My 5 Favourite Fall/Winter 2018 Colors

Each season the team at the Pantone Color Institute creates the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report; the P is your easily accessible guide to the season’s most important color trends. Combining classicism with colorful expression, the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report Fall/Winter 2018 features a bold palette of autumnal hues complemented by some more unexpected shades. Before I dive into my favourites here is a quick look at the Classic 5 Colors and the top 10 Color recommendations for the season by Pantone.

Now, let us start with my favourite picks of the Season. 

1. Valiant Poppy: 

Valiant Poppy is a vibrant and scintillating shade of red that made its way into several different fall 2018 fashion trends. There will always be a shade of red that is popular, and Valiant Poppy is the perfectly balanced shade for this season that everyone is loving and so will you. This color upped the ante on the Valentino runway in several pieces, form a strapless flowing mono-colored jumpsuit to a scallop-edge cape (capes are very in for this upcoming season!) over the Valiant Poppy set and a stunning textured trench coat.

2. Red Pear:

Nothing speaks of fall better than wine colors. Shades of red will almost always be popular, but the Red Pear was shown on so many different runways in so many silhouettes that it would be impossible not to find an appropriate piece for your upcoming fall and winter looks.

3. Russet Orange:

Russet Orange is one of the brightest Pantone fall 2018 colors mimicking the fallen leaves. The color will be excellent on all fabrics and even more interesting as a nail lacquer. With just a light touch of imagination, millions of options are available and muted only the slightest bit.

4. Martini Olive:

Muted and versatile, this olive green shade comes as one of the most wearable fall/ winter 2018-2019 color trends. You can wear it alone or in combination with most of the colors on this list, and the trendy outcome is guaranteed! Many runway shows paid tribute to this rich green fall 2018 color, using it for their trench coats, blazers, dresses or as small accent details that elevated the looks.

5. Meerkat:

Meerkat is the dusky, warm, burnished medium-hued brown that can be the most requested shade from the Pantone fall 2018 color trends. This is the perfect color to work with multiple finishes and textures.


Have fun adding new colors to your wardrobe.
