Best Halloween Costume Ideas 2016

With Halloween right around the corner, it’s time to get our costume ideas brewing! I still have no idea what I’m going to be, but after compiling my list below, I now have a few thoughts running through my head. Some of these are just spot on amazing…and some just made me smile!

{Luxe OOTD} Off-the-Shoulder Trend


I love cities that appreciate local artists enough to commission giant murals all over their buildings. I walked all over the Neon District of Norfolk to find some of these fantastic treasures that were just as good (if not better?!) as exploring a museum.

I wore a trend that was shown on both Fall 16 and Spring 17 runways: the off-the-shoulder look. This one had half bell sleeves, which I thought was a playful little touch.

{Red Carpet Style} Zoe Saldana Shimmers at Two x Two AIDS Benefit

Movie star Zoe Saldana was all aglow at the Two x Two AID benefit in Dallas, Texas the other night, wearing a glittering low cut belted gown from Elie Saab’s Spring 2017 collection. On the runway, she skirt showed a high slit, and gorgeous sheer pleats (and those sunglasses – aahhhh!!). I am in love with this dress, and Zoe Saldana absolutely rocked it.

{Luxe Look for Less} Hailey Baldwin in Velvet Sock Boots

I just can’t help myself – I’m loving this trend everywhere I’m seeing it. The latest celeb to wear the look was Hailey Baldwin, with these rose-wine velvet chunky heel boots, a cream sweatshirt, and skinny cropped denim. So of course I had to cover how to get her luxe look for less, plus how to get it for a total steal.

{Celeb Style} Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Black on Black

Rosie HW has been on my hot list lately, and yesterday she made the list again for her layered black on black outfit with high waist lace up pants and a squared shoulder biker jacket over a denim jacket that barely peeps out. It’s a “simple black look” but she seriously looks fantastic here because of all the little details that create a great layered texture on her statuesque silhouette.

{Bridal Fashion Week Fall 17} Temperley London

Temperley London went for it this time with a Fall 2017 collection full of bohemian fantasy, modern romance and even some pops of color.

I have so much love for the Temperley London looks – they’re always light as air ethereal, but so creative in the way they are infused with glamour and bling like a racer back embroidered with crystals, a floating hand-beaded shoulder, intricate sheer lace panels…it’s all so luxe, but so light.

{Celeb Style} Gigi Hadid in Luxe Silk Maxi

While out shopping yesterday, Gigi Hadid was spotted wearing this uber-luxe silk sateen high-waist maxi that she paired with a basic tee that tied up to one side. And oh, those a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll low top stud ankle boots. You’re going to either love ’em or hate ’em. And the rocker in me is definitely saying love.

{Celeb Style} Hilary Duff Shows Off Booty in Ripped Boyfriend Jeans

Hilary Duff recently made her relationship with her trainer, Jason Walsh Instagram official, so why not show off his work? The other day, Hilary was out and about in LA wearing ripped boyfriend jeans and an adorable cold shoulder sweater with a pair of suede pumps. Hilary’s been stepping up her style game lately, and I think she looks really cute here!

{Celeb Style} Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Goes Retro

The 70’s Jagger look is a favorite with a few designers right now – Cavalli, Saint Laurent, and Dsquared2 among others. And Rosie Huntington-Whiteley just showed us how to put one of these perfect-for-Fall looks together in a flawless way. I am loving the plaid-lined duster coat with pink silk lapels – the dusty grey tone is gorgeous, and I love that it’s not being overrun by florals everywhere. And fringe on a thin scarf adds just enough rock and roll to make anyone’s swagger a little more Jagger.
