Charcoal Changes

IMG_6672IMG_6666IMG_6775IMG_6705IMG_6684IMG_6763Details: Forever 21 jeans | Free People top | Vince sneaks

There’s a change in the September air and you can’t help but love it. After one very humid summer, wearing jeans and dark colors is quite wonderful without roasting in them. But here’s the thing I’ve come to realize: Anna Wintour absolutely hates “all black everything” which many of us – myself included – have made our honorary fall/winter uniforms. Eeep! What’s a girl to do when the queen of fashion herself shuns our safety nets? She improvises..

Charcoal is the new black, as well as any dark gray that might as well be a shade or two lighter than the original color. It’s relatively softer on the eyes and in my opinion, more approachable when worn in uniformed pairs. The only obvious element of this look that doesn’t correlate are my flint sneaks but like black, charcoal allows for many options of alternative color combos. You know, for those of us that need to feel a little daring. Shop similar below:

    Love the charcoal top! I agree, charcoal can be the new black since it suits with almost any other colour.

    I love charcoal coloured clothing. I don’t like wearing black – it doesn’t look good on me – so charcoal is my black, so I love this outfit!

    Charcoal everything is definitely the next best uniform to all black. Maybe charcoal-black combos should take command next?
