These were some of the neutrals trends picked out by Pantone, but I’ve also chosen other colors, below, which can be worn as neutrals!
Fashion went all futuristic for Fall 2018 and, while many designers went for outlandish options which could make you look as if you’d just stepped out of a spaceship, others went for a beautifully subtle take on the trend and opted to use flowy, drapey, metallics.
Many designers chose a beautiful toasty, orangey brown which is the perfect autumnal shade. The Pantone Color Institute has dubbed the shade “meerkat”. But, whatever you want to call it, it looks just like the turning hues of falling leaves.
Of course, black is never out of style, but this Fall, it is definitely on-trend, with swathes of black on just about every catwalk. Alberta Ferretti went for draped black gowns, while Bottega Veneta upped the sex appeal with lace evening gowns.
Beige is a neutral which is truly timeless. This season, it was used in long, belted capes, embroidered coats, and classic pea-coats worn with over sized scarves.
Another neutral which is perfect for any season, navy is the ideal alternative to black for colder months. Roksanda used the hue for floor-length gowns, while Tibi showcased casual two-pieces and Lebanese designer Rabih Kayrouz chose navy for tailored suits.
6. Crisp, Clean White
Givenchy teamed white with black, for lovely monochrome looks, while other designers chose winter white for everything from double-breasted blazers to structured dresses, scarves to pants. It’s not the most practical of looks, but white can still look stunning for fall and winter.
Gray is always a staple for autumn and winter. But what changes is the shade of gray. This season, most designers are opting for a soft, romantic gray, used in sweaters and coats, while others have decided to mix in a little beige to make taupe. For inspiration on other hues to team your gray with look at this piece on how to wear gray.
Rich and dark enough to be worn as a neutral in the same way as navy, this olive green hue would be the perfect pairing for some of the brighter shades in the designers’ color palette, such as bold orange, or could equally be worn with other neutrals.
