Which Colors to Watch for Fall 2017
Having a bland wardrobe is the worst way to start the season. It is easy to feel exasperated when faced with the abyss that is your wardrobe; just because it’s getting colder and the days are darker, it doesn’t mean you have to shy away from color. Embrace a bit of color, and turns heads with this selection of the trendiest colors for fall 2017.
Bright red has made a huge comeback on the Fall/Winter catwalks, with amazing designers like Max Mara (pictured) and Givenchy making it the talking point of their shows. Red will instantly brighten up your wardrobe, and is easy to wear with black for those girls who can’t quite face wearing head-to-toe red. For a 60s vibe, why not team it with pastel pink?
Lilac is the perfect choice for ladies who love a classic yet feminine look. Lilac can add sophistication and instantly elevate an outfit. To wear the color casually, a lilac sweater styled with a khaki skort will give you an outfit straight off the catwalk. If you are looking for occasionwear, Ralph & Russo show us how to rock lilac in a gorgeous lilac gown, proving that the color is playful yet chic.
Khaki has been on the catwalks for years, but that doesn’t mean we are getting bored of it! A khaki boyfriend coat will go with everything in your wardrobe, and as it is a color that never goes out of style, you will never get bored of it. This wool coat from Dolce & Gabbana is the ideal balance of smart/casual—its blazer-like collar makes you look smart and put together but the patches bring out a more playful and childlike side. You can wear it with an LBD to dress it up, or with straight leg jeans and a casual tee for everyday.
Sky blue may seem a bit too light for the season, but it is one of the hottest colors right now! It is a huge hit with luxury favorites Markus Lupfer (pictured), Maje and Versace. If you don’t want to overwhelm your look, start with a frilled sky blue shirt, that can be paired with a leather skirt, or layered under a sleeveless dress. Sky blue will lighten your outfits and bring out your glowing end-of-summer tan too!
Like khaki, camel has been on the catwalks for a while, but that doesn’t mean it’s a color you shouldn’t experiment with. You may have seen this dress on Selena Gomez earlier this year, proving that sweater dresses can be worn all through the year. The asymmetric hem makes it unique, and layered over a red shirt makes the color look richer. A camel skirt, whether it be in suede or not, is the perfect way to kick start your camel obsession. Tuck in a red or burgundy collared shirt for a retro vibe.
