Autumn weather is finally here, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a fun color palette. Instead of rich colors that parallel the autumn foliage, Kay decided to take a lighter approach and incorporate cool tones and neutrals into her outfit. Her long-sleeved powder blue tee from Forever 21 paired with her grey skinny jeans from Delia’s created a solid and subtle combination. The juxtaposition of such a soft shade of blue and the light grey provides a feel of gentleness. On her feet, Kay wore a pair of desert boots with a dusty quality from Forever 21. In terms of accessories, she flourished her outfit with a Chinese scarf that she received as a gift from her best friend and a watch necklace that her grandma gave her. The scarf displays a collection of colors: white, cerulean, gold, and midnight blue. The necklace is not only fashionable; it’s functional.
Kay describes her personal style as comfortable and simplistic. Whenever she goes shopping, she looks for versatile pieces that will work with a variety of outfits. She prefers clothing that accentuates a woman’s figure, without being blatantly sexual. Shapes and cuts of clothing are more important to her than patterns. When it comes to accessorizing, Kay gets to choose from a collection of unique pieces of jewelry that she inherited from her grandmother.
When I asked Kay about her favorite trends, she told me that she loves the androgynous look: pieces and outfits that both men and women can wear. Unless the situation called for it, you would never catch Kay wearing a dress. Being simple, comfy, and androgynous, jeans are Kay’s best friend. That goes to show that fashion knows no gender.
