Style // I Beat the Trend!
I know it’s still summer, but every year around this time I start missing my boots and sweaters like they’re old friends I haven’t seen in a while. While browsing for a little cool-weather inspiration on style.com, I came across the ultimate fashion validation: Fall fashion trends that fall right in line with my personal style. Don’t you love when that happens?
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: gray is the perfect non-color. Don’t take my word for it (shout out to LeVar Burton); Stella, Giorgio, and Vivienne all agree.

I’ve always been a fan of menswear, ever since elementary school when I discovered that doing backflips in a dress just wasn’t practical. The juxtaposition of tailoring and texture is a favorite combination.

Chalk it up to a combo of school uniform envy and watching Aerosmith’s “Crazy” video one too many times, but something about traditional red plaid screams cozy and naughty all at the same time. The combo is just too good to resist.

In conclusion, fashion is a self-perpetuating cycle of faux invented “trends” meant to turn rational human beings into rabid consumerist zombies. Gawd, I love it.
