For years, the Pantone Color Institute has forecasted colour trends for the fashion world. From runway fashion to formal wear trends, Pantone sets the tone fashion lovers lean toward all year long. Recently, the icons released the fashion colour trend report of their top hues at the 2022-2023 Fashion Week, and here are six of the most outstanding!
Pantone 14-0851 (Samoan Sun)
The Samoan Sun is a delightful hue that will sprinkle the vibrancy of summer in the winter while highlighting the often underrated yellow tint of autumnal colours in the fall. This shade is also perfect for days when you want a muted yellow. It can serve as a canvas for you to build a look upon. Even better, you can pair it with anything from black to white without concern of mismatching.
Pantone 17-2624 (Rose Violet)
One of the best parts of the colour powerhouse's palette is that the 2022-2023 chosen shades touch on the most beloved colours. The rose violet is a shade of purple with a strong red undertone that bespeaks freshness and positivity. Pantone's reasoning for choosing purple as the colour of the year alludes to the changing time and because it holds a mirror to the current 'mood of the world.'
Pantone 18-1552 (Lava Falls)
The shade, Lava Falls, is one Pantone predicts to be dominant, especially amongst the present fall and winter collections. This shade of red is daring while also exuding an aura of maturity and calm. One of the best features of Lava Falls is how it complements almost every skin tone. Wearing this colour at formal events will make you stand out and be perceived as the bold, confident woman you are.

As its name depicts, Amazon is a lush and prolific shade of green that can be paired with other hues of green, as it has been beautifully displayed on the runway. Different fashionable colours to harmonize this shade with are shades of white and pale blue. Green is a dependable, calm colour that stands out, making it fantastic for work, seminars, and formal events.
Pantone 14-4618 (Waterspout)
