5 Fall Colors to Wear This Autumn

Fall colors are bright, warm, and cool this year.

Fall is creeping up on us, you guys! And that means you’ll soon begin to wear different colors… fall colors. And while the cooler months used to mean “it’s time to start dressing drab,” that’s not so this year. Fall 2015 is filled with all sorts of beautiful hues to make you feel cozy and stylish.

According to Pantone, the color trend movers and shakers, 2015’s autumns colors are a blend of cool, muted greens and blues, and a few warm and flirty hues.

Here are some of the colors we’re particularly smitten with:

Fall colors, dried herb

Dried Herb

Bubbly and Bean recently posted a great article on everything “dried herb,” Pantone’s muted green hue. This is a great summer-to-fall transition color because it’s earthy enough to elicit thoughts of falling leaves, and light enough to wear before the new season begins. For example, the above bag from Free People would look awesome with most any late summer outfit.

Fall colors, oak buff

Oak Buff

This pullover brightly exhibits that fall colors don’t always have to be dull. Pantone’s Oak Buff is soft and rich. The above pullover from Free People shows how this golden yellow hue can add warmth to any autumn outfit.

Fall colors, rose

Cashmere Rose

This color kind of surprised me because when you think about fall colors, you typically don’t think pink. But Pantone’s Cashmere Rose really works well when paired with one of the other, typical colors listed in its autumn colors spread. The above jacket is a perfect example of how you can wear this color throughout fall.

Fall colors, Marsala


This rich, red/brown hue has been everywhere this year, so, naturally it will be everywhere this fall. This dress shows just how solid and eye-catching this hue can be on its own.

Fall colors, blue/green

Biscay Bay

This green/blue hue pairs well with any of the above colors, or looks stunning on its own. While this color is cool, it looks incredibly elegant and stunning against changing leaves.
