Every year, as summer comes to an end, most of us excitedly anticipate swapping out our brightly colored clothing for more neutral earth tones in preparation of the fall/winter season. Instead, noticeably different from years past, color has become therapy for gloomy winter days to come. Whether shopping for clothes online, in-stores or taking inspiration from scrolling through your Instagram feed, there are tons of colorful hues along with subtle yet daring combinations that continue to dominate ready to wear fashion.
Personal style is based on one's likes, creativity and aesthetic which is ultimately a form of expressing who we are and how we want to be seen in the world. Whether an introvert, extrovert or somewhere in between, finding the right mix and match of this year’s color trends that suit your individual style is key to comfort and confidence. Keep scrolling to see how I'm experimenting with three contrasting color combos inspired by different personality types.
Dressing for Your Personality Type: Extrovert
For the outgoing, expressive personality who loves social interactions, this combination is perfect for those who live to stand out from the crowd. Having fun in the Cali sun, I went with a mix of three colors: orange, green, and yellow, along with a pop of zebra print for an even more dramatic effect. Adding a white calf boot for good measure, this electric medley is one for the books.
Dressing for Your Personality Type: Introvert
A fashion lover who prefers spending time alone in quiet environments with limited social engagement will typically gravitate towards a subtle flex. Experimenting with seasonal color trends, but this time using earth tones, these dark wash denim jeans paired with a soft yellow blazer is casual chic from head to toe. With a deep brownish green bag to match, this is an OOTD that speaks for itself.
Dressing for Your Personality Type: Ambivert
Somewhere in between an extrovert and an introvert, this look is ideal for those that can balance the best of both worlds. Mixing both orange and red to create a subtle yet fiery contrast, achieving this color scheme allows one to blend in while standing out. Wear neutral shoes and accessories to balance this look.

Beyoncés Renaissance tour may be winding down, but the queen of the Virgos is just getting started. Since the tour’s inception, fans have adopted the Renaissance aesthetic into their fashions, flaunting cowboy accessories and denim, all while being dripped in silver. But now that it is Virgo season, the beloved artist, whose tour is now reportedly the highest-grossest tour by a woman, has asked fans to break out the silver in honor of her birthday season.
"Virgo season is upon us. This tour has been such a joy and as we approach the last month, my birthday wish is to celebrate with you wearing your most fabulous silver fashions to the show 8.23 – 9.22," Beyoncé wrote on her Instagram Story.
