DRESSING YOUR TURKEY AND YOURSELF FOR THANKSGIVING
There are two crucial components no Thanksgiving dinner can do without; a perfectly appointed turkey and you; the hostess with the mostess. But juggling all of the shopping, decorating, cooking and entertaining can leave you feeling frazzled rather then thankful, especially after having to referee uncle Bob and aunt Jenny who feel they need to boldly share their political views with everyone in attendance. Never fear, with a few simple tips we can help you pull this event off with grace and panache. You will be the master of all the madness.

FIRST THINGS FIRST: THE TURKEY

FoodAndWine

Before we can get our turkey dressed we have to get it cooked properly which can be stressful even if you are not a first time turkey preparer. Let’s take the stress out of this:
Tip 1 – Get your turkey the Monday before Thanksgiving, don’t wait, this will assure it has plenty of time to thaw properly if frozen.
Tip 2 – Once thawed or if using a fresh turkey let it set in the refrigerator uncovered for a couple of days before cooking. It sounds scary I know, but this will cause the juices to get pulled into the meat of the bird and dry the skin so it will become a beautiful picturesque brown just like all of those photos you see. Yes, it will look shriveled by the second day, DO NOT WORRY, after cooking it will look and taste fabulous.
Tip 3 – There must be at least 25 different ways to prepare a turkey, here are a couple of our favorites:
DRY-BRINED TURKEY
PERFECT ROAST TURKEY

Tip 4- We want the turkey as our centerpiece to look beautiful but just use what you already have; sprinkle around some hazelnuts, cranberries, clementine’s, a little greenery, even kale works, and you will have a work of art with very little expense and effort.

ADDRESSING THE DRESSING

I don’t know about you but for years I have wondered why some people call stuffing dressing. Thanks to this blog I actually took the time to do a little research and discovered that when your bread mixture actually is stuffed inside the turkey if is officially defined as stuffing, when it is prepared as a side dish separate from the turkey it is called dressing because you are using it to dress your plate. There you go, I feel smarter already. We can let our guests worry about “dressing their plates”, as a hostess our only responsibility is making sure the turkey is well dressed; both on the table if we plan to feature it as a centerpiece and then with our prepared side dish. No stuffing, thank you very much, it keeps the bird from cooking correctly, brings the risk of food borne illness and comes out goopy, yuck!

FOOD FRIENDLY FASHION

As a hostess or even a guest we all want to look stylish and pulled together in front of our family and friends but when you are going to be spending 80% of your time in the kitchen and juggling people, plates and pandemonium you need clothing that you feel comfortable in, otherwise you will find yourself feeling awkward and irritable which isn’t good for anyone involved. Here are our favorite tips fro stylizing some comfortable basics from your own closet. Find many of these items and more in our #blackfridaydeals at poshatplay.com, save 70% sitewide on your entire purchase with code BFF at check-out.

MAKE A STATEMENT

sequined-skirt

A statement piece from your wardrobe is all that you need to take jeans, leggings or a simple monotone dress to a whole new level. What qualifies as a statement piece you ask? It is that item that hangs in your closet you just had to have but probably do not wear very often, example: fur vest, sequined anything, brightly colored jacket or shirt. This is one of those items that immediately draws attention to itself every time it is worn. Today is the day to give it a chance to “come out of the closet” and shine.

 

WHERE TO FIND:
Black Fur Vest
Button Down Denim Shirt
Black Leather Leggings
Black Jeans
Sequin Skirt

ELEVATE WITH ACCESSORIES

jewelry-tshirt

No statement piece, no matter, you can also add some flair to one of your closet basics with thoughtfully chosen accessories. We are talking scarves, jewelry, belts, and shoes. We are including shoes here because believe it or not the right shoe can set off an otherwise boring outfit and give it new life. These are statement accessories that scream “look at me” so it is important to pair them with a toned down look.

No heels for this girl, when I need to move and get things done the last thing I want is to feel unsteady on my feet. All of these flats are comfortable without giving up one ounce of style.

WHERE TO FIND:
Lace-up Ballet Flats
Silver Sequined Flats
Leopard Print Flats
Gold Lame Flats

The great thing about a belt or scarf is that they can be thrown on over last minute so you are free to cook comfort and then can easily adorn yourself moments before company walks through the door.

WHERE TO FIND:
Silk Scarves
Leather Belt
Jewelry
Sweater Dress

elegant-thanksgiving-table

Regardless of what your plans are for Thanksgiving Day just remember the bottom line is not perfection but gratitude for all of the imperfect people we are surrounded by who make our lives rich by making us laugh, causing us to cry and teaching us how to love the often unlovable part in all of us. HAPPY THANKSGIVING from Posh At Play!

