  • Latest Must-Have Fall & Winter Trends

    Each year, fashion gets more and more unpredictable. With so many great trends to follow this Fall, we had to narrow them down to just three.

    Say YES to White after Labor Day!

    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.

    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.

    Of course, if you plan on being a vampire for Halloween, don't forget to watch our Vampire Halloween DIY Makeup Tutorial! What do you plan on being for Halloween? Leave us a comment below and share your ideas!

  • Back to School Essentials

    Labor Day has passed and the official start of Fall is only weeks away, so it's definitely time to get Back-t0-School ready. And, what does Back-to-School mean? New clothes and fashion essentials, of course! So what are the hottest must have items that you should have in your backpack? And, what backpack should you even get??

    Your backpack is definitely an essential, as it's something that you will see and carry everyday of the week. So, let's start there! Since it's a fashion staple that you'll be carrying day in, day out, we definitely recommend making sure that you find one that you love (and that's practical, too, of course). With that said, don't be afraid go wild when it comes to choosing the perfect one. Teen Vogue recently put out a list of their Top 100 Backpacks for Back-to-School, and we're oogling over all of them! But, we narrowed it down from their long list to our favorites to make the decision a little easier for you.

    We like the bright plain bags because they are simple, fun, and easy to match with outfits.

    For the divas out there, we love the above recommendations from Teen Vogue. They're totally glammed out and will be sure to make a statement! If you love any of these backpacks, you can find all of the details for buying them in Teen Vogue's article.

    So with all of the technology these days you probably have an iPhone, iPod and/or laptop. These are all great products and also helps cut down the study time because of all the great resources they provide and on-the-go ability to do work. We love that you can download even your school books onto your devices; it's a perfect way to go green by saving paper and money! Also not having all those books in your bag makes your backpack a heck of lot lighter; no more breaking your back with a library of books, just download them!

    So, if you're a gadget geek like us, why not glam up your tech essentials? We love to see all the funky cool cases and they are a must have to show off your personality and style. If nothing else, they're great conversation starters for meeting new friends! Since we love pink and animal print, of course those are our go-to choices. But, there's plenty of different styles to choose from when it comes to dressing up (and protecting) your gadgets! Below are some of our favorites - all easily findable via Goole searches and Amazon!

    Of course you are going to need the basics such as notebooks, pens, pencils, highlighters, flash drives, and your organizer/planner. Always make sure that your backpack is stocked with these items because they are a definite must-have on school property. When shopping for these seemingly boring items, make it fun and pick out items that suite your personality. Just like the gadget protectors above, there's plenty of ways to add a personal touch to your stationary essentials, too.

    While it's always fun to add a chic touch to anything and everything, just remember that school is for learning, so do your best job to pay attention and get a good education. Keep those grades up and your confidence even higher! Good luck guys and make this school year a good one!

  • Trends That Work For Every Season!

    Before you start packing up your summer clothes and start making room for fall fashion trends (and Homecoming, of course), make sure you're not storing something that can be used for any season! There's so many different staple trends, from handbags to your nails, that you shouldn't be afraid to wear and re-wear, no matter what the season may be. So, read on to learn what trends you can easily transition from your Summer wardrobe into Fall...and even Winter and Spring!

    Crossbody Bags

    Why pack away your favorite crossbody bag? Crossbody bags fit perfectly with the over-sized sweater trend for Fall! They're also perfect to hold any little items you need for class, such as pens, pencils, and highlighters. The best part, though, is that since they're cross body, the weight is more evenly distributed, making them not super heavy to carry. Perfect for walking around campus! All of the bags listed above are from dELiA's and they're $19.90 each; such a great price!

    Neon Accented Nails:

Mix your favorite natural color with your favorite neon shade, and bam! The bright and bold neon is the perfect design to make those nails pop!

    Graphic Tees:

  • Luxe Lace for the Holidays

    Even though Spring and Summer are gone, many of the fashion trends of the two warm seasons have been sticking around in Fall, and don't plan on going anywhere for the Winter. Lace is one of those trends. But, it's not only the darker lace colors like blue and black that are popular right now - the lighter looks like ivory, white, and nude are sticking around for the colder months, too.

    Teen Vogue mentioned that the lead designers have been freshening up their Fall runways with the lace trend. Simone Rocha, Dolce & Gabbana, and Michael Kors all had lots of lace (in both dark and light colors) throughout their Fall Winter 2012/2013 Fashion Shows. Check out our favorite outfits from their runway shows below.

    Lace is definitely a classy way to dress up any outfit, and it without a doubt exudes the look and feel of the Holidays. The fabric is great to wear to a number of Holiday events - from Christmas parties with your family, Holiday parties with co-workers, or a New Year's Eve night out with friends.  Below are some of our favorite lace cocktail dresses that are similar to what the designers are showing off in their Fall/Winter fashion shows.

    Wearing the lighter lace colors to holiday events is a great way to stand out in the crowd if you want a bolder look; but, choosing a darker lace fabric is always a classic for the holidays, and you'll still be sure to turn heads. Do you like the lighter colors for the Fall/Winter months? Leave a comment below!

  • Fall’s Favorite Color: Oxblood!

    It may have a creepy name, but oxblood (you can also call it burgundy) has been all the rage lately, and for good reason; it takes the classic color red and gives it a new spin. The dark, rich shade adds a sense of sophisticated edginess to any outfit. It is also a versatile color when it comes to pairing it with an outfit; you can let oxblood be the stand-out color and wear it with neutrals like tan, gray, black, or brown, or let it take the back-seat and wear it with patterns like leopard print and houndstooth.

    If you are looking to try the color in a more subtle way, it also works great on nails or lips, or as an accessory to your favorite outfit on a bag, jewelry, or pair of shoes.

    Finding an oxblood-inspired dress will definitely give you an air of class and sexiness at any formal event. When wearing oxblood to a formal event, pairing it with neutral accessories will help to let your dress stand out amongst the crowd. The color looks great on both shorter and longer dresses, so pick one that you really love! Check out our formal dress choices below to rock the oxblood look.
