Fall Essentials

It’s time to turn to the more playful, fun aspect of dressing! Trends and Accessorizing! So without further ado here are my favorite essentials for fall that will guarantee you style star status!

FallEssentials-SpeckledPullover

JOA Two Toned Sweater, $88, available at Shopbop; Proenza Schouler Long Sleeve Cropped Crewneck, $595, available at Proenza Schouler.

A new version of the traditional nubby sweater makes its way back into our closets each season. For fall, we’ve been feeling the speckled, marled pullover that has a made-by-hand vibe!

FallEssentials-RiverIsland

River Island Grey Fedora Hat ($50)
You’ll wear this hat well into winter, promise.

FallEssential-Asos-Scarf

ASOS Oversized Scarf ($34)
An animal-print wrap feels luxe.

FallEssentials-ili

ili Leather Crossbody Bag ($69)
An oxblood bag is timeless!

FallEssentials-Parka

Forever 21 Life In Progress Jacket, $34.79, available at Forever 21; Burberry Oversize Parka With Check Wool Warmer, $1395, available at Burberry.

The great thing about a fall parka is that it can easily become your winter parka with the addition of a lining. Wear it with the sleeves rolled up and easy dresses for the beginning of fall, and with thick trousers and knits when the temps really start to drop.

FallEssentials-FredPerry

Fred Perry Knitted Jersey Bucket Hat ($76)
Ever since you saw Rihanna wearing a bucket hat, you knew you needed one.

FallEssentials-Waistcoat

Chic Nova Pure Color Sleeveless Business Suit Vest, $31, available at Chic Nova; Public School For J.Crew Earliblaze Vest, $178, available at J. Crew.

Everyone needs that one layering piece that instantly makes anything they’re wearing appear more legit. For fall, it’s the formal waistcoat, which can dress up a simple tee or dress, or dressdown a more formal frock.

FallEssentials-TedBaker

Ted Baker Ayef Opulent Bloom Printed Scarf ($65)
Give your look a fresh finishing touch with this printed scarf.

FallEssentials-Trouser

Front Row Shop Linen Trousers, $62, available at Front Row Shop; Avelon Progressing Pants, $400, available at The Dreslyn.

If you don’t already own one of these roomy, baggy trousers, now’s the time to get some! Roll up the cuffs yourself or get them tailored to hit right above your ankles. Then, pair them with anything. Seriously — party tops, sneakers, booties, blazers, crop tops — it all works!

FallEssentials-TedBaker-hat

Ted Baker Karah Faux Fur Hat ($90)
Never say no to a (faux) fur hat!

FallEssentials-Asos

ASOS Wide Waist Cincher Buckle Belt ($29)
This belt is chic and sexy!

FallEssential-FauxFur

ASOS Faux Fur Multi Stripe Scarf, $67.70, available at ASOS; Shrimps Pink Faux Fur Pablo Clutch, $295, available at Avenue 32.

British brand Shrimps started a phenomenon with its Seussian “fur” pieces straight out of a storybook. This season, don’t even pretend that your fuzzy isn’t faux, and go for pieces in unnatural colors, like pastel pink, lime green, and electric blue.

FallEssentials-CheapMonday

Cheap Monday Clip Hair Clip ($29)
Too lazy to do your hair? Got you covered!

FallEssentials

Express Mid Rise Slim Flare Jeans, $39.90, available at Express; Acne Studios Pop Trash Jean, $350, available at Steven Alan.

Opt for denim that looks worn-in, not worn-out. A rip or two is totally believable — anything in double digits just seems like a frivolity!

FallEssentials-United

United by Blue Braddock Backpack ($88)
There are so many ways to wear a backpack this fall.

FallEssentials-SexyBackBlouse

Silence + Noise Button-Down Shirt, $69, available at Urban Outfitters; Secai Pleated-Back Poplin Shirt, $520, available at NET-A-PORTER.

It’s time to bring the “business in the front, party in the back” philosophy to our blouses. We’re seeing loads of button-ups deliver a surprise hit of skin in the back, whether through sheer panels, a deep slit, or clever cut-outs. Wear them with high-waisted trousers and skirts, and never tuck ’em in.

