And three other colors to start shopping RN.
Fall is a solid three months away, but if you’re anything like the fashion- and beauty-obsessed of the world, you're starting to scout out the season’s buzziest colors now. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the four coolest hues you can expect to see everywhere this fall—including millennial pink’s replacement and a bolder take on ultra violet. Plus, we’ll show you four ways to incorporate each color into your wardrobe and makeup kit ASAP.
As soon as fall hits, we have a habit of relying on neutrals (think: an all-black wardrobe and inky eyeliner). This year, expect to see a spike in medium-brown, milk-chocolate tones—a subtle, but necessary, departure from a classic, easy-to-wear hue.

Good news: If the dusty pink of spring and summer washed you out or clashed with your hair, you’ll find solace in fall’s obsession with a universally flattering, warm mauve. A smoother, pink-ier take on one of the style world’s favorite hues, this creamy shade will sit pretty in your closet and your vanity.

We’ll just come out and say it: Millennial pink has had its moment, folks. As we reach fall, we anticipate the soft, barely-there pink will say its final goodbyes before being replaced by a bright, poppy pink. This shade is perfect for anyone craving a change of pace—it’s softer than a classic fire-red, but warmer than your lightest tones.

As we reach the final leg of Pantone’s Color of the Year, expect to see ultra violet transition into a deeper, richer plum. Thanks to skin-flattering blue undertones, this dark-purple, berry hue will leave your complexion looking brighter than ever.
