Color Theory: Fall

Hawaii-appropriate picks to channel fall's hottest hues

Hawaii-appropriate fall finds

Fall. A rich season layered with crackling fires, cozy overcoats and thick nubby sweaters. Unless you live here, in which case those layers consist of rain, a long-sleeved shirt and, at its absolute coldest, a light jacket or two.

Stay on-trend by focusing on colors and textures rather than cuts, with saturated jewel tones and pops of shimmer. Our color-coded picks show you how to channel the spirit of fall in clothes and accessories that are still perfectly suited for Hawaii's warmer temperatures.

And the occasional air-conditioned movie theater.
