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.
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.
