affair with red.  This season’s reds are an evolution from the amorous shades of the past. Forms of burgundy, samba red, and fired brick are some of the many tones available in stores. Just like your best red lipstick or nail polish, red is a staple and must-have in your closet. Maximalism is in. So don’t shy away from bolder pieces such as exaggerated shoulders, leather, full-body sequenced, and fringe looks!!! Not to mention, if you’re looking to achieve the quintessential holiday red, look no further!

Flesh Tones/ Second Skin The Fenty Effect

Nudes and flesh, skin-colored tones are also a highly prevalent trend for the fall-winter 20/21 season. Just as skin shades come in varying degrees of color so will there be a plethora of options as well in fashion. Meant to be worn in a way that blends in with your skin, this is known as the Fenty effect. It was created and named for Rihanna’s efforts in her makeup line to recognize and include a wider scope of tints that can accommodate the beauty in all coloring of women from porcelain to espresso. The inspiration from fashion will translate into beiges, browns, and tans alike.

Classic Blue

This is the color selected by Pantone as the color of the year for 2020. A universal medium blue that can’t go wrong. Effortlessly wearable yet calming and rich simultaneously it transcends any piece of fashion. Playing with the value of the shade, you can find it in deeper and brighter alternatives too. This is a great building block color to bring into your repertoire.

In contrast to the bright greens mentioned above, we also have deeper greens to choose from. Evergreen or Ultramarine green are those classic darker greens falling within the same category as emerald and forest. These are the developed rich greens we usually reach for come fall.

Color Combos/ Mixing Hues

There were two main takeaways from the fashion world for trends in this fall winter season. Color is center stage and there’s a way to wear it!

Vibrant color is a key factor in place of the neutral and dusty tones we tend to generally see the second half of the year. Instead, the color palette is lively, and fun filled with surprisingly bright saturated bold hues. It’s also clear that designers are using gradients of these colors in all the shades off the color wheel to lend an endless eye-catching rainbow.   

To experiment with fall’s wonderful colors, there are several ways to wear them. Try mixing color combos or color blocking when it comes to pastels. For bolder more saturated shades, wear alone to make a statement, pair a bold color with neutrals or as an accessory for a cool pop of color, or create a monochromatic style by using varying shades of the same color together.
