Faux and real leather is one of the “in” fabrics this season. Of course a leather jacket or leather legging are a easy go to, but if you want some different leather flare try leather paneled jeans!

They are a mash up of leather pants, tuxedo pants and skinny jeans. Its a great way to stay fashionable all while  staying on a budget. There are so many options available at different price ranges… there styles with tuxedo strioe down the leg, leather panels on the knees, the options are endless.

 

Fall Nail Color Trends For 2012

I’m slowly beginning to accept that the summer weather is on it way out and in comes the Fall and then… WINTER!  One thing to be happy about is the fall Fashion and beauty trends. There are some 2012 fall nail polish trends that are make headway this season  and they all are perfect for any fall festivity!  Check ‘em out below!

Style Watch: Oxblood for Fall

trend-watch-fall-oxblood

Declaring oxblood as a fall trend might not seem groundbreaking or particularly new as it is more of a recurring, seasonal theme that comes back year after year just like leather, tweed, mustard and jewel tones. However, some classic fall trends seem to be favored more than others each year and for 2012 we place our bets on oxblood to be the most notable trend. Sure, “oxblood” might not sound quite as appealing as “bubblegum pink” for instance, but don’t let the name scare you off this rich dark berry hue that flatters every skin tone, is considered to have a rather mystic vibe yet is a classic and totally work-appropriate color. In order to spread the oxblood trend, we’ve compiled a list with a few of our favorite oxblood-colored items, fashion- and beauty-wise.

Go Shopping:

P.S.: While you’re at it, make sure to check out more fabulous yet affordable oxblood items at Topshopls and ASOSls.

Fall Fashion Trends- Men

esq-lincs-fall-winter-2012-xlg

When the designer David Chu launched LINCS in 2007, the idea was to take inspiration from the golf course — it’s named for the fairways near the sea — yet eliminate any sort of country club pretense by using a restrained color palette, quality outerwear in materials like leather and wool, and a modern fit that would work for the sport, but fares just as well off the course.

Recently,the  LINCS brand launched and online site that is full of knit blazers, barracuda jackets and bombers for their 2012 Fall/Winter  collection. The pieces typically go for a few hundred dollars. If your looking for deal… be like me and shop off season and it wont hurt as much… right now their spring/summer is on sale.

MakeUp Bag- Cat Eyes

One beauty trend that has continue to live on past it 9 lives are Cat Eyes! Cat Eyes are great to add a little flare of an day eye shadow look and just a great to vamp up the drama for a night time lid . Here are some tips on how to do this fun beauty technique!

 

· Stay close to the lashes- Start with a thin liner near inner corner of your eye then make it thicker as you extend it a little past your eyes outer edge. Liquid eye liner is great for Cat Eye.

· WANT MORE DRAMA?!- Flick the line out and up. As your lining your top lid, do a quick upward stroke toward the end of the brow. To add the finishing touch line your bottom lids too but use a soft black pencil.

This simple beauty trick can add variety and pizzaz to a eye look. Its just that simple
