Printed silk scarves are a must this season, worn every way you can think of… head wraps, around the neck, flowing from the strap of your handbag… it’s such a gorgeous and simple way to add style and life to any basic outfit of solid colors. And to take it one step further…

I die for this color. Burgundy is by far the biggest color for Fall and I so badly want a burgundy handbag, leather jacket, corduroy jeans, wide-brimmed hat, shoes… anything and everything! A girl can dream… but in the meantime, who knew burgundy lips could be so gorgeous too? I never thought about this mulberry shade for myself; my eyes definitely but I guess I never thought I could pull it off as a lip color. I’ve been eyeing it in magazine editorials and on the runways but figured it was too high fashion for real life…

Until I had this a-ha moment…



TREND HUNTING: We’ve always loved hardware detail on clothing, but what do we think about showing your pretty pins on purpose? It’s kind of cool we think. Would you be excited to see this become a trend?

I cannot tell you how much I love Fall makeup. This is the time to make a fashion statement, setting your style tone for the year… may it be back at school, in your careers or amongst your circle of friends. And how you put your face together is a key element in fashion. So let’s break down this amazing Fall look:

EYES — Go metallic. Pick one metallic color and sweep it over your lid, crease and bottom lash line. Simple and chic. Not two colors. Not with eyeliner over it. One single wash of color. Then load up your lashes with black mascara and for extra drama, rim your inner waterline with a black powder or kajal/kohl liner. Finish by filling in your brows with a shadow or liner in their same shade.

CHEEKS — Go bare or at the very most, add a hint of blush in a nude shade.

LIPS — Using tips from our Autumn Rust guide, find a burgundy, wine or brick shade in a matte or satin finish, depending on your undertones.
