A Pinch Of Spice…
Trying on that pretty wool jacket in “nutmeg” from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (see pic HERE) has reignited my obsession with the spice/rust/terra-cotta/cognac family of colors. While I ultimately decided that particular jacket was heavier than I needed, I’d love to find something in a similar color and lighter weight.
These warm spicy tones are usually considered fall colors, and are often more available beginning this time of year. But I don’t think they have to be relegated to autumn-only wear. It’s really more the weight of a piece than color that determines what’s seasonally appropriate these days.
Eileen Fisher’s August collection includes several pieces in the color “paprika” which is just a little brighter than the wool jacket, but still within that color realm.
J.Crew almost always has some iteration of this color in their collections. Here’s a cute cotton boatneck sweater in “spice.”
A suede jacket in rust is a classic. This one from BLANKNYC is included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
A cognac bag can be a nice way to add some fall color. The stripe adds a nice visual pop to this simple leather tote.
Are there any traditionally “fall” colors that you like to wear year-round?
