Discover how we pair colors for your fall 2020 outfits using some of the hottest shades announced by Pantone.
Slightly different from the vibrant spring and summer colors, calm and muted hues are preferred for the fall season due to their versatility and functionality. 2020 has been a year full of dramatic events, and so the demand for pieces with longevity increases even more.
According to Pantone, the classic palette for fall 2020 consists of the majestic Blue Depths, peaceful Sleet, bold Military Green, and delicate Almond Oil. Warm hues such as Fired Brick and Sandstone are two of the 10 colors that dominate the vibrant core palette.
Which color combination is your favorite?
1. Sleet & Gray
Giving a shout out to one of the most timeless colors, grey comes with various different shades, and they are so easy to pair together. So simple yet so sleek. A few top fashion houses like Hermes, Dior and Prada have proved grays can never go wrong together by presenting these classic shades in their Fall 2020 Ready-to-Wear collection.
2. Burnt Orange & Black
The most classic fall color on our list is burnt orange, which is one of the earth-tone shades, but a bit less dull and more orangey. This hue can be harsh and tricky to mix and match, so often it is combined with black to tone it down. Burnt orange and black is a perfect combination to wear on a cold day.
3. Military Olive & Buttercream
Green Sheen is in the core color palette for fall/winter 2020, however, we also see the muted version Military Olive and it is also another earth-inspired shade that is expected to be viral this year. We can see it everywhere, from Fendi and Jacquemus runways to even the latest SPA brands’ collections. Military Olive can be paired with a subtle cream color to compliment its dullness.
4. Blue Depth & Sandstone
If classic blue is the color of the year, then Blue Depth is the one for fall. We mix it with Sandstone, a camel shade, to keep its minimalist aesthetic vibe while maintaining the elegance of both colors. This seems like an old-school combination, but today’s top fashion designers such as Victoria Beckham shows us that these two shades are timeless and extremely functional.
5. Peach Nougat and Chili Pepper
Last but not least, the most vivid combination in the list goes to Peach Nougat and Chili Pepper. This is an ideal color mixture for a confident and feminine look. The red hue is muted and resembles the brick tone, while the Peach Nougat is the calm, toned down version of orange, almost like a nude color. Matching these two soft colors together can be a great option for a brunch date or evening party.
