 Sara R.’s drawings
 channel the latest in
 fashion and beauty trends.
 Sara’s inspiration: “I’ve always been
 interested in the illustrations that are in
 magazines, and I find big cities very in-
 spiring—the mix of cultures and people
 in places like NYC and Chicago always
 leave me wanting to sit down and chan-
 nel my inspiration into something wear-
 able.” Here, she pairs her favorite new
 trends with her knack for drawing them.
 “Wearing a cardigan over your top can
 make your wardrobe easily transition
 from summer to fall.” The second look
 plays into the menswear trend, and the
 third one, of course, is colored tights.

     It’s the best of the British for back-to-school when boarding school blazers and lady-like
     cropped jackets meet punk rock’s serious edge. Try doubling-up a studded leather belt
     over your favorite worn in T-shirt and top it with a well-structured jacket. Accessorize
     with silver bracelets or black leather cuffs, a bright colorful bag, and some high-top
     sneakers. Anything with buckles, zippers, or skulls passes the test, but instead of standard
     jeans, switch it up with skinny black or plaid pants. Makeup should be a little rebellious:
     try a swipe of Dior’s liquid Style Liner in Silver Light.

Getting up for English class on
Monday morning is extra easy
as the Granny Chic look enjoys
a revival of sorts. As you read
about Miss Havisham from
Great Expectations you can
dress like her too, with lots of
layers and skirts that fall below
the knee. The look is a little      AT
bit grandma’s attic, a little bit
tea time, and a lot of comfort.
Mix-and-match florals, animal
prints, stripes, and plaids under
long sweaters with faux-fur
trim. Tips to look cool and not
crazy cat lady: keep all of your
layers in the same color family,
give your sweater some shape
by adding a skinny belt, and try
adding a pair of chunky Oxford
heels to look instantly polished.
Makeup with this look should
be trendy, not tired—try a bold
red lipstick, such as Dior’s
Rouge Dior in Celebrity Red.



                     No worries about warmth this win-
                     ter! The hottest clothes are inspired
                     by the coldest weather with ma-
                     terials like flannel, shearling, and
                     cashmere showing up all over the
                     runway. Lumberjacks and fashion
                     addicts alike can stay toasty with
                     parkas, puffy jackets, trapper hats
                     and classic long johns. The dif-
                     ference between the woods and
                     the city, however, is the addition
                     of high heels and trim-fitting vests
                     and blazers. High-waisted, wide-
                     leg pants and thin school-boy ties
                     are also more classroom and less
                     camping ground. Makeup for this
                     look is inspired by tomboys, so be
                     sure to have thick, girlie lashes that
                     can handle any type of weather.
                     Try a waterproof mascara that
                     lengthens and curls, like Diorshow
                     Waterproof Mascara in Black.


     The new Bohemian look is reminiscent
     of a dreamy girl in her boyfriend’s jack-
     et. All of your flirty, floral dresses from
     spring can stick around for fall if you
     pair them wisely with leather, bomber,
     or cargo jackets, and military flair such
     as brass buttons and stand-up collars.
     To make a lightweight dress work for
     colder weather, add heavier acces-
     sories: lots of gold, bronze, and topaz
     jewelry inspired by Indian royalty. A
     gauzy scarf, a low-slung skinny belt,
     and an over-sized leather bag are must-
     haves for this artsy look. Keep makeup
     natural but dewy with a product like
