Fall 2008 Colors


Magazines and blogs are buzzing with new fall fashion trends. From my understanding, fashion forms the latest trends and colors, and then it trickles down into other markets like home upholstery and bedding. I enjoy following the fashion scene to get an idea of what color trends to look for in home design, and Pantone takes the guess work out with their fashion color report 2008. What to expect this fall? Cool hues with bright, exciting undertones - love it - plus I'm a sucker for blues! Doesn't this color palette look similar to those vintage combs?! Weirrrdd!!

To see some of these hot fall colors in action check out Heidi Merrick's new collection. I love her feminine silhouettes and the color combinations are fresh with a hint of retro.

What do you predict will be the next "hot" or "it" color?

I have been seeing these colors on everything. Great punches of solid vivid colors.

Thanks for the updates.

i know that yellow was so last season, but I just love all the mustard colors around! How funny that pantone comes out with a fashion color report :)

I'm loving these colors as they are the ones I look best in and wear most of the time.

loving these images

I'm loving that blue dress on the bottom with the ruffled collar, as well as the blouse top right. Blue is a good color for me and I tend to wear it a lot, so lucky for me it's a signature color for this season!!

I'm going to live on the edge and say lilac with a lot of grey (almost a slate colour) and "biscuit" i.e. beige with a brown undertone. If I'm right, what do I get? :-)

please sir said...

Oh sorry no prize, but you get a congrats on being a super awesome color predictor!

i actually like that palette. more cool colors than just orange and yellow. but i did go trend shopping yesterday and saw a LOT of violets.

i work for an accessories company and purple is a hot color for fall. i love these clothes and the color palette does look similar to the vintage combs!

mary said...

I love, love Heidi Merrick. You've chosen some absolutely lovely images! I'm seeing dark purple everywhere, so that's my pick.

Julia said...

You are so stylish, Diana :) I love the color pics at the bottom, this is a great visualization! I think those images are perfect for fall. They're very cool colors, aren't they? I love the sheer fabric!

CoutureCarrie said...

Purple is definitely hot for fall.
But I LOVE this teal/orange combo you have pictured . . . it totally works. And that ruffles dress is just gorgeous!

i think we're recycling a lot this year, but I'm a tad partial to mustard. ;)

jozette said...

I'm obsessing over the orange skirt and blue top. those two colors are beautiful.

porter hovey said...

Ohhhhh!! I just love everything. Fabulous. Can't believe it's almost fall.

I'm not much for frills and there seem to be a lot here, but I do like that pale flesh coloured shirt and a bit of razzle dazzle in the shirt. The blue in my pantaloons / knickerbockers are right on the money don't you think? http://katiecrackernuts.blogspot.com/2008/08/drum-roll-please.html

jess gonacha said...

good lord, i'd give anything for that light blue coat. i'm not kidding. and SWOON with that red skirt!

The Lil Bee said...

I want it all. I've never even heard of this chick! OMG.

And the turquoise dress? I can't even...

Love the collection & the colors!!!

S.HOPtalk said...

I'm still firmly planted in summer, but love these colors and images. The blues are amazing!!! Something to look forward to :)

Robin said...

Fall?!? I'm not ready! I still want summer!

However, I do really like that blue coat with the big buttons....

M.Kate said...

Cant say if I am good at predicting..but these look great, would'nt mind to own any of them. Here's only summer fashion 365 a year, we have no season..now that's sad.

SimplyGrove said...

Great collection and I love love all of those colors. The gray jacket is my fav!

jae said...

Love the blue blouse with the orange skirt....from another sucker for blues!

Camille said...

I like the orange added to the color scheme. Orange is, to me, a fall color. Next hot color?...Maybe something in the green family?

bandelle said...

You've reminded me that I need to update my color trend report. I'm a huge fan of Heidi Merrick -- I wish I could buy it all.

littlebyRD said...

I love the navy dress coat! I am partial to blues and grays. Not sure what the next hot color will be. I just read in Lucky magazine it is purple - definitely not my favorite!

heather said...

I'd give my left arm for hair like that. The clothes are cute too. :)

jessmc said...

love your choices! especially that blue coat.
