Men & Women Both Favor Sangria Most (The Color, That Is)

More than ever, the lines that distinguish menswear from womenswear have been blurred quite a bit. But, that extends beyond frilly J.W. Anderson looks for men and Theory serving up androgynous pantsuits. Instead, as pointed out by Pantone, ladies and fellas have found common ground in their shared appreciation of colors. To be more specific, it's sangria. Again, we're talking about the shade.

The deep purple-red hue is the most popular one used in the fall '14 collections by men and women designers. And, as WWD points out, this means something greater than men and women dressing in a matchy-matchy fashion. It's also a sign that designers and consumers alike are straying from those traditional, expected autumnal colors (such as burnt oranges and browns) and opting for something a bit more outside the box(ed wine).

The rest of the top 10 most used shades agreed on by both sexes includes Aurora Red and the Pantone Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. Click ahead to see the rest of the lineup of trends we have to look forward to until fall. Vino included. (WWD)
