The long days of summer are winding down. The kids are back in school and despite the fact that fall is still several weeks away, the change of season can be felt in the air. Soon we will be trading our sandals for boots and grabbing a cardigan to throw over that lightweight sundress you just can't put away yet. Before you order that pumpkin spice latte or start picking out mums and pumpkins for your front yard, take time to enjoy the last vestiges of summer and embrace the coming trends of fall that you can start wearing now.
Swap out those pastel-colored nail polishes with autumnal hues – Dark Teal, like Essie's "Go Overboard" is a beautiful shade for those who like darker nail colors. Cinnamon shades, Pearlescent polishes and Mauves are the go-to neutrals while Rust colors with orange undertones like OPI's "Suzi Needs a Loch-smith" are a great way to switch up the classic red. For anyone who prefers a little sparkle in their manicure, the Champagne hues will be a big nail trend. If your personality yearns for something more off-beat, try a French manicure with a twist: swap the classic white nail tips for a different color.
You can thank the 90's and early 00's for the season's hottest hairstyles. The High Ponytail isn't just for high school cheerleaders. Style yours with a loosely curled tail or in messy waves. A Deep Side Part is one of the easiest ways to change up your hair and can be worn with just about any cut. A Messy Bun with Tiny Tendrils is back. Casually, but artfully pile your hair on top of your head with two thin strands left out to frame the face for a look that is both laid back and chic.
