Vogue 1938: Fall Color Palette

Such gorgeous jewel tones!  I love the mustard/grey and mustard/teal combo and - oh my - the plums...all my current favorite colors and all so very "now".  

1. For your dress, bold pink stripes on Crestwood's black jersey of DuPont Rayon; Altman.  For your coat, a beautiful black Botany wool with a gentle nub and subtle stripe.  2. The new colour "teal" for your coat in a Hockanum wool with a flat nub; cCutcheon.  Combine it with a dress of mustard DuPont Rayon jersey; Altman.  3. Deep wine and pale blue - an enchanting colour team.  The wins is Forstmann's virgin wool coating, "Neelepoint"; Altman; Marshall Field.  The blue is a Celanese dress crepe.

4. Elephant-grey and mustard - another new colour twosome.  The grey is Forstmann's virgin wool crepe; Lord and Taylor.  The mustard is Botany wool in suit or coat weight.  5. Autumn will see lavender and purple tones.  Juillaiard made the lavender wool crepe.  The purple is a Celanese twill.  6.  Deeply crinkled crepes return.  The black is an American Enka fabric.  Arnold's blue silk twill; Lord and Taylor.

1. Here's an effective trio of colours for an autumn scheme.  For your top-coat, Stroock's blue-and-white wool; Altman.  Under it wine Hockanum wool (Lord and Taylor), combined with a blue mossy crepe of Crown-Tested Rayon.  2. Another attractive colour threesome.  A Fieldcrest plaid of the MacLeod clan for the jacket; Bloomingdale.  Its colours repeated in the blouse of red DuPont Rayon jersey (Altman), with a skirt in green Hockannum wool; John Wanamaker. 

 3. Olive, beige, and plum - a distinguished trio not many will think of.  Forstmann's green virgin wool coating; McCutcheon; J.W. Robinson.  Stroock's chiffon-sheer wool in beige; Altman.  Duplan's Crown-Tested Rayon in plum.  4.  For your coat, Forstmann's superb brown virgin wool.  Make the dress of the beige Crown-Tested Rayon woven with large dots (Lord and Taylor), with a gilet or blouse of rust-coloured Cohma rebbed fabric; from Macy's.
