Men's Color Forecast, Editors' Top 10 Picks for F/W 2016-17
Alright My Beau's we all know that Fall is about to barge into our life in a few weeks and for that I have done some research for you all to know the color trends this year for men! yes I said for men now we all know that women is easier for us to search but for men its really hard to look for the colors and mostly trends this year since most of them don't have a clue what to wear. Why? is it hard for them well I'll tell you something, every time my brother asks if this color looks OK or is this good? he sometimes doesn't know how to pick the correct color or the correct trends of the year and I have to help him out with that. He has also said to me "when I go to the store I usually get whats on the manikin" yes believe it or not that's what men do when they go shopping. Nana here to the rescue to help you out my handsome beau's! For Fall/Winter 2016/2017, the dominant palettes for menswear all confirm various themes that place a renewed focus on contemporary sport, archetypes of men’s uniforms, and plenty of luxe classics that can translate to cityscapes or country scenes. The color stories for next fall/winter are a dependable indicator of palette shifts to come in seasons ahead. From hyper-masculine midtones to frosty pastels, active-inspired brights and a refreshing batch of urbane neutrals, this palette from the editors at Fashion Snoops is sure to inspire you for the season ahead.
OUTLAND - MIDTONES PALETTE
Warm mid-tones are as inspired by the changing autumnal landscape as the time-honored industrial terrain of the city. Red-cast browns continue to be important to the Contemporary menswear market, nicely pairing with saturated shades of olive and gold. In addition, a decidedly orange base for rusted copper and ginger emphasizes the rugged impact of these “new neutrals.” Rusted Copper Slightly weathered shades of orange and copper become a must-have “new neutral,” especially for woolen outerwear and cozy tailored clothing.
Turkish Coffee Red-cast shades of brown continue for another season, often shown in a head-to-toe way and a great option for rich leathers and dense jersey and neoprene.
Ginger The new camel for F/W 15 is ginger, with a decidedly more yellow cast than before. Adding a surprising level of sophistication to utilitarian classics, it is a novel option for the season.
SOVEREIGN - JEWEL TONES PALETTE The majestic undertones of fall/winter once again add a romantic emphasis to plush fabrics and dramatic layers. Much brighter than the jewel tones of last winter, it’s the shades of peacock and spruce green that really are influential. Also, shades like garnet, mulled wine, and majesty purple have a decidedly blue base which accentuates a masculine new approach. Saphire is one of the riches tones for next season, which come in a less saturated look than the cobalt blue found in the grouping of brights. Spruce One of the key colors for all markets is a blue-based shade of spruce green. Often shown in head-to-toe ways, it looks refreshing for fabrics like cotton sateen and even wool flannel for oversized overcoats.
IMPLUSE - BRIGHTS PALETTE For the last couple of years, a vast array of brights have breathed new life into winter palettes that are typically dominated by autumnal shades and jewel tones. Colors like fox hunt red, hazard orange, and dandelion all inject a primary-inspired energy into assortments, while snorkel blue is less saturated than the digital blue of prior seasons. Royal flush is a surprising shade of magenta pink for menswear, and soft acid is the perfect confirmation for the many romantic, languid, yet quirky themes that are sure to come.
Soft Acid Artificial tones of citron green breathed new life into fuzzy mohair sweaters and other basic fall styles. With an almost electric level of intensity, it is one of the most directional hues of next season.
COMPOSITION - NEUTRALS PALETTE The large group of neutrals is probably the strongest group of colors for F/W 15/16, easily crossing across all markets and fabrics or patterns. These “new neutrals” are sellable, seasonless options, and all have a certain, subtle masculine undercurrent running through them. Folk stone and bounty become the new khaki and camel for the season, with slight pink and green casts. Like other groups, the greens are the strongest, with concrete pond now becoming one of the most essential colors for outerwear and knits. Dark neutrals like silver spring and shale, and tried-and-true blues like steel blue and dark dawn continue to bring out a kind of rugged edge for tailored clothing and coats. Folk Stone The new taupe for the season is a cooler version of khaki with a bit of a pink cast. Adding dimension to basic silhouettes and classic jackets or outerwear, it’s a neutral to watch for coming seasons.
Concrete Pond A grey-based shade of green is taking the menswear market by storm. A perfect complement to tailored grey and navy blue, it’s masculine yet novel at once.
Shale A chilly purple-based charcoal grey is a beautiful extension of the many neutrals for fall/winter. With tactile-heavy fabrics, you can see the added dimension from such a rich and moody shade.
HAZE - PASTELS PALETTE Watery pastels have crossed over into all seasons as of late, and they are as dreamy as they can be masculine. Brisk pewter and smoke ember have a green base that is perfect for cozy tweeds and dense woolens. Ceramic and iced mauve bring out a gentle layer of sweetness for otherwise icy styling, and ivory tusk is one of the must-have hues for nubby coats and high-pile shearlings and furs. Ivory Tusk A full range of winter whites look classy and refined for all men’s markets. With a very understated foundation of pink, this natural and organic option is great for cozy layers and deconstructed tailoring.
Ceramic Delicate tones of power blue are a surprising option for fall/winter assortments. With a clean surface with the perfect amount of white, it emphasizes lightweight layers and techno materials.
