I, E., always find it difficult to dress well during the last month of summer. Maybe it’s the heat or the fact that stores start showcasing snuggly chic sweater dresses in August, but for whatever reason it helps me to have some sort of structure or challenge when pushing through the final month before the fall semester begins.
So, much as we did last summer, we’ll be revisiting our Fashion 101 modules on color combinations, looking for fresh ways to pair outfits and accessories and pushing our color comfort zones. S. is excited to finally have access to a whole closet of options again (rather than her module wardrobe from a year abroad), A. is ready to utilize her growing collection of colored belts, E. can’t wait to play more with her new bright footwear, and L. is eager to kick-start her time at Academichic with some pops of color!
We’ll be starting with “two-thirds” and complementary combinations. (And in case you’re like me and need a little handy cheat sheet, you can download a little 4×6 printable pdf of the color wheel with some examples of the color combinations we’ll be exploring. Yes, I’m sticking mine on my dresser.)
