Fashion Fix: Fall Color Trends For Men

When it comes to fashion, let’s not forget about the MEN…..

Similar to the season’s palette for women, there is also a very vibrant color selection for men too. Rhubarb, a deep rich hue, brings intensity to the palette, and it’s best attractively paired with Tangerine Tango and Honey Gold for a studious look. If you ever wondered what colors will complement those ski slopes; Ultramarine Green with Bright Chartreuse and Olympian Blue is a winning combination for the ultimate extreme winter athletic apparel.

On the other hand, if you don’t always want the constant attention of the vibrant tones of fall and want to wear tones that are a little more neutral, Whitecap Gray is a awesome go-to color because of its great classic off – white hue. Sea Fog is another neutral gray that is very stylish with muted purple, which exudes the right amount of masculinity with just a pinch of softness. Put these two neutrals with Titanium for a very straight forward sophisticated direction. Combine 3 neutrals in a dress shirt or tie with a basic, versatile French Roast for a classic fall look.

Warming Up With Fall Spirits

I love a refreshing Mojito…but somehow, they just don’t translate to the fall, for me. In the fall, I prefer to drink something that’s a little deeper in flavor. It’s more about sipping a full-bodied liquor by the fireplace, than guzzling a light and sweet ‘jito under the summer sun.

So to help you find a new signature drink for this fall, CherryOnTop has gathered five recipes for fall cocktails that you can make at home or order when you’re out on the town with the girls. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a fan of vodka, gin, Jack or tequila.

Two Tart’s Vanilla, Pear & Vodka
With specs of vanilla bean, pear nector and a sugared rim, these cool fall flavors are refreshing.
Recipe

El Catrin
Tequila and Chocolate? Yes! Or Si! The deep smokey flavors of the tequila and chocolate bitters are tempered by a slight tart sweetness from fresh orange juice.
Recipe

Apropos
Best known to New Yorkers as a classic served at the Gramercy Tavern, this drink is bittersweet which combines well with the herbiness of gin.
Recipe

The Fig Sidecar
Once you taste this, you will likely be hooked. Cognac is the star ingredient, infused with sweet, earthy fig. Be sure to save a little of the spiced brown sugar for the rim!
Recipe

The Jack-O-Lantern
If you like your liquor strong and sweet, this is the cocktail for you. A combination of Jack Daniels, pumpkin puree, apple cider and maple syrup, combine for a true Halloween treat.

CherryOnTop’s Top Five New TV Shows Worth Checking Out

As summer comes to a close, you may find yourself putting your favorite swimsuit away in the back of your drawer knowing the possibilities of summer are gone and the chill of winter is on the horizon. We’re dreading autumn leaves, cold nights and shorter days, but there’s actually a sign of fall we await with pleasure – our favorite television shows returning from summer hiatus! This week marks the kickoff of 2011’s fall television season, and networks have a slew of new shows they hope will be a ratings gold mine. We here at CherryOnTop have compiled five new shows that are must see TV!

~ Pan Am

Many are buzzing about this new period drama. Pan Am is being touted as the next Mad Men. The show is centered around the real-life iconic airline, Pan American Airways. The airline was known for it’s glamorous and highly stylized stewardesses. The show is set in the 1960s and follows the lives of the stewardesses and their bouts with “passion, jealousy, and espionage.” ABC is hoping ratings ‘take off’ with this new show, and perhaps give Mad Men a run for its money (Mad Men recently won its fourth Emmy for Outstanding Drama). Christina Ricci (Black Snake Moan) stars as Maggie, a rebellious bohemian who takes on the stewardess position in order to see the world. The series debuts September 25 at 10 pm EST.

~ The Playboy Club

NBC is also jumping into the 1960s with their provocative drama The Playboy Club. The series centers on the beautiful “Bunnies” and the patrons of the dazzling Chicago club. Amber Heard (Zombieland) stars as Maureen, a woman seeking adventure in the glamorous world of The Playboy Club. She quickly finds out that she is in way over her head. Naturi Naughton (Notorious) also stars as Brenda, the beautiful Bunny with big aspirations. The show airs Mondays at 10 pm EST on NBC.

~ Revenge

While most people go to the Hamptons for the parties, beach and status, Emily Thorne is there for something else… Revenge. Emily, played by Emily Van Camp (Brothers & Sisters), is welcomed into a rich Hamptons community. No one knows she once lived there before when she was a child but something went terribly wrong. The incident ruined her family and their reputation. Now Emily has returned to exact revenge on those who betrayed her. “Revenge is universal…Revenge is old as humanity. Dark and dramatic and endless,” said Mike Kelley, the creator of the series. Will Revenge have us glued to our sofas every Wednesday night, or is it just another primetime soap? The drama starts September 21 at 10 pm EST on ABC.

