A new year of fashion bring exciting new trends such as what length skirt designers favored, the materials they used, and the shapes they created. There is also another very important consideration for the season – and that’s what colors are in the forecast for Fall 2018.
Here’s a full rundown of all fall 2018 colors and casting hues used in the most recent runway shows which are most stylish and flattering for Any skin tone.
Some shades were, as you would expect, very autumnal, such as russet browns, bold burgundy, and goddess green. But others came as a surprise, such as bright blues and oranges and pinks. For other designers, the unexpected came not in the colors themselves, but in the combination of shades that were placed together.
Color trends for Fall 2018
The Pantone Color Institute also rounded up the main colors used on the runway shows, and you see many of these featured by all the major fashion houses.
1. Violet, Lets Talk About it!
Violet was one of the hues of the summer, and it’s still hanging around for fall and winter. During the warmer months, it was all about pastel hues and, indeed, there were still lots of those on the runways for fall, as the weather turns colder, the hue has been paired well with richer hues of deep plum. Also seems to be alot of Velvet and Satin incorporated into the mix!
Alberta Ferretti paired his purples with burgundy, showing just how stylish purple could look teamed with burgundy boots.
Rich Teal is always beautiful paired with whites and creams for summer. And, designers proved it is equally stunning for fall 2018 by giving the shade a darker, more matt with velvet and using this sea-green shade along with other autumnal shades such as wine, mustard yellow and neutrals.
3. Pink Please
Pink is one of those colors which is severely “understated”! Taking off this season with a bang-on-trend for a number of seasons. We’ve seen all shades of this hue from the palest pastel to deep fuschia. This time around, pale pinks were still on display, but THE pink of fall 2018 was a shade the color experts at Pantone have called Pink Peacock.
I love Oscar de la Renta’s approach on the trend; teaming fuschia pants with a crisp white shirt in a way which was not only on trend but also very sophisticated. Many designers chose to go with pink teamed with the next color! Personally, I love to pair Pink with ruby red. Agin, seeing alot of sheer and satin with these blends!
4. Poppy Red
Another trend which has crossed over from summer to fall is the combination of red and pink. But designers also chose to dress their models top-to-toe in bright, poppy red. There were stunning coats adorned with brooches from Oscar de la Renta, who also reveled his crush for red teamed with burgundy, while featuring some flowing orangey red dresses paired with red accessories.
5. Burgundy, Ok Wine a little
Designers Lured us in with a showcase more favorable to the subtle shade of burgundy. Featuring on full-length coats from Roksanda , sexy dresses from Bottega Veneta and Givenchy, and tailoring from Alexander McQueen, there are also some flawless burgundy boots among the 1 major shoe trends for fall 2018.
6. Spiced yellow
Yellow has been a feature on the runways for the past couple of seasons, and it’s showing no signs of going anywhere soon! This time around, it’s a rich spicy, mustardy shade that pairs well with other hues in the fall 2018 autumnal palette. I, in particular, love the a mix of pinks and reds paired with this shade of yellow. I also must say that this Velvet/Satin theme is really giving me vibes!
7. Nebulas blue
While navy blue is a more traditional choice for fall and winter, and occasionally showcased by many big-name fashion houses, one of biggest color surprise for fall 2018 was a brighter blue. Nebulas blue was teamed with equally bright yellow by Roksanda , with complementary shades of blue by Tibi and in full-length coats suitable to everyday wear!
8. All Black
Of course, black is never out of style and remains a staple in my closet for many reason, but this Fall, it is definitely on-trend, with swathes of black on just about every catwalk. Alberta Ferretti went for draped black gowns, while Bottega Veneta upped the sex appeal with lace evening gowns.
5. Navy Baby
A preferred neutral which is perfect for any season. Navy is the complimentry alternative to black for colder months. Roksanda used the hue for floor-length gowns, while Tibi showcased casual two-pieces and Lebanese designer Rabih Kayrouz chose navy for tailored suits and outer wear. Velvet and lace add appeal to the designs.
