Top Color Trends from Summer To Fall

The air is still hot and sometimes a bit muggy, but a girl can’t help to feel a longing for the warmth of fall colors.  Oh, the smell of a chocolate brown coat that’s drawing you to fall limp into a coffee shop couch while sipping lattes as the cool air blows outside the window.  But how quickly the vision is a miss as the hot sun burns through the beautiful image you’ve created.  So what’s a girl to do who longs for the fall but is still living in the hottest month of the summer?  Good news, it’s easier than you think! Designers found way to pair the bright, bold summer colors that screamed, “Summer is here to stay,” with warm neutral staples that easily transition us from summer to fall.  No more shades required entering your closet plus the money you spent on fun summer brights didn’t go down the drain!

Fashion at the 2010 Met Costume Gala

We’ve started seeing the color a few months ago but we can’t seem to agree on a name – it’s nude, blush, oyster, – whatever you want to call it, it’s one of the new color trends for the season and I love it!  For a girl who loves the summer but hates the bright pinks and blues that fill the stores from season to season, I’m leaping with joy as I see countless stars walk the red carpet in these hot new tones!  Yes, a splash of color can and should be added but, nonetheless, I don’t have to wear fuchsia from head to toe this summer! This year’ Costume Gala on May 3rd proved no different; the nudes are here to stay for at least this season and as long as you have cool summer tan you can pull it off – so be careful.  At an event where we get to see anything from Madonna wearing Louis Vuitton bunny ears to this year’s Katy Perry’s ‘light up my life’ dress, we saw the good, the bad and the what was she thinking!?  The host of this year’s Gala was none other than Vogue’s Anna Wintour who was also wearing the trend in a shimmery Chanel piece proving that even the lady who chooses the fashion trends each year has put her stamp of approval on the nude trend.  The flawless editor-in-chief shimmered with elegance as she co-hosted this year’s event with none other than Oprah Winfrey.   And yes, even SPJ sported a cool blush tone looking flawless taunting us that Sex and the City is but weeks away!  Yes, it’s true that there are more color trends this season that will make other’s leap for joy, but this one is my cup of tea!
