Style Saturday–Hues of Fall

style saturday

I am by no means a fashion expert regarding the past or present. In fact, I seldom think about fashion. I do like to play with makeup but that’s pretty much for my own satisfaction rather than trying to copy looks or look “on trend.” However, I recently got some new fall colors and it reminded me of some palettes I put together inspired by Elizabeth Bennet and Caroline Bingley. If you missed it, I wrote a blog post comparing and contrasting them so it should be no surprise that in both of the most recent productions, their costuming has similar hues. Additionally, I chose colors for the palettes based on the names of the shades which I thought complimented each lady.

Next, I decided to try the inspiration looks myself. I didn’t try to recreate the inspiration picture–I might do that later. This time, I just looked at the shades I had selected. Which one do you prefer? On the bottom is the Elizabeth Bennet look and on the top is the Caroline Bingley look.

Now, how accurate were the productions in regards to colors? I already addressed Caroline’s gowns in the the 2005 production. However, were there really gowns with so much orange and red? Weren’t most ladies wearing white?

 

 

Nope! The costume designers did their homework! There was a variety of colors to choose from, varying by year, season, and, of course, time of day.

 

Do you have a favorite Fall color to wear?
