As the temperatures start to drop, we’re quick to embrace a wardrobe full of neutrals, from camels and browns to greys and blacks. But this fall, you may want to trade in your trusted noir turtlenecks and tan coats for a bold, bright, and totally unexpected colour trends.
If the fall 2019 runways were any indication, the season’s standard sea of buttery neutrals and monochromatic darks is about to get infused with shades of shocking pink, purple, orange, neon yellow, and fashion’s favourite new colour: pistachio green. Liven up your wardrobe with these fall colour trends that are actually quite groundbreaking.
After seasons of asking what the next millennial pink is, we finally have an answer: pistachio green. Popping up on several fall 2019 runways, the colour quickly began taking over Instagram and the street style scene. The soft hue feels fresh, especially for the fall/winter season, and looks good in both apparel and accessory forms.
Shades of Purple
Purple has long been a polarizing colour among the fashion world, but it’s staging a triumphant comeback in all shades this season. From pastel lilacs to deep violets and all that’s in between, purple hit the fall 2019 runways in dress, coat, sweater, and even hat form. For a softer take on the colour trend, opt for a shade of lavender or lilac.
The great Elle Woods once declared that anyone who said orange was the new pink was “seriously disturbed.” But contrary to her passionate hot take, there’s room for both orange and pink this season. Brands like Carolina Herrera and Staud sent head-to-toe orange looks down the runway, proving the colour trend is better when bolder. And Sies Marjan paired the bright hue with equally bright pink, bringing forth the ultimate unexpected fall colour trend.
We may be millennial pink-ed out, but there’s plenty of room for bright, hot pink in our closets. Liven up your go-to fall colour palette of blacks, browns, and greys with a shade of shocking pink that’ll wake you up on the chilliest of fall days. Take note from Jacquemus and try the look in coat form or go the Chanel route and try it out in a suit.
Surprising us all, neons popped up on countless fall 2019 runways, from New York to Milan to Paris. Whether you go for a jacket, sweater, or dress form, this is one way to stand out in all of winter’s storms.
