Pantone's Top Fall Colors: A Seventies Vibe

 “Even though the economy seems to be on the upswing, still there are those who are feeling insecure about significant world events, both politically and ecologically,” Eiseman said. “The Seventies were also a time when the public was emerging from a recession [in the early part of the decade]. There also was a growing interest in the preservation of nature. Utilizing earth tones gives people a sense of rootedness and grounding, similar to what people were feeling the need for in the Seventies.”

Fashion designers’ affinity for the Seventies will still be going strong this fall, given the earthy tones that rank in Pantone’s Top 10 fall color list for women and men.
