Is Black Your Fall Color?

Is Black Your Fall Color?

You’d normally consider black a year-round color. It’s a color that goes with everything. It’s great in the summertime with basic white. It can show off a tan beautifully. Black is a striking color set against stark white, blue oceans and pure sand.

It has its place in the fall for the fashion-conscious, too. When you mix black with other colors of the color spectrum, you make colors pop and bring out the hue and saturation of those colors. Black is a perfect backdrop to highlight a certain favorite color you might want to showcase in your wardrobe. Take a look at what these designers have mixed with black.

Starting with some basic, simple colors that blend easily with black, it’s easy to mix and match shades of the brown family. Actually, brown and black blend together wonderfully well. Try it! You’ll soon see this blend for its richness of the color family and its classic styling.

Chloe and Chanel both used both a light and a dark shade in their 2011 runway lines. Chloe used a beautifully rich brown-black balanced with a silvery-gray while Chanel’s black is balanced with a wintry white. Both work well with just a hint of the lighter color.

John Galliano‘s collection not only used white as a backdrop but he also used a creamy rich brown and hues of deep reds and burgandies to offset black. Beautiful for the oncoming winter months.

Hannah MacGibbon Chloe and sisley-benetton both showed blues and blacks together. Jeans always work well with black, it’s an easy throw together outfit, casual yet classic. Easily simply put together. Now add those deep brown leather booties with  a brown belt and you’re striding in classic style.

Christian Dior brought out beautiful warm hues of burgandies, browns and blues. All blending beautifully together.

Rodarte mixed a creamy ivory with black in a criss-cross long coat for a look of elegance on the runway. Long flowing lines mixed together for a show of elegance.
