Among the style set, fall fashion is perennially dominated by dark shades of black and navy. But while these classics are all-stars as the weather turns cooler, there are certainly some fresher hues that deserve to reign supreme this season.
Take teal — aka “cyan” to industry vets. It's one of the most elegant jewel tones to earn the spotlight recently, and when rendered in crushed velvet or silk, it elevates an ensemble to regal status. Silvery hues have also positioned themselves as the new neutral this season, adding a luxe effect to embossed leather and tapestry prints. Add these two colors together and you have the formula for a truly chic cool-weather wardrobe.
For the know-how on this season's most polished color equation, we called on the experts at Michael Kors to show us the chicest ways to incorporate the key runway shades into our seasonal ensembles.
Here are three ways to inject your fall wardrobe with a touch of teal and metallic silver, inspired by the Michael Kors fall campaign.
Crushed velvet and teal were simply meant for each other; pairing a rich hue with an equally luxurious fabric makes for an instant standout. This cool-girl take includes an ethereal silk top delicately tucked into a velvet tiered midi. A silver-studded belt brings the look together — and lets you fake a higher waistline so the skirt can really go for a twirl.
Certain shades on the color wheel just look better when they’re together. Such is the case with teal and dark suede, which play off each other in the most perfect way. Choose a teal studded crossbody with metallic hardware to anchor your outfit and then pull on soft suede boots for a cool-girl take on polished.
Pattern lovers, rejoice: There is a way to incorporate silver into your wardrobe while staying true to your eclectic style. Take a nod from It girls with a geometric printed piece in a boho silhouette, and then finish the look with metallic embossed ankle boots. For a night out, throw a metallic moto jacket over your shoulders and hit the town.
