Fall is breaking a lot of rules this year when compared to last year’s color trends. Pantone released their color predictions earlier this year and greens are featured heavily from the number one color, Emerald Green to the more yellow-based Linden green. Aside from the greens, Pantone also predicts a blue shade reminscent of the beautiful sea air, a deep red, and vivacious pink. According to the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, “The fall 2013 palette allows for that versatility and experimentation.”
The color forecasting company, Pantone breaks down the many moods of the 2013 fall/winter season.
Emerald- It’s still the color of the year so it continues to bring luxury and elegance to fall clothing.
Mykonos Blue- It’s a bold, meditative blue, for a classic and relaxed fall look. Other blue variations such as the universally flattering cobalt blue continues its popularity.
Linden Green- A lighter green shade that brightens deeper shades of fall. Pair this color with a darker hue.
Acai- Adds mystery and richness to the palette and can create powerful fall combinations when paired with other colors.
Samba- An expressive deep red color for a dramatic fall look.
Koi- A decorative pumpkin shade with dazzling and shimmering qualities.
Deep Lichen Green- A lush, moss shade of green, for a dynamic juxtaposition that captures both ends of the seasonal spectrum.
Vivacious- A wildly deep fuschia that adds an ebullient sensuality to the fall palette. We’ll also see lighter shades of pink in fall collections. Who says you can’t wear pink in the fall?
Turbulence- A dark mercurial gray that provides a more interesting alternative to black basics.
Carafe- A rich, glamorous brown that’s also a sophisticated alternative to black basics.
