Staying Neutral

Why pick a side, when you can be neutral? Beige, white, navy, black, and gray seemed to be the most prominent color palettes present on campus today and around town, at least within the last couple of weeks. Perhaps it is because of the versatility they supply in terms of coordinating with other color hues, or simply because of their classic look. In either case, the neutral tones are steadily making their way onto a growing number of sweaters, bags, coats, and shoes everyday. Emily, pictured above, looks simply adorable in her beige Billabong jacket and multicolored scarf. Her ensemble is a prime example of how the neutral tone of the jacket draws attention to the colorful accessory. Outerwear in neutral colors similar to Emily's has been seen in the Max Azria and Gucci collections.
