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.

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.

FashionHomecoming Dress Preview with Lulus

While going back to school is the last thing we want to be thinking about right now, one exciting part of getting back in the daily grind is thinking about homecoming! It’s the first major back-to-school event, which means it’s the perfect time to show off your new-school-year-new-you aesthetic. Revamping your wardrobe for a fresh start? Cement your style status with a gorgeous dress that embodies your updated look. Already know what works for you? Keep your image on top of it’s game with a dress that totally suits your personal taste. To get you thinking about how you’ll express yourself at the homecoming dance, see our homecoming dress picks below and shop the full collection for even more style inspo!

Short Homecoming Dresses

Short Homecoming Dress

Perhaps the most common homecoming dress style, and for good reason, short dresses show off your legs and are versatile enough to be worn again and again after the dance. For a look that feels totally fresh, try a white dress with an off-the-shoulder neckline, like our Season of Fun White Off-the-Shoulder Skater Dress. Paired with rhinestone accessories and strappy heels, this type of dress can look glam, but if you mix it up with some block heels and statement boho jewelry you can wear the same dress with a totally different feel. Short dresses are incredibly easy to re-wear, because they come in so many styles and cuts. From fit and flare skater dresses to sweet shifts, short homecoming dresses are an easy pick to fit into any wardrobe.

Bodycon Homecoming Dresses

Bodycon Homecoming Dress

Built to show off every curve, bodycon dresses are a sleek and sexy pick for the homecoming dance! Since the general structure of bodycon dresses is similar across the board, make sure you stand out by picking fun details, like the one-sleeved ruffle look on our Life is But a Dream Black One-Shoulder Bodycon Dress. Other fun details you might try include cutouts, daring necklines, and slits in the skirt. Feeling like a more classic cut of dress is calling to you? Keep it unique with your styling by selecting accessories and shoes that match your personal style. The same black dress can look totally different depending on who is wearing it and how they put the outfit together!

Long Homecoming Dresses

Long Homecoming Dress

Totally glamorous or boho-chic, we’ve seen more and more girls wearing long dresses to homecoming and we love how dramatic and stylish they look! While more people tend to look for a short dress for homecoming, if you are looking for something a little different, a long dress will set you apart and give you an instant boost. For something on the more glamorous side, look no further than our Girl in the Mirror Light Beige Beaded Maxi Dress. With a built-in rhinestone collar neckline, all you have to add are a great pair of shoes and a fun clutch to complete the look. Of course, there are tons of different types of long homecoming dresses that can fit any style, from sweetly romantic off-the-shoulder dresses to daring plunge necklines in a fabulous print – all you have to do is pick the one that suits you perfectly!
