Color Muse: Cabernet, Cherry, Citron

The first few days of March are a tricky time for fashion. Spring is baby steps away, but winter’s freeze hasn’t fully faded. Anchor your outfit in a perennial pigment, then pull prints and colors from abutting seasons for a balanced blend.

Red is seasonless and leather walks seamlessly between bitterly-cold and balmy. Pumps to match the pants make cherry the outfit foundation (around which to build) by mathematical majority. Rich cabernet is the cold-weather color to neutralize a spring citrus scarf. Both shades hold hands with bright cherry in a novel, notice-me way. The silk floral wrap picks up both the burgundy and red to further unify the palette.

Citron injects youthful vigor into the sophisticated ruby pieces. While the overarching color story and silhouettes are classic and ladylike, that neon pop, the lustful leather, flirty peplum skirt and caged strap details are winks of contemporary relevance.
