There’s a crispness in the air, the days are getting shorter – Fall is just around the corner! Our Frock Box racks have been stocked with some new and exciting arrivals that scream all things cozy. Cardigans, coatigans, sweaters and great denim are all essentials for cooler weather dressing. We thought it would be fun this week to talk all things colour as we approach this new season of fashion!
One of the questions on our Style Survey that subscribers fill out when signing up is Colour Palette. We also ask in there if your palette includes seasonal colours. Each season we notice colour trends in the new arrivals we receive, and here we’d like to highlight those for you, so you know what to expect in your coming boxes!
We have been seeing hues of purple for spring and summer, and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere soon! For Fall we are seeing deeper, richer shades like grape, merlot and the ever present burgundy. It’s hard not to notice the 70s vibes that are out there right now, and deep shades of purple fit right in! Try it in dresses, tops, shoes or pants this season!
Muted tones have been the rage, with subscribers favourite blush pink topping the list, but for Fall we are seeing some interesting pieces in a pistachio green hue. One of our favourite back pack bags from Pixie Mood boasts this colour, and we are here for it! It’s a fun pop of colour and definitely is an unexpected Fall hue, which is all the more special!
Last season we were seeing mustard everywhere, and you can bet that its replacement for this season will be all hues of orange! Camel and cognac tones offer rich and retro vibes, but don’t shy away from the brights either! Orange is having its moment. While this shade usually doesn’t top the list of colour palette preferences, it can be so fun in a bold blouse, cardigan or shoe. What’s important to remember with colour trends, is that it can be eased into your wardrobe through accessories.
We mentioned blush pink earlier in the muted tone trend, but we encourage you to think beyond it and bring on the bold! Fuschia tones are not just for summer anymore. Take you look up a notch with a bold pink lip, or translate it into a show stopping look by wearing it as a top or bottom colour in your outfit! Try pairing a bright pink with a more muted orange – berry and camel, for a totally on trend vibe!
Grey is out – beige is in. Well, kind of anyways. We are definitely seeing warmer and more saturated colours in fashion and home décor these days. Try switching up your neutrals and swapping out grey for ivory or cream. Another fun trick for introducing colour trends is to try a monochromatic look, with beige on ivory on white to really play up your neutrals!
We hope this little colour forecast has given you some excitement for all the new arrivals coming your way this season! Interested in joining in on the Frock Box fun? Sign up today for a Favourites subscription risk free! Use promo code BLOG to receive your first months styling fee on us!
