I love all the colors this time of year, but sometimes it can get a little overwhelming when deciding how to pair fall neutrals with those classic fall colors. So I wanted to share a few simple ways to add some of the most common fall colors into your looks this season.

Decide what fall neutrals work best for you. Everyone has a color or two that just naturally works best with their skin tone and hair color. For me, I love using grey as my fall neutral because it really highlights the blonde in my hair, and it doesn’t wash me out (my skin isn’t extremely tan this time of year). Women with darker hair tend to look really great in nudes and creams because there is more of a contrast between between darker hair and lighter clothing.

Start with your neutral pieces. Your neutrals will make up the majority of your look, so picking quality neutrals is important. I always start with the “bottoms” (pants, skirt, dress) I want to wear, and then I decide what colors work best with that piece. I tend to look for neutrals in my tops and booties because it gives you more options for wearing them again and again with multiple outfits. I do have my share of bold, colorful shoes and tops, but starting with neutrals this time of year allows you to be more intentional about adding fall colors to your look.

Add a pop of color. This is the fun part. This is where you get to find bold statement pieces that incorporate your favorite fall colors. I loved this rust colored cardigan right away because I knew it would stand out against my neutrals. The key here is not overdoing the fall colors in one look. You want to think about layering pieces (like tops, sweaters, and jackets) and accessories (like booties, bags, and scarves) as a means to incorporating the prettiest colors of fall. If you love maroon for fall, for example, one way you could tie it into your look is with a scarf that has a maroon color scheme, and wear that over a cream colored sweater. The best part about adding pops of color, rather than making your whole look decked in fall colors, is you can incorporate all the colors you want throughout the season by simply adding a different colorful piece to each look you wear.
