#FallFashion is going to be trending for the next few months but I prefer #AutumnStyle. See, fashion is all well and good but it is temporary. Style is a part of your personality. It is natural and intentional. It is classic but not stagnant. The more I learn, the more it evolves. So, during this autumn season, I challenge you to figure out your style. Examine what you feel most comfortable in. Mix and match styles. Be and individuals, even within the parameters of your job’s dress code. Recognizing your own style is the only way you will move past the tiresome task of keeping up with the Joneses, a practice that will likely place you in the poorhouse before you’re place on a pedestal.
Enjoy this autumnal season and take some chances with your wardrobe. Make it your style and not their fashion.
While we’ve been on the subject of seasons, you might have wondered about the word “autumn” compared to “fall.” In the British Isles, the term “autumn” has been used since the 1300s, and the phrase “the fall of the leaf” or just “the fall” was used from the 1500s until about 1800. After that time, “autumn” became the common seasonal term in Britain. According to The New Fowler’s Modern English Usage, “whereas ‘the fall of the leaf’ (less frequently ‘the fall of the year’) and then ‘fall’ by itself gradually became standard in America from the late 17th century onwards” (5). However, one exception for American usage of “autumn,” instead of “fall,” is with the autumnal equinox. (Source: Grammar Girl)
