>For editors, most of our trend hunting from Fashion Month is done the old-fashioned way: Poring over every look that we see on the runway in motion, in great detail, and from every angle. But we’re happy to let someone else do the heavy lifting from time to time, which is why we look forward to Pantone’s own color predictions, as sourced from the newest collections. And thanks to the team’s expertise, we know exactly which hues will be huge come fall 2017.
In shifting through New York Fashion Week, specifically, the color experts at Pantone have officially named 10 trending shades that we’ll be sure to see in spades in six months. “The color palette for Fall 2017 leans more to warmth,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, in the report. This speaks to the popularity of Grenadine, Autumn Maple, Butterum, Shaded Spruce, and Tawny Port, all which instantly give off cozy fall vibes. Meanwhile, alternative neutrals such as Ballet Slipper, Navy Peony, and Neutral Gray round out the 10 color trends, along with subdued accents via Golden Lime and a calm Marina blue.
