If you ask me what my favorite things about fall are, I’ll definitely say Halloween and Thanksgiving! But of course, the toasty and warm colors that I get to wear on a daily basis are a close second.
Although chilly weather calls for thicker layers, the outfits that we wear definitely do not have to be boring. Read on to see how you can use different autumn neutrals to make a fashion statement.
Ivory is one of the most classic fall colors. It’s a very soft neutral that works for the whole season, since it’s super versatile and easy to style with just about anything, from jeans to skirts, or leggings. Since ivory is a soft color, I usually like to pair it with knit skirts for a more feminine look.
Brown is another autumn staple. This color is darker than ivory or tan, and it’s perfect for the later fall months, especially around Thanksgiving. For family gatherings that involve lots of food, I usually opt for a sweater dress, so that I can enjoy the festivities without worrying about my jeans being too tight. To add a little chic factor to the whole ensemble, opt for a pair of knee-high boots in the same brown shade so that you can create a monochromatic look. To give the whole outfit that oomph factor, a handbag in a statement color will do the trick.
Olive is the perfect transition color. Though it’s technically still a shade of green, olive is much more muted, with hints of warmth, making it one of the most versatile colors to wear if styled right. Although it may be tempting to just grab an olive sweater or cardigan and pair it with jeans, I usually gravitate towards olive bottoms, especially skirts and trousers. It’s not a typical color for bottoms, but it adds an instant sophisticated charm to an ensemble. To keep your look neutral, try opting for a top in white, black, or ivory.
Last but not least: gray! This color may typically be associated with sweatshirts or crewnecks, but it’s actually one of the most stylish yet versatile tones to have in a wardrobe, especially for the fall. A gray coat is another staple since it can be paired with any outfit. Gray is a cool-toned color, so it’s a great way to make an all-black or all-white ensemble pop.
That wraps up all of the ways that I style my favorite fall neutrals. Which colors are part of your autumn color palette, and how do you style them?
