Digital Studio How to Work Fall's Best Colors 01 of 24 Teal Dominic Ruiz/Loud&Clear; Kevin Mazur/WireImage A rich, grown-up relative of aqua, this dark greenish-blue color looks best when paired with warm neutrals. For the office, consider accenting a teal skirt or blouse with brown, crimson or gold. Feeling bolder? Slip into an iridescent sheath with black platform heels. As for finding the best hue for your skin tone, that's simple: Teals that are brighter complement light complexions; those with a deeper tone work on dark skin. 02 of 24 Rebecca Taylor Time Inc.

Digital Studio A lip stain in a bluebased red shade like berry won't clash with the teal in your ensemble and still provides a nice pop of color. For nails, try a polish in the season's new neutral: dove gray Lorac Breakthrough Performance lipstick in Icon, $22; at sephora.com.

For a strong statement, wear a tangerine sheath with sleek heels and a clutch, both in beige patent leather. Slightly milder, a tank or skirt pops with tan trousers or a khaki jacket. For minimalists, a single vibrant mandarin item can brilliantly punctuate an otherwise all-black ensemble. And though the shade is ideal against olive and dark skin, light complexions can still get in on the trend with a single accessory. 10 of 24 Lauren Moffatt Time Inc.

Digital Studio Universally flattering earthy shades (think mushroom, khaki and driftwood) are mistake-proof skin enhancers. And they won't compete with your clothing's bold tropical hue.

OPI nail lacquer in You Don't Know Jacques!$9; at drugstore.com. 17 of 24 Amethyst Venturelli/WireImage; Jun Sato/WireImage This regal jewel tone is easy to carry off-even in large doses, as demonstrated on recent red carpets and runways. A violet shift needs only ebony tights and booties to achieve a dramatic effect. Or go for the match: Wear accessories such as a belt, a scarf or a tote in a single coordinating shade of plum. The best part? This universally flattering purple suits fair and dark skin tones alike. 18 of 24 Malo Time Inc.
