Ami was satisfied with the spring looks I helped her put together, so she asked me back into her closet for fall. Sadly, she’ll have to put her hot denim, bell bottom romper away for the time being and bust out her booties because halter top weather is officially over.

The focus of our session for fall was how to work the few new pieces she purchased into her existing wardrobe in a way that was edgy and unique, but still wearable. Last season she livened things up, now she wants to push the fashion envelope a bit farther … but without venturing into Lady Gaga territory. I advised her to pick out a few statement pieces and buy at least one piece that she loved, but didn’t think she could wear. Keeping all this in mind, click through to check out the outfits I came up with.

Fall Must Haves: 10 Oxblood Pieces (They’re Less Scary Than They Sound)

Flip open any fashion magazine this season and I guarantee it will declare fall’s hottest color as oxblood. Not human blood, not cow blood, not goat blood, not any of the other grosser sounding color names on Winona’s list, but oxblood! Otherwise known by the considerably less alarming name “maroon,” it’s a deep, sort of dull reddish brown, which I guess is the color that oxen bleed. Semantics aside, oxblood fits perfectly into the dark, vampy color scheme we’ve forecasted for fall, and its gothy appeal is sure to complement any autumn-to-winter wardrobe (especially if you, like me, tend to find yourself in a rut of all black everything from October through February). Check out my ten picks for oxblood pieces that will see you through this season and beyond … and please, do feel free to call it maroon.

Fall Beauty Inspiration: 10 Seasonal Looks From The Stars

We know: what with the dreary weather and spring/summer Fashion Weeks on the brain just to rub it all in, it’s pretty much impossible to get excited about fall. The beauty aspect is especially depressing, considering it’s time to trade in our tinted SPF moisturizers for foundation, tousled ombre waves for darker autumnal hues, and sheer pink lips for full-coverage reds and nudes — it’s all enough to make a girl want to hibernate only to emerge next May. Fortunately, celebrities have been dabbling in fall looks for months now, so drawing inspiration from them can make the transition a little easier on the rest of us. Behold, the prettiest fall looks that may just have you looking forward to cable knits and crunchy leaves…

Must Haves: 10 Pairs Of Versatile Fall-Ready Shorts

Ah, don’t you just love that weird in-between-seasons weather when it’s too hot to wear pants and too unpredictable/chance of rain-y to bust out the sundresses? Yeah, me neither. With humidity, precipitation, and grey skies hanging in the air, it’s hard to get excited about leaving the house, let alone putting on the clothes required to do so. That’s where fall shorts (in heavier fabrics and darker colors than your typical summer pair) come in — they’re the best of both worlds! They offer prime leg ventilation while still providing the comfort and wind protection factor (WPF) that skirts can’t, and they can be worn in today’s hyper-humid weather as well as tomorrow’s (maybe) cooler breeze: just add tights! Plus, you can dress ‘em up easily. Check out these ten pairs of fall-ready shorts that have already made their way onto my wishlist…

Our Top 10 Nail Polish Picks For Fall

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 »

Shopping Guide: 10 Wardrobe-Transforming Pullover Sweaters

Shopping Guide: 10 Wardrobe-Transforming Pullover Sweaters
Let’s face it, when we think of sweaters, cardigans automatically come to mind — this is the era of extreme layering after all. But having lived in an open-stitch pullover sweater all summer, I’ve realized how one can transform a wardrobe. Not only are they easy to take on and off, but they also go with practically everything, including cropped pants and pencil skirts a la Joan Holloway of “Mad Men.” Since pullover sweaters simplify a look, choose one that has a bit of embellishment, pattern, intricate stitching, or color to kick up the panache-factor without the heavy use of accessories. I wouldn’t recommend ditching all your cardigans this fall, but maybe one of these 10 wardrobe-transforming pullover sweaters will get some heavy rotation in your style life.
