8 Hot New Color Trends From Fashion Week

Being serious color-philes over here, we're already on the lookout for the next Tangerine Tango, and we're not even three months into 2012 yet. If it were up to us, Pantone would release a Color of the Month, but alas, we're stuck with just one shade to last us through the entire year.
Never ones to settle, we've scanned the looks from this past Fashion Month to find some more tone trends. Forget having a color of the year…we've got an entire color wheel worth of hues, just for you!

Burnt Orange — Not quite as vibrant as the oranges of seasons past, we're kind of feeling this softer, dustier orange that so sharp, paired with black accents.

Royal Blue — This striking, true blue is still a designer favorite — but who can blame 'em? This super-saturated hue provides a beautiful contrast to black basics.

PeachWe've already talked about how much we loved all the peach last season, but we need to go over it again. More badass than last season's pale pink and less in-your-face than hot pink, peach is going to be the new neutral this fall.

Primrose Yellow — This mustard-y yellow is a welcome change to last season's acid-neon yellow. We love how it looks as a print, or as a topper in a colorblocked ensemble.

Cerulean — Move over, Tiffany-box blue, there's a new turquoise in town. This bright blue shade is youthful and fresh-feeling, and looks just right with a splash of sparkle.
