Color trends for fall 2019 from New York Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week fall 2019 is underway! We are slightly more than half-way through the week as I write this. The fall/winter 2019/20 runways are offering us new trends to look forward to in the next cold weather season. Of course, we are still trying to finish THIS cold weather season! I think everyone around the country can agree-we have had quite the cold weather season this year! Brrr!

Speaking of fashion trends, my favorite trends to follow are color trends. When you know the color trends of an upcoming season ahead of time, it helps you to shop your closet for that season, and see which colors you need to add to your wardrobe in order to create the perfect fall color palette. Love that!

Pantone has released their top twelve colors used by designers for their fall 2019 collections in New York. In addition to the top twelve colors, the top four neutral colors are pushing the envelope as being classified as, shall we say, “neutrals.”

Brown is the new black, and orange tones are the new shades of pink. This upcoming fall 2019 season, look for a 1970’s color palette on modern silhouettes. Designers took inspiration from the 1940’s, through to the new millennium, while using a brown/orange/red/white/blue mix of colors in medium-dark hues for the fall season.

Basic black, which is just as chic as ever, was all over the runway. But, alternate neutral hues such as vanilla, light grey, and deep navy, competed with everyone’s go-to wardrobe color (a-hem, black); adding a fresh breath of color into our fall closets. Winter white is a thing! Hope you weren’t still clinging to that silly “can’t wear white after labor day” thing.

Pantone color of the year 2019 Living Coral

Drumroll please . . . the color of 2019 has arrived! The new color we all will covet in the new year is “Living Coral!” On Thursday, December 6, 2018 Pantone announced the new color of the year for 2019. The newest color in fashion and interior design is Living Coral.

Living Coral was one of the top 12 colors for the spring/summer 2019 on the New York Fashion Week runways last September. So, it is no surprise that one of the top 12 colors from the spring 2019 runways has become the ultimate color of the year for all four seasons in 2019.

Unlike the color of 2018 which was a purple that transcended seasons, Living Coral is a very spring/summer hue. It is much more playful and spirited than the colors of the year we have seen lately. This color is engaging, and draws you in.

According to Pantone, we will see Living Coral used for eyes, cheeks, hair and nails in the coming year. (photo courtesy of Pantone)

Living Coral is a color found in nature. It symbolizes the need to preserve the earth. If you think about coral, it is a color seen in sunsets, oceans, and nature in general. In the ocean, it is a color that protects other colors; coral reefs are home to many vividly colored sea creatures. This is a warm, soft orange with golden undertones, which according to Pantone, “. . . energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”

When it comes to fashion, Living Coral can be seen as a vintage hue being revived. Although versions of coral began popping up on the 2016, 2017, and 2018 runways, it really took center in fashion during the 1960’s and 1980’s. For 2019, we are seeing it in both women and men’s fashions as it returns to center stage. This color is being used as the focal point of a design, as well as accent hue in accessories. It’s everywhere!

I believe we will see it more in the spring, summer, and resort collections, then fall and winter; although it has been spotted on cold weather runways already. I find it very unexpected for cold weather fashion, so it will be fun to see how the color progresses throughout the year in fashion. Although, Living Coral would pair nicely in the fall and winter with chocolate brown or dark beige. It should be fun to see if designers use it on the fall/winter 2019/20 runways coming up in February 2019!

What do you think of Living Coral for 2019? Is this a color you see yourself wearing or decorating your home with? You can learn more at Pantone.com.
