I don’t know about you, but I find myself drawn to different colors depending on the season. When the sun is shining, I reach for lingerie that’s equally bright and vibrant. But when the colder months roll around, I want rich, deep, cozy-feeling tones.
The start of a new season is the perfect time to revamp your lingerie drawer. Feel like swapping the old out for the new? Here are some bra sets to, ahem, fall for. They’re inspired by the changing colors of nature at this time of the year, from darker greens to spicy reds. And there are options for all different budgets and sizes, too!
Shades of brown feel perfect for fall, from light caramel to bronze and warm chocolate. For people with those skin tones, it’s the perfect time to stock up on nude basics. An increasing number of brands do exist to provide nudes-for-all lingerie. However, many of the brown bras around are still just ‘fashion’ colors, meaning they’ll be gone once the season ends.

As much as I love bright, lipstick red, for me it’s more a summer color. Or one that I associate with Christmas. For this in-between season, I prefer fiery shades like terracotta and rusty-orange. And pumpkin of course!

On their way from green to brown, the season’s leaves pass through a gorgeous spectrum of yellow shades. First, there’s green-tinged chartreuse; then gold, butterscotch, and finally mustard yellow.

But of course, there is still plenty of green around in the fall. Instead of citrus bright, get a cozier feel with earthy colors like moss, forest, and hunter green. An indulgent, jewel-toned emerald never went amiss either.
