Colleen Lopez Collection: My Top 10 Fall Favorites

If you love clothes as much as I do, you probably can't wait for the Fall season to get here - there's no time of year when it's more fun to shop for new fashions.  It's that little chill in the air that invites us to slip into cozy sweaters, leather jackets, fall dresses and tights and boots.  I'm so excited to share my newest CL Collection with you!  I've put together my Top 10 List of Favorite Fall Must Haves.  Take a peek and let me know if any of my Favorites will become yours...   


1.  It's baaack!  My Favorite Peasant top returns in gorgeous new fall colors!  This versatile Customer Top Rated top can be worn both on or off the shoulders and is often seen on our models for our HSN Jewelry shows (it's my go-to top for showcasing necklaces).   Check out the new colors here:  Colleen Lopez "Favorite" Peasant Top 


2.  It's raining fashion on HSN!  My new "Head of the Classy" top gets an A+ when it comes to figure flattering style.  The beautiful neckline and rushed details will enhance your curves and jazz up jeans, pants or a pencil skirt.  Here I've paired it with Hal Rubenstein's new suede and ponte knit pants.  Move to the head of the fashion class here: Colleen Lopez "Head of Classy" Cowl-Neck Top with Clip  


3.  Show Stopper Alert!  If you looking for a Wow piece that will look amazing with everything from leggings to a LBD - look no further!  My new "Fringe Benefits" velvet burnout poncho is an "all eyes on you" knock out (It looks Fab with my Heidi Daus Necklace!). The value is amazing for this beauty - here I've paired it with Yummy By Heather Thompson leggings (they're awesome when it comes to comfort and slimming design)!  Available in two colors:   Colleen Lopez "Fringe Benefits" Burnout Poncho


4.  Oooh La La!  My fabulous Customer Pick "That's so French" poncho is back in beautiful new colors!  This versatile, cozy, poncho is one I originally found in Paris - It's the perfect travel companion not to mention fun to just throw on for everyday wear.  Here I've paired it with my gorgeous new "What a Girl Wants" leather tote - soft, supple and oh so stylish!! Say "oui' to this chic poncho and purse, tout suite: Colleen Lopez "That's so French" Ruffle Poncho, Colleen Lopez "What A Girl Wants" Leather Tote 



5. Maximize your look for fall.  Even though summer will be coming to an end soon, it doesn't mean we have to give up our Maxi Dresses!  This "Friday Favorite" Maxi is one you can dress up or down with boots for daytime and heels for dinner.  It's has a built in tank and lining for comfortable, slimming style.  Take your fall look to the Max here:  Colleen Lopez "Friday Favorite" Maxi Dress 



6. Say Yes to this Dress.   Looking for the perfect LBD that will show your modern, elegant, confident style?  Look no further than this mixed media stunner: Mission Accomplished!  Colleen Lopez "Mission Accomplished" Dress  


7.  Everything's coming up Roses for Fall!  One of my favorite fall trends is dark florals - and my "Perfect Pick" dress will bring you a bouquet of compliments!  Already a perfect 5 Star Customer Pick on - you may want to order this one early - Stop and smell the roses: Colleen Lopez "Perfect Pick" Floral Dress  


8.  Crushing on Fall Leather!  May I introduce one of my favorite leather jacket crushes of all time?  This knock out jacket (with a fabulous tie in the back) will have you looking like a million bucks both coming and going.  I don't leave home without this jacket when I travel  and is a go to item in my closet.  Here I've paired it with the fabulous CJ by Cooking Johnson Faith Straight Jeans.  My jacket is available in Black, Navy or Cognac - Pick your favorite color: Colleen Lopez "Classic Crush" Leather Jacket 


9.  Getting dressed is a Breeze.   This will become one of your new BFF's.  I own this top in every color and it continues to be a favorite item for me.  Paired with skinnies, jeggings, leggings or pencil skirts - It's pretty, comfortable and flattering.  If you order one of these beauties, I have a feeling you'll be back for more!  Here I'm wearing the new Plum/Lilac color with a Himalayan Gems Potay!  The Breeze Top is a Customer Top Pick and by Customer Request it's back in fabulous new fall colors: Colleen Lopez "Breeze" Poncho  


10:  The Perfect 10.  To finish off my Top 10 List, my collection would not be complete without this  beautiful Urban Twist all leather peplum top!  Of all the fashions I've worn on HSN, I've had more requests for this fabulous top.  Be sure to check the sizing chart to get your proper size - most of you will have to order up at least one size (order by your chest measurement).  I'm also wearing Sam Edelman Suede Pumps, my Colleen Lopez "Sleek & Chic" Sweater Knit & Faux Leather Skirt and Colleen Lopez "Smooth Operator" Tights - One word:  AMAZING!


Hope you can join me on Monday, August 18 at 10:00 ET as we celebrate Fall Fashions!  Anyone else Falling for Fall?

Colleen's Picks for Now and Later Fashion


 Even though I start to get excited about new fall clothes this time of year, the truth is we're not going to be putting away our sandals and sundresses any time soon!  There are still 9 weeks of summer on the calendar so I've put together a list of buy now, wear forever items we can wear for all of the remaining warm weather fun as well as the cooler temps to come...

Perfect Picks




Whether it's a weekend college visit, a summer wedding, cocktails after work or dinner al fresco, there are a few key pieces that are perfect to buy now and wear for seasons to come.  A great fitting jean in a darker wash, pretty blouses, the perfect LBD and versatile wrap dress are all at the top of my list.  Look for beautiful transition colors like warm sienna, cobalt blue, cyprus green. radiant orchid and rich florals for summer time fashion you will still be wearing when the leaves start to fall...