Fall festivals are always a fun way to expose yourself to some down home, local flavor and an excellent excuse to indulge in those carbohydrate rich treats we do not allow ourselves anywhere else; can you say funnel cakes and deep fried oreo’s? When venturing into a haunted house, perusing a pumpkin patch, or opting for amusement park pandemonium one thing is for sure; comfort is key. You can’t go wrong in a chic pair of skinnies, a cozy sweater, and ankle boots to keep you warm, also this outfit makes it easy to outrun any ghosts or ghouls that may cross your path.

FALL INTO SIMPLE HEALTHY HABITS FOR BODY AND HOME

4116bb866d638b69f879e009173ae3d0

Just as spring is a time for rebirth, autumn is also considered a transitional season. The weather turns brisk, the leaves on the trees change from dull brown to a firestorm of color,  and darkness settles in a little earlier. For many, it is a favorite time of year, but for others, it can be a trigger to falling off the health and fitness wagon. After all, how can you be expected to ignore pumpkin spice lattes? The key is to set goals BEFORE the new year, not over a drink as the clock strikes midnight.
“Fall … is a great time to start a (health and) fitness program because you’re going to create good habits for the holiday season and the upcoming winter months,” says Justin Price, owner of Biomechanics a personal training and wellness facility in San Diego.
Not only is Fall a good time to plan a strategic exercise regime, but also to change your summer skin care, eating habits, and stress management. Take a look at our four most important “wellness” points you can focus on this Season to help keep you energized, healthy, and happy.

TASTY & TRIM

635910011704946130-2015957511_coffee

It’s so hard to resist those spicy pumpkin lattes or warm delicious hot cocoas. Well, you can still enjoy your favorite cold weather beverage. Our helpful tips when you are out:
(1) Use milk (3% milk fat) rather than the heftier half-and-half (18% milk fat)
(2) Opt for the “skinny” version, made with skim milk rather than whole
(3) Forgo the calorie rich whipped cream
(4) Order a small, rather than large

Or, make your own at home with our favorite low-cal pumpkin spice latte recipe:
You need:
1½ cups unsweetened cashew milk or other non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup
3 teaspoons regular vanilla
¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 tablespoons pureed pumpkin
1 pack Starbucks VIA instant coffee (or favorite brand)

Directions:
(1) Place cashew milk, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin a small saucepan and bring to a simmer
(2) Stir in instant coffee
(3) Transfer to a mug and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Enjoy!

CLEAN HEALTHY MEALS

USA - The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show - Backstage

While we all look forward to Halloween’s scrumptious candies and the holidays’ luscious turkey, ham, and pumpkin pie, there is a way you can still indulge yet stay trim throughout the entire Season. The key is to not deprive yourself so much that you overcompensate later. We like model Gigi Hadid’s motto: “Eat clean to stay fit, eat a burger to stay sane.”
On your regular days, start with a small healthy breakfast like whole grain oatmeal, fruit, eggs, or cereal to kick start your metabolism. Curb your mid-day slump with a healthy salad of greens and protein. Finish the day off with a light dinner of chicken or fish, and vegetables. Maintain this daily routine on normal days.

04ladies-master1050

When you are out on the town, no need to sacrifice your regime. You can still order your favorites, just order dressings on the side, limit heavy breads, opt for lean meats or salads, and stay hydrated with water. Spending a little extra time on what you eat throughout your normal routine, means you can indulge a little on the special days without “falling off the bandwagon.”

KEEPING SKIN CLEAN

00-concealers

As the warmth of summer’s sun fades and we go into the “hibernation” Season, sometimes our skin takes a backseat to the busy-ness of Fall’s activities. With the crisp cool air, skin can easily lose moisture so it is vital to change your daily skin care regime. Take a look at some of our favorite tips from top designers and dermatologists.

AT HOME EYE REMEDIES

natural-eyes-care-home-remedies-in-winter-600x320-1

The simplest way to look energetic throughout this busy time of year is to keep your peeps bright and alert. While a comforting facial is always beneficial, we don’t always have the time in our busy schedules. The easiest way to stay fresh is with a quick at-home eye treatment right before you go to bed, or just when you wake up. In addition to reducing salt, hydrating with water, and preventing allergens, these are our favorite “quick tips:”

(1)  CUCUMBERS (containing antioxidants and flavonoids): Place a cool slice on each eye and take a rest for 30 minutes. Afterward you’ll feel nice and refreshed.
(2) RAW POTATO SLICES: They stay cool longer and contain an astringent that helps remove the water from under the eyes. Lay over the eyes and reap the benefits.
(3) WITCH HAZEL: Chill witch hazel (a well-known astringent to reduce swelling and redness) and apply a bit to cotton pad; let sit on closed eyes for 5 minutes.
(4) COLD WATER: Refresh your face with a cool water wash first thing in the morning. If your eyes feel extra puffy, dip a washcloth in cold water, squeeze out excess and lay over eyes.

