These Are The Summer Color Trends To Keep In Rotation This Fall

Fall/Winter has never looked so bright.

Style

When thinking of fall palettes, bright vibrant colors are the last thing on my mind. Typically, black and soft neutrals set the tones but just like everything else happening around us, nothing in 2021 is the same. As the world sheltered in place for most of the 2020 fall/winter season, we missed out on our typical fashions as the industry shut down most operations. This year, designers are taking advantage of lost time by making up for what we missed with exciting and vibrant colors, prints and overall looks. With optimism on the rise, there seems to be a gravitation towards intense hues and distinct combinations this upcoming season.


While traditional tones will make a natural shift, bright colors trending through spring/summer will continue to have their moment during the autumn season. According to Pantone Color Institute experts, colors for Fall/Winter 2021/2022 emphasize our desire for a versatile range of color that embraces and accommodates the various possibilities of our lifestyles; colors that encourage personal expression whether sensible or quirky; colors that embrace the calm and healing as well as express a rainbow of hope and joyfulness.

Fall 2021 lit up the runways in more ways than one but designers' use of color throughout each collection created bold personalities of their own. This year's color trends reimagined everyday essentials, easily elevating looks with the use of exciting hues and color schemes.

Warm up your traditional fall wardrobe with electrifying compliments to neutral tones with the addition of deep blues, pastels, vivid pinks, and ultra bright trending hues.

1.Illuminating Yellow

There's something about a black woman in yellow. Typically a spring/summer hue, this color dominated the fall runways. Named Illuminating by Patone, this color is described as "friendly and joyful, an optimistic yellow offering the promise of a sunny day." While the guarantee of a bright beautiful day is less likely as seasons change, mixed with a soft purple pastel, this color combination is giving life regardless of the weather conditions.

2.Leprechaun Green

Named for its wondrous green hue, this color is one of the most distinct. Green has been a top trend throughout spring/summer of this year so it's no wonder it will continue through fall. Cop a few accessories in leprechaun green or layer your look with a bold oversized blazer for the win.

3.Pale Rosette Pink

A romantic pink, the soft Pale Rosetta is another non-traditional fall tone. The perfect hue for a feminine yet chic approach, look for this color in chic knit sets this season. Pair with a classic wrap around heel or a white calf-length boot when looking to accessorize this pretty in pink moment.

4.Mykonos Blue

While many of us may not be able to vacation in the beautiful mediterranean city by the sea, there's no reason not to add this hue to your wardrobe this fall. Described as a brisk blue evocative of the Aegean Sea, this stunning shade of blue is one of my favorite colors of 2021. Such a vibrant tone sets off your entire ensemble with an instant pop. Have fun experimenting with your look for an eye-catching color-blocked combination.

5.Fire Whirl Red

Fire Whirl is the hottest color trend of the 2021 season. This fiery selection will bring the sparks, lighting up your everyday looks this fall. A vigorous red with a dynamic presence, use extreme caution when wearing this bold color choice. Pair with cream and gold accessories for a classic yet chic look to adapt to the rest of your neutral fall clothing collection.

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
