5 Fall Trends to Wear NowBlog ▸ Beauty Tips, Fashion Trends | August 21, 2014
Summer is winding down, but it is still too warm to break out the sweaters, boots, and dramatic make-up looks. Here are some great ways you can add fall’s beauty, fashion, and hair trends to your breezy, warm-weather styles.
1. Matte Lipstick
Every major makeup line will have a matte lipstick line this fall, but you don’t have to wait until the leaves fall to be a bold-lipped beauty. Wear a pink or peach matte lip with fresh skin and lots of lashes for a fashion forward look that won’t melt off during the dog days of summer.
Tip: For a more dramatic look, add some gold powder to the center of the lips for some extra glow.
2. Mod Hair
Get ready, because the bump is back! Straight hair with lots of volume was all over the runways for Fall 2014. While the weather may still be a bit too humid to channel your inner Jackie O, you can still make a ponytail look chic by adding a bit of volume to your crown.
Tip: Take this look to the limit with the addition of a gold-chain headband.
3. A-Line Dress
According to Hollywood stylist Rachel Zoe, short, A-line dresses will be a staple this fall. This ultra-flattering fashion works with any body type and can be worn with sandals in the summer or tights and a cardigan in the colder months.
Tip: This fall is all about fun prints. Because the cut of this dress works on everyone, you can be bold!
4. Fabulous Flat Shoes
While chunky heels and bedazzled pumps will be important for Fall 2014, flats are going to be a fashion staple. Pair the next seasons “it” shoe with boyfriend jeans, or an a-line dress, you will look adorably retro while giving your feet a rest.
Tip: Metallics are in! Silver flats are surprisingly versatile!
5. Gunmetal Nails
Gray metallic nails replace from the creamy pastels and electric neon nail polish of spring and summer. If you are not ready to go quite that dark, a creamy gray matte manicure is chic and fun.
Tip: Gray nail polish is the perfect backdrop for nail art. Try a delicate white lace design for the perfect transition to fall.
Beauty and fashion for Fall 2014 is about surprising texture. Mattes and metallics will dominate makeup. Lady like dresses will be made of athletic fabrics or lush knits, and the hottest hair looks will mix straight, teased, and curled pieces. Have fun with fall, and let your individuality be your guide!
