So I was playing around on the ColourLovers website as I often do when I'm trying to design a new piece of jewelry and I decided to put my loss of focus to good use by designing a color strategy for my fall wardrobe. The palette above is the culmination of my exercise in procrastination. I selected rich, wholesome colors that worked well together but are strong enough to hold their own in a complete garment. Honestly, I don't need any more clothing. The boutique that is my closet is stuffed to the brim with years of shopping therapy. But each season, I like to add one or two pieces that keep me in line with the latest me-appropriate fashion trend. (NOTE: I will not be doing leggings, no matter what.)

Since I'm a sweater lover and the cardigan has returned as the the must-have item of the season, I decided to troll the interwebs for fab finds to match my Fall Fabulosity color range. The versatile khaki MICHAEL Michael Kors dolman sleeve cardigan is the perfect carryover from warmer weather to Fall. I found this vintage tomato red sweater from Stacy Leigh Atelier on the fab shopping site, Etsy. I adore the cable knit and classic wrap styling. The drapey chartreuse bamboo cardigan by Gloria Gaudette that I found on Sarah's Universe is not only eco-friendly but the price tag is easy on the wallet. My dark chocolate pick is this sweet wool blend sweater by Karoo by Marc Eisen (shown here). As ruching is one of my favorite fashion details, this one may be the next addition to the Juliet closet boutique. And I saved my jaw-dropper for last. I am head over heels in love with Stella McCartney's chunky cardigan in slate gray. So chic, yummy and so me, I'm hoping that some extreme hinting will make it appear in the form of a gift for me this holiday season.
The next time you're looking for a diversion, have some fun. Try developing your own fashionable color palette and see how easy it is to work the cardigan trend into your own Fall wardrobe.
