Fall is a versatile season for fashion. The weather starts getting cooler, making heavier-knit fabrics, boots, and chunky accessories in vogue. The occasional mix of warmer weather also makes lighter clothing appropriate, as well. To be fashionable in the fall, stick with an autumn color scheme and wear clothing that seems sensible for whatever the weather is outside.

The most notable thing about fall fashion is the color scheme. Sticking with colors and patterns associated with autumn will lead you down the path of becoming fall fashionable. Consider the seasons natural color scheme. Autumn is most notable for the way the trees change color and shed their leaves. Form your color palette of the natural color palette by opting for colors associated with this process. Think reds, oranges, yellows, browns, and deep burgundy-violets.

Look for the year’s “in” colors. While fashionable autumn colors usually stay within the same general palette, each year comes with its own list of colors that are considered especially stylish. For instance, in 2011, burnt olive, coral, burgundy, teal, and coffee were among the most fashionable choices. Research the season’s “in” colors a few months before the start of autumn to get a good idea of what colors to look for.
