The Fall Element - Bold and Gold
The Fall Element - Bold and Gold by lili-he featuring a green knee length skirt
For this week, I would like to share some of the fall colors that I strongly recommend. And that is the bold color family group- Such as maroon/sangria red, Forest(dark emerald), Indigo(dark navy), and Eggplant purple.
Because of the fall season, the arrives of the cold weather allows me to change not only the material but also, my choice of colors automatically switch from extra bright to semi-dark color tone. The reason I believe those colors are perfect for the season due to it brings out the fun and elegant personality to the everyday style. Of course, I am a big fans of black, white and grey. But fall is all about using some of the summer elements and to combines with the cold weather style. Which my choices are in the transition between seasons.
When wearing those colors within the warm color group, it is import to always remember have a balance color crossover. Such as to match the Sangria with dark purple, black, grey/silver, or a beige blouse can be very elegant. And as for the forest dark emerald color, since it given its yellow undertones, the shade can actually be wear with some of the brighter color such as teal, darker orange, metal silver; or just to be safe, you can't go wrong with brown.
For all the fall colors that I just recommend, I strongly suggest to pair them with a bold statement shoes and accessories. There's no doubt I deserve the title of being The Boot-coholic, just as +jessicasimpsonVEVO said: The boot are made for walking. Because boot are just so flattering and chic that can be easily match with different styles. And a pair of knee high boot with a wool pencil skirt are always a killer look.
Last but not least, gold accessories are just perfect for the fall season. The color is heavy and strong. Which a nice rose gold watch and/or a very elegant long gold necklace with simple design are perfect with the fall outfit. Personally I don't have too much gold accessories pieces, because it is very tricky when it comes to shopping for such a strong accessories. I actually know a girl who crazy about ANY jewelry that comes in gold color. She's a size 4 type of girl, and to be honest, I always very doubtful of her tasted when it comes to jewelry shopping. Imagine, as a girl who's petite and like to put on huge heavy gold pieces, it was unbearable. Keep in mind that a nice gold accessories don't have to be over dramatic, because it will take the shine out of you. I used to heard a very famous quote from this foreign fashion designer: Let the cloth suit you, not the other way.
- Stay fashionable. Stay elegant.
