Something Unexpected: Fall Looks You’ll Love

Fall is just around the corner. Amidst all of the school supply shopping (hello colored pens and patterned notebooks!), take some time to get a refresh on your fall wardrobe. For a bit of a twist, these looks blur the lines between conventional and kooky for an “appropriate eclectic” idea. Even if you are not headed back to the classroom, these looks will still give you an “A+” around the office and around town.
1. Alone, a white button-up is a yawn. Take this idea from from “snooze button” to “up and at ’em” by adding a bold pair of printed slacks and neon pumps. Office bore no more!
2. Demure and…daring? Add a neutral leather jacket to a floral skirt and loose tee (tucked in) for a “Sunday best meets Saturday night” vibe.
3. I am business woman, hear me roar. Two of the hottest trends: tiger tee shirts and the color emerald, can be blended seamlessly in this office chic look. The boldness of the tiger tee can be tamed for the office by adding a pair of black slim fit slacks and a structured, although colorful, blazer. This look will keep you on your toes, especially if you add metallic pumps. 
Would you wear these looks to the office?
Style. Study. Savvy.

Black is the New Black

Black is the new black. Black is the color that is always in style. Whether it is spring, summer, fall, or winter, the color black is always on trend. Black is classic. It is simple, chic, and stylish. The color black adds an air of sophistication and mystery. Black is unquestionable.

There are some elements of style that just seem better in black.

Little Black Dress. Karl Lagerfeld, of Chanel and Fendi fame coined the phrase, “One is never overdressed or underdressed with a little black dress”…and it was Coco Chanel herself who created the everlasting concept of the LBD.

Black coffee. A steaming brew that is rich, robust, and earthy adds a jolt of energy and refreshment to every morning.

Black pumps. For all its simplicity and appropriateness, this wardrobe workhorse garners a prime spot in the front of closets everywhere.

Get down to business with a black blazer. Serious and structured, a black blazer exudes a cool authority.

Black and white photographs. Emotions seem to be more vivid and scenery is more intriguing, even with a lack of color.
