Fall has finally arrived, and you know that means one thing for us girls: transformation. Although we have it rough in life compared to men, we get to rebrand ourselves and start over every season, which is the best part of being a girl in my opinion! So, in honor of my favorite season I decided to put together a little collection of items I am loving. Although Emerald is technically the color of the year, my favorite color for Fall 2013 is definitely a deep red or wine color.
First on the list is a lipstick from MAC that I actually own, and it has become one of my favorites: Rebel. A deep berry/wine color is gorgeous on every skin tone, lasts for hours, and leaves a beautiful stain on your lips.
Another Fall staple is a deep red nail polish—no Fall look is complete without it! I love an opaque, creamy, and deep color for any season, but Fall especially. This Dior Nuit 1947 nail polish, which is part of their Fall 2013 collection, is a beautiful color that vamps up any plain old nail, adding sophistication and class.
A beautiful wine colored blush can be frightening, especially for you fair skinned beauties, but if applied softly and blended well, it can amp, or vamp up any night time makeup look. Whether it’s a night out on the town with your man or your girl friends, it will spice up your appearance. Marc Jacobs recently launched their beauty collection at Sephora and this gorgeous color is called Tantalizing. Does it tantalize you like it tantalizes me?
Velvet is one fabric I love when the temperature outside deliciously drops into those nearly freezing degrees; it keeps you warm and adds a unique flair to any simple black, or in this case, wine colored dress. Throw some velvet on a skater dress, and you have my heart. A skater dress flatters just about any body shape, while being fun and flirty, bringing out your playful feminine side. This particular dress is from Motelrocks.com, which is located in the UK (I knew I had a thing for “the London look”). However, retailers such as Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, and Asos carry similar products.
Tights are great for the Fall mostly because they remind me of Gossip Girl, which I miss so dearly—oh Chuck Bass! They also smooth out your legs and keep you warm in the crisp, cool Autumn months. Pair black tights with just about any dress and it will transform your look so you are Fall ready! The tights pictured are from Asos (I really must be British) and the heart-shaped patches on the knees really make my heart flutter— too cheesy? My love for elbow patches is hitting an all time high, but now that I have been exposed to knee patches it is safe to assume that I am on “patch” overload.
Lastly, there are the heeled ankle booties, which are great for women like me who cannot walk in actual heels. Black is great because they go with just about everything, while looking feminine, yet a little edgy. However, don’t be afraid of color because a wine colored ankle bootie would be just as stunning. The bootie pictured above is from boohoo.com, but Topshop and Nordstrom carry similar styles. If you are in an even edgier mood, I love Jeffrey Campbell’s Lita Spiked Shoes in Black on Black as well as the Damsel Spike.
I hope you enjoyed this Fall 2013 inspired board and were inspired in your own way. This new season is the perfect time to reinvent your look, and of course, vamp it up! I love to see how others are inspired by the season change so let me know what your favorite colors and looks are!
