100 Shades of Color

Autumn is a season when spectacular color is everywhere. Nature especially enjoys showing off what it's capable of in the fall. The tones in the trees make me want to stop and notice just how many colors can be in one leaf. I love color and love using it -- hope you do, too.

With that in mind, what are you going to wear for fall? I know we all love black, and apparently really love grey -- all 50 shades of them. But this fall I'd like to suggest you take some colors and elements from nature and add them to your wardrobe. Be inspired by:

Cozy knits:
With a chill in the air, a cozy sweater is always a good choice. A cardigan is a versatile piece for layering, and you might already have a few. This zip-up appliqué peplum cashmere cardigan has a bit of military edginess to it but still has a feminine fit. I like it belted, creating a nipped-in waist.
