Transitioning our wardrobe from summery brights to deeper fall hues can sometimes take a few tries. It’s hard to let go of all that color after all. Fortunately, if you mix your shades right, you don’t have to. In our September issue we featured the dynamic blend of moss, black, and poppy, proving muted utilitarian shades pair well with vibrant pops of color. Reader of the Week Anne Sage took the palette and ran with it, mixing a flouncy pair of culottes with a cozy moss sweater and a crimson bag. "I never would have thought to combine red and green but these shades take basic black to new heights!” she says.
