Fall Fashion: It’s All About Color…
This early fall fashion season has always been my favorite. It’s the one time of year I get really excited about color. Even though many fashion colors have become more cross-seasonal (ballet pink, rust, and mustard yellow, for example), there’s often a depth and sophistication to the colors introduced this time of year that appeals to me.
A couple of days ago, I had a chance to peruse some of the new arrivals at Eileen Fisher. There are some really gorgeous colors in this collection! I’ve ordered that cardigan/jacket in the color shown above (Monterey). The color is a gorgeous soft berry that mixes well with either warm or cool colors. It’s offered in Midnight (Navy) as well. This is exactly the kind of unlined, softly structured, Not Black jacket I’m always on the hunt for. Also shown: shell | pants. I adore that Nutmeg color too, though the wide-leg pants aren’t my thing. I might be persuaded to try the slim stretch crepe version.
I also really liked this soft, dark berry color (Raisonette). Above: v-neck sweater. This is a really nice lightweight fabric, perfect for transitional seasons and for travel. Sweater is also offered in Maple Oat (natural beige) and a bright red.
BTW, for those of you who prefer navy to black, they’ve added a lot more pieces in the Midnight color, including many of the basics.
And that same Raisonette color looks even more vibrant on this boiled wool kimono jacket.
Mad For Plaid…
Shifting gears…another big fall trend this year is the plaid jacket. While I love anything plaid, sometimes the menswear aspect is a bit overpowering. The magenta piping on this budget-friendly jacket is a nice detail that adds a feminine element.
Fall Colors You Can Wear Now
If (like me) you’re champing at the bit to begin incorporating some fall color into your outfits, accessories are one way to go.
Footwear can be a great way to add an accent color to an outfit. I have these slingback flats in black, and love them so much I got the rust as well. The color is gorgeous and saturated, and these are a comfortable option that can transition into fall.
If you’re more of a ballet flats gal, these are also very comfortable and available in several colors, including this dark green.
I love, love, love the shape of this bag! And the wineberry color (“Tart”) goes with everything.
The warm tones in this French Kande “cafe-au-lait” stone mix will look smashing with fall colors.
