Get The Look: Kristen Bell

Kristen Bell made a recent appearance at an event dressed bundled up in a colorful scarf and sharp blazer. With the newly brisk fall evenings come the time to start layering your outfits.

To get Kristen’s look, start with a silk minidress like the Area No 3 Dress by Aaron Ashe ($256). This piece is great worn alone, but to give it more structure like Kristen, add a black tuxedo blazer like ours from Mason. Add semi-sheer tights, a colorful scarf like the one we chose from Jet, and black booties like these from Schutz and you’ll look as fabulous as Kristen Bell.

Shop these items:

1. Aaron Ashe Area No. 3 Dress ($256)
2.  Mason Tuxedo Blazer ($400)
3. Jet Sun Burst Scarf ($25)
4.  Schutz Zipper Bootie ($150)

Trend Report: Sequins

Sequins have reemerged to shine some more this season as exemplified on the Balmain runway. This trend is one which must be executed carefully. It’s best to wear one piece with sequins and go basic everywhere else. Unless of course, your hero piece is a sequined dress. In that case, go minimal by selecting basic black platform pumps and little or no jewelry. 

Here are some of the great sequin pieces available now at LIVE! On Sunset:

1. Robert Rodriguez Sequin Skirt ($300) – 310.360.1660
2. Rory Beca Asymmetrical Sequin Dress ($775)
3. Robert Rodriguez Sequin Short ($400) – 310.360.1660

Top 3: Autumn Pieces

 

Fall is here! And so is the time to trade out cut-offs for leggings and tank-tops for cashmere sweaters. Many shoppers find themselves hitting the stores now to update their wardrobes. Trends cycle in and out, and are of course so fun to indulge in—but for the shopper who is equally fashion and financially conscious, trendy items aren’t always the best investment. Each season, there are staple items that will carry you through the months and serve as your wardrobe foundation. 

Without further ado, here are three sensational autumn pieces that are a sure-fire return on your investment.

1. Robert Rodriguez Leather Jacket ($800) – 310.360.1660 – A fitted leather jacket is both fashion-forward and functional. It will go with ev-er-y-thing!
2. Sjobeck Plaid Shirt ($158) – 310.360.1660 – The plaid shirt is multifunctional. Wear it solo with leggings and flats, or layer it over long sleeve dresses.
3. Joie New Orleans Boot ($465)  – Flat boots are a must for trekking about during fall. They’re warm, comfortable, and classic. Every girl needs to invest in a pair.

We’re sure you understand the value of accessories. They can make or break an outfit or serve as the hero piece. This season statement necklaces were huge—in both size and significance. Naturally this month’s Accessories Report would be naked without inclusion of one.

Trend Report: Military

This season, the reveille is sounding, and it’s forward-march with military flare. Fall collections featured corporal themes that make tailored looks fun and fashion-forward.

1. Joie The Roper Fringe Boot ($465) – Flat, lace-up combat-reminiscent boots are a quick way to tap into the military look, yet they are classic enough to outlast the the trend’s lifespan (though trends always recycle). Joie’s boots have a vintage vibe that have an older-world militia feel.

2. AKA New York Stripe Sweater ($270) – As Seen In Lucky Magazine, this stripe sweater from AKA New York features epaulette-like beaded shoulder detailing. The shoulder patches have a distinct sergeant look but retains a girly style. 

3. Current/Elliott Majorette Jacket ($284) – This tailored jacket from denim-favorite, Current/Elliott is the perfect staple piece for executing the military trend. It features gold studs along the lapel accents that makes for a major statement.

4. Tarah Smith The Jet Setter Bag ($575) – The jet setter bag (also available in an army-green hue) choices leather from a palette of common military shades: cognac, brown, and olive. The huge carry-all has amazing gold hardware on the handles and patent leather accents. This is the ideal carry-on companion with the impending holiday traveling season. Wrap up in a neutral sweater coat, leggings, and flat boots and you’ll be airplane-ready and on-trend!

Beyond boarding airplanes and lounging at home, tracksuits are yesterday’s solution to comfortable fashion, and now a passé trend. That doesn’t mean we don’t still yearn for comfortable outfits that give us free-range in movement!

Today’s MM shows that it’s possible to look polished yet feel completely relaxed. Pair this Quail Reversible Skirt($206—yay for two-in-one skirts) with a soft, shapely K.Allyn V-Neck Tee ($65) and pull it together with a cropped jacket like Crispin & Basilio’s Relaxed Crop Trench ($445). Add a sparkly necklace for a pretty touch.
