Pantone’s Top Colors for Fall

trend alert Pantone Colors

Of course we all know that emerald is THE color of fall, but now Pantone has announced that lichen is going to be HUUUUUUUUGE as well. Not sure how I feel about that. I had a lot moss-colored suits back in the monochromatic madness of the ’90s, when we were all trying to look like Regis Philbin on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. Remember that? Blergh. I’m not ready to go back. Pantone Color Institute’s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman said, “If you ever walked in the forest or the woods in the fall when the leaves have fallen, there is such a gorgeous mélange of color. This palette reflects those wonderful fall colors but at the same time there are colors that bring a certain sturdiness and structure.” (Says Miranda Priestly: “Forest shades for fall? Groundbreaking.”) Also rounding out the list is Açai (a deep purple), Mykonos Blue (a shade reminiscent of the sea near the Greek island), Turbulence (a deep slate gray), Samba (a fiery red), Carafe (a brown that falls somewhere between coffee and chocolate), Koi (a bold orange the same color as the fish), and Vivacious (think GLAMOUR pink!).
