Trend Thursday: Chic Buns

There is nothing better than tying up day-old hair into a chic bun! Especially in the cooler months, buns become an easy staple that won’t get caught in your scarf or windblown (if you use the right amount of hairspray). From topknots to chignons, we’ve included a few of our favorite buns below! If you can’t decide what type of bun would look best with your hair, start a Hunt! 

How To Wear The #Oversized Trend

We love the slightly slouchy fit of the #oversized trend we’re seeing all over The Hunt lately!

Not only is this the most comfortable trend ever, it’s totally edgy which we love.

This can be a tricky trend to master. There’s a fine line between “I woke up like this” and “I need more beauty sleep.” 

Here are our tips on rocking an oversized look:

  1. Choose one oversized piece and have the rest of your outfit be form-fitting or cropped. Go with either Boyfriend Jeans, an oversized blazer or a big white t-shirt, not all at once.
  2. Pair with girly pieces to dress it up. Wear Boyfriend Jeans with heels, or a big jacket with a floral dress.
  3. Drape oversized outerwear over your shoulders for a seriously fashion-editor-style look.
  4. Belt it. Give some shape to your look by belting a large shirtdress or even try a belt over a blazer.

Style Snapshot: Meet Melody of Snappy Style

Meet Melody of Snappy Style! She’s a fashion writer and professional stylist in LA. We got the chance to chat with her about her career and favorite trends on The Hunt and we even got her to share a few of her styling tips and tricks just for you, Gems ;) Keep reading to learn more about Melody!

Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your career as a professional stylist

A: I’m equally a fashion writer and a stylist. I worked as a fashion blogger/associate editor for POPSUGAR Fashion (formerly known as Fabsugar) for over six year years and simultaneously started Snappy Style in 2009 as a side project to help friends and family find outfits for upcoming events. When I left POPSUGAR in 2013, I decided to take Snappy Style to the next level by starting a website and expanding beyond my network. 

Q: What’s your favorite thing about being a stylist?

A: I have two. The first thing I love about being a stylist is working with real people to help them achieve their style goals and then seeing how excited they get when they leave with clothes that make them look and most importantly feel beautiful. It’s like fashion therapy! 

image

Q: What are 5 essential pieces every woman needs in her closet?

A: Every woman needs a polished black blazer, a striped tank/tee that never goes out of style, a pair of good jeans that flatters her figure, delicate jewelry for everyday wear, and shoes that are equally chic and comfortable (there’s nothing more unattractive than a girl that can’t walk in her heels). Oh and red lipstick. 

Q: How would you describe your personal style?

A: I ask myself “Would a French woman wear this?” My style is unfussy and minimalistic, I don’t wear a lot of color, but I always try to incorporate one trendy item to keep things from being too simple. 

image

Q: What’s one piece of styling advice you love giving the most?

A: You never know until you try! If a client is hesitant to try something on, I always repeat that mantra and more often than not they end up loving it! 

Q: What are some of your favorite fall trends that you’ve spotted on The Hunt app?

A: Backpacks, maroon or purple lipstick, high-top sneakers, message tees

image

Q: What tips would you give to aspiring stylists? 

A: You should always stay true to your style and help push your clients to try new things, but never push to the point of making them feel uncomfortable in what they’re wearing. At the end of the day, styling is a collaboration, not a one-way street.

5 Instagram accounts to follow: NYFW

@evachen212

Lucky Mag’s Editor-in-Chief, Eva Chen, has a must-follow IG! Her front row photos give us some serious FOMO but her videos of the final walks from some of her fave shows make us feel like we’re sitting right next to her. 

@weworewhat 

Fashionista Danielle Bernstein is a street style fave at The Hunt! During NYFW, her Instagram is the perfect mix of OOTDs and runway snaps. We’re definitely going start a Hunt for her chic chambray and white ensemble. SWOON.

@EssiePolish

Essie is always a mani go-to but during NYFW, runway models for DKNY, DVF, and Carolina Herrera are wearing Essie, too! They posts the most gorgeous nail art and swatches from behind the scenes of some of the most talked about shows. 

@TeenVogue

Teen Vogue’s Insta is FILLED with behind the scenes pics of models getting primped and prepped for the shows. We’re especially loving the Kendall close-ups!

@happilygrey 

Not only do we love blogger, Mary Seng’s chic style, but we love her snaps from the big apple. From gorgeous pics of NYC to OOTDs and runway pics, Mary’s Instagram (and blog) is a favorite of ours all season long, even after NYFW ;)
