Style Advice of the Week

One of the hottest colors this fall is plum. It's rich and bold tone contrasts well with the chestnut boots and sweaters that are slowly starting to come out for those chilly days. This Fashionista earlier saw the article I created about a structured bag and how tying a sash adds an unexpected element to her outfit. In order to showcase her beautiful tops color, she tied a similar plum colored ribbon to her tote bag. Simple details such as this complete a outfit!

A great way to showcase plum is to have a neutral skirt to allow the color to pop. You can contrast the color and loose shape of the top with a structured, neutral corduroy skirt, such as this Fashionista did. One of my favorite ways to wear plum is to pair it with dark denim or black pants and layer it with a scarf to tone down the deep colors. Plum skinny jeans are very popular this fall and because of it's dark color, it’s extremely flattering. Wear your plum skinnies with a bold graphic print or even a chunky knit sweater.

If you love patterns be sure to look for patterned plum pants and ikat patterns to spice up your fall wardrobe. It’s a complete tongue twister but two hot trends for fall are plum and peplum, especially in plum. Peplum has been seen on the runway for spring of 2013 clothing during New York Fashion Week so it’s a look that is here to stay.

Whichever way you rock your style, be sure to include the color plum. It’s a great addition to your wardrobe and is here to stay for many seasons!
