Pantone has released the top shades for fall/winter 2015-2016. With earthy tones like Dried Herb and Stormy Weather and bold colors like Cashmere Rose and Cadmium Orange, expect a lot of fun color combinations with contrasting shades of natural and bright.
According to Pantone, designers are “paying homage to progressive moments in American History from the seductive ‘20s to the bohemian hippie and modernists of the ‘60s and ‘70s” while putting together colors that are easy to wear for men and women.
“Juxtaposition of color from opposite sides of the spectrum emphasizes poise and confidence on the runway, ” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “The Fall 2015 palette is rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion; it is the first time we are seeing a truly unisex color palette.”
I love the earthy and bright combo for the upcoming fall and winter season. The contrast between the two creates such great energy. I can’t wait to update my fall wardrobe and add these gorgeous colors!
