1. Dare to Go There: That was the theme of the November issue which was evident before even flipping through the pages. When I got it in the mail I was obsessed with the cover. Most of the classic magazines (Elle, Vogue, Glamour, etc) feature a close up of a celebrity against a pretty, simple background. This cover featured Nicole Kidman in front of a colorful monster truck; not your typical fashion magazine cover, but it works so well for this issue!
2. Denim on Denim: Denim is everywhere from jeans to tops, even dresses. Don’t be afraid to mix and match; try a dark skinny jean with a light denim button up shirt, brown leather boots and a statement watch for a chic fall look.
3. I love Vera Wang: One of my favorite articles of Bazaar is “Designer’s life by the Numbers”. Each issue features a short article about the day in the life of a specific designer and fun facts about them. When Vera Wang was talking about what she usually wears to work she said, “Like most designers, I have a uniform, and mine is a legging… Then I throw on a T-shirt.” I am a huge fan of leggings and T-shirts so the fact that one of the top designers thinks that it is a socially acceptable look makes me feel better. These leggings from her Kohl’s line are actually some of my favorite.
4. Black and White is Always Classy: As Coco Chanel once said, “A girl should be two things, classy and fabulous.” This issue was filled with tons of different ways to wear black & white, from color-blocking to stripes you can never go wrong. Want to stand out from the crowd? Try throwing in a pop of gold or red to spice up the mix.
