Pantone's Must Have Colors for Fall 2016

Pantone fall fashion colors 2016

As much as we love summer here in Rhode Island, fall fashion is really what we all look forward to. Admit it. A little part of you can't wait until the leaves start turning and the air cools so you can unpack your leather jackets, don your favorite blanket scarves, and sip on a warm latte while flipping through the September issue of your favorite magazine.

At robin b. clothier, nothing puts us in the autumn mood quite like the release of PANTONE’s Fall Color Report. We love flipping through our designers’ catalogs and seeing these gorgeous colors pop off the pages.

We have to say it: PANTONE’s fall colors for 2016 are more stunning than ever! Inspired by strength, tranquility, and optimism, this year’s palette features a mix of earth tones and vibrant hues. Anchored by the blue family but balanced out by warm reds, the fall fashion storming the runways reflects these unexpected, playful swatches.

To get you and your closet ready for the season, we’re bringing you our three favorite PANTONE fall colors. From the runway to the racks of your favorite women’s clothing boutique, you’ll be seeing these beautiful shades everywhere.


pantone fall 2016 riverside


This vibrant blue may be an unexpected choice for fall but it is PANTONE’s guiding color in this season’s palette. A muted mix of navy and cobalt, Riverside evokes the feeling of calm stability balanced by playful sophistication. You’ll be seeing this deep shade in varying textures and pieces from chunky knits to lavish leathers to sleek silks and everything in between. Our Long Sleeve James Dress by Karen Zambos epitomizes all that Riverside represents. Pairing well with both classic flats and a boot and tight combo, this drapey number will take you from early fall through to winter.

Dusty Cedar

Though this fall pink may be a surprising choice, it’s a strategic nod to PANTONE’s Color of the Year, Rose Quartz. Dusty Cedar is a more muted, balanced pink than the bright tones we’re used to seeing in the spring. It exudes warmth and a youthful refinement that sets it apart as a spectacularly elegant shade. Add a pop of color to your fall outfits by incorporating this rosy hue into your rotation. Our Family/Everything top by good hYOUman will be your go-to tee this season!

Pantone Fall 2016 Sharkskin


There’s nothing dreary about PANTONE’s Sharkskin gray! This edgy neutral pairs well with every other color on the season’s palette, making it a staple in every fashionista’s fall closet. Sharkskin centers around silver tones and has been popping up on the runways of every big name, from Valentino to Michael Kors. If you prefer to snap up the ultra-wearable shades, look for Sharkskin in classic yet contemporary styles that will take you through several seasons. This Quilted Jacket by LOLA & SOPHIE is the perfect choice to instantly update your wardrobe with one of fall’s most anticipated colors.  

You can find these stunning shades, along with the season’s other hottest colors, at robin b. clothier. Shop online or stop by our Rhode Island boutique and let us style you in our latest fall arrivals!
