10 Colors for Fall From New York Fashion Week

Every season the color experts at Pantone evaluate the shades shown by fashion designers in their collections at New York Fashion Week, putting together a comprehensive palette. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said this year’s fall collection leans to warmth and comfort, with standout shades include a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime, and a bright Marina blue.

Colors from fashion often make their way to the home. Here’s a list of colors to look for when enhancing your décor and the energy they will bring to your home.

  • Grenadine. A powerful, evocative, dynamic red, Grenadine is a confident and self-assured attention-getter.
  • Tawny Port. Taking the Red family to new depths, Tawny Port is elegant, sophisticated, and tasteful.
  • Ballet Slipper. Descended from the Red family but with a softer touch, Ballet Slipper is always flattering and reminiscent of the rosy glow of health.
  • Butterum. This snug, warming, and toasty shade is evocative of drinking a glass of Butterum by a roaring fire on a cool autumn evening.
  • Navy Peony. A mainstay for the season for both palettes, Navy Peony is a dependable and an anchoring shade. Solid and stable, the hue takes some of the load off of black as a go-to neutral.
  • Neutral Gray. The standard bearer of all neutrals, Neutral Gray shares the anchoring role with Navy Peony in this palette. It can be used as an accent or a head-to-toe statement shade.
  • Shaded Spruce. This is a green you might see in the forest – sheltering and protective as evergreen trees.
  • Golden Lime. Earthy tones with a twist, the golden undertones of Golden Lime makes this yellow-green shade a refreshing complement to fall classics.
  • Marina. Cool with an enhanced vitality, Marina is the only truly cool color in the fall palette that brings with it freshness and brightness.
  • Autumn Maple. A quintessential autumn color, Autumn Maple is tawny and russet, introducing warmth into the palette.
