Summer Color Trend: Fuchsia

Sunny skies call for shedding your basic black. We’re seeing this “it” color all over the city—from patent leather peep toes to bow bedecked jackets.

Dress Up

Adam Lippes, one half of now-defunct Adam + Eve, has launched his own line, Adam. We love this button-down silk dress in dip-dyed ombre that’s the perfect easy summer dress—wear it loose or give it shape by cinching the smock waist tie. $464; Romi Boutique, 2512 Sacramento St., 415-922-7664


In the Bag

Salvatore Ferragamo’s fuchsia patent leather tote is a great everyday bag, but it’s roomy enough to double as a beach tote. Lined with canvas, it’s also a snap to clean. $860; Saks Fifth Avenue, 384 Post St., 415-986-4300


Well Heeled

We’ll understand if you want to ease into this color trend with a subtler statement south of your ankles. Try AK Anne Klein’s Foxie peep-toe patent leather pumps in fuchsia-and-orange, with its sweet two-tone bow detail. $89; Macy’s, O’Farrell St., 415-397-3333


Short Stuff
