Bright Color in Fall: It's a "Do"
Style the hot pink, saffron and teal pieces you wore all summer long straight into autumn with these tips from the runway
With fall just around the corner, we're programmed to pack up our short shorts, sandals and summer brights and trade them in for sweaters, boots and considerably more subdued colors like beige, navy, gray and black. But the fall collections of top designers show it's still cool to wear bright pops of color in fall. Instead of stowing your pinks, teals and yellows for next year, mix them with fall's traditional cool-down colors to create a runway-ready look that's completely on-trend. Keep these summer staples in your wardrobe rotation as the temperature cools down.
Keep: Your Punchy Mani
The cheery nail polish shades you gravitated toward in summer, like cobalt blue, sunny saffron and bright orchid, are perfect for playing up the camel, beige, black and gray outerwear we layer in fall. Take a cue from the runways and try geometric nail art for a sophisticated look.
Keep: Your Bright Minidress
Instead of exiling your flirty frocks to the back of your closet, layer a flouncy minidress or summer shift over dark tights or under chunky sweaters. Oversize scarves and dark outerwear also help transition the pieces into fall.
Keep: Your Attention-Grabbing Bags
Don't be afraid to accessorize neutral outfits with accessories that stop traffic. Stash all your belongings in a bright yellow shoulder bag or cobalt tote to easily inject some color into your fall look.
Keep: Your Daring Eyeliner
You don't have to give up makeup looks that make your eyes pop just because the pool party invites have plummeted. The bold aqua eyeliner looks from summer are a great way to brighten up your face when the weather starts to cool down.
