Happy Thursday, ladies. We often think of pumpkin, camel, and other warm shades as the only colors that represent fall. That leaves women who prefer cool colors out in the cold…pardon the bad pun:) Today, I’m styling some cool-toned fall colors in rich shades of cabernet sauvignon, red syrah, and taupe, with fun jeans and some amazing black pants.
I’m honored once again to have this post sponsored by Nordstrom and ShopStyle Collective.
Wine, burgundy, and plum are plentiful this year, so I’m stocking up. I started with this Treasure & Bond v-neck that comes in three colors, sizes XXS-XXL. I’m wearing the red syrah in small and love it. This might be too intense for my coloring in a turtle or crew neck, but the V allows more skin to show, which helps tone down its impact.
The website suggests it runs large and to order one size down, but I did not find that to be the case because I like my sweaters roomy. I love that when you buy Treasure & Bond, Nordstrom will donate 2.5% of net sales to organizations that work to empower youth. These Cobblestone Earrings come in gold or silver and add a modern touch to any look at a great price.
I bookended the look with these super comfy, block-heel booties in cabernet sauvignon. They have a grippy, flexible sole and are waterproof, so perfect for the fall and winter. They come in medium and wide widths, sizes 6-12. Their oval toe is a timeless shape, so they won’t go in and out of style over the years.
These two wine colors are not exactly the same, but they coordinate beautifully because they’re both cool They both look great with gray, navy, and of course, black. I always wanted to try a pair of Spanx pants to see what all the hoopla was about, and now I know…they fit like a dream! These have a 28″ inseam and come in sizes 00-18. I am wearing a 6 and find they run true to size.
Then I popped the sweater over a classic poplin shirt with some fun jeans and taupe booties. These Blondo Waterproof booties come in four colors. I’m wearing the dark taupe, which is a great cool neutral. They have zippers on the outside and inside of the ankle, which I’m seeing on lots of booties this fall.
I added Monica Vinader mini nugget earrings and necklace. I love Monica Vinader because she uses only recycled gold vermeil and sterling silver and sustainably sourced natural gemstones, diamonds, and pearls in their designs.
My jeans are Kut From The Kloth, with a high rise, straight leg, and dark side stripe. I had jeans with a side (tuxedo look) stripe several years ago, which I loved. The stripe visually cuts off the outside 1/2″ inch from the waist to the ankle, which makes you appear slimmer. These are a smidge too long for me with a 28″ inseam, so it occurs to me I could hem the unfinished bottom or simply cut the bottom off. Hmm…what would you do?
