Prepping Your Closet for Fall


Fall will be here in a few weeks and it’s time to reorganize our closets. Make sweaters more accessible and put anything too bright at the very back.  Focus on a color palette. I’ve always loved yellow tones for the fall.  It’s easy to work around yellow and it’s usually the brightest yet acceptable color for the season. If this color does not work for you, pick another one off Pantone’s Fall 2015 Fashion Color Report. There are many options!


You don’t have to pull an all-nighter looking for clothing in these exact colors. Can’t find anything in dried herb? Look for something in olive. Nothing in oak buff? Try mustard. I believe in reusing and up-cycling. Have a swap party or check out your nearest thrift stores. Marsala may be hard to find but you may end up with something in burgundy.

Don’t be afraid to wear black and brown at the same time. Yes, brown is perfect for autumn and it’s always the neutral fashion magazines tell us to wear during this season but you can’t deny that black is one of the most sophisticated colors. The trick is to focus on one of them and use the other to accessorize. A color that ties them together is ideal but not necessary. A simple black dress can be eye-catching with a brown belt and even some cute boots!

I made the following set using a yellow tone to tie brown and black together. Brown sunglasses and black pants or leggings divided by a color that works well with both of them. And as always, I added a hint of quirkiness and a pop of color with the Ollie and Nic apple bag.
