STYLE GURU STYLE: Camel is the New Black

If I have piqued anyone’s interest with this outfit, to quote Newton, “it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” Kim Kardashian and the stylish blogger Aimee Song have fashioned some killer camel-colored ensembles this past year, but they are not the giants I am referring to. I am referring to the fashion giant Marc Jacobs and the fall 2014 ready-to-wear runaway show. 

This show was all about neutrals, neutrals and more neutrals. They say you can never go wrong with keeping things simple but as this runway show depicted, keeping colors simple does not mean keeping things boring. In fact, most people wouldn’t walk out the door dressed in a mostly monochrome outfit that is not black or white. Why not go over the top when trying to keep things simple? I think that was the brilliance of this show—it was simple and at the same time, it wasn’t.

Although I wish I could be Kendall Jenner working the actual Marc Jacobs’ runaway, I am still pretty content with mimicking the Marc Jacobs’ neutral trend on the the 8:00 a.m. “runaway” to class.

I wore my camel collarless coat over a thin camel-colored sweater from J.Crew and paired it with a neutral tan skirt from Zara. I threw on this necklace because as someone who is huge on statement accessories, I clearly had no other choice.

One of the great things I love about winter fashion that I incorporated in this outfit is that you can play with fabrics and textures a lot. The thin cashmere sweater is one of my favorites because it is so soft and warm, but the skirt honestly takes the cake. It feels like I am wearing a soft throw blanket on my legs. The jacket has sort of a very subtle boucle texture. I think the combination of three totally different textures really helps complement the simple neutrals of the outfit.
