The top ten colors for men’s and women’s fashion for the fall 2015 season are a perfect palette of hues that showcase a spectrum of earthy autumnal hues.

All were created by the gurus at Pantone, an American company that standardizes color for use in numerous industries around the world.

The belief that color is an integral part of how a culture expresses the prevailing attitudes and emotions of the times is widely accepted and this year’s fashion choices suggest a strong and confident connectedness or grounding to the earth. From a cool blue and a calming gray to a mellow and comforting yellow and a rich and robust brown, the chosen pigments reflect a rainbow of options that work well together or individually.

Stability, credibility and a consistent energy are the inherent messages in this palette, so chose a favorite solid or group colors together from this collection to best express who you are.

(Why? Because as we all know, most people begin to form judgments based on first impressions of people within just a few seconds; and the Institute for Color Research states that anywhere between 60 to 90 percent of that snap judgment is based on color alone!)
