FashionHow to Wear It: Layering

Just in case you haven’t noticed, fall is HERE! We love the fall season for all the obvious reasons (our Spiked Pumpkin Spice Latte being one of them), but it’s also a great excuse to change up your wardrobe.

One of our favorite trends that has taken over the past year is layering. We love how you can layer a simple (or statement!) top under your otherwise summer friendly pieces to make it a bit more suited for chillier months. See how we layer to achieve the effortlessly chic vibe that you’ve been seeing everywhere!

BASICS:

Basics

You can’t go wrong with the classics! We love pairing simple, neutral tees or bodysuits under dresses to give you a bit of warmth. When layering under something patterned or textured, we recommend layering with a basic tee to keep the focus on your statement piece. Keri flawlessly layered a basic black tee under her plaid dress with matching black accessories, showing us a perfect example of how to make your spaghetti strap dress office and autumn friendly!

LACE & MESH:

Basics

Layering with mesh or lace tops is one of our favorite ways to elevate any outfit. We love how Venessa wore her long sleeve lace top under her pinafore dress, showing us an outfit we will definitely be recreating. Lace and mesh tops are perfect for those warmer fall days since they give you the layered look you love, while being lightweight and breathable.

STATEMENT SLEEVES: 

Basics

Want to make a statement?! Layering with statement sleeves is the ideal way to escalate your outfit from basic to fabulous! We love statement sleeves with classic colors and shapes to let your fluttery sleeves steal the show. Take inspo from Kemper for all the holiday parties on your agenda by utilizing your tried-and-true LBD, paired with a statement top to freshen things up!

Show us how you layer–we’d love to see! Share your best layered looks by using #lovelulus on Instagram.

FashionLast Minute Halloween Costumes

Don’t skip the Halloween parties this year because you haven’t had a chance to grab a costume! Look absolutely chic with these last minute go-to Halloween costume ideas. Here’s three of our favorite easy to create looks, with pieces you’re bound to wear again!

Halloween Costumes: Parisian Chic

We all know French women have that certain je ne sais quoi, and if you want the perfect Parisian look– it’s easier to create than you think! Pair a black and white striped top with an ultra-chic black pencil skirt and your fave ankle strap heels. Don’t forget to add a pop of color with a red handbag and red lips. Top it off with an ever-trendy black hat, and red bandana. Even if you can only find a few of these items, you can still pull off the Parisian Chic look!

Halloween Costumes: Pop The Bubbly

No need to wait ’til happy hour for drinks! Easily one of our favorite go-to costumes this year is a celebratory pop the bubbly. Simple and sophisticated, this costume will use pieces you may already have in your wardrobe. Go for an entirely gold ensemble, pairing a darling gold sequin dress with chic heels and a dainty clutch to keep the look classy. Don’t forget the highlighter at home, as this is the perfect excuse for an absolutely glowy make up look. To complete the outfit, add white sphere earrings to give the perfect illusion of bubbles!

Halloween Costumes: Shooting Star

Feeling out of this world? Take advantage of this year’s hottest trend–stars! It’s your perfect chance to put together all of your favorite star pieces and accessories to feel like a Shooting Star. This black and silver star sequin romper is the perfect piece to make a statement. Pair it with our favorite starry socks, and some metallic heels to have a head-to-toe celestial look. Top your costume off with silver star earring and silver nail polish to tie together your intergalactic ensemble, and to feel like a Shooting Star!

FashionModel Moment: Camila Costa

It is time for another model moment!  Last month, we traveled down to the desert to shoot a campaign with one of our fave babes, Camila Costa! This shoot was all about fall, rich textures, glam dresses and cozy separates. We are so in love with velvets, lace, and amazing boots this season and Camila was the perfect muse for our fall collection! Not to mention, she is our new best friend and so fun to work with! Wanna learn more about this cutie? Read on for an exclusive #bts interview!

What is something that most people don’t know about you?
Most people don’t know that I don’t eat meat. They think that since I am Brazilian I love meat. I used to love it but now I am vegan because I think eating meat is bad for the environment.

Favorite place you have shot a campaign?
The Bahamas! Omg, it was amazing, I love it! It was the first time I drove a vehicle, which was actually a golf cart! It was a beautiful trip.

What is your biggest accomplishment?
I think it is being a mom and figuring it out on my own. There is no manual on being a parent. It is amazing to see her growing and have the mentality on what is right and wrong.

What is your favorite thing to do with your daughter?
Ah! I love to play Barbie dolls with her! Everything that I do with her is fun! Even just going to grab a sandwich with her, I know it is going to be amazing because I love to talk to her. And in these moments when she is quiet and not doing anything is a moment when I feel more present and I really enjoy it.

What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is mango, but I love mango from the tree in Brazil. I like to go and pick it myself. I am not a fan of the mangos here, they are not the same.

So, you just got married! What was the most unforgettable thing about that day?
It was amazing to have all of my friends and family there on that day. We did not have a traditional ceremony. Instead we had everyone bring an item that represented “love” to them, that they would want us to have in our relationship. It was such a fun surprise to see what everyone brought.

What was some of the objects that people brought?
Everything from a disco ball, to represent the party that they wanted us to have each day, to a mural!

How did you and your husband meet?
We met at a party, through mutual friends. It is so awesome because ever since I first met him, I have felt like I always knew him.

What is your favorite date night?
Everything is fun with him! We love to go to the arcade and play games and be silly!

What is your can’t live without beauty product?
Coconut oil! I love coconut oil everywhere, hair and skin. It is amazing.

Describe your teenage style?
Kind of ghetto! Haha! I loved thin eyebrows, really wide legged and low-rise pants.

What are your favorite trends for fall?
I love shiny and metallic stuff!
