So I have been talking a lot about the upcoming and fast approaching Fall season!! Not that I would ever rush the heat away, but there is something that is just making me too excited for wearing cable knits and watching a my university team play football every Saturday afternoon. I can almost smell the crisp Thanksgiving air…okay, I may be getting a tad off track!
Fall is my favourite season, and when August rolls around, I go into wardrobe planning mode. I map out what the trends are, I take a good, hard look at my closet and I go pin-crazy! Well, today I want to talk about this season’s colour palette. Mainly because I want to talk about all these cute and fun trends, but also because I am absolutely giddy over these colours!! They are so unique and look so amazing together, that I just can’t stand it.
Olive Green – this colour is high and trend this season, but I have always been a huge fan of this colour. This is apart of the same colour family as military green…and (stretching it a bit) even a dark green khaki colour. But olive truly is the perfect shade. I love how it reps the earthy tones, it totally brings out the Fall vibes and it really goes with a lot of the colours of the Fall season! It is right in style and I am totally on board!!
Wine – I actually just learned the actual colour word for this amazing colour! I used to call it maroon or burgandy, but if you think about it, calling this colour “wine” is completely suitable. Burgandy can have a brown undertone to it and Maroon has more of a red undertone – wine encompasses brown, red and purple all in one…making for this dark moody Fall shade! I just looove it!!
Camel – this may just be the colour of the season!! Camel is so easy to combine with other colours. It is absolutely a neutral and can add the perfect touch to an outfit. Not only does this colour work in an accessory, it even works as the base of the outfit. A large, oversized camel coloured sweater paired with wine accessories is the perfect combo! There is really so much you can do with this colour, which is why it is a staple this season.
Over the next couple of weeks, I am going to be showcasing my picks for each of these colours…so stay tuned for that!! It’s sad but summer is slipping away and Fall will takeover in full swing…can’t say I don’t want the summer to stay…but I am almost ready for Fall (a few more items to pick up) and I have to say, it is going to be a stylish season!!
How do you feel about these three colour staples? What are you envisioning for this upcoming Fall season? Let me know in the comments below!!
