Fall Style 4 Ways

It’s about that time of year, Tappers: the hustle and bustle of the holidays is upon us – and since there’s no escaping it, why not dive head-first into the season with some serious style?

Holiday gift shopping is best achieved using the 1-for-1 method… meaning 1-for-you and 1-for-me. To help you achieve this most ideal equilibrium, we’re giving away $75 gift cards to Hollister! How can you get in on this shopping spree? Snap a pic of your fall style & upload it to our Fall Fashion Contest.

But first, a little inspiration from a few of our favorite fashionistas on the word wide web:

 1. The San Diego Minimalist – @OliviaFaith_

Screen Shot 2014-11-14 at 2.19.51 PM


Olivia Faith, a University of California student and cookie enthusiast, styles her photos against stark, simple backgrounds that allow her signature style to pop. In this shoot, she shopped the Abercrombie & Fitch holiday line for moody florals, dark plaids, and whimsical  accessories. Seriously, does anyone else suddenly feel daring enough to try the socks with sandals look stat? 


2. The New York City Songstress – Dress like Jess

Screen Shot 2014-11-14 at 2.35.59 PMJessica Lemos also snagged her easy city-girl style from the racks at Abercrombie & Fitch. Here, she rocks a vegan leather jacket over a cozy marled sweater paired with a hint of punk rock plaid. We love how she takes advantage of New York’s changing foliage to compliment her cool fall look. 

3.  The Nocturnal Optimist – Tilden at TobeBright

Also shopping the A&F holiday collection, Tilden picked out many of the same pieces as Jessica. But, where Jessica’s style is cozy and casual, Tilden creates an edgy look by pairing the ensemble with spiky heals, a statement tee, and tough, trucker hat. In choosing to set her picture on a beautiful country road, Tilden adds depth to her photos and puts her outfit front-and-center in the foreground. 

4. The California Dreamer  – Esmirana at Platforms for Breakfast

As the mercury edges downward over here on the East Coast, we can’t help but envy that perfect California weather – Esmirina’s faux fur coat & mini dress pairing has us seriously considering a cross-country move! Also, the orange, sepia-tinged lighting in Esmirina’s first shot as well as the palm trees in the background of the second evoke a sense of old Hollywood glamour. Lana del Rey, anyone?

I like NYC Songstress the best. Her outfit is just so perfectly NY. Even though her clothes are carefully picked out, she put them together in such a way that looks like she put no effort into getting dressed at all. This look could go from a grunge bar to a trendy restaurant to a museum with ease.
