There are a few stylish tricks to make any outfit look inherently high-end. The simplest? Reverting to neutrals like black, white, and beige. These versatile hues simply always look polished and elevated. And luckily, fall is traditionally the key season to live in these cold weather–appropriate colors. But contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to stick to the basic hues for a chic vibe.
In fact, thanks to the F/W 19 runways, we basically saw an entire spectrum of forward, rich colors that could easily give any neutral hue a run for their money. Yes, we’re talking gorgeous shades of purple, vibrant pink, and, well, everything else in the rainbow. Basically, if you want to enhance your autumn vibe (and look conceivably expensive), these fall color trends will do the trick.
Ahead, we rounded up the top hues of the season with styling inspiration both from the runways and the streets. (Because we get it, some bold colors can seem intimidating.) And naturally, we also shopped out the best corresponding pieces out there to infuse that luxurious feel into your fall wardrobe.
Cropping up in a range of collections—including Sally LaPointe, Jim Sander, and Marc Jacobs—this soft green hue brings that subtle glamour that will make anything you’re wearing high-end. While head-to-toe pistachio ruled the runways, try incorporating it into your accessories or separates offering as a starter.
The star color trend on the F/W 19 runways was undoubtedly purple. And we’re talking purple of all shades like deep violets at Tom Ford and light lavender at Tibi. Incorporate a dose of this unexpected fall hue into your outfit game and you’ll look like the most in-the-know person in the room.

Style tip: Don't be afraid to test out a monochromatic purple look, but try a contrasting boot style to break up the silhouette.
The next It color trend just so happens to be purple’s dear friend. Yes, we’re talking about bright pink. As the answer to the next wave of millennial pink, this shocking color (seen in collections from Jacquemus to Chanel) can either be worn head-to-toe or paired with your go-to black or camel staples to bring that wow factor.
Yellow is one of those hues that’s always been somewhat controversial as it’s seemingly not the easiest to pull off. But as designers like Self-Portrait and Emilia Wickstead proved, as well as a slew of style setters throughout Fashion Month, the sumptuousness color injects a level of happiness into any outfit, which will inherently make you feel positive and unstoppable.
While more muted than the colors mentioned previously, quiet blue shades also made waves on the runways of designers like Marc Jacobs and Rejina Pyo. The crisp, luxe color is in-between blue and gray and is a forward update to some of the other basic naturals you may wear on repeat.
