Now that fall is officially upon us, it is time to enjoy all the amazing things that the season has to offer—whether that means catching a new program, trying out a new trend, or revamping your beauty look. Of course, trying to figure out where to start can be a daunting process, which is why our monthly edition of The Hot List is so handy! The Hot List will bring you up to speed on all the major happenings in the world of fashion, letting you know what you must watch, wear, and read, among other things. On that note, here is everything you need to know about in October! Read on!
If we had to pick just one channel to watch this fall, it might just be Bravo TV. After all, not only can we get our weekly fix of The Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo, but now we can watch two more fashion-focused shows! Beginning tomorrow, you can tune in to Mad Fashion, a show that chronicles the adventures of Chris March and his madcap design team, or Fashion Hunters, a look inside the world of high-end thrift shopping in New York City.
Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply
If ever there was a label that was made for fall, it would have to be Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply. The line, which has just launched, is simultaneously inspired by the artistic communities of Brooklyn and the heritage of Ralph Lauren. How does the inspiration translate to clothes? You will find worn-in denim jackets, Buffalo-plaid button-downs, utilitarian cargo pants, chunky sweaters and more. The Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply collection is available now at Macy’s. Prices start at $39.50.
Varsity jackets were all over the fall runways—brands like Rag & Bone, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Givenchy all offered up a take—and now the style is beginning to make its way onto the streets. We love the way Vogue Paris assistant stylist Geraldine Saglio styled hers with a little black dress and strappy sandals. It gives her ensemble a casual, sporty twist and looks, unsurprisingly, ultra-cool. To try this trend, check out Rag & Bone’s Varsity Jacket ($695) or ASOS’s Varsity Leather Jacket ($78.57).
Vogue: The Covers
If you have watched even a minute of The September Issue, you know that a Vogue cover is of the utmost importance. And though the covers may have changed in style since the first issue was published in 1892, one thing remains the same: they always provide us with a talking point. Now, more than 300 of the most thought-provoking covers have been chronicled in Vogue: The Covers, the new must-have coffee-table tome by Dodie Kazanjian. Pick up your issue now from Amazon.com for just $29.64.
Les Jeans de Chanel
If there is one thing we know, it is that few nail polishes can rival the must-have-it-know allure of a new Chanel collection. That said, we suggest you quickly click through to Chanel.com and purchase the limited edition Les Jeans de Chanel collection. Inspired by denim, the collection features three blue hues: a dark navy, a pale eggshell blue, and a creamy mid-hue blue. Whether you try them one after the other, or mix and match, you will always stand out in Chanel. Always.
Miss Dior Bag
If you consider yourself a modern-day Miss Dior—you have the fragrance, the shoes, the dresses—make sure you complete your look with a piece from the new Miss Dior handbag collection. Featuring a structured silhouette and a classic flap opening, the bag comes in various textures—including lambskin, crocodile, and python—not to mention a range of colorful hues. The chain handle only adds to the elegance. The Miss Dior handbag collection is available now at Dior boutiques.
