The fall season has finally approached, and with that the light and bright colors of summer are traded in for cooler and darker colored shades. While it is definitely common to add shades of red and orange to the typical fall wardrobe, there is something about cool colors that fall in line with the brisk breeze of autumn. The question is, are you feeling daring enough to try the dark hues?

I would normally associate these dark, chilly colors with all things winter, however there is something that is so extraordinary about adding dark colors to the average fall outfit. The dark colors also allow a light skin tone to stand out nicely, compared to warmer color shades. Whether it’s a blouse, a casual shirt, dark jeans or a skirt, the cool colors are ready to be styled and shown off to your desires!

You might be struggling to come up with outfit ideas for such drastic color scheme. If so, you have come to the right place! Our Fashionista pictured here knows exactly how to style her outfit so that she has a variety of cool hues present. A striped blouse is essential for the breezy weather, and the blue stripes stand out nicely against her light skin shade. Her black jeans go great with the blue and white stripes in her blouse, and add yet another dark color to the mix. Riding boots are every college girl’s fall staple, and the brown color not only compliments the dark colors in the rest of her outfit, but is also considered to be one of the top must-have colors for fall.

Our Fashionista completes her look with black and silver earrings and a watch, both of which go with her jeans perfectly. She adds strokes of silver eye shadow, black mascara and rouge lipstick makeup in order to capture the essence of the dark hue.
