One accessory trend we are happy to see is the addition of some really great neck pieces that double as accessories and an extension of your outfit. Let’s see what our favorite designers have in store for us:
With winter fast approaching and the colder breeze coming in this fall, we all need a staple cover for that extra warmth. Of course, it can’t just be any cover…it has to go with the rest of your wardrobe as well. Here are some cover-worthy items from our friends at NET-A-PORTER.
Dubbed by many as the ‘best’ holiday, halloween has always been something to look forward to not just for kids but for many adults as well. So, for some chic halloween nail art, I turned to my favorite fashion website, R29 to help me with some kick ass halloween nail art.
Eyeball Nails - The white spots will definitely stand out from the black back ground. You just need black polish, white polish, and a thin brush to create the look.
Many of us dream of wearing stuff from the runway but we all know it’s easier said than done. Thankfully, there’s OPI and R29 to make things easier by getting inspiration from the runway straight to your nails. Here are some of our favorites:
Any shade of gray this fall is acceptable but what’s hot this season is some gray with olive hints called gunmetal. Luckily, we have OPI’s Nein Nein Nein OK Fine to try on our nails. Feel sexy and powerful wearing this shade.
Chartreuse or lime yellow is a break from the dark colours of fall and obviously, it’s also R29′s favorite. Paving the way for this color is also my favorite designer, Diane Von Furstenberg. Try OPI’s Don’t Talk Bach To Me and get a bit of pop into your wardrobe.
No outfit can be complete with out having some sort of accessory. Accessories are go-to items that give an extra oomph to your wardrobe. So why not try some of these accessories and pair it with your outfit today? R29 gives us some must try new accessories this fall.
BODY HARNESS ACCESSORY - body harness perfectly complements any girl’s outfit and gives it that oh so subtle fetish wear look (some are courtesy of and perhaps inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey). I have to say though that this accessory can’t be pulled off just by anyone. Real confidence and guts are needed for this one.
ASOS Rose Gold Metal and Disc Detail Upper Body Harness
LAYERED PLATFORMS - Whether stacked or graphic heavy, layered platforms puts a new spin to wearing shoes. Careful though, too much print or hullabaloo in your pair can make it a costume accessory. Chunky heels and simple straps can do the trick says R29.
SUPER HERO BELTS - Wide belts put emphasis and cinches the waist area. The trendiest looking belts are metallic with some hints of hard ware. Don’t pair this accessory with the double bangles to avoid looking like you’re from the circus.
If you’ve ever complained of expensive manis and pedis, I hope you’ve seen Kelly Osbourne’s $250k manicure at the Emmy’s. Wondering about the steep price? It’s because the polish used were really made from black diamonds. The nail polish brand Azature manufactured one bottle and allowed Kelly to wear these at the awards show.
Sources say, the really pricey nail polish bottle had to be kept safe at her hotel room. NO, She is not sorry about wearing the insanely expensive polish because she was just chosen to wear it. She didn’t actually pay for it. So for those who have been offended, well, I think that it was a once in a lifetime opportunity that she just had to take. After all, a girl’s gotta have her manis done (whether it’s expensive or not).
So for those of us who can’t really afford the manicure Kelly just had, there’s a loooong wait list for the uber expensive bottle but a $25 version of it will eventually come out in the market.
$25 for a bottle of nail polish can still be too pricey for most women. You can just get the Sally Hansen at a fraction of the cost of an Azature bottle. Similarly, Butter London has Gobsmacked, also a great alternative.
Changing up how you look can sometimes be liberating and you can choose to change your clothes or make-up but so far, we’ve seen that just by changing your hair alone can do a lot wonders for your image. Take it from celebrities who have proven time and again that a ‘do’ can make or break you in hollywood. So, here are the best celebs who’ve mastered the art of changing the hairdo.
Yes, I know she has the vocal prowess and abilities (and some might say she has it all) but I think you and I know that when it comes to her mane, we also salute her. Beyonce’s ever changing looks from big hair to sleek ‘dos keeps things interesting for her.
This girl is not just famous for her exceptional performances, her do is as important to her fans as her songs. I just have to commend this girl for braving different (sometimes radical) hairstyles and yes, hair colors!
She has one of the most captivating faces in hollywood and this was even brought to our attention when she starred in the hit movie, V for Vendetta where we saw her don a bald look. I personally think she (along with Demi Moore) one of the few gifted ones that can pull off such a look.
Well, I think that she’s been able to capture our hairdo imaginations with the different styles she’s worn for Sex and the City but really, SJP is not afraid to touch her hair and put a new twist to it every now and then.
I know it’s your crowning glory so you’re protective of it but your hair can do so much for your look. If you feel hesitant about changing it up, talk things over with your hairdresser. You can make the change in phases or steps until you feel ready to take a big hairdo leap.
