Fall 2018 is all about colours. Reds, yellows, oranges and lilacs become our best go-to options for the coming season. There is something about the colder weather and grey days that suggests us to rock the neutral hues more than ever. But what about making the sunshine through a colourful closet? Smart, I know. Keep reading to check the non-conventional palette from the Pantone Fashion Colour Trend Report Fall/Winter 18/19 and see how to wear these beautiful shades.

Valiant Poppy

According to Pantone, this hue is a "brave and outgoing red shade effusive in its allure". Not exactly your classic beige but just perfect for the Fall. This beautiful red that reminds us of the leaves falling from the trees during autumn, and it looks fabulous when paired with baby-blue, light denim and all shades of pale light blue.

This greenish yellow is described as "savoury and spicy yellow" by Pantone colour experts.
