Start the season right with classic colors from Stella Carakasi. Recharge your basic blacks and introduce softness with winter whites. Find your staples for the upcoming months!
Travertine is a classic neutral – grey with a touch of limestone – shown left as the Take Note Vest. This chameleon-like color can mix it up with black and white for a clean modern look, or can be pared back with earthy neutrals and deep autumn tones for year-round appeal. Neutrals like travertine are seasonless; it should be a classic color in every woman’s wardrobe — and is as important as black or white. A light neutral like travertine makes a great base layer and turns an ordinary jacket into a statement piece.
Black is intriguing, mysterious and radiates confidence. Black implies self-control, independence and a strong will. In the Eye For Detail Jacket, black is sophisticated and elegant. Layers of black allow you to play with texture. A great base layer like the Slimming Ankle Zip Pants can be accessorized with rich fall colors, neutrals and metallics. Black is the most popular fashion color and continues to be an important staple in every woman’s closet. It’s the ultimate fashion color that will never go out of style.
