Fact: When It girls wear ankle boots (even in the summer), they wear Saint Laurent. Why? Well, the brand’s boots are the perfect combination of trendy and classic, come in both black leather and of-the-moment suede (camel, of course) and, overall, simply exude cool. Not to mention that ever since creative director Hedi Slimane’s 2012 takeover, the brand has pretty much had a monopoly over edgy-chic style—which happens to be a great look for off-duty celebs. So, it’s no wonder that nine of our favorite fashionable ladies have been spotted out and about in the designer boots recently.
You probably already know COS—the Swedish mega-retailer, H&M counterpart, and celeb-favorite brand (Emma Stone loves this jacket). But are you shopping the label as much as say, Zara? Well you need to. And we rounded up five reasons to convince you. (Not that you need that much convincing).
Dressing for work is hard enough without the added element of serious summer heat. That’s why today, we’ve called on Anh Sundstrom, the stylish expert behind 9 to 5 Chic, to share her top 5 tips with us for dressing for work when it’s all too hot out. If you’ve ever checked out her blog (if not, you definitely should), you’d know that she’s a pro at infusing cool-girl style into a multitude of looks that are office-ready.
Barbecues, beach days, weddings, picnics, and a whole lot of sunshine. These are just some of the things that make summer fun-ner (not a word, but you get the point). One thing summer also ushers in is a host of sweet libations—aka booze—that leave us puffy and swollen. To prevent these unsightly side effects, make hydration and circulation top priorities. Alcohol can also be the culprit for poor sleep, cellular mineral imbalance, and what we like to call “impaired food judgment.” Prepare your body by properly hydrating 24 hours before your event, limit caffeine and salt, and load up on leafy greens and water-rich vegetables. If all else fails, these tricks should help you de-puff after the party ends.
Vanessa Hudgens earns serious style point for this charming lunch date ensemble she wore while out and about with boyfriend Austin Butler in New York City. Sure, her lace LWD was a sweet choice for the occasion, but we can’t help but notice that the starlet’s accessories game couldn’t have been more on-point. From her tied-up bandana to her black leather backpack, Hudgens’s look was all-around effortlessly cool.
In a seeming dissension from the normcore, minimalist look that swept the street style scene the last few seasons, “more” appears to be the watchword of the moment. More what, you ask? Everything. Prints, colors, layers, textures, and the like. Though this was widespread across F/W 2015 runways like Gucci and Miu Miu, we’re noticing the street style set is already adopting the look. Scroll down for ways to mix and clash your favorite pieces, and if you need to stock up, we’ve curated a shopping section, just for you.
Are you a Céline-obsessed girl without the Céline budget? Keep reading. We’ll take a guess you’re also into all-things minimal and cool and love masculine-inspired designs with just the right amount of tailoring. In other words, how one would describe the style of the coveted French fashion label. Since the exquisite designs cost a pretty penny and might not be in your budget right now, today we’re sharing the essentials you need to embrace the brand’s luxurious vibes under $200.
No doubt about it: You’ll be seeing a lot of the jumpsuit this summer. We spotted this minimalist and approachable white version that can act as the perfect base for buildable accessories—a great way to take your summer in the city look from a.m. to p.m. in a pinch.
The haute couture shows are like the Oscars of fashion shows—the pinnacle of the fashion community, if you will. Just. Plain. Gorgeous. While we already spilled the answers to your pressing questions about haute couture (what it actually is, the purpose, and who purchases it), we’ve got a few other fun facts up our sleeves in honor of the current shows in Paris.
Though Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are notoriously private, that doesn’t stop us from taking note every time they do step out in New York City. Though most of their looks are rather understated and monochrome as of late, there’s an effortless quality to their style that we find endlessly fascinating. As such, we thought we’d pull together the twins’ latest outfits for your equally Olsen-obsessed self.
Between working in fashion and spending an inordinate amount of time on Pinterest—where the wedding images are as plentiful as Audrey Hepburn quotes—I’ve been exposed to a large swath of wedding dress designs. And while I think many of them are pretty, I never had the intense squealing-with-delight reaction to a bridal gown as I did to say these Margiela tapestry boots or this silk Thakoon S/S 15 robe dress. I figured when I do get married some day I’d source a vintage gown or perhaps go for a non-bridal white dress from one of my favorite designers. That is until my colleague Nicole Kleist, casually g-chatted me a photo of a Lihi Hod wedding gown. Hod is an Israeli designer who was approached after design school by John Galliano to work with him in Paris at Dior. She now has her own line that feels within the realm of classic bridal style, but is touched with a fashion-forward aesthetic that immediately resonated with me.
It’s the bikini’s birthday today—yes, it was 69 years ago that Louis Reard created the two-piece—and naturally we’re celebrating with a little shopping. While the one-piece is certainly having a resurgence lately, we’ll never forget our fondness for bikinis. After all, how else are you supposed to get a tanned torso for your crop tops!?
Celebrities travel way more than the average person, so naturally our favorite A-listers provide a gold mine of airport outfit inspiration. The latest celebrity to seriously impress us? Kate Moss. Her layered look with a blazer, button-down shirt, and t-shirt feels like classic Moss—does anyone do bohemian-meets-rocker better?—but it was her shoes that truly won us over this time. We’ve always thought a sleek ankle boot is a smart choice if you want something a bit more elevated than a sneaker, but the addition of playful fringe takes her shoe game to another level.
Consider this relaxed weekender ensemble worn by our girl Kendall Jenner on a recent shopping trip in New York City. Though the Western belt and cowboy-inspired boots feel more appropriate for out on the range than in a big city, we nonetheless adore the look for whatever you have in store on a laid-back, dressed-down Sunday.
Get more mileage out of your favorite summer dresses by finding creative ways to style them from dawn to dusk. If you need a little inspiration (or want to do some good old-fashioned online shopping), scroll down to see how we'd transition three frocks from a.m. to p.m.
