Brighten Up Friday with Lips to Get You Noticed

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!

10 Outfits to Match Pantone’s Top 10 Colors for Fall

FCRfa14-reportheader-v2

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.

4 Hot Babes You’ll Say “Yeah, Right” to When They Tell You They’re Plus-Size Models

Real talk, guys: I had trouble not bursting into laughter when I wrote “Plus-Size” into this headline. These girls are gorgeous models, and they happen to not be a size 00. Technically, they’re plus-size models—but after looking at these ladies, what does that even mean ? From what I gather, it means anyone who doesn’t fit into designer sample sizes, and I’m going to guess that pretty much all of us. (Also, side note: A former Cosmopolitan editor recently wrote an exposé on how, in more recent years, women’s magazines have put more effort into photoshopping models to look bigger (“fuller” might be a better word). It’s worth a read.)

4. Leah Kelley

Leah burst onto the scene recently modeling Robin Lawley’s (see below) swimsuit line, and people went nuts—over an instagram of the shoot. The swimwear wasn’t even out yet! You can see why she is such a hit.

3. Toccara Jones

Though she finished in seventh place on season three of America’s Next Top Model, Ms. Jones has gone on to a fabulous modeling career and even has her own workout DVD, Toccara’s Fabulous Workout.

2. Robyn Lawley

So. Much. Gorgeous. Robyn has worked with massively talented photographers including Lee Broomfield and Steven Meisel and is the first plus-size (sorry, “plus-size,” because, be serious. She’s skinny if she’s anything.) model to appear in a campaign for Ralph Lauren.

1. Crystal Renn

My all time favorite model, Crystal Renn, is pretty much perfection from every angle. She caught flak a few years ago for losing weight, but her rep assured us she was just exercising and hiking more, and not starving herself.

New Year, New Wardrobe

Give yourselves a pat on the back guys, because, congrats—we made it through the holidays and to the new year with our sanity firmly in tact (eh, sure).

I love to start the new year fresh. After setting a bunch of goals for 2014, my favorite way to stay motivated is to clean out the old clothes I don’t wear anymore and re-build with a wardrobe that inspires a new routine. If you’re rebooting your wardrobe too, you’ll need these staples (buying info here):

1. Accessories

Stand out with a chunky necklace—this year, the chunkier (and wilder), the better.

2. A Jacket, a Sweater, a Blouse

Each of these make for a versatile wardrobe, especially when you rotate them with…

3. Jeans, Jeans and Jeans

Worry about pants later—right now, you need to get comfy in denim: black jeans, boyfriend jeans and dress-up jeans (for a night on the town that doesn’t require a dress).

4. Boots!

While it’s still cold out, enjoy the best part of cold weather and strap on a pair of heeled boots. Or, to stay a bit more comfy, try quilted riding boots.

5. Last But Not Least: The Bag

Do I really need to give you a reason to buy a new purse?
