Neutral colors have never really been a big part of my wardrobe. I’ve always worried that if I were to wear cool colors like taupe, olive or pewter, I would look boring and lifeless. In short, I worried that I would look like a rock. And, as a girl who has a very fair and pale skin tone, I’ve always tried to lean towards the warmer fall colors like rust and beige in order to avoid such a dilemma. So, when I saw this Fashionista, I was very surprised and pleased to see how the cooler neutral colors worked on her skin tone. They in no way wash her out or make her look lifeless at all. In fact, the colors in her outfit complement her gorgeous red hair and adorable smile in the best of ways. My initial hypothesis about neutrals was clearly disproven.
I caught this Fashionista taking a stroll on a chillier-than-usual afternoon. She’s sporting an adorable black and white striped dress, a structured olive jacket, a pewter wool infinity scarf, a pair of classic black flats and a taupe tote. The jacket and scarf combination is defiantly the central focus of the piece. With the metallic gold buttons on the jacket and the wool texture of the scarf, a hard-soft contrast is created. I love the east-coast preppy aura of her outfit – it’s very GW.
Perhaps the best aspect of this Fashionista’s outfit is the fact that each piece can be worn individually to create an entirely different look. The jacket can be worn with jeans or shorts and paired with boots or sandals to create a polished, casual look. Also, the wool infinity scarf is particularly versatile in the fall and upcoming winter seasons due to its practicality and versatility. Though wool is great for the season, infinity scarves are also available in bold prints and other fabrics. And finally, black flats are an imperative part of every girl’s wardrobe. Not only are they cute and stylish, but they go with almost every outfit for fall, too!
Fall and winter are defiantly my favorite seasons at GW because of the awesome Fashionistas like this one! Who knows what amazing styles I’ll come across this coming week?
