To be more exact in the description, just take any navy or cobalt blue, blow some cigarette smoke on it and you will get what the Pantone Color Institute has contrived to call Riverside and got the best among colors to wear in 2017.

  1. Airy Blue

The Blue dynasty was indubitably rocking throughout all the four 2016 fashion weeks playing with all its possible shades and exploring all the avenues ranging from icy blue to cobalt and navy blues.

But it is Riverside together with Airy Blue destined to govern over other blue members.

  1. Sharkskin

Grey palette has always been in attendance at fall/winter runway shows year in year out, but it came as an aha moment for us this time that it is Sharkskin to work triumphantly all over the map whether with bright or muted shades, whether in everyday life or on special occasions.

Through fashion houses using this stable shade in abundance we are now bumping into another grand fall/ winter 2016-2017 color trend to embrace our wardrobes soon enough.

  1. Aurora Red

The fall/ winter 2016-2017 color trends also offer up oceans of red shades ranging from burgundy and carmine to crimson and scarlet. But chalk it up to Aurora Red to let no grass grow under feet coming as the fourth trendy color of the upcoming fall/winter seasons.

This is bold Red with some sensual and warm undertones, not so bold as burgundy and not so vibrant as crimson, but wrapped with some mysterious dust. According to Pantone’s Institute, this gets the metaphorical blood of the palette pumping.

  1. Warm Taupe

The next stability and reassurance-emanating color that has embraced the fall/winter 2016-2017 runway shows many a time and oft is neutral Warm Taupe, characterized by Pantone as trusted, organic and grounded and approachable enough to be matched with each of the 9 colors on the list.

  1. Lush Meadow

The appellation of the next fall 2016 color trend speaks for itself being suggestive of some rich foliage and bringing about utmost elegance, sophistication and swagger.

  1. Spicy Mustard

Spicy Mustard comes as one of the most vibrant fall/ winter 2016 color trends that will add some exotic and zesty touches to any outfit, speaking about its carrier’s living in clover.

As it would be expected, it’s not spring-worthy sunny yellow, bereft of any shimmering rays, but instead squirted with some spices to become a little bit muted and out-and-out fall-worthy.

  1. Potter’s Clay

fall winter 2016-2017

For those having a soft spot for earthy shades, Potter’s Clay comes as the best one among them all through its strong foundation and lovely hybrid of brown and Russet orange, evocative of fall rustling foliage.

  1. Bodacious

Among all the pink-purple shades it is Bodacious that has mostly enchanted fashion designers thus shaping up one of the fall/ winter 2016 fashion color trends.
