Autumn Colors-Orange

Orange is one of my favorite colors to wear. If worn right, it gets you all the right attention and warmer-toned women glow beautifully in all tones of this color. I read somewhere that orange is one of the harder colors to wear, but I guarantee you most of that comes from the paler or cooler-toned women. It does tend to make cooler-toned women look zombified. The good news for cooler-toned women who want to wear orange is that orange pairs beautifully with a lot of cool colors. Try color-blocking but always keep the orange on the bottom, in a skirt for example. For warmer-toned women, just ball out of control with orange; you can do no wrong here.

Autumn All-Stars: Mariah Carey

On any given day you can catch me yell-singing a Mariah Carey song (well, anything through Emancipation of Mimi; I haven’t kept up after that album). Remember her early years with her coppery curls? I wish she’d go back to her natural color and hire a stylist. Suits her so much better than these ashy blondes she’s been doing. Anyhoo, let’s look at Mimikins in cooler colors first:

Ick, right? Mariah in warmer colors:

May-hay-haaaay-jor difference! The day Mariah goes back to her natural hair color, incorporates these warmer colors more often and some style and starts bringing it on her albums again, is the day she stunts on everyone. I still love her though, always. Mariah is an Autumn All-Star. *hits high note*

Autumn Colors-Chocolate Brown

Chocolate brown is such a cozy color when done right. When done wrong, it can look blah as hell, but the key is to either get some sheen or some kind of texture going–sequins, iridescence, cable-knit, etc. Autumns look washed out in black, or the black just sits on them but brown gets such a bad rap they hesitate to turn toward it. Start incorporating more brown into your wardrobe and thank me later! It really softens up your look. Another hint would be for Autumns (and Springs!) to try brown eyeliner and/or mascara instead of black. I did this and was amazed at the difference. Black eyeliner always made me look undead, but brown brought out the fiiiiiierce.
