H&M:3 WAYS TO WEAR HOUNDSTOOTH

SPORTY, YET ELEGANT
The fastest way to dress down the classic houndstooth pattern is by adding a sporty vibe. Matching a crisp white windbreaker set with a houndstooth-print roll-neck top transforms the ladylike pattern from elegant to cool. Partner with grungy boots in black and white.
SWEATER WEATHER
Let’s ditch the classic, feminine way of wearing houndstooth and style it in a masculine, modern and maximalist way instead. How? By working with layers and mixing different houndstooth patterns. Complete the look with a pair of chunky sneakers.
BORROW FROM THE BOYS
The boyfriend blazer has been big in trend the last seasons, and this fall we steal our pants from the boys as well. And since brown is the new black, this oversized houndstooth two-piece, paired with a splash of retro orange, is the perfect outfit for the fashion girl this season. Are three trends not enough for you? Add some hair clips for an even more modern look.

ASOS:STYLE LESSONS FROM THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is our new Netflix obsession. OK, at first we were shook by how scary it is in comparison to the original 90s version. But then we quickly fell in love with the show’s sinister storyline, intriguing characters, underlying social messages and – of course – its bewitching style. From headbands to gothic lace, ‘Brina and her crew serve up some serious <span class=”woR”>fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers.</span> inspo for our winter repertoire. Here are five key trends that will bring the magic to your look, stat.
Hairbands are our new hero
TBF, Sabrina’s hairband should have its own shoutout in the show’s credits as one of the main characters. Whether she’s hanging with her human friends or battling the Weird Sisters at the Academy of the Unseen Arts, her headband is ever-present. If your outfit is giving you more trouble than Batibat the sleep demon, this is one <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> that magically pulls it all together. Plus, it gets extra points for banishing a bad hair day, too.
Lace summons the drama
There are lots of lace looks throughout the show to help bring the gothic realness. Our fave is when Sabrina wears her mother’s wedding <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> to her friend’s Halloween party (and her dark baptism, which she pops to afterwards – as you do). Even though Halloween is over, we might just cast a spell with a similar style at one of our party-season soirees.
A slinky slip dress casts a spell
Although the new version of Sabrina has none of the lols of the Melissa Joan Hart version, it does have some nice 90s fashion moments, like the old show. Take the slip dress ’Brina magically changes into at her dark baptism. While the scene had us on the edge of our seats, we must admit the oh-so-pretty frock did distract us for a sec. We smell another scarily good party option. Make like this street styler and pair it with cosy shearling to beat the chill.
A red coat makes everything better
The show is dark AF – both in its creepy storyline and overall colour scheme. But throughout, Sabrina’s ’fits manage to brighten things up with some fresh autumnal hues. In particular, her red coat cheers up even the most dreary of scenes, giving us a lesson in how outerwear can enliven our cold-weather lives. We’ll be throwing a cosy scarlet number over everything this season for a frightfully good look.
Hot under the collar
We must confess, the Weird Sisters are our new style icons. Yes, their ‘harrowing’ of Sabrina is pretty evil – but they look so good while they’re doing it. As well as dark lips and up-dos, the evil trio have reintroduced us to the power of the Peter Pan collar – and we’re not sure what we were doing without it. Wear a collar bib under jumpers and dresses already in your wardrobe and, hey presto: a tired looks gets transformed. Magic indeed.

