I feel like there are always a bunch of trends that “make it big” each season, but for some reason, this fall and winter season coming up are home to so many trends that I am actually very into. Usually, there are only a couple trends that really get my attention and a lot that seem to grab my attention at first but then they quickly fade just as fast as they came onto the scene (remember that neon trend that hit a couple of years ago?). However, this season feels different. I am falling head over heels for ALL THE TRENDS. Plaid everything, experimenting with various shades of red, sock booties, and now marigold.
Growing up, my mom used to tell my sister and I that we shouldn’t wear yellow due to our skin tones. Granted, my sister and I have very different skin tones, hers a more olive tone while mine is much fairer and rosier, but like good little Miller sisters we listened to our mother’s advice and pretty much stayed away from the color until we went to college. I remember buying a mustard yellow cardigan from Anthropologie because it paired perfectly with everything in my closet at the time. At first, I was a little afraid to wear it out in public (thanks, MOM), but I received so many compliments on it that I threw my mom’s warning out the window and began to embrace yellow as a clothing choice.
In the past few years, I haven’t gravitated toward yellow that often but with this season’s marigold trend, I find myself fully obsessed with this beautiful shade. It feel fresh, lively, and perfect for spicing up my wardrobe, which is just what I need during this transitional fall to winter period. When I first saw this beautiful cardigan on Sezane’s website (Sezane, PLEASE come to SF!) and have been in love with it ever since. From the time I had “purchase,” I had a vision with how I wanted to wear this cardigan. I knew I wanted to wear it tucked into my favorite GRLFRND high waisted jeans for a fresh spin on how I would normally wear a cardigan and you know what? I absolutely LOVE this look. It feels different without compromising my own style and experimenting with this new look completely inspired me to keep trying new ways to wear classic pieces in my closet. The possibilities are endless, friends!
