College Girl Series: Fall 2011 Essentials


Fall 2011 Essentials
FALL ESSENTIALS
Every college student should have these top 8 essentials in their closet. These items are whats in this season and it is a staple.
The items you should have is:
1. Denim Jacket- Denis is a popular trend this year whether your wearing a cropped denim jacket, a denim vest or a regular denim jacket, you should have at least one of these in your wardrobe. You can easily dress up a plain simple dress, or throw on a denim vest with a bodycon skirt and a nice v-neck shirt.
2. Blazers- Blazers are also in this Fall as well. Everyone should have at least 1 or two blazers (black, navy, tan or blue), or if you like to add a pop of color to a plain outfit, you can easily throw on a bright colored blazer (hot pink, blue, yellow, orange, green, purple). Blazers come in a variety of colors and patterns. The best place to find blazers is at Forever 21, H&M, and Charlotte Russe, or if you like to save money you can easily find tons of blazers at your local thrift store. Blazers can also dress up any plain outfit.
3. V-Necks- V-Necks are an essential because you can either dress it up or down. You can wear a v-neck with just about any type of bottoms, and they come in a variety of colors. You can find great deals on V-Necks at Forever 21, H&M and Wet Seal.
4. Leggings: Leggings are great for the fall because they come in a variety of colors and patterns as well. A big trend this year are leopard print leggings, and high waisted leggings. The key to wearing leggings is to wear a long top that will cover your buttocks (LOL), it’s definitely not cute walking around with leggings and a short shirt.
5. Colored Jeans or Jeggings: Colored jeans or jeggings are definitely in this summer for the fall. The colors I recommend that are Fall appropriate are dark greens, royal blues, red, orange, and corals. When wearing colored jeans, it is best to balance out the color with a nude shoe or blazer.
6. Peacoat- Peacoats are definitely in this Fall, you can find different styles of peacoats like military inspired. Peacoats also come in a variety of colors and patterns. the essential colors that every college girl should have in their wardrobe are navy blue, black, gray, charcoal, and tan. Those colors will go with just about anything.
7. Combat Boots- Combat Boots have been really big this year, and they are still in for Fall and Winter of 2011. Every girl should have a pair of black, gray, brown and tan colored combat boots in their wardrobe. You can wear combat boots with just about any outfit weather its with leggings, jeans, skirts, shorts, or a dress. Combat boots brings a vibe of masculinity to any girly or dressy outfit, or you can wear the boots to aim for the edgy rock star look. They come in many lengths also. Look for them at Forever 21, H&M, Charlotte Russe, and Delias.
8. Oxfords- Oxfords come in many styles, whether its the original style, high tops (booties), floral print, leopard print or solid colored; you can easily wear these shoes with just about any outfit.

How to Wear Patterned Tights Like the Celebrities


Who doesn’t like patterned tights? Although you may not be sure how to wear them or what to wear them with, people still love them. Here are a few tips on how to wear these tights.

If you’re wearing bold patterned tights like Kelis or Nicki, keep everything else understated so there isn’t a big competition for attention going on in your outfit. Kelis’ leopard tights would look so much better with a simple black sheath dress and black pumps or booties.

Even if you want to get funky and pair say leopard print tights with leopard print shoes, keep everything else simple. Other patterned tights look great with solid bright colors.

Want to mix prints safely? Follow these tips:

Mixing prints may seem difficult, but can be pulled off using these tips:
* Stay within the same color family (i.e. green plaid with green polka dots) or go with contrasting colors. Learn more about how to use the color wheel to combine colors in The Color Wheel: How to Combine Colors in your Wardrobe
* Go opposite in scale (i.e. mix smaller prints with larger ones).
* Pull it all together with a solid color (either a jacket, shoes, or purse, etc.)

Spring Summer Trend: Color Blocking



Color blocking is one of the biggest trends happening this season, although it’s been around for many years, it died down and now its back in fashion.

If you love color and have many bright hues in your wardrobe, color-blocking is a way of getting more bang for your buck by combining colors you may not immediately pair together. Though the shades aren’t what you would think of pairing together first, there is a rhyme and reason toward choosing them. First, grab a color wheel and then follow these steps:

1. Colors directly next to each other (i.e. yellow and yellow-orange; yellow and yellow-green; violet and blue-violet, etc.)
2. Colors that form right (90 degree) angles with each other (i.e. yellow and red-orange; blue and violet-red; green and orange, etc.)
3. Colors directly across from each other (i.e. yellow and violet; blue and orange; red and green, etc.)
4. Colors that form a T (i.e. blue, orange, and violet-red; yellow, violet, and red-orange; yellow, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)
5. Colors that form an X (i.e. blue, orange, violet-red, and yellow, violet, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)

Since brown is a neutral, it will go with virtually any color on the color wheel. I love to pair a chocolate brown with cobalt blue or fuchsia or bright red—such a fun and bold combo. Of course white, black, and the hues of blue found in denim are also neutrals that go with just about anything.

Colors that are a part of a “color family” also apply. So for instance, you can substitute pink with red and still be able to pull off the combos based on the color wheel (i.e. we see that blue and red form a right angle with each other–then in Elise Neal’s outfit she wore fuchsia and cobalt blue).

You can also use the color wheel when coming up with color combinations for your makeup. It can help you decide which makeup color to wear so that you don’t match your eyeshadow with your outfit. Check out how Rihanna paired gorgeous purple eyeshadow with her red frock:
