Whenever the seasons change I get the urge to change my hair, and my yearnings are always strongest in the fall. Maybe it’s the stack of thick fashion magazines bursting with hair inspiration, the new clothes I’m adding to my wardrobe, or the fact that it’s finally cool enough to bring my hairdryer out of timeout and retire the sweaty top knots of summer. Just in case you’re also in need of a change, here are five super easy ways to update your hair this fall…
This cardigan combines the best thing about fall fashion (slouchy cardigans!) with the best thing about summer fashion (bright colors!), which makes it the perfect transition piece to bridge the seasons. I’d love to throw it on over jersey dresses or dark denim skinny jeans and flats–pretty sure I’d find a way to wear this baby pretty much every day. [$90, J.Crew]
I feel the need … the need for tweed. God, that was awful, I’m sorry. But seriously, with fall weather comes my annual urges to adorn myself with tweed in every incarnation: dresses, pants, skirts, jackets, shoes. A touch of tweed will bring some dapper “Downton Abbey” vibes to your wardrobe, and as an added bonus, it’s such a sturdy material that it usually lasts forever. Here are 12 tweed pieces I’m currently lusting after…
This fall has brought us a plethora of fabulous clothing and accessories in delicious shades of tangerine, apricot, pumpkin, and, well, orange (did anyone else just get really hungry?).

Lace, satin and ribbons, oh my! We scoured the internet to come up with the sexiest, sultriest, sweetest pieces of plus-size lingerie, and boy, have we got some hot numbers.

I spent most of the long weekend curled up on my couch with a stack of September fashion magazines and a plate of cranberry orange scones (yes, it was heavenly), and I fell head over heels in love with this season’s crop of boots: they’re studded, strappy, slouchy, and they look seriously sexy with everything from flouncy dresses to ripped-up jeans. What I didn’t fall in love with were all the triple (and quadruple!) digit price tags, so I decided to search for some affordable alternatives. Click through to check out 10 badass boots that won’t break the bank, unless of course you buy all of them, which is what I plan to do…
With the promise of a new season comes the necessity to change things up, from our hair to our wardrobes to our go-to nail colors. It’s time to break up with our summer brights — so long, neon, it was fun while it lasted — and move on to more subdued shades. Luckily, our favorite nail polish brands are well-acquainted with the predicament we’re in right now, and they’ve come to the rescue with brand-new collections of sultry hues that can be worn well through the winter, too. (Don’t worry, we didn’t forget our old favorites, either.) For best results, pair with a cashmere sweater (when the time comes — don’t rush it!) and some sweet motorcycle boots. Unless you’ve got a fresh pedicure, that is — don’t worry, we won’t judge you for wearing sandals while you still can. Keep reading »

I’m hardly a teenybopper (at least I hope not) and my tolerance for all things Justin Bieber is minimal at best, but even I have to admit that Selena looks, well, kind of incredible in this Dolce & Gabbana dress and strappy stilettos. Un-beliebable, if you will. Oh my god, I am the worst.
