Again, sorry about the delay, but I’m sure you all know what’s going on in the Southeast. The positive is, by Sunday, everything we’ll be up and running smoothly. Now, without further ado…
We are back with more warm tones are your Fall wardrobe. As you have seen, my choices for Fall pieces aren’t always dark warm colors or heavy fabrics that is usually associated with this season. I like to incorporate other seasonal temperatures without taking away from the current. For example, Summer and Winter are cool seasons while Spring and Fall are warm seasons. This doesn’t mean I’d select denim shorts or tube tops in my Winter inspirations or wool coats in my Summer picks…. it’s just about understanding what cool and warm tones are and how the how to pair them with the appropriate article of clothing for that season. You get it?
Let’s take this collection here. Being that we are in the Fall season, I am sticking with warm browns and golden tones. However, adding light washed denims add a bit of coolness to your outfit (as seen above). Take a look at the bags I’ve chosen. Can you guess which one is warm and which has cooler tones? When it comes to the color blush, the more brown tones come through, it’s likely to be warm. The more pink tones come through, the cooler the shade is. If you selected the tote has a warm tone, you’re correct. Now, if you chose the clutch as a warm, you are also correct, lol. Some may consider this tone to be neutral, in fact, because the it both warm and cool… kind of pink and brown hues. Most bags with warmer tones will have gold, bronze or copper hardware. While the cooler undertones will most likely have silver. I’m sure most of us have had that one shopping experience where we’ve eyed down a bag we loved, but declined because something wasn’t right. You couldn’t figure it out, but all you knew was the hardwear messed everything up. If it were only gold or if only it were silver, that bag would’ve been everything special. Without you even knowing, or you may have known, you used the warm/cool tone comparison. Now, do know that some colors can get away with both gold and silver tones. I’m not saying that gold MUST ONLY go with warm hues and vice versa. Just keep in mind, coordinating tones are more pleasing to the eye. I remember while working at Z Gallerie several years ago, they divided their bays into colors and tones. With my prior training in Visual Merchandising, I understood how everything was divided and was strategically placed near coordinating pieces to increase volume and UPT (I probably shouldn’t be saying this, but this is what Visual Merchandising is all about). If you haven’t been to a Z Gallerie boutique before, I urge you to visit to see what I’m talking about. The reds are separated to the reds. The blues are separated to the blues and away from the greens. Everything is strategically placed. It’s amazing how they came up with this idea. Simply, google Z Gallerie stores.
Anyways, I’ll let you get back to shopping. I hope you love this outfit as much as I do. Tag me on IG if you do wear this outfit. I would so love to see you!
