September 24th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile Instagram Inspiration for Your Fall Outerwear

Fall is my favorite season for fashion because it means we get to break out layers and outerwear! As I scroll through Instagram each day, I am seeing fall outerwear trends pop out at me, building excitement for the crisp weather to come.  Instead of covering up your style with a coat simply for warmth, celebrate the new season with bold outer layers that showcase your style.

Rich Colors & Bold Prints

Modern updates, like rich colors and bold prints, to classic silhouettes is an unexpected way to refresh your fall style.

Oversized Puffer Coats

Puffer coats get a bad rap for being unflattering but they are practical and oftentimes necessary during the cold months depending on where you live. The comfortable trend has given way to the acceptance of the practical oversized puffer.

Shearling, Sherpa, and Fur

From shearling accents to full-on teddy coats, these cozy materials will help keep you warm and stylish.

Edgy Details

Fringe, mock-croc, and rocker-chic leather jackets add an edgy twist on your fall wardrobe and can surprisingly pair well with a multitude of styles.

Timeless Classics

Of course, classic colors and silhouettes, like a trench or pea coat, will always be a timeless and sophisticated choice.

September 23rd, 2019 by Samantha Furno 4 Fashionistas that Master Fall Neutrals

There is no denying that neutrals are an essential color palette for any wardrobe, no matter the season. When it comes to the cooler months, I personally tend to gravitate more towards these muted hues (specifically beige, black and white) because they are easy to wear, a breeze to mix and match, and effortlessly chic! These neutral hues may be synonymous with the fall and winter season, but there are definitely ways to wear them so that your fits look anything but ordinary! I’ve rounded up four of my favorite fashionistas whose perfectly-styled, neutral colored outfits (and entire IG feed for that matter) will inspire you to wear your go-to neutral pieces in some fresh ways!

September 19th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile These Celebrity Makeup Trends Are Bolder Than Ever

The eyes have it and are the center of the hottest makeup trends this season. This seasons’ trends will inspire you to be daring and playful with your makeup, more than ever, and our favorite stars are one step ahead. From bright pastel rainbow eye shadow to officially bringing back glitter accents, take a look at the celebrity makeup trends that are bolder than ever.

Pastel Eye shadow

Stars like Cara Delevingne and Lucy Boyton have been wearing their art on their eyelids. Bright pastel eye shadow, also known as watercolor eyes, combines vibrant contrasting colors for a rainbow gradient effect, easily customizable for any color palette. This refreshing take on using bright colors going into the fall will brighten up your face, attitude, and overall aesthetic during the dreary weather.

Glitter Accents

Emma Stone and Zazie Beetz have made pulling off glitter eyeliner look easy. Eyeliner is not the only way to partake in the striking trend. Eyeshadow with glitter accents is a bit more of a discrete way to try the trend.

Dramatic Winged Liner
