  • How to Dress like a Paris it Girl

    by Natalie Matthews



    Some of our favorite looks at Paris Fashion Week don't even happen on the runways. Instead, they hail from a certain group of front-row females who crop up during the week's fancy dinners and after-parties, too: Paris' It girls. From Chanel-incarnate Caroline Sieber (who wears Karl's creations as often as we do blue jeans) to impossibly perfect-haired Lou Doillon (her beach waves are insane), each one's got a look worth studying. Above, click through to see our favorite It girls' go-to styles-and shop similar, currently available looks.

  • Five Ways to Wear Orange and Black Without Looking like a Jack-O'-Lantern

    by Alison Syrett Cleary



    Rather than tattoos, back talk or Day-Glo hair, the only way I've ever really defied my mother by ignoring her by-the-book fashion advice. It started in first grade, when I insisted on layering clashing plaid flannels instead of following her matchy-matchy policy, progressed to sweaters with shorts ("Alison, pick a season!") and followed me right through into adulthood. I still have a thrilling sense of rebellion tied to wearing white jeans after Labor Day or tossing on clashing prints-although a ban on a holiday color combination outside its designated day might be the rule I enjoy flouting the most.



    Besides giving me that "Imma gonna do what I want" rush, pairing shades that might otherwise seem theme-y makes a bold, confident statement. It says that not only am I unafraid to wear Christmas/Fourth of July/whatever hues on the other 364 days of the year, but I have the style to pull them off, too. With Halloween just four weeks away, I've already come up

  • 5 Classy and Cool Ways to Wear Platform Pumps

    by Alison Syrett Cleary



    It's been a rough few years for the platform pump. Although it had a moment as fashion's favorite heel half a decade ago, the style's since been adapted as the unofficial footwear of Real Housewives, Jersey Shore fist pumpers and girls who own more bandage dresses than bras. That's a hard reputation to shake.



    Even so, I can't bring myself to part with the perks of stack-soled heels: the boost of height that doesn't hurt my feet, the sturdiness that makes my legs look extra long and skinny, the way I don't have to have them resoled every few weeks. To see me through until platform pumps loose the reality star stigma, I've mastered the art of finding pairs cool enough to convert even the biggest single sole snobs. Click through the slideshow above for the first five things I look for.

  • Lipstick Trends Through the Decades: A Colorful Walk Down Memory Lane

    by Sarah Ferguson



    I bought my first big-girl lipstick during college. I was perusing the cosmetics floor at Bloomingdales when a sales associate at the Chanel counter convinced me I had the perfect face for red lipstick. I had never really thought about wearing lipstick before. To me, it seemed like a chore and symbolized the working world-a world I was not ready to be a part of just yet. But after agreeing to sit in her chair and test out some options, I suddenly understood its appeal. I walked away with a golden tube that cost way more than a broke student could afford, but it's a purchase I wouldn't regret.



    Lipstick quickly became my "thing". I liked how it could instantly make me feel grownup, sexy, badass, put together-or all of the above, all at once. Perhaps this power is why lipstick has remained relevant and dare I say it, culturally significant throughout every decade since its rise to popularity among the masses in the 1920s.

  • BREAKING: Marc Jacobs is Leaving Louis Vuitton

    by Alison Syrett Cleary

    The Louis Vuitton show in Paris this morning was more than a preview of the brand's Spring/Summer 2014 collection; it also served as a send-off for Marc Jacobs, who plans to end his 16-year tenure as the company's creative director at the end of this year. Indeed, as we speculated last Monday, the designer is leaving the French fashion house to focus on his namesake brand and its forthcoming IPO.

    Although Marc routinely delivers spectacular productions under ordinary circumstances, yesterday's event was truly on another level. Rather than a straight catwalk, the models mazed their way through an elaborate set comprised of theatrical elements that nodded to LV's most memorable runway presentations, like a carousel inspired by its Spring/Summer 2012 show and the eerie line of seedy hotel doors from last February. Then, of course, there were the dark, dramatic clothes-sheer bodysuits, baggy trousers, big-shouldered boleros,

  • Inspired by Street Style and Celebs, 31 Perfect October Outfits to Shop Now

    by Natalie Matthews



    October is an awesome time, weather-wise: chilly enough to order a hot chocolate but still pleasant enough to linger outside while drinking it. (What's better than that? Nothing, except maybe doing the same thing with a pumpkin spice latte.) And it's the best of both worlds for your getting-dressed process, too: you can go bare-legged without it being weird, but you won't look like a season-pusher if you wear your new favorite coat up top, either.



    October's got options, and its chilly-but-not-uncomfortable state means you can keep most of your wardrobe in play. That's pretty awesome, but if the seemingly endless possibilities (shorts paired with sweaters! ankle boots with sundresses! light fall jackets paired with everything!) aren't enough to get you excited about the next few weeks' worth of outfits, we've got you covered, as always. Above, dozens of amazing October-ready outfits to copy now-or 31 of them, to be exact, one for each day-culled from our

  • Looks like 'Ugly Shoes' Are Sticking Around for Another Season

    by Elana Fishman



    Have you noticed a crazy amount of Birkenstocks-and possibly even Tevas, those Velcro-strapped sporty sandals beloved by outdoorsy dads across the globe-on the feet of fashion people lately?



    You're not alone-and you'd better get on board if you aren't already, because it looks like the "ugly shoe" trend will be sticking around for at least another year. Back during the first few days of NYFW, we noticed a preponderance of hippie-type sandals on the runway; as the New York shows came to a close and the European collections kicked off, we continued to spot tons of offbeat platforms and chunky soles on the catwalks, proving this particular trend has international appeal.



    Click through above to see eight other shows that offered up oddball, off-kilter and remarkably orthopedic-looking shoes. Now, who's ready to slip into something a little more comfortable?

  • The Prepared Girl's Guide to Deskside Beauty Essentials

    by Sarah Ferguson



    If you've ever spilled coffee all over your outfit on the way to work, devoured a tuna sandwich right before a big presentation or caught a cold from a contagious cubicle mate, then you understand the importance of a well-stocked desk drawer.



    Thanks to unfortunate experiences like these, I've amassed a solid stash of items essential for workday survival. I've got gum, disinfectant spray, aspirin, stain remover, plastic utensils, snacks and all of the above life-saving beauty products at the ready at all times. But shhh! Don't tell my co-workers…I'm not sharing!

  • It's Fall, so Let's All Dress like Ali MacGraw in Love Story

    by Elana Fishman



    The 1970 romantic drama Love Story, arguably one of the most tear-jerking and tragic films of the last century, tells the tale of two star-crossed student lovers who hail from extremely different backgrounds. Oliver Barrett IV (Ryan O'Neal), a wealthy Harvard jock, falls head over heels for quippy (though squarely middle-class-gasp!) Radcliffe College coed Jennifer Cavalleri (Ali MacGraw). The two eventually marry-against the wishes of Oliver's father, of course-and without the Barrett family's financial support, the couple soon fall upon hard times. When terminal illness enters the picture, their situation grows even more dire-and to reveal any more, if you haven't yet seen the movie, would spoil one of the most heartbreaking cinematic finales ever.


    Of course, despite her doomed situation, MacGraw's Jenny Cavalleri is one seriously stylish screen heroine. Favoring collegiate classics like pleated skirts, camel coats and textbook-friendly duffle bags, she's one of
