As the weather gets cooler and we start to put away our summer clothes, there is usually one thing on every woman’s mind, “What am I going to wear for the fall?” The answer can be found on a multitude of store shelves. But every woman wants to look fashionable and so the next question usually is, “What colors are fashionable for fall this year?” After perusing many store shelves, the clothing colors that keep coming up and up again are more muted colors, such as navy blue, brown, and grey, and then, especially in accessories, jewel toned colors that will make any outfit pop.
Navy blue is the hot color of this fall season. You can see it on everything from mini-skirts to bohemian style dresses. However, the best way to wear this color this season is in a more sophisticated way. You want to wear navy blue in a suit or a classic blouse. The best look that I have seen the navy blue in is a head to toe suit. It’s surprising when someone walks in a head to toe navy blue suit instead of the basic black or grey. A good example of this trend can be found at Express. Their studio stretch suit in navy paired with a white ruffle front blouse is classic in a new way.
One wear to wear brown in an unexpected way, is in a mini sweater dress. Since brown has always been a color associated with fall, designers are trying to reinvent it in unexpected way. Since everyone has that oversized brown sweater in their closet, a mini sweater dress is new and different. The “Knit Cowl Neck Dress” from Bebe is the perfect way to rev up that brown color.
Jewel toned colors are another big thing that we’re seeing in stores for this fall season. Any color that is brighter than you would normally see it can be considered a jewel tone. A bag that is a must have for the fall season is this “Suede Tote” in flame from The Gap. This handbag will give any outfit that much needed pop of color, especially since all of the clothing colors are so muted for this season.
So when you make that trip to the mall for your fall wardrobe, remember what is hot right now, and you will be looking hot all season.
