How to Style Outfits with the Fall Colors in Fashion

If you read my report about fall fashion colors 2021, you know fall is all about an exciting mix of traditional fall colors and saturated brights.  It’s definitely different, and part of the fun is going to be how you mix them. Here are some ideas on how to create cute outfits with the latest fall colors in fashion.

1. Mix a Print with Denim

The easiest way to dip your toe into all the new brights is to wear a colorful print top with denim. For example, red is in for fall, but not a bright poppy red. It’s more of a warm brick red, which is easier to wear. However, many women are still a little shy about red in general. So a great way to tone down the boldness of red is to wear a red print blouse like this with a pair of jeans.

This pretty blouse reads red, but the print makes it less aggressive than an all-red top. Jeans also lower the intensity,  give this outfit a confident but more laid-back red vibe.

2. Add Pops of Color with Accessories

Accessories are an excellent way to incorporate the new fall colors and turn heads. Just pick a brighter color from your dress and go! I love the warmth of these earthy, rust-colored suede sandals.  The gorgeous over-the-shoulder bag also helps pull the subtle rust out of this neutral-colored dress and makes it pop. Sure, you could wear this with black accessories, but the shot of color as an accent is what makes it modern.

2. Color Block

If you love color, then why not try color-blocking a fall outfit?  Blue, yellow, rust even a bit of gray combine to create a modern, artsy color-blocked look. Go all out and have some fun with a bright shoe. This is a playful, youthful look for the gal who loves to dress creatively.

4. Combine Neutrals

If you are someone who prefers quieter colors and a classic understated look, there’s something in this year’s color palette for you too.  In addition to all the crayon brights we are seeing, there are also some elegant neutrals that can be combined into some very chic outfits. Here, olive and gray are mixed in an eyecatching combo that is conservative but also very fresh.

The gorgeous knit booties add a pattern and tie the whole look together; otherwise, this outfit could be too classic, which can be boring.   I think these knit booties create personality and make the outfit!
