The Best Fall Colors to Wear This Year

While Christmas seems to steal all the attention when it comes to holiday joy and dressing to the nines, fall fashion deserves its own moment of appreciation.

After all, fall means swapping our sundresses for sweaters and trying out a new color palette that's perfectly in tune with the colors of the trees outside. One thing that fall fashion doesn't mean, though, is putting away the colors already! With that said, here are some of the best fall colors to incorporate into your closet this year:

Sage Green

Green, in all its forms, is such an underrated color to wear. It's flattering on virtually everyone, no matter your skin tone or hair color, especially when it's a soft sage green. Not sure where to start? You can always pick up a sage nail polish and first try it out on your fingertips—you'd be surprised how well it complements anything you wear.

Burnt Orange

You love the colors of the changing fall leaves, so why not bring them into your wardrobe? Burnt orange and similar hues are surprisingly pleasing to the eye, especially on chunky sweaters and cardigans that can be paired with simple jeans and other staples.

Yep, brown. It sounds boring, and maybe even not-so-cute, but brown is having a well-deserved moment in fashion right now and there's no reason to shy away from it. You could try the brown nails that have probably been dominating your Instagram feed or swap your usual black basic items for a deep chocolate brown for an easy way to break into this trend.

Deep red tones like maroon make an impact, whether you're rocking them with your top, skirt or even a Thanksgiving-friendly dress. This warm color really steals the show in a sea full of black-on-black outfits, and it provides just enough edge to level up any outfit gorgeously.