MISSGUIDED:the december glossary – trends you need on your radar this month

All restraint is now out of the window. The tree is up, we have our festive jumpers on 24/7, we’re eating chocolate for breakfast, and our boss has had to ask us to remove our flashing tinsel earrings on more than one occasion (they’re definitely workwear appropriate, right?). Merry December, babe, <span class=”woR”>Christmas</span><span class=”woD”>Christmas or Christmas Day (Old English: Crīstesm?sse, meaning “Christ’s Mass”) is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ,[7][8] observed most commonly on December 25[4][9][10] as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world.</span> has arrived. To get your party season <span class=”woR”>style</span><span class=”woD”>Style is a manner of doing or presenting things, especially a fashionable one.</span> on lockdown, we’ve collected some style inspo from our fave #babesofmissguided, to give you some major outfit goals. Here are the top 5 trends to be seen in, check them out below:
Satin
Satin has been a key fabric for all of 2018, and it isn’t going anywhere as we move into autumn. The possibilities are endless with satin. Up your workwear style with a satin shirt and tailored suit combo, to show your office who’s the ultimate girl-boss. Or, if you’re after a more smart-casual vibe, why not throw on a loose satin shirt over jeans for the perfect in between. Got a big night out to go to? Satin can sort you out for that too! Try a satin dress with barely-there heels to look like you’ve got your life together even when you’re on the dancefloor at 3am.
Sequins
If you don’t own something sequinned then you need to catch up babe, because this is THE style to be seen in this Christmas. This look is all about everything from attention-grabbing embellished pieces to more subtle, classy co-ords. Wear a gorgeous sequinned jumpsuit, with barely-there makeup and barely-there shoes. Go plain with the rest of your <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> to let the sparkle do the talking. As party season marches on, sequins and metallics are easy statement styles that you’ll be seeing more and more. Turn heads in a fringed, sequin co-ord, for a classic, eye-catching look.
Velvet
Does anything scream luxury like velvet? Invest in that luxe look for less with a velvet playsuit. Drape blazer styles give that “I’ll meet you in the billiard’s room” feel, so wear over a lacy bodysuit to vamp the look up to next level fire. The matching trousers finish off the outfit to perfection, leaving you looking head to toe woah. Want to free the leg? Velvet slip dresses are IN this party season. Wear yours with barely-theres and a matte lip. Or, a velvet blazer playsuit gives a smart but sexy impression that’s sure to turn some heads on your next night out. Feeling expensive but still having money left in your purse for shots? Yasss.
Red
Klaxon alert… There are 3 weeks ’til Christmas (not that we’re counting). That means that party season has officially begun. Take inspo from the most unlikely fashion icon ever, and make sure you’re repping Santa Claus’ favourite hue because if there’s one colour you should definitely be wearing RN it’s red. An LRD (that’s Little Red Dress, FYI) always looks AMAZE on a night out. Slick on a matching red lip to really turn up the heat. Or, go for a more subtle approach and wear a red bodysuit or top with your fave pair of jeans for ultimate cool-girl vibes.
Faux Fur
If you’re all about the outerwear this season (and who isn’t? it is f*cking freezing after all…), then you should definitely add a faux fur coat to your ‘drobe. Faux fur is probably the biggest statement you can make with your outerwear, and it’s sure to look amazing with pretty much anything you throw at it. Black and brown styles are toned-down enough for even the most casual day-time affair. Or, if you’re off out-out this winter, finish off your party dress or statement co-ord with a fab longline faux fur coat. Plus it’ll keep you super warm… Bonus.

ASOS:HOW ASOSERS STYLE PIECES FROM THE MAG

When looking for style inspo, ASOS magazine is one of our first port of calls. Every three months it brings you key pieces for the season ahead, plus the freshest ways to wear them. Of course, it’s always fun to adapt the trends to suit your own personal vibe. That’s what our ASOSers do and here’s how they’re remaking the ‘fits from the Party 18 issue in their own way.
Getting on board with the futuristic trend, Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne wore these space-age <span class=”woR”>trousers</span><span class=”woD”>Trousers (pants in North America and Australia) are an item of clothing worn from the waist to the ankles, covering both legs separately (rather than with cloth extending across both legs as in robes, skirts, and dresses). In the UK the word “pants” generally means underwear and not trousers.[1] Shorts are similar to trousers, but with legs that come down only to around the area of the knee, higher or lower depending on the style of the garment. To distinguish them from shorts, trousers may be called “long trousers” in certain contexts such as school uniform, where tailored shorts may be called “short trousers”, especially in the UK.</span> with a simple white tank top for our cover shoot. It’s not always feasible to flaunt your abs in a crop top (espesh in winter) – but Cultural Marketing Coordinator Bethany shows us how you can wear these trews IRL. A hoodie, chunky trainers and Adidas <span class=”woR”>socks</span><span class=”woD”>A sock is an item of clothing worn on the feet and often covering the ankle and some part of the calf. Some type of shoe or boot is typically worn over socks.</span> give them a sporty spin that works for the weekend. Into it.
checks are huge this season and Jesy little-mixed (lol) a check body with a clashing <span class=”woR”>shirt</span><span class=”woD”>A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body.</span> for her shoot. The result is one of those shouldn’t-work-but-totally-does looks. For those who prefer a matchy-matchy style, you can get trousers in the same print for a cute co-ord vibe. Video Creative Nierodha pairs hers with a cropped bomber jacket and platform boots. If there was a fifth member of Little Mix, Nierodha could be her.
Jade’s look gives us major inspo for party season – obviously the coat is ah-maz-ing but the cute silver clips and earrings are also v pleasing. Picking out the fluffy pink coat, Social Coordinator Georgia is serving a laid-back look with her Converse and jumpsuit. This one can be adapted for after-work events, too – just add heels.

ASOS: AUTUMN OUTERWEAR GETS PLAID

Even if you’re a hot-weather hun and mostly live for sandy toes and ice creams, there’s something kinda glorious about this in-betweeny autumn weather. Firstly because you’d be hard pressed to find a more healthy and cost-effective pastime than kicking your way through heaps of red leaves in the park. Secondly because the season’s layerable treasures breathe a whole new lease of life into your silky <span class=”woR”>summer</span><span class=”woD”>Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice.

