The New York Fashion Week runways are underway in the digital world, and they are bringing me life! Spring 2021 is all about renewal, hope, and uplifting COLORS! Ooooohh I love this color palette. It’s so happy! I love happy!

If you remove red from a rainbow, the spring/summer 2021 color palette is a rainbow of fabulousness. It celebrates simple, primary hues, as well as happy variations. I love every color; and cannot pick a favorite. These are beautiful hues, and perfect for our mental health right now-no joke! We need uplifting hues right now, don’t you agree?

Here is the color interpretation direct from Pantone: ““Offering a range of shades illustrative of nature, colors for Spring/Summer 2021 underscores our desire for flexible color that works year-round. Infused with a genuine authenticity that continues to be increasingly important, colors for Spring/Summer 2021 combine a level of comfort and relaxation with sparks of energy that encourage and uplift our moods,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.”

When moving last seasons’ spring and summer clothing to the back of your closet, be sure to keep everything in these colors for next season. You will want to be able to re-wear everything you own in these beautiful hues. You can even rock them this season if you are like me, and enjoy getting a jump on the trends. Scroll down to see a few fabulous fall items I found in colors which are close to the spring 2021 hues pictures above. Love!

Of course, we always need a few neutral hues to balance out seasonal colors. There are five fabulous neutral colors for spring 2021 which are rocking our world from NYFW. Black is the new black, so don’t worry! If you prefer grey, you can rock that too! If black and grey are too harsh or depressing, you can uplift your mood by pairing your favorite colors with Willow, Marigold, and/or Buttercream. I am in love with Buttercream! Ultimate Grey and Buttercream are my favorite neutral hues for spring 2021, of course, I always love black; or shall I say, “Inkwell.”

New York Fashion Week color trends for fall 2020

Cho Cheng fall/winter 2020/21 New York Fashion Week

Pantone has released the top ten colors, and top four neutral hues, for the fall/winter 2020/21 season straight from the runways of New York! They are vivid, happy, and uplifting. Three cheers for a bright fall season!

The fall/winter 2020/21 season is returning to simplicity. As trends move towards a more sustainable fashion industry, and consumers look to a more minimalist lifestyle, the color trends for the fall season have moved towards simple, common hues which you could easily find in the least expensive crayon box.

While brighter hues may not instantly scream “minimal” to you, they are being simplistic through their uncomplicated pigmentation, and easy-to-identify shades. This is a clean, and easy, color palette to incorporate into any wardrobe. You may even find you already own many of these colors! Love that!

Without further ado, here are a few examples of the top colors on the runways of New York! I included the bright pink, because I kind-of love it!!

Color of the year 2020 Classic Blue

The color of the year 2020 has been announced, and I am here for it! Blue is my favorite color. I love the oceanic, peaceful vibe which blue evokes. I love how it looks in interiors, on my car, and on my clothing. When Pantone announced Classic Blue as the Color of the Year 2020 last week, I was thrilled! My favorite color gets a year to shine! Yay!

2020 is the dawn of a new decade. With a new decade, comes a sense of renewal filled with expectations, and a slight fear of the uknown. While that fear of the unknown isn’t as pronounced as it was when we went from 1999 to 2000, there is still a sense of wonderment as we move into a new decade. Since we are all filled with anticipation of a new decade, and a sense of renewal, we are all drawn towards colors which bring calm, grounding vibes. This is why Pantone’s Classic Blue has been crowned the Color of the Year 2020 for all aspects of our lives.

Classic Blue is a dark blue hue which is close to navy, but not quite navy. It’s what the sky looks like right after the sun goes down, and it is the color of the deep blue sea. It is a hue found in nature, and it is a timeless color when it comes to clothing, accessories, interior design, and more.

My Classic Blue mood board for 2020. I love mixing shades of blue, so oceanic hues grounded in Classic Blue are inspiring me right now. 

As we move towards sustainability as a planet, we are looking towards more sustainable ways to manufacture clothing, as well as reduce the amount we are purchasing. Classic Blue is a color which uses dye from nature. It is made from Indigo, making it a plant based color. This helps to further make Classic Blue relevant as we move into a new decade, and time period, where protecting our environment becomes an increasingly important way of life.

Below are color combinations we expect to see surrounded by Classic Blue in the new year.
