This fall, it is time to shift everything you thought you knew about style from spring and summer. Pastels and bright colors dripped off ladylike ensembles while men kept it sporty infusing the “new hipster” look.
But this season’s style becomes last spring’s arch nemesis. Now, it is all about dark, serious, slightly-edgy layered luxe. Be forewarned: Black is back—in a totally new way.
