No Clue What to Wear? Try this Stunning Color Combo

When merchandising this week at Forever 21, I made an accidental success--a berry colored fur trimmed vest over a salmon colored silk shirt. Honestly, I was just trying to make a quick fix for a focal fixture, but once I put the two pieces together I fell in love with the combination! And beauties, after careful deliberation, I knew I would have to share this amazing color combination with you!

Berry and salmon colors are the absolute perfect combination right now. Orange and reddish-purple hues are quintessential fall colors, and this color combo is nothing short of amazing!

Although the Lunch break cardigan ($78.00 at Madewell) is expensive, I absolutely fell in love with it! It's remniscent of crushed berries and would look perfect paired with this Tall Coral Jersey Sleeveless Grandad Shirt ($36.00 at Topshop). What a better way to bring these colors together than with this Bow Foldover Wallet ($20.00 at Topshop) that is just too cute for words! The best piece above is the ASOS Short Sleeve Lace Trim Collar Blouse which is on sale for $26.19 at Asos. Not only is it a great deal, it's also got the peter pan collar and the sweet detailing that makes it a perfect pair for any menswear inspired trousers, like these Burgundy Belted Tapered Trousers ($85.00 at Topshop).

October Obsessions: Inject a Little Pumpkin Spice Into Your Beauty and Style

Savor this month's signature flavor by adding it into your wardrobe with these amazing October must-haves! Gather 'round this imaginary campfire and soak up the warmth of deep yellows, oranges, and reds among the best of beauty and fashion finds all under $50. These picks are functional enough for everyday wear and cozy enough to keep you stylishly warm.

This month, I can't get enough of warm color tones. My rust colored Melie Bianco bag is my go-to carry all, but this Cesca Crossbody Bag ($32.00 at Nordstrom) is a more affordable alternative. Of course I can't get enough of a great fedora (just ask anyone I work with!), so this Feather-Trim Wool Fedora ($14.50 at Charlotte Russe) has surely captured my eye. The Dolce Vita "Nariko" Loafers ($169.00 at Dillard's) are at the top of my wishlist this year, but the Crown Vintage Sinful Flat - Black ($39.95 at DSW) is a perfect substitute. Fair Isle prints have recently caught my attention, and these MUK LUKS Flower Fairisle Fingerless Gloves ($14.00 at 6pm.com) are super cute!

Check Mate: Get Captured by Fall's Signature Pattern

Plaid is synonymous with fall style, though some of you may be on the fence about your liking towards the pattern. For some, it conjures up thoughts of preppy back to school attire, while others might think it lumberjack and boyish.

I, personally, am not one for lumberjack or boyish inspired pieces, and though there isn't much plaid in my wardrobe, I fully believe has the potential to be your ultimate trademark flair if worn the right way. Notably, plaid pieces with feminine silhouettes saw the spotlight in Fall of 2008 in the Isabel Marant collection. This year, Thakoon's Fall 2011 collection further helped buffalo plaid surpass its lumberjack stereotype with feminine draping and bold colors.

Beauties, take note--buffalo plaid is in! It's perfect if you're into 90s grunge or menswear inspired trends. Along with your buffalo plaid piece, there should be a hint of femininity whether its all in the feminine silhouette or your girly accessories.

Wide leg jeans are best worn with a silhouette enhancing top--either a loose fitting top tucked in or a fitted top. For a day look, wear them with a big braided cognac brown belt and a killer pair of clogs. At night, switch up the look with a wide black belt, pumps, and a sequined tank or blouse. However you wear it, channel the 70s vibe!

Hot for the Moment: Printed Palazzo Pants

</p>

What's big and bold and printed all over? The hottest pants of the moment! Wide leg pants are back in a big way, but for the moment, beauties are embracing bold wide leg pants reminiscent of the 70s. But while we are loving these pants, some of us are unsure of how to wear them. So in the spirit of this post, we're going to combine a little of B's picks with How to Wear them!

Printed palazzos can make a bold statement, and if worn the right way, this little 70s-esque outfit will generate tons of compliments. So what do you wear these wild pants with?

You'll definitely need some clogs, although a pair of high, round toe pumps will also do the trick. I suggest steering clear of wearing these with flats because the bottoms will likely drag the floor, leaving your outfit looking messy.

A great way to create a curvaceous silhouette is to add a blazer, which will broaden your shoulders and cinch in your waist, creating the perfect hourglass figure.

A button up top is the safest way to go. Wear it tucked or untucked depending on your style or mood. If you're going for the baggy, boho look wear the blouse untucked and pair with a floppy fedora. If you want a more polished look, wear the button up tucked in and add a chic wide belt.

For a stand out statement, bright out one color from the print and find a corresponding blouse in that color. It's a great way to tie in a central color to your look.

How do I wear my printed palazzos? I have the Forever 21 Knit Palazzo Pants ($22.80) above, which I plan on pairing with a heathered golden top from H&M and a cobalt blue belt.
