Unexpected Fashion Companions: Cheery Spring Meets Earthy Fall Colors

With  fall comes the changing of the leaves as well as the color palette in  your wardrobe.

It’s natural for your sartorial choices to take a turn  towards richer, earthier tone hues. Really, who can resist the dramatic bordeaux reds that have ruled the runways this season.

Rich chestnuts and deep  toffee browns will be getting plenty of play, but we admit that we  sometimes do miss the brighter colors more commonly associated with the  warmer seasons.  As the days get shorter and darker why not brighten up  your wardrobe by adding splashes of spring-like hues into the mix?

Why this look works: Cool mint green has the perfect airy effect and it is made season appropriate thanks to By Malene Birger’s oversized Kittia sweater. We  can’t get enough of the slouchy silhouette and love it paired with Giambattista Valli’s jacquard patchwork skirt.

The print mixed with the  earthy rust tones make this skirt a must-have for fall, and pairing it with the light knit will make for a fun unexpected combination.

The key  to pairing these two pieces together is by making sure the proportions are  balanced – mix a slouchy knit with fitted pencil skirt, and the color of the knit will not clash with the busy print of the skirt.

Topshop’s Mohair Boyfriend Coat offers a boxy fit and the camel color is definitely season appropriate.  Opening Ceremony’s Animal Print  Haircalf boots add a hip touch to this look and will look great with  just about everything in your closet.  Tangerine was THE color of spring and we’re not ready to retire this stunning color just yet.  Proenza  Schouler updates the trendy hue for fall with their PS1 suede satchel.  So soft and so perfect, you’ll want it to brighten up your wardrobe  year-round.
