The end of summer has arrived and while the fashion world is coming down off a weeklong NYFW high; we still have to live and dress for the moment meaning transitioning from summer to fall. It’s time to introduce some hot fall trends and colors starting with a color people are going crazy for….Oxblood. (aka Burgundy).
While my sister and I spent our last day in NYC, I snapped these pics below incorporating a few fall trends despite the fact it was super hot and humid…
Mixing pinks, nudes and blush tones with a bold burgundy is a “DO” this fall.
Hello HighLine ~ While my sister and I were out for FNO we stopped into Bond no. 9 which is a perfume company famous for naming its scents after NYC neighborhoods. They gave us a sample of their top seller called HighLine. It’s the scent of ‘wildflowers, green grasses and urban renewal.’ We loved it and the candy-esque sample packaging of course.
How to Glow this Fall ~ My sister and I recently discovered one of the best self tanners ever. It’s a new formula by Fake Bake and I’ll show how men & women can keep a slight summer tan well into fall & winter in an upcoming Youtube video.
Inspired by Rachel Zoe ~ Rachel mentioned at the LuckyFABB conference last week how with some of her bigger fall coats, she likes to layer by wearing them on her shoulders. We did a mini test-run with this cropped denim jacket and then piled on the necklaces.
Create Your Own Carrie Bradshaw Moment ~ The Sex & the City fashion icon was hardly afraid to take risks mixing patterns and prints. This fall, mix burgundy with peplum, blush colored tops, gold sparkly bottoms and sky high heels or glittery flats. For styling inspiration, check out the H&M fall 2012 campaign.