NEW SKIN CARE REGIME

beautysecretstolookfreshfacethroughouttheday

With the fluctuating weather, it is extra important to slough off dead cells and keep skin hydrated against the Season’s uneven temperatures. Make sure you lather up with an additional amount of non-comedogenic hydration. Instead of relying on chemical ridden products, why not make your own easy nourishing face and body scrub at home to use throughout the Fall months ahead:
DIRECTIONS:
In a small bowl mix: One tablespoon of brown sugar
A generous squeeze of honey
A teaspoon of olive oil
Mix until one paste. After removing any makeup, massage this concoction all over your face for a minute or so and then rinse with warm water. (Make a larger quantity for full body exfoliation).

SIMPLIFIED FALL MAKE-UP IDEAS

With the new Season comes new beauty trends. Even though the leaves turn darker and the nights come sooner, that doesn’t mean that make-up must follow. This year, counterbalance warmer colors with a fresh-faced, simple make-up care routine you’ll sure to appreciate, especially on those busy days.

BE CALM AND REJUVENATE

9bb181659b464d2a4eded04d6616f18e

During the hectic Season, take a little time to calm, cleanse, and rejuvenate. Our favorite way is through aromatherapy, the most natural way to release stress. The methods of use are what makes aromatherapy one of the most beautiful and indulgent of all the complementary therapies. From vaporizing, to massage, to bathing, to foot baths, there are so many ways to enjoy the captivating aromas of our pure essential oils.

best-essential-oil-diffuser-for-home-spa-office-innovative-and-stylish-aromatherapy-diffuser-waterless-auto-shut-off-oil-05

Our favorite way to relax is vaporisation, the most popular and versatile method of use in Aromatherapy. Once the particles are inhaled, the essential oil vapors may alter moods and balance emotions within seconds.

How to:
Fill your vaporiser with water to the level indicated. Add 6-9 drops in total of pure essential oils to the water and light the candle at the base of a Ceramic Vaporiser or switch on your Electric or Ultra Sonic Vaporiser.

Don’t stop with just your home. You can stay calm throughout the day in your car with lemon infused oils to reduce anxiety and stress or revive during the mid-afternoon  slump with coffee or cinnamon reviving scents.

And finally, end the day in peace with a indulgent warm bath. Bathing is the most beautiful and nurturing method of use in the practice of Aromatherapy. All the senses are engaged in this practice and the mind and body are totally relaxed as the pure essential oils enter the body.

How to:
Add 3 drops in total of chosen oils like Rose or Lavender to one teaspoon of Sweet Almond Massage Base Oil and disperse into bath water. Agitate the surface of the bath and then immerse body and relax for 10 minutes.

SIMPLE CELEBRATIONS CREATE LIFETIME MEMORIES

d6f72d76a10f96715f44594c43a6c50c

The year would not be complete without the celebrations that fill the Season, creating pockets of joy to last a lifetime. No need for extravagance; let nature take over and provide the perfect backdrop for your Fall party. Whether you are planning a Halloween masquerade, gearing up for Thanksgiving, or hosting a casual get-together, go simple this Season.

Fill a glass urn with pine cones and colorful leaves from the back yard or make a centerpiece with pumpkins from your local pumpkin patch. Enhance your house with cinnamon essential oils for a calm environment, and add a couple of plaid throw blankets over chairs. If the weather permits, end your party with an old fashioned marshmallow roasting and snuggle into your warm blankets for an entertaining evening of fun, food, and fellowship.

Added bonus, hosting your own gathering means you get to pull out your favorite party wear, and stay cozy and warm without having to step foot out of the door. Make it easy on yourself by having guests bring their favorite Fall goodies, and stir together a simple apple cider that young and old alike can enjoy.

Check out our favorite Fall party wear to try:
“Sparkling” Black Sequin Pullover Sweater

In this hectic time year, you can find ways to detox and decompress throughout your daily activities. Whether you opt for a “skinny” latte, relax with a natural scrub, overhaul your makeup routine, or calm with essential oils, enter the Season refreshed and revived rather than tired and stressed. Look for ways to get out and enjoy the fresh crisp air and the colorful changes in nature, inspiring you to try a few new things this Fall.

FUNCTIONAL FASHION: MAXIMIZING YOUR WARDROBE

ugg-spring-classics

We’d all like to make our lives a little easier and functional, spending less yet gaining a little more. Whether you’re an “on the go” girl who’s looking for transitional clothing to go from morning to evening, a traveler who needs to pack light, or you are just looking to simplify your wardrobe, take a look at our “Functional Fashion” picks that are a must have for this season.

