STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Neutralize Your Summer Style

For instance, color palettes change from light to dark tones, short sleeves turn into sweaters, and all those cute colorful sandals are replaced with pairs of warm boots. I usually witness this transition when going to the mall to scope out the latest in fashion, but let's not get ahead of ourselves because some trends will carry over to the new season. One major trend that will never get old is the classic neutral palette. One reason is because it serves as the foundation for any ensemble.
