Fall + Your Wardrobe = Cherry Red!

by Michelle Beck, Owner, Purple Clover Boutique

The weather is cooler, pumpkin spice is everywhere and in everything, so that means fall fashion is in!

For fall 2023, one color stands out above all the others. That color is rich cherry red.

We’re seeing this color in every area of fashion. This bold hue is quite the change from the normal muted colors of autumn. Sweaters, handbags, shoes and scarves will all feature this shade in one way or another.

A similar bold style for the new season is metallic silver!

All the metallics are still in fashion, but silver is definitely No. 1. Add a shiny necklace, earrings or even a belt to capture this trend. Don’t think the metallics are just for evening — this trend also looks great for daytime wear.

On the other end of the spectrum the traditional colors for fall are still popular. Black, navy blue and especially olive green are wardrobe staples. Consider these colors as the backdrop for those bright pops of red and silver.

The shirt/jacket aka “shacket” is still going strong. An oversized look in corduroy is very popular and so are plaid patterns in just about every color. The shacket is a must-have for everyone. This look works for every age and fashion style.

It’s fine to wear denim-on- denim! Once considered a fashion faux pas, wearing denim jeans with a denim shirt is now considered to be in style. Not just for a western look, consider pairing all of your denim pieces together with a great belt or a patterned scarf.

Denim also looks great with the metallic jewelry of your choice.

It’s “sweater weather!” You cannot go wrong with a chunky cable knit, a long cardigan or anything in between. Look for that bright cherry red to show up in many different styles.

Depending on where you live, a sweater can take the place of a jacket for cool mornings and evenings.

Have fun this fall, and try something new!