Take this dreamy combo snapped at London Fashion Week last month. A nightgown-style maxi dress feels right at home in the new season thanks to the addition of a very cosy tartan <span class=”woR”>jacket</span><span class=”woD”>A jacket is a mid stomach length garment for the upper body. A jacket typically has sleeves, and fastens in the front or slightly on the side. A jacket is generally lighter, tighter-fitting, and less insulating than a coat, which is outerwear. Some jackets are fashionable, while others serve as protective clothing.</span>. Keeping the rest of the accessories very much AW, the matching brown leather clutch, punky belt and western-style shoe situation pulls it all together nicely.

Fancy trying it out? Too right, you absolutely should. Bring your favourite slinky separates – be it a midi skirt or culottes – right into autumn with you by engaging those two clever styling tricks. First up is your outerwear – jacket, jumper or coat, just make it plaid. And second of all the <span class=”woR”>accessories</span><span class=”woD”>A fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look.</span> – keep them matching in print (tartan) or in punkiness (chunky boots) and you’re onto a winner.

FP Escapes in Malibu: Honey Hi’s 5 Principles of Eating Well–Freepeople

Honey Hi was founded by Caitlin Sullivan and Kacie Carter who, at their Echo Park cafe, serve crave-able, sustainable comfort foodFood is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for an organism.It is usually of plant or animal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism and assimilated by the organism’s cells to provide energy, maintain life, or stimulate growth. in the form of bowls, tartines, smoothies and much more. Uncompromising in its nutritional integrity and sustainability, their menu is informed not only by collaborations with local organic farmers, artisans, and community members — but also by chef/co-owner Kacie, a nutritionist who ensures that each dish is delicious and deeply nourishing. We couldn’t be more excited for them to curate the menu for our upcoming Escape – in the meantime, take heed of their 5 guidelines for better eating below.

Fill 80% of your plate with vegetables.
They can be cooked, raw, blended, fermented – whatever! All ways all the time. Support your local farmers and farmers markets when you can because their foods tend to be more nutrient dense and flavorful. They provide incredible varieties and amounts of antioxidants, polyphenols, fiber, and anti-inflammatory compounds. No matter your dietary philosophy, a majority of your diet should be made up of fresh vegetables.

Focus more ‘how’ rather than ‘what’.
Pay attention to where your ingredientAn ingredient is a substance that forms part of a mixture (in a general sense). For example, in cooking, recipes specify which ingredients are used to prepare a specific dish.
are coming from. How your food is sourced and prepared often has a bigger impact on your health than what exactly you’re including in your diet. For example, dairy that is factory farm produced and full of hormones and antibiotics is very different from dairy that is grass fed, organic and fermented.

Eat fresh foods that expire.
Shop the periphery of the grocery store, not the inside where the packaged food lives. Try not to eat things with ingredients you don’t recognize or from sources you can’t trace (this is true especially when it comes to protein, meat, fish). Make sure the animal products you consume are responsibly sourced—grass-fed, organic and local whenever possible. Avoid added sugars, refined foods and things that don’t come directly from the earth.

Avoid getting hung up on dogma, guilt and judgment.
The only thing that matters is you feel good and energetic after you eat, both immediately and in the long run. Don’t get caught up in the latest food fads and trendA trend is the latest style of popular culture including but not limited to: clothing, music, vernacular (common speech), and the latest tv shows. This form of culture is usually expressed by preps and other kids trying desperately to be accepted by peers despite obvious outcastment.. They can be incredibly limiting and don’t take into consideration everyone’s specific biology. You have to focus what works best for your body and psychology.

Keep it simple.
You really don’t need to cook a giant chef-worthy feast for every meal. A quick sauté of different colored vegetables in coconut oil or a pack of smoked salmon with torn dill, some greens, a few olives, and a little bit of avocado will do the trick most nights of the week.

As a guest on our latest Escape, you can choose to either attend a dinner curated from the farm at the Malibu Fig Tree Ranch, or stay the weekend at Malibu’s Native Hotel. The proceeds from both packages will be donated to Girls Inc., a non-profit organization that provides a safe third space outside of home and school for girls in inner city communities. This is Free People’s third year supporting Girls Inc. through community programming, advocacy, and financial donations, with proceeds from this particular Escape funding the girls’ nutritional and wellness programming.

Back In Black: The Master Detoxifier, Charcoal–Freepeople

If you missed the boat on trying out last year’s most-talked-about ingredientAn ingredient is a substance that forms part of a mixture (in a general sense). For example, in cooking, recipes specify which ingredients are used to prepare a specific dish., fear not!

Now is as good a time as ever to dip your toe — or whole body, really — into the charcoal pond.

For a full rundown on the stuff, read this. For the TL;DR (Too Long; Didn’t Read) version, here’s what you need to know before you decide what charcoal-laced product you want to add to your repertoire: the activated charcoal found in self-care products is made from natural substances like bambooThe bamboos /bæmˈbuː/ (About this sound listen) are evergreen perennial flowering plants in the subfamily Bambusoideae of the grass family Poaceae., wood or coconut shells that result in a super porous material that attracts and binds to toxins before excavating itself from your body, taking the bad stuff with it. It’s a master detoxifier and deep cleaner, meaning nearly any part of your body can benefit from it.

As a body wash ingredient, charcoal works to extract pollutants from your skin — your body’s largest organ, and also a highly porous one. I bet you didn’t even realize you needed to detox any skinSkin is the soft outer tissue covering vertebrates. other than the stuff on your face, but add an ebony-hued soap like LINNÉ’s Activate Body Wash to your shower and you’ll give your body a leg up on the whole ridding-itself-of-toxins thing.

Speaking of skin, charcoal can work wonders on your face as well, thanks to its ability to reach deep down into pores and attract gunk and pollutants in hiding. Since charcoal is fairly gentle, it’s a great universal option for all skin types. But if you’re worried about the possibility of it drying you out, look for a charcoal mask that also packs a serious punch of moisture, like the Activated Charcoal Hydration Face Mask from Arlo Blak, to purify and hydrate.

Working our way down the body a bit, we find ourselves at the armpit, most wondrous and mysterious of places. If you’ve dabbled in the natural deodorant game, you know that the transition can be, well, rough. Your body needs time to adjust and purge itself of the chemicals in the conventional stuff you’ve been using for years before it can wholly embrace natural deodorant. If you want to speed up the process and prime your pits for the good stuff, consider armpit masking with the Underarm Detox Mask from Lavanila. Thanks to the activated charcoal in the mask, aluminum and impurities are easier drawn out of the skin, thereby shortening and easing your natural deodorant transition.

Not ready to paint your pits with the stuff? Consider it for your mouth as a healthier, albeit creepier-looking alternative to conventional tooth whitening products. Not only does charcoal toothpaste work to naturally remove surface stains from your teeth without any of the nasty hormone-disrupting, skin-irritating chemicals you’ll find in a standard tube, it’s also anti-bacterial and anti-fungal for the sake of your gums and oral health. I promise that once you get over the shock of a midnight-hued maw, you’ll dazzle at your pearly whites.

How To Wear Neutrals: The Most Versatile Of Wardrobe Staples–stitfix

Typically, when we think of neutrals, we think black, white, brown, taupe, olive, navy, and gray. “Boring!” might also be something that comes to mind. But these muted beauties are anything but, especially when paired with bright, bold patterns, tactile textures, and sophisticated accessoriesA fashion accessory is an item used to contribute, in a secondary manner, to the wearer’s outfit, often used to complete an outfit and chosen to specifically complement the wearer’s look..

BRING OUT YOUR INNER ANIMAL
Animal prints are essentially a neutral pattern, but they can also be used to add uniqueness and interest to an otherwise tame look. Start with pieces that are in the same colorColor (American English) or colour (Commonwealth English) is the characteristic of human visual perception described through color categories, with names such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple. family but are made of varying textiles like stone-washed denim and pebbled leather. Then, just add a plush velvet mule, and tie the look together with a leopard-print top.

COORDINATE COLORS
If you think neutral means you have to forego color, think again. The trick is to pair colors that complement each other, such as brown and orange or gray and violet. We think camo partners nicely with neutrals as well, especially in the once-military-only olive/khaki combo. Add stylish leather kicks and a versatile beige backpack and you’re head-to-toe ready to go.

ADD FLOWER POWER
We love getting–and wearing–flowers. Who doesn’t?! But how to work them into your wardrobe? We suggest letting the floral pattern be the star and grounding it with shoes in a neutral earthy hue. Top a pair of wide-leg pants with a chambray shirt in a color pulled fresh from the garden palettesThe cosmetic palettes are archaeological artefacts, originally used in predynastic Egypt to grind and apply ingredients for facial or body cosmetics..

EMBRACE EARTH TONES
From muted moss to faded blue, soft sand to burnt orange, earth tones hit the smart-casual sweet spot, making them the perfect go-to for everything from date night to Sunday brunch. This all-occasion palette works well year-round, too.

TURN IT UP OR TONE IT DOWN
Not only are they elegant on their own, but neutrals are an easy way to make other colors or patterns pop. On the other hand, if you want to downplay bold, bright pieces that may be too loud on their own, neutrals in dark shades, such as midnight black, chocolate brown or olive–can do the trick.
