Spring is peeking its head around the corner, but the fashion world is already setting its sights on fall. While editors and enthusiasts are poring over the next ready-to-wear and accessory must-haves, we're also taking note of some emerging color trends. There was a noticeable shift to traditionally warmer tones, like burnt oranges and rich emerald greens, as seen on the runways of Khaite, Max Mara, and Emilia Wickstead. A more surprising trend: Versions of electric blue and variations of yellows were seen popping up in the new collections of MSGM, Victor Glemaud, and Molly Goddard. So no matter your mood, there’s likely a color combo for you. Click through to discover what shades we're most excited for this fall, and get ahead of the game by shopping out pieces today.
