  • Haircut Trends to try for a New You!

    The school year is about to begin and the New Year is just around the corner! You are once again reunited with your classmates and getting settled into your new classes. This year, it's your chance to amp up your style and refresh your look. Fashion is constantly changing and usually some back-to-school shopping does the trick. But, if you want to really make a drastic change to your look...try a whole new hairstyle! So many haircuts are on trend right now and we picked out a few of our favorite current ones.

    The Lob - Long Bob

    So many celebs have drastically changed their hair for summer of 2014. One of the biggest trends of the year was the infamous long bob. This intermediate cut is not too short but not too lengthy.  The on trend term for the Long Bob is The Lob.  The long bob has a wide range of variations from sexy waves to groovy seventies inspired bangs.  Even Beyonce went from her luscious long locks to this sassy short cut. Everyone is jumping on this hairstyle and can't get enough of it. Who said short hair wasn't sexy? This is great for someone who wants to try something new but not totally extreme.  Sienna Miller and Jennifer Aniston are just two of the many A-List celebs that have opted for the the long bob hairstyle.

When it comes to your hair, whether it's a subtle one shade lighter ombre or a full on platinum blonde ombre...there's endless possibilities on how extreme you can go. Adding color like pinks and reds to add some edginess to your style is a great way to more drastically change your appearance.  Check out how Ciara and Rachel Bilson rock the ombre hairstyle below.

Not many people would go for this look because of the drastic side buzz cut and the maintenance, but if you want a look that will have you standing out from the crowd, then this will definitely do it!

    Lots of rule-breaking trends this season, including the always infamous no white after Labor Day rule. These rebellious celebs are going against the rules of fashion by keeping white throughout the fall and winter. It's all about how you accessorize and the type of fabric.

  • Easy Ways to Dress Up for Halloween

    Halloween is tomorrow, so if you have not put your costume together yet, time is officially almost out! But, that doesn't mean it's too late. There's plenty of last minute ideas you can put together to show your Halloween spirit. Below are fabulously easy ways you can dress up a dress (we recommend a little black dress) for a perfect night of Trick or Treat fun.

    1. Spooky Tights

    There's no better way to add a unique flavor to your dress than to pair it with funky tights. Whether for Halloween or the Holidays, tights are always fun accessories. For Halloween, we're loving the skeleton, spider web, and haunted house we've been seeing all over Pinterest!

    Haunted House Halloween tights

    Haunted House Halloween tights like these will really have you looking like a fan of the Holiday! It's as easy as pairing it with a black shirt or LBD and black heels or boots for a look that will have you being in the Halloween spirit without having to go all-out with a costume.

    These skeleton tights are perfect for pairing with an LBD and a skeleton mask or Dia de Los Muertos makeup!

    Spider web Halloween tights

    These spider web tights are so chic! Pair it with an LBD and a witch's hat and high heels for a totally classy Halloween look.

    Look at your local Halloween store, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, or H&M for creepy Halloween tights like these.

    2. Animal Ears

    Pairing animal ears with an LBD is always a dependable way to go. Rather than picking up a pair at your local Halloween store, if you have the time, make them yourself! A wire headband, felt, and studs will have you on your way to some purrrfect cat ears (or bunny...or bear ears) to rock!

    3. Makeup!

    Makeup is a girl's best friend, right? Well, it certainly couldn't be any more true on Halloween. Makeup will bring your whole look together, and there's plenty of costume ideas you can put together on makeup alone! One of the big trends this Halloween season is Dia de los Muertos skulls. All you have to do is get some black, white, yellow, and red paint and make your face into a colorful and flowery skull! Below are some of our favorite ideas when it comes to painting your face into a skull.

    This is such a chic Halloween look, so don't be afraid to show off your creative skills if you decide to go with this costume idea! Dulce Candy's Sugar Skull/Dia de los Muertos Tutorial + DIY is a great video to watch if you want to try this look; check out her video below. It can just be time consuming to apply all of the makeup, so make sure to leave plenty of time for this one. And, just make sure to clean your face at the end of the night so the makeup isn't sitting on your skin for any longer than it needs to.
