As the temperatures drop, customize your look with warm jewel-toned pieces.
By Sophia Liao
Dressing in rich colors is a delight during any season but it is especially appropriate during the fall. The most striking pieces come in a spectrum of warm red hues, and incorporating them into an outfit is an easy way to add color to a sea of neutral monochrome.
If you’re wary of jumping straight to making a color statement, go piece by piece. Start with a ruby red brogue heel or crimson vegan leather leggings or even a scarlet lip. To avoid looking old-school in these colors, opt for updated laser-cut silhouettes and pair them with sleek basics in clean neutrals. For example, toss a navy or camel woolen toggle coat over a chunky Burgundy knit, and you’ve got yourself a go-to look.
This season, find yourself at the apple orchard, at a vineyard wine tasting, or dashing along Central Park to your next meeting with a latte in hand as leaves drift down from the highest branches. Whether you’ve chosen ruby, maroon, vermilion, scarlet, burgundy, crimson, or carmine for a touch of warmth, you will look and feel your very best.
