Palette #1 Red + Sand + Chocolate
Fiery crimson was a major runway trend and stars on the red carpet got the memo. It's a true red- with not too much yellow or blue in it- that's gorgeous on blondes, brunettes, and redheads alike. My suggestion: Ease into the shade by wearing a single piece and layering in neutrals. A chocolate tweed skirt or sand-colored tote and booties, for instance, temper the intensity without sapping the heat.

Palette #2 Cobalt + Maroon + Navy
Blue sheds its soothing reputation with this strong hue, which jumps right out at you, especially when teamed with maroon. A trace of navy will bridge the cool and warm tones; put the most flattering one up top, closest to your face. Or opt for a print that swirls all three.
Palette #3 Olive + Steel Gray + Navy
With it's yellow undertones, this forest green reads like a neutral. A pale pewter brings an icy note to the picture, while a rich blue makes the look cozier. Overall, the vibe is slightly earthy without being frumptastic, especially if you go for an of-the-moment boyfriend coat or sexy mini dress.
