STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Simple Individuality

Fall fashion has always been centered around a neutral or muted color palette. Dark shades paired with washed out hues are the telltale signs that autumn is approaching. Brighter colors begin to fade, but that does not indicate monotony. With the colder weather approaching, transitional fashion must be styled carefully.

The color black is undoubtedly omnipresent in the fashion world. It has become a staple in every wardrobe without question. Despite the season or designer, black will be present in every show. Designers like Rick Owens and Yohji Yamamoto have made it their cornerstone and signature. In other words, black does not go out of style. In the upcoming fall, black plays a key role in transitional fashion since it is in style all of the time. It is versatile and easily paired with neutral colors or with a bright and vibrant statement piece.

Integration and versatility are two of the most important things when it comes to style. Both harvest individuality and create the distinction factor.
