Rochester Fashion Blog: Five colors to shop this autumn season

As the seasons change, so do the trending colors in clothing. This season you’ll see a mix of bright and daring. Here are five colors bound to make an appearance this autumn:

Head-To-Toe BLACK. The color will NEVER go out of style. It’s a staple that belongs in everyone’s closet and always adds a slimming effect. Mix textures or add sparkle to break up the monochromatic look.

Cream. Even though black is having a moment, the opposite color, cream, is competing as well. Intricate patterns and embroidery (think lace) help bring an elegant feel.

Blood Orange and Tangerine. Orange is making a statement in many unique ways. This dramatic color will pop up where it’s least expected: jacket linings, accents on scarves, and trims on sporty vest.

Wine Red. Bold and sophisticated, Wine Red’s richness is perfect for an upscale look. As the leaves change, this color brings warmth and excitement.

Olive Green. A strong, earthy tone that’s dependable as the weather cools. Enough to stand on its own or compliment another color, Olive Green creates an inviting, comfortable look.

While many other colors will be emerging this season, these five colors are having a major moment. Style on the Plaza is a perfect way to see how these colors can be worn. The event will be held on September 17, 2015 in the Peace Plaza. You can buy your tickets on the Rochester Downtown Alliance website.
