Fall Fashion

Fall Fashion

This is one of my favorite looks lately!  It is sometimes difficult to come up with a fool proof outfit to wear in this weather- some days are still warm and some days are cooling off.  We’re definitely not into jacket territory yet, but we get chilly in just a tshirt.  We still want to wear our summer sandals, but those awesome leather boots are calling our name.  What to do?!

Start with some dark skinny jeans and a plain t shirt.  I love plain tops because they are cheap, and super easy to accessorize!  I love the way this black top looks with a patterned scarf.  Next, pair with an open toe, closed toe, sandal, or whatever footwear you feel like.  Follow with a neutral eye like you can achieve with the Urban Decay Naked Palette, and a bright lip.  My most recent favorite for lips is Clinique’s “red, red, red.”  It is a brighter shade but is blue toned (read- makes your teeth look whiter) and is mega flattering.  And totally can work for fall, winter, spring, summer….any time of year.

A few fun fashion tips:

– Jessica and I both love skinny jeans and jeggings.  Why?  You can cuff them in the summer to make capris, and in the winter you can wear them normally with a boot.  They are so versatile and also quite flattering.  It is a shame many women don’t think they can pull them off- weight should not be an issue when it comes to fashion.  If you are afraid of the dreaded muffin top, simply wear a looser style shirt on top that doesn’t cling in the wrong places!

– We also love accessories!  I am always on the lookout for fun, unique jewelry and funky patterned scarfs.  ALWAYS!  Why?  I can really dress up a plain $5 tshirt with a really unique necklace or a really cool scarf.  Don’t limit where you buy things either.  I have found some really great finds at expensive boutiques, and at the grocery store and get compliments on things from both places. 

– Don’t think you can’t pull off a red lip.  You totally can!  Go to the mall or your local Sephora and test out a bunch of different shades to see which one really fits your personality.  I have many different shades of red for different moods and outfits, from deep wines to brights to sheers. Deeper wine and reddish brown shades are hot for fall.

– Be thrifty and buy an all neutral palette.  Neutral does not equal boring.  We both have some version of the NAKED palette, and for about $50 you can get 12 shades.  There are plenty of shades for smoky looks and plenty for easy neutral day time looks.  It is a great thing to have on hand!

-Dirty pastel nail polish is in. This is a muted pastel polish that looks like its been mixed with in little dirt.

What are you wearing as we transition to fall?  We’d love to hear some of your fashion tips!

Yours in Beauty,
Justina & Jessica
