Do Not Miss Color Trends of the Season: Fall/Winter 2013
The runways are hot with upcoming, seasonal trends for the second half of 2013. In contrast to the vibrant hues of summer, a sultrier palette is taking front row in the style world. Show off your keen fashion sense by taking advantage of Macys end of summer sales, Kohls coupons and other great savings opportunities to incorporate these “do not miss color trends” into your wardrobe.
50 Shades of… Green??
Emerald, moss, military, jade… you name it, green is a sure thing this season. Pantone chose emerald as its top color choice for 2013, so it would be a mistake not to indulge in this attention-grabbing hue. Pair up these natural greens with other jewel tones, like amethyst, sapphire and garnet, to give your seasonal wardrobe a rich, luxurious twist.
Taking over black’s classical reputation, grey is the new sleek, go-to color of the season. Not everything has to be black or white; sometimes the grey matter is just right. Layer up various shades of grey from slate to charcoal for an all around look that’s confident, elegant and sexy. The subtle transition of tones is soft, yet maintains a sense of structure that is intriguing to the eye.
It’s Going to Be a White Christmas
Demanding the spotlight, there is nothing more daring in the fall/winter than an all white ensemble. Head to toe white was definitely making the strongest impression on the runway this season. Boldly go where most will not, pushing the ancient style no no, by breaking the “no white after Labor Day” rule. Talk about chic, the whiteout effect creates a clean profile and glowing look to combat the cold this season.
Neutrals are a safe bet anytime of year. This season, neutrals are coming together in traditional tweed, houndstooth and herringbone weaves that are recreating waves in the fashion world. It’s about being “classic” bringing back those traditional patterns that have dominated American style in the past and reviving our connection to the great outdoors.
The great thing about these color trends is that you probably already have items that you can mix and match to create a seasonal look this year. Purchase one or two seasonal necessities to complete your Fall/Winter 2013 wardrobe. And remember: color has the power to make or break any ensemble, so take great care in keeping up with the latest trends if you want to remain a fashion connoisseur.
