With the beginning of autumn comes the introduction of a new color palette that reflects the changing leaf colors, shorter days, and cooler temperatures. Ruby reds and vibrant oranges replace the hot pinks and icy blues of summer, and lately we’ve seen these new colors trends reflected on the catwalks, in the lookbooks, and all over the fashion blogs. Today, we’re paying homage to the new season with products inspired by the colors of some of our favorite autumn things.
We know, we know. It’s not Thanksgiving yet, but what would autumn be without pumpkin pie? This Double V-Neck Sweater from Express comes in an orange reminiscent of our favorite autumn dessert, and the unexpected detailing on the back gives it an understated elegance. Right now, the sweater is buy one, get one 50% off, so hop to it!
We’re also enamored with these orange Pudil Flats by Aldo. Pair them with a black pencil skirt for Halloween flair that’s safe for the office.
There are few things more inviting on a chilly autumn night than a warm, crackling bonfire. The color grey usually gets a bad name for being boring or bland, but this grey nail polish (NARS Nail Polish in Galathee from Sephora) proves to be both sophisticated enough for a fancy night out, and casual enough for a quick coffee with friends. If you’re looking for something a little more flashy, Rain Drops Nail Varnish by Illamasqua (also available at Sephora) comes in a shimmery light grey.
Labor Day marked the unofficial end of summer, and though we’re sad to see it go, we’re already looking forward to fall. In fact, we’re looking forward to it so much that we’ve rounded up a fashion preview to get you excited for the wardrobe transition that accompanies cooler temperatures and shorter days. Take a look at some of the trends we’re noticing from our favorite brands:
The last few years have been all about knee-high boots in riding and western styles, but we’re loving the lower-cut ankle boots that have been making the rounds in fashion blogs. These boots are both cute and versatile — wear them with summer dresses and bare legs now, and slip them over leggings or skinny jeans come fall. Some of our favorite styles are the Fiera double zipper booties by Aldo and the combat-inspired Towner booties by Nine West. We also like the eclectic boot styles Cupcakes and Cashmere blogger Emily Schuman highlighted in this recent post.
A classic trench coat is a must-have piece — throw one over any outfit for instant polish. Asos has a great selection of trenches at affordable prices. We like the Asos Classic Trench and Asos Skater Trench, both of which come in camel or black.
If you’ve been affected by the recent heat waves in the midwest, cozy knit sweaters are probably not at the top of your “to-buy” list right now. That being said, this Forever 21 Floral Open-Knit Top is a lighter option for early mornings or crisp evenings. For those of you living in cooler regions, we love the adorable detailing on Topshop’sKnitted Tie Back Cable Top.
