Great Fall Fashion Tips for Standing out From the Crowd This Autumn

If you are trying to stand out this autumn these fashion tips are sure to help you stay in style this season.

Over a quarter of people say that fall is their favorite season.

If you’re one of those people, you’re in luck as we’re now officially in fall. This means your skimpy sundress days are behind you and instead the winter clothing will soon be coming out. 

But, in-between times, fall provides you with the chance to get creative and fashionable. 

Who doesn’t love a sunny yet chilly day providing you with the opportunity to wear a dress, boots, and a leather jacket?

If you are trying to stand out this autumn season these fall fashion tips are sure to help you stay in style this season.

Choose Autumnal Colors 

Let everyone know it’s fall by bringing out your pieces in autumnal colors. Burnt oranges, mustard yellows, dark greens all work well for this time of year.

If you’re someone who likes to keep their wardrobe minimal, choosing these colors is a great way to develop your fall capsule wardrobe.

However, if you want to break from convention, there’s nothing stopping you from mixing it up and throwing in some pastel shades or neon yellows!

Invest in High-Quality  

At all times of the year, it’s worth investing in pieces which are of high-quality and will last a lifetime. 

You’ll stand out from the crowd if you’re wearing something which looks well made. This doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be extremely expensive.

In a world of fast fashion, it may be impossible to find cheap high-quality products. But, look in second-hand stores and online. 

To check the quality of a piece, look at the seam, the pockets, check the material and read reviews of the brand online before spending money.

Pick the Right Boot

A boot is your best friend during fall. It can be a beautiful statement piece to complete your outfit all the while keeping your feet dry! 

Autumn showers are a fact of life, but this doesn’t mean you have to look bedraggled after getting caught in the rain!

Make sure you choose a shoe which is water-resistant. This fall, animal print boots are back in fashion. Why not consider a higher boot and pair this with a dress?

Where’s Your Statement Coat?

Another essential for fall is a statement coat. Choose something which works with the rest of your wardrobe. 

A fall colored coat may be in a camel or dark red. There are many different options which work well.  

As fall turns into winter, you’ll need to switch your coat from one of elegance to one of comfort. So, make the most of these drier days to enjoy a chic outfit!

Pull Out a Blazer

A blazer is a classic look for the fall. You can pair it with jeans for a dressed-down look or with a matching skirt for a smart business outfit. 

Your blazer should be tailored if you want to stand out from the crowd. Having a jacket which fits will look better and make any outfit look more expensive.

Add an extra little element to your blazer by sewing on elbow patches. This look is interesting and cool. Not sure how to do this? Learn how to sew a patch, here.

Black Turtlenecks Are Back

The black turtleneck has made a comeback! No longer will you have to sit at your desk with a chilly neck as this item will keep you warm. 

You may choose a variety of different colored turtlenecks which can be matched to a range of different outfits. 

Pair a black turtleneck with tweed trousers and a chic winter coat for the ultimate fall wardrobe look! 

Monochrome Is Chic

Are you looking for a simple outfit you can pull on in the morning that still looks chic? Monochrome is the answer. 

Why not wear a white turtleneck with beige trousers? Or, how about wearing a black jumper with black trousers?

In order to look great while wearing monochrome, try wearing a lighter hue on top. This is flattering for most people. 

When you’ve put your monochrome look together, pair it with your fall boots, and you’re ready to go! 

A Scarf Is a Staple

It’s getting dark earlier and the temperature is dropping. You may be wearing the cutest outfit, but it certainly won’t look sophisticated if you’re shivering!

Pair your coat with a scarf. Choose something which works with the rest of your wardrobe. 

Before you go out and spend money, why not look at one of the many scarves you likely already own?

If you have something in a plain color, this should work well. Stick with dark colors, such as black, which work with everything! Remember, the big, chunky scarf is still very much in fashion.

Match your scarf to your gloves. Choose a color which works and will keep you looking classy as you roll up in your coordinated outfits.

Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize

Tie your entire wardrobe together with the right accessories. This could be a simple necklace, a tasteful pair of earrings, or something bolder and out there. 

You can choose. But, consider the implication of buying new jewelry. Why not buy pieces which are fair trade and doing some good for the world?

Nowadays, there are hundreds of brands which are doing right by the planet! You may consider checking Etsy to see homemade wares too.

Fall Fashion Tips Are Countless!

If you’re trying to build your wardrobe, don’t simply rush out and buy hundreds of fall fashion items. That’s one of the most important fall fashion tips!

You should be building your wardrobe slowly but surely over time to ensure that every piece will stand the test of time. Don’t be afraid to take something back to the shop if it’s simply not right for you!

Bane Haunted House, Halloween, Scariest Haunted Houses in NYC, NYC, 360 MAGAZINE, Vaughn Lowery

BANE HAUNTED HOUSE

By Vaughn Lowery

Face your fears head on. Bane Haunted House holds no prisoners. Dark and carnivorous entities grab, push and scream at you. It’s like being in an insane asylum pumped with a ton of MEDs while trying to sail through a tormented maze. Every step of this 3-level 40,000 square foot former nightclub (Pacha NYC) will have you literally shitting in your pants or better yet pleading, “Mercy!”

