Cool Color Trends to Wear into the Fall

These fives staples rocked the summer season and will continue to be huge into the fall. Here are our top tips for helping you transition these style splurges into the colder months!

Red – Red is going to be a huge color come autumn. Find a variety of reds in different shades and textures so you have the option to be bold, soft or glamorous. A great signature red item to invest in for the fall would be a pair of red shoes like the Lucia Suede Platform Wedge ($198) from Ann Taylor. The suede will be a fab fabric for colder weather and these shoes would pair well with a wrap dress.

Blue/Teal – Blues and teals are perfect for transitioning into September. Buy accessories in these cool tones to add the perfect finishing touch to your overall look. A set of bracelets like Chamak by Priya Kakkar Bangles ($58/4 at Nordstrom) helps lend a pop of color to your outfit while also displaying your trendsetting style.

Colorblocking – Colorblocking has been a big summer trend that will continue well into winter. You can wear this style in a two-tone pairing or in a multi-range of colors. To make the look just right for your office, stick to one color and pair it with a neutral. We love this 2 B Rych Colorblock Ponte Dress ($285 on neimanmarcus.com) because it combines nude accents with a burst of bold red!

Leopard – In the colder months, leopard looks sleek and chic! For this coming season, it’s all about bold outerwear that will get you noticed. A sophisticated and more demure style like the ASOS Leopard Coat ($155.15) can work its magic with an LBD or a pair of skinny jeans.

Orange/Rust – Orange and rust shades are the new brown for fall. Use these colors as great neutrals that add an autumn glow to your look. Choose a pretty satin shirt like this Patterson J. Kincaid Harlow Pocket Blouse ($98 on bergdorfgoodman.com). The burnt orange color will work well at the office when paired with a navy pencil skirt and can easily transition to a girls night out, too!

Have you tried any of these trends yet? Will you be wearing them into the fall season? Which one of these is your fave?

Summer’s Sweetest Maxi Dresses

For the summer season it’s all about rocking a gorgeous maxi dress, an easy style that’s made simple or glam with the right accessories. Check out a few marvelous maxi dresses with great patterns and designs that’ll give your summer wardrobe a bit of a kick!

The Aryn K In the Monet One Shoulder Print Maxi Dress ($91 on Lulus.com) boasts a paintbrush theme filled with colors that will make you glow. The flirty effect of the sleeve adds a feminine touch that’s unforgettable for any occasion.

A simple maxi dress with the right details can make finding something to wear very easy. That’s why I’m totally digging Mandee’s Crochet Maxi Dress ($34.99) with its embellished extras and crochet designs. This style brings simplicity and glam to all ladies on the go.

A statement-maker is always key for fun summer BBQs, and the A|Wear Snake Print Maxi Dress ($37.93 from ASOS) fits the bill perfectly. The snakeskin print and the bold colors make this maxi dress a fashionable must. Ruffles and frilly tiers round out this fun mix!

If you like being a trendsetter, it’s all about rocking Gypsy 05’s Tye Dye Cotton Maxi Dress ($105 on ShopPlanetBlue.com). The look is fabulous for adding vintage jewels, a fedora or an oversized tote. With its blend of summer’s hottest two shades (coral and white!), the asymmetric skirt and the haute hippie appeal, this one is worth the splurge!

mark’s It’s A Long Story Dress ($34) makes for the perfect poolside frock. The black and white theme is classic, but the touch of peach adds a fabulous little pop. This maxi gives you the option of showing it off as a halter or sporting it as a strapless style, making it a great transition piece from the pool to late-night cocktail parties.

Your 5-Minute Beauty Routine

Applying makeup doesn’t have to be a long and expensive process. Check out my top picks for beauty products/makeup that will have you done up in just five minutes, all for under $25 each! Makeup enthusiasts and phobes alike are sure to be down with these product suggestions that will have you looking fierce, fast.

Summer beauty starts with getting skin pampered and hydrated, and the best thing to get your face looking its best is a…facial. Garden Botanika’s Corrective Clearing Face Mask ($18) gives your face a smooth look right from the first application. We all know that first impressions are everything, so make sure a good facial is part of your beauty routine.

This season, bronzers are all the rage, and every woman wants that special glow. Physicians Formula’s Shimmer Strips Custom Bronzer, Blush & Eye Shadow ($11.95) is a complete compact for every aspect of your look. Whether you want to rock a bronzed look on the eyes or cheeks, this palette has you set for a glamorous glow on the go!

To achieve a flawless look, your pout has to be perfect, and a fun shade always attracts a ton of attention. A great pop of color that’s suitable for most skin tones is Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Ultra Lipstick ($22.50) in Watermelon. The color is vibrant and fresh, and will keep your lips nourished while you’re looking glam.

Want to make a simple look pop on a whole new level? I am crazed over Jemma Kidd’s JK In Vogue Perfect Blush Collection ($18 at Target) because it’s a great blend of corals, peaches, fuchsia and a splash of shimmer. Each blush palette holds its own with the color schemes they feature, but our favorite is 5th Avenue because it really makes your cheeks come alive!

We all need to keep our skin moisturized with SPF, but sometimes that awful white residue is less than appealing. Now, the best way to get SPF is with a touch of color like e.l.f.’s Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($3), which comes in a variety of skin shades and is very lightweight. It’s such a necessity for a quick color boost and it helps keep your skin protected.

Want to achieve a simple look on a less glamorous day? Grab a moisturizer that’s also a simple lip balm with a touch of color. Avon’s Slick Tint for Lips ($.99) is great for not being too much, but still showing off your pucker. The lip balm comes in a sheer pink, a deep reddish wine and a rosy pink, all at an amazing price!
