create moods that range from sophisticated and structured to lively and
vivid, reports Pantone.

According to the Pantone Fashion Colour Report Fall 2013, the top colours for men’s and women’s fashion this fall will be:

greens from spring evolve and develop for fall. Multifaceted Emerald
continues to sparkle and fascinate, bringing luxury and elegance to the
palette, while yellow-toned Linden Green brings a lightness and
brightness to the deeper shades of fall. Paired with Mykonos Blue, they
create a classic and relaxed fall look.


Exotic Acai adds mystery
and richness to the palette and can be incorporated with the other
colours for powerful combinations. With Emerald, it creates a regal
look. With spirited Samba, the result is dramatic. Koi, a decorative
orange with dazzling and shimmering qualities, serves as a pick-me-up in
the palette.

Rounding out the season’s cornerstone colours are
Turbulence (a dark, mercurial gray), and Carafe (a rich, glamorous
brown). Both provide sophisticated alternatives to basic black and pair
with more expressive colours in the palette.
