Pantone color projections to shape your Fall wardrobe
Every season, fashionistas, artists, and designers hold their breath in anticipation for the release of the Pantone color projections for Fall, following New York and London Fashion Week. What is interesting about this season’s colors is that they are not incredibly trendy, but instead super practical and easy to incorporate into your wardrobe.
The palette leans towards a timeless look and does not focus on vibrant and bold colors, but instead elegance. So, cozy up with your Pumpkin Spice latte and come along as we serve up our dish on this season’s color trends and how to weave them into your Fall wardrobe.
What are this season’s hottest colors?
According to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, they are “reflecting a ‘less is more’ mindset that is becoming increasingly important to consumers prioritizing value and functionality.”
Consumers are looking to extend the life of their wardrobes and mix and match more sensibly and efficiently. Therefore, Pantone’s official release to Vogue and beyond for the 2020 Fall/Winter season decreed that it is time for icy blues, Earth tones, classic neutrals, deep reds, and lovely jewel tones. Understand that these colors are not boring in any sense of the word but instead are robust, easy to get creative with, and bolster confidence in the persons wearing them.
Here is how our favorite brands are weaving these colors into their lines.
This Fall, designers have brought us practicality with edge. Incorporating prints and interesting throwbacks in silhouette choices, designers mixed the 2020 Fall color palette to entice and elicit joy with simplicity. Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, and a slew of other designers used plaid this season, and it has been dubbed the “it print”.
Mixing the lovely colors from Pantone, designers rolled out feminine punk with edgy suits and then transitioned to softer, structured dresses with their plaid creations. Nicole Miller celebrated paisley prints with gorgeous silk dresses and billowing tops that shimmered and evoked joy.
A power piece for this year’s color selection is the thigh-high boot. Prowling down the runway, we saw designers blend colors and prints to create boots that were a welcome juxtaposition to the feminine cuts models were wearing. Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera wove pure magic, showcasing unbelievable corsets for their approach to the new cocktail attire – illustrating a new and colorful way to enhance staple pieces.
