Fall In Love with Color

The next few weeks are going to be hard to say goodbye. Goodbye to summer, that is. The go-to strapless cotton dress and gladiator sandals that served well for barbecues and walks along the beach must now retreat to that cold, sad plastic storage bin. But don't fret, the memories will soon be an after-thought overshadowed by a new season of deep, rich hues evoking luxury and glamour.

Complement a cool starry night by opting for a gold wrap dress or violet houndstooth square neck shift dress (with this season's musts have textured black tights, see Marc Jacobs) and for him, pair a cobalt blue thin sweater with charcoal gray pants. All genders should take stock in purple, dark brown, golds, and gray.

So, farewell my summer clothes and hello fall coolness. Shades [still] required.
