Although the post-Memorial Day rules (which, for the record, we think were made to be broken) officially give us the A-okay to be wearing white right now, it may seem like it's still a little early to bust out your most gleaming pieces. But thanks to Salma Hayek, we've got a great way to do it without feeling like you're rushing the season!
Hayek was on the red carpet for the premiere of Grown Ups last week wearing a white strapless dress from Yves Saint Laurent's latest resort collection, and she pulled out an awesome trick for making it feel a little less August-appropriate--red accessories!
Her bright cherry belt and matching scarlet Trib Two platform pumps help anchor this outfit in a slightly-less-summery place, and they also help accentuate some of her sexiest parts (she even added red lips!).
It's a great way to get more mileage out of your Little White Dress (an absolute summer must-have): Wear it this way now, and then when things get even steamier in July and August, go

They're cheap, comfortable, easy to wear, and an absolute staple in my wardrobe three seasons out of the year--so when it finally comes time to say goodbye to leggings (which may be sooner than you think), I may need to send myself to sartorial rehab.Read More »from Are You Finally Ready To Say Goodbye To Leggings?
A trend, by its very definition, doesn't have too long of a lifespan--what goes up must come down, and all of that--and by most standards, leggings have had one heck of a run (aside from their initial 80s popularity, they've been big again for at least the last three years). So I shouldn't be terribly surprised to hear reporters over at The Guardian predicting their highly imminent demise: "Two years ago this was positively a fashion statement," Jess Cartner-Morley wrote in last weekend's paper. "It was a 'look'. Then, by last summer it had become ubiquitous. It was standby weekend wear, rather than going-out wear. It's just that it isn't projecting a cutting-edge look any more." And according to another editor at Grazia, "One hundred

If you thought a little thing like Wimbledon's strict dress code (whites only on the tennis court!) would keep the Williams sisters from flaunting their cheeky personal style, think again.Read More »from Venus Williams Channels Tina Turner On The Court At Wimbledon
Venus Williams defeated Paraguay's Rossana De Los Rios in straight sets yesterday at Wimbledon, and she had a pretty powerful inspiration to help her to victory--none other than Tina Turner. The tennis star says the fringed white dress she chose for her first match was inspired by The Queen of Rock 'n Roll. "I think it's just a fun, elegant dress," she told reporters. "Obviously she's just an amazing, amazing artist, just a survivor. She reinvented herself. Plus she looks great. I've loved her forever. So the dress is really inspired by her."
Venus has never been one to shy away from high style on the court, even if it means raising a few eyebrows. Remember the illusion of her baring her bum with flesh-colored shorts at the Australian Open? Or the lace bordello-inspired dress that caused quite a

And that's where we come in with some brilliant shop your closet advice--get three new ways to wear your old sundresses, after the jump!Read More »from Shop Your Closet Time: 3 New Ways To Wear Last Summer's Sun Dress

Across the pond, the glamorous ladies who are lucky enough to call soccer stars their significant others are known as WAGs, short for "Wives and Girlfriends," and they're some of the spendiest women on the planet (their most visible representative, Victoria Beckham, reportedly owns $2 million worth of Birkin bags--'nuff said). They've been banned from the World Cup games by some coaches who find their preening too distracting, but that hasn't stopped the WAGs from strutting around South Africa in their finest designer duds.

An obnoxiously expensive handbag.
Victoria isn't the only one with a penchant for Hermes--Alex Curran, who's married to England footballer Steven Gerrard, has been spotted with a few pricey pieces of her own, and Chanel, Balenciaga, and Louis Vuitton have all put in as much time on the soccer field as a well-worn pair of cleats. The prerequisites for a WAG-worthy tote? It should be worth at least four

Summer's hottest accessory isn't a $500 shoe, a $1,200 handbag, or even a $29.99 straw hat. It's a set of bracelets that sell for about 16 cents each, and even serious trendsetters like Mary-Kate Olsen are getting in on the action...Read More »from Mary-Kate Olsen Wears Silly Bandz! Have You Ever Been Obsessed By A Trend Intended For Kids?
You may have spotted Silly Bandz, the rubber bracelets that come in a gajillion different shapes and are this season's ultimate symbol of BFF-hood, on the grade schoolers at your local mall. But a style.com reporter went on a resort appointment for The Row, the line of uber-luxe basics designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and spotted one half of the chic duo wearing some Silly Bandz of her own!
I always knew the Olsen twins were total trendoids, but I wouldn't have guessed that Mary-Kate's love of fads would extend to a trend intended for little kids! Have any of you ladies become infatuated with Silly Bandz, too? Do you get their appeal, or are you kinda baffled? (I have to admit, they remind me of my own elementary school obsessions with slap

Way back when I was working on Glamour's Big Book of Dos and Don'ts, I had the amazing opportunity to take a peek into all different people's closets. Even in the teeniest of spaces, I found amazing wardrobes and was so inspired to put together new outfits from my own clothes.

I've heard from tons of plus sized readers over the years saying the same thing--they feel their wardrobe options are limited because they think they need to stick with solid colors. Guess what, girls? You can rock pretty prints as well as anyone else! The gorgeously confident Amber Riley shows us how, after the jump.Read More »from Plus Sized And Afraid Of Prints? Amber Riley Shows Us How To Do It Right
Rule #1: Choose a slimming pattern. Horizontal stripes or prints with lots of spaces won't do your figure any favors. Instead, opt for something in a vertical stripe, like Amber's dress, which will help elongate your shape and make you look leaner. A big print with overlapping graphics will have the same effect.

Rule #2: Buy true to size. Some women think that if they wear a dress that's two sizes too big for them, they'll hide anything they don't want to be seen under all of that material. In fact, the exact opposite is true--a very large swath of patterned fabric will only make you

Remember this morning, when we reported on the orange dress incident at the Holland vs. Denmark soccer game, and I said my interest in the World Cup was "slim to none"? I take it back!

He's also starring in the Armani Jeans campaign--which thankfully doesn't require a shirt, either:
