Move over earthy burgundy, forest green, navy blue, and midnight black…bright colors are here and are here to stay through the cooler months. When you think of fall fashion, you think of all the colors above. Deep and cozy tones typically overwhelm the racks of your closet, but designers and trendsetters everywhere are about to change all of that.  

If you’ve looked into this seasons trends, you will know vibrant hues are in and 70’s and 80’s inspired brights and futuristic finishes have been dominating high fashion runways. This isn’t to say you won’t be able to find oxblood or gray wool coats and frocks. These shades will always be a staple during the colder months. However, I can’t wait to dive in and embrace the bright colors this season has to offer because it’s impossible to know how long the rainbow trend will last! Get inspired here as I’ll show you how we can take this trend off the runway and into your own personal closets at home.

Pink and Fuchsia for fall? Consider it mind blowing. A color typically worn in warmer seasons gets an encore this fall thanks to designers like Givenchy, Gucci and Stella McCartney bringing forward bright cobalt blues and Ulla Johnson, Valentino and Alexander McQueen for their bright pinks and even Giorgio Armani and Miu Miu for pastel purples mixed with metallic silvers.  All seen in Vogues Ten Color Trends for Fall Winter 2018 2019 article.

Ruth Shaw a luxury fashion boutique in Baltimore, Maryland paired this outfit together perfectly with a Rag & Bone leather skirt, pink cashmere sweater and Maje sneakers with a beautiful Elena Ghisellini handbag.  The skirt, sweater, sunglasses and purse are from the racks at Ruth Shaw.

In this next look I find a way to mix bright floral in this gorgeous Maje dress. I added a tailored Alice + Olivia plaid blazer to bring it into fall. If you can believe it, this dress is part of the fall 2018 collection at Maje. Here, the European designer isn’t just bringing in color but also adding a bright floral pattern. The blue flowers on the bright pink fabric complements the dress so well. I added a fun pop with the Krewe blue tinted sunglasses to bring out the blue in the flowers.

In this final look, of course, I had to bring in Veronica Beard. Per usual, Veronica Beard is killing it with this gorgeous silk “Elsie” dress.  I personally love this dress and immediately thought it would pair well with red. When I read Vogue Italia’s article on Pink and Red being the new Black and White I immediately become obsessed with this movement. I mean… how feminine is this trend?! Not only did it dominate the runway in Spring’s NYFW for Fall 2018, but it’s also trending for Spring 2019. This color combo isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
