I’ve declared Fall Trends Week here on the blog, and today we’re talking about the trending colors you may want to have in your closet this Fall 2023.
I did a little bit of Google research to prepare for this post, and it makes a lot of sense based on what I’m seeing in the mainstream retailers where many of us like to shop. I’m a fan of most of these, but definitely some more than others. I’d love to hear which ones resonate most with YOU!
5 Colors to Have in Your Closet This Fall
Just remember, colors are just colors. They never go out of style, necessarily, but some are more popular than others at any given time. If you love any of these, this is the time to lean in, but you don’t have to get rid of other colors in your closet that you enjoy.

If there is any color I’m seeing talked about more than another in reference to fall trends, it is RED. And I mean, all shades of red in all of the various wardrobe categories. I’m especially seeing a lot of red shoes, red pants, and red blazers and jackets. You can wear head-to-toe red or a pop of red in an otherwise neutral outfit. It all goes right now!
#2. Chocolate Brown

We’re seeing a lot of earth tones and shades of brown this fall, but the one is showing up big time is chocolate brown, and I love how it pairs with all shades of denim. This is also a nice color to incorporate into your shoes and bags.
#3. Glacial Blues

I will confess, I had a harder time coming up with the shopping widget for this color because it is going to probably be bigger next spring and next fall, but it’s definitely showing up big time on all the color trend lists, and it’s starting to come in now so I wanted to include it so it’s on your radar.
All shades of blue are going to be huge this winter and next spring, but especially this icy glacial blue. This isn’t a color I typically gravitate towards, but I do like it a lot. I think it will be a run change from all the pink/red/burgundy and the earth tones. Plus, it pairs well with chocolate brown and other earth tones, so it will be easy to integrate with other trending colors.
#4. Buttercream/Salted Caramel

I’m combining these but they’re really two different colors. They’re often taking the form of a metallic more than just a traditional camel or oatmeal, but it’s all out there.
We’re seeing lots of monochromatic looks in shades of camel, caramel, gold, and soybean, but these colors also pair well with the chocolate brown and ice blue that are also trending. They’re also paired quite often with rust and red.

This is another two-fer, but they overlap quite a bit. While they aren’t really new or unique to fall, I can’t leave them out because they seem to be everywhere I look. As with all of the color trends, we’re seeing these in monochromatic outfits, but also paired with neutrals such as grey, camel, and of course denim and black.
What do you think about the color trends for fall 2023? Which ones will you incorporate into your wardrobe this year?
