Insider updates from the most style obsessed place on the planet.
Black eyeliner is a classic, but makeup artists say dark purple is surprisingly flattering for everyone. Clinque makes a gorgeous one (Starry Plum) that will freshen up any look.
We know—it’s hard to get excited about buying rain boots. But now there are cute ones with chain details (like Burberry’s) and patterns (like Gucci’s).
You’ve done those dark gray nails all year—so for your next manicure, try gold. The glam shade feels just right at this time of year. (Try Mash by Nars.)
Our new favorite boot? A knee-length one in soft suede (think brown, tan or grey) that’s totally unadorned. Find one with a little slouch for the right effect.
Feminine, 70s-inspired bow-tied blouses are back. Pair them with crisp pencil skirts or skinny jeans and you’ll be right on trend.
Romantic lace pumps are a gorgeous evening choice this season. If they feel too delicate for you, look for one with a platform.
A siren red manicure makes a statement like no other. Both YSL’s Sublime Red and Dolce & Gabbana’s Fire are sexy and classic, and will give your Monday-Friday look a blast of chic.
A great pair of biker boots will get you through the winter. Try them with tights, an ultra-feminine dress and a belted cardi.
Step away from the tweezers—strong brows are back. Fill in with a pencil slightly darker than your natural color, and set hairs in place with a brow groomer (Lancôme and Bobbi Brown make good ones).
If there’s one must-have shoe this fall, it’s is a high-heeled ankle bootie. Pair yours with a pencil skirt or slim trousers and your wardrobe will thank you.
Gold was big on the runways this season, but one shot is really all you need. We suggest a pair of gleaming gold shoes. Heel or flat? Up to you.
Almost every designer made a tough-chic leather jacket for fall. Consider a snug-fitting biker style—it’s a knockout over a cocktail dress.
A leopard-print handbag will instantly update your daily wardrobe. It’s on-trend now, classic enough for later. Look for a ladylike one with some structure.
Take a risk this fall with bold berry lips. (Two shades we love are NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Volga or Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Port.) They’re lush and sultry, but not over the top.
You only need one item to get this season’s smoky eye—a creamy black pencil with an angled sponge. (Estee Lauder and Dior make good ones.) Draw a line, smudge it and you’re good to go.
