Fall is here and Love Happens is living for the Pantone NYFW 2021 color palette! It’s almost like summer isn’t over. We’re embracing the bold and bravely coming up with strong-hued looks. Get ready to rock yellow of all colors!
Although normally Autumn/Winter collections tend to reflect the weather, with less intrepid colors and mostly focusing on browns and burgundies, we have a revolution on the horizon! So, get into the Fuchsias, the fiery reds, and royal greens this Fall.
From Fashion to Home, Bold Colors Are Here to Stay
The Core Classics are a Must for Fall 2021
Light neutrals are always a great way to feminize any fall/winter outfit. Furthermore, these look amazing with the classic Fall colors such as brown. They are also a great base for any look, being that you can always spice them up with other colors or patterns even.
Going more into each color for this year’s neutrals we find the most gorgeous pale shades.
Coconut Cream – PANTONE 11-1007
Just like the name insinuates, it is a coconut-inspired cream color. In Fashion, it sets the tone for a bright Fall look and in interior designing, it opens up the space and brings the light in.
Ultimate Gray – PANTONE 17-5104
A classic gray, perfect for a suit day or just a blazer but also for details in your home’s soft goods. Along with Illuminating Yellow below, Ultimate Gray is one of Pantone’s 2021 Colors of the Year.
Soybean- PANTONE 13-0919
Soybean is a beautiful beige. Forget the simple cream, this is a great light blonde nude for a coat or boots. Moreover, in home decor for Fall it looks great as a base, or as the main color with touches of boldness all throughout.
Olive Branch – PANTONE 18-0527
This speaks of growth. Not only being symbolic of olives but for their bravery and uniqueness as well. It is a color that during Fall 2021 will revolutionize neutrals everywhere.
These light neutrals are great options for accents in your look or home. They can put your shading game on a whole new level. With the right proportions, it creates a simple foundation for creativity.

Another beautiful pink but this comes out a lot more simple and it is a great start for those who tend to gravitate more towards pale colors. It is a great accent color for a bedroom or closet since it creates quite the intimacy.
Adobe – PANTONE 17-1340
A bronze clay shade that would look outstanding in a coat or turtleneck. And don’t forget the high knee boots! When it comes to the home, woods and natural leathers are a great way to incorporate this tone.
Fire Whirl- PANTONE 18-1453
Crazy fiery color coming through! This red is the perfect color for Fall, it isn’t too bright or too toned down.
Rhodonite – PANTONE 19-3838
A deep blue, perfect for a dark clothing day. It surely would look breathtaking with touches of the illuminating shade. In fashion, it translates in a trench coat or a heel. In decor, it could be the walls for a full-on effect, or just a splash of color to pop in a neutral setting!
Spring Lake – PANTONE 18-4221
Similar to other more toned-down shades, this fabulous blue resembles a quiet and relaxing lake. It is a color that looks perfect with both silver and gold jewelry and hardware.
Root Beer – PANTONE 19-1228
Our last color is a brown, which already gives all the fall vibes. However, for 2021 we are seeing root brown. It essentially is a rich earthy green that inspires green living.
This year’s Pantone color palette speaks volumes of the renewed esperanza coming to us at the end of this terrific cycle. After a whole lot of staying at home in loungewear, not being able to see the world and conquer it. The shades NYFW presented us ask you to go out and explore the unique, bold little things in life.
