WHO: Warm honey, November’s birthstone: Topaz, Dijon mustard, Greta Gerwig wearing Rodarte at the 2018 Oscars and the line “amber waves of grain” from America the Beautiful.

WHAT: Still in the theme of autumnal hues to add to the perfect fall palette, the color Amber, a brownish yellow, has been steadily trending. This deep, rich yellow-tone similar to Pantone 15-0850 Ceylon Yellow, which is described as a “savory and spicy yellow,” is a stylish way to add color to any fall look.

WEAR: Marcolin’s Moncler style ML 0077 is a sleek, trendy sunglass perfect for the fall months. This amber-toned frame features a trendy oval silhouette that gives off a stylish feminine flair. From Luxottica’s Burberry collection, this classic optical style B2289 features a honey-hued acetate with a clear acetate outline around the front. This modified rounded silhouette is ideal for a clean look with a slight pop of color. Altair Eyewear’s Anne Klein AK7055 frame style is a glamorous sunglass featured in blonde tortoise. This frame’s oversized silhouette and slightly uplifted corners provide a fashion forward approach to the fall season.

WHY: Autumnal hues like Amber add modernity and bold, rich tones to what might ordinarily be a darker seasonal palette. These acetate frames also offer duality with the brown tones coming through on the face while the yellow tones are picked up in the sunlight. For those looking to add a burst of color to their look, Amber shades might be the ideal direction to take while still maintaining a fall feel.
