Use default colors for swatches

Find a color you want to use on this list of 140 default web colors, then enter that exact color name as the Option value for a product variant in your Shopify admin.

Note | These color names will appear on your product pages and in the cart. In order to choose your own product variant name or different color, you will need to use a custom web color.
