Today we are discussing your “not so basic” colors to incorporate into your Fall wardrobe this year. Everyone loves a good rust, mustard, and plaid for the season, which are ALL great choices! But we want to give you babes a little more options in choosing your clothing this season, and maybe you want to experiment a little! Well in these colors, you will definitely be turning heads. So to get right on it, here are our top 3 colors that will surprise you for your Fall wardrobe and how to incorporate them, no matter your style.
1. Emerald Green
We know army green, olive, and camo are huge for Fall wardrobes, but why not take it a little bit further with Emerald? This surprising color was all the rage back in 2013 as Pantone’s color of the year, but we feel it’s time for a comeback! Not only does emerald evoke feelings of calmness, serenity, rejuvenation, and being one with nature, it is also the color used to align the heart chakra. Located in the center of the chest, the heart chakra is the wellspring of love. Who doesn’t want to radiate love and warmth while looking fierce in their favorite Fall piece? Our favorite emerald piece to incorporate into your Fall wardrobe is the FreePeople Calico Trapeze Dress! There’s so many ways you can wear this dress! The laser-cut lace along the neck and bottom hemline gives it just a girly enough feel, but pair with a leather jacket and boots and you can still look cool girl chic. You could totally go with a more “basic” look paired with a denim jacket and cognac or nude booties. And if you’re a little sportier, or like to just look chic while running errands, a pair of white vans and a cardigan wrapped around the waist is a great “on the run” look! Whether your style is more NYC or Cali girl, you can make both work for you in this dress.
2. Pale Pink
Everyone is always looking for ways to transition their clothing to different seasons. No one wants to have to keep all their clothes in the bottom of their drawer just to get lost when the next season comes along. We have seen a trend of designers straying away from the “conventional colors” the past few years like when pink was all over the runway for Fall/Winter back in 2014, but we can always use a little reminder that color does NOT determine season! Pale pink is one of those colors that actually go well with a lot of Fall colors, even if it is not itself considered one. While pink is the color of romance and femininity, when styled right, pink can have some edge. Think army green jacket, pale pink basic tee, and dark denim. What’s even better is if the pale pink already comes with those colors! Our Twirl Wrap Skirt is our favorite Fall transition piece because it has a daisy pattern mixed with mustard yellow, grays, and greens to easily pair with an army jacket and booties for Fall. If you’re more into the cozy look, throw on an oversized cardigan instead! Another, but more subtle way to incorporate this color, is to find a pattern that is a more conventional Fall color, but has pale pink shades in it! Our Dolly Smocked Dress is great for that because it comes in a sage green with pale pink flowers, but when a cardigan and sneaks are paired with it, it’s instantly a Fall fave! However you incorporate this color, don’t forget the number one fashion rule, OWN it honey.
One of our favorite colors for summer was Coral! It’s so flattering on so many skin types, and is just a fun and flirty color! Coral creates warmth and because it is derived from the ocean, we had to have it here at the beach (duh)! Not only does it remind us of the sea, it is also used to protect against negative energies, who doesn’t need that every now and then? Incorporating coral into your Fall wardrobe is super simple! Whether it’s an all over coral like in our Kindred Button Dress or incorporated into a pattern like our Fever Mini Dress, transitioning these into Fall is effortless. The Kindred Button dress is the perfect dress for the season because its tee style is casual enough for pumpkin picking, but can be dressed up for date night as well! This dress would be so FIERCE paired with trendy white leather booties and a black denim jacket for a night out, or if that's not your style, pair her with white sneakers for a more casual, everyday look. Mini dresses like our Fever Mini are another great item to transition into Fall with just a little bit of effort. An over the knee boot is the perfect way to get a mini dress into next season with a cropped cardigan! Whatever your style, coral is a color to not shy away from this season.
Which color are you dying to try this season? Whatever it is, don’t let the season define your color palette this year, be BOLD! Life's too short to not be unapologetically you, so wear what you want when you want, and don't apologize to anyone for it!
