8 Ways To Incorporate Pantone's Trending Fashion Colours Into Your Wardrobe

Twice a year, Pantone releases its Fashion Color Trend Report with an overview of the most important hues of the season. For Fall/Winter 2018, rich, bright and somewhat unexpected shades are taking centrestage — we tell you how to pull them off.

Red Pear (Pantone 19-1536)
Burgundy is a colour choice that’s mega for fall, but the way to wear the oxblood tone is to drench yourself in it. Match a puffed-sleeved top with a tutu skirt for maximum effect. Offset the look with accessories of a different hue for contrast.

Clockwise: Semi-sheer top with puffed sleeves by Roksanda, US$737 (S$1,006), via Matchesfashion, Ruffled tulle midi skirt by Molly Goddard, £675 (S$1,212), via Net-a-Porter, Horsebit leather loafers by Gucci, £540 (S$970), via Net-a-Porter, Wooden crossbody bag by Zara, S$69.90, Gold circular studs by Gorjana, S$47.54, via Revolve


Nebulas Blue (Pantone 18-4048)
There’s the blue sky, the blue sea and the blue you. This shade wouldn’t be out of place in a beach town. Bask under the sun in this calming tone as you take in views from the infinity pool at your resort.

Clockwise: Embroidered cotton kaftan by Celia Dragouni, S$550, via Farfetch, Baroque printed bikini by Dolce & Gabbana, S$617, via Farfetch, Fringed straw basket bag by Kayu, US$125 (S$171), via Net-a-Porter, Patent leather strappy sandals by Manning Cartell, AU$399 (S$402), Tinted circular sunglasses by Charles & Keith, S$65.90


Ultraviolet (Pantone 18-3838)
This is the colour of 2018. This tone evokes thoughts of higher consciousness and creativity, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in a statement.
