Six Hottest Color Trends of Fall 2013 Season

Whenever I have to make that shift from sunny and warm joy to nasty and rainy routine, I find myself stuck deeply in fall depression. The only thing capable of saving my world is a couple of hours spent at the shopping mall. There is nothing else in the universe that has as much power to heal my bleeding soul as the process of enriching my closet does. But there are times, when huge bags of my brand new clothing pieces do not bring any satisfaction at all. If you are hoping for fruitful shopping with nothing to regret about, then you better check the color tendencies that will be in vogue this fall.

Navy replaces all the summer shades of our beloved blue, offering a huge variety of chances to play with it. Navy blue is super easy to match your clothing pieces with. Be it a coat, pants or a dress, there is always an opportunity to offset the coolness ans darkness of this color by brighter hues. Celine, Chloe, Dries Van Noten, Hermes, Nina Ricci, Calvin Klein and Paul & Joe all went for this elegant and noble color and I doubt they have ever cried over their choice.

Delicate ecru, as some kind of a contrast to navy, shouldn’t be missed out from your sight line either. As if reminding us about the fluffy snowflakes and morning frost on the window glass (I still hate to imagine it, no matter how poetic it sounds), gorgeous skirts, frocks and coats float on the runway. Seen in the collections of Celine, Isabel Marant, Valentino, Nina Ricci, Elie Saab and Stella McCartney, this grayish-white color is incredibly hard to resist.

Camouflage is also going to be super hot this fall. Michael Kors, Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung and Christopher Kane used this trendy print as a highlight of their Fall/Winter 2013-14 runway collections. A baggy dress in khaki, red, blue and sand or a fur coat with a belt on the waistline: there are literally no limits.

Oxblood red is still with us! Being the brightest color trend of all the presented ones, it definitely deserves your attention. The best way to stay in good mood, despite the dropping temperatures and crazy wind, is to be on the colorful side. Forget your gloomy black trench coats and jackets – fashion is not about being mousy at all. Plus, when it is brands like Burberry Prorsum, Erdem, Marc Jacobs, L’Wren Scott, Marious Shwab and Christopher Kane, which all opted for this color, there shouldn’t be any room for questioning.

Here is quite an unusual color for the season of Fall/Winter – powder pink. “How on earth can one sport a coat of such a delicate and light shade, when it is all muddy and puddly outside?” – you might wonder. Well, I have to tell you, much more significant sacrifices have been made for the sake of fashion. Besides, Carven, Chanel, Mulberry, Christian Dior and Miu Miu, designing their Fall 2013 collection pieces, obviously counted on the service of the dry-cleaner.

Unlike all the other summer trends, color-blocking has no intention to leave us behind. DKNY, Rag & Bone, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Louise Goldin, Victoria Beckham and Proenza Schouler continued with the hot tendency of Spring/Summer 2013. Presented in various color combinations, this trend adds a refreshing hue to each of the outfits.
