1. Sustained Gray
It’s easy to mix and match brighter pieces when you have a couple of neutral clothing items in Sustained Gray in your wardrobe. The subtle tint of Sustained Gray points to fashion lovers prioritizing functionality and utility. Other popular colors like Nimbus Cloud and Lava Smoke confirm the prevalence of grays in the 2024 fashion palette as impenetrably solemn essential colors. Cool gray mixes with deeper colors to make looks pop, as seen in runway shows in New York, London, and beyond.
2. Cool Matcha
According to designers, Cool Matcha is one of the 2024 trend colors that evokes the harmony and serenity found in nature. Its versatility makes for outfits that look and feel relaxing and peaceful. The lively tinted pastel hue of Cool Matcha offers a moment of restorative bliss for fashionistas who yearn for a non-traditional fall hue. Cool Matcha ushers in liveliness to the winter season with youthful and restorative qualities. This shade can easily be found in sleepwear, loungewear, and activewear alike. Wear Cool Matcha for your apres-ski look or as an accent color. Pair Cool Matcha with more vivid and saturated shades of green, like the next popular shade on our list: Pistachio.
If you have clothing in lighter shades of Pistachio green from the spring and summer seasons, it’s easy to learn how to layer clothes for fall and winter to extend the life of your seasonal wardrobe. It might seem a little too early to even start thinking about spring when it just started snowing not too long ago, but it’ll be here before you know it. Once the sun starts shining again, the unexpected Pistachio will become the perfect pop of color to add to your nighttime wardrobe. The soft, pastel Pistachio flatters across a wide range of skin tones, and you’ll see it everywhere, from Pistachio evening gowns to trench coats.
4. Forest Green
You don’t have to head to the forest to embrace the allure of Forest Green. Add this shade to your spring and summer mood board. It’s a big hit on the spring and summer 2024 runways, showing up on practical office dresses and outerwear. Kelly Green was popular several seasons ago, but Forest Green is taking the limelight now. While Kelly Green is a bright, vivid shade of green with a strong yellow undertone like lush grass, Forest Green is a darker, more subdued shade of green. It’s reminiscent of forest foliage, a more muted tone that carries a sense of richness and sophistication.
5. Intense Rust
The rich, deep reddish-brown of Intense Rust draws inspiration from earthy tones that are associated with rusted metal. It exudes warmth and is perfect for creating sophisticated and cozy looks. Pair Intense Rust with neutral tones like a rust-colored sweater with gray trousers or a beige skirt. Intense Rust pairs excellently with denim, so consider wearing rust-colored tops or rust-colored outerwear with your favorite denim jeans for a casual chic look.
6. Silver Shimmer
While it’s true that metallics are more of a wardrobe essential than just a trend, you can’t go wrong with having Silver Shimmer pieces in your closet this winter. Get ready to sparkle and shimmer with every step when you wear colorful women’s tops in Silver Shimmer. This metallic shade combines a reflective silver hue with a subtle shimmer. It’s known for its lustrous, shiny finish that adds a touch of glamor to clothing. Wear Silver Shimmer on a cocktail dress or incorporate it into your wardrobe through separates like skirts, pants, or blouses.
7. Lavender Haze
If you just want to stay in that Lavender Haze, so do we. This color isn’t just a Taylor Swift song. It’s a soft pastel that was trending back in summer 2023 and still looks like it’s going to continue year-round. While we often think of pastels as synonymous with winter, its seasonless versatility means you can wear them any season. Wear Lavender Haze with knit sweaters and lacy dresses.
This winter beckons us to embrace a spectrum of colors that mirror the multifaceted nature of our styles. Classic neutrals are forecasted to take center stage to blend seamlessly with making a bold statement with a selection of accent pieces in vibrant shades. Express yourself with a palette that transcends the ordinary. Wear those earrings in Pistachio or grab colorful handbags in Forest Green to suit your new year, new you look.
