Happy Tuesday~! I woke up today thinking it was Wednesday, but luckily I gained that day of the week back. While I was at Austin City Limits Music Festival this weekend, I was on the lookout for hot fall-transition trends!
To start, here’s what I decide to wear on Saturday. This look includes a skirt from H&M, shirt from Anthropologie (now only in black and white), crossbody macrame bag, a straw hat from Target, some earrings from Forever 21 (many years ago), and some black sandals! My Sunday outfit was quite a bit more casual, including jean shorts, a razorback tank from Anthropologie with a cute bow in the back, and my cute blue and white striped slip-on boat shoes (sorry I couldn’t find a picture).
I’ve been to ACL five times now, and I find it usually marks the last of summer for those in Austin, Texas. Many use it as an excuse to dawn short-shorts and bikini tops one last time, while other festival goers use it as a reason to bust out their newest fall duds. Despite Pantone’s announcement that emerald is the color of 2013, I found it to be particularly lacking in the festival fashions. The only place I really found it was on the tie of Passion Pit’s lead singer, Michael Angelakos.
What I did find was that neon is still very much present, with new and exciting combinations with neutrals for a bright but appropriate fall transition look. There were lots and lots of see-through layers, varying from woven and crocheted pieces to lace.
Above are some of the favorite color combinations I saw, along with a surprising combination of my favorite color, aqua, and the supposed color of the year, emerald. Another popular feature of many looks were cutouts, often paired with more layers.
As a tidbit, ColourLovers is a great resource for creating color palettes as well as patterns. Although it appears difficult to save the image of your palette or pattern, I recommend simply using Print Screen (Ctrl+Alt+Print Screen, then Ctrl+C, then Paste in Paint) to capture your colors!
Tomorrow will be a post about how to create your very own customized ribbon storage out of vinyl rain gutters!
