“2016 Fall: A unity of strength, confidence and complexity.” – Pantone
People back away from colors after the summer ends, as if they are suddenly afraid of them, however lets not fall into this trap. Colors can defy our feelings and emotions and wearing lifeless colors can make us feel depressive. Fortunately, this fall we get to see a lot of colors. During these cooler months, we come across colors that are much more neutral and dull in our everydays. Since it surrounds us, we are more likely to wear these borings colors too, but this year, designers decided to spice it up and add some life into the clothes. All the colors are cooler tones, hence the time of the year, but are perfect to bring back some happiness into our style that we might leave when September comes.
The shades above will be the most commonly used colors amongst designers all over the world and soon we will be able to find the in the stores too.
The blue tones radiate sensibilty and confidence, it is probably one of the easiest colors to wear and can never go out of fashion. And though 2016’s fall color palette is vibrant, the neutral earth colors can’t be let go either, they are a part of this season and grey can be pared with any color. The red tones gives us warmth and makes us dynamic through the day. It is especially pleasing on the lips, when our outfit isn’t as special. The pink and purple senses happiness and maybe even make us feel like it could be spring again. The green is probably one of my favourites. It goes with every skin tone, in addition it is very elegant and sophisticated, they couldn’t have chosen a better shade of green. The mustard gives an exotic touch to the whole palette while keeping this autumn very vibrant and unusual.
A few examples below are what we can expect:
