3 Color Trends Your Closet Needs This Fall
The season is bursting with rich, dynamic colors, which means it's time to reassess your closet and incorporate shades that mimic Mother Nature. The trick to wearing autumn's bold and earthy tones is to anchor your outfit with a bright or neutral shade, then accent with its opposite. You can even work prints and accessories into the mix to further accentuate the palette. Whether you're dressing up for occasions or keeping it leisurely, here are three color trends to flaunt as the leaves are falling.
1. Turn Up the Warmth With Red
The undeniable "it" look for autumn is an annual shade of red. This year, the color officially goes by "Grenadine," evoking a sweet and syrupy tint that heats up your style without burning too brightly. If traditional power red just doesn’t suit you, go with a classic, more muted maroon.
2. Rock a Right-Now Neutral
The go-to hue for fall is gray, beloved for its cool, calm place on the color wheel and considered a timeless, dependable favorite. From basics like pants to extras like boots, you can pick your favorite pieces in gray and pair them with other colors, or cover yourself in this versatile shade for a modern neutral statement.
3. Take Floral Print to a Darker Place
Ready to complement your red or gray is a fresh floral reboot for fall. Going beyond the season’s typical gem tones and usual neutrals, this popular pattern also taps into hues like purples, pinks and blues. Romantic? Yes, but also moody and mysterious to set these florals apart from spring bouquet.
