DD's Style File - Fall Brights

As much as it's a sign of things to come - i.e., bone chilling winter, I do have a fondness for fall. I enjoy being able to see the leaves on the trees change hues and they way it lights up the skyline. It's just that all the trouble starts once they begin to lose their foliage.

Fall is definitely synonymous with deeper richer hues, like currants, hunter greens, chocolates and golds. What it certainly doesn't mean in that you have to trade in your brights just because the temperatures cool down.

If you've come to know me at all, you know I love me some bright colors. So instead of trading in my summerish colors, I just go for richer jewel tones. Case in point, this saturated raspberry blazer paired against a deep teal dress made for a perfect seasonal appropriate pairing.

Dress: old (similar, similar, similar, similar)
Blazer: The Limited - sold out (similar)
Necklace: gift from my mom (similar, similar, similar)
Earrings: Kate Spade

I kept my base shade all within the similar family, my dress, earrings and necklace were all varying shades of turquoise/teal, but I aimed to have the darkest shade of that family take up the greatest amount of space.

Incidentally, I wore one of my fav lipsticks, Wet n' Wild Sugar Plum Fair, which was also happened to be complimentary to my color palette.

As we delve into the chillier whether, I plan to try some color pairings that are new to me, in order to fresh things up  a bit. Like trying more jewel pairings, some winter pastels, and maybe even a mixture of both!

I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!

I'd love to hear some of your favorite colors to wear in fall (I know basic black is always a classic)!
