Pantone released its Fall Color Forecast today, the first day of Fashion Week in NYC where designers present their fall collections. The outlook? A bit conservative, at least in the fashion world.

“Mindful of consumers’ need for practicality, plus their desire for newness, designers offer many options for women to extend and embellish their wardrobes this fall,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Building on the color palette from spring, this season’s offerings include innovative takes on fundamental basics, as well as transporting, lively colors that conjure images of travel and adventure, whether real or aspirational.”
