STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Earthy, Muted and Edgy

Style Advice of the Week

Earth tones are a color scheme that come from a palette of browns, greens, tans etc. They are flat and muted and come in a variety of natural colors that we find in dirt, moss, trees or rocks. While the leaves are changing to bright and vibrant colors that light up our world, dressing in earth tones is a classy approach to fall fashion.

Of course statements can be made with bold pieces and ensembles, however, being able to make a statement with neutrals is a sure sign of a true Fashionista. This earth toned color scheme provides a pleasant, yet edgy look that will keep you warm and obviously make a statement on campus.

This Fashionista wore an army green tee from TOBI and matching army jacket from Nordstrom. Her white pants from American eagle matched perfectly with her leg warmers from Kohl’s and knee-high brown boots by Steve Madden. She also matched her outfit with three great earthy accessories to keep the color scheme consistent. A cream colored scarf from Nordstrom was a great choice for the cool winds and her watch from American Eagle and and ring from Kohl’s to match.

This look allowed this Fashionista to strut around confidently among other bold statements. Just because she wasn’t sticking out like a sore thumb in the crowd with her ensemble, does not mean she wasn’t turning heads.

Switching up your style approach every now and then is never a bad idea. If you are a Fashionista/o that feels safe wearing only one color and/or color scheme try and step outside of your comfort zone. Getting crafty with what you have in your closest is a great way to discover new styles that work for you!
