The 2012 fall collections dished out by some of the top names in the industry are mostly inspired by the strong and fearless modern women of today. Clothing pieces like oversized coats, statement jackets, turtlenecks, royal brocades, and luxurious accessories are some fashion picks that you can work into your wardrobe this season, get a mix of bright and muted pieces that can help you create versatile looks for different occasions. The brown-amber neutral shade of Cognac makes it one of the best colors that one can play around with during fall. One can take the trendy prints, baroque, velvet and leather looks that are “in” this season and get some uniquely fashionable look with color – Cognac.
Trendy colors like Oxblood, Rhapsody, Ultramarine Green, Olympian Blue, Rose Smoke, Pink Flambe, French Roast and the popular shade of Cognac pose plenty of fashion possibilities for this year’s Fall Fashion. This brandy inspired shade looks great on most fabric especially leather and suede ones. Some may think that this color would only work well on shoes, bags and accessories, but tailored suits, shift dresses, coats, and gowns in cognac shades are actually some of the top picks for the season. One example is the chic business outfit that was cognac from head to toe which was featured by Prada in one of the recent fashion shows. Some couples who get married during fall season also opt for this shade in their bridesmaids’ dresses or gowns.
This key color trend can create hot looks when used in leather outfits be it tight leather jeans, jacket, or boots. Chelsea boots in cognac tones are earning a reputation for being one of the preferred footwear for the coming winter season too. Jackets, vests, blouses and dresses that are embellished with embroidery, beading, fur, and sequins are also must haves for this season.
