The one thing that sets staple pieces apart from the others is the color. While fashion always comes back to the basics, adding a pop of color to a collection can start a trend that lasts the whole year.
So, what fashion colors are most popular in 2020? And do you anticipate adding these colors to your wardrobe? From wearing one color all over to just sticking to a statement pop of color, a world in black and white will never work in the fashion industry.
So, what fashion trends are on the horizon when it comes to colors? Here are some of the most popular colors from the Fall runways.
Fall Runway Color: Lilac
Fall might transition us away from the light and bright spring and summer colors, but that doesn’t mean we immediately need to make a move. Lilac was holding on strong during the fall runway. From overcoats to faux furs, it was sprinkled throughout collections from multiple designers, including Alberta Ferretti.
Fall Runway Color: Rust
You might think that rust belongs at the bottom of a shower, but it exploded across the runways this season. The perfect shade for fall, it worked flawlessly in several looks and fabrics, including latex, velvet, and suede. Designers, including Acne Studio and Boss, all had pieces in this incredibly beautiful shade, making it one of those must-haves for the year.
Fall Runway Color: Amber
Yellow may not be everyone’s color, but the Amber shade almost begs it to be. A jewel-tone by nature, it glistened under the spotlight of the stage lights this season. It’s a natural transition color from summer to fall, and of course, designers from Cynthia Rowley to Dennis Basso had to include it in their collections. Would you be brave enough to try it?
Fall Runway Color: Jade
Most people think of fall colors the same way they think of the leaves changing. Jade seems to fit perfectly into that idea. It’s a more jewel-toned version o green that works for everything from pants to overcoats. While you might assume it’s more of a Christmas color, it’s a chic look that was popular on the runways of Carolina Herrera and Celine.
Fall Runway Color: Powder Blue
Another color that could transition through multiple seasons is Powder Blue. The billowy color showed up and surprised everyone this fall. It’s a spring shade that performs exceptionally well on fall pieces such as Erdem’s midi dress and Gucci’s incredible take on a woman’s suit. While it might be a bold take for workwear, it definitely made an impression on everyone in attendance.
The fall runway can dictate the choices we make throughout the year, transitioning right on through the seasons. The colors that dominated 2020 will take us in bold new directions we’ll want to keep experimenting with.
Whether you’re drawn to the spring-inspired lilac and powder blue or looking forward to jade and rust, there’s a little something for everyone with these options. What’s your color of the season?
