Men's Accessories FW 17/18 Top Color Forecast

Courtesy of Fashion Snoops

On view the five top men’s accessories colors for the Fall/Winter 2017-18 season as picked by the editors at Fashion Snoops. The dominant palettes for men’s accessories all confirm various themes that place a renewed focus on contemporary sport, archetypes of men’s uniforms, and plenty of luxe classics that can translate to cityscapes or casual scenes.

The color stories for next fall/winter are an indicator of palette shifts to come in seasons ahead. Decidedly relatable earthtones represent the acceptance of non-seasonal (or all-season) colors that emphasize many different silhouettes and fabrics — a kind of “new neutral” that works for a variety of looks and markets. They are as warm as they are rugged.

Evolving from last fall’s icy pastels, the faded mid-tones for next fall hint at the importance of novel colorways that can help transition the selling seasons, creating newness for time-honored basics, and offering up intriguing color combos with more expected hues typically seen in the season. Hyper brights inject a burst of active-inspired energy into cold weather assortments. They add a welcome level of novelty into a season full of somber and sophisticated hues.

Finally, an important batch of jewel tones bring back a level of pomp and circumstance that the men’s market continues to demand, helping to emphasize the new interpretation of contemporary masculinity and the many surprising contrasts.
