It's Official: Pantone Has Chosen The Top 10 Colors For Fall
If you’re a fashion-forward kind of person like me, then you’re always aware of what’s hip and hot for the coming seasons. That’s why when Pantone released their Top 10 Colors for Fall 2016, I had already put aside clothes in those shades, because I want to be ahead of the curve. And obviously I’m very fashionable, because I only wear T-shirts and whatever shorts will cover my knees without making me look like I’m wearing JNCOs.
OK, so obviously I’m not a fashionista. But Pantone has people that are, and they’ve put everything together in anticipation of what we’ll see on the runways in coming months. Per WWD:
Building on the soothing colors that surfaced in the spring Pantone palette, the fall forecast also leans toward more muted ones that are meant to create a transporting and transformative canvas, according to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
But one of the more interesting reasons why these particular colors were picked comes down to stress:
Eiseman explained, “With all the angst that’s out there in the ether and in the world around us, there is a need for more calming colors.”