FallEssentials-RiverIsland-Bow

River Island Red Plaid Hair Bow ($10)
Voila! An unexpected way to wear plaid this season.

FallEssentials-Asos-Fedora

ASOS Felt Fedora Hat ($38)
If you still haven’t invested in a fedora for fall, try this one.

FallEssentials-ErinTempleton

Erin Templeton Double Wrap Obi Belt ($30)
Kimono belts are the next big thing, you heard it here first.

FallEssentials-ShearlingLinedJacket

ASOS Denim Jacket in Vintage Wash, $63.85, available at ASOS; Golden Goose Black Shearling Jacket, $1995, available at SSENSE.

This ’70s staple is making a comeback as this season’s version of the wear-with-everything layer. Paired with denim, a leather moto, or just by itself in a fleecy zip-up, shearling injects a bit of insouciant cool!

What are your essentials for Fall?

Makeup looks that Last

It’s raining, it’s pouring, your eyeliner’s running. 

Wait, scratch that. Your eyeliner isn’t going anywhere! After all, what’s the point of mastering a reverse cat-eye if it’s just going to smear into a raccoon eye? 

Makeup artist Janessa Paré created these ultra-gorgeous beauty looks that’ll keep you looking beautiful and on trend … come rain or shine!

LastingMakeup-SpringMetallics

Spring Metallics

To take the metallic trend into the warmer months, look for bronzed hues reminiscent of fading sunlight. The key to this eye makeup is layering. Paré used a taupe metallic shade as a base, put a darker more golden shadow over it then dabbed a lighter metallic yellow shadow right in the center of the lids . “Use a black liner on the outer corners of your eyes in a ‘V’ shape. “This will make your eyes look lighter and brighter.” The shape created is reminiscent of an exaggerated cat-eye, giving a nod to the eyeshadow shape of the season.

Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24Hr Eyeshadow in Tough As Taupe, $6.56, available at Drugstore.comSonia Kashuk Pearlescence Longwear Creme, $8.99, available at TargetBuxom Stay-There Eyeshadow in Poodle, $18, available at Sephora.

Terra New York Lafayette 2 Cape, $345, available at Terra New York

LastingMakeup-TrueBlue

True Blue

The currently trending blue-eyeshadow look is a solid, graphic shape of pure, even color. To create it Paré used a cream eyeliner and painted the shape with an angled eyeshadow brush. Follow along the natural contour of your eye to create the petal shape of color. If you like this eyeshadow shape but are worried about such a dense pop of color, Paré says you can swap it out for a neutral hue. However, I recommend you go for the maximum impact!

Sephora Collection Waterproof Smoky Cream Liner in Electric Teal, $5, available at Sephora

Vera Jane Jacket, $220.80, available at Joie and Old Navy raincoat.

LastingMakeup-ReverseCatEye

Reverse Cat-Eye 

Lower-lid makeup is particularly vulnerable to smudging, but this reverse cat-eye isn’t going anywhere. To create a smoldering, edgy look, Paré used an eggplant-colored pencil, drawing elongated shape along the lower lashes, then used black pencil on the lower waterline to create depth. She finished the look by piling a ton of mascara on the top lashes. “Since there’s no liner on top, the mascara balances the look out,” she says. “For a more playful feel, you can add some colorful eyeshadow to the upper lid.”

Tarte Smolder Eyes Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Fig, $22; Make Up For Ever Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow, $23, available at Sephora; bareMinerals Flawless  Waterproof Mascara in Black $18, available at Ulta.

ASOS Clear Rain Trench $56.44, available at ASOS.

LastingMakeup-LipsOnFire

Lips on Fire

The orange lipstick trend is going strong. For a bold look that’s not too severe, go for soft edges. “After you apply the lipstick, wipe the edge of you lips with a tissue to blur it out,” she says. Dab on cheek stain to continue the soft-focus vibe – you can even mix a little with concealer to sheer it out. To complement the orange lip, Paré smudged a white eyeliner on the whole lid, just past the crease, and drew a line on the lower lid as well. She topped off the eye with an espresso mascara, noting, “This will tie the lip in with the eye. The white is a cool tone, but the lipstick is warm, so the warm-toned mascara connects the whole look.”
