FINAL TOUCH: SUBTLE STATEMENT HUES
You know that saying, “Sometimes a whisper speaks louder than a shout”? Well, the same goes for shaking up fall’s subdued palette with subtle pops of colour that’ll make a stronger statement this season than any bright that’ll blind you like it has something to prove.
So move over neon—it’s time to make room for soft grays and blues that’ll let you incorporate colour with quiet confidence and create a fall-appropriate look that’s pigmented to perfection.
To avoid the average all-black trap, start by swapping out your standard inky pump for a peep-toe platform in classic dove grey that’s elegant enough for your evening ensembles and yet still edgy thanks to its chunky block heel. And we’re all for embracing Saint Laurent’s schoolgirl vibe this season with a flared mini skirt and thigh-high tights, as long as you keep it more glam than grade school by arming yourself with a sleek faux-croc clutch in a coolly eye-catching blue. Meanwhile, metallic embellishments, like stacked pewter rings and teardrop earrings with monochromatic bling, add visual interest without stealing the show, and work just as well with casual separates as they do for a night on the town.
Colour us charmed.
