Fall 2012 has a decidedly dreamy and vintage-inspired air.
I’m seeing a ton of 1920’s influences in the color palette, with lots of muted, Art Deco-inspired pastels and complex, grayed down jewel tones and rich metallics, which makes me think that Baz Luhrmann’s version of The Great Gatsby will be right on trend when it comes out this winter and we’ll all be craving fringed bags and lots of jewelry in January. Seriously, watch the trailer here and tell me that you don’t want to disappear into that world for awhile.
Rose and gold are two of the dreamiest colors in the 1920’s color story, but they’re also incredibly wearable. They layer beautifully together, pair nicely with neutrals like white, tan and brown for day and look opulent when worn with black and jewel tones at night.
And if you’re not ready to go quite so ethereal in your wardrobe, just layer on delicate jewelry or an unabashedly romantic lace or floral piece to instantly warm up your cold weather looks.
