Color In Your Life

img_4540asstraight.jpgFall and winter uniforms among the urban hipsteratti always seem to skew heavily towards dark, muted colors. Loads of black sure, but even when seeking variety many will only stray as far as a midnight blue or dark charcoal. I’m guilty of this as well. I love my black urban uniforms for many reasons but the prime motivating factor behind them might just be laziness. (Who would have thunk – laziness as a motivational force??) Black tends to look chic while requiring little thought about whether things match or go together or look good with your skin tone – not to mention more esoteric concerns such as whether a certain color is “in” during a given season. Black is always in – or at the least, it’s never “out”. As a photographer however my eye is always drawn to those daring souls who flash a bit of winter color, usually in the form of a great accessory. Whether it’s a bag, shoes, brightly-hued tights – or as I saw on Greene Street, a multi-colored scarf and hot pink WESC headphones – tossing just a little well-chosen color into your wardrobe mix is a guaranteed head-turner.

    wow, you always find the best looking natural beauties in the city! i usually bet on black but you make a good point, perhaps brown is the new black…debating spending $150 on nine west equestrian style boots. do you think it’d be worth it? or can i get better ones elsewhere for the same price?

  • Would have to see the boots – but $150 is a great price. Of course it’s only great if the boots are great! I’ll bet you could probably find better ones – there are some insane sale prices right now because retail is bracing for a slow holiday season. Shop around.

  • beautiful!
