The all-too-familiar Christmas sweater is a lesson learned never to dress literally for the season. But this year, just as the trees are turning beautiful shades of orange and red, so are the runways. They’re pouring out dramatic, rust-colored garb that is flawlessly in sync with fall. Rust is not quite orange, not quite red, with metallic-gold undertones that place it in some elusive category between bold and cozy. We scoured our sources for items in this sexy color that make it easy to accessorize and warm up to autumn.
