Keeping It Classy | Pop of Color - Plum | Charlotte NC Photographer

The gorgeous pops of color for fall just keep coming in this weeks Keeping It Classy Post! It makes me a little sad to have to say goodbye to my bright colors and pastels as the cooler months start rolling in, however now I can incorporate rich colors into my autumn looks. If you haven't seen last weeks Pop of Color you can read all about my love for emerald here. While I do adore emerald, it is not the only gem color I love to see in Fall outfits. Plum is the perfect shade of purple to incorporate into your Autumn looks. Blacks and browns definitely become necessary staples as the leaves start to change, so you need to brighten them back up with plum.

Fall Clothing

Sometimes, as fall rolls in dreary weather can come with it.  Bring life back to a wet and cloudy afternoon with plum colored rain boots and a matching sweater. If this is too much color for you, you can always tone it down with some neutrals. I have found that an olive green makes the perfect neutral for plum.

Dresses might just be my favorite article of clothing, but it bums me out to know how heavily associated they are with summer. I fully believe when you think dresses you should think FALL as well!  Paired with a stylish leather jacket and ankle booties, you can still rock that flowy and flirty dress when nights get cool.

I have mentioned a lot how the color plum can help brighten up a dark outfit in the fall, but it can also do just the opposite. I hate the rule that you are not supposed to wear white after labor day. White sweaters looks so cute with denim and I don't want to miss out on a great outfit combination because of an unwritten rule. By adding fall tones to that white sweater, like plum, you have a beautiful bright look that is still perfect for fall.

My favorite thing about a gem tones is that they can amp up an outfit without losing that cozy feel that is so great about fall outfits. These tones are even better, because they look great in almost ever aspect of a look. From shoes and accessories to shirts and dresses plum adds vibrancy, fun, and Pop of Color to your fall wardrobe.
