Fall Fashion: Let Your Style Suit You

The time for us to return to school will quickly approaching and college students all over should be getting their fall wardrobe together. With all the trends for the fall already publicized, one must act accordingly. With that said, style always overrides any trend. This is of the utmost importance because every trend is not for everybody. For some, the skinny jean trend may not work. However for every trend that doesn't work, there is one that does. If skinny's don't suit you,then perhaps wideleg pants or jeans will. It's all about discovering what looks great on you. Ones body is their temple or as I call it, their expressive journal to the world. Its is all about discovering what looks great on you. As a female, one should always strive to appear sophisticated, tall, and chic. As a male, you should always aim to appear mature, confident,and effortless. As you are walking around campus you want to represent yourself as an individual who is READY. Ready to achieve greatness, ready for the drama that is the inevitable , and ready for all in between. Your style choices will assure you success. As the late great Yves Saint Laurent once said, " Fashion fades, style is eternal".

Mens Fall Fashion Runway 08 Preview - Part 1

Sean John

The grandiose collection by Sean John was by far my favorite. The beginning soundtrack boomed, " I am Black, I am Beautiful, I am King". Thats exactly what the collection was. The most significant piece in the collection was the half jacket. The colors, the clothing, and the fashion were all generally cohesive. The collection had strength and power.

Michael Kors
The theme, The Reel Life mixing timeless and tabloid. reported, " For the men, in their heavy horn rims and snap-brim hats, it was more Cary Grant with the mean streak of Mad Men, It worked". I completely concur.

Jil Sander
Perhaps Venice served as the inspiration for the latest collection. Most of the collection was comprised of marbling in the coats and suits. The most powerful looks of the collection were the monochromatic, somber, and refined looks.

A cross between London streetwear and the ski slope of St.Mortiz. The collection was comprised of wintry sportswear with crisp tailoring and fine detail as expected by the designers.

Marc Jacobs
The inspiration for the collection, Modern Urban Nomad- A man who's never in one place too long and is able to ship out quickly. There were plenty of top coats combined with fitted tapered pants.

Alessandro Dell' Acqua
The theme of the show ,Eco/Glamor. The collection consisted of edgy, classic, bold, and somewhat timeless pieces. The layering in the collection was heavy, sexy, and true to the designers aesthetic.

Solange Knowles official album cover has surfaced and I love it. Its ugly, edgy, fabulous, mystical all at the same time. The album, Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams is scheduled to drop August 26 and I definitely will be purchasing it.

New Video: Rihanna - Disturbia

Pure Fab to the infinate power. This video is amazing. OMG! Rihanna took this one out of the park. The fashion,make-up,choreography, set designs, and music were all wonderfully crafted. It seems as if she knew the vid would be under scrutiny by the whole world and she did not dissapoint. Whoever don't like this video, shear hatred because Disturbia is on of the best videos Ive seen as of late. This is just as edgy as Umbrella and she delivered the GOODS. I cant stop talking about but I will now. The video will definitely get a VMA.
