Fall / Winter 2016 Color Trends
As expected, the fall 2016 Pantone colors are not as bright as Spring Pantone Colors. The overall theme is what you’d expect from fall colors, but it does have a bit of a twist. There are more blue tones and the only green, Lush Meadow, on the list is quite bright.
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.

I personally enjoy the Dusty Cedar tone. It’s a nice balance between pink and red.
