Steal the Runway - Blonde Looks We Love for Fall

This fall's luxe fashions owe a lot to the '90s. Think long, lean silhouettes, minus the grunge. Same goes for the must-have hair this season: long, polished, soft, and swinging with natural movement and body. Here are our tips for adding a little runway to your everyday style—from the wardrobe pieces, fabrics, and colours we crave, to the easiest way to achieve a beautiful, effortless hair style that's perfect for the office or a night out.

Great Lengths. Choose long, relaxed trousers. Try on silky skirts that skim the floor. Rethink menswear with lean, feminine pant suits. Invest in a beautifully tailored camel coat. With the right fabrics and cut, the streamlined silhouette is timeless and effortlessly stylish.

Plaid, Redefined. Keep your oversized, flannel shirts in storage, ladies. But do seek out the sleekest pair of high-waisted, plaid trousers. The vertical lines of the plaid elongate the leg. Also consider a fitted plaid blazer or a flattering, high-waisted dress—perfect for work. Chic, pulled-together, and perfect for cooler weather.

Go Crimson. Make a statement with retro-inspired, eye-popping colour. We're dreaming of emerald, tangerine, plum, and chartreuse. Pair an apple-green dress with a cobalt cardigan. Throw on a head-turning, crimson shift-dress. Then step into a room, and watch those heads turn.

Colour Me Autumn. If your look tends toward a quieter palette, don't fret. Subtle colours were all over the runway, and we loved the sophisticated combinations of those autumnal, steely grays and coppery browns. When paired with classic heels and a chic, thin belt, you'll always look timelessly stylish.

Natural Volume. To achieve the natural-looking, volumized hair style that's hot this season, use Luxurious Volume Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner to build thickness to fine, limp hair. Create soft, touchable lift by spraying the roots with Luxurious Volume Blow-Dry Lotion Root Booster before blow-drying. Once hair is dry, curl hair using a ¾" iron, wrapping large sections of hair, holding each section for 5 seconds, then releasing. Gently brush hair into the shape you desire. Finish the look with a lightweight hairspray, like Luxurious Volume Extra Hold Hairspray. And to revive your volume on-the-go, spray Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher at the roots, then gently tousle hair with fingertips.
