On My Style Radar: Summer to Fall Transition Clothing…

So sue me… I’m a Fall-ophile. 🍂 I love fall colors and styles. I’m always eager to start incorporating bits of fall into my wardrobe long before summer has begun to relinquish its grip.

Amber and spice tones are showing up everywhere in fall collections. I was delighted that my Spring palette actually includes some versions of these. So (fingers crossed 🤞) I might be able to fill a few wardrobe gaps this season.

Fall Colors You Can Wear Now

Here are a few pieces you can wear now while it’s still warm, that hint at a new season and crisper days on the way. (Many of these are offered in a range of colors, so you may find some cooler-toned options as well.)

    I am so sad. These “fall: colors are alas, not my colors! I hate it when some authority somewhere picks colors for the season that I cannot wear! I am a blue winter, wearing primary colors, pink, purple, royal blue, cherry red, white and black. No brown, no orange, no spice., you get the picture. So I won’t be buying anything this fall. Heck, I don’t need any more sweaters since I live in Florida!

    Ditto for me. I’m a blonde gone completely white and browns and golds are not my colors at all. I don’t even like to look at them. Guess I’ll be saving some money this fall, not a bad thing!

    LOL, I’m another winter who will be wearing my old wardrobe of black, navy, crimson . . . And walking past clothing stores that I can tell in a glance are full of only “fall” colours. But it’s a good way to build up the travel budget!

    As a soft autumn I love these colors! I find them very pleasing to the eye. But for those with other palettes I’m confident stores will carry other colors also. If you hit on many of these featured items they come in several colors. Plenty of shopping for all! Thank you, Susan, for showing us new trends.

    I’m also one who cannot wear typical “fall” season colors. I experience dismay every year about this time – HOWEVER – for all the others who feel the same way, just wait a month or two and we will begin to see many of our colors appearing in winter clothing in the stores and online.

    So happy to see French Kande items in yellow gold finish! Although I adore their designs, I stopped browsing their website a while back because their metal and stone choices would not look good on me. These gold plated pieces are lovely, and I’m so glad you included them!

    I am a fair skinned redhead so fall is my season! Susan I agree with you, the fall palette is beautiful and autumn in northern California is stunning. Thank you for all the fabulous options.

    I especially like it when you share colors for all the seasons and also identify the style the item is suited for. I am pretty sure that I am a Natural Classic Summer so I really appreciate it when what is showcased helps to identify where it belongs. You have a great eye and all of us can benefit from that! Thanks

    I am a fair-skinned redhead, and fall colors are not for me. I am a pure spring. I do have a handbag in a cognac color. However.A

    Thanks Susan! I was shopping last weekend with my niece, who works at a shop called Marine Layer. Have you heard of them? She gets a fantastic discount, so invited me to have a look around. They skew younger and more “surf/prep” for me, but I spotted this jacket and it looks like something you might take a look at it. It’s cropped and in a pretty mustard bronze kind of color. Might not be yellow enough for you, but it’s very gamine! It’s called the Oslo Jacket in Cashew. It’s soft and a good weight for us here in CA.

      Ooh, that is fun. Sort of “So Cal Gamine!”

        Exactly! As usual, you nailed it. 🙂

    I happen to have the Naturalizer green loafers and they are not only comfortable but the heel is fabulous. The shoe is very luxe looking and the green is lovely. A bit dark for a spring but will be just fine with jeans.

    For all the winters out there, I think cognac brown goes very well with light blue as well as with light grey and with white. It doesn’t have to be a dominant color, rather an accent to spice it up.
