Fall Trends and Colors <br>Are You Ready?!

Although we are still enjoying beautiful, summer-like weather here in California, fall is just around the corner (less than 30 days!). We are surrounded by fall fashion in stores and in print. It’s not too early to plan how you want to fill in your personal existing collection with some of what’s new this fall.

Have fun, and  keep your look fresh by adding a piece (or two or three) from the fall-winter color palette and some of the fall trends.

The fall-winter color palette, per the Pantone Fashion Color Report, includes such a variety that almost everyone will find colors already in their closet that work with the rich palette – that makes it easy to add a few fun pieces for an update. Take a look at the colors we’ll be seeing (and wearing) this fall and winter (if you want to explore Pantone’s Color Report, click on the image):

About this season’s color palette, Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, says:

“The desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism have inspired a Fall 2016 color palette that is led by the Blue family.

“Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections. Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades.

“Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.”

Wow! While I am not a fan of purples, I don’t know if I can resist adding something this season in a color called “Bodacious”!

Keep in mind some of the trends that are hot (or cool!) for fall and winter when you’re on the lookout for a fun seasonal color to add to your closet. Check out some of the fall-winter trends below.

Don’t be put off by the bare midriff or short skirt in the photos. The idea is to use these models’ looks to spark your imagination and creativity. You can get ideas from these photos (or others on the web or in magazines). Then interpret the look in a way that feels like you.
