Well, the color trends for fall/winter 2022/2023 are all over the place! Normally when the NYFW color trends come out, we have some sort of theme, vibe, and/or order to the top ten colors and top five neutral hues. Not this season!
Designers seem divided between traditional autumn hues, and bright summer shades. There is even a spring pink thrown into the mix. The neutrals evoke a resort vibe mixed with dark spring. According to Pantone, this color palette is a mix which represents rest and relaxation, as well as “non-conforming exuberant expression.” Well, I agree with that last part!
Bright colors are popular for the spring/summer 2022 seasons. So, they will be a great transition in early fall when temperatures are still warm. Instead of purchasing transitional pieces, we can layer up our summer wardrobe! Love that!
On the other hand, I have to wonder if we will be ready for a new color palette by the end of summer. If we rock brights during the spring and summer months, will we still crave them in the fall? I guess only time will tell. Otherwise, I have to say, I am excited about the autumn hues, and the darker colors from this palette. While I love brights, I plan to wear them a lot this spring and summer, so we shall see how I feel in August and September! What do you think?
A few bright hues to invest in now:
