A trenchcoat is classic and timeless and all those other words used by fashion magazines to describe a clothing item that is forever considered a “must have.” But it also is (unfairly, I think) associated with prim and proper ladies who lunch, when really it’s quite a versatile piece of outerwear for spring and fall. Here, model Jessica Hart wears a vintage T-shirt, black jeans and booties, a look that might otherwise be totally shlubby if not for the trench she topped the whole look off with. That trench says, “I may look like I just rolled out of bed, but I mean business.” Wear a trench coat and your chances of being taken seriously go up by approximately 15 percent, according to anecdotal research conducted by me. Who doesn’t want that? Get the whole look above, after the jump! Keep reading »
How cute does Taylor Swift look with her sassy new haircut (#shorthairdontcare) and an itty bitty polka dot dress? Answer: SUPER CUTE. Also see how those tan peep toe pumps make her legs look about 3 miles long? Sure, it helps that her legs are actually 3 miles long, but a similar shoe can do wonders for even those of us whose legs aren’t usually measured in miles. Get all the shopping details to steal Swifty’s style (for a fraction of the pop star price), after the jump! Keep reading »
Next time you wake up late and only have a few minutes to get ready for work, save time stressing over what to wear and just throw on your favorite black and white pieces. Like the outfit my favorite do-nothing socialite Olivia Palermo is rocking above, sticking with black and white is a guaranteed way to look at least a little pulled together, no matter how frazzled you might feel inside. I love how Olivia has layered a fitted honeycomb sweater over an oversized button-down and skinny tuxedo pants — the proportions are so flattering. Find out how to get the look above, after the jump!

I love Beyonce, love her so much, but I’m pretty convinced that she’s not entirely human. Lil’ sis Solange, however, shares many of Bey’s awesome qualities — including her musical talent — but is somehow more accessible. I realize that in the context of basically saying that Bey is too perfect for words, it probably sounds like I’m dissing Solange, but I’m not. She is genuinely my favorite fully-human Knowles sister. She’s also been a huge influence on Bey’s personal style. Want to know what Bey might be wearing in a few months? Look to what trends Solange is rocking now. Speaking of which, I loved this look that Solange wore to a show at New York Fashion Week, layering a short-sleeved jeweled sweatshirt over a wild printed button-down, and then making the whole thing ladylike with the addition of a sleek pencil skirt and double breasted coat. Yup, flawless. Get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
If you haven’t heard of Dree Hemingway, you’ve certainly heard of her family … you know, mom Mariel and great-grandfather Ernest. But despite the Hollywood and literary genes, which she could outfit in nothing but highend designer threads 24/7, Dree still appreciates a bargain, wearing a crop top and skirt from Peter Pilotto’s collab with Target to a recent event. The line just hit stores, which means you can score, uh, 66.33 percent of her exact outfit — plus some cool heeled loafers to top the whole thing off. Get the details, after the jump! Keep reading »
I’d barely finished my ode to over-the-knee socks when I spotted Vanessa Hudgens in this 90s-tastic little outfit. So cute, right? I tracked down Vanessa’s exact daisy print dress (for 80 bucks!), along with everything else you’ll need to recreate this look. Just add my favorite over-the-knee socks in “bark” and you’ll have Vanessa’s style stolen so accurately you might be able to get a job as her shopping double. Get all the details after the jump!

I’ll be honest. I’m kind of over fedoras. I mean, I have been over them for dudes since day one (though a lifetime exception is made for Mr. Justin Timberlake), but I was down with the trend for the ladies earlier this fall. Reese Witherspoon is still a fan, however, and has paired hers with a cute floral skater skirt, slouchy sweater and booties. You can feel free to do the same when replicating this outfit, or ditch the fedora in favor of whatever you think the next trend in headgear will be. Bowlers? Mouse ears? A snood? Ugh, wait, not a snood. Anyway, get the details on how to steal Reese’s steez, after the jump!

I think I’ve made it pretty clear that one of my favorite recent trends has been the rise of the “fancy” sweatshirt, i.e. sweatshirts that are dressed/femmed up with statement necklaces, skirts and high heels. I am always psyched when a loungewear staple becomes suitable for work. One of the designers responsible for this trend is Kenzo, which makes the sweatshirt Jessica Alba is wearing above. Now, that fancy sweatshirt requires a fancy wallet with a whole lotta bills in it — seriously, Kenzo sweatshirts are over $300! — but luckily, the trend is so pervasive that I was able to find much more affordable tiger pullover, along with a faux leather skirt, statement necklace and sky-high hooties to complete the look. Get the details after the jump! Keep reading »
Maybe it’s the addition of the half-up-half-down hair, but January Jones’ whole look is my giving me middle school vibes. The oversized denim jacket and pink shirt have a vaguely ’80s, Molly Ringwald preppiness, while the skinny black jeans and sky-high pumps are modern and sexy. I will be copying this, head-to-toe, whenever this goddamn snow stops. Get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
I’ve been staring at this outfit for like 20 minutes trying to decide if it’s awful or amazing. I know that, like, 90 percent of the population is going to hate it, but there’s something about it that’s tickling my love for retro statement pieces, like fringed ponchos (please don’t ask why I consider Baja hoodies to be crimes against humanity but apparently have a soft spot in my heart for fringed ponchos). Anyway, if you’re one of the three other people on Earth who are kind of into this outfit, read on to get an affordable version of this look for yourself! Keep reading »
