195c3997bb109497b31b0c425abd73a4Hunter green is a beautiful dark green with very subtle hints of brown, making it more neutral than a color like emerald. This shade got its name from its common use as hunter’s attire.

Mad About Plaid Inspiration

8

Lumberjack style is so in right now, to the point that the phrase lumbersexual has been coined as a way of describing a man who dresses with an outdoorsy and rugged aesthetic. We’re wondering if the obsession with this new-era lumberjack has less to do with the actual man, and more to do with his pattern of choice: plaid. Well ladies can rock a plaid flannel just as well as men can! And here’s proof:

Denim Days Inspiration

Lately we’re really feeling jeans that are jazzed up. With the holidays right around the corner, adding a little sparkle or flair to your pair makes them all the more festive. Last year we were all about the embellished sweater, but this time around we think its time that the jeans got a chance to shine! We love the look paired with a basic tee or sweater that really lets the look of the embellished denim shine through.

Trend Alert: Funky Faux Fur

9

This season fashionistas are going full-force with faux fur! We’re seeing the most stylish ladies rocking colorful coats that have a life of their own whenever the wind picks up. We love this over-the-top style, and it sure helps that you get to walk around in a comfy cozy blanket! Years ago faux fur was met with looks of disdain, but the game has changed and now we’re seeing this unique textile in high-quality finishes and fun colors. Another added bonus of going faux? The lower price tag means more room for experimentation. You want a hot pink fur coat that is guaranteed to only be on trend for one season? You do it.

Color Story: Cognac

2

When it comes to fall colors, there’s one that is almost always in our homes, on our feet, and dominating the landscape. We’re talking about a neutral that goes with almost everything, and imparts an undeniable classic flair: cognac. The color is like its namesake; woodsy and warm with a hint of masculinity.  Cognac Glasses by Rikke Hagen for Normann Copenhagen | Serving | Vertigo Home
