Pantone: Official Colours for London Fashion Week Fall 2017 & How to Wear Them!
In the aftermath of London Fashion Week, fashion fiends everywhere have already been planning their autumn / winter wardrobes, and lusting after the beautiful array of designer clothing showcased at the weeks’ event.
And though most of us will be focusing on the (hopefully) sunny, summer weather that’ll be greeting us in the next few months, we’re taking this opportunity to highlight the hottest colours that were showcased on the catwalks, that you’ll be coveting come September.
Pantone 18-1662 – Flame Scarlet
Bold, sultry and sophisticated, dare to wear Flame Scarlet this autumn. If you’re not quite brave enough to sport such a shade in colour blocks, try adding flashes of scarlet lipstick or ruby gemstones for a hint of old-school Hollywood glamour.
Pantone 12-2904 – Primrose Pink
An unconventional choice for autumn, this pastel shade of pink will be a go-to transitional shade from Spring through to Fall – perfect for anyone looking to splash out on investment pieces! Try incorporating Rose Quartz, Morganite or Rose Gold accents for a blushed glow.
Pantone 16-1331 – Toast
The perfect nude, toast offers a warmer alternative to shades of black and grey. Layer up your looks with tan leather detailing, and hints of rose gold jewellery for a look that’ll be eternally in style all year round.
Pantone 14-4121 – Bluebell
Reminiscent of last year’s ‘Colour of the Year’ Serenity, Blue Bell offers a richer shade of blue that’s still tranquil and delicate. We think that aquamarine gemstones will be a particularly beautiful way to inject a hint of blue into your ensembles come fall.
Pantone 18-3531 – Royal Lilac
Rich and regal, Royal Lilac is the perfect jewel tone we can expect to see from autumn. Lending itself well to being teamed with almost any of the other London Pantone fall shades, for a beautiful contrast, Royal Lilac can also be highlighted through amethyst gemstone jewellery.
Pantone 18-1018 – Otter
Because these hues aren’t just for the ladies, Otter is a wonderful unisex shade that conjures images of buttery leather and woodland surroundings. Embrace the dark side and opt for luxuriously rich leather strap watches and stacking bracelets in deep shades of brown.
Pantone 19-4029 – Navy Peony
Solid and stable, the hue is a fantastic alternative to black as a go-to-hue – think navy coats and lots of denim! If you’re dressing up an evening look though, choose tanzanite and sapphire gemstones to add a sparkling allure to your look.
Pantone 16-1338 – Copper Tan
A welcome warmth amidst the colour palette, Copper Tan is a gorgeous shade that reflects the turning of the leaves. Embellish your outfits with lashings of rose gold jewellery for a rich, layered look that’ll add a gorgeous glow.
Pantone 15-0751 – Lemon Curry
Exotic and spice, Lemon Curry offers a touch of warmth whilst still remaining almost neutral. Combined with an unexpected pairing like Royal Lilac to offset the shade, Lemon Curry sets a perfect backdrop to wear golden hues in jewellery.
Pantone 16-0639 – Golden Oliver
A strong green, Golden Olive beautifully reflects the transition of the countryside foliage towards autumn. A warmer alternative to the khaki shades we saw dominating the catwalks last year, try incorporating Peridot or Emerald accents into your looks for a truly captivating glow.
