With the Thanksgiving holiday right around the corner, thoughts of falling leaves and family time begin to fill our heads. The earthy color palette of the season gives inspiration to any and all that take the time to appreciate it. Every Fashionista/o should keep in mind that color composition can make or break any outfit. I spotted this Fashionista outside of Starbucks, our campus hotspot where students meet to beat the chilly fall weather. What caught my eye instantly was the glowing, burnt orange color of her knitted scarf (I like this one from Paul Smith), which was effortlessly wrapped around her neck. The color was used as a perfect accent throughout her outfit; first as the color of her nail polish, second as part of the leaf detailing on her brown leather side satchel. This specific color of orange stood out brilliantly against this Fashionista’s neutral beige-colored cashmere peasant top, which exudes the Thanksgiving spirit (Here is silk one from Parker). Her black Tory Burch knee-high boots over top of a pair of back skinnies were the perfect finish to this ensemble. From the color palette, to the decadent finishings, to the look of fashionable fall comfort, this Fashionista exemplified what it means to dress for not only the weather but for the season. She proves that you don’t need a big frumpy sweater to feel comfortable in the cold.
Hint: Try layering heavier items such as sweaters and scarves to add depth to your fall look. Experiment with different materials such as cashmere, Merino wool, and alpaca to merge style and comfort.
