Summer is over. The grind resumes. Pack away all those summer pieces. Pile on the layers, scarves, hats. Change your attitude. Fill your calendar with more business meetings, fewer social events. Start with NY Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
This season is a paradoxical return to a polished, buttoned up aesthetic with an emphasis on edgy, unconventional details. Exclusivity and originality reign with even more prominence than previous seasons. The 70's are back, the 80's are still here.
Back to Cool is a reminder to look through your history books; do some research. As Lady GaGa advises in her V Magazine column, use your "library card." And don't only look to the past; go into the "classrooms" and see what the "kids" are doing/wearing/saying today. In essence, learn the rules, then break them.
Be diligent with your studies. Stay focused! Set your goals and execute them. You'll be happy when your report card reads straight A's.