ITEMS YOU CAN WEAR MORNING TO EVENING

6e7c87701eda63631f1460e7b4372bb6

We all have busy lives to lead and who wants to think about packing a bunch of clothes for the entire day? Why not grab a great versatile piece that can carry you from morning to evening? Go with a chic black jumpsuit, demure enough for the office, yet spiced up in the evening with a quick change of shoes and a cozy feather or sequined jacket.

c264fcc34311079f1fad690f57b3d704

0c8a8efcb52fca5871fbb54458b9df5a

Make like Kendall Jenner and have your jumpsuit work with you in your favorite comfy boat shoes or sneakers to keep you moving all day long. Your streamlined outfit might not come fashioned with enough pockets to hold all your necessities throughout all your activities.

THERE’S NO SHAME IN COMFY SHOES

1474384734775

Let your comfy shoes take you places this Season. While we love a good heel now and again, there’s no problem with taking a “lower” road this year. When you are on the go, the last thing you want is for your feet to give out mid-day. We are loving the “ballerina” flat for Fall. Comfy and chic, this shoe can pair easily with your favorite skinnies, leggings, or midi skirts throughout the Season.

bfa661e9adbb0a53b70a2f196d30a36d

AND bonus points: we love these “foldable” flats that can slip easily into your purse for a quick change throughout the day. Slip off your work heels and pull out your flats when you need to dash around town for a few errands or activities with the kids feeling fab and fashionable this Season.

4b065bc004c5d555a1be9d1808e7fb59

And you MUST include the ankle boot into your Autumn wardrobe. Warm, comfy, and stylish, the ankle boot is perfect to pair with everything from your favorite cropped jeans, to leggings, to even a maxi dress or skirt.

1ff813cc262440f6764c6163aed54004

OMG! Ugg boots are still in style for Fall? Of course they are. These are the perfect comfy functional shoe to fit into your daily routine. Able to pair with anything, these boots will keep you warm and stylish all Season long.

GO MODERN WITH REVERSIBLE CLOTHING

Jai Collection

Clothing is having an era of re-birth with the reversible fashion trend. The simplest way to switch your outfit in an instant is with “reversible clothing,”an item that can be turned inside out to completely change the look, feel, and color. We are crushing on Jia Collection’s branding style. Now you can have several different styling options with just one simple garment.

Jai Collection

With their wide variety of dresses, knits, and jackets, you can go from morning at work to lunch with the girls to date night in the evening wearing a completely different look, but the same item all day long.

helene-clarkson

We also like Helene Clarkson’s clean yet flattering line suitable to take you all over the world with just a few key pieces tucked into your carry-on. From business to pleasure, you’ll only have to pack a few items with her reversible skirts, blouses, and jackets.

reversible-travel-jacket_zpsiqb63nby

Don’t just stop at your daytime wardrobe. Why not try reversible active wear for your daily workout routine. No need to spend a fortune on sports attire- make your fitness fashion go double duty by investing in reversible sports bras, leggings, or jackets.

A comfy pair of leggings can work for you day or night, paired with a blazer for work, a Tee for daytime, your reversible crop for workouts, and a sequined top for nighttime activities.

Check out our favorite legging options here:
“Pascalla” Black Ultra Suede Leggings
“Jepson” Ponte Stretch Leggings
“Taylor” Blue Print Jersey Leggings

While you are on the go, consider clever travel pieces which include built in pockets that allow you to stay moving without the need of a purse or extra baggage. Check out the Clever Travel Companion fashion line suitable for workouts, travel, and active days. Not only are money belts, fanny packs, and vests the opposite of fashionable, but they can also make you more of a target for scams and crime, especially when traveling.

CONVERTIBLE CLOTHING 

elizabeth-and-james-convertible-trench-coat-parchment

You can also make one item work for you without it being “reversible.” Why not try the convertible clothing option using one item in a variety of different ways. We are loving Elizabeth and James’s convertible trench and the multitude of different ways you can fashion one item of clothing. Traveling has never been easier and your closet will thank you. Wear as trench for cooler days, take off the sleeves for a cute shirt dress effect, then take away the bottom for a chic cropped jacket.

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS THE ONESIE IS YOUR GO-TO

573a2fa8-2950-4fb0-8791-44b96fce3bc3-1_637x637

beyonce-x-college-jumpsuit-1

It’s an expression of the need to disconnect from the pre-scheduled daily routines. Inspired by the ones who come alive when the shift ends, living life on an inverted schedule, as kings and queens of the moment, the onesie is a huge trend this Season. From celebs like Beyonce to Kylie Jenner, everyone is getting on board the newest fully functional wardrobe necessity.

