Top Color Trends for Fall 2020

By Lindsay Young

Pantone created a Fall/Winter 2020 color palette based on trends seen on NYFW runways; most of which noted versatility and effortlessness for the autumn months and beyond. Rich red hues, muted asphalt grays, and cool blue tones are just some of the predicted colors that you will want to wear this fall season. Even though your A/C may still be on full blast right now; as soon as the temperatures drop, you’ll already be ahead of the curve with fall’s most coveted color trends. 


This unexpected pop of brightness emerged on the runways pre Covid-19 and was seen on looks from designers like MSGM and Ulla Johnson. This unlikely hue for fall/winter will bring a much-needed sense of fun to wardrobes around the world for the remainder of the year. Try it on a long sleeve mini dress or bring the brightness to work in a matching blazer and pant suit.

Bright Orange 

The perfect hue for fall months, bright orange definitely made its mark on the fashion week runways. Designers like Carolina Herrera and Christopher John Rogers made noteworthy statements in their shows with this pop of color. You can either go full-on-fall and wear it from head-to-toe, or if you’re a bit more reserved, wear it as a pop of color to your neutral look. bright

 Fiery Red

You will definitely bring the heat this fall wearing this deep shade. Passionate and fiery red tones were proven to be a favorite of designers like Proenza Schouler and Givenchy during Fall/Winter 2020 NYFW. Try out a fiery red statement suit this fall, or test out the hue with adding it as a base color to any minimal look.

 Electric Blue 

This deep hue has been noted to be fall 2020’s hottest color. Electric blue was revealed during fashion month by designers like Monse and Coach, using the color by layering and in monochromatic looks. Marry the color with white for a fall-approved ensemble, or go for something adventurous do a head-to-toe blue athleisure look.

Asphalt Gray

This shade is normally associated with masculine tailoring, but designers like Marant and Balenciaga took the color and gave it a more elevated and feminine  aspect. Look out for exaggerated shoulders and oversized looks for fall.
