Pantone's Color Trend Report identifies the key shades for any given season by taking a look at where the designers are gravitating and the general mood of the season. For Fall 2023, the company is predicting bold hues like Rose Violet (a red-tinged fuchsia), Red Orange (fiery orange), Red Dahlia (a deep red), High Visibility (almost-neon yellow), Kohlrabi (vivid green) and Viva Magenta (the 2023 Color of the Year) are expected to take over our wardrobes.
Pretty in Barbie Pink
Every fall season has its own color palette, but this year, fashion gets a dopamine kick with pops of red, bright green, and orange dancing alongside the traditional neutral hues that add a little something special to 2023’s cozy theme.
When you think of fall, the hues of changing leaves usually come to mind. But this year, summer’s bright green is evolving to a crimson, bright yellow, or burnt to an orange crisp. And some of this season’s changing foliage inspo will take on a royal plum and magenta color story.
This season, there’s an emphasis on complementary hues that can stand on their own, as well as some rich pops of color that provide a moody contrast.
Colors of the Autumn Rainbow
Viva Magenta was not only chosen as Pantone's Color of the Year but is also front and center with the long-awaited Barbie movie. Expect to see this color in the fall and winter of 2023 as a statement color of choice, both incorporated into a monochromatic look and as an accent color.

L2R is showcasing the season’s hottest color trend with shades of red, fuschia, and magenta popping up across the style board.

A deeper and slightly more serious red, Red Dahlia is elegance personified. But when mixed with some of the season’s bolder options, it creates a unique contrast.
Like the sun itself, this hue is warm and unignorable. While not exactly a neon yellow, this color is the autumn sun setting on an October evening. L2R’s Wide Leg Pants in Tweety Yellow

Warm, cozy, and very versatile, brown is shaping up to be the new black for fall 2023.
