Fall is almost upon us, and the color gods at Pantone have decreed emberglow as the haute hue in its 2011 Fashion Color Report. Emberglow is a “traditional autumnal tone, emanat[ing] the warmth of a glowing fire – the perfect panacea to the crisp air of fall.” It reminds us of the burnished leaves that fell from our Mama’s sugar maple tree and made a satisfying crunch under our feet, or the blazing bonfires that warmed our high school Homecomings.
Ready to wear it? We’re loving the simplicity of this classic wool crepe dress by J. Crew. It’s just the thing to wear with leopard or cheetah calf hair or patent leather pumps and gold menswear watch.
