Cranberry is the new bold holiday color

The holidays are just around the corner and the color trends have changed once again.

When autumn was starting on the other side of the globe, pumpkin spice was a popular choice. Now it seems like cranberry is getting its moment thanks to the runways of London Fashion Week autumn/winter 2019/2020.

How can you tell cranberry from the many shades of red? Glowsly notes it’s reminiscent of the punch you find at parties—it’s red but has a pink tint to it. Pantone also describes the color as “a vital red that adds a pungent punch to the palette.”

It’s also interesting to see how people wear another kind of red for the holidays. If you want to switch up your wardrobe, here are some picks for you.
