Our Favorite Colors for Fall

Who is ready for the change of seasons, and do we dare say, the rain? The fires in the PNW have made our skies smokey and we are ready for a little rain to clean up our atmosphere in Seattle. As more collections arrive at the shop, we definitely have some favorite colors that are inspiring us for the Fall/Winter season. Here are just a few to get you in the mood.

Deep, rich, dark blue. An alternative to black and slightly less edgy.  We love the shade of navy on this Officine Creative Chelsea boot.  We would wear these with jeans or basic black leggings. They would also look wonderful with longer skirts and of course anything dark blue.

Dark espresso brown with a slight hue of cool gray is the best way to describe the color of this bag from Aunts and Uncles. The perfect carry-all that can convert itself from a handbag to a tote.  We would carry this bag when we are wearing shades of olive green, gray or dark chocolate brown. Perfectly acceptable with black too.

Fresh and cool, deep greens are another favorite here at re-souL. Green is a versatile shade that can be worn with navy, gray, black and wine. These oxfords by MOMA are a basic style that would go with most anything in your wardrobe.

Blue was shown all over the runways for this spring, ranging from pale aqua to deep indigo. An easy color to wear and pull off gracefully. Especially when it comes to your feet. Its timeless qualities and beautiful shades make it a highly appealing color trend. Perfect to add a pop of color to your tried and true denim. Of course, a little imagination wouldn’t hurt either. So get a little out of your comfort zone and wear some blue.

Fall Color Story: Blue Awakening

Blue Awakening

After seasons of black, grey and brown for fall ready-to-wear, it is really nice to see more color! While forest green, burnt orange and purples are all the rage this season, we especially like the “new blues” ranging from navy to cobalt. Rich true shades that can be calming as well as hopeful, awakening us to a brighter future. These more cheerful, more intense hues look great with all of our neutrals we already have in our closets. What a better way to freshen up your favorite black dress than with a pair of cobalt blue booties! It’s a blue awakening!
