Shades of AutumnFriday, 10 September 2010 by Ashley Turowsky
From the earthiness of khaki and camel, to vibrant shades of wine and rust- show your style in the season’s most sumptuous colors.
Camel has reigned supreme on the catwalks for the past year and this season go for mixing and matching your tones. Try matching these MIU MIU patent-leather peep-toe pumps with a Topshop Knitted Lace Back Shrug, and your gorgeous new Nutmeg Inspire Me.
This season look to earthy shades of khaki, olive, and moss green for inspiration. Try mixing with fabrics like tweed of plaid, or go full out for the military look. I love these strappy DKNY wedges, which will will break up the matchy matchy olive of these Carrera aviators and Stripe Cardigan from Topshop.
Rich, rusty orange was clocked on the catwalks of Anna Sui, where she teamed it with leopard print. Use this color to add a splash of color to blacks or blues, or combine with gold, chocolate browns, and mossy greens- get into the swing of autumn and match the foliage. Try these different shades of rust- Whistles Folded Neckline Dress, Free People Cords, and basic Topshop tee.
Deep wine hues work well in luxe fabrics such as silk and velvet- try plum or blackberry! Grad your Purple Crackle Treasure Me and match with these Topshop wrapped ball bangles. Or if you’re looking for a just bit of color, try this Cheap Monday beanie- sure to keep you looking chic in cooler weather!
