Attention all divas; the fall season has brought new ways to jazz up your closet! This year is all about color splash and prints. According to several fashion experts maroon is the new black. Adding the smallest dash of such a bold, beautiful color to your outfit is sure to spark interest. How you coordinate this color into your wardrobe makes all the difference.
For my soft-spoken divas, applying a rich burgundy polish to your nails is the best way to make a statement. Essie, a personal favorite brand of polish, has a sizzling shade of burgundy with the perfect amount of shine. The brand’s “Fish Net Stockings” color is perfect for those who still want to follow this trend without going overboard. The name of the name of the polish alone is enough to turn a few heads and can be found at Target for under $10; This is excellent for divas on a dime.Replace your normal black or brown liner with NYC’s maroon shade to shake things up even more without breaking the bank. I am sure we all have that one oversized sweater dear grandma bought us for Christmas sitting in our closet collecting dust. It is time to resurrect those sweaters ladies!
For my fearless fashionistas, take a walk on the wildside. Cheetah print is fierce. Pair burgundy tights with a cheetah printed flat to go along with that lovely sweater for instant comfort and style. Rue21 has a large selection of tights for only $7. Go a step further and pick a pair of printed tights which look incredible under a skirt or a pair of destroyed jeans. Complete the outfit with a slouchy, solid colored sweater or long sleeved shirt, paired with flats or combat boots—yes, combat boots. Admit it; they are awesome. Rue21 and Maurice’s both have incredible deals on all of the items listed above.
The brave at heart can step out with a bold maroon lip. L’Oreal’s Mauve Dream lip stain leaves your pout luscious with rich color. Topped with your favorite gloss for shine or a balm for a matte look, you are sure to be the “it” girl of the evening.
Dare to be different! Whether you are adding a subtle splash of maroon with a polish, or rocking it out with tights, following these simple tips is sure to gain yourself a spot among the bold and the fashionable.
