While I shared a fairly exhaustive fall color trend report in this previous post, looking back I realize I didn’t share much at all about three of the colors I’m seeing the most of in new seasonal fashions. So today I’m styling an outfit that includes all three of those rich, earthy shades. I’m wearing 3 trending colors of fall 2021 in this one outfit from Chico’s.
One of the trends we’re seeing this fall and winter is deeply pigmented coloration. So if you would classify yourself as an autumn or winter, as far as seasonal color analysis, you should love the selections currently coming into the stores. Three such deeply pigmented colors trending this fall are fire whirl red, root beer brown and adobe clay, as named by Pantone.
One of the things I’ve noticed about these and other trending colors is that they are colors we generally consider warm, but because they are so rich in hue, they read more like a neutral.
So even if you wouldn’t normally wear brown or a warm red, you might check these trending hues out. I’m not suggesting you move away from your set color palette and fill you closet with them. But, if you desire to incorporate a trending color into your wardrobe, you could always experiment with one or more of these rich colors in an accessory or singular piece, such as these double espresso demi boots pants.
These rayon, nylon and spandex pants come in regular and tall lengths. I’m wearing a regular 1 (8M) for a fit that slenderizes but is still comfortable. The inseam in the regular length is 31 inches, so I can wear a kitten heel or flat with them. To wear higher heels I would probably have needed to purchase the tall, which has a 34″ inseam.
I think the spiced red (Chico’s rendition of fire whirl red) sweater-sleeve jacket is the show-stopper in this outfit. I showed it with black and white in this previous post. But it looks somehow warmer and even earthier with the double espresso demi boots pants. Don’t you think?
I’m wearing a Chico’s size 1 or 8/10 misses in the spiced red sweater-sleeve jacket. It’s available in sizes 00 to 22.
But while the spiced red sweater-sleeve jacket is a show stopper, it doesn’t walk away with it. Ha! The multi-colored paisley mockneck top pulls this trio of colors altogether beautifully. And because it’s sleeveless, the paisley mockneck top doesn’t add too much heat, just lots of visual interest. I’m wearing my true to size 1 (8/10M), and unfortunately this top is almost sold out. However, there is also a long sleeve, scoop neck version that is still well-stocked.
Because I didn’t have any dark brown shoes, I decided to complete the outfit with my Ally Kitten Heels in caramel leather (use code KAYHEELS for $40 off your first pair of heels). Here’s where the adobe clay comes into play. You may notice that you don’t actually see this exact color in my top, but the whirlwind of similar colors graciously invites this “family member” into the party.
And that led me to select my Coach tri-colored satchel as my final accessory. That satchel is marked down again, by the way. And I don’t expect it to last much longer. It’s easily one of my favorite bags ever.
I added a few splashes of gold in my accessories. Unfortunately neither of my bracelets are available any longer, but you’ll find more bold, beautiful options here. I also don’t spot my earrings on the website, but, looking them over, I actually like these multi colored earrings better. Wow! And right now jewelry (which is always great at Chico’s) is buy one get one 50% off.
I had wanted to build you a shopping widget and fill it with other options in these same trending colors for fall 2021. But something is wonky between Chico’s and my affiliate program and it’s not giving me any photographs to load in the widget. So I invite you to check out Chico’s new arrivals and see the full beautiful collection of these deeply pigmented hues.
Thanks so much for dropping in today for a little style inspiration. Let me know what you think about fire whirl red, adobe clay and root beer brown. Will you just admire these earthy shades on others? Or will you give one or more of them a spin?

Blessed for My Day
On my way to church yesterday I heard a profound statement on the radio. The speaker asserted that we are not made to live for ourselves, but to serve and be involved in the lives of others. He then shared that most every time in God’s Word when someone cries out to God for a deliverer or help, God sends that aid through a person. And often it’s a somewhat skeptical or even unwilling person who hesitantly obeys.
That made me think about the opportunities you and I have each and every day to be the answer to someone’s prayer. Whether they have prayed for help or encouragement, perspective or deliverance, we may be the vessel through which God wants to meet that person’s need. But what happens if we disobey the call? God is good and He will meet that person’s need somehow, someway. But we may miss the opportunity to be used by God. What a blessing we would forfeit.
“And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, well spoken of by all the Jews who lived there, came to me, and standing by me said to me, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight.’ And at that very hour I received my sight and saw him.” ~ Acts 22:12-13
