AS soon as the temperatures start to drop, we’re quick to embrace a wardrobe full of neutrals, from camels and browns to grays and all black. But this fall, you may want to trade in your trusted black turtlenecks and tan coats for a bold, bright, and totally unexpected color palette.

If the fall 2019 runways were any indication, the season’s standard sea of buttery neutrals and monochromatic black is about to get infused with shades of shocking pink, purple, orange, neon yellow and fashion’s favorite new color: pistachio green. Liven up your wardrobe with these fall color trends that are actually quite groundbreaking.

1. Pistachio

After seasons and seasons of asking what the next millennial pink is, we finally have an answer: pistachio green. After popping up on several Fall 2019 runways, the color quickly began taking over Instagram and the street style scene. The soft hue feels fresh, especially for the fall/winter season, and looks good in both apparel and accessory form.

2. Shades of purple

Purple has long been a polarizing color amongst the fashion set, but it’s staging a triumphant comeback in all shades this season. From pastel lilac to deep violets and all that’s in-between, purple hit the Fall 2019 runways in dress, coat, sweater and even hat form. For a softer take on the trend, opt for a shade of lavender or lilac.

3. Bright orange

The great Elle Woods once declared anyone who said orange was the new pink “seriously disturbed.” But contrary to her passionate hot take, there’s room for both orange and pink this season. Brands like Carolina Herrera and Staud sent head-to-toe orange looks down the runway, proving the color is better when bolder. And Sies Marjan paired the bright hue with an equally bright pink, bringing forth the ultimate unexpected fall color palette.

4. Shocking pink

We may feel bored by millennial pink already, but there’s plenty of room for bright, hot pink in our closets. Liven up your go-to fall color palette of blacks, browns, and grays with a shade of shocking pink that’ll wake you up on the chilliest of fall days. Take note from Jacquemus and try the look in coat form or go the Chanel route and try it out in a suit.

5. Neon highlighters

Surprising us all, neons popped up on countless Fall 2019 runways — from New York to Milan and Paris. Whether you go for jacket, sweater, or dress form, this is one way to stand out in all of winter’s storms.
