Every year, Pantone releases popular colors for each season. This fall, it has highlighted the following colors as the most popular:
PANTONE 17-1558 Grenadine: A powerful, evocative, dynamic red, Grenadine is a confident and self-assured attention-getter.
PANTONE 19-1725 Tawny Port: Taking the red family to new depths, Tawny Port is elegant, sophisticated, and tasteful.
PANTONE 13-2808 Ballet Slipper: Descended from the red family but with a softer touch, Ballet Slipper is always flattering and reminiscent of the rosy glow of health.
PANTONE 16-1341 Butterum: This snug, warming, and toasty shade is evocative of drinking a glass of Butterrum by a roaring fire on a cool autumn evening.
PANTONE 19-4029 Navy Peony: A mainstay for the season for both palettes, Navy Peony is a dependable and an anchoring shade. Solid and stable, the hue takes some of the load off of black as a go-to neutral.
PANTONE 17-4402 Neutral Gray: The standard bearer of all neutrals, Neutral Gray shares the anchoring role with Navy Peony in this palette. It can be used as an accent or a head-to-toe statement shade.
PANTONE 19-4524 Shaded Spruce: This is a green you might see in the forest—sheltering and protective as evergreen trees.
PANTONE 16-0543 Golden Lime: Earthy tones with a twist, the golden undertones of Golden Lime make this yellow-green shade a refreshing complement to fall classics.
PANTONE 17-4041 Marina: Cool with an enhanced vitality, Marina is the only truly cool color in the fall palette that brings with it freshness and brightness.
PANTONE 17-1145 Autumn Maple: A quintessential autumn color, Autumn Maple is tawny and russet, introducing warmth into the palette.
