Are you feeling a change in the air? Do you have a sudden urge to break out your favorite football sweatshirt and a pumpkin latte? Summer is glorious but the sights, activities, smells and colors of fall are calling my name. This week I’ll be in Las Vegas for the annual Paparazzi Convention. (EEK! I’m a little bit beyond excited!) We will get first looks at the fall line and even get a chance to bring the accessories home. If you want to see the goods come join me in The Parlor.
Fall Colors – Comforting with a Strike of Color
The colors in this season’s palette invoke warmth and comfort. The shades are easy on the eyes and the soul. Marina blue, golden lime, and ballet slipper give a sudden surprise, however, and allow you to really express yourself. Mixing and matching two or three fall colors will give completely different feelings to your outfit.
You can expect to see the earthier fall colors showcased in plaids, fringed vests and other textures of the season. this season’s greens and browns will make an earthy and warm background to the striking brighter colors. For example, use a bold grenadine accessory with butter rum and golden lime to really give a pop to your outfit.
If you’re just not quite ready to give up the rich hues of summer you can make the transition to fall colors very slowly. Pair a brighter summer shade with two from autumn. Navy peony and butter rum are beautiful mixed with the bright blue of summer. What other shades could you mix and match to make the transition less painful? (ha!)
If you tend to opt more for feminine patterns and colors you will not be disappointed with ballet slipper, neutral gray and shaded spruce. Look for these fall colors in darker floral prints and plaids. Mix these a classic Paparazzi blockbuster necklace and you will have a magnificent outfit in minutes.
On the opposite end of the spectrum from feminine and soft is the edgier and bolder mixture of marina, grenadine and golden lime. In this combination we take the bolder fall colors and mix them with just 1 more earthy tone. This color combination will bring out your fierce inner spirit. This pairing will be seen in solid tops as well as in patterns.
Express Yourself with Fall Colors
I didn’t go through all the potential color combinations for fall 2017 but highly encourage you to experiment. Will you stay true to your soft and feminine typical style or risk a bold statement this fall? Which of these colors is your favorite?
