Earthy colors are often considered popular colors for fall. Brown or tan is a popular neutral or base color, which can be complemented with shades of green and light blue. Orange, red and gold—colors that mimic autumn leaves—are also quite common during fall.
In addition to these classic shades, new popular colors also emerge each year during runway shows at which designers show their fall fashions. For example, Pantone identified 10 popular colors for the fall 2015 season. These include neutral shades of brown, gray and navy, as well as muted purple, pink and orange. The overall color palette is cool, with some warm colors as well.
