2015 Pantone Color Report: An Evolving Color Landscape

Here is this last section of the top 10 most popular fall and winter colors, where I focus on the warmest and most unique hues this color palette has to offer. I’m thrilled that there are some refreshingly cheerful colors to choose from this season! The colors that we choose to wear and surround ourselves with can have a substantial impact on our mood, so I love that it will now be “fashionably acceptable” to incorporate more vibrant and upbeat hues to uplift our spirits on some of those dreary winter days.

Cadmium Orange Pantone Fall Fashion Color Trends 2015

Pantone’s Top 10 Fall and Winter Color Report: Cadmium Orange

Cadmium Orange is a warm, welcoming and gorgeous hue that is somewhat subtle but holds enough drama for a new type of refreshing orange this Fall and Winter. It’s almost a peachy type of orange that evokes a sentiment of optimism, fun and fantasy. It’s both playful and sophisticated that is a lighter compliment to the more traditional deeper orange and copper type fall tones. It can also act as a valiant contrast to the darker blue and green tones popular in these cooler months ahead.

Cadmium Orange’s Complimentary Swarovski Crystal Color Tones Include:

It’s also an every day type of color as well because it’s just so darn beautiful!
