Greetings Fashion Connoisseurs! Fall is approaching faster than we anticipated, so make sure you’re ready and equipped with all of next season’s must have essentials! Find fashion and beauty staples to fit your lifestyle!
1.) A Holy Grail Moisturizer:
Nuetrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel is thee best moisturizer to rehydrate the skin. Dry skin is dry, and oily skin is also dry. Fall and winter dries the skin out even more. Don’t be thirsty! The hyaluronic acid ingredient is the new liquor for your face!
2.) Va- Va Voom Mascara
This season is all about lashes with tons of volume. Look for wands created to add body and flare to eyelashes from all angles. The perfect mascara wand will give you an edgy glam meets haute couture finish.
3.) Burgundy Floor Length Cardigans and Cranberry Colored Blazers
Cranberry and burgundy colors is the way to say, “Fall’s here, but not yet Christmas, darlings.” It’s an appropriate shade to spice up neutrals and casually give life to your outfits as the trees bring new ones to theirs.
4.) Oxford Flats & Penny Loafers
These are timeless footwear staples that dress down those chinos and crisp white button-up shirts with sophistication. Throw on a cranberry cardigan or burgundy infinity scarf, and show your counterparts how to smoothly ease sexy back in. Also, these shoes are perfect for those days your feet literally need a “heel break”. Allow a shiny pair of flats or loafers to do some serious delegating for you sometimes.
5.) Metallic Accessories
Metallic jewelry is ideal for those of us that have a more conservative aesthetic, but want to let our hair down every once in a while. However, you’d die before you pull out that vintage silver pant with the slits at the ankle. On the other hand, pairing metallic accessories with a hip-hugging dress or business suit completely counts as risqué. You can even count metallic nail colors as an accessory. This bold move shows a little risk taking, and is completely on fashion trend.
6.) An Oversized Orange Bag
This bag could act as merely a pop of color featured in a head to toe get-up. It can additionally play on the cusp of a neutral, depending on the shade of orange. For instance, Pantone’s Cadmium Orange is subtly quiet enough not disrupt the entire room, but optimistically daring to admissibly attend the soiree.
7.) Prints & Plaids
The right printed ensemble can read, ” I’m still the intriguing school girl from next store with a little more fashion sense and longer legs, must-see legs.” Show your playful side and those toned legs off! Your neighbors are always secretly admiring.
8.) Dark Lippies
Let your inner seductive goddess with a mysterious dark matte lip exude this Fall. Wear deep colors that accentuate and defines your lips. NYX and MAC brands are great for their bold, socialite pigments.
9.) Thigh- High Splits
Be a vixen these Fall weekends. You worked damn hard all summer, and deserve to let you those gorgeous golden thighs steal the spotlight.
10.) Trench Coats
A trench coat is a total must- have for those dewy mornings heading into the office, and chilly evenings heading out. Perfect to maneuver in and out of while completing daily tasks without stiff, overwhelming restraint.
11.) Baby Doll & Bohemian Cut Dresses
Add one baby doll and one bohemian dress to your 2015 Fall essentials playbook, and score “third base” points towards a home run. These dresses are ideal for those ‘pesky, must-do errands’ day that call for more than black leggings and athletic wear. Mall trip and brunch with your best friend? Add chunky platforms, layered bracelets and one of those dark plum lip colors to set an easy-going tone for the day. Maybe even cruise to your favorite 90’s mix tape and release some of those present and future anxieties.
12.) Fringe It Darling!
Fringe trimmings have the ability to kick up your aura with minimal effort on your part. Ditch the extra jewelry because fringe is an accessory on it’s own. Any fringe dress, shoe or jacket you may come across this season, grab it. You’ll regret not purchasing it in the morning.
13.) Signature Scents
Perfumes are like a great pair of shoes. When you find your perfect scent, it’ll be hard to part ways with it. However, you can never have too many shoes or scents. There are your playful scents, ‘take me seriously’ scents, and inviting scents that you wouldn’t wear for just anyone. Mix and match your timeless scents with new ones. You’d be surprised how much rotating your fragrances can actually make you feel like a new you.
14.) Lace Stockings/ Knee Highs
With a sultry pair of stockings or knee highs, Christian Grey will easily need another shade and addition to his play room. Transition from meticulous business professional, to carefree private dancer with the slip of a full-length pencil skirt. There’s nothing wrong with dancing with your favorite cocktail if you’re happily single. Enjoy every minute of it.
15.) Fur Vests
A fur vest (faux are just as trendy) is a heck of a convenient layering piece. Shearlings and fur vests add a level of “fancy” to the most simple and low maintainence outfits. Also, perfect for date nights or outings with the girls.
16.) Baby Hairs
Annoying fly- away hairs no longer have to be a nuisance. Embrace baby hairs fiercely with a fiber wax hair product. Rock those baby dolly hairs. They’re in season and look hella gorgeous if executed well.
17.) Leather Boots
This is not the days of your mother’s groovy leather boot. No, today’s leather boots come in all sorts of styles and cuts. There’s the edgy retro current bootie craze or the futuristic heeled renditions. Vamp up your personal style with a leather boot to pull your fall looks all together.
18.) Shades and Prescription Glasses
The quirky librarian and fashion-forward business exec looks are totally must-haves. Even if you don’t need prescription glasses, faux frames are really making a scene. Clubmaster, cateye and butterfly shaped frames are great go-to styles that can be dressed up or down. Prints and color-blocked frames are also in season.
19.) Braids and Pixie Bobs
Protect your locks from excessive heat damage through protective and heatless styling. Braids are perfect to achieve this. For an everyday look, braid around the front of your hair, and create a high-loose bun. Pin to secure, and protect with your favorite leave-in conditioner while still wet. Braided sections with a low chignon are also perfect for weddings and formal events. Add hair jewelry for a more high-fashion and elegant look. Hair in need of total reconstruction? Go for an edgy pixie bob and invest in a fresh start! This hair style is cute for various face shapes, so don’t be afraid to let your beauty radiate with a healthy new beginning!
20.) Highlighters & Blushes
Finding the perfect highlighter and blush is like finding the appropriate ying and yang for your life. Everyone doesn’t have the same needs to feel peace or the same principles to appling highlighters and blushes. Even if you are a minimalist in makeup, you can still wear light blush and highlight just to wake your face up, and create a natural inner glow. Find a highlighter as close to your undertones as possible. If you look better in silver jewelry, go for a cooler highlighter with silver finish. If you prefer golds, go for a highlighter more on the warmer side with golden finish. With the perfect glow and a blush color on your cheeks, your skin exudes, “I am having great yoga and great sex.” Who doesn’t love yoga, sex or stress-relieved face? Perfection, is getting all three on the same day…
Be You. Be Beautiful..
