Shopping The Trend: Slouchy Blazers

Fall trends are so great because they’re usually stylish and comfortable. Cozy mixed knit sweaters. Warm cape coats. And my personal favorite: the slightly oversized blazer. Whether you choose a super slouchy style or opt for a tailored blazer with just a bit of extra room, you’re going to look simultaneously pulled together and edgy, which is quite an amazing fashion feat. Throw one of these bad boys on over a dress and sweater tights, jeans and a T-shirt, or sexy leather pants and a tight tanktop. Click through for 10 of my favorite slouchy blazers of the season, many of which ring up at less than 100 bucks!

Fall Must Haves: 11 Pretty-As-A-Painting Baroque Pieces

Think baroque, with its shadowy drama, rich colors, and exaggerated opulence, is best left in 17th century Europe? Think again: the grand, flourishing stylization is experiencing a revival, and not in the medium you would think. After appearing on fall runways from Balmain to Dolce & Gabbana, what’s old has become new again in chiaroscuro contrasting shades, like black with gilded details and neutral greys with vividly-hued embellishment, and it’s looking fresher than ever. Get your hands on these 11 classic pieces before everybody else does.

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 »

Is it just me, or is Selena Gomez looking oh-so-lovely in this fall’s ubiquitous brocade? 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.

Trend We Heart: Shop The Full Leather Skirt

Not since the days of “Pretty Woman” have leather skirts even crossed our minds. Perhaps Cher Horowitz has been the only girl since then to rock one with class. Because otherwise we can only think of Jersey-accented monsters or brain-dead girlfriends of rock gods wearing them. Yet, this ’90s classic has been making a comeback this fall and we like what we see. The garment seems to be fitting in well with the edgier looks on the shelves—you know, asymmetrical lines, lots of black, and a sort of androgynous, Helmut Lang aesthetic. We’re digging the traditional tight-and-straight cut, but what we’re particularly keen on are these leather skirts with more body. They don’t scream s-e-x as much as they do c-u-t-e … Keep reading »

Loving The Matte Nail Trend For Fall

Today our Catherine is absolutely rocking the Russian Navy shade from OPI‘s new Matte collection, and I have to say, it looks so right-on especially with fall approaching. The lack of shimmer is sophisticated, and the blue tint is less harsh than that whole black nail look that was so big last year. (Black has moved up to the lipstick category, more on that here.) Anyhoo, OPI isn’t alone on this: Knockout Cosmetics has also come out with Flatte, and we’re definitely crushing on Essie’s sparkle-free Neon line. Luckily, the flat-top hairstyle has shown no signs of showing up again. Keep reading »

Fall Trend Alert: Socks And Pumps!

When it comes to style standards, one thing holds true: There are none. Just when you think you’ve absolutely mastered all the fashion no-nos, the industry can manage to turn around any look. One fashion faux-pas we were certain about was socks with high heels, which seems like the equivalent of guys wearing socks with Teva sandals. But lo and behold, what should we find when browsing the J. Crew new arrivals section, but a whole selection of colorful socks paired with classic pumps and mary janes. The styles come in various heights, including ankle and the more traditional knee-high lengths. Is this controversial old trend new again? The more we poked around, the more we found new sock styles that looked like they were made exactly for such a look.

What do you think? Will you don socks and heels for fall? Check out some other looks after the jump… [$9.50-$24.50, J. Crew] Keep reading »

Beauty How To: The 10 Hottest Trends For Fall

Fall is finally here and our girls at Glam.com think it’s time to try out those sizzling looks we saw on the catwalk in February. From bare-faced skin and soft blush to cat eyes and red lips–which one works for you?

1. Bare, Dewy Skin: On the Burberry Prorsum and Alexander McQueen catwalks, fresh-faced models strutted their stuff, proving that less is more when it comes to fashion. Their au naturel look gave them a soft touch when paired against bold apparel.