Check out the site “Onepiece” who’s setting the mark on this Season’s latest trend. Whether you have a long flight ahead of you, pair with a jacket for errands around town, or snuggle up for a cozy night in, the onesie is a fashion statement that can travel with you wherever you go.

57e90b91-bfe0-4142-8cc1-4513af4f34e6-1_637x637

On the go all day, flying through the airport, or just don’t have time to make it home, functional fashion can be your friend this Season. If you choose to slip a sweater over that maxi, switch out your handbag for a wristlet, pair your summer shorts with a cozy pair of tight, or take on the “onesie,” there are limitless ways to stay stylish while cozy this Season.

No matter how you decide to stay “functional,” remember:
Be YOU, Be Fashionable, and ALWAYS Be Feminine.

STYLE EDITORS TIPS & TRICKS FROM NY FALL FASHION WEEK 2016

milan-street-style-day-5-141

Whether you are attending the sartorial circus that is fashion month, are watching from a distance, or just want to look put together to welcome the new season, chances are you are in the market for some outfit inspiration. You’ve come to the right place. Take a few tips that we’ve chosen from NY fashion editors ensembles during fashion week this year and be inspired by the Fall runway looks.

(1) The Bright Bag Effect : Take The Yawn Out Of Neutrals

bright-yellow-bag

Whether clutch, crossbody, or satchel, it’s time to put a little color into your Fall wardrobe this Season. Instantly spruce up Fall’s neutral and darker colors with a pop of color. In a morning rush, fashion editors know that they can turn a simple outfit into an eye catching look simply by grabbing a brightly hued handbag.

From Hugo Boss to Alexander Wang to Rag & Bone, bright colors are all across the runway for Fall 2016. Jazz up a simple jeans and tee outfit with your brightly lit handbag accessory and shine in style this Season.

(2) Monochromatic Palette: One Color, Multiple Tones, Different Textures Equals A Slimming Polished Look

01d41819aad2d591a0733a819671a3bd

On the other side of the spectrum, fashion editors go with a monochromatic ensemble consisting of various shades and textures to create a slimming and polished effect. Look for items in the same color scheme for a slimming effect against the mixture of different materials from leather to lace to cotton to suede.

Spice up the romance in a “girly” pale pink monochromatic look this Fall. Mix and match Pantone’s 2016 Rose Quartz “color of the year” with a variety of patterns and textures.

Check out our favorite pink Fall wear options:
“Cameo” Pink Suede Shift Dress
“Marty” Kimono Jacket
“Emely” Pink Draped Satin Blouse

790b906e4eb973d71f89042012bbfd58

Camel, beige, and nude also gains attention this year. Mix things up by combining with a white or ivory color combo and intricate patterned accessories for an updated style.

Our favorite neutral monochromatic items for Fall:
“Lacy Sunday” Beige Textured Lace Blouse
“Cabana” Beaded Tie Dye Jersey Shirt
“Pascalla” Ultra Suede Ponte Leggings

A chic black and grey monochromatic ensemble creates a bit of drama for the Fall season with a nice mixture of textures from denim to leather to silk. Go from a grey tee by day to a silky sheer black by night.

(3)The Right Jacket Elevates Any Ensemble

blazers-and-jeans-oufits-2

Take your outfits from casual to edgy this Season. While the September weather fluctuates back and forth, fashion editors know a good coat or jacket is handy to have. When the weather is warmer, drape the coat over your shoulders for a cute “cape” look. As the breeze picks up, wear your coat normally to stay warm.

For the office, pair your coat over comfy pants and a classic pair of heels.

9d293f63ced05ec3b3f8a2aaf9e1a8fd

A basic “go to” tee and jeans outfit can go the next level by pairing with this Season’s chic blazer for a casual yet polished look. Will you go with a classic solid or try this Fall’s trending “text tees?”

Pair your jacket with our favorite classic skinny pant choices:
“Rogue Waves” Skinny Denim Jeans
“Bonded” Black Lace Skinny Pants
“Thompson” Mid Rise Skinny Jeans

motorcycle-jacket-with-dress

Don’t forget a moto jacket to keep you polished and styled with an edgy effect for Fall. Your leather jacket can be combined with not only your casual outfits by day but also your nighttime dresses by night.

(4) The Classic Button Down – Polished But Not Too Prim

buttondown-half

Whether tucked into classic skinny jeans, tied at the waist, or belted, fashion designers know you can’t go wrong with a traditional crisp button down top. Go with classic white or neutral or get into this Season’s style with a chic patterned print. Take a cue from fashion and celebrity icon Kim Kardashian with a half tucked in look. Why? It shows off your waist without looking too prim.

frat-tuck

Or go with the “frat tuck” for business in the front but a party in the back. Insert your button down at the waistline, pull slightly for a loose effect, and let the tail trail behind.

