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.
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.
