Pantone’s Color Report For Fall 2016
As we are getting closer to fall and most of us are starting to think about our fall wardrobes, I thought this would be a good opportunity to look at Pantone’s color report for fall 2016. Bare in mind that there are lots of color trend forecasting companies and they might have slightly different colors in their reports, so it is hard to have one universal color story that works for everyone. However, the Pantone Color Institute is one of the most used resources for color direction by brands and companies globally, so today I am going to cover their fall color story for 2016.
Riverside is a cool and calming yet strong shade of blue that displays vibrancy and sophistication.
Airy Blue was used by a lot of designers on the runway to show weightlessness in a world of conflict. It is meant to evoke serenity and calm.
A modern, perfect color for fall that would pair perfectly with any other bright or muted color palette. It is a practical yet perfectly chic color for fall.
A bold red that is warm, sensual and immediately pleasing to the eye. This color conveys excitement, energy and confidence.
A timeless and sophisticated neutral that suggests reassurance and stability. It is a trusted and grounded color you can go back to time and time again.
This color is called the fall and winter of the pinks we used in spring. It is dustier and exudes warmth and complexity.
This is a rich and elegant, vibrant and sophisticated shade of green. It is brighter and deeper than the more neutral greens.
Continuing the trend of yellow from spring, this shade is spicier and more vibrant.
Sort of a neutral earth tone but with an element of russet orange in its undertones makes this color so beautiful and sophisticated.
An unexpected color for fall which is perfect for an accent color to work back to darks like black, gray and navy. Perfect color for those of us that would like to keep on using pink and purple after spring.
What are your thoughts on these colors and which ones are your favorites?
