Hot colors for Fall 2012

Q. I loved your spring list of hot colors, can you tell me what colors are big for fall?

A. Though I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever colors you prefer and any that look good on you regardless of trends, there’s no denying that there are several standout colors and color combination this season. Typically for fall, rich autumnal and jewel tones are hot, and this season is no exception. Two of the standouts are oxblood (a deep burgundy) and hunter green, but jade and sapphire blue are also trending.

A surprising color for fall is white (or winter white, if you prefer to call it that), a “color” that will continue to be big for spring 2013. Black combinations are also big: black & blue, black & gold, and black & white.
