Fall’s Favorite Color: Wine

The season’s changing colors bring certain hues to mind…and the one that tops the list every Fall is rich shades of wine. But don’t worry: you don’t have to commit to one color. There are plenty of varietals—from dusky roses to deep burgundies—that perfectly mix and match.

wine-CateBlanchett

As with wine, often the simplest versions are the most rewarding.  The same can be said about the minimal Gucci Silk Cady Long Sleeve Dress Cate Blanchett chose.

Wine-OliviaPalermo

Olivia Palermo’s fashion month looks were pretty spectacular, and this faded cherry ensemble was no exception. She paired a Reiss Jacket and Leather Leggings in Cognac to create a modern take on the matching suit.

wine-AshleyMadekwe

You don’t have to retire your colorful moto jacket for the season. Ashley Madekwe paired a pale pink Mural Tough Girl Faux Leather Moto Jacket with Leith’s Long Sleeve Knit Midi Dress in Mahogany and Manolo Blahnik’s Taylor d’Orsay Pumps for a perfectly on-point look.

wine-VictoriaBeckham

There’s perhaps no better way to show your love and affection for this trend than Burberry’s Heart Print Shirt that Victoria Beckham wore.

wine-KiernanShipka

Actress Kiernan Shipka made a splash in her Delpozo Ruffle Skirt Dress at a Maybelline soiree. The combination of bordeaux and peach make for a delightfully sweet blend.

Are you Wearing this Fall Favorite?

Last Minute Costume Ideas

Halloween’s in a couple days and you still don’t have a costume? Don’t worry, you can create your own with these inspiring ideas!

SO7C0612-edit-at15 - bright-2

Follow my Angelic lead. All you need is an all white ensemble and some wings from the closest costume shop. Voila, your an Angel sweetie!

ToniGarn-FootballPlayer

Smear some black cream liner under your eyes and throw on a football jersey like model Toni Garrn. You’ll be comfy and cute in this costume.

parishilton-cinderella

Have a tiara and an over the top baby blue dress? Then you’ve got the makings to get dressed up as Cinderella just like Paris Hilton.

CandiceSwanepoel-Vampire

Candice Swanepoel proves all you need to be a sexy vampire is a bold red lip, a drop of fake blood and killer fangs.

KimKardashian-PoisonIvy

Create your own Poison Ivy look like Kim Kardashian in a painted leaves face mask, green dress and red wig…bonus if you add leaves to the dress.

diy-blurred-lines-halloween-costume-you-know-you-want.w654

If you’ want some attention the Halloween, you’ll love this costume via the Blurred Lines video. All you need is some skimpy nude colored clothing and high self-esteem, as you will be wearing pretty much nothing else.

HillaryDuff-DayoftheDead

Grab your creativity, a Halloween makeup kit and take that flower crown you haven’t touched since summer to follow Hillary Duff’s lead with a trendy homage to the Day of the Dead.

LaurenConrad-MaryPoppins

Lauren Conrad looks supercalifragilistic. Channel your own sexy Mary Poppins with a flirty black skirt, button down, flowered hat and don’t forget your umbrella.

JessicaHart-Sandy

You probably have the makings of a ‘bad Sandy’ costume in your closet, just throw on a wig to cop Jessica Hart’s costume.

See more DIY costume ideas on my Post from last year: Style Your own Halloween Costume
