Luxe Fall: Black and Camel

Luxe Fall:  Black and Camel

Luxe Fall: Black and Camel

A color combination that always looks luxe is black and camel. A classic combination that works year round, but looks extra appropriate for fall. This fall I found the perfect luxe fall look with black and camel with the mark. Drape Expectations Dress.

My go-to dress this fall has been this mark. Drape Expectations Dress.  It’s super easy to wear, especially for work, one and done!  This dress features a camel sheath dress with a black overlay to create a color block effect.  It’s in a crepe like fabric making the classic color combo even more luxe.  The color blocking/cut in effect also gives the illusion of a slimmer you, and that’s never a bad thing!

To luxe up the look even more I’m wearing the mark. Tough It Out Necklace, Mixed and Matched Bracelet and a genuine leather tote, the Avon Whipstitch Leather and Suede tote.  (all available here)

For the warm fall we’ve been having, this dress has seen a lot of wear just by itself.  Now that its officially November, this dress can easily transition with a cardi or blazer, some tights and boots.  I have this great camel and blacked striped long open cardigan I love wearing with it! It would also look really cute with a black turtleneck underneath, as it has that faux jumper look to it.  A classic dress like this is never a bad idea to add to your closet!

You can shop my entire look at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and because this dress is $42 you already qualify for the A Box for only $10!  Get red-y by adding this on and you’ll have a head to toe look perfect for you luxe fall!  (see more about the A-box here)

If the world of alicia was the internet #wrapdress would totally be trending.  I’m slightly obsessing over wrap dresses and finding a few to add to my arsenal after picking up this navy one at Ross (also currently obsessing over, such great dress finds lately!).  This past wrap dress look is one of my all time favorite outfits (and posts!).  A wrap dress can be SUPER flattering on all body shapes, that’s why they’re so popular and Diane von Furstenberg is a freakin legend.  Here are the wrap dresses I’m currently obsessing over:

Avon Bordeaux Knit Dress – and paired with that adorable faux fur stole, I think this has to be my Thanksgiving day look!  (s-3x $24.99)

Diane von Furstenberg Long Sleeve Floor Length Wrap Dress – Another reason I need the Avon version is because I don’t have $548 to splurge on a DVF.  LOVE this full length red with the cute neck scarf and booties… swoon!

Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress

Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress – and Lexi pondering…

An easy fitting navy dress is never a bad idea.  This Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress is one of those throw and go options.  The keyhole neckline means you don’t need a necklace and the exposed zipper and split back add just enough style to stand out.  I like this dress for fall because it’s navy, which is a great transition shade, and it’s super easy to wear, and will go with warm weather sandals, to booties, to cold weather boots!

Also Wearing:  Earrnings, Bracelet:  Avon Lavena Collections; Shoes:  Shoedazzle, Bag:  Brooks Brothers (but for a similar look try the Avon Saffiano Leather Dome Bag)

Linda’s Fall Dress:  Avon Open Shoulder Mock-Neck Dress $29.99

What To Wear In Late Summer

What To Wear In Late Summer

What To Wear In Late Summer

As much as I’ll “never let go” of summer, late summer is kinda nice.  The transitioning weather allows for a refresh on the looks.  Can work in new fall trends, colors and staples, all while still embracing the last bits of summer.

What I'm wearing for late summer.

What I’m wearing for late summer.

Fall Trend:  Bell Sleeves.  Late Summer Wear Now: Cropped Sleeve in Light Flowy Fabric.

Bell Sleeves For Wear Now Wear Later

Bell Sleeves For Wear Now Wear Later

Statement sleeves are not only a hot summer trend but a cool fall one as well.  So what’s better than a blouse that works for both!?  This Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon has a cropped sleeve making it perfect for transitioning weather and looks.  Choosing a fall trend in a lightweight fabric flowy fabric allows you more wear year round out of it.  Plus, the peep of lace at the top lightens it up too.

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

Fall Trend:  Out Of The Ordinary Baubles.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Gold Chain Details.

Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace

Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace and mark. Gleam With Pride Ring

A big trend in fall jewelry is out of the ordinary necklaces.  Your standard run of the mill statement necklace is not going to cut it, you need something legit.  “How ’bout some gold bracelets” or gold necklace if you will… thick gold chains and a unique pendant drop allow this necklace to stand out from the crowd.  Additionally, the bright gold is a perfect late summer metal, but this would look equally as chic worn with a simple black turtleneck or your favorite plaid top come fall.  The Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace is part of the Breast Cancer Shop For The Greater Goods Shop at my eBoutique.  What makes it even more unique than it’s look, is that 20% of the proceeds go to support the Breast Cancer Crusade, which is in style year round!

Embrace Big Gold Chains

Embrace Big Gold Chains

Fall Color:  Jewel Tones.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Amethyst Blouse.

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

By wearing brighter jewel tone now, like amethyst, vs a deep tone, like plum, allows you to keep your look more late summer.  I love this Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon for the perfect wear now jewel toned shade.

Jewel Tones Now and Later

Fall Staple:  Jeans.  Late Summer Wear Now:  White Jeans.

White Deconstructed Jeans for Late Summer

White Deconstructed Jeans for Late Summer

It was a brisk mid 80’s so I was able to wear pants… like the first time since May.  These destructed white jeans from mark. are finally seeing some wear!  White jeans are the perfect way to create a late summer look, they brighten up those fall trends and colors.  Come later in the season, pair this exact look with your dark denim and boots for a true fall look.

Fall Staple:  Suede.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Pops Of Suede.
