Our Favorite Color Combinations for Fall

15, Oct, 19

It’s finally fall! Time for autumn activities like hayrides, apple picking and bonfires with friends and family. No matter what activity it is, Heirloom has everything you need to update your fall wardrobe from ¾ sleeve shirts to comfy sweaters! With so many color options to choose from, you can get the exact look you want! We have some exciting color combinations that will transition your current wardrobe for the new chilly season.

Tango Red and Black

Black is always in style but in the fall, adding a bright pop of red can make any outfit stand out. Tango red reminds us of colorful leaves and delicious red apples, and always pairs well with black. You can also use these colors in your outfit to draw attention to specific pieces of clothing. Try wearing a Tango red ¾ sleeve shirt with a black jacket and jeans. Even though it’s not the outermost piece of clothing, the red will pop against the black creating a more interesting color combination. Another fun way to wear Tango red and black involves accessorizing. Throw on a black ¾ sleeve shirt and black pants to start. Now add red heels and a red scarf to create a clean and exciting look. Wearing all black creates a canvas to showcase the red accents in your outfit, making it stand out. 

Navy and Grey

Not every fall outfit needs warm colors. Navy and grey is a great option for anyone who wants a more subtle outfit that still contains colors. We love our navy ¾ sleeve shirt paired with a grey knit cardigan, jeans and booties. It’s an easy fall outfit that you can depend on for any casual outing! For something more suitable for the office, try a navy blazer with a grey top underneath. The navy will make the grey stand out and is a great alternative to the common black and white office suit. 

Cream and Moss

Our cream ¾ sleeve shirt paired with moss green pants are a great outfit choice for fall! The darker shades of green moss with the warmer white hues in cream compliment each other and add an earthy tone to your outfit. If you want to stand out, try a cream blazer with a black camisole shirt and moss tie waist pants. This color combo is perfect for casual outfits or work outfits and will fit right in with the season.

If you need to stock up on essentials for fall, check out our ¾ sleeve shirt. With 15 different color options, you can get exactly what you want and create a versatile wardrobe. Check out our website and grab your favorite fall colors today!

The Most Flattering Colors to Wear

15, Oct, 19

Whether you recognize the reason or not, there are moments when you will see a specific shirt and determine on the spot if it will work for you. A lot of the time, that determining factor comes down to how well the color complements our complexion. When it comes down to it, what color looks best on us is highly affected by our skin tone! This is a profound reason why some outfits look great and others do not.

There are complementary properties within colors that work together naturally when blended, and the results of two well-matched colors equal one cohesive look. If a certain color of a 3/4 sleeve shirt goes nicely with a specific color of bottoms, then why would it be any different with colors of apparel and the tone of our skin? It’s not! That’s why the most flattering to wear depends on the tone of your skin.

3/4 sleeve shirt

Here is a brief list of the colors that go with your skin tone.

Colors for Each Skin Tone

Fair (or porcelain/pale) — Pastel Blue, Baby Pink, Heather Gray, Peach, Coral

Light (or ivory/beige) — Soft Rose, Dusty Pinks, Seafoam Green

Medium (or olive/gold) — Creamy Peach, Berry, Aspen Gold, Light Purple, Dark Jade Green

Tan (bronze/caramel) — Neutrals, Bleached Sand, Olive Green, Navy, Tango Red

Rich (or deep/espresso) — Royal Blue, Amethyst, Emerald Green, Turquoise, Crimson, White

*Note: The title of these skin tones are speculative and may not represent all tones; this is simply our summary.

The Power of Black Apparel

It is also worth mentioning briefly that black pants, shorts, tees, jackets and just about any other piece of garment looks nice on anybody! There is something magical about black that seems to help all body types appear slim and chic. Some people love black so much that they will don a full black-on-black outfit and nothing else. However, we are sure there are other combinations that feature a combination of black and another color that will look flattering on you. Perhaps a peach 3/4 sleeve shirt and black bottoms! Whatever it is, in addition to some of the most flattering colors mentioned above, give black a try!

Heirloom Clothing Color Options

At Heirloom Clothing, we sell camis, tanks, long sleeves, 3/4 sleeve shirts and other layering tees. Each of these essential shirts include a variety of color options that will complement all skin tones. To see some of the most flattering colors for your skin tone, check out our Tango Red, Turquoise, Yellow Aspen Gold and other options right now!

Long Sleeve Shirts and Fall Colors

02, Oct, 19

You may have noticed the weather’s bipolar behavior over the past couple of weeks, and while the temperature isn’t anything we can be certain of day-to-day, there is one thing we can be sure of and that is that the weather is only going to get colder from here on out! We may still have days with sweltering highs in the 80s, but our lows are dropping into the mid-40s. The thing is, we are at the very beginning of autumn! This means it is officially time to switch from summer capris and tees to fall jeans and long sleeves!

It doesn’t take a fashion insider to know that it’s time to start dressing warmer, but we do want to emphasize how nice singular long sleeve shirts are at this time of the year. In addition, you may want to think about finding fall colors for your fall outfits!

The Convenience of Long Sleeve Shirts Right Now

When it all comes down to it, clothing’s purpose is to help us feel comfortable when we go outside! Yes, we want to look our best, and some styles and designs make us feel confident when we meet up with others, but you wouldn’t wear a cute summer outfit in the dead of winter just because it looks good. Throughout the fall, a long sleeve shirt gives you the comfort you need with the weather gradually dropping degrees. Not to mention, standalone long sleeves fit in with fall fashion!

Any time we turn the corner on summer, there are a lot of different outfits we can consider. Boots, leggings, jeans, flannels, vests, jackets, and of course, long sleeve shirts! There may be a few warm autumn days, but on those days you can pull your sleeves up a bit and remove any additional layers to stay comfortable if you start feeling a little warm. What really marks a fall outfit is the color, and there are a variety of combinations you can try!

Fall Colors and Combinations

At Heirloom, we have a variety of color options for you to choose from with all of our essential shirts, but when it comes to our long sleeve shirts, the top two we’d suggest are our Tango Red and Dutch Brown! Both of these options are bold enough to wear on their own with accompanying jeans or pants and additional accessories! Beyond these two colors, you can also create beautiful fall combinations with our black and white long sleeve options.

Going back to some of the other fall looks mentioned above, there are a lot of ways to look great during this season. Whether you wrap it around your waist or throw it over a black or white long sleeve, adding a red or yellow flannel to your outfit will look lovely! One of the easiest yet stunning fall looks is a combination of classic jeans and a white long sleeve shirt layered under an orange or red jacket, vest or cardigan.

These are just a few ideas you can consider, but there is a lot more! Whatever you decide to try, do it now! Don’t wait for the cold to set in before you find your fall colors and combinations. For the most comfortable long sleeve shirts, check out our selection today!
