A Styled Mind: Relaxed Autumn Vibes

New York City is a place where high fashion can turn into a buzzing street style trend in a minute. Our 2016 Blogger Look Book featured some of this fall’s most talked about trends: slip dresses, bomber jackets, a touch of velvet, metallic accents, sleek tops, and reconstructed jeans. It’s time to wrap up our feature with Ashley Weddington, an admirer of all things fashion, hence why she’s the face of A Styled Mind. Weddington’s focus on ASM is to showcase “different ways to put ensembles together while staying on trend all year round.” In our look book, Weddington’s outfit features a low cut, split-neck blouse with a tie-front. The blouse is black and geometrically patterned in orange and green hues. The burnt sienna and olive tones affirm the vibe of the season. She pairs the blouse with a pair of relaxed fit cropped denim cut-offs. The frayed ends at the bottom of the legs give the outfit a worn-in feel. On her feet, Weddington sports a pair of black strapped heels. Finally, she accessorizes with …

Stylophyle: A Little Edgy & A Little Sporty

Stylophile- n. A person who likes to dress up and seems to have a different outfit for every occasion. v. To dress up in fancy clothes whenever you go out because you don’t know who you’re going to meet, and you don’t want to get dressed down. Influenced by fashion, art, culture, and beauty around the world, Sabrina Poon describes herself as just that—a stylophile. Except, she stylized it into Stylophyle. Poon is a New York City-based blogger who loves traveling, food, fashion, and repeat! With beauty and brains, Poon’s full-time job isn’t a style consultant, but a neurology nurse. Surely she did not don scrubs for our fall look book; but instead, a pair of mesh drawstring pants and a light blue button down. Right now is the time when every cool girl (and guy) in NYC grabs their leather biker jacket and runs outside. The demure vibes in Poon’s look totally lets the biker jacket off the hook, but for added coolness—don’t hesitate grabbing it! She finishes up with pointy black leather heels, a black fringe bag, and sunglasses. Her ever-changing …

La Selma Style: Chic, Bold, & Sophisticated

“Chic, bold, and sophisticated,” this is how Selma Ali of La Selma Style describes her personal style. In YHM’s Fall 2016 Look Book, Ali sports a simple white V-neck tee. She compensates by directing all the attention to her dazzling metallic skirt, which goes well below her knees for cooler weather. On her feet, Ali rocks a pair of fluorescent yellow t-strapped, bow heels. She accessorizes with aviator shades, a large black clutch, and a silver triple-collar necklace which matches with her skirt perfectly. While autumn is all about deep, dark transitional colors–Ali puts a pleasant twist on the norm with her bold heels. Easily recreated, you can purchase a plain white V-neck tee just about anywhere, and your own long metallic skirt at stores like American Apparel and H&M. You can even swap the yellow heels with a different fluorescent color, like these. By Sunny Tsao | Photography by Nicholas Perrone

Simply Audree Kate: Earthed Denim

New York City-based blogger, Audree Kate, otherwise known as Simply Audree Kate, dresses up for our Fall 2016 Look Book! Audree’s sun-kissed highlights and contagious smile are  just two of the reasons she’s featured in this year’s summer to fall style transition. The budding stylist’s unique take on her personal style is the third. “A mix between your grandmother’s vintage floral couch and a rock concert. It’s feminine yet edgy, and has a vintage twist,” mentions Audree. She paired her classic denim jacket with a long sleeve pinstripe button down. The sleeves of the button down are rolled over to the cuffs of the denim jacket, giving the look an urban flare and seriousness while still being laid back. The tiered and velvet skirt is the perfect shade for fall: olive green. The subtle hue blends with all the colors that come with autumn. She doesn’t let the earth tones stop there; Audree dons a pair of cognac colored mules. She finishes her outfit off with sunglasses and a dazzling gold statement necklace. We’ve got three more look book features to add …

AbstractSmile: Bold Lips, Mom Jeans and a Bomber Jacket 

Stephanie Campian, better known by her blog name, ABSTRACTSMILE fronts YHM’s fall 2016 Look Book in her new obsession, the bomber jacket. Campian’s look screams “edge” with her black leather choker and black heel booties! She keeps it simple beneath the bomber with a basic silk camisole and mom jeans. The dark shades accommodate the season’s ambiance and color scheme. Bomber jackets are great for the transition to fall because, unlike a parka, it accommodates this period where you leave in the morning and it’s frigid; but by the time you leave school or work, it’s smoldering hot out. She throws on a black leather messenger with iron-ons for an added retro feel. The iron-ons give the pack a thrift shop look. The cat-eye sunglasses takes care of the rest alongside the bold red lip splashed against the demure canvas. By Sunny Tsao | Photography: Nicholas Perrone

Neon Fox: A Minimalistic Approach to Fall Fashion

Alicia Nicholls, a Brooklyn-based fashion blogger, is the face behind, Neon Fox. Nicholls’ blog focuses on beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. It’s the culmination of Brooklynite style meets Manhattanite, the embracing of natural hair, and the autonomy of one’s mood in dictating style. She describes her personal style as, “Cool girl vibez with lots of edge!” Noting the latest trends of 2016, she allows her style to portray it all from incorporating Pantone’s Color of the Year, rose quartz, in a recent blog post to donning a slip dress over everything inspired by Valentino’s Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear collection. Here, Nicholls is sporting a simple, black slip over a short sleeved, mock neck shirt–from Tobi with cotton canvas high-tops by Converse. With this look, Nicholls can revel in the beauty of layering for the chilly weather. The dark hues coalesce with the ambience of autumn and everything it comes with. The basic slip is made edgier with a mock neck zip-up shirt. Converse high-tops are a classic for a reason. They add instant cool to any outfit. Nicholls takes advantage of this fact and keeps …
