Colors in Clothes to Avoid this winter

Another season brings to us a whole range of wardrobe options and the runways for the Autumn-Fall fashion shows were filled with the colors, accessories and looks that are mandatory for this winter. Here is the list of the colors that one should avoid:


Ditch the dull colors:

Pink is one of the unusual colors that were seen across many runways from Topshop to Oscar De la Renta. The shade of pink varied from light feminine shades to a bubblegum color that matched the sixties theme of the De la Renta show. So the bright colors are in this fall and avoid dull and sober colors.

Black is still a staple:

The only dark color worth keeping is black and is the favorite color in formal wear. Victor and Rolf used black in their show and made a mini dress with a cape formal wear. Avoid all matte shades of black and stick with a more modern look. Consider the looks designed by Rebecca Minkoff and J. Mendel. A lot of black leather jackets were also spotted on the runway.



Keeping true to the rule of fearless color and purple is a rich and vibrant color; J. Crew had designed a tweed blazer in a rich purple color and paired them with printed blouses that were a rich red. Rag and Bone had used a purple jacket to brighten up a neutral ensemble. Purple also showed up in makeup and Maybelline’s Fall line is filled with purple eye shadow, liners and lipstick that will brighten any dull winter day.

Skip the beige this season:

This fall is filled with rich colors, so avoid plain beige. The looks that revolve around this color are the one that were designed by Isabel Marant who mixed metallic’s and nudes and Chanel’s suits that can be paired with boots for a more masculine look.

More colors:

Colors like emerald, red, yellow and pastels were splashed across runways with designers like Kate Spade, Celine, Burberry, Jonathan Saunders, all show cases these colors in different ways. The colors that should be avoided are powder blue that can be replaced with indigo or cobalt blue. The theme this winter seems to be bright colors which can be teamed with black, red, brown and accessories that you thing will look  great with your look.
