How To Go From Sweet To Vampy This Fall/Winter

Going for a soft and sweet look is sooooo last year. This fall/winter, it’s due time you make the transition from doe-eyed dame to vampy vixen! While we understand that making the switch could be scary for some, we’ve got the five major style and beauty switch-up tips that’ll have you dipping into the dark side in a snap!

Your signature red lip needs a fall-appropriate update! Try out dark shades like MAC’s “Young Rapunzel” or Revlon’s “Va Va Violet.”

We love kicking our Chelsea boots through the fall leaves too, but nothing can beat the sexiness of a thigh-high pair of boots.  If you’re feeling extra edgy, snag ‘em in leather.

Add Leather + Velvet…Lots Of It

What’s hotter than a curve-hugging buttery leather skirt? A crushed velvet one, duh! The fabric your parents loved to style you in has returned, this time with serious sex appeal. Look out for sheer paneling on velvet dresses (like the one above) for a very vampy look.

Wear Your Top Knot Super High

Switch up your go-to hairstyle by giving the top knot bun a cone finish! After you’ve got your ponytail slicked back to the perfection, twist and pin the hair into a higher bun that’ll create a cone like shape rather than a rounder bun.

During #vamp season a darker ombré is a MUST! Strip out the pastel dip dye and go for shades like oxblood or eggplant.
