The upside of drab winter is that it’s preceded by colorful fall, and despite September’s humid streak, the season of changing leaves is officially upon us. To help make those incoming oranges, reds and yellows pop — or to help stave off that inevitable looming gray — add your own fresh dash of color via a new ‘do, a sparkly manicure or a rich-paletted flower bouquet. Here’s where to get ‘em.
