What is your favorite fall hue? Mine is burgundy or any variation of it. For starters, it is not prejudice! It looks good on every complexion. Second of all, it matches with both brown and black and for that I consider it a neutral. You can never work enough of THOSE into your wardrobe. I am not sure about the weather where you live, but September and October are considered the summer months in San Francisco. With temperatures in the mid 70’s during the day, boots and sweaters are not an option. So, if you too live in the Bay Area or anywhere else with a late fall, here is a good way to style fall-like clothes without overheating! Hint hint…burgundy faux leather shorts.
I already gave it away that burgundy (bordeaux) is my favorite autumn hue but in all honestly, I am a fan of them all. Particularly mustard and olive tones. I am starting to realize that my fav colors all have one thing in common: they’re named after food items. Ha! That is very fitting. Anyway, if it is too warm to layer up in sweaters and scarves, incorporate the quintessential fall color scheme into your looks with lightweight garments or accessories. Consider toting a cognac purse, rocking an olive floppy hat, or wearing merlot shoes.
Another way to dress for the fall while being mindful of the temperature is to mix in fall or winter fabrics. Today we feature burgundy faux leather shorts and suede boots. Both of these fabrics are considered cold weather materials. The same goes for velvet and corduroy. The black mesh top is suitable for wear all year round, but it is an airy balance between the leather and suede. Finally, take your autumn ensemble into the winter with black stockings and a fur bomber. And that’s how we do fall in San Francisco!
