Baby, it’s cold outside. No… not here in Southern Cali, but we’re feeling you east coast. So in honor of bundling up, we’re highlighting a major outerwear trend that arguably looks great on everyone. A camel coat.

It’s clearly the perfect way to stay warm and chic all at the same time. Here are some of our favorite celeb camel coat looks to further our cause and provide style inspiration.

The temperature is rising and your hemlines should be following suit. No, we don’t mean skirts, we mean this summer’s favorite staple: shorts.
Not exactly a new addition to your wardrobe, shorts have long been questionable fare when it came to office and evening wear and even for ladies past 30. Thank goodness that nonsense is over, because shorts are ruling the chic set, whether it’s cut off jean shorts and a rock-n-roll tee, tailored long short/blazer combos, or sexy silk shorts and a sheer printed blouse — shorts are the choice du jour of celebs, street style stars, and your most stylish BFF.
Here’s some of-the-moment inspiration to help you style your shorts throughout the season.
“What’s in a name?” Shakespeare obviously hadn’t recognized the fashion merits of monikers before he started knocking the importance of a name. Once reserved for towel sets and napkins, embroidered monograms are popping up on a slew of very fashionable wears by the likes of Burberry Prorsum, Rag and Bone and Fendi.
This spring’s must-have is your very own name emblazoned across a tee, jacket, handbag or necklace, letting the world know exactly who you are in a fit of stylish whimsy. Celebs like Kate Bosworth, Georgia May Jagger and Cara Delevigne have all been spotted sporting their initials and names on accessories, jackets and capes, perfectly illustrating this chic prep-school craze. So what are you waiting for? Get thee to the stitchery!
Your favorite jeans have never exactly been out of style, but judging from the street, the runway, and even the red carpet scene, denim is having a serious moment.
Spring 2014 goes beyond your boyfriend jeans, as denim makes waves on shirts, skirts, dresses… and yes… overalls. Surprisingly versatile, in a bevy of washes, cuts and styles, denim can go from downtown to uptown in the click of a stiletto heel — making it a perfect base to experiment with the high-end-is-low-end look that’s so of the moment right now. Below, we’ve collected a smattering of denim-spirational snaps devoted to the beloved textile showing the new staple jean pieces you’ll be wearing this spring.

As we prepare to turn the corner from January to February, our thoughts turn to what’s trending in the wonderful world of shoes. We’re sick to death of bundling up in boots, and judging from the latest spring collections, there’s a footwear trend a-coming that is just ripe for the winter-to-spring transition: the mule.
Seen on celebs like Kate Bosworth and Katy Perry, the mule is as stylish as it is easy to slip into. And did we mention universally flattering? Designers like Stella McCartney, Jason Wu, and Chloe have all offered up their version of the mule, each as leg-lengthenging and go-with-anything as the next. So in the spirit of spring, here’s a few of our personal favorite spring mule styles for you to ogle.
We can think of no better way to kick off the weekend then a preview of the long-awaited collaboration between Peter Pilotto and Target. After announced the pairing way back in September, the celeb-adored label left us all to speculate on what they might cook up for the superstores first 2014 reveal. Monday’s lookbook launch, featuring cocktail dresses, bikinis, bags, towels, and separates, did not disappoint.
The British brand is a long-time favorite of the actress/model set, counting fashion muses lil Kate Bosworth, Miranda Kerr, Kristen Stewart, and Emma Watson as fans of it’s bold, geometric prints and striking, bold colors and — judging from the preview (and the under $60 per piece price tag) — we think you will be too.

Wallflowers will have a heck of a time getting any attention this season, as metallics march their way into the wardrobes of tres chic “it” girls like Kate Bosworth, Cara Delevingne, Alexa Chung, and Kate Moss — and then steadily make their way into everyone else’s closets.
The holiday’s are a great time to pull-on a little extra gilding, and with the S/S 14 collections of such fashion darlings as Proenza Schouler, Altuzarra, Lanvin, and Givenchy featuring silver, bronze, and gold gilt jackets, skirts, and looks from designers are dominating F/W looks — and metallics seem to be leading the pack!
This isn’t Meadham Kirchhoff’s first time at the Topshop collaboration rodeo, but it may be the most spirited. The London-based label is pairing up with the fast-fashion giant again for a whimsical collection of clothing and accessories, set to hit store shelves on Nov. 21st. Designers Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff’s rule-breaking aesthetic is in full-effect with a line infused with colorful, fun and flirty pieces like mohair jumpers, glittery ruby platforms with marshmallow heels, and frilly baby-doll dresses.
The duo’s 2010 collection for Topshop was elegant and ghostly, reminiscent of a stylishly tricked-out Miss Havisham — all deconstructed jackets, floaty little dresses and oversized girlish tees, but this one — sitting at a super-sized 80-pieces — is expected to sit on a more modern spectrum, taking it’s inspiration from a fictional glam rock band quirkily dubbed, “The Cherrys.”
With the recent arrival of Kate Bosworth’s second turn at a Topshop collection, and the reveal that uber-model Kate Moss is also planning a sophomore effort with the store, we can be assured that fast-fashion’s love affair with collaborating is far from over — and that news will likely keep you warm all winter long.
