Elan Style Holiday Beauty: Nail Color!


Whether you know it or not, the 2013-2014 fall/winter Pantone color trend report has already been dictating your winter wardrobe, giving way to some exciting, vibrant, varied and subdued hues, such as Emerald, Samba, Carafe, Turbulence and more! Why give so much importance to colors? Because, they create the mood, they are the soul and the body of the up and coming fashion trends, promising to make your cold-weather styling inspirational! And as any tried and true fashionista knows, getting dressed doesn’t just stop at the clothes! Our resolution for the season,  being put together from H to T, (America’s Next Top Model talk for ‘head to toe!’) This means not overlooking even the smallest detail, for example, nail color!

Elements of emerald add a touch of elegance and refinement to any wardrobe. Perfect for both everyday wear and for special occasions, emerald green fascinates and sparkles at any time of the year, but it is holiday when we love to rock this color most!

Dramatic, bold and extravagant, samba red becomes an instant eye-opener especially, when you aren’t wearing any distracting accessories. Try Samba nails with your little black dress! It’s hard to imagine any season without the passionate red trend, which gets way more dramatic and expressive this year.

Turbulence gray is universally flattering and more practical, versatile and elegant compared to its rival, black. This on-trend color symbolizes the very nature of fall and winter, from wet asphalt to cold graphite skies. Noble turbulence gray comes to prove that this shade doesn’t mean boring, instead think, sophisticated!

‘Tis the season for cinnamon, brandy, burgundy and bourbon, let these traditional holiday flavors inspire you. Carafe brown symbolizes femininity, sophistication and elegance! This sumptuous shade of brown is best worn with neutral, soothing colors such as pearl or milk. But it also looks smashing with something a little more vibrant, say, samba red or koi orange!

Halloween Boo-tiful

With polyester cobwebs and black spiders dangling in windows across the city, it’s pretty obvious that Halloween has crept up on us once again. And, as we find ourselves only weeks away from the hair-raising holiday, we are faced with a dreadful decision — what will our costumes be? No doubt, some of us embrace this fantasy-filled occasion and have been planning our wicked getups since last November. But, if your costume cauldron is looking a little sparse, this decision can be a harrowing one.

Alas, we’re here to inspire your otherworldly Halloween looks…

The jilted socialite trophy-wife: Ta-da! Arm yourself with a phone receiver and a martini, and you’re ready for a glam, spooky night out!

Elan Style: Fall Fashion Fix!

So we totally have you covered when it comes to your fall transition wardrobe (check out our new arrivals must-haves from Bobi, below), but if you’re anything like us, sometimes it feels like your hairstyle is always stuck in last season. Before you go for something drastic, try out a look we LOVE and that is super simple to replicate at home, the Fishtail Halo Braid. We love updos in the winter because it pulls your hair up and away from the dramatic collars and statement necklaces. It will also spare you a trip to the salon and months of waiting for your hair to grow back ;)
