Life’s a beach in Malibu, where surf-chic style reigns supreme all year round. For those heading to warmer climates on the West Coast, celebrity fashion stylist Dana Tycher Reisman, founder of personal shopping and styling service DTR Styles, shares her top picks for a relaxed Malibu look.

“Malibu is one of my favorite places in the world – I just love the laid back vibe. The style is beachy and fun, with a little edge inspired by the vibrant Malibu music scene.

Introducing the newest Fall MUST HAVE this season!! I am absolutely mad about leather!! I cannot get enough, and have been on a massive man hunt to find that perfect leather vest. I searched high and low, and came up with my favorite motorcycle duds for this fall. Leather vests are a great way to complete an outfit and seal the deal. If you ever feel like something is missing, just throw the vest on and load up on arm and neck candy and your good to go ;) enjoy my favs by Phillip Lim, Alexander McQueen, the forever stylist and trendsetters, the olsen girls at The Row, Lanvin and the list goes on. xoxo, DTR


You’ve finally decided that you want to branch out of your makeup regime and try a new shade of lipstick. Yet, so many questions are running through your head: How do you find the perfect color to complement your skin tone? Enhance your hair color? Work with the outfits you want to wear? It’s a daunting process.

When I shop for new makeup, the same thoughts go through my head. I also like finding versatile products that work for a variety of situations, making the process just that much harder. For example, I like to find the perfect lipstick that will look natural during the day but also can make a statement at night and overall, give an effortless vibe. (Trust me, these products exist!)

This past weekend I decided to go Sephora and dedicate a chunk of my day to find my next favorite lip shade for fall. That’s where I discovered the Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge lipstick line. This product allows you to choose the intensity of the lip color, by either applying directly to your lip or after a coat of ChapStick or lip balm.

For my complexion, the Aubergine Velvet shade worked perfectly. During the day, I prefer having only a slight tint of the lip color for a natural hue, but at night can apply directly for a more dramatic look. I highly recommend testing out the Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge lipstick line to see which color works best for you!

DTR Styles Pick of the Week

I have a love-hate relationship with nail polish. I love experimenting with new hues, but at the same time, don’t like to wear outrageous colors. I want a hue that looks chic and classic; one that will work the majority of the outfits in my closet.

I’m so excited to have found Essie’s “No More Film” Nail Polish from their 2012 Resort Collection (available at Nordstrom) – it’s the perfect shade of violet, a subtle color in between navy and purple. It’s a great alternative to navy or black in the summer, but still a wonderful color to wear though fall and winter.
