With Fashion Month officially over, we're looking back at the designers, materials, and colors that dominated the runways.

Doing the same is the world's authority on all things color (who's Color of the Year predictions always spark widespread attention), Pantone. The color giants looked to the New York and London runways to release its Fashion Color Trends Report for spring/summer 2019.

And it's a decidedly optimistic, vibrant palette. With warm sunset hues, golden yellows and attention-grabbing reds dominating the trends.

According to Pantone Color Institute’s color experts, it's all about empowerment next season, "spring/summer 2019 reflects our desire to embolden ourselves as we face the future; turning to colors and color stories that provide confidence and lift our spirits."

"This new mindset underscores a desire for a joyful juxtaposition of color that transcends seasonality and joins together high fashion and street style,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, in a press release.

Power up your wardrobe when the warm weather returns with Pantone's predicted fashion color trends:
