TTFF (1): Shades of the Season

So in the first post of TTFF '10 (Top Trends: Fall Fashion) I though I'd hit the most general of topics: what colours will we be seeing in our magazines, in our favourite stores/boutiques and passing by on that stylish brunnette you nearly bumped into on the stairs.I'm really loving the shades that keep popping up, and maybe that's because I already have a lot of them in my closet. Whew, maybe that will limit my need to shop! (Unlikely.)

Heather Grey

Flattering to many and a neutral colour that matches just about anything. I find this colour has a comforting quality to it.

I've always loved this warm brown that's great with gold accessories. Also a neutral that pairs with many other shades- making it a versatile colour you can wear on any part of your body.

Plum Purple

Darker shades of rich purple are also on the agenda for this fall- flip through any fashion magazine and you'll shades of plum being incorporated into make-up looks, dresses, sweaters, bags, and footwear.

 Ruby Red

Accents of vibrant red add a bold touch among the neutrals of this season.


Metallics are a simply way of glamming up any outfit, whether it be a piece of jewellery or cute pair of shoes.

Olive Green

Olive green goes great with many neutrals and is a shade that goes well many skin tones. This colour ties into the current military/utilitarian trend that emerged this summer and will continue into fall.
