Let’s put away the two piece—aren’t we a little bored with bikinis anyway? I’m ready to try something a little different this summer, especially this mesh and olive number by River Island. Comment below with your suggestions for a one-piece this summer!
Friday is a great day to jump into your relaxed, casual, weekend-chic look, but sometimes you want to glam it up juuuust a smidge. Simply adding a flash of pink or red (or coral or, why not, orange) to your beauty routine can quickly up your style’s gorgeous quotient. Love!
They’re back! After announcing Radiant Orchid as the 2014 Color of the Year, Pantone has followed up with its top 10 colors for fall: Radiant Orchid, Royal Blue, Aluminum, Aurora Red, Misted Yellow, Sangria, Mauve Mist, Cognac, Bright Cobalt, Cypress.
“This is a season of untypical colors—more reflective of the imagination and ingenuity, which makes for an artful collection of colors and combinations not bound by the usual hues for fall,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “There is a feminine mystique that is reflected throughout the palette, inspired by the increasing need for women everywhere to create an individual imprint.”
We’ve put together our own little guide on wearing the top 10 colors for fall. For buying info, visit Polyvore.
Christmas parties! New Year’s parties! And a few birthdays! Don’t you love this time of year? Not just because you get to snuggle in with your friends and family for holiday cheer and yummy eggnog (well, some of us love it), but also because that means shopping. Yes, shopping for your loved ones—but it doesn’t hurt to snag yourself a new dress for the new year, now does it? For details on the items below, visit Polyvore.
It has finally grown a bit chilly in Los Angeles. Since we never seem to fully dive into winter weather here, a heavy winter coat isn’t always necessary. But who can resist—especially with these cuties that I found on Polyvore.
Here’s the good news: You’ve got a lot (a lot) of options for choosing what trends to incorporate into your wardrobe this fall. Possibly too many? Eh, no matter. This season’s looks are so varied that you can wear multiple trends with one piece of clothing. But don’t go overboard—as fun as it is to be on trend, it’s even better to take just a little bit of trendy and then blow it up with your own style. My favorite thing to do is start small and then grow from there.
Fall Trend: Thigh-High Boots
After a few winters full of ankle boots, we finally get to add some drama to our wardrobe with the simple move of slipping into thigh-high boots. Be careful here: If you combine thigh high’s with a mini and a crop top, then you’ll look more go-go dancer than a chic woman of style. Pair the boots with tights, then a mini and a floppy, wide-brim hat to find a happy medium between the two. Don’t forget to include a top that fully covers your torso.
Double-Duty Trend: Leather Thigh-High Boots
Fall Trend: The Satchel
And to be more exact, Cambridge satchels. They are classic and worth the investment. Choose any color, and you’ll love it forever because though the trend may be a satchel style, a Cambridge satchel is more than a trend—it’s timeless.*
Double-Duty Trend: Emerald Green Cambridge Satchel
*No one paid me to write that. I swear, they’re just that amazing.
Fall Trend: Tartan Punk
We saw tartan become popular a few seasons ago, but this time it’s more associated with a punk trend than grunge. And you don’t need to go full-on punk—just a little bit’s enough to get the message across.
Double-Duty Trend: Tartan Punk Mini Skirt
Fall Trend: Statement Necklace
I know, I know, we’ve been wearing statement necklaces, for, like, everrr. But there’s a good reason: They look amazing! Really, I can’t stress this enough because it’s my favorite thing, to stand out with a statement necklace.
Double-Duty Trend: Fur-Covered Statement Necklace
Fall Trend: Chunky-Knit Sweater
OK, I admit that I’m throwing this in the mix because chunky knits were all over the runway for Spring/Summer 2014, but it’s winter, guys. Of course, we can wear our chunky knits a bit early.
