Life is a party! That was me singing Celia Cruz. Now, the singer was not so far away because in addition to the happiness that being alive gives us; it is also the carnival of colors that designers bring us on their catwalks. That is a reality.
In this way, it is no secret that with each season and after fashion shows, the Pantone Institute presents us a report with the colors that will take over that year. And although the Fashion Color Trend reports are two: London and New York, we find that some colors match or are similar.
As you already know, the fashion industry is a global phenomenon. So, even if the culture of each country influences it, we also find some international trends “chosen” to wear with pride.
What colors are considered to be fall colors?
This year we can see classic, versatile, and even timeless colors, which will speak of optimism, joy, prosperity, and functionality. These color palettes will display versatility and creativity that inspire confidence and are full of meaning.
We want to inspire, and we will achieve that with the tones essential for this new proposal. Since we are looking for positivity and practicality with a renewed and sustainable mentality, we will prioritize the quality and longevity of trends.

Within this palette, we find colors such as ivory white, classic gray, almond, and very dark blue; as well as military green, which is a bit lighter than Ultramarine Green.
How to combine them?
Simple and fabulous, the trends remain, simply some that other garments will stand out more on different occasions, as is the case with fabrics; and in the case of wool, it will be considered the star texture of 2021. In monochrome outfits, they will be gorgeous. You add them to sweaters, shirts, pullovers, and even dresses.
In turn, they would be perfect in the tailor shop. The working girl suits are worn in one color. With a tailored suit, you will be able to empower your silhouette and look confident.
Next is ecological leather. This year, eco-leather has taken center stage on the catwalks, taking over pants, dresses, and jackets. Likewise, the material helps to be part of fashion upcycling; the trendiest thing is slow fashion.
Finally, the fringes would also look great with this color palette. You will be able to feel like a cowgirl.
