Trends are born from the runway each season but don’t truly come alive until they’re taken to the streets. At Copenhagen’s spring 2023 Fashion Week, this theory was put to the test, and to no one’s surprise, this sartorial lot delivered. From outfits with a Western flair to suit vests galore, stylish showgoers showcased many a fall trend, but none stood out more than the playful punches of color. According to this season’s street stylers, the best fall fashion colors in 2022 are bright and beautiful, from head-to-toe oranges and zesty lime greens to classic autumnal browns and grays. If you consider yourself more of a color minimalist, let this be the season where you color outside the lines and into your wardrobes.
Implementing dramatic colors into your outfits can be hard for some, but with easy-to-digest outfit formulas, you’ll be dressing like the Danes in no time. Starting strong with Pacific Ocean blue: This hue has been slowly taking over the runways the past couple of seasons, and it’s finally made its way to the street. Like this street styler pictured here, fade into the look with a tie-dyed tank top followed by a bright blue pant. Another award for the color of the season goes to deep orange. Style the eye-catching color in a head-to-toe look that includes Loewe’s It bag of the season, the Puzzle bag. Zesty lime has made its color debut in the form of slinky dresses, menswear-style blazers, and even accessories. Its close relative, mellow yellow, also made an appearance in fall maxidresses and knitwear. Thanks to the rise of Barbiecore, hot pink is definitely having its moment, showing up on some of fashion’s chicest insiders. The hero piece? A pair of hot pink leather pants. For those wanting to step their toes in the colorful water but in a more neutral fashion, classic autumnal tones like gray, vanilla-latte beige, and brown were also on display. And because dressing in all white is seasonless, there are off-white takes that feel more fall fashion-forward.
Add a punch to your outfit this fall with street style’s standout colors of the season. Below, the nine best fall 2022 fashion colors to start wearing now.
