5 Colors Fall Fashion Is Going To Revolve Around

Fall neutrals may now be a thing of the past. We traditionally see browns, blacks, and whites during fall, but autumn/winter 2022 runways lit up with revolving colors. With many changing their lifestyles over the past several years, colorful clothing can show that we are breaking out of our comfort restraints and trying something new. What's more, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says, "Colors for autumn/winter 2022/2023 contrast our competing desires for calm and comfort with energy-boosting vitality through a range of restful and restorative colors, in tandem with exuberant tones" (via Pantone).

This means that bright, highly saturated colors have been slowly working their way up in each season and are guaranteed to pack a punch this fall (via Glowsly). Whether on a top, a bottom, or an accessory, these colors are going to be popping up everywhere. We are already seeing these trendy colors in campaigns for Valentino, Blumarine, and Loewe. Now, after evaluating the F/W 2022 runways, we have curated our top five picks for the colors that will dominate fall fashion.

Barbie pink

Valentino's Barbie pink fall 2022 campaign starring Zendaya was just the tip of the pink iceberg (via Paper Magazine). Though Valentino was the first brand to stun with hot pink on F/W 2022 runways, it certainly is not the only brand hopping on the trend. Luxury retailers and fast-fashion brands alike can be seen incorporating hot pink into their fall styles. With Barbiecore blowing up due to the upcoming "Barbie" film starring Margot Robbie, pink is only going to continue to trend.

Shimmers and shines

While not necessarily a color, variations of shimmer are going to be everywhere this fall. Y2K fashion is still going strong on runways, bringing back shimmery netting, sheer sequins, and shiny embellishments. After so many seasons of wearing comfy clothes, it is no wonder that we want to deck ourselves out in shine this fall! Bottega Veneta, Isabel Marant, and Versace were just a few of the major brands that brought glitz to F/W 2022 runways (via Fashion United).

50 shades of yellow

While perhaps not literally, 50 shades of yellow are showing up on our radar for fall fashion. Yellow is generally seen as the color of hope, and from mustard to canary, we saw tons of hope on fall runways (via Fashion Network). Being used in many monochrome looks, yellows bring a bit of sunshine to fall. Celebs love it, too, with Dua Lipa making headlines when she walked Balenciaga's F/W 2022 runway in a yellow, one-shoulder mini dress.

Fall blues

Shades of bright blue make for a stunning pop of color for the fall 2022 season. Brands are showcasing this color in accessories, tops, and bottoms, and everyday people around the world are finding ways to accessorize outfits with blue accents. From the Cult Gaia Azariah bag to the Super Blue Fleur du Mal Knit Corset, we are already seeing shades of blue in the wardrobes of our favorite influencers. Blue is fun, too, because you can pull from any shade, including teal, aquamarine, baby blue, and cerulean.

Funky greens

It's like St. Patrick's Day but for the entire fall season. That's right: shades of funky green stunned on the F/W 2022 runways. Top brands like Versace, Chanel, and Dior all showcased different shades of green on their catwalks (via L'Officiel). MCM even used a lush green background and pops of green throughout their fall 2022 marketing campaign. In 2021, Bottega green took over, and in 2022, variations of the shade have proved they are here to stay.
