8 Simple Ways to Incorporate Fall Colors Into Your Wardrobe

The big question here would be: What exactly are Fall colors? Autumn’s colors are a blend of jewel tones that range from warm to cool in color temperature. When it comes to Fall fashion, this is the time you’ll see colors that resemble amber, sand, fresh orange, classic blue, forest green, red rust, and white nougat. This makes it one sartorial reason why Fall is such an exciting time of the year.

With accessible choices and easy steps, here are some of the simplest ways to incorporate Autumn’s colors into your capsule wardrobe this season. 

1. Style Tip: Colored pant or skirt

Rare are the times you’ll be in the mood for a bottom piece that isn’t black or dark navy. And if there’s a season to get away with a colored set of pants or a bold colored skirt, it would be now. Spruce up that weekend look with a pop of bold colors here and there, or give your office look an upgrade with a sleek pencil skirt. Pair it up with a stylish functional accessory to balance your outfit.

2. Style Combination: Mustard with denim

It simply doesn’t get any easier than this. Going for mustard is not only a way to tone down from the bright yellow summer shade, but it’s also such a versatile color to pair with. Pairing mustard with denim is a great way to add more life and personality to your usual white t-shirt and jean casual look. For a quick day-to-night change, start your day in sneakers and slip in heels for the evening. And for last-minute plans, accessorize with statement earrings, apply that bold lip, and you’re good to go.

3. Style Combination: The printed dress with white boots

Dresses can take you from summer to fall in just a change of footwear. No matter the length, you can seamlessly style them with denim jeans, leather leggings, or as is and with a belt to accentuate your shape. They’re chic, comfortable, and able to make you look put together without all the fuss. Pair them with white boots and a chunky cardigan as you run off the door.

4. Style Tip: Throw on dresses in Fall colors

When in doubt, simply throw on a dress. There are days we get so busy that we can’t be bothered to pick out a cohesive, stylish look from head to toe. A perfect way to get around this fashion dilemma is by throwing on a classy dress in fall colors and prints. Did you know that clogs are a big shoe trend this year? These printed dresses go beautifully with clogs, tan suede ankle boots, or a tan over-the-knee boot. Chic!

5. Style Tip: Invest in jewel-toned cardigans

Perhaps, the minimalist in you can try this out every once in a while. Jewel-toned cardigans are must-have pieces in your Fall wardrobe because it enhances a look almost instantly. Layer this on top of a monochrome look for the office, or add it to your errands look for the day. Maybe you can even wear it over a print dress or tucked under a satin skirt with your go-to booties. 

6. Style Combination: Shades of tan with pops of color

Tan goes well with almost anything. It’s subtle enough to be a staple, and since it’s so flexible, it can even be played up in prints, namely, leopard. Adding a pop of color breaks up the routine and instantly adds flair to any outfit. Pair tan with bright pink, teal, and even red or purple. Switch up the different Fall colors on other days to have all the fun for the week.

Turtlenecks are not just suitable for colder days and nights, they’re also an ideal piece for layering. Stay warm, comfy, and chic in cool turtleneck pieces in different colors and interesting prints. Wear them under dresses, vests, and blazers for the office.

Last, but not the least: Try the full-on tonal dressing look. Tonal dressing is all about knowing what glues together seamlessly. There’s a certain art to putting together different pieces in the same color family. For the Fall season, try your hand in tonal dressing with base colors such as tan, brown, olive green, white, and grey. Once you decide on your base color, this is when you mix textures, patterns, and solids to create one cohesive look.

Live Life in Color

Sometimes, you just have to get out there and see what’s in store for you (literally). Prioritizing closet space for your staple neutrals seems like the only way to go, but keep in mind that colors offer a fresh way to amp up your style. Wear colors for your tops, bottoms, and accessories to spice up your Fall looks.

If you’re used to wearing neutrals and darker tones, begin with trying on colors in deeper shades - like red in the form of burgundy. Then, gradually transition to brighter and bolder colors whenever you feel like it. Slowly but surely, you’ll be ready to switch up your personal style.
