Oxblood is the color of Fall/Winter 2012. Burgundy is Oxblood's cheerier cousin and a perfect wintertime color story. This daytime outfit shows you how easy it is to use colorblocking so that you don't end up looking like a blob of burgundy.
Pantone has announced that emerald will be the color of 2013. Didn't we predict it here first, dear readers? See my previous blog on emerald. Get a head start and go for green this holiday party season. And green isn't just for the clothes--accessorize with a green clutch and cocktail ring!
Midnight Blue brings the va va voom to black-tie dressing. This velvet dress is rich and warm from the color alone, so you don't have to complicate it with accessories. See how inexpensive this dress is!Adrianna Papell Draped One Shoulder Velvet Blouson Gown $168

When you're letting a color inspire your look, you don't have to stick to one shade. In this outfit, the inspiration is purple, but I use all different shades to make a complex layered look.
Black is a color too, no? Black, AKA the signature color of New York City, never gets tired if you do it right. It's flattering, chic, and sophisticated. When you add different materials and patterns--like on these tights--you create a fun, interesting black outfit that works from day-to-night.
The combination of black and gold is classic. The gold really makes this outfit pop like champagne on New Year's Eve! The velvet floral jeans make this outfit casual but cool.
