No cozy autumn look is complete without the warm neutral shades of our favorite leafy tones: camel, burgundy, and caramel-y golds. But this year, there's a new hue taking over, and we're very here for it. Greens — from deep spruces and sages to brighter mints and neons — are showing up across all the best fashion finds, and work just as seamlessly with the fall palette you're likely already embracing. Rumor also has it that the color green represents ambition, freshness, and energy (and who doesn’t want more of that in their life?).
This season, we're on the lookout for fresh ways to work greens into our favorite fall looks. In partnership with Fossil, and in honor of its latest Spruce collection, we're sharing a few bold, green accessories that are making us fall in love with the hue all over again. From leather bags to two-toned watches, each accessory features a hint of green and a stunning new gold plating that makes each piece bolder — and even more wearable — than ever.
The unpredictable fall weather can make acing the easy, breezy weekend look a challenge, so it's helpful to keep a few easy outfit recipes in your back pocket. Pair a flirty floral midi skirt with a casual logo tee and sneakers for a polished look that still reads casual. Layered with a lightweight sweater and Fossil's fall-ready green convertible backpack, this outfit is both on-trend and ultra-functional. Bonus point: the straps adjust or detach so you can also wear the standout piece top-handle or crossbody-style to accommodate your busy schedule.
No date night is complete without the inevitable conundrum: being put-together without looking like you tried too hard. The answer? A satin slip dress with subtle green and gold jewelry. Toss your essentials into a dark green clutch and drape a moto jacket over your shoulders so a drop in temperature won’t cut your night short.
Stay on track throughout the work day with the help of a stunning watch, like Fossil's Kayla style. With a spruce leather band, quartz detailing, and the dial’s elegant mother of pearl finish, this timeless accessory is sure to make your co-workers green with envy. Wrap yourself in a matching blazer dress and top the look off with teardrop statement earrings.
Stand out among weekend brunch-goers with a breezy floral dress and heeled booties. A matching sage wallet and compact bag round out the look, with the crossbody style freeing up hands to post your meal on Insta... or carry the leftovers home.
