Most Popular Clothing Colors For The Fall 2017 Season

While January 1 marks the beginning of the actual New Year, the arrival of a new school year always holds more meaning as far as change and new routines are concerned. New schedules and ways of life to adjust to, more to people to see each day, and new classes to attend can be a bit overwhelming for most students who are returning back to school, especially after a rather lengthy four month long furlough during summer break. Like most ladies, I myself become very excited to see the new fall fashions and colors that are revealed in August. While it may seem silly to some, these new arrivals in the fashion world represent hope, self confidence and assurance, and a chance for a better tomorrow.

By mid August, a few weeks before I head back to school, I try to scope out all of the trends and colors that are planning to make their debut for the new season. Working in retail during the summer at a posh boutique, I love having the advantage of being able to see the new arrivals when they first come on the scene. I would come home from work and explain to my mother all of the colors, fabrics, and styles that are going to be big knock-out hits for the upcoming season.

Shopping for new clothes to compliment the change of season has always been a favorite thing of mine to do and I must admit that these past few weeks I have certainly done my fair share of shopping. From warm Autumn colors and plaids to suede and chunky knit fabrics, the latest clothing trends are just simply too darling to pass up! As an avid follower and lover of each seasons most popular clothing colors, I have compiled a list of the ten most popular colors for fall using the Pantone Fashion Color Report, as well as trending styles and fabrics to be on the look out for this season.

1. Grenadine

As a naturally powerful color, grenadine, or a vivid red will be sure to pack a punch this fall season. It is an expressive and dynamic color that will lead women to feel both confident and self-assured when wearing the color. Grenadine would look great paired with a pair of black jeans or combined with navy in the perfect plaid flannel for fall.

2. Tawny Port

Tawny port is giving me all the fall feels. This color is the ideal burgundy shade and will be appearing in plaids this year, as well as many chunky sweaters, dresses, and even pants/jeans. The color is a combination of both elegance and poise.

3. Ballet Slipper

Would you believe that a baby pink/blush hue is popular for the fall season? Well, believe it! This color is the perfect compliment to soft grey, burgundy, navy, and tan shades. It is a flattering color and exudes health and wellness with its rosy sheen.

4. Butterum

Butterum is the ultimate warm and cozy color and gives off vibes of wanting to sit around a bonfire on a cool fall evening. The colors also literally goes with every color imaginable. That’s a win, win right?!

5. Navy Peony

I am a navy girl for sure, so you know this color is going to be a staple in my closet this season. It compliments well with light pink and blush colors, as well as burgundy, olive, tan shades, and soft grey. As a four-seasons color, navy is an essential neutral color that should be in every woman’s closet. Be on the look-out for this color to be featured a lot in plaid shirts, but also with chunky knit sweaters (like the one I just bought the other day with ruffle sleeves!) and twill and bomber jackets.

6. Neutral Grey

Anchoring the neutral color palette this fall, grey and navy take center stage. As a color that goes with nearly every color imaginable, it will be an ultra-flattering color for fall that will carry through the winter. It also compliments very well with navy, blush, teal, and burgundy.

7. Shaded Spruce

A natural forest green shade, this color instantly makes you feel as though you are under the shade and protection of evergreen or pine trees. Be on the lookout for this color to carry into the holiday season, being a standout at parties and events.

8. Golden Lime

Described as an “earthy tone with a twist,” this green-yellow shade adds a pop of color for fall. It is instantly refreshing and will add brightness to any dreary fall day.

9. Marina

As a cool shade, this color is becoming a favorite of mine for fall. I recently purchased a ruffle, wrap around dress in this shade, and I must admit, I am rather obsessed with it. It is the only true “cool” color in the fall palette, immediately delivering freshness.

10. Autumn Maple

The perfect autumn color, this shade will instantly make you think of falling leaves and pumpkin pie. Adding warmth to any day, this is going to be the quintessential color to wear to Thanksgiving dinner.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

An open letter to my father

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
