Forget those berries and cherries, pineapple is having “a moment,” popping up on everything in the guise of complicated tropical prints and solo on T-shirts, jewelry and swimsuits. Pineapples are to this season what owls were to Fall 2011—the single thing to adorn oneself with to reference an air of pop cultural whimsy. There is even a pineapple shaped handbag from the Queen of fun fashion Charlotte Olympia and a pineapple iPhone case from ASOS. Need we say more? Probably not, but to prove a point, take a look at these pineapple inspired styles by Rebecca Minkoff, Free People, Kenzo, Zara, Topshop and Peter Som for Kohls and try to deny that this fruit is the season’s tastiest must-have.read more
Let’s give a resounding “thank you” to the taste-makers for this one — the fashion sweatshirt is here.
No need to reserve this comfy, cozy, stay-at-home staple for lazy Sundays when heavy-hitters like Givenchy, Kenzo, Rebecca Minkoff, and Matthew Williamson are all offering up a decidedly haute take on the sweatshirt. Peppered with flowers, pop art, and a variety of lithographs, the luxe sweatshirt is a great way to bring weekend casual directly to the week-long grind, by paired it with skinny pants, an envelope mini, or a full skirt. This must-have winter 2013 trend is already a fave with it-girls Jessica Alba, Gisele Bundchen, and Cara Delevingne — here’s some inspiration on how to pull-off the sweatshirt pull-over.

Pastels have extended their welcome way past spring and summer, to pretty up the classic black pant or pencil skirt and fashions most stylish set are taking note. From Carven to Chloé, Madewell to ASOS — haute couture’s most of-the-moment labels are offering up a slew of separates adorned in the lighter side of the color spectrum, creating a perfectly feminine Fall look.read more
