Women in Business - Fall 2017 - 34

Going Big
and
Bold for
fall
By M Au R e e n S u L L I vA n

Like the last election, this
fall's fashion has a go-bigor-go-home feel to it. Bold
colors, bold shine, and even
bold phrases punctuated
recent runways. But it isn't
all in-your-face sartorial sass;
there are some subtleties to
be found. Read on to find
your jam-just a touch or
quite a bit of it.

PUFFy COATS
As leaves (and the mercury)
drop, fall is the time to layer
up, naturally. Longing to
wear your duvet to work?
now it's nearly possible.
puffy coats and outer
layers, some as downright
blankets, dotted the
runways. And who could
argue? It's soooo cozy. pro
tip: if donning a comforteresque piece: Stay upright
once at work, no matter
how difficult. (you have
actually left your couch.)

BIG RED
Red is back as the color of power-and the
color of the season. pantone 17-1558, a.k.a.
Grenadine, to be exact, is one of the pantone
Color Institute's top 10 colors for fall, and its
variants are everywhere. "A powerful, evocative,
dynamic red, Grenadine is a confident and
self-assured attention-getter," according to
the pantone website. And attention these
rosy-hued pieces are after-full-length red
coats, dresses, pants, purses, and shoes-oh,
the shoes! Grab a pair of red boots if you dare;
knee-length or bootie will do. But remember:
Monochromatic is the way to wear your chosen
crimson shade, no matter the piece (or number
of red pieces pared together). This is one trend
to go all in on.

FALL FLORAL
nope, that's not an oxymoron.
Florals were all over the runways
for fall 2017, but not in a
pastel, springy way. Think dark,
dark, dark-flowers on black
backgrounds, black flowers-florals are showing up in deep,
rich palettes, much like the colors
of fall flowers (cranberry mums,
eggplant dahlias).
