Pre-Fall Colours: Taupe
Fashion week is upon us, and I am so excited to wear all my fall outfits. Which now comprise about half of my phone notes. However, it’s still super hot outside, so I wanted to introduce one of my Pre-Fall colours: taupe.
I’ve already seen a similar colour on the Cushnie et Ochos runway, and will probably continue to see it as spring rolls in. It’s interesting to see designers make the Spring 2018 looks mesh with what is currently in season. For us in LA, it’s very easy to wear the Spring 2018 outfits now, while it’s still warm, but in other places it’s getting colder and the clothes on show now won’t be worn for a long time. This was always a source of confusion for me, and I still feel like the industry can do better in this respect. A lot of designers are introducing ‘See Now Buy Now’ collections. Clothes that can be bought right off the catwalk. I think that’s a great idea.
So just to be clear, what I mean by pre-fall colours is a colour that can be worn NOW, before it’s the actual fall season. I’m very practical. I see people wearing fall outfits for the fall shows when it’s thirty degrees outside! I am not about that life. This taupe colour, along with khaki are two great pre-fall colours that can make a great transition into the all-black warm coats that are coming!
Get The Look
I like a good pink colour. This taupe is a great compromise between wearing pink and being an adult!
This outfit is not perfectly coordinated. It’s something I’ve been doing a lot lately, it just looks more interesting. Crop tops might be a little too cold as the weather changes, so now’s the perfect opportunity to wear them!
As you know, I love when things match in the tiniest ways. This D&G bag has a pink contour, which is a nice addition to the taupe outfit. These shoes have also been my getting a lot of wear. I love the thin straps, they look very minimal and sophisticated; a nice addition to leggings.
For jewelry I went with my new choker from Dannijo, and simple diamond earrings. Pre-fall colours usually call for silver accessories.
I hope you’re all having a great September!
