Don’t know what colors to wear this fall? Well neither did I, until I read the Fall Trends from InStyle.com. This fall Mother Nature plays a big role in our fall fashion. “Designers have delivered fall wardrobes in the universally flattering tones that surround us at this time of year,” says InStyle.com. New York Fashion Designers also reveal that this fall’s fashion colors include cooler blues, greens, and purples in their top five pick for fall colors. They also state that in addition to these that warm reds, oranges and yellows have been used in their new fall designs. "Fall is traditionally a time for subdued, quiet colors, but this season we are seeing a shift toward cool hues with bright, exciting undertones," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. "Conventional tones such as warm autumn hues, chocolate browns and steel grays are also among the fall color choices. Blue and purple tones have become staples, as illustrated by Blue Iris, one of the top 10 colors chosen by designers this season, and Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2008." I’ve seen a lot of clothing that I would say is a soft gold color. This color goes very well with navy blue. I see this soft gold color to become very popular on college campuses. Another color that I’ve been noticing is several different shades of magenta. I personally love this color. So people may think that magenta is too bright for the fall but I disagree. Though most fall colors are duller, I find magenta to be perfect for this fall. Magenta can be worn very well with black to give a sophisticated, yet young and fun look to your wardrobe. Peach is another color that is beginning to make its way this fall. Try a peach skirt for an elegant fall outfit. Chances are it’ll make you look a lot older. Here are a few tips from InStyle.com on how to wear these autumn hues, “Though nature lays one color atop another, these clothes have maximum impact when worn monochromatically. No need to pile on the accessories with these quietly luxe pieces. Need convincing? Look closely at the impeccable details.” Take advantage of these colors being around you every day. Nature and fashion have a lot in common this season. You can find clothing in these colors at all of your clothing stores. Check out Old Navy, Gap, and Kohls. You never know what beautiful autumn hues you’ll see girls wearing.
