From what I’ve seen so far, 2015 is forecasted to be a turning point for fashion. There’s a decided shift toward understated hues, natural lines, and intricate details. This understated approach is changing the way we see beauty.

The looks shown here, which feature bright silvery hues lining the underside of a neutral brown, are luxurious and understated, fashionable and wearable.
