Fall is in the air — bring on the browns, greens and everything in between. These five outfits, incorporating autumn's most luscious colors, will keep you stylish all season long.

Enamored by that gorgeous fall foliage you gaze at on those leisurely strolls? Well now's your chance to incorporate those classic colors into your everyday wardrobe. Just follow our foolproof guide below for easy tips on how to wear brown, burgundy, mustard, forest green and deep purple.



Instead of wearing your go-to LBD for a date night out with your man, try a Little Brown Dress instead. So unexpectedly chic. Pair with deep jewel-toned accessories to amp up your gorgeous factor even more.
