From Chanel's metallic pink running suit to Dior’s cotton-candy-hued fur trenchcoat, pink, of all shades, is a notable frontrunner this fall. This playful and lively pastel is intent on staying in the spotlight post-spring and summer, primarily as a result of 1960s-resurgent clothing and styles.

“While our fall color palette is typically comprised of neutral hues, things changed in a big way this season. Alongside classic shades of gray, camel, black and ivory were electrifying jolts of fuchsia,” notes a recent article by Pink is an excellent way to get rid of the coming winter blues.

Shakira Parks of Boxercraft also mentions fuchsia as one of the hottest fall shades. “Fuchsia in particular has become much more of a staple than a trend,” she says. “It’s one of those colors that energizes, commands attention and gets you noticed. It’s a great transitional color you can wear all year-round, plus it can easily be incorporated into any wardrobe.”
