fall

Brown or Berry?

One simple question to answer this season: Brown or Berry?

Although i’m not a big fan of brown when it comes to clothing, this fall i’m crushing over this colour in all lipstick shades (Matte terracotta, creamy coffee, deep brown, burnt brown…) giving us a throwback to the 90s. It’s suitable for every skin color & flattering for all lips shapes!

As for the berry shade, we’ve already seen it on different catwalks but this season it would be exciting to try the darker shades of it like plum and purple. Those shades will guarantee a dark romantic touch to every winter look.

Now tell me which of the innovative shades will upgrade your winter makeup, brown or berry?

Potter’s clay: My pick for autumn

Temperature might be dropping down but the Potter’s Clay pantone is here to warm things up!

The color of falling leaves will add refinement to your outfit with its earthy tone and hint of orange & ochre.

Whether layered with other neutrals, color blocked or worn from head to toe, this pantone color is one of my top picks for this season on all fabrics & it’s the perfect substitute for the classic brown.

P.S: I rarely wear brown; I basically hate it…unless it’s about makeup, than you have to wait for upcoming posts 😉

Bag trends to shop this winter

bags

Shopping for a bag might be the easiest thing to do, yet the trickiest. As you have to ask yourself some fundamental questions before heading to the stores.

Question 1: How much am i willing to pay?

Question 2: When will i wear it?

Question 3: What size should i go for?

Question 4: What style fits me more?

Question 5: What’s trending this season?

Hopefully this post will help with the 5th question, as the four others vary according to your personal needs. So here are my top 5 bag trends to shop this fall/winter!

FUR: I can say that this winter fur is the warmest trend to shop & nothing screams winter chic more than holding a fur bag.

SNAKESKIN PATCHWORK: Reptile skin bags are a must have addition for a chic winter wardrobe. Start looking for colored & combined textures for a bag that turn heads!

Python patchwork

FRINGES: The seventies wave is everywhere this season & so are fringes!Fringes

BOX BAGS: After the circular bags last season, this season box bags invaded the runways in all kind of material & sizes!

Shiny fall trends

While everyone’s eyes is on Paris fashion week for SS16 let’s keep focused on this season, the season of the bling! Because this fall is all about big jewelry that turns eyes! It is not just about statement necklaces, but about big earrings, chunky bracelets,  beautiful hair clips & even a full pierced face like seen at Givenchy.

I have to admit that I’m very excited about the brooch comeback. This season dare to style your brooches as they can be used as an embellishment to your jackets, knits, scarfs & even hats adding a sophisticated flare to your warm fall looks. Without forgetting that this trend can be pocket friendly, as brooches can be found in so many shops & the best ones might even be found in your grandma’s drawer!

Touch of autumn

It seems that this autumn the weather is just moody. We are having days with heavy rain, and then days with warm sunshine! The positive side of this is that we can mix between our winter and summer wardrobe and come up with new outfits by adding small details.

In this shoot I created denim on denim look by pairing washed out denim to white shorts and a denim blouse. The shorts and blouse have the same denim color; it looks like I’m a wearing a denim jumpsuit! I added a warm touch of color with a slim belt and a fur bag. To finish up the look a statement necklace and white pumps!

My tip for wearing shorts and stay classy is to play on length and layers. The short are a little bit funky meanwhile the long sleeve blouse, buttoned up, keeps the outfit balanced and warm.

Blouse & Necklace: Stradivarius – Shorts: Mango – Pump: Aldo – Bag: Local Store.

Stay warm & chic!

Lebanon was blessed those couple of days with heavy rains forcing us to switch to a warmer wardrobe. I know we are all trying to postpone this switch as much as possible, but I also know that we are all ready to embrace new fall/winter trends.

One of the must-have trends this fall is the cape trend that you could spot on many runways (Blumarine, Dolce&Gabbana, Saint Laurent…) with versatile styles and materials.

This trend alters to different forms too like ponchos and blankets, hitting the streets widely with the personalized Burberry blanket worth 1,395$ seen on our favorite celebrities like Cara Delevingne & Sarah Jessica Parker.

Everyone can pull off the cape/poncho/blanket trend but be careful with the way you wear it. You don’t want to look like you’ve been recovering from illness!

Wear it with slim silhouette like skinny jeans, with shorter length items like shorts, or just belt it around the waist. And no matter what look you adopt make sure you can move easily and use your hands comfortably!

Finally this fall winter season don’t hesitate using your crazy over the top outwear to make a winter statement and stay warm at the same time!
