Obviously, color preference is in the eye of the beholder, some may want a team that's decked out in pink and purple together, others will want gold lamé kits, you know, the usual. And it's a tricky balance to make between picking the handful of colors everybody seems to have and going for the unusual to stand out. Between pink, purple, orange, and what appears to be gold and silver (though the metallic colors are mismatched, for some reason), there is plenty of opportunity to go off the beaten path.
So you can make your voice heard regarding these colors on social media this week, as they roll out each color one by one. Since it's Monday, only one has been blown up so far:

Team settled on final colors a couple of months ago, I'm told. So vote away, but know that black, red, gold & silver are already locked in.— Pablo Maurer (@MLSist) September 14, 2015
Have also heard that #LAFC may have a kit leaning heavily on black/gold as well - guess that sort of sets them apart from ATLUTD. Sort of.— Pablo Maurer (@MLSist) September 14, 2015
