The Arm Party : a term for an incredible collaboration of bracelets and bangles, the “arm party” was coined by fashion blogger The Man Repeller with the following motto—the more the merrier/.

Asymmetrical skirt: popping up all summer, the asymmetrical skirt gave a breezy alternative to maxi dresses and mini skirts—now, you can have both. Dressed up in heels and dressed down in flats, this look will continue through fall with tights.

Au naturale makeup: less is more when it comes to makeup trends. That electric blue eyeliner might be screaming your name, but every now and then try a look that goes back to your natural roots. A couple brushes of mascara, tinted lips and clear skin can go a long way.
