It’s official! September is here and soon after, leaves will be changing colors and the weather’s air will become crisper and cooler. Why not get a jump on fashion’s top color trends and prepare yourself for the most fashionable time of the year?
If you’re looking for a little fashion inspiration…look no further. We have the top color trends that you need in your closet here.
Plum—The lush tones of these purples in your closet embellishes any outfit with distinction, grace and class. Plum eggplant, grape…whatever your edible of choice, a rich purple feels fine for fall.

Champagne—The only pain that’s allowed in fashion is Champagne. You’ll see plenty of glittering nude gowns and trousers this season, but our favorite champagne looks included gleaming silk skirts and gauzy separates.

Yves Klein Blue—The perfect shade of blue. The French artist’s favorite color made appearance after appearance on fall runways. This super-saturated blue is a sumptuous option for after-hour outfit ensembles.

Fire-Engine Red—It’s already made red carpet appearances this season (see Beyonce’s Baby bump pics) as seen in this season’s fashion runway looks – red was bright and cheerful, unlike last season’s oxblood trend. We love a simple silhouette that tempers the fiery hue.

Felt Gray—You can’t go wrong with grays. Nubby, textured heather-grays with a luxe, felted finish feel classic and timeless and will be a great closet accessory color for years to come.
