Pumpkin Spice Lattes are out, pumpkins are available for picking, apple cider for drinking and flannels to be worn, which only means one thing: fall is here. With the arrival of this chilly, spooky season means new fashion trends are coming and you can certainly join in on the fun. While there are plenty of trends to jump on the bandwagon of, following the fall colors is one of the easiest ways to do so. 

Of course, there are fall shades that remain popular every season, but this blog covers more than your typical fall colors. For every burgundy sweater, there’s a teal jacket for you to create a unique fall look this year. 

Olive Green

We’ll start off with a basic fall color: olive green. You can never go wrong with wearing this color when the weather cools down. From your army jackets to olive-green jeans and sweaters, the possibilities are endless. This color will remain a classic and works perfectly with colors like white, gray and even dark reds. 

Even if you’re an olive-green fan, try out a new piece of clothing that debuts this color. So, if you find yourself with a bunch of jackets in this color, try out some colored pants. They can be worn with a white sweater or if you’re feeling bold, try out a dark red top!

Purple might not seem like the ideal fall color, but there are so many shades to choose from. From lavender to violet and everything in between, there’s a perfect purple for you this season. You can layer with a purple shirt and denim jacket or another neutral jacket over it to get a pop of color. Or you can switch it around with a purple jacket and a neutral color underneath. Either way, you’ll stand out this season.

Fall isn’t only about rocking earthy colors, but neutral tones too. Camel or tan is one of those tones that you can’t go wrong with during this time of year. It’s a perfect match with many other bold fall colors like olive green and maroon and can also be the star of the show. 

Try out a camel sweater with fun colored pants or throw over a tan jacket over a colored sweater and your favorite pair of jeans or leggings.

One of the most popular fall shades is burgundy (or maroon/other shades of dark red). No matter the year, this color is always in season and is one you can’t go wrong with. Burgundy sweaters and pants are perfect to especially match with tan or white to create a mix of color and neutral shade. Throw some brown booties in the mix and you have the perfect apple-picking outfit!

Like purple, teal may not be the most popular fall color, but it still has its place in your wardrobe. Teal has a mix of the darker blue without being a navy blue, but not so light that it enters the pastel colors. It’s the perfect in-between, just like how fall is an in-between season, not as hot as summer but not as cold as winter. 

So, don’t keep your teal shirts tucked in the back of your closet this fall, break them out a layer them with a black cardigan, denim jacket or whatever you think works best with your style!

Our final fall color is mustard, which also proved to be a popular color for this time of year. If you find yourself to prefer yellow and gold colors, then mustard is perfect for you. From cardigans with a white or black top underneath to sweaters and even coats, this color can be worn in many popular fall fashions. You can wear it down with jeans and sneakers or dress it up with a skirt and boots.
