What Would Holley Wear: Transitioning with Fall Colors

Yay…it’s time to transition into fall!  Though not with sweaters and layering…but with vibrant autumn hues.  So this week, I’m sharing my five favorite fall colors.  

Okay…it’s still warm in Texas, but “orange” you glad the highs are only in the 90s?  We are smitten with how Parker & Hyde’s orange clutch complements a pair army green jeans.  One of my favorite style influencers admits she had a major moment when she coordinated a bright orange top with her favorite Madewell jeans.  And when it turns a little chilly, an orange cardigan paired with white jeans looks very sophisticated. 

So do you know what hotdogs and fall hues have in common?  Mustard….of course! Keep wearing the yellow sundress or skirt you wore all summer, and top off your ensemble with a jean jacket.  Plus, it’s perfectly acceptable to continue carrying a wooden or wicker bag. For early fall, wear a mustard yellow blazer or kimono with jeans for a fun night out on the town.  Once it gets a little cooler, add a yellow cardigan to your jeans and t-shirt ensemble….the ultimate in comfort. 

Brown is back….luxurious…and has your fall style written all over it.  Talk about luxury, Valentino’s brown rockstud city sandals will have you stepping out in style.  And be sure to take a look at the selection of Valentino dupes from Amazon on our Pinterest board.  Louis Vuitton’s giant monogram tote in brown is perfect for fall market shopping, and I’m pretty sure it will even hold a few small pumpkins!  

Olive green has always been one of my favorite colors, and it’s perfect year-round.  So of course I’m loving Talbot’s olive green V-neck sweater and matching loafers paired with white jeans.  For those “wishful” cooler days, a green trench coat or cargo jacket is definitely “fall-bulous” paired with jeans or slacks.    

Burgundy is not only a beautiful fall color, but it even sounds delicious…don’t you agree?  We think Staud’s burgundy bucket bag looks yummy and could easily double as a luxe wine carrier.  If you are looking for a stunning wedding guest dress, a burgundy fall maxi is a show stopper.  FYI:  Since my husband is a wine connoisseur, I asked him for a few burgundy recommendations.  So here’s our first ever WWJD (What Would Johnnie Drink):

…Gevrey-Chambertin ‘La Justice’ 2012 

..Pouilly Fuisse White Burgundy 2011

..Louis Jadot Nuits-Saint-Georges 2016

Wow…who knew there were so many scrumptious fall colors to choose from?  Cheers to a fabulous fall!
