Qwearly Dashing Week 18: Magic

It's hard to describe why we like the things we like.

When we're scrolling through tumblr and something catches our eye, is it because of the expression on the person's face? An unexpected fashion decision? The photography? Sometimes I'm amazed at our team's ability to differentiate between these things. Part of the magic of inspiration is that we can't quite place our finger on why we like something so much. But I believe that the more we strive to understand and put into words what we like, the more we're able to find similar beauty in our own lives.

I love the mixture of browns, blacks, navy, and green. The palette is beautiful, and because they're wearing a vest over another jacket, it creates a cool shape. I feel like they are going to go fight in a post-apocalyptic war... or maybe it's just winter. From: Kanye West x Adidas Originals Fall 2015
