How To Luxe Up Everyday Style With Fall’s Marigold Trend

By Michelle Guerrere

One of fall’s major upsides is that it’s finally time to level-up your look with gorgeous jewel tones. The cooler season calls for wrapping yourself up in rich hues, and style insiders know that these saturated shades make any outfit feel ten times more luxe.

At the moment, we’re specifically fans of marigold — amber’s deeper, more sophisticated cousin. Whether it's part of a retro-inspired print or splashed on a go-everywhere carryall, this color has serious staying power. We've teamed up with the experts at Michael Kors to see exactly how to incorporate it into this season’s wardrobe — and beyond.

Here, get inspired by the designer’s effortlessly elegant fall campaign as we show you our favorite ways to style marigold this fall.

Go For The Gold

Accessories with gold-tone hardware will make a marigold look really pop. For maximum impact, try doubling up on gold accents with a chain-strap bag and studded belt in matching tones. For a more subdued twist, simply add drop earrings or a wrist full of understated bangles to your ensemble. Another fun idea? Polish your nails with a gilded lacquer that will pick up on the outfit’s hue — especially when fastening a gleaming peacoat button.

Play With Proportion

When temps drop, camel-colored flares expertly balance out a marigold-patterned tunic with bell sleeves. A waist-cinching belt ensures the print and solid play nicely together (and an embellished style smartly doubles as the only jewelry you’ll need). Finish the look with a fringed saddle bag that calls for all the double-takes.

More Is More

A ’70s-inspired floral print in moody fall tones is the perfect complement to the bold marigold hue. Grab dinner with friends in slouchy heeled boots — the It shoe of the season — in a coordinating caramel color.
