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

I’m simply lost without my personal carry-on. Why? The reason is simple – it has everything one could possibly need at any given moment: small snacks for a quick bite, high-heels for a potential glam night, a teeny-tiny first aid kit for whatever life throws at you, and the list could go on. Mixing style with versatility is an ideal factor for a student on the go to a top corporate woman. With a new season on the horizon, we’ve narrowed down a few trends for you to splurge on to help you find a new best friend – whatever your price range! Edgy Popstar Coach, $895 | J.

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 …
