Fall 2016 Color Report from Marcellas Reynolds
When people think fall they often think of muted colors. You’ve spent your summer in luscious fruity pastel, brights, head to toe white, and perhaps even neon, all of which had major moments this Spring and Summer. But now as the weather cools we begin to think darks…
Not this season. Fall/Winter 2016 is just as yummy as the summer it follows. Jewel tones, which look amazing on everyone, take center stage. Think wine, burgundy, bordeaux. It’s a dark rosy red and it turns up in Fall’s prettiest prints! It’s super luxe and rich looking this season.
Dark Rosy Reds, Wines, Burgundy, Bordeaux
Cobalt blue never goes out of style! It’s just a great color that always catches the eye. A few seasons ago I actually did a video dedicated to cobalt. I suggest pairing cobalt with black, one of the chicest pairings ever!
Grey is the new black!
With the “menswear as womenswear” trend that hit the Fall 2016 runways came the reemergence of pinstripes & grey! Yes! Both look super modern right now. Grey works with black, navy and oh my gosh is great with camel! If you have to invest in a new suit this season I’m torn between a navy or black pinstripe pantsuit, or a great grey skirt suit! Wear it with a crisp white shirt and wine colored pumps!
How about some Non-Color?
And last, but by no means least, my fave color is a non-color. Ivory for Fall/Winter 2016 slays! Whether you call it ivory, cream, or winter white, nothing looks chicer in cooler weather. There’s an easy coolness to ivory. A purity. It’s a shade that works on everyone! If I had to pick just 1 must have piece from the Midnight Velvet catalog (and this season it’s so hard to pick just one fave) it would have to be the Sleeveless Trench in ivory. It’s a hot remix on a modern classic you can wear a million ways!
Add Colorful Accessories
Look for accessories like shoes & purses in wine, the perfect way to add a pop of color to any outfit.
