PANTONE: OFFICIAL COLOURS FOR AUTUMN / WINTER 2018 & HOW TO WEAR THEM!

PANTONE: OFFICIAL COLOURS FOR AUTUMN / WINTER 2018 & HOW TO WEAR THEM!

Hot on the heels of London Fashion Week, Pantone have released their London Fashion Week Autumn / Winter 2018 Fashion Colour Report. For those of you unfamiliar with this report, it’s a definitive collection of the hottest colours that are expected to be dominating the shops and our wardrobes in the coming months.

So whether you’re looking to stay ahead of the game, or simply curious to see exactly what shades will all be wearing this winter, here’s our write up on London’s AW18 Pantone colours – and how to wear them!

Pantone AW18 Red Colours - Valiant Poppy - Red Pear

Pantone 18-1549 Valiant Poppy & Pantone 19-1536 Red Pear

AW18 is set to be big on primary shades (as you’ll see as our report continues) and of course no list would be complete without some bold shades of red. Whether you’re going for the iconic London post box red, or after something a little vampier, you’ll probably want to focus on Ruby or Garnet fine jewellery.

A dash of red can not only exude daring confidence, but it can be incredibly flirtatious too. If you’re not quite feeling bold enough to colour block your look, a pop of red lipstick or a glimmer of a ruby ring can be romantic and mysterious.

Pantone AW18 Orange Colours - Russet Orange

Pantone 16-1255 Russet Orange

Orange is the new black? Well it is according to Pantone’s curated colours! A decidedly difficult shade to carry off, particularly if you’re not used to wearing colour, we’d recommend adding that same sort of heat to your look with flashes of rose gold jewellery.

If your budget will allow it too, you could always invest in a Padparadscha Sapphire – recently made popular by Princess Eugenie’s engagement ring. The deep, orangey-pink stone is truly stunning and incredibly on-trend right now!

Pantone AW18 Yellow Colours - Ceylon Yellow - Limelight

Pantone 15-0850 Ceylon Yellow & Pantone 12-0740 Limelight

Adding a pop of summer sunshine into the winter months, Pantone’s shades of yellow play into the primary vibe. Whilst yellow diamonds will be the ultimate style piece, you can easily incorporate yellow gold jewellery into your looks for a similar effect.

Pantone AW18 Green Colours - Martini Olive

Pantone 18-0625 Martini Olive

The most conservative shade from Pantone’s autumn / winter colour report, Martini Olive is a classic khaki shade. Harder to incorporate into your jewellery, but not impossible, we’d recommend looking for deep green emerald gemstones. For a really different look, consider Tahitian pearl jewellery. These dark coloured pearls often have a gorgeous blue-green lustre that looks almost oil-like and can beautifully offset any look.

Pantone AW18 Blue Colours - Quetzal Green - Nebulas Blue

Pantone 18-5025 Quetzal Green & Pantone 18-4048 Nebulas Blue

Completing Pantone’s primary trio are Quetzal Green and Nebulas Blue. Whether you opt for a bold blue or a duskier shade, you’ll want to keep your eye out for sapphire or tanzanite jewellery designs. Arguably one of the most universally flattering colours, blue can be easily incorporated into most jewellery looks from every day to even engagement rings – as proved perfectly by Kate Middleton’s sapphire engagement ring.

Pantone AW18 Purple Colours - Ultra Violet - Crocus Petal

Pantone 15-3520 Crocus Petal & Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet

The self-professed colour of the year, Ultra Violet, is obviously top of Pantone’s AW18 colour report. Whether you opt for a pale hue or a vibrant shade, where purple’s concerned the only gemstone to go for is amethyst!

Pantone AW18 Pink Colours - Pink Peacock - Mellow Rosee

Pantone 15-1515 Mellow Rose & Pantone 18-2045 Pink Peacock

This autumn / winter, Pantone have not only featured one, but two shades of pink on their 2018 colour report. Two contrasting hues, you can beautifully add a feminine touch with anything from a vibrant pink sapphire or tourmaline, to a softer pink like a morganite gemstone. Feminine and flirtatious, Pantone prove that pink is no longer just for little girls or Barbie, and that it can be a staple in our winter wardrobe this 2018.

Pantone AW18 Classic Colours - Sargasso Sea - Tofu - Almond Buff - Quiet Gray - Meerkat

Pantone Colour Classic: Pantone 19-4031 Sargasso Sea / Pantone 11-4801 Tofu / Pantone 14-1116 Almond Buff / Pantone 14-4107 Quiet Gray / Pantone 16-1438 Meerkat

What colour list from Pantone would be complete without the staple colours that we need to team with their definitive shades? Along with the mix of vibrant hues, Pantone have curated an array of muted tones suited to everyday wear. Ranging from a deep, navy blue, through a spectrum of creams and greys, to a warm tan shade, there’s a nautical feel to AW18’s nudes.

To capture the look, keep your jewellery simple with basic metallic. Whether you opt for silver, yellow or rose gold designs, mix up your metals for a truly luxe feel. Two-tone designs are very on-trend and are an easy way to create a contrasting look – just have fun experimenting!