How to show off your favorite Fall heels and booties this Season? The”jean roll”
is your perfect solution while adding a polished look to the boyfriend jean. 

Whether you take your favorite straight leg jeans and roll the cuffs yourself or grab a pair of cropped boyfriends, be sure to include this style into your wardrobe. If you are feeling extra ambitious, you can combine your favorite heels with a pair of ankle socks for a super trendy fashion designer street style.

And don’t forget, you can also wear your rolled jeans style paired with heels and a blazer for a business meeting and trade out your blazer for a sheer lacy top for a fun night out on the town. Allow your co-workers to see your relaxed side while still looking professional.

And finally, our favorite accessory for Fall that can add a bit of pizzaz to any outfit from casual to dressy is the colorful printed scarf. Tie your favorite scarf in a knot around your neck paired with your favorite jacket, wide leg pants, or sheath dress.

Another Fall trend we’ve been seeing street style in NYC is using your favorite printed scarf as a chic bangle bracelet. Fold the scarf in sections, wrap, and tie in a knot for an instant jewelry piece.

You can also use your scarf as a chic belt option, cinched around your favorite boyfriend jeans or tied across the waistline of a dress for dressier occasions.

Bad hair day? Have no fear. Cover up a messy do or bed head with a colorful printed scarf headband. Not just reserved for “Boho” this Season, you can rock this look in style from work to play. Simply fold scarf in sections and tie around head, securing with a few bobby pins and you are good to go

And finally, has all this fashion talk made you hungry? Well grab yourself a cup of coffee and make a cute yet tasty “leopard” milk bread loaf. Here’s how to do it:

(1) Make one batch each of your favorite vanilla and chocolate dough.
(2) Refrigerate the cocoa dough, roll it into cylinders, and wrap it in vanilla dough
(3) Layer the rolls on top of each other in a bread tin and bake for the appropriate baking time.
*For added nutrition, we recommend eating this bread with Nutella

Invite your best girlfriends over with your scrumptious creation, or enjoy it all to yourself as you peruse Fall’s favorite fashion. And while you’re at it, include a couple of leopard print coffee or tea cups as well to set the mood.

FALL’S FAVORITE COLOR COMBOS

Fall colors

When we think of the changing of the Season, we all pull out our heavier fabrics and darker colors.This year, forgo the usual blacks, navys, and browns and add a little color into your Fall and Winter wardrobe. Fresh from the runways, we have the top color combinations trending across the globe for 2015. Some color combinations might seem “taboo,” but take a chance and try something new. You may surprise yourself in discovering a new and different YOU this Season. Take a look at our favorite styles below, and choose which color combos you like best.

red and orange color combos for Fall

RED AND ORANGE

Just in time for Halloween, now’s the time to bring out your favorite bright orange and coral colored clothing. Instead of playing it safe and pairing with the usual darker brown or black, be daring and combine with red, its partnering primary color. Get a similar look as featured above with Vince Camuto’s chic red cropped pants topped with Hale Bob’s orange short sleeve fringe shirt and red opened toed platform booties from Jessica Simpson. If the weather turns chilly, go with Hale Bob’s warm ultra suede coral leggings paired with the red silk button down blouseEileen Fisher’s burnt orange colored knit cardigan, and handmade dangle pumpkin earrings from DRae Designs. By combining orange and red, you’ll look smashing in Halloween’s iconic colors all Season long.

yellow jeans and pink scarf and hat for Fall

PINK AND YELLOW

All shades of pink, from blush to fuchsia, are trending for this Fall’s fashion collection. Straight off the runways of Christian Dior and Oscar de la Renta, stand out in style by pairing your favorite hue with a bright yellow. Start with our favorite trending blush pink long sleeve tee from Liberty Garden combined with Hale Bob’s bright yellow sateen skinny pants and Jimmy Choo powder pink leather kitten heels. Wow them with a pop of color in Hale Bob’s bright fuchsia pink Mayan tribal print tunic accessorized with bright pink suede ankle booties from YOOX.

pink dress with yellow accessories for Fall 2015

If yellow is not a flattering color on you, get in on this year’s trend by choosing your favorite shade of pink dress and simply accessorizing with a few key yellow pieces. We love Hale Bob’s blush pink ultra suede shift dress, suitable for any shape and figure. Complete your outfit with Pelle Moda’s NEW lemon colored strappy sandals and a Comme des Garcons canary yellow wallet inside your Marc Jacobs crossbody bag. Whichever tint you prefer and however you choose to style, be sure to include the pink and yellow color combo into your Fall fashion wardrobe this Season.

