FashionThe Fall Colors Your Closet Needs

Say goodbye to summer’s scorching heat and barely there clothing, and hello to fall fashion season! Filled with longer hemlines, layers upon layers, and a plethora of new dresses, jackets and shoes to choose from, fall is definitely our favorite season for getting dressed! When Pantone released the fall color trend report earlier this year, we just knew we had to add these fresh hues to our wardrobe. From classic neutrals to bright, bold colors, the clothing we love this fall is all about expressing yourself through color and texture. We picked out five of our favorite fall color trends featured in the color report to give you a quick cheat sheet for the must-have items in each of these trendy hues. Are you ready for a fall-inspired rainbow wardrobe? Read on for our top picks and the cutest ways to wear them!

fall color trends - red

The hottest color for fall is bright and fiery Grenadine red! From head-to-toe red to pops of the cherry hue added to neutral outfits, if you have to add an unexpected color to your closet this season, it’s this one. Stand out in a bright red jumpsuit like the Thinking Out Loud Red Backless Jumpsuit for a look that commands attention. Not “red-y” to go full monochromatic in red? Try adding it to your outfits with a pair of statement earrings, as an accent color on a printed dress or as a lacy layer underneath your favorite shirts and sweaters.

autumnmaple

In the vein of more traditional fall colors, Autumn Maple is a cozy orange shade filled with warmth, updated for 2017 with a rusty, coppery cast. It’s completely unexpected in a lacy cocktail dress, which makes the J.O.A. Kyler Burnt Orange Lace Off-the-Shoulder Dress the best choice for any of the fall occasions you want to be your best dressed and look different from everyone else in the room. Other fun ways to add this rust shade to your wardrobe include shimmery leggings paired with your fave oversize sweater; sexy, trendy tops; and soft, suede handbags with boho accents.

fall color trends - forest green

Shaded Spruce is this fall’s answer to the classic forest green. This cool green looks amazing on all skin tones and is our favorite jewel-inspired shade to incorporate into the upcoming season’s closet. Rendered in silky satin, the Let Me Entertain You Forest Green Satin Wide-Leg Jumpsuit is a chic take on a one-piece outfit for any party you’re heading to this fall. The color looks equally beautiful as a dress, whether it’s a lacy midi, a sexy maxi or a playful striped mini dress. A strappy bodysuit paired with dark denim or a flash of emerald in your earrings are subtler ways of adding this gorgeous green to whatever outfit you’re wearing.

fall color trends - blush

Blush is still happening! Whether you call it Millennial pink, Ballet Slipper (like Pantone did) or just plain, old pink, this soft, rosy shade is still hot for fall after being one of our most-loved looks for spring and summer. Add this femme color to your closet in the form of street style staples like the Melrose Blush Pink Velour Hoodie. It’s longer length and soft fabric elevate the classic hoodie style into something a little more special. Other picks for adding blush to your fall wardrobe include sexy separates, shift dresses (so cute with a denim jacket and sneaks!), and easy-to-carry handbags.

fall color trends - burgundy

It wouldn’t be a fall fashion color report without burgundy! While this hue is consistently at the top of our favorite fall color lists, this year it feels fresh and elegant in a cool-toned cast. Look for burgundy pieces with a little bit of blue undertones to bring this color into 2017, such as the Free People Simply Henley Burgundy Long Sleeve Bodysuit. Rock this color from head to toe in pretty maxi dresses and low-key jumpsuits, or pick a key piece such as a suede mini skirt or velvet sneakers to bring a little burgundy into your everyday outfits.

FashionStyling Tips for Homecoming

One of the first major things to look forward to in the start of the school year is the first dance of the year: homecoming! If you haven’t already picked out your homecoming dress, don’t worry! It shouldn’t be a daunting task and we’re here to help. Lucky for you, we’ve done the hard work and rounded up four of our bestselling homecoming dresses to show you how to style these fancy frocks while giving you some styling tips and inspiration for whatever dress you ultimately decide on.

Good Deeds Royal Blue Lace-Up Dress

Turn heads during the night in our Good Deeds Royal Blue Lace-Up Dress, which features some major lace-up back appeal and is an obvious fan fave. A laced open back, princess-seamed bodice, and full skater skirt give you the perfect fit while allowing you to move all night. Pair this fun number with our silver Queen of the Isle statement earrings and match metals with our Silver Michella Ankle Strap Heels and our Go Girl Silver Clutch.

Delicate Darling Beige and Ivory Lace Bodycon Dress

For all lace lovers who love some attention to detail, stand out in our Delicate Darling Lace Bodycon Dress, which features intricate lace and floral drama, and flatters your every curve. A halter bodice and slimming bodycon fit look great when you pair these delicate details with a ring set, our Elsi Bone Heels, and the fun Charm and Desire Sequin Clutch.

Home Before Daylight Red Dress

We’re all about red this season and we can see why our Home Before Daylight Red Dress is a homecoming hit. This tried and true fave features a fitted bodice, square neckline, scoop back, full circle skirt, and is the right amount of classic and fun. Adorn this red number with our delicate My Wish Gold Layered Choker Necklace and add some textures to your outfit with our Totally Crushin’ Light Beige Velvet Clutch. Carry this stunning red hue throughout your look with our Felora Nude Embroidered Heels, which features rose embroidered detailing and are the perfect heels to dance the night away.

Essence of Style Royal Blue Maxi Dress

Take your homecoming night to the max with our ever popular Essence of Style Royal Blue Maxi Dress. A tying apron neckline and drawstring waist give you the perfect amount of fit and flow. A side slit allows for the right amount of attention to a statement heel such as our Veda Blue Brocade Ankle Strap Heels. Pair the multi-colored floral shoes to statement earrings such as our Favorite Feature Gold and Pink Tassel Earrings and add our Go Girl Blush Clutch to complete the look.

FashionFall Bridesmaid Dresses: Our Top Three Trends

Fall weddings are more popular than ever! With cooler temps and warmer colors and tones, it’s a perfect time to say, “I do.” We’re well versed on spring and summer wedding party attire, but what are this year’s best fall bridesmaid looks? We’ve put together a guide of some of our favorite new trends for the fall wedding season. From pretty patterns to re-wearable styles (we promise), if you pick any of these lovely looks, your bridesmaids will thank you! Read through and shop our picks below.

MOODY PATTERNS:

Mood Prints Bridesmaid Dresses

Want your bridal party to make a statement? Take the spring trend of light whimsical floral dresses and make it fall worthy by adding in some richer hues. While florals and patterns make for a more daring ensemble, they’re an easy way to create a bridesmaid look worth remembering. Patterns can also help unify the color palette you’ve chosen for the flowers and decorations, adding visual interest to the perfectly coordinated look you’ve put together. In simple silhouettes, these dresses are definitely wear-again worthy!

LACE:

Lace Bridesmaid Dresses

Feeling feminine? Lace has always been a bridal go-to, making it a perfect choice for a bridesmaid dress! Lace provides elegant, feminine detailing, while also being neutral enough to match the rest of the wedding party’s attire and the venue’s decor. We’re loving lace in cooler hues for the upcoming months for a more polished look.

DUSTY ROSE:

Dusty Rose Bridesmaid Dresses

Blush tones are one of the biggest trends we’ve seen this year for bridesmaid dresses, but the color can feel a little spring-y for a cooler weather event. To make blush tones a bit more fall wedding friendly, opt for a richer hue of blush…dusty rose! Dusty rose compliments moody fall florals, while also being flattering for all skin tones. Rich colors like burgundy, navy blue, emerald and deep amethyst are also great for a fall wedding party, but dusty rose is absolutely our fave!
