Hot Tips and Trends from Celebrity Stylist Irma Martinez

Whether you're getting ready for a special night like the Latin GRAMMY Awards, shopping with friends, or spending the day at the office, scent is just as important as accessories are to complete your look. According to internationally renowned celebrity stylist Irma Martinez, a scent that complements your overall mood and occasion is the perfect way to put the finishing touch on your entire look.  Martinez shares some of her favorite style trends for fall:

  • Personality Shines—This fall season, we're seeing a lot of tribal, futuristic and romantic influence in fashion. Remember no matter which style you strut, it's important to make sure it fits your lifestyle and personality.

  • Comfort is Key—Comfort and fashion might not always go hand-in-hand but there are tricks to make sure you stay comfy so you can be confident and look great all day or night. Keep your toes feeling good with padded shoe liners and practice walking in towering heels before their debut. A twisted ankle is never in style.

  • Scent-sational—Style doesn't stop with clothes and accessories, so be sure to pick a scent that complements your look. Each of the Degree Women Fine Fragrance Collection scents brings out a different feminine side – whether it's flirty, energetic or seductive!  

  • Camel is Cool for Fall—Camel is the color for autumn. Because it's a neutral color, combine it with white, black or even red for a truly vibrant look. If you want to really spice things up, combine camel tones with fun animal prints.

  • Fashion Fixes—Loose beads and wardrobe blunders are a thing of the past! Keep an emergency kit handy with a thread and needle, bandages for blisters and double-stick tape to avoid any fashion faux pas.
