We’re not talking football. We’re talking fashion and beauty…and you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who’s as passionate about it as LA blogger/stylist/Instagram-star Deniz Selin (a.k.a. LeFashionMonster). So passionate, in fact, that her fall shopping list is already written and ready to roll. We snagged a peek and fell in love. We think you will, too…
Why: Anyone who’s ever thumbed through my Instagram feed know that I love a good shoe. Whether it’s a pump, strappy heel, stiletto, or tennis shoe, I always make sure that my shoe game is on point.
What: Fun, chunky heels—the ones you wore in summer—can transition easily into fall.
How: Choose a bold, vibrant pair to pop up a neutral outfit; or team neutral heels with one of your more colorful ensembles. It’s fun to mix and match.
Why: All over social media, I’m known for my big, volumized hair, and this product is my secret weapon—the one I turn to day after day.
What: The product is so easy to use—you just mist it right into dry hair and scrunch/style with fingers—and it literally doubles your texture instantly.
How: I love those Bohemian waves (and have every intention of wearing them right through fall and winter), and Hair Shake is my go-to for creating this signature, LeFashionMonster look.
Why: I am absolutely in love with choker necklaces; my favorite is a thin velvet ribbon and I will never retire it from my accessories collection.
What: This fall, I’m seeing more and more “statement” chokers that actually cover the entire neck.
How: The ones with different, interesting embellishments on them—like, beading or jewels—are perfect for pulling together a new fall outfit.
Why: In the fall, I love to wear a really intense lip with subtle eye makeup—it’s great for day or night and gives a mysterious, classy twist to your look.
What: I think the darker the lip, the more fall style I’m portraying; right now, that means bold, wine colors with a matte finish.
How: I’m all over Smash Box’s Matte Liquid Lipstick…it’s a rich look that stays put and is easy to apply.
Why: Velvet’s hardly a new trend on the fall fashion scene, but I’ve noticed a vibrant update this season and am excited about all the choices.
What: The colors are intense, and the unexpectedly elegant fabric really brings out that trendy fall vibe.
How: I love to tie velvet into my outfits in clever ways…by, say, adding a pair of velvet shoes, a blazer, accessories (my famous choker!), or even a full-on velvet statement dress.
Why: Metallics and shimmer always seem to come back in different ways; and this year, I’m seeing more and more gold. It’s a fun trend and best combined with carefully chosen accessories.
What: When wearing gold, I like to keep my look simple and classy—nothing head to toe or too blinged-out.
How: Pair a gold, metallic blazer with a simple white dress for a night out; or incorporate the metal into your look with lively accessories, like a fun evening clutch or strappy heels.
Fall is coming… get your hair ready for the cold-weather with these tips.
