Every fall I have to actively remind myself to wear more color.You might feel that with all the nuetral sweaters, earth-toned layers, grays and blacks floating around, it would be difficult to incorporate color into your look, but with Berry appearing to be falls new red- it can be easier than you think.
Berry and similar colors like wine, burgundy, bordeux, and plum are easier to wear than red and are also less tricky to shop for. So without further ado here are my favorite berry pieces for fall thus far, including editorials, shoes, clutches, and makeup.
