Animated autumnal vibes

The classic go-to colors like red, orange, maroon, brown, and beige tend to dominate the fall scene every year, but fall 2023 is showing a twist on these classic colors with more pigmented, bold shades of these beloved autumnal favorites.  

Red Dahlia Red Dahlia Fall 2023 Pantone Colors

Red Dahlia (Pantone 19-1555) is this year’s maroon, but it’s much richer and deeper than traditional burgundy. It exudes sophistication and elegance, creating a timeless look that you can wear beyond fall 2023. It has more elements of brown mixed in than traditional maroon, so it leans more toward a neutral color than a bold red, making it perfect for everyday wear like dresses or cozy sweaters. If you want a pop of color to enliven chilly days, Red Dahlia outwear is particularly sleek when paired with a neutral outfit.

Viva MagentaViva Magenta Fall 2023 Pantone Colors

Viva Magenta (Pantone 18-1750) is equally as dark, brooding, and bold as Red Dahlia, but it’s more pink than red. This color demands attention and boosts confidence, so you may want to incorporate it in your special occasion looks and powerhouse office suits. Play around with this rich magenta by matching it with navy, black, pinks, reds, and even metallics for a true showstopper.

Rose Violet (Pantone 17-2624) is a radiant, high-energy fuchsia. This shade combines the romance of red with the vibrancy of Barbie pink (that’s still hot from summer 2023). For striking drama, wear a head-to-toe fuchsia ensemble – even with a hint of fuchsia on your purse. There are many ways to incorporate this gorgeous color in subtle ways too, like a vibrant belt with neutral workwear or a violet touch in your accessories.

The previous colors have been richly pigmented, but Tender Peach (Pantone 12-0912) adds softness and delicateness to the fall 2023 palette. This beige-peach blends warmth and sophistication, perfect for versatile styling. Because this color borders on a warm neutral, it looks particularly refined when paired with black, white, navy, and delicate gold jewelry. Its neutrality also makes it a more timeless option, so don’t be afraid to invest in a few high-quality pieces you’ll re-wear for years to come.

Burnt Sienna (Pantone 17-1544) is a sturdy, earthy color that embodies the essence of autumn. This sophisticated hue combines deep orange and brown undertones for a shade that radiates elegance. It’s the perfect color to add warmth to cool outfits, and you can even pair Burnt Sienna with summery outfits – like a sundress or white jeans – to create the perfect transitional ensemble. While many people think of an earthy brown when they hear Burnt Sienna, it leans more towards a terracotta brown, like the pants in this picture (which are gorgeously matched with other fall 2023 colors).

Kohlrabi (Pantone 14-0255) is a playful addition to the fall 2023 color palette. This color is loosely based on the cruciferous vegetable, also called the “German turnip,” which has a similar green color. Rather than the sages and forest greens we’ve seen in previous autumn seasons, the Kohlrabi is more vibrant and eye-catching, making it a beautiful statement when balanced with neutrals or darker shades of green. Or, if you’re feeling bold, add other bright, cool colors like blue or purple.