blue jacket and green skinny pants for Fall 2015

BLUE AND GREEN

Our third favorite color combination for Fall is blue and green. From designer Ulises Merida in Madrid to Hayley Elsaesser in Toronto, the runways were filled with the sea’s two favorite colors this Season. Spruce up your look at the office and shop Citizen’s of Humanity’s bright green Thompson skinny jeans or Hale Bob’s green Sateen skinny pants paired with Hale Bob’s blue washed silk jacket. Accessorize with Steve Madden’s blue leather pumps and Hayden-Hartnett’s all day green leather satchel for a perfectly trendy workday style. If you prefer more muted shades, substitute Citizen’s of Humanity’s olive green skinny jeans topped with Hale Bob’s long teal Boucle coat instead.

 green sweater with blue skinny pants

Reverse the color combo by selecting a green sweater and blue cropped pants. Perfect for lunch with the girls, a holiday party, or evening out, get a similar look as pictured above with Citizen’s of Humanity’s dark wash cropped blue jeans, Caslon’s green cashmere sweater, a Lauren Merkin leather clutch, and classic nude colored pumps from Stuart Weitzman. Carry Summer’s ocean waves and warm sea breezes with you into the cooler months of Fall by combining the colors of blue and green this Season.

SAND AND CREAM

Take a break from all the brights, and go with a softer look for Fall with a sand and cream color combo. You’ll look luscious at the office in a sand colored funnel neck sweater from Banjo and Matilda paired with Hale Bob’s ivory pencil skirt and cream colored pumps from Charles David. For a night on the town or holiday party, we like the sand and cream color mixture on Liberty Garden’s mixed media high low maxi dress combined with embellished peep toe pumps from Badgley Mischka and a Tory Burch mini crossbody bag.

sand sweater and ivory leggings

On your next trip to the pumpkin patch or coffee with the girls, slip into Hale Bob’s ivory ultra suede leggings paired with Topshop’s comfy oversized knitted tunic top or go with Equipment’s NEW sand colored cashmere sweater. Switch up the color combo and shop suede leggings from Elie Tahari or try sand leather leggings from Helmut Lang. Top your outfit with Liberty Garden’s NEW ivory knit lace jacket or go with the ultra suede long sleeve sweater combined with Rebecca Minkoff’s Bowery leather tote, Sam Edelman’s knee high boots, and snug beige cashmere scarf from Halogen. Casual or dressy, show your softer side this Fall with a sand and cream color outfit.

wine and mauve color combo for Fall

WINE AND MAUVE

Finally, our last favorite color combination for Fall 2015 is wine and mauve. In “Fall Style: Top Hair, Makeup, Color and Accessory Trends,” we mentioned that “Marsala” is one of the hottest colors trending this Season so what better way to try it out than blending with a lighter tone of the same color palette. Start with Hale Bob’s wine colored ultra suede leggings paired with Currrent/Elliot’s mauve muscle tee, Hale Bob’s black stretch bolero jacket, and suede knee high boots from Chinese Laundry. Or jump on one of this year’s trendiest patterns with Lucky Brand’s cozy NEW mauve and ivory plaid shirt. If leggings aren’t quite your style, substitute Hudson’s wine colored skinny jeans or go with Hale Bob’s ultra suede mini shift dress accessorized with a cute mauve crossbody bag from Kate Spade and matching mauve faux fur coat from Donna Salyer

MINIMALIST

Fall is all about expressing your unique style and individuality. Bend the rules this Season and go with the flow. No need for flashy accessories or overdone color. This Season look for understated jewelry, classic handbags, natural makeup, “undone” hair, and a simple wardrobe. Start your Fall beauty regime each day with Ren’s global protection day cream, formulated to protect skin against the environment’s harmful elements. Build a classic natural face with Bare Minerals’ tinted hydrating creamTartelette’s Amazonian Clay Matte eyeshadow, free of harmful chemicals, and finish with Bite Beauty’s all natural cinnamon plumping lip oil. Accessorize your Fall wardrobe with classic family vintage pieces, meaningful to you. Or help support creative artists around the world by shopping unique and handmade items on Etsy. We especially like the brass dagger necklace from Natura Metallum or the minimalist black leather handbag from LimorGalili. Wind down your day with natural face and body products from Edel Beauty Shop for your own little at home “spa” treatment. If simple, clean, classic beauty is your style, this is your Season to shine.

