Fall trend: lovely lace

Loved the lace trend from spring and summer? Then you’ll be super-happy to see that lace is still hot for fall. The way to wear it now: in shades of black, blush, and burgundy, creating a romantic look that’s seasonally appropriate and nowhere near bridal.

Fall trend: moto jackets

I absolutely love moto jackets–it’s kind of a wonder I only own two thus far, one in black and one in a lovely blush pink. This season, the rock-chic staple isn’t just black faux leather: it’s in a variety of colors and prints, in denim, in knits, in metallics…you name it, you can probably find a moto jacket to suit! Here are just a few really cute ones that caught my eye.

Five hot nail colors to fall for this season

I love nail polish and I love  updating my polish “wardrobe” when the seasons change. Here are five hot nail colors to fall for this season, depending on your usual polish pick:

1. Blackberry wine is hot this year, and is a great update if you love vampy red polish. Zoya Nail Polish in Toni, $8,

2. More of a trendsetter? Emerald green is the natural successor to summer’s run of mint greens. Julep Nail Color in Hoch, $14,

3. If you love the girliest of pinks, do something a little different–but still glam–with a gold mani. Wet n Wild Fergie Nail Color in Grammy Gold, $3.49,

4. Prefer a nude shade so nothing clashes? Go a little more edgy with a shade of gray–it’s still a neutral. Sonia Kashuk Nail Color in Dime A Dozen, $4.79,

5. Black is so last season. This fall, blues are almost black (but not quite) and flecked with shimmer for a totally non-goth look. Zoya Nail Polish in Ibiza, $8,
