What is Hot for Fall?

This summer it was all about mixing peaches with corals and electric cobalt with a sky blue. Heck we all walked around looking like flipping birds of paradise—albeit very fashionable birds of paradise! Thankfully your wise investment in all those punchy colors is going to continue providing returns come the colder months. But there are some important tips to tweak and twist the look just a bit so it looks fresh for fall.

• Just because the leaves are turning, doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to go into hibernation.Take that color that screams summer, watermelon pink for example, and pair it with a traditional fall colors like burgundy or rust.  This was seen all over the J. Crew look book, and we have to say the mixing of playful spring and summer colors with more somber fall and winter hues feels totally current.

• Don’t be afraid to layer for maximum impact. Take that tangerine sleeveless silk top from summer and let the collar pop out of a chunky navy sweater. Top with a tan trench to keep the look season-appropriate. By layering pieces you can show just a hint of that bright color while still keeping out the cold.

• If you’re looking for a singular color to zero in on, vibrant red was by far the biggest color trend on the fall runways. The hot hue was seen in Victoria Beckham, Bill Blass and BCBG’s collections. To incorporate the color into your own wardrobe, a tomato coat would be an incredible investment piece. Or if you want to start small a red bag (there’s an amazing collection of them here) will be sure to garner some compliments.
