The year 2012 is nearing its end and if you’re the fashion conscious type of person, you may want to know now what colors are in style this last quarter period. From the bright colors of summer and spring, it’s time to tone down on hues this fall and winter.
The Pantone Color Institute (PCI) which surveyed the designs of the New York Fashion Week said the trend caters to the practical side of consumers. It’s all about mixing the neutrals with bold colors, stressed PCI executive director Leatrice Eiseman. The yellow-green hue known as bright chartreuse is one of fall’s top colors which makes for a great accent to every color in the palette.
Tangerine is still very much in fashion and can be combined with pink flambe. This mix can be used to create a retro style, if you will.
To those who love the green shade, go for the ultramarine green considered to be a deeper shade of the blue-green.
Purple lovers can opt for the toned down rhapsody. This color, according to the fashion experts, promotes comfort and serenity because of its lighter tone.
Yellow lovers should use the mellow version known as honey gold. This can be paired with the Olympian blue.
If you want to stay away from the pure black color, your best option is to go for the French roast. This is considered to be a sophisticated hue ideal for the fall season.
Those who prefer gray, there’s a cooler version now called Titanium. This can go together with the Rose smoke shade which is also best paired with the grayed down purple Rhapsody.
