STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Black and Nude Attitude

Colors, colors everywhere. Seen on your feet and even your strands of hair. Sure color can be a great way to express your style and stand out, but neutrals mixed with black are doing the same thing this season! Wearing a black and neutral color palette will allow you to flaunt a chic and opulent look without looking like you’re trying too hard.

The best part of this style? You can accessorize it to the max! This Fashionista models her trendy fur collar, further demonstrating a monotone color scheme to her look. But just because black and nudes are soft and subtle colors does not mean you can’t add a splash of color! Try adding a great necklace like this one from TopShop. It will give you a great pop of color without going overboard. You can also accessorize your own neutral ensemble with this classic purse from Rebecca Minkoff. Both of these are excellent examples of how you can modify your simple look to prominent and poised.

Black and nude are great worn separately, and everyone has a few black or nude must-haves in their wardrobe already, so here are some great options mixing the two hues that will leave you speechless. If you wanted to mix black and tan in a print, there is no greater print than leopard. As Rachel Zoe says “ I think every woman should have a piece of leopard… You have to have courage to wear leopard”. Leopard is a timeless pattern that can be easily transitioned season to season. Try this leopard shirtdress from Urban Outfitters. It combines the perfect shades of black and neutrals to instantly create a stylish look for any Fashionista. If leopard isn’t your style, try out a different fabric, like this sheer black mesh over a nude cotton bodycon dress. The geometric details of the black mesh will attract the eye, and the nude will appear as if it is almost your own skin tone giving you a slim, elongated shape! It is a brilliant piece to wear out to dinner or for a night out on the town. Now if you are looking for something a little more classic, but still fashion forward you should look at this stylish jacket from Rebecca Minkoff. The bodice and neckline serves a modest yet memorable silhouette while the leather sleeves add a touch of edge. This piece truly shows you how great these two colors look side by side. Color blocking is a simple and polished way to embrace this hot fall trend.

Black and nude are sure to turn any troubled trendsetter into a glorified style icon on campus. So remember when dressing to make a fashion statement this fall, keep it clean!
