The color of 2021 is here! Pantone has announced that it is, once again, a double color year. Last time we saw two colors as the color of the year was in 2016. So move over Classic Blue! There is a new color, um-shall we say colors, in town!
Pantone feels that yellow and grey, otherwise known as “Illuminating” and “Ultimate Gray,” are colors which evoke a feeling of happiness, fortitude, and hope. Personally, I feel that with yellow, but the grey is throwing me.
In my mind, grey is dull and sad. While I love it as an alternative to black in fashion and interior design, I don’t look to the color grey for inspiration or feelings; to me it is too sad a color. On the other hand, yellow is well-known to evoke happiness and positive energy. I always love yellow as a ray of sunshine and hope; but grey confuses me!
Pantone top ten colors from the New York Fashion Week runways for spring/summer 2021 from top left: Rust / Raspberry Sorbet / Burnt Coral / Illuminating (bright yellow for the rest of us) / Green Ash (I call this mint) / Mint (looks more like apple) / French Blue / Cerulean / Amethyst Orchid /
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.

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!
While not listed as a top ten color, fuschia and bright pink were also spotted frequently on the runways for the fall/winter 2020/21 season at New York Fashion Week. Designers such as Cho Cheng, Ulla Johnson, and Self-Portrait, showed this happy and bright hue in their collections.
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!!