Some of our team members couldn’t keep themselves together long enough to make it through while others managed to make it out alive. Many were unscathed, but be prepared to get soiled as you will have to crawl, kneel and push through some obstructions. You may even be spun around a few times – a sneakerhead’s nightmare. Moreover, we’ve been to some relatively challenging ‘horror nights’ like Universal Studios but this will have you piss in your pants while sweating your balls off. Of course, some tours of the house can be with 2 or 3 people; however, on our journey it was barely one per party.

In short, even if you’ve ever skydived out of a plane at 10,000 feet in South Africa and/or zip lined in Costa Rica at 1000 feet above ground while travelling 35 to 55mph, this meticulously designed space will still frighten the bejesus out of you. Last year Bane Haunted House had approximately 30,000 people attend while they were nestled in their New Jersey location. This year they expect door attendance to double with their newly appointed West Side Highway position.

Anyone whom has binge watched Jason and Freddy should drop by. No excuses.

DJ Snake ft. Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B

The official video for “Taki Taki” by DJ Snake featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, directed by Colin Tilley, is out now. A sneak peak of the video first aired tonight in a commercial spot in partnership with YouTube Music during the American Music Awards.

Watch the video HERE.

Currently the most-streamed song in the world on Spotify for a week straight now, “Taki Taki” marks the second global number one record for the French DJ/producer (his first being “Lean On” ft. , his 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer), and a first number one for Selena Gomez, Ozuna, and Cardi B, who is the first female rapper to top the chart.

In addition, “Taki Taki” has peaked as the #2 song in the world on iTunes, and reached #1 on iTunes in 25 countries. Meanwhile, it’s also peaked as the #1 trending video on YouTube in the U.S.

The worldwide smash success of “Taki Taki” was boosted by Spotify’s recent launch of Global X — a new playlist full of rhythmic crossover hits from cultures around the world. Spotify accompanied the playlist’s launch with a unique vertical video for the bilingual, Latin-music-infused “Taki Taki,” which the platform hails as “a true mix of cultures.”

DJ Snake’s 2016 hit “Let Me Love You” ft. Justin Bieber reached a billion streams on Spotify. That achievement makes him only the fifth artist in Spotify history (along with Drake, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, and The Chainsmokers) to have two songs earn a billion streams each on the platform. DJ Snake first hit the billion-stream mark with “Lean On” ft. MØ, his 2015 collaboration with Major Lazer.

Having toured the world this summer, DJ Snake will return to the U.S. this fall for two very special shows. This Halloween season, the world-class producer will headline sold-out dates at New York City’s Avant Gardner (on October 26) and L.A.’s legendary Shrine (on October 31).

With its worldly rhythms and infectious energy, “Taki Taki” continues DJ Snake’s track record of global hits, from “Turn Down for What” to “Let Me Love You” to the club record of the summer: his India-inspired “Magenta Riddim. “Taki Taki” arrives ahead of DJ Snake’s forthcoming album, which is set to drop soon.

Between its dark haunting melody, and the low raspy voice of rap newcomer, Spiffy Wilds… this track is pure hip-hop.

The visual for “Glizzy”–which dropped today, just in time for Halloween–is just as gritty; featuring dimly lit rooms, tight spaces and women with heavily painted faces. It’s an experience that will assure you that Spiffy Wilds is here to make a statement. Produced by Ouu Taylor Made, the video was shot and directed by MEENO.

About Spiffy Wilds

Minneapolis, Minnesota has yet to deliver a millennial MC who has the potential to reach the masses, but that could soon change with the emergence of rapper, Spiffy Wilds. His recent project This Time Last Year, features GRAMMY winning producer, Zaytoven (Gucci Mane/Migos) along with DB Tha Rasta and Jaybee.

Les Twins “Dress to be Free”

This Halloween, Bacardí challenges partygoers to DRESS TO BE FREE with a new campaign aimed at liberating our truest selves in honor of the holiday that celebrates self-expression. BACARDÍ is honing in on the spirit of Halloween as the intersection of a world of people who dress up to be themselves every day and those who liberate themselves through creative expression. This year, BACARDÍ celebrates these individuals, and are excited to share exclusive content with the Parisian dance duo – Les Twins – brothers who at their core represent what Dress to Be Free is all about: authenticity, truth, and celebration.

Identical twin brothers, choreographers and models, Laurent and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois, are recognized internationally for their talents in new style hip-hop dancing, and have been featured with various music artists including Beyoncé, Meghan Trainor, and Missy Elliott.  Just as BACARDÍ challenges convention and champions liberation, Les Twins are transforming dance culture using movement and their style to transcend the expected, redefine and disrupt a category.  They are moving past the notions of what constitutes “real hip-hop,” integrating the happenings of everyday life to celebrate their true selves.

BACARDÍ, Les Twins, and Cardi B will be attending a #DRESSTOBEFREE Halloween Bash on October 30th at House of Yes in New York City.
