According to Hailey Bieber's Stylist, Espresso Fall Is a Legit Fashion Trend

As much as I like to indulge in at least one pumpkin-spice beverage per year—not when fall "officially" starts (aka September 23) but when you can actually feel it in your bones—I don't particularly enjoy wearing the color. Some people can pull off burnt orange. I'm not one of them. Fortunately, Dani Michelle, the stylist behind Kendall Jenner's, Bruna Marquezine's, and Hailey Bieber's lusted-over street style looks, has a new color on her mind for fall that's delicious visually as well as in taste.

"Espresso fall" was all that Michelle captioned a street style photo of Bieber heading into Kim Kardashian's 43rd birthday party at Funke in Los Angeles. In the image, the model and Rhode founder can be seen wearing various shades of espresso, from a light-roast suede Prada blazer from the F/W 23 collection to a medium-roast leather Zeynep Arçay miniskirt. On her feet are a pair of burgundy Gucci slingback kitten heels from the brand's first collection with its new creative director, Sabato De Sarno, while a matching Saint Laurent 5 à 7 bag rests on her shoulder. And to top it all off, gold Khaite studs were added, as well as her new signature Alex Moss diamond "B" bubble necklace.

All on its own, the perfectly crafted autumn ensemble has solidified espresso as the color of the season, finally dethroning pumpkin spice after a decades-long run at the top. Scroll down to see Bieber's look and shop the color we'll be shopping (and drinking!) from now until spring.
