Transitioning into the cold may be rough for, but it's also an opportunity to revamp your wardrobe! Looking for some style inspiration this season? Storganize reached out to a few of AU's own to explore their fall and winter favourites.
Pro Tip: Create space for the big coats in your closet by storing away your summer wardrobe!
BECCA HIGHLIGHT, CHAMPAGNE POP: “A little swipe of champagne pop and you’re a glowing goddess even in the fall."
ELIZABETH AND JAMES, NIRVANA WHITE: "Some search a lifetime for their soul scent. Though I typically do not divulge this information, my signature scent is Nirvana White by Elizabeth and James. Perfect for day or night."
MAC, VIVA GLAM IV: "Lots of people assume that fall means you have to bring out deep reds and browns but that could not be further from the truth. Neutrals work year round. This lipstick gives your lips a natural color and plump look that is perfect if you are trying to emulate the no-makeup makeup trend."
TOO FACED, NATURAL EYES & URBAN DECAY, NAKED 2: "My two favorite eye shadow palates are natural eyes by two faced and the naked 2 by Urban Decay. Natural Eyes gives you every shade of brown you could ever want ranging with options for every occasion. Naked Eyes has great base colors and also a great grey combo to build a base for a smoky eye."
MARBLE COASTERS: "Marble is the key to any room décor. These marble coasters spice up my white living room table."
VOLUSPA CANDLES: If it smells like fall then it is fall, right? The Voluspa candles have quickly become a favorite of mine. This candle is accessorized by a vintage match jar.
CLEMENT ABONYI JR.

If you had to give advice to someone who knew nothing about how to dress what would it be?
Clement: My advice would be find individuals that dress in a way that YOU appreciate, not society, and get ideas from them. Choose colors and clothes that compliment and enhance your natural beauty!
THIERRY MUGLER, ALIEN: "Contains notes of jasmine sambac, cardamom, orange blossom, cumin, cashmeran, amber and heliotrope."
MICHEAL KORS, GOLD TONE BRADSHAW WATCH: "I love gold accents so this watch makes the perfect accessory! I find that watches also tend to add a touch of sophistication."
URBAN OUTFITTERS, ALIX OPAL CHOKER & SNAKE CHAIN WRAP CHOKER NECKLACE: "Accessories have the power to elevate the simplest of ensembles. I love the way chokers add a little something more to each outfit!"
RAY BAN, GATSBY II SUNGLASSES: "I love the fit of these sunglasses, the shape is classic and the gold metal makes them standout."
RIFLE PAPER CO. PLANNER: "Winter usually means that the New Year is right around the corner so a planner is a must to own the next year. I usually look for a planner that is not only helpful but is aesthetically pleasing as well."
PERFUME (CHLOE & CHANEL): "I think everyone should wear perfume. I tend to splurge on fragrances because I believe smelling good is a great first impression and why not impress someone with a lil Chanel."
DIPTYQUE'S BAIES CANDLE: "I am an avid candle collector. My go-to brands are Diptyque’s Baies or Jo Malone’s Wild Fig & Cassis. I think candles are such a luxury and just adds that oomph to your day."
LIPS (ANASTASIA, STILA, TARTE, NARS): "I always go for the same natural look with the same lip colour which is why I have tons of the same shade. My favorite lipstick colours range from mauves to deep pinks/browns. My absolute favorite is Anatasia’s Liquid lipstick in Ashton."
BRACELET: This is my favorite bracelet I owned. My family is half Egyptian so I grew up around the evil eye a lot and have grew to love the meaning behind it. My mom is an avid collector of the evil eye and whenever I wear this bracelet it reminds me of her.
