BeautyHow to Wear It: The Hair Scarf Trend

We are pleased to welcome the latest trend in accessories – the hair scarf!  This is an effortless way to elevate the simplest hairstyle.  Thanks to this new trend, your low bun, classic pony or half up / half down hairstyle will look even prettier and have an eye-catching look.  It is the perfect addition to complete any look from your desk to date night.  Below, we have styled three looks to get you inspired!

Voluminous Pony:

Your basic pony just got an upgrade! Fold a scarf (a bandanna or any lightweight scarf will work) until it is about two inches wide and the edges look neat. Loop it under your pony and tie a basic knot on top of the hair elastic. Do this once more to get a square knot on top of your ponytail. Adjust the ends of your scarf and fluff your ponytail with some light finger teasing to get an undone but totally chic finished look!

Low Messy Bun:

Sometimes you just need to toss your hair in a messy bun and go – but adding a hair scarf is a two second trick to take your easiest hairstyle into a totally chic look (bonus points: it hides second…or third or fourth…day hair). Make a casual, low bun at the nape of your neck, pulling out some baby hairs and shorter pieces along your hairline to frame your face. Fold a bandanna or scarf along the diagonal until it is about two inches wide. Putting the folded side toward your hair (so the top lies smooth against your head), put the scarf along your crown and over the tops of your ears to make a headband. Tie underneath your bun with a simple knot and secure with bobby pins if needed.

Half Up / Half Down:

For a boho-chic style that looks like it took a lot of effort, this half up / half down style is our go-to for sprucing up wavy curls. Brush back a small section of hair from the crown of your head to create a loose, looped pony. Be sure to leave out shorter layers to frame your face and keep some longer pieces out over your ears to keep the look flow-y. Using a long, skinny scarf, create a headband on the top of your head, tucking it under the hair in the ponytail, as well as some of the longer pieces over your ears to cover the rest of the scarf. Tie into a knot under your ponytail or bun and let the ends blend with the half down portion of your hair. Secure with bobby pins if needed.

FashionWhat to Wear: Thanksgiving!

‘Tis the season! The winter holidays are officially starting this week, and we couldn’t be more ready for it. A day celebrating family, friends, and food…count us in! Typically Thanksgiving is known for being cozy, casual, and family oriented, but that’s no excuse to not have a memorable holiday ensemble. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite Thanksgiving outfits as inspiration for your Thursday ‘fit, with comfort being a priority!

fam

Many of us will be spending Thanksgiving with our families, which means we get to keep it cozy and simple! We love the classic sweater and denim look, and it’s perfect for a day with the fam. A cute baggy sweater perfectly aligns with our Turkey Day diet (hello food coma!), and prefer black denim for the occasion to create an outfit that’s holiday worthy.

friendsgiving

What’s a surefire way to have a fun-filled Thanksgiving? Friendsgiving! There’s nothing like spending the day with your chosen fam, and it’s an ideal time to break out your favorite sweater dress. Sweater dresses are ideal combo of comfy and chic, sans waistband! If it’s chilly, we love pairing sweater dresses with over the knee boots (flat or heeled) for the ultimate statement, or pair your dress with your go-to mid-calf booties for an easy chic look.

meetheparents

Meeting your significant other’s parents is an exciting, yet nerve racking time. If you haven’t had the chance to meet them, this may be the day you should dress to impress! Not knowing how fancy your significant other’s Thanksgiving soiree might be, we recommend wearing your favorite modest fall dress or skirt. To keep your outfit holiday worthy, include fall hues and long sleeves in your look. With comfort still trumping all rules this holiday, pair your skirt with a cozy sweater, or layer your fall frock with a cardigan. And of course–both of these outfits would look flawless with your favorite mules or go-to booties.

FashionMVP Trend of the Week: Plaid

plaidCall it check, tartan, or just plain plaid, but this forever trend is one that never dies. The Fall 2017  runways were full of the traditional print in every incarnation from pantsuits to pleated skirts And while it can sometimes conjure up images of school uniforms or lumberjacks, plaid can indeed look super stylish and, dare we say, sexy. It’s all in the styling, of course.

To keep your look feeling up to date, mix in fabrics like denim and leather, and make sure to add some edge with accessories like ankle boots or the current must-have hat shape, the baker boy cap. Plaid plays well with leopard prints and florals, too, so don’t be afraid to go the eclectic route. Or channel your inner It Brit chick with a cat-eye and a sleek ankle boot. Whatever way you choose to rock it, you’ll look, well, bloody brilliant.
