Summer brought with it so many fashionable and fancy plus size trends, with different colors and lots of prints and patterns, and it seems it can be hard to top that, but fall is almost here and does not lag behind when talking about cute trends and finds! Each season brings new colors, so now it’s time to clean and update your wardrobe with fall items and with it, the must-have colors for the season. Autumn is my favorite because it’s all about layering and gives you the option to match different colors and tones. Thanks to Pantone, we made a list of our 10 favorite must-have colors to wear this season.
Fun fact, the Pantone team analyzes the colors used by the designers in New York Fashion Week and creates the color report for every season. This year, for the first time, they did a color report for London as well. I’m so excited we have more options of colors to choose for this season.
There is a commonality between the colors we are seeing on the runway in New York and London. However, individuality is evident and we are seeing a distinct difference between the shows in the two cities in the way these same colors are being combined. – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
