Every season we are presented with new trends and color stories to keep up with. While summer is slipping away and fall is fast-approaching, it can't hurt to know which shades of what color are about to become major sartorial themes as the FW17 collections make their way into stores. Obviously, not every hue is for everybody, and so staying strictly loyal to whatever palette is currently trending isn't always the best idea – but knowing that summer's citrus shades have been toned down to a moodier mustard, or that gray is hot this season will definitely earn you some street style points. 

To stay one step ahead of the game we've pulled together a selection of pieces inspired by Pantone's bi-annual "fashion color report". The company, who specialize in very specific shades of pigment with artfully chosen names, create a swatch at the end of each Fashion Week to analyze the palettes used in collections presented in New York and London. It's basically a complete and concise overview of the upcoming season's must-have hues that we can use to recreate our closets ahead of time. Not only does it mean we know to rock a "Royal Lilac" or "Shaded Spruce" look weeks before everyone else does, but it's also a great way to save a bit of cash by rifling back through your closet to fish out those "Lemon Curry" pants from years ago that you thought you'd never wear again. 

Check out Pantone's fashion color report for fall 2017 and shop our selections of pieces you can buy now to wear before anyone else does:

New York


For FW17, trends from the U.S. make up a beautiful palette of muted tones of brighter colors, like "Grenadine" red, "Golden Lime" green and "Autumn Maple" orange. These would all make for great statement pieces, like a rib-knit skirt or midi dress, while "Navy Peony," "Neutral Gray" and "Tawny Port" will act as the perfect canvas to layer with bold accessories. Try rocking a Prince of Wales-patterned suit with a bright red sweater or sneaker for an outfit that perfectly encompasses New York's palette.

London


Across the Atlantic, there are some similarities with pale pinks and stand-out reds. However, "Flame Scarlet" and "Primrose Pink" are both much more vibrant than New York's equivalents. This palette is more fun and electic, reflecting London's famously out-there style. "Royal Lilac" has been one of the biggest colors across all four fashion capitals, so get those purple pieces out! "Blue Bell" and "Copper Tan" are dreamy pastel shades that would work well for both on- and off-duty looks. While this palette offers the same shade of navy, "Lemon Curry" yellow is definitely the British version of "Golden Lime," and is perfect for adding some '70s flare to any look.
