Shay Kedem - Fall Into Fall - Maroon

For a while now maroon has been slowly making a comeback, but this fall it seems like it’s suddenly everywhere. In the fashion world store window displays are full of purses, jackets, boots, stockings and more that are this wonderful fall color, but that’s not all. It seems to be a growing color for cars, and video game accessories.

It’s not the color that most people gravitate towards for their closet, but it’s quite versatile. It works very well with neutrals like beiges and blacks, but can also look really marvelous with colors like baby blue or yellow. You want to be careful not to pair it with colors with too much saturation or it can get lost.

Here’s some examples of color palettes using maroons that I really like from ColourLovers.com
