Change is in the air! The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and there's a pumpkin on every doorstep. Since nature is shifting, maybe it's time for you to do a little updating of your own. Fall is a great time to try out some new fashions to ring in the season. Here are four simple ways you can celebrate the cool weather, gorgeous foliage and last long days of sunshine before winter arrives.
Paint your nails in seasonal colors
You better get those pretty fingernails painted before it's time to hide them away in gloves for the next three months!
This season, rich colors inspired by the flavors of fall are all the rage. Let chocolate, cider, pumpkin pie and cinnamon guide your taste - both literally and figuratively.
For the perfect fall palette, try CND Nail Color - Chromes. Three shimmery metallic shades in gold, bronze and silver will have you covered all autumn long. Finish up with a clear topcoat to prevent chipping and fading.
Add fun accessories
In the summertime, it's too hot to sport anything but a loose fitting dresses and shorts. In the fall, however, you can add all kinds of fun accessories to your outfits. On a cool day, add warmth with a comfy knit cardigan or a crisp black blazer. Try on a pair of fun boots to keep toes cozy! Keep your hair safe and snug under a beret or a cap, and tie a scarf around your neck for some added layering.
Try a new hairdo
Breezy fall days can leave you with frizzy flyaways, which is why it's important to have a few good fall updos in your hairstyling repertoire. Instead of leaving your tresses free and loose, tie them back into a trendy fishtail braid and swing it over one shoulder for a chic look.
On days when you're feeling lazy, a low, messy bun held in place with bobby pins is an easy and stylish way to get your hair out of your face.
Apply a fresh scent
Fall is all about decadent spiced scents. To truly celebrate the season, you'll want to invest in some beauty products with seasonal fragrances that'll remind you all day longer what time of year it is.
Try CND Scentsations Apple & Cinnamon Lotion for a touch of fall fragrance that'll linger long after you've finished moisturizing.
