Trendspotting: Color Trends at NYFW for Fall 2012

Over the last two weeks, just like last season, I went through all of the amazing Fall 2012 runway shows.  And not surprisingly several trends began to surface.  If you’ve been hanging out with me for a while you know my rule on trends: it takes 3, and so I’ve captured these trends that we’ll be shopping in just a few months and loving in a few more.

Three colors really stood out and were played with in casual and formal styles.  What was especially exciting is that these colors are a bit outside of the traditional fall shades of cranberry, navy and hunter green.

On with the trend show!

Orange Crush:This color, softer than rust and richer than citrus, floated down the runway.  Many times it was used with beautiful silks, flecks of metallics, and in luxurious silhouettes.

Teal My Heart:This color really was swoon-worthy.  It’s a layered color between blue and green that would make even the most glamorous peacock jealous.  It plays beautiful with other jewel tones and near monochromatic shades of blue and green.

Berry Be Mine:Pink is ultra feminine, red is sexy and fierce, purple is regal and grand.  The shade of berry, or oxblood as it is being called, that was used on the runway is an amalgamation of all of these adjectives.  It is pure sophistication whether in street ready leather, or gala ready silk.

What do you think?  Would you wear these colors this fall?  I am especially loving the teal and berry!
