Looks to try for Thanksgiving 2016

It’s hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Thinking about delicious food can be fun, but thinking about what you are going to wear to the big event can sometimes be a pain. Have no fear, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the skinny on head to toe Turkey Day looks based on Fall/Winter Runway trends.

Let your hair be wild and free. Volume is a top trending look when it comes to the fall 2016 hairstyles that dominate the runways from North America to Europe, New York to Milan, London and Paris. We see ombre hair with voluminous waves appear at Diane von Furstenberg and it is a look that will be great for the professional as well as the party-goer. Zac Posen’s ladies definitely enjoy the volume in their hair, coming from a lovely center part and falling around the shoulders and down the back with waves so strong they are almost curls.

Ashish really had fun with the hot pink dizzying effects on the hair. Be sure to purchase the Olea E Haircare Giftset to help repair any damage that may have happened from styling. The set includes Olea E Shampoo & Conditioner, Olea E Hairmask and Olea E Hair Serum.


Another frenchpleatlook to try is the French pleat. Check this out, there are braids and then there are plaits. One of the most intriguing fall/ winter 2016-2017 hairstyle trends is in the form of French pleats, which are more twisted creations across the center of the head and the crown than anything else, with a rather olden nobility feel to a few of the masterpieces, those spotted at Gareth Pugh a pretty specific and good example. Here’s how to rock the French pleat courtesy of Youtube.

However, there are the modernized braided hairstyles as well, with a Mohawk style French pleat appearing at Kenzo and some really curly locks stealing the limelight at Giorgio Armani. This is a 1950s Rock ‘n’ Roll hairstyle that can come in romantic or rebellious, quite versatile in its formation. Hold it tightly in place or allow the curls to roam free, but this must-have style for the coming fall and winter is simply something to mull over for those crazy awesome parties.

Here are some super cute clothing/accessory ideas from Elle. If those aren’t your cup of tea, try rocking some celeb looks like the ones shown in Glamour.

With so much of the focus on olden days on the runway shows during the past few months, we sometimes crave something new and fit for the world of today. As such, it makes perfect sense that some designers also think in a similar fashion and create hairstyles, which effectively celebrate the modernization of the olden and the creation of a modern twist to the traditional. Often with actual twists. Marchesa’s knotted bun at the nape of the neck is certainly a good example as the twisted strands have been pulled together to create a lovely sleek look that screams youthful sophistication.

The loveliest of the olden meet newer fall 2016 hairstyles that we have seen on many a designer runway show is the use of finger waves, where it is just barely there but still adds that little touch of adorable sweetness to a look, softening a more severe style or adding a youthful bounce to an older ensemble. From Opening Ceremony to Dries Van Noten, Marc Jacobs to Jenny Packham, the finger waves popped up in New York, London, Milan and Paris, all four major Fashion Week catwalks featuring this style.

There was everything from the lacquered curls to the gentler looks in undulating fringes pulled to the side. The best was deemed to be Eugene Souleiman’s take on the style, a little gentler than Stella McCartney’s finger waves, which in of themselves were pretty soft, with the added bonus of a casual ponytail.
