Fall / Winter 2016 Trend Report: Clothing

Spring/Summer ’17 shows are wrapping up in Paris this week, and in honor of fashion month coming to a close, I thought I’d share my favorite looks from F/W ’16 shows and five trends you should be following this season! You can also shop these similar (and budget-friendly) trends! The rest of this week I’ll also be covering accessory, jewelry, hair and beauty trends, so stay tuned and get ready to shop for fall and winter! xo

fall-trend-clothing_page_1Faux fur has been a go-to fall and and winter statement for me the past couple of years, but what has changed this season? The color, the prints and volume! Faux fur will not be tamed to a neutral fitted vest anymore – make fur your outfit’s statement piece this fall and winter!

Say ‘yes’ to velvet! Whether you go for a small embellishment like a velvet choker or cami, or a full on velvet suit – either way, this retro fabric is soft, perfect for layering, and going from day to night.

These are quite possibly a color combination I never thought of, but I’m in love! I’m a huge fan of blush and dusty pinks, and I love mustard yellow tones! The key styling point from the runway, was to keep the pink as your main piece and add yellow as a pop or additional layer to the outfit.

I.Love.Bomber.Jackets! Although my go-to fall jacket is leather, I love the sporty and effortless look of a bomber jacket. I suggest going for one with embellishments or patterns to really kick your outfit into high gear.

In case you haven’t noticed, the 90’s are back, and it feels so good. Transition your summer dresses into fall and winter with layering a simple cotton turtleneck underneath! You an contrast prints, or bring out the dress’ undertones with the turtleneck in seconds. This is the easiest way to transition pieces, plus your neck will stay nice and warm!

#Got2Standout with göt2b


simplyaudreekate-img_7962

I remember it was around fourth grade when I really started doing my hair and taking an interest in beauty. There was one hairstyle in particular that I was dying to have – it was an angled bob where the front part of my hair hit around my chin and then the back was super layered and I could spike it up. Think Kate Gosselin hair, but a little longer, edgier and more punk (Yikes… I know). But, if you remember, that hairstyle was super cool at the time! Anyway, my mom refused to let me get that haircut (bless her good taste). In compromise, I got a layered bob and my mom bought me göt2b glued to spike/style my hair. I instantly fell in love. The hairstyle came back in sixth grade and used the the glue to flip out pieces of my bob – very early 2000’s right?

Well, I’m jumping on the göt2b train again, but this time, with no horrible spiked bob – a new lob and some new products! I teamed up with göt2b to test out three of their newest products and participate in their #got2standout contest! I tested out Rockin’ It Encore Fresh Dry Shampoo, Beach Trippin’ Salt-Infusion Waving Spray and Playful Texture Creme Pomade. You can see the products below , more information about them, and my thoughts! Overall, I absolutely love göt2b products and was so excited to test out these new ones!

You can also participate in the #got2standout campaign by sharing a selfie on Instagram and tagging with #got2standout and #selfiecontest. Then, göt2b will “surprise and delight” users who submit a selfie with the hashtags with free göt2b product! XO

DRY SHAMPOO

I am a frequent, possibly too frequent, user of dry shampoo. I have used a large variety of brands of dry shampoo and even make-shift at home remedies, but I’m always looking for something that will not only help any greasy hair, but refresh my look and give my hair more volume. I loved the göt2b dry shampoo because it was lightweight on my hair, worked quickly and even smelled good!

TEXTURE CREME POMADE

This texture creme lifts and loosens layers, bends and separates ends, and overall helps with styling. I have loved using this after curling my hair because it helps separate the pieces for a more messy/natural look and tones down my fly aways and baby hairs. The pomade is easy to use, not sticky like other styling gels, and smelled good too! I really enjoyed the updated version of the pomade and can’t wait to keep using this when styling my hair.

WAVING SPRAY

I typically wash my hair at night and let it air dry, so I was really excited to use this waving spray! My hair is pretty straight but if I put it in a bun, or use product like this waving spray, I can get some body to it. This helps speed up my morning routine because since I already have body/wave to my hair, due to the spray, I only have to curl my top layer! I love it and can’t wait to keep using it.

Lazy Girl 5-minute Hairstyles

simplyaudreekate-51

Messy top knots are no stranger to me. The longest part of my morning routine is my hair – I have thick hair, and even with the lob, it takes awhile to do anything. So lately, I’ve been feeling extra lazy and am drawn to quick easy up-dos. A few years ago on the blog, I did a “1920’s Updo In Less Than 5 Minutes” post and I wanted re-create it today. This style is super easy to do, and it changes up your go-to top knot routine. At the end of the post you can see other quick hairstyles you can do in the morning.

The Vintage Midi Skirt

simplyaudreekate-samkelly_dsc6417-1

Happy Monday!  Over the weekend I went to brunch with friends at Jacob’s Pickles in the Upper West Side. If you’re looking for amazing southern comfort food during your next trip to NYC, you have to go there! After brunch we went to Boat Basin Café for some drinks on the water. On Sunday I went to a blogger Soul Cycle class; it was actually my first time doing Soul Cycle and it was really good! Other than that, I relaxed and prepared for the busy weeks ahead! I hope you have a wonderful Monday and you can shop this similar look in the links below! xo
