It’s time to put the summer pastels and hot pinks into storage for next year and bring out the colors that go so well with autumn. This year the classic colors are the must-haves: camel, grey, purple, red, and navy should figure prominently in your wardrobe. And the best thing is, you can mix and match most of them for a great individual look. Here are some examples.
The Angora Boyfriend Cardigan from Victoria’s Secret is a wardrobe staple you’ll want in multiple colors. It’s long, shawl-collared, and double-breasted, yet made in a slimming cut that won’t add bulk. This will go with everything from skinny jeans to mini skirts with opaque tights to your favorite sheath dress for the office.
Rib and Cable Knit Over-the-Knee Socks from Urban Outfitters come in purple, grey, and black. They’re not only comfy and warm, they’ll work great with lace-up boots, riding boots, and girly oxford shoes, and complement both slacks and skirts.
Bergdorf Goodman offers a purple Sculpted Jeweled Clutch that adds a touch of class to a feminine top and distressed jeans, or a dressy dress, taking you from a Saturday browsing flea markets to drinks and dinner with that special someone.
Red practically works as a neutral for fall and winter, and it certainly adds a welcome splash of color to gray days. These Steven by Steve Madden Satin Peep Toe Pumps are available in the perfect red and feature a rhinestone flower detail. Smart with slacks, and sexy with your favorite dress!
Everyone loves blue because everyone looks good in it, and if you’re looking for something a little different, check out the Gemma Dress in a blue and black zebra-esque print. It’s made of silk, so it feels great as well as looking great, and can be worn on or off-shoulder. It’s the perfect excuse to wear those over-the-knee boots you’ve been wanting to wear, too!
