We typically consider bright colors as Spring and Summer attire, but they actually work in the Fall and Winter as well. Neon and pastel pieces add a beautiful pop of color to the deep hues we are used to seeing in Fall and Winter. The key to incorporating bright color is to stick with one or two bright pieces and keep the rest of the outfit neutral. When adding a bright color, I actually shy away from pairing it with black. Although black is a great neutral, it is also predictable and safe. Adding pops of color in Fall and Winter is a bold statement, so consider stepping outside of your comfort zone and experimenting with an unexpected color combination. My personal favorite color combination is bright orange and gray. I styled a bright melon orange blouse with gray slacks and accented it with a leopard skinny belt. I kept my shoes and bag simple and understated so it didn’t clash. The look was finished with a burgundy lip color which is a big color this season. I also love the idea of adding a bright lip color, like fuchsia, to accent your deeper wardrobe. The idea of incorporating your Summer brights into your Fall and Winter wardrobe not only adds a punch of color to the deep colors we’re used to seeing, but also extends the versatility of your entire wardrobe.
My general thoughts on lipstick is that in spring and summer I wear softer, fresh and natural looking makeup and in fall and winter go more dramatic with makeup. Usually when fall rolls around I wear dark red or plum lipstick. This fall though, there is a definite throwback to the lady like sixties. Think about the Dennis Basso collection at New York Fashion Week this year and that sums up the vibe of fall. And when you're thinking sixties you're thinking pink. What's in now in lipstick is all things pink from ice pink to warm rose. Here are some examples:
