Smoking Slippers: Instead of sporting ballet flats through fall, opt for this male-inspired shoe, which comes in literally every design you can think of. They’re comfy to wear, have a little bit of a heel, and depending on the style you choose, can easily be a statement piece in your daily ensemble.
Cap-Toe Pumps: Regular high heels are boring. But a cap-toe detail adds a bit of zest to your mundane pair. There’s also no need to pile on the jewelry if your pumps are already sporting a metallic cap-toe.
Wedge Sneakers: Fact: the sporty shoe was a best-seller this spring and a fun alternative to your usual pair of Converse, Vans, or Superga shoes. Plus, the wedge gives you flattering height in the most casual way. Consider this your fall secret weapon of style.
Colorblock Heels: The colorblock heels from spring are transforming themselves for fall with color-contrasting soles. Add a pop of color by just slipping these on and voila! You can instantly dress your entire outfit around this eye-catching pair.
Chelsea Boots: While you could easily bring back your motorcycle-style boots for the fall, we prefer this slip-on, Mod-inspired shoe, which is just as appealing as flats or in heel-form. This type of boot is effortlessly cool and can be worn with nearly everything, from comfy leggings to pleated skirts.

I’m not one to use silver chains in an outfit – I am really a jeans and shirt kind of lady. This is why the outfit look book above is just perfect for me. The colors are also perfect for the weather lately – lots of rain and grey cloudy skies. The hint of pink, my favorite color, is a great accent!
1. The right fit always flatters. Impeccably tailored pieces look expensive, no matter what they cost. If you have time to learn how to hem and sew, go for it—if not, strike a deal with your tailor or dry cleaner to fix some of your existing clothes in bulk.
2. Style and trends are not mutually exclusive. As long as you know what works for you, you’ll always be chic—don’t feel pressure to incorporate of-the-moment trends into your look if they’re not you, or try them in non-threatening increments, like in your jewelry and accessories.
3. When in doubt, buy a dress. Think about it: you’re more likely to wear a new dress than, say, a new pair of shorts and a top that can be mixed and matched. Dresses make more of a statement, and are super easy to throw on.
4. Your personal style is your calling card. Celebrities and designers alike have admitted to sticking to a “uniform” of the styles that flatter their own body. Don’t be afraid by the connotation: this is not your grade school wool jumper we’re talking about. Your signature look is what sets you apart from the rest.
5. Shop often, buy sparingly. If you know what’s out there and see that pieces are marked down every day, you’ll be less tempted to buy immediately, leaving room for the stuff you actually want and ending up with only the best in your wardrobe.
Taylor Swift’s Camelot Style is just so her – sweet and dainty. I would love to be able to pull a look like that off but I am scared I’d look like a granny! So while I was browsing http://equote.com for low cost insurance, I decided to search for tips to mixing and matching prints to achieve this look!
Think vintage floral prints, nostalgic polka-dot bikinis, pinup silhouettes, classic leather accessories, silky headscarves, and a great pair of go-with-everything Ray-Bans.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match. In this case, the more, the merrier. Take your polka-dotted bikini top and amplify its dimension with a striped short, or pair a floral-printed sheath with an equally quirky headscarf. We like to take liberties with our print-on-print approach, especially when it comes to weekend flair.
Stick to old-school shapes. Sure, you can show some skin (hello, gingham-printed cropped blouses) and you can adhere to a form-fitted MO. What we’re referring to is that pinup girl silhouette — bustier-enhancing tops, high-waisted bottoms, and so on. Own your sexy shape and let your inner Marilyn Monroe shine through.
It’s all about the Americana approach. Seriously. From wide horizontal stripes in navy blues and cherry reds to crisp white tie-front button-ups, you’ll instantly evoke a retro vibe just by erring on the side of styling with classic pieces.
Keep your accents minimal. You’ll notice Taylor hasn’t gone overboard on the accessorizing front — and there’s reason for that: you just don’t have to. A slick leather crossbody bag, in neutral tones, of course, simple sandals, black sunglasses, and stud earrings are enough to provide that holiday-weekend polish without landing you in overdressed territory.
Statement shoes over show-stopping jewelry.
Pair short skirts with thick tights and sturdy boots.
Temper floral print dresses with neutral olive parkas or leather jackets.
Mix and match slouchy layers with flirty skirts.
If necklaces aren’t your thing, try lots of bangles or chunky cocktail rings instead.
Take playful printed dresses from day to night by changing shoes.
Don’t be afraid to pile jewelry on all in one place—bangles, necklaces, rings.
Avoid overly processed hair and bronzers. Go natural—loose locks and bare skin with just a pop of blush.
When layering, try structured blazers instead of sweaters for an edgier look.
Ditch the ginormous “It” bag in favor of small crossbody bags or chain strap purses.
Pair slim fit jeans with boots and blazers.
Try plaid slim fit tops with black jeans and flats for daytime dates.
Don’t be afraid to add fun embellishments like fur (faux is fine!) and metallic to add interest.
Men’s Leather Caps were initially part of the Coach collection from years back but somehow they have graduated and went with bags, eyeglasses and wallets. It’s a good thing though that they are bringing back old models of bags through the Coach Legacy Collection!
When one thinks classic handbag, Coach comes to mind immediately — it’s one of the most searched purses on the Internet.) The leather goods maker started making fashionable, durable bags in 1941 and became a pioneer in color when they released their first blue bag in 1962.
The 71-year-old company has decided to freshen up its image and brand. This fall, look for Coach’s newest collection, Legacy, a modern collection inspired by iconic styles from their archive. Some silhouettes are updates of their most popular designs, while others are inspired by classics and ﬁnished with Coach details. You can get an iconic Large Duffle or a Medium Candace Carryall (a customer favorite) for $398.
Here are all its colors — take your pick!
I love this get up from Jessica Biel!
Back in June at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, Jessica Biel achieved a perfectly preppy-cool look with green jeans, a navy blazer and leopard smoking flats. Get the look for less with denim from LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s plus finds from DSW, Forever 21 Piperlime.com and more.

I really am digging the ombre hairstyle these days. How I wish I can pull something like off. I have curls right now and if my hair was not that damaged from the digi perm, I know my curls would look great with this ombre color. I am actually pinning a lot of ombre hairstyles over at Pinterest right now, even Lecteurs MP3. It is not as edgy (and funky) as dip-dyed hairstyles for sure.
