Last year was so . . . 2016. With 2017 comes a chance to put a fresh spin on your old Fall wardrobe. And when it comes to moving into a new season, there's only good news and better news. The good news: you're going to love this year's hottest trends. The better news: they don't require a fashion lobotomy. That's because for every pair of leather leggings and frayed jeans in your closet, there's an equally (and we might argue, superior!) fabulous style waiting in the wings. The only bad news?
It's so hard to say goodbye to Summer, but more difficult than parting with the long days and our ice cream diet is leaving behind our warm-weather wardrobes. Whether you were wearing breezy striped dresses or comfy furry slides, it's time to pack them up until next year and part ways as you would your beach-house friends. But the news isn't all bad, because we've been saying "see you in September" to a few exciting new trends that will seamlessly fill the void.
When you hear the phrase "27 dresses," a montage from the 2008 Katherine Heigl rom-com might pop into your mind. But allow us to provide another, more palatable visual. Fall's fresh offerings for wedding-guest dresses feature trendy ruffles, rich hues, and eye-catching silhouettes. We've narrowed down the list to our favorite 27 (OK, two of them are jumpsuits, but who's counting?). Read through to shop our picks for everything from cocktail to black tie, demure to sultry, elegant to flirty.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
