If there were any one time to dress up during the year, New Year’s Eve would be that time!

Polish Up Holiday Style With Precious Metals

Silver and gold – or as you may be familiar with them, the precious metals – are key elements of some of the most distinctive Holiday looks. Although Holiday is perhaps most known for its jewel tones such as emerald, royal blue, and rich purple, silver and gold are no less important to its overall color scheme. In fact, utilizing these tones is an easy way to achieve the intended kind of luxe, celebratory feeling that is unique to the season. Here are a few ways to incorporate them into your outfit.

Esteemed in Deep Tones

You’ve likely seen us use the phrase “deep tones” in describing a dominant theme of our Fall Collection. But what exactly are deep tones, and why do we place so much emphasis on them in this particular season? Well, a deep tone is pretty much what it sounds like: the tone (or color) is deep (or dark); this is in comparison to other seasons when we have pastels, jewel tones, and other such groupings of colors. Some of the most popular and unique deep tones are plum, mulberry, sage, merlot, brown, olive, navy, indigo, and burgundy. We’ll take you through the Fall ’16 Collection and recommend a few of our top styles in deep tones.

Shades of Autumn

Spring… Summer… Fall… Holiday… Each of the four seasons in a Paul Fredrick calendar year has its own particular colors and color schemes. There are, of course, tones that transcend these periods and are popularly worn year-round: basic white and black are two examples that are generally considered ‘evergreen.’ The building blocks of color are very important throughout;  we in essence see the same colors – red, purple, yellow, orange, green, and blue – repeated every season. What changes, though, is the variation in each hue that we match to the appropriate season. Let’s look at these variations for Fall 2016!

Color Matters: Here’s Why

You probably remember learning how our eyes work in biology class, but here’s a quick review of the science behind seeing color. The human eye has receptors that take in light and transmit this information to the brain, which then translates that light into colors. Upon receiving this data, the brain determines our reaction to these colors or color combinations. Incredibly, some colors have been found to physically affect our bodies, while others stir an emotional response within us. In considering one’s outfit, it is useful to know how the colors we wear affect us and those around us.
