Fall & Winter Color Trends for 2013
As the months begin to grow colder, color trends for this fall and winter are definitely inviting. Pantone announced the new palette and it is sure to bring in a few favorites. The colors announced include variations of green, a darker teal, deep purple, burgundy red, and an eye-popping burnt orange. The neutral colors chosen are coffee brown and grey.
I’ve taken my top 3 favorites from this color collection to showcase how to incorporate these styles in your wardrobe this season. Whether it is cold, dark, or just plain gloomy outside, these colors will liven up your look.
- Burgundy – The color infamously associated with wine is a beautiful blend of vibrancy and cool undertones. This color is perfect for staple pieces that can be worn everyday while making a bold statement of professionalism. Women can choose a sharp blazer or pencil skirt to pair with a cream-based blouse. For men, a wool top coat will liven up your wardrobe or even a twill pant for the casual weekend visits with your friends. Accessorizing with golden accented items allow the deep red color to become the main focus for your look.
- Teal – I absolutely adore this color for the simple fact that it can be worn with every neutral color. This jewel tone, when brilliantly paired with any neutral, will re-vamp an understated wardrobe. For women, you can find a cozy sweater to warm up in or perk up any outfit with teal accessories such as a handbag or necklace. Men will likely choose a classic button up shirt or find a new silk tie for that grey suit worn to the office every day.
- Coffee – Everyones favorite morning treat is now becoming our favorite neutral to wear this season. The classic coffee-colored item is a must have in your closet. Women can find a comfortable, yet fashionable cropped jacket to pair with their favorite denim casual look. For men, you can wear your favorite flannel underneath the wool, coffee sweater.
Whether rushing to work during the week or enjoying your weekend out on the town, these colors are a refreshing boost to our current style. These color trends will cause quite a buzz and may just stick around in the warmer seasons to follow.
