Make a Statement this Fall with the 2014 Pantone Fall Color Palette

Fall Color Palette


For more than 20 years, Pantone, the global authority on color, has released each season’s most important color trends for fashion and design.

In recent seasons, there has been a gradual shift towards a unisex color palette—this season is no different. The top 10 colors chosen for men and women were inspired by a need to explore, resulting in adventurous colors and combinations. While there are a few differences, we primarily see the same colors for men and women in fashion for this year’s fall color palette.

These are the most prominent hues seen during Fashion Week for fall 2014.
