One of my favorite things to talk about when it comes to transitioning between seasons are the newest color trends. Unlike texture and shape, there’s a shade of every color for every person. Color is a surefire way to adopt relevant style with each and every change of the fashion guard. Green is a big one for Fall 2013, in a variety of ways, in a variety of hues. From dresses, outerwear and tops to pantsuits and gloves, you can’t go wrong picking something up in the color infamously associated with envy. Who knows, maybe one of your looks will inspire a fellow fashion comrade to turn a little green herself, figuratively speaking.
Tibi has it right on the money with this look. All black with a shock of stunning light emerald green in a simple tunic. Highly recommend exactly this shade for women who tend to be cool-toned like this model. Your skin will look luminous, and any touch of green in your eyes will be given a shout out.
Missoni does not disappoint. Forget that their signature knit patterns came about during the 70s when that sort of thing was really on-trend, they've lasted decades by breathing new life into the original concept. From the laser sharp pattern to the lime green color choice, this little shift dress is totally modern.
St. John's collection was luxe, as usual. Their woman was a lady who lunches in the best penthouse in the city. But still, she's cool. And that's what I love. This fitted military jacket replete with fox tail is cheeky in the chicest way possible.
To the Max
In no way am I willing to let my maxi dresses of the summer go. A jacket, tights and boots will keep them throughout fall and winter in regular rotation. This is asking for a cardigan, a thick belt, and a home. Maybe yours!

You should have at least one long sleeved dress in your closet, they're impossibly chic. This one is definitely a go-to for warm-toned gals. That deep, earthy green will look stunning with browns, purples, and burnt orange. So delicious.

You say you need an easy day-to-night top? This is it. Put it with your office look, change out your jewelry and wear it to happy hour.

Fit to Print
Prints can be tricky and are too often discarded. The trick is to keep the look simple by pairing it with solids, or to mix prints that have the same color story. This scarf-printed top is one that can go casual or dressy, and is totally worth adopting.

On to outerwear, let deep hunter green be the new black for your favorite jacket this fall. Way more interesting than the standards.

Kind of loving this mixed tape take on jackets this season. Faux or real leather piecing paired with fabric adds just enough edge without going overboard.

Obviously, this would be amazing over a standard shell tank, paired with your office slacks. It would also be amazing over a simple black shift dress paired with killer heels. Your choice.
