How big is black-and-white when colors can warm you up for fall?
Since everybody needs to cover up, the hotter way to wear color this season
is through scarlet tones, eye-popping pinks, candy colors, electric blues and dull greens.
Take it from Fashion Week where such trends remind us of the verdict: Color is bolder than black and white.
Red proves that it isn’t so-last-year as the burning shade ramps high and proud on the runways in Marchesa gowns inspired by Oriental and equestrian fashions while Michael Kors attempts a little drama with a glittery full-sleeved waist-hugging evening dress. A sexy belted front-slit coat is featured at the Oscar de la Renta show. Donna Karan sends a model dressed in a bright knee-length frock, also full-sleeved and like Michael Kors’s sparkling number, emphasizes bodyshape.
May it be a blazer, dress, suit, skirt or shoe,pink is popular for the season.
Honor brings us hot pink confidence in different shades from coral to fuchsia to strawberry cream.

Cobalt is key when you want to go beauteous in blue.
Check out Victoria Beckham, Lacoste and Costume National to get some hints on how to wear this hue.
Olive green mights sound boring to some, but to fashionistas it’s the latest showstopper. Is it the new black? Perhaps, but it recently gets innovated by Philip Lim,who presents cozy but classy lengthy jacket,and Prabal Gurung who turns military into something playful with a peplum top. Rachel Zoe sticks to the basics in a fur collar coat, leather top and miniskirt.
Although Fall Fashion 2013 calls for classic silhouettes and practical fabrics, there’s never a rule that says you can’t bring life into your wardrobe. Doesn’t color give flavor to an outfit? Enjoy shopping and remember that a wise woman once said, “The best color to pick, is the one that looks best on you.”