Jump In!


If you want to look uber stylish yet be super comfortable, a jump suit is a great choice to buy now!  Rompers allow you the freedom of movement whether you're hosting a gathering, attending a class reunion or chasing after little ones.  For the girl on the go a jumpsuit will transition beautifully into fall when you add a jacket or cardi.  Take the leap with a jump suit - one and done!

It's a Wrap


 While the outdoors are still sweltering, you will find the juxtaposing indoor air conditioning equally uncomfortable which brings us to the need for a light wrap or cardigan.  Keep one of these pieces on hand for a surefire way to beat the heat or rather a/c!  On a cool summer night or come September you'll love having a few stylish wraps to throw on keep the chill off.

Chic Feet


A little lift does us all some good!  Not only do you look taller in a heel, but you feel sexier as well.  Sandals and wedges in autumnal shades of suede and leather will look beautiful with a summer tan and pair perfectly with a fall wardrobe palate.

No Melt Make Up


It doesn't matter the weather - we all want our make up to stay put!  Leave the drip drops for the rain.  While summer rules are laid back, there is one rule that is solid- makeup must not run down one's face.  Chose a primer and foundation that promises staying power and chose a waterproof mascara and lip tint as well!


Shady Lady


Summer sun requires protection for our peepers and a new pair of shades is always a good investment.  Instead of opting for white or summer bright frames right now, choose a pair in amber, aubergine, smokey grey or tortoise - You'll look cool for the rest of the summer and have it made in the shade for fall.

Add Some Spice 


This summer is all about showing some skin and there's no better way to fill in a neckline that with a stunning statement necklace!  Eye catching jewels are the ultimate way to spruce up a casual summer tee or simple summer dress and elevate a bohemian look to chic status.  While jeweled necklaces glisten in the summer sun, they will look equally as dazzling with your fall and winter outfits, too. 


It's In The Bag 



 One of the best investments for year round wear is a great bag.  This time of year choose one with rich textures in a neutral palate.  Tassels, metalic hardware, and mixed mixed media will add instant pizzaz to your summer outfits and take you right into fall in fabulous style.


Let's not rush summer along too fast - there's still plenty of warm, sunny days ahead and we'll be pulling out our jackets and sweaters before we know it.  By choosing any of these multi-seasonal wardrobe must haves you will look sensational Now and Later!

Colleen's Styling Tips for Full Figure Flattery


Talk about killer curves.  Marilyn and Jayne both knew how to maximize their assets.  When it comes to feeling confident and looking slimmer, why not take a page out of their book?  Here are a few full figure tips and tricks for accentuating the positive for major curve appeal!


Build your outfit on a firm foundation


One of the biggest mistakes women make when getting dressed is wearing the wrong undergarments.  A proper fitting bra and slimming, comfortable shape wear can make all the difference in how you will look and feel in your clothes.  There are so may great options for women today in the "slim" wear department - the perfect fitting bra and body smoothing panties will make your body confidence soar.


She's got legs!



I'm sure you'll agree, old Hollywood actresses understood the power of a fabulous dress.  Curvy figures look wonderful in skirts, so choose a style that flatters your great gams.  A-line and pencil skirts are the most flattering choices.  A pencil skirt is both slimming and classic and an A-Line will narrow your waist and flow over your hips and thighs.  Choose a length that hits at a flattering part of your leg - for most women this will be just at or right below the knee.  For another great skirt and dress option - Maxi lengths are ultra versatile and with the proper fit (top of your dress should cinch at the narrowest part of your torso), you'll look and feel like a million bucks! 


 No tents allowed!


Sometimes we fall into the trap of trying to hide in clothes that are too big and in doing so, they only make us look bigger.  Instead of wearing a voluminous, shapeless top, choose a longer top that skims the body and hits below the hip and above the thigh.  Longer tops, especially those with detailing at the waist, tend to draw the eye to the smallest part of your torso, making you look more svelte and streamlined!  A long top is best paired with a slim bottom - great fitting tunics and slim pants are a curvy girl's must have!

In living color! 



We all know that black is always slimming, but color can make you look both sensational and sleek in a snap! Notice how the girls in the pictures look great just by adding a lightweight, colorful cardigan that has an V-shaped hemline.  Incorporating layers in two colors into your outfit tricks the eye into thinking that there are different dimensions, helping you to look cinched in all the right places!


V Necklines:  Take the plunge 


Put your face in the spotlight and throw on a v-neck shirt.  The plunge of a V-shaped neckline shows off one of the prettiest parts of a woman, her décolleté.  A V Neckline always looks beautifully feminine, elongates your neck and brings the eye up while slimming you down. 


Color Block 


For many years, designers have taken notice of what the magical powers of color block can do to a woman's shape!  Strategically placed vertical lines in a darker color on the sides of your body which create a coveted hourglass silhouette!  The darker colors bring the eye in, tricking the eye and making you look instantly slimmer - Abra Cadabra !


All Eyes on You


Lights, camera, action!  Hollywood movie sirens figured this one out a long time ago - One of the best ways to enhance an outfit and flatter a bold beautiful figure is with stunning statement jewelry.  A "conversation" necklace will help strike a perfect cord and create a beautiful focal point.  So don a show stopping necklace and let the complements begin!


Curves never go out of style, so incorporate a few of these slim styling tricks and celebrate beautiful you!
