SOPHIE’S CHOICE… FOR FALL

For California-based glam girl, Sophie Elkus—the brainchild behind the popular blog, AngelFoodStyle—autumn weather stays sundrenched; but that doesn’t stop this self-proclaimed fashion-and-beauty addict from incorporating some lust-worthy changes into her wardrobe. “It may not feel like fall, but I love to combine a hybrid of trends from the runways with my own timeless tricks that work year after year.” And this season, Sophie’s sharing her prime picks with you; a beautifully-curated collection of the hottest head-to-toe looks…tweaked in Sophie’s inimitable style.

 

 Sophie-FallTrends_6“Strong accessories—like structured bags and masculine fedoras in neutral shades of camel, mahogany, black, or forest green—lend a stylish statement this fall. But I think it’s important to let hair go ladylike when everything else is intense: For me, that means really gleaming, loose locks…powered up with a dab of Joico’s K-PAK Protect and Shine Serum.

 Sophie-FallTrends_7“The powerhouse fashion house, Burberry, caused a stir with their covetable blanket coats on the 2014 runways—so be on the lookout for other brands (including more affordable versions) to follow suit. These stylish, slouchy pieces are the perfect chilly-weather statement…wearable East, West, and every place in between!”

 Sophie-FallTrends_8“The sheer dresses and skirts in style this fall provide a unique, sensual vibe to any outfit; especially when done up in classic black. But when you wear them, remember to keep makeup sheer as well…with gorgeous, tawny/peachy neutrals that warm up your skin.”
 Sophie-FallTrends_9“Brights may sing spring, but they’re absolutely eye-catching this season, too. You’ll see high-contrast pairings of some truly bold shades, coupled with high-contrast hair—a slicked-back ‘do, say, kept in perfect place with Joico’s Power Sculpting Gel.”

Sophie-FallTrends_1“I love a light jacket with a fur collar or cozy fur infinity scarf—either real of faux. It’s the perfect way to stay warm without wearing a heavy coat; and it delivers a fall vibe, even if the rest of your outfit is jeans and a white blouse.”

Sophie-FallTrends_2“I tend to gravitate towards lighter, daintier jewelry in the summertime; but  once fall hits, I love a chunky, gold, statement necklace as the focal point of my outfit. The warm metal is especially flattering on blondes, so I try to amp up the shine factor as much as possible: Right now, I’m loving Joico’s Gold Dust Shimmer Spray, because it delivers this beautiful sheen of rose-gold to my blonde highlights.”

Sophie-FallTrends_3“Over-the-knee boots were a celebrated trend last fall, but they’re back and bigger than ever this season. You’ll see them paired with skinny jeans, but they work just as well with short shift dresses… great for balancing the heat out here on the West Coast.”

Sophie-FallTrends_4“Fall is all about layers—like starting with a sleeveless blouse, then adding a light sweater and a structured jacket as the day progresses. I take the same approach to hair care in the cooler months, starting with Joico’s Heat Set Blow Dry Perfecting Crème on damp hair for weightless detangling; and finishing with IronClad Thermal Protectant Spray before any flat-ironing or curling.”

Sophie-FallTrends_5“Knitwear totally stole the show on all the Fall 2014 runways—which is so great, because it’s incredibly wearable, comfortable, and flattering. Fortunately, flyaway hair is never an issue—even when I pull a sweater over my head—because I’ve got Joico’s Flip Turn Volumizing Finishing Spray at the ready:  One spritz and static is just gone.
