These Will Be the 5 Biggest Color Trends of Fall/Winter 2019

I know what you’re thinking. How can we possibly think of fall when summer just arrived? But as with everything in fashion, we’re always on the pulse of what’s new and what’s to come. Trust us; there is plenty of sartorial goodness to look forward to by the time autumn arrives. Today, we’re taking a deep dive into the trending colors that will be everywhere come September. Luckily, you can get your hands on some of these chic hues right now if you're eager to stay ahead of the curve.

From New York, London, Milan, and Paris, the F/W 19 runways have spoken: Aside from the usual fall suspects we can never get enough of (think camel and merlot), expect to see some surprising colors in the mix like vibrant orange and hot pink (even popular worn together!) and every shade of purple and pistachio.

Scroll below to see the biggest colors we’re predicting will be dominating our feeds this fall.

50 Shades of Purple

The standout hue on the F/W 19 runways was undoubtedly purple. Whether it was the soft tint of lavender at Nanushka, Tom Ford, and Tibi or saturated grape shades at Kate Spade, Michael Kors, and Sally LaPointe, practically every designer had a touch of purple in their collection.

Head-to-Toe Pistachio

Shades of minty green and sage have already been making their mark this spring and summer, but expect to see the color blow up by the time fall rolls around. Designers showed off head-to-toe pistachio looks, which felt modern and refreshing.

Tiger Orange

Bright-and-bold hues for fall and winter? You bet. Vibrant orange was seen in abundance on the fall runways, paired with equally bright pink (see below), as well as subdued neutrals. It's a surprisingly flattering color on every skin tone. For a statement look, opt for tailored separates worn with a neutral tee.

Extroverted Pink

From fearless hot pink to slightly cooler tones, the vivacious statement hue adds a head-turning touch to any outfit. Opt for a vibrant pink slip skirt to add oomph to your outfit or a pretty ruffle blouse to wear with your jeans.

Shop the color trend:

Vanilla Custard

Every shade of beige is still all the rage for fall and winter 2019. On the runways, we were particularly drawn to a sophisticated, soft white-toned beige, which Pantone has named Vanilla Custard. Wear the hue in loose and languid layers.
