Fall 2016 is one of “escapes”…either from scary things and bad news or from the dreariness of everyday repetitiveness.
Key elements in the escape are:
*The great ourdoors –
sky, clouds, mountains, icebergs, wildlife
*Brocades and brocade prints, velvets and lace
Watch for color:
*Wine tones – cabernet and merlot
*Gold and gold tones
*Pinks – Blush to Fuchsia
Look for details:
*Shine – crystals, transparent fibers and patent (shiny) fabrics
*Pin stripes and plaids
*One shoulder styles
Fall 2016 …We have big news in the Women’s Division….Showroom #14785 has moved to #14765. It is one hall closer to the Atrium. We can’t wait to show you our “new home”. We will be showcasing Caribe, Et Lois, Eucalyptus Clothing, Prairie Cotton and Shana Apparel. Our contact information ( phone, email, et cetera) have remained the same.
Take a look at the color wheel. There are combinations that seem to work for all of us:
Monochromatic – The most obvious uses the same color but perhaps different fabrications and textures to create an over all look. Think red dress with red shoes and red scarf. With the appearance of tone-on-tone, it is an elegant look.
Complimentary – This combination is made by using colors across the color wheel. The look gives a sharp contrast and results in vibrant prints. It also explains why red heads look so good in greens. Some experts suggest picking one color to be the dominate one and use less of the second color – like a print that is mostly purple with orange accents.
Analogous – Using neighbors on the color wheel give a natural flow to the eye. Again, let one color be the star and the other two play supporting roles. Most suggest using like intensities of the colors ie. pastels with pastels or bold with bold. When you mix them, one of the colors loses. An easy example is a sunrise or sunset.
Split Complimentary – This combines two analogous colors with a complimentary color…This is a great way to accessorize. In an outfit with two analogous colors, add a complimentary color as a scarf, necklace or earrings. We often hear it referred to as a splash of color. Think about purple and blue with an orange scarf or shoes!
