Three fall looks

October 01, 2012

I know it's a huge cliché that fashion bloggers rave about their favourite season, fall, but my claim is more legitimate because 1) It's been my favourite forever. 2) I live on the East Coast, and there actually is a fall here, unlike season-less California (LA bloggers, you know yourselves! Haha). 
Upon the request of my friend J., who describes her taste as a mix of girly, romantic, and eccentric, I have created three day-time fall looks that are stylish yet rather easy to put together when, say, you're late for class or you've got to be somewhere soon (happens a lot to me!).

Earthy chic:
What I like about this look is that it's perfectly laid-back and comfortable but has this touch of French chic to it. I recommend pairing it with relatively simple make-up; something to even out your complexion, two coats of black mascara, and a vanilla floral fragrance, like DKNY Pure.

This outfit is perfect for coffee and pastries with girlfriends, or perhaps a date with your significant other. There is something cute and demure to it. Keep your make-up simple; a little blush, shimmery rose eyeshadow and lipgloss, and you're good to go. I suggest pairing it with Nina by Nina Ricci.

Aaaah, Power. This is by far my favourite look, and it is the most daring one to try. I love it because it has something about it that says "diva"/"fashion editor". Also, it has RED which we have established is my favourite colour. It makes power seem very feminine and sexy. If you're more daring, you can swap the simple black leggings for leather ones, and the mary-janes for stilettos (which is, obviously, what I'll do), for a look that KILLS. I suggest keeping the make-up rather simple: perfect complexion, lots of black mascara, lips stained with a true red (like this one from L'Oréal). As for perfume, what translates womanhood and power better than Yves Saint Laurent's OPIUM?