~ 2 Broke Girls

Created by Sex and the City executive producer Michael Patrick King and comedian Whitney Cummings (who has her own show, Whitney, on NBC), 2 Broke Girls is a traditional sitcom with a little edge. It’s about two completely different women who are thrown together as unlikely roommates and coworkers. Kat Denning (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) plays Max, a cool sassy waitress at a Brooklyn diner. Beth Behrs (American Pie Presents: The Book of Love) plays Caroline, a down-on-her-luck trust fund kid whose assets are frozen when her father is arrested in a Madoff-like scandal. The show airs Mondays on CBS at 9:30 pm EST after Two and a Half Men.

~ Whitney

“Always a trophy. Never a wife.” That is just one of many “Whitney-isms.” It’s Whitney Cummings off-color and non-traditional approach to dating. Cummings who is a comedian and TV writer decided to develop her own self-titled series because she did not think there were enough strong women characters on television. Whitney is about a woman living with her boyfriend Alex, played by Chris D’ Elia (Boston Legal). However, she is in no rush to get married like many of her friends. She even questions monogamy and other relationship institutions. Watch as Whitney tries to put the spice back into her relationship. This witty and irreverent comedy premieres September 22 at 9:30 pm EST on NBC.

When fall officially begins, don’t fret about the colder weather. After all, your favorite shows are returning, along with some brand spanking new ones…and hopefully, someone to watch them with (but that’s a whole other topic). Happy fall!

Rihanna Gets New Look For Armani Ad Campaign

Rihanna is almost unrecognizable in the Fall/Winter ad campaign for Armani Jeans. It was announced that Rih-Rih would be the new face of Armani’s denim and underwear line back in July, and it appears the Bajan beauty is doing well following in the footsteps of Megan Fox, David and Victoria Beckham, who have all posed for ads for the Italian fashion designer. The ultra-seductive singer was photographed in a sexy black-and-white ad by Steven Klein. The photographer captures Rihanna’s dark and edgy nature as she poses in all back with a short, bleach blonde haircut. The “Man Down” singer rests slightly on a classic car, wearing high-waisted Armani Jeans and a cropped sweater.

Hot!

Clothing To Fall Into

With Labor Day marking the unofficial end of summer, we are now heading into transition wear season. Transition wear season is the period after Labor Day when kids go back to school, beach days are basically a thing of the past and pumpkin flavored treats start popping up everywhere. While fall hasn’t officially started and the weather is still warm, the floral patterns and bright colors of summer don’t seem seasonally appropriate anymore. Transitional wear will keep you looking great until the trees go bare.

While many of your cute little sundresses will get packed away for the season this time of year, cute dresses in denim or neutral colors like brown, tan, black or olive are perfect right now. Dresses in these colors and made of slightly heavier fabric than that of a sundress look adorable in the cooler days of fall when paired with stockings or sweater tights.

If you want a different approach to fashion during this season, dressy shorts look great when paired with tights and boots or oxfords. Pairing tights with jean shorts can give a more casual fun look.

Plain lightweight but well-fitting t-shirts look great on their own with jeans and fun accessories and make great layering pieces. Go for whatever shirt style you like best: V-neck, crew neck or boatneck. Just make sure it isn’t too big and baggy as that will make you look sloppy and heavier than you are.

During this time of year, the temperature goes up and down throughout the day – chilly mornings, warm afternoons and crisp evenings. Cardigans are great to keep you warm, without being too bulky. They are also easier to slip off when it starts getting warm and less obnoxious to carry around.

What will you be wearing for the season change?

Naomi Campbell Works It (While Tied Up) On The Cover Of V Spain

Naomi Campbell appears on the cover of the ‘Fall Film Issue’ of V Spain. According to Concrete Loop, international fashion photographer Sebastian Faena snapped the ageless supermodel for the cover, which was inspired by the 1990 Spanish film ¡Átame! (translation: Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!) as a tribute to the film’s director, Pedro Almodóvar.

Speaking about the cover, Naomi said, “I am sure some have wanted to ‘Tie Me Up and Tie Me Down,’ and perhaps others wanted to tape my mouth shut!”

Hilarious! Despite her reputation, we love us some Naomi!!
