Californians enjoy the privilege of an endless summer, yet there is no color palette more rich than Fall’s- pink sunsets, the rich golden hues of changing leaves, even the cool grey of a foggy morning. Using Pantone’s official fall color guide, we explore the best colors of the season, and how to wear them in any climate.
Cuddle up in a cool grey palette that celebrates all things cozy. Like your favorite blanket, Pantone calls this color “dependable” and “constant,” a wardrobe stable that best suits a classic cashmere.
How to wear: Embrace a tonal palette and focus on mixing luxurious textures. Chunky knits combine with soft charmeuse. Whether you are stepping out or sleeping in, it’s all about the quality.
This mustardy hue evokes the warmth of a sunset and is meant to add brightness and vibrance to neutral tones.
How to wear: Play with a 60’s mod inspiration-suede a-line skirts, clogs, knit crop tops-and pair back to camel and khaki. Gold accessories are always a good way to work this palette in without too much pop.
The perfect inspo for a weekend trip to Napa, or our ultimate California road trip. This is the fall color for sexier moments in the season, like a fireside romp, or a chateau soirée.
How to wear: Pair a vampy burgundy lip with a casual look. Lace detail adds an elegance for eveningwear, both in and out of the bedroom.
Sophisticated and feminine, this shade should skew more nude/blush than bubblegum, and add lightness to darker shades.
How to wear: Pair back to Marsala and Burgundy tones for a contrast, or highlight a tonal look with super feminine styling, like a flirty silk skirt or an illuminating blush.
