The 1970s have been dominating fashion for a few seasons now — and once again, wide-leg trousers, A-line minis, and shearling coats are the norm. This season's fresh take on the decade incorporates romantic, bohemian colors; a seasonally-appropriate palette of burnt orange, earthy brown, and dusty red that look like they were processed through Polaroid film. On the runway, there was pumpkin at Céline, deep amber at Fendi, and a rust-colored coat and fur bucket bag combo from Opening Ceremony. Now we're finding the pretty palette everywhere from Zara to Net-a-Porter.

There's a warm, autumnal color to flatter all complexions, and the shades can be styled with items you probably have in your closet: A burnt orange miniskirt looks great with an oatmeal sweater, and all a sienna brown turtleneck needs is your favorite pair of indigo flares. Get the look for fall with our 14 favorite burnt-hued pieces, from a pair of Gucci corduroys to a River Island tie-neck blouse, all shoppable in the gallery above.
