The autumn season is officially here, which means it’s time for you to begin restocking and repurposing your wardrobe to match the seasonal trends and color palettes.

  • Riverside (Pantone 17-4028)

Incorporating the 2016 Fall Fashion Trends into Your Image
Considering adding some elements of fall fashion into your professional image? If so, choose wisely. Remember that your professional image is not only your appearance, but also your behavior and communication style. What will a certain fall trend say about your image? Does it integrate with the personal brand you’ve built for yourself?

Always choose your clothing and jewelry options wisely. While one type of style may be trending, it may not work well with your personal and professional image.
