Trendy Colors Fall Winter 2015/2016

The palette of the upcoming fall/winter season consists of absolutely universal colors. These shades are perfectly combined with each other in any variations and equally suitable for both men and women. It's generally amazing feature of fashion trends of recent seasons: to equate people, in the good sense of the word.

I was very surprised to know that the trendy colors palette is actually the first unisex palette. And for the first time Pantone Institute has created a single list for both genders. Yes, comfort shades and cuts are succesfully adopted by men's collections from women's and vice versa. The main idea is still the same: tranquility and comfort in the days of the crazy rush modernity.

Usual for the FW season gray and natural shades are perfectly combined with a bright and warm/sunny hues. This allows you to create beautiful color combinations that will be pleasing for a sight, even in dank days without tiring eyes. This is also a feature of recent seasons - really bright colors are carefully avoided, giving a way for more soft pastel and dusty shades. Fall and Winter will replace bright and vibrant Trendy Spring/Summer colors Tangerine and Strawberry Ice with more soft and elegant Cadmium Orange and Cashmere Rose.

I personally love metallic grayish shades and khaki ♥ This is all about my big love to futuristic and military styles ♥

  • Desert Sage
  • Dried Herb
  • Stormy Weather

An olive green shade once thought of as strictly safari or military, Dried Herb  has been elevated into a color we now perceive as sophisticated and chic. Closely related to nature, Dried Herb  is an organic shade redolent of nature's earthy fragrances.

A cool and soothing greenish gray, Desert Sage is the ideal neutral. Timeless and unobtrusive yet at the same time stylishly powerful enough to make an impactful statement on its own, Desert Sage speaks to this feeling of naturally inspired colors that remind us of things that are real and not invented.

Reminiscent of the sky on a gray, overcast day, Stormy Weather is dependable, cool and above all, constant. Implying quality and luxury, Stormy Weather is a powerful blue gray shade that is strong, protective and enduring.

  • Biscay Bay
  • Marsala
  • Oak Buff

Just as the sun comes out after stormy weather to bring us cheer and a glimmer of hope, Oak Buff is a mellow, comforting and warming shade that brings good feelings. Another one of nature's illustrious shades, the golden yellow Oak Buff acts to nurture and comfort.

Interesting on its own and a wonderful contrast for other hues, Marsala is a winey red-brown that adds finesse and savoir faire. Rich and robust, Marsala incorporates the warmth and richness of a tastefully fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots point to a sophisticated, natural earthiness.

A lush and elegant teal, Biscay Bay splashes up against more heated tones with its cool touch. Combining the serene qualities of blue with the invigorating aspects of green, the cool and confident Biscay Bayy inspires thoughts of soothing, tropical waters, taking us to a place that is pleasant and inviting.

  • Amethyst Orchid
  • Cadmium Orange
  • Cashmere Rose
  • Reflecting Pond

Thoughtful, contemplative and composed, Reflecting Pond is a cooling blue with a lot of depth. Conveying a message of credibility, Reflecting Pond is a serious shade that speaks to our need for stability and security.

A nod to the '60s and '70s, Cadmium Orange evokes a sentiment of optimism, fun and fantasy. Both playful and sophisticated in its appeal, Cadmium Orange is a warm, welcoming and subtly dramatic orange shade that is striking enough to stand on its own or act as a bold contrast.

A play on the '60s with a twist of today, Cashmere Rose is a tactile and soft pink hue that renders exactly what it promises. Cultivated in its richness, Cashmere Rose is a gentle and composed pink that is more upscale than downtown.

Indicative of our affection for color, Amethyst Orchid is the jewel in the crown. Intriguing, vibrant and somewhat sensual, the enigmatic Amethyst Orchid is an extraordinary hue that is unique, bold, creative and exciting.
