Hi everyone! Fall is a time that makes me feel grounded and content, time to enjoy and appreciate what I have and make plans to learn something new. There are so many interesting things to look forward to: theater season is kicking off, new art movies coming out, or maybe a screening of my favorite classics in an old theater where amber liquors can be sipped while watching an Italian classic from 1950s. It is during crisp days of fall that I feel like dressing up just a bit: a new scarf, a vintage bag, gloves in sophisticated colors..Colors put a spell on me since I can remember – this fall there are so many reasons to be excited about.
1)First off, the fall color palette is unexpected: along with grounding earth tones like sharkskin grey, taupe or lush green I also noticed the exuberant pops of vibrant colors like sky blue or pinkish purple.
2)Secondly it’s how you dress it- no need for the matchy-matchy belt-purse-shoes ensemble. I am a big believer in minimalistic approach that showcases sophistication through well chosen pieces.
3)Finally- for me, trying on new colors is adventurous and liberating. Sometimes it’s a bit like leaping off into a new world of possibilities.
Here are a few colors I look forward to trying this fall
Pair-able with almost any fall color, bright or muted. A color that the rest of the palette can literally and theoretically rest on Femme fatale effect- bright red or blood red lipstick, light eyeliner, nothing else.
Pop of color- I adore pairing grey and light blue or cobalt blue.
Rich and elegant, vibrant, sophisticated but sexy and bold at the same time. This shade displays a brightness, panache and depth of color that elevates it from more natural greens and elevates the overall elegance woven through this season’s collections.
Femme Fatale effect: chunky southwestern turquoise bracelet. Screams self-confidence and personal taste. Black above the elbow opera gloves, plus you can make a big show putting them on and taking them off.
I know, this isn’t a typical fall color but it works. Here is why:
Elegant, feminine and chic with serene and weightless quality to it (hence the name airy). Perfectly complements clear sky of a fall day. Just so pretty.
Wear it with : Green, taupe, burgundy or white. Try some pretty magenta lipstick for an extra special touch.
Exciting, isn’t it? Here is a full Fall 2016 color line up. What colors inspire you? Drop me a line and let me know- I love hearing from all of you!
