As the days get longer, the weather is getting colder. The season is changing, and so should your wardrobe! Fall is officially here, and the Pantone color scheme has released this fall’s fashion color report.

According to the Pantone Fashion Institute, the Color Palette for New York has been showing a lot of diversity, but with one common similarity; warmth. The top ten colors include spectrum of: Grenadine (pinky-red), Tawny Port (dark burgundy), Ballet Slipper (light pink), Butterum (dark tan), Navy Peony (navy blue), Neutral Gray, Shaded Spruce (turquoise), Golden Lime, Marina (sky blue), Autumn Maple (burnt orange).

Pantone also stated, “While comforting, enveloping colors and ease are crucial to the seasonal feeling, standout shades include a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime, and a bright Marina blue. These hues add a striking touch when paired with the classic autumnal shades of Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Butterum and Tawny Port.”

Even though these colors have been reported for New York, the Pantone Fashion Institute is representing the U.S. because they only do one for the U.S., and starting this season, added London. The realm of 

these colors will no doubt be contributed to stores all around.

Kirsten Zimmerman, CHS senior, has always stayed with the trends of fall clothing. This season, she is sporting her colors with her favorite “Autumn Maple” turtleneck sweater. She paired it with her loved “Tawny Port” jeans and her “Butterum” oxford shoes.

After presenting this, Zimmerman said, “I think out of all the colors, my favorite color from the Pantone color palette is Grenadine. Fall makes it so much easier to incorporate these colors.”
