Think autumn, and you'll picture the warm and vibrant color palette that enhances a brunette's wardrobe. Orangey-reds, gold, bark browns and deep forest greens are a terrific complement to brown hair. You also look great in a range of greens -- mossy to olive and sage. Nature's best browns are universally flattering to brunettes, who can wear dark chocolate and creamy lighter tones, as well as browns with a reddish cast. Gold is gorgeous on brunettes when they choose deep tones and avoid lemony colors. Rich reds work great as well.

Brown-haired ladies can look fabulous in a range of blues; denim, blueberry and pure navy all work. A clear turquoise and cobalt are other good choices to complement your hair color.

Pastel color choices depend on the shade of your hair. Lighter brunettes may find that certain pastels wash their skin tone out. More saturated shades are more flattering, so look for deep pinks, bright blues and greens with a yellow undertone, such as pear.

Ruby red, burgundy, plum and claret are all winners for brunettes. Purple is the trendiest color of this season, and it's extremely flattering on women with dark hair. Go for a purple with blue undertones.
