HOW TO WEAR IT

Billowy harem pants and jumpsuits make a bold statement. To balance the look, “contrast the fluidity of the pants with an architectural shoe,” says stylist Alexa Ryan. When it comes to jewelry, less is more. “Forget stacking on bangles,” warns Ryan. “Or you’ll look like you’ve just been let out of a genie’s bottle.”

WELCOME MATTES

These stars are giving up the gloss this season in favor of bright, matte lipstick

HOW TO GET THE LOOK

  • SOFTEN UP
  • “The real trick to prepping lips for matte textures is to exfoliate,” says celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin. Use a balm to avoid “the dreaded cracked clay effect.”
  • USE A LIPLINER
  • Definition is key. “Pencils can be great for getting the lip shape just right.”
  • CHOOSE BRIGHTS
  • Don’t be afraid to go bold. “Don’t use colors too close to your skin tone; it erases the lips,” warns Goodwin.
