It may be the start of the fall semester here in Fullerton, but the summer sizzle has just kicked into full gear. For those of us who love the dark, detailed look of fall-wear, the only thing we can do in the mean time is find a lighter, equally chic alternative.
I was lucky to stumble upon this fabulous Fashionista in her ridiculously romantic ensemble. Fresh-faced and dressed to impress, she had an overall style tactic that I think we can all take a lesson from season: light hued layering. Often overlooked as a fall color, cream is a soft and comfortable hue that works wonders when the record high temperatures just won’t budge.
This Fashionista cleverly took advantage of this earthy and airy hue, wearing it all over. Often times when layering items of the same hue, the individuality of each piece can get lost in the mix. But if you pair light textured hues together like this Fashionista, you can easily integrate detail and contrast to make your ensemble shine. Instead of a stark white hue, cream serves as the perfect canvas to do this because it has a warmer tone that highlights small details. From her tweed jacket, to her crystal necklace and quilted wedge flats, the creamy monochromatic look of this outfit allowed her to sneak in loads of fall accents.
One thing is for certain, no matter what the weather is like this fall: creamy monochromatic outfits will make you the crème de la crème. With a coordinated clutch and classic hair style like this Fashionista’s, your first few days back on campus will be as cool and comfortable as you look. You instantly get a polished and dreamy look that will help you shed your summer skin. No matter what details your ensemble may entail, this method is practically foolproof.
Even if you are weary of diving into the world of creamy uni-colored ensembles, you can easily get the look by taking pieces that are in the same color family. Whether it through an earthy brown look or a mix of washed out hues, texture and details are what will take your outfit from bland to bold this fall.
