Dark Neutrals and Docs: College Gals Doin’ It Right.



I’d really like to start this post with a warning and a very small rant:


I am not a photographer. I don’t even own a camera besides the one on my phone. Moreover, even if I did have a camera I’m still not a photographer. An expensive camera does not a photographer make. I am documenting things I like and most of the time there will be photos involved. I mean, visuals are always nice, right?


Okay, now that that’s over with…


CLOTHES! I was really excited when I saw the two ladies above in my classes. First, because they look fabulous and I love everything about them. Secondly because I didn’t have to stalk them on the streets of Chicago to get their pictures (I should probably get over this fear if I want to really expose my tastes, but we can save the topic of my fears for another post). But putting my shyness/laziness aside, I really do like what these girls did.


Lets start with the girl on the left. I’m very partial to her dark aesthetic. I love dark neutrals, especially black. This outfit just goes to show that you don’t need “color” to look lively and interesting. She’s sporting harem pants, a cropped tank and a cardigan. Simple, but looks so good. She accessorized lightly, only sporting a few bracelets and a necklace. But what really did me in was her head wrap. There are no words. Except maybe a really excited “YES.” I’d also like to add that her lipstick really pulled everything together. The dark plum shade complemented her very well, and my eyes thank her for that.


Gal on the right: I caught her right when we were about to part ways after our Fashion Business class. Lately I’ve been obsessed with Doc Martens and the second I saw her sporting a pair I got really eager. As I said before, I love dark colors. However, sometimes you see something that doesn’t really match the look you usually like but that doesn’t mean you can’t like it. I love this girl’s dress. I’ve never been a girl that was really into florals but this dress is fantastic (this is actually the Modern Chinois Dress from Free People, found here). The wide sleeves…the loose fit…it’s so pretty. And the Docs! I LOVE DOC MARTENS. I really do. Lastly, the outfit wouldn’t be complete without the small show of sock under her boots. Everyone should wear their boots and pull up their socks a little above the boot. Guys too. That should be a law. Your socks are meant to play peek-a-boo. I promise.


That’s it for today. I’ll make sure to find more fabulous people. It shouldn’t be too hard…right?
