Autumn is when the temperatures drop and the air turns crisp, the leaves are turning, and so are we - changing our summer wardrobes over to cozy sweaters, scarves, shawls and everything that makes us feel warm and cozy.
There's more to fall color than pumpkin spice. The short-but-sweet autumn season features a rich tapestry of colors, a rich blend of warm earthy colors red, yellow, orange, tan, green, inspire us. And while the bright warm colors are stunningly beautiful, it's the interesting contrast of the deeper colors—purple, maroon, burgundy—that creates drama and intensity. Adding a new scarf or shawl can be an inexpensive yet spectacular way to refresh your fall wardrobe.
Fall is also the time for warm, rich colors, clearly seen with all the leaves changing. From cinnamon red to chocolatey brown, here are the autumn hues and their associated emotions that we are drawn to.
The term hue refers to the actual color of the image, while saturation describes the intensity of any particular hue. When a color is fully saturated, the color is considered in truest version. The ruana's in today's blog are custom creations that can be made to order.

The beauty of the ruana is its versatility. Wear it full length for special occasions over basic black for the full dramatic effect or gather it and drape it around your neck for everyday comfort in cooler weather. Depending on how you drape or tie your ruana you can highlight the various colors in a different way each time you wear it. A ruana can also be folded in half and worn as a shawl.
