With Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes in season, and with today being Halloween, Fall is officially here (despite the snowstorm we just had on the east coast). What I like most about this time of year are the deep hues of orange and brown; a color combination that can be matched in various ways. Here are a few things – including some pumpkin inspirations not just for jack-o-lanterns and pies – that have me excited to add some of these color combos to my closet.
Michael Kors Silicone Chronograph Watch: $180, http://www.michaelkors.com/
This is one literal orange watch with style written all over it! Fall can sometimes call for deeper colors of orange, but why not go bright and break the unwritten rules with his piece from Michael Kors. The Kors brand has become one of the most popular watch brands, and this bright color can be worn all year to give your look some pop!

Wrist art is becoming part of every man’s wardrobe, and with the craftsmanship and elegance of the Tateossian brand, your art can become a collector’s item that can be worn for ages to come. This bracelet is versatile in that it can be worn casually or to dress up a look.
Z Zegna Fall 2011 Collection: http://www.zegna.com/
The Zenga brands are always full of well tailored, high quality menswear; using luxurious fabrics and masculine color palettes. The Fall 2011 collection from Z Zegna had a striking take of Fall, featuring looks that were truly inspired by autumnal colors.
Frye Oliver Chukka: $198, http://www.thefryecompany.com/
Chukkas are classic shoes that have found their stability in a man’s wardrobe, and Frye is known for quality boots and all things leather. The sole of the shoe is dressy, but the antique appearance of the upper makes the chukka rugged enough to wear with denim.
NEST Pumpkin Chai Candle: $32, www.nestfragrances.com
If you can’t make pumpkin pie, you can make your house smell like you can! This candle has both the sweet and spicy aromas of a pumpkin scent, with a hint of cinnamon that teleports you right into the kitchen, or your nearest Starbucks.
