Fall 2020 Winter 2021 Pantone Colors Trends

Fall 2020 Winter 2021 Pantone Colors Trends
Pantone Fall 2020 Winter 2021 Color Trends by Erika Firm

The Fall 2020 / Winter 2021 Colors that Pantone picked for its Fall 2020 / Winter 2021 fashion trends report are gorgeous. Not much of a surprise to y'all who know me at all: Ultramarine Green, Green Sheen and Military Olive (hello, any shade of green!!!) are my favorites. I'm also loving Peach Nougat, Sandstone, and Rose Tan. The palette is full of warm, richly pigmented earthy colors. Although this is the Fall/Winter palette, I think most of these colors work year round.

When you see the entire palette all together it seems a little … much. But take nearly any two or three and they play nicely together. For holiday 2021 color palette I'm feeling Samba, Rose Tan, and Ultramarine Green together … would look great with a pop of gold foil.

The current trend for weddings seems to be slowly pulling away from blush and peach, into richer reds like samba and fired brick. But I'm predicting 2021 and 2022 weddings will see a turn toward blue, including Pantone's 2020 color of the year: Classic Blue, paired with darker Blue Depths, Sleet, Military Olive, and Almond Oil.

Pantone Spring Summer 2020 Color Trends report

Wow! The 2020 Spring Colors that Pantone picked for its Spring - Summer 2020 fashion trends report are lovely, aren't they? Surprise ... Chive (hello, any shade of green!!!) is my fave ... but I'm also loving Coral Pink, Saffron, and Cinnamon. Based on what I'm seeing trending out in the fashion and home décor world, I'm predicting Coral Pink, Saffron, or Sunlight as the 2020 Color of the Year. But we'll just have to wait and see.

Sunlight (Pantone 13-0822) goes with everything, it's a lovely neutral that really does remind me of the morning sun that streams through my studio windows.

My take on holiday color combinations ... because I ALWAYS have Christmas on my mind. I think if you paired any of the above color combos with something a little sparkly they are super festive.
