Rihanna has good reason to shine bright like a diamond! On July 31, a London judge ruled in the popstar's favor in a lawsuit she brought against British fast-fashion retailer Topshop for featuring a photo of her on a graphic T-shirt without the singer's consent. The UK-based retailer isn't the only clothing company to get into hot water over controversial cotton tees recently. In fact, companies seem to get stuck in similarly sticky situations on the reg. Check out some of the most scandalous, slimy and sexy T-shirt's to hit the market and stir the pot in the past few months.- Lauren Tuck, Shine StaffRead More »from The Top 10 Most Controversial T-Shirts of 2013...So Far

While we can't give you a surefire cure for first-day jitters, we do know how to make going back to school a little less daunting. The answer? A totally cool, confidence-boosting outfit. Comfort is key, of course, but so is making a stellar impression and nothing can make you feel ready to tackle a new year quite like the right look.

Courtesy (3)Happy August! In honor of the eighth month of the year we rounded up eight pieces of jewelry featuring August's official stone, peridot. While some may confuse this gem with the popular emerald, peridot leans more towards lime than deep green. If you love the hue, no need to feel green with envy - anyone can rock these sparkling picks.

POPSUGAR FashionSource: Sweet Now-and-Later Styling to Master the Tricky Change of Seasons
Summer's spoiled us with a pretty minimalist dress code - you need (and want) little else on your body but a sundress and sandals - but Fall's cooler days ahead are about to change our one-step style. To ease through tougher transitional times (we're talking weather here), we've cultivated a bit of a styling workshop: five awesome pieces that are just as easy to dress now as they are later. Think silky button-downs and a staple maxi skirt. And if you don't already have them in your closet, then we highly recommend investing now. Need the proof? Step inside for eight season-defying finds and 16 awesome ways to wear them.

Even the most modern brides and grooms often find themselves in classic ensembles not so different from those worn by their counterparts generations ago. That's because when choosing wedding clothes, couples are guided not only by fashion, but also by tradition and a dose of decorum befitting the event. Use this wedding etiquette as a guide to wardrobe choices based on the time of day and the level of a wedding's formality. But, remember, it's your big day and you can wear whatever your hearts desire.
Daytime vs. Evening WeddingsRead More »from How to Dress for Any Style of Wedding
A daytime celebration is held before 6 p.m., while an evening wedding is held after 6 p.m. or begins a bit before and continues well into the night. The question of formality is less straightforward; it is not a single detail that gives a wedding its style, but all of the elements combined.

I bet horse rugs, mosquito netting and old shearing combs don't come to mind when you think wedding dress.
By Simone Hill for TheKnot.com
It sounds insane, but apparently Australia-based fashion designer Kirsty Mackenzie has created a wedding gown made entirely of materials found on a farm, taking the term "rustic chic" to a whole new level.
More from The Knot: Search 500+ new wedding dresses
A rundown of what she used for the dress:
• Heavy canvas (for the skirt)
• Mosquito netting (for the sheer overlay)
• Rope (for stitching on the bodice)
• Rip stop from horse rugs (for ruching on the bodice)
• A gold spray-painted speaker cover (as the base of the veil fascinator)
• Bullet shells (to accent the fascinator)
• Shearing combs, bolts, blades and wire (for the bouquet)
The plan is to show off her aptly named "Shot Gun Wedding Dress" in a Wearable Art contest held in Western Australia later this summer. I'll stay away from that bouquet toss, thank you very much.

Jessica Szohr, Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler were a few of the fab stars who stopped by American Eagle's flagship store to celebrate the launch of Rock Your Runway. Guests played on the graffiti wall and jammed out to celeb DJs while snacking on movie-themed treats. We caught up with Jessica and chatted summer beauty tips, closet staples and more!
OK!: Your makeup looks flawless! Any beauty suggestions on how to beat the heat while still looking glam?
Jessica Szohr: I feel like I always use the elixir by Caudalie-it's a very refreshing spray. If you do wear a little bit of makeup it keeps it on without looking too oily. It's just amazing!
OK!: With fall right around the corner, how can readers transfer their summer wardrobe into next season?
JS: I think when it comes to fall layer-especially if you're in New York or a city where it starts to get pretty cold. Even though it can be a summer thing with bright colors, off tone it with Earth tones. It can work even if it's aRead More »from OK!

The singer looks cool in a patterned jumpsuit
Who: Solange Knowles
Where: The Fader Music Festival in Brooklyn.
When: Monday, July 29th
What: A woodblock print Zero + Maria Cornejo jumpsuit and Nicholas Kirkwood heels.
Why: Working a head-to-toe print on a covered onesie is no easy task. Knowles makes it look cool, but pulled together, something our beauty director, Jane Larkworthy, knows how to do, too. She wore this exact jumpsuit a week before as part of #30DaysofJane. (Follow @Wmagazine on Instagram for more of Jane's daily looks.)
