Grenadine is the color you want to wear this fall.

How to look great in grenadine, the "it" color of the fall

Fall is right around the corner, and the "it" color of the season has been announced. The color everyone is going crazy for this season will be GRENADINE!

This vibrant red is the epitome of a power color. It's bold, bright and looks fabulous on any skin tone or hair color.

So how do you start incorporating grenadine into your wardrobe? While some people, like myself, are ready to drive head first into this trend and rock it all season, some of you might wonder how to rock such a bold and electric color in your everyday life. Well, I'm gonna show you four ways to style this color that are sure to be a hit!

First, let's talk about workwear. When going to work, you don't want to be super trendy; you want to be fashionable, polished and chic. So, in the look above, I've paired a classic LBD (little black dress) with a grenadine colored boyfriend blazer with the sleeves pushed up and scrunched. Let the blazer be the focal point of the look and pair with some classic black pumps, a gold tassel necklace and metallic leather tote.

Next up, let's talk about weekend wear, something comfy that you can wear getting brunch with your gfs. This cap sleeve, drop waist dress is fun, flirty and very versatile. Throw a denim jacket over top or draped over your shoulders for a more casual vibe. Pair this look with cognac colored accessories like these chunky heeled booties, crossbody bag and round sunnies. You are ready to conquer your weekend and look fab doing it.

Who doesn't love a good date night or girls night outfit?! You want to look sexy and confident so put on some great fitting black denim skinny jeans and a grenadine colored ruffled top. Depending on the weather, you can throw a leather jacket over it and accessorize with strapping heels and a rose embellished bag.

What about for the days where you are running around town, doing errands or going to class? Well, this look here is street style chic! Grenadine cropped wide leg pants are comfy and can be dressed up or down. Throw on a vintage band tee with it, some sneakers, a chic leather backpack and sunnies, and you are ready to hit the day running.

Lastly, for those people who aren't as bold to rock this color in an outfit piece, you can still be apart of the trend by using it as an accent color in your accessories. Whether it's your shoes, bag or even your lip stick, there are plenty of ways to rock the "it" color this season.

So have fun with it and send me some of your looks rocking this color!
