How to fall into fall with earth tones

I don’t always like fall colors in clothing, but don’t mind earth tones. The colors I don’t like are usually the ones that start looking like a muddy version of the original color. I usually refer to these as baby poop yellow or baby puke orange. Or baby dukey green. Bleh. I do like olive green, though, and there is a difference between olive green and a more putrid version of the color. Ha.

The key is picking out colors that don’t look too much like something the cat dragged in. Here, I paired a light shimmery gold top with olive green faux suede pants and a brown puffer vest and added a few pops of color with the purse and dusty rose tennis shoes, complete with bling on the toes.

Mix in some fall leaves for extra fun! Whoohoo!

As always, thank you for stopping by and happy fall.

How to keep pretty colors in your fall wardrobe

Do you ever notice how fall colors in clothing get a bit, well, ugly during this time of year? I mean, how can they be so pretty out in nature and so awful in the store? You start seeing baby puke yellow, poop green, muddy orange all mixed in with brown to make a putrid fall color palette.

Enough, I say! Let’s try to make fall as pretty in our clothing color schemes as the colors are the rest of the year.

Royal blue peplum top, TJ Maxx; Leopard print pants, TJ Maxx; red booties, old, gifted to me by Sole Society; Betsey Johnson cat ear sunglass, old, Marshall’s; leather jacket, old; similar here. Colorblock handbag, given to me.

A few ways to keep fall beautiful:

  • Choose bold colors that pop.
  • Don’t mix everything with brown
  • Mimic nature
  • Be different
  • Just say no to color combos that look like something your cat just barfed up.

 

Thank you for your attention to this very important matter. If we all work together, we can make our fall wardrobes beautiful again.

Happy fall, ya’ll!
