/What is your autumn/fall colour?

Here at FootBalance we are constantly reviewing the colour trends for the seasons. As per our last year’s autumn/fall report, blue continues to be a stand out colour. Again we look to Pantone who are synonyms with fashion and colour. Pantone provide their top 10 colours listed in their Fall 2016 report.

The desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism have inspired a Fall 2016 color palette that is led by the Blue family.

Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections. Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades.

Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.

Taking two colours of Pantone’s colours from the list

Earmarking the importance of Blue in the palette, the new blue shade of PANTONE 17­-4028 Riverside undeniably takes precedence in the fall collections.

    Cool and calming, strong and stable
    Displays a subtle vibrancy and sophistication
    Borders on exciting, yet
    Maintains a sense of constancy

 In contrast to the stable backbone of the Fall 2016 palette, PANTONE 18-1550 Aurora Red adds a welcome punch.

    A bold Red that is warm, sensual and immediately pleasing to the eye
    Gets the metaphorical blood of the palette pumping
    Exciting and dynamic, breeds unmistakable confidence

Meso funky compiled a sportswear/activewear report for Autumn/Fall 15 & 16 that is available to purchase. Their colour predictions look to be also leaning toward the light colours of blue with woodland colours of green coming through as well as light purples.
