Q What’s one new thing women should wear or do to look

fabulous this fall?

“The options are endless, but one overriding message prevails. The modern woman doesn’t come in a cookie-cutter package. There is an intoxicating sense of liberation afoot. The time is right for her to explore the trends and express her own, one-woman brand — to stir things up. A novelty vest is a fabulous fall look to have in your closet. Whether it’s furry, fluffy, quilted or tailored, when paired with a longer skirt, it earns extra style points.”

— Arlene Goldstein, vice-president of trend merchandising,

Belk Department Stores

“This fall, a must-have for every woman is something studded. Fit some dazzle into your life with the Mixit solid knit leggings boasting studded detail down the leg (sold at J.C. Penney). A woman can build onto her leggings with the perfect oversized top paired with a studded belt and leather ankle boots. This trendy fall collection is a must and will fit perfectly into any woman’s wardrobe.”

— Andrew Miller, store leader, J.C. Penney at Alliance Town Center

“Tunics are a ‘must have’ for fall of 2014. They are great for creating quick, fun, easy outfits and look fabulous when paired with skinny-leg jeans or a pair of leggings.”

— Brandy Rowe, owner, Love Lee’s Boutique

“Nude nails place emphasis on naturalness, which is expressed both in color choices of nail polishes and nail shapes. Short, neat, rounded or almond-shaped nails will be trendiest this fall. Also, consider selecting transparent nail polishes with a slight sheen — pale pink, milk, beige and other natural colors.”

— Kim Dang, owner and manager, Oasis Nails and Spa

“This fall [in makeup] is all about bright colors, either on the eyes or the lips, with metallic touches. Try a brown neutral smoky eye with a bold berry lip or a pop of color on the eyes with a pink lip. To balance out your choice of a bold eye or lip, you will want to play down your cheek color. Try applying a light contour from the top of your ear to the corner of your lip and blend in a peach-toned blush. Finish off your look with a sweep of highlight on your cheekbones and the inner corners of your eyes.”

— Juli Giesy, hair stylist and makeup artist, The Knot Hair and Nail Studio

“Deepen your overall hair look with a dimensional color using mulberry and violet tones. Have your colorist choose a few violet shades and alternate them throughout for an illuminating end result. Sweep your hair off your face. Style your hair with a pompadour fringe and sleek sides for a fresh fall look.”

— Joshua Marzioli, regional academy director, Toni&Guy Hairdressing Academy
