September 03, 2015

Fall is peeking around the corner, and that means it’s time to start thinking about autumn and changing up your wardrobe a bit.

So what’s on the lookout as far as color trends for fall 2015? It’s going to be a colorful, nature-inspired season, with a good mix of traditional autumn neutrals like gray and tan, mixed in with sprightly hues like lavender and wine red. Here’s the color forecast for the hottest colors of autumn 2015.

2015 Pantone Autumn Color Forecast

Biscay Bay

Biscay Bay - Pantone Fall 2015

This sophisticated, slightly muted teal green color evokes ocean voyages and calm bays. It’s named after the Bay of Biscay and is located off the Southwestern coast of France and off the Northern Spain coast. A rugged spot prone to rough waters, it’s known for being a dangerous spot for sailors. The color Biscay Bay combines green and blue to a pleasant coolness that offsets many of the season’s earthier tones.

Desert Sage

Desert Sage - 2015 Fall Color Pantone

This earthy, gray-green color mixes well with the season’s other hues and is one of the season’s emerging “new neutrals.” Named after a perennial bush in Colorado, this color evokes cool autumn days and a walk through the woods with crunchy autumn leaves underfoot.

Stormy Weather

This luxurious overcast-gray adds depth and coolness to any outfit. It is a powerful, intelligent color with soothing cool undertones and a strong presence.

Cadmium Orange