70’S FRINGE

As mentioned in our previous blogs, 70’s Boho fringe is here to stay. Look for fringe on jackets, handbags, ankle boots, blouses, skirts, and even jewelry. You can take the look further and update your “do” with a 70’s shag haircut and fringe bangs, one of this Season’s top trending hairstyles. Start your “Boho” look with Hale Bob’s orange short sleeve shirt with fringe, AC Collection’s flare jeans, Topshop’s floppy wool hat, and fringe leather handbag from Rebecca Minkoff. Accessorize your style with unique feather fringe earrings from designer Fiona Paxton or a metal fringe leather cuff from Cynthia Desser. Carry your “Boho” look into the evening hours with BCBGMAXAZARIA’s elegant gold fringe collar necklace paired with the Henna embossed fringe and leather  clutch. However you choose to style, be sure to include a little “Boho” fringe into your wardrobe collection this Fall.

Marsala hair color for Fall 2015 marsala nail color for Fall 2015 Marsala lipcolor

MARSALA

It’s wine with everything this Fall. Named the Pantone 2015 color of the year, “Marsala” is this Season’s most popular Autumn hue. From Monique Lhuillier to Rebecca Minkoff to Oscar de la Renta, the runways were buzzing with this color of choice for Fall fashion. Not only can you add a “Marsala” top or skirt to your wardrobe collection, but also look for the color in makeup and beauty trends. The next time you go for a mani/pedi, go with the look and ask for Butter London’s “Afters Patent Shine” nail lacquer. Or try a natural, “minimalist” makeup paired with a bright “Marsala” colored lipstick from Bobbi Brown. Looking for a hair color change? Ask your stylist about incorporating a hint of “Marsala” highlights to your natural color or take the plunge and go for an all over dye. Subtle or bold, be sure to include 2015’s color of the year to your beauty style.

JEWEL TONES

A second color trend for Fall 2015 is bright jewel tones like emerald green, sapphire blue, and ruby red. From Balmain to Altuzarra to Michael Kors, jewel tones glittered down the runways this Season. Now is the time to bring out your favorite blue sapphire ring or deep ruby earrings to sparkle in style. Accessorize your Fall wardrobe with a classic Dooney & Burke emerald green bucket handbag, Hale Bob’s purple printed silk scarf, or Calvin Klein’s red ankle boots for a splash of color at the office. Spruce up your Fall evening wear by treating yourself to a ruby bracelet from Kay Jewelers or create your own gemstone necklace with your choice of favorite jewels. Switch up your mani and go with Opi’s NEW Fall 2015 Venice Collection of jewel toned nail lacquers from crimson red to deep purple to blue sapphire. Don’t be afraid to live bold and bright this Fall and Winter Season.

blush pink makeup Fall 2015  blush pink overcoat Fall 2015

BLUSH PINK

A third favorite color trend for Fall 2015 is soft, blush pink. In contrast to bright “Marsala” and bold jewel tones, powder pink is the perfect counterbalance. Incorporate the look into your daily beauty routine with Too Faced’s “Boudoir Eyes” eyeshadow in soft pinks, a sweep of Nars‘ iconic glittery pink blush, and Dior’s Addict luscious pink lip polish. Brighten up the dreariest days ahead with Liberty Garden’s new powder pink pleated sweatshirt paired with Hale Bob’s ivory suede leggings and powder pink ballerina flats from Tod’s. If pink is a little too “girly” for your taste, try accessorizing with a Saint Laurent mini “Paris” clutch, delicate tourmaline stud earrings from Anthropologie, or a warm scarf from Missoni.

ANKLE BOOTIES

If you only add one new piece to your wardrobe collection this Fall, choose the ankle boot. From wedge, to fringe, to oxford, to fur trimmed, to vintage, the ankle bootie is your “go to” shoe of the Season. With just the right accessories and style, your ankle boots are versatile enough to take you from work to play to cocktail hour. Try Calvin Klein’s “Charlaine” wedge ankle boot for classic style and all day comfort. Go “Boho” with Steve Madden’s fringe suede “Countryy” pointy toe booties or vintage with Phillip Lim’s “Harleth” lace-up bootie. One of the newest styles to hit the runways this year is the Loafer bootie. We loved Opening Ceremony’s marbleized loafer booties on the runways from Fall Fashion Week 2015. Get a similar look with the “Zan” black leather loafer bootie from Opening Ceremony at Nordstrom or go with Tod’s slip on loafer boot with trending “Marsala” ombre color. There are a variety of patterns, colors, and shapes to choose from as you shop your favorite ankle boot style.

Fall hair, makeup and accessories

Which will you choose to try this Season? A new shag haircut or a sapphire  blue manicure? A blush pink clutch or ankle booties? “Marsala” lip color or fresh faced look? With Fall’s variety of hairstyle, make-up, and color choices, anything goes this year. Be bold. Try one of our top selections this Season and modify to suit your style.
