Rise and shine, Coachella-heads. Now that you’re finally showing signs of life after your eventful weekend in the dusty desert, have a seat (or you know, continue to lie down) and watch as we take you through some of our favorite looks from the first weekend of Coachella 2014. Bold prints, bindis, matchy-matchy sets, statement everythings, and 90s inspired duds galore… We gotta say, we’re pretty darn pleased with what we saw on the lawn. (You really did listen to us, didn’t you?) And since Coachella fashion always seems to set the trend for summer styles to come, we’d pay close attention if we were you, especially if you didn’t get the chance to head towards the sand this time around. For those of you who purchased tickets for weekend number two… No excuses!
Do you ever have that dilemma in the morning where you don’t quite know what to wear? You know, the one where you finally settle on a top only to realize that the bottoms to match are in the wash. So you do a little more digging and find out all of your bottoms are MIA. As a result, you’re running around the house (pantless) like a Cali girl at a Wildfox sample sale. Sigh, the sartorial struggle is so real, ladies, which is why we found the perfect go-to piece for those not-so-glamorous mornings of playing Where The Hell Are My (insert lost garment here). It’s a little something called a romper.
By definition, a romper is 1.) A person or a thing that romps. Okay, we’ll take that, but more importantly, it’s 2.) A loose one-piece garment combining a shirt or blouse and short, bloomerlike pants, worn by young children. Woah, before you get all cray-cray on us because you’re a “grown woman,” let’s not forget that it’s also 3.) a similar garment worn by women and girls for sports, leisure activity, etc. Almost got you there, didn’t we? :) In a nutshell, it’s a top attached to a bottom that you can just slip on and go, day or night. Do we really need to say more?
So the next time you’re having a fashion fumble, bust out a trusty romper and continue on with your day. We promise it’ll give you that extra five minutes to grab an iced chai tea latte or finally give you a chance to chat with the hottie next door (you can thank us later).
Are you ready to give this new take on a wardrobe staple a shot? Take some style tips from several hand selected fashionistas (courtesy of Pinterest) and check out our list of…
5 types of rompers that’ll save you time:
Be A Print-cess: We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again: don’t be afraid of prints! Whether it’s floral, chevron, or abstract, it will work on your romper. Just take it easy with everything else (say it with us: less is more).
In With The Bold: If today is the day that you’re finally going to ask your co-worker out for drinks or your boss for a little more time on that project, go bold. Your goal is to make a statement, so why not have an outfit to match? Hint: add a black blazer and some heels for something a little more work appropriate.
Ace It In Lace: If you’re still not convinced that rompers are sexy, just add lace. When you see him swoon over those traces of skin underneath, you’ll both be wondering why you didn’t slip one on sooner.
#LBR: You’ve heard of a little black dress, but what about a little black romper? For your next #GNO, switch out your go-to #LBD for a just-as-sexy #LBR to change things up a bit.
Dress It Down: It’s Lazy Sunday, and you want to pull off that I-woke-up-like-this look, like Beyonce? We’re right there with you. Slip on a basic romper (cotton, terry, denim, etc.) and have at it. The best thing about this kind of romper is that the possibilities are endless.

One of the biggest obstacles that young Hollywood faces is the ability to jump ship from child star to major star. Fortunately for Emma Watson, she’s waaay past that. Let’s face it, Hermione Granger is all grown up now, and life after Potter is looking pretty amazing. At the age of only 23, she’s already made some major waves in both Hollywood and the fashion world. The best part? She’s only just begun.
If the last Watson film you caught was a Harry Potter flick, please step out from under that rock you’ve been living under. Not only did our girl nail it as the free-spirited Sam in Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but she also very accurately portrayed the infamous ex-reality star Alexis Neiers as Nicki in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring. Let’s also not forget about Watson’s very memorable cameo in Seth Rogen’s This Is The End (in a nutshell, she threatens to kill Rogen and his buddies with a shovel). More recently, Watson rocked some pretty gnarly dreads in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, which has already grossed an estimated $44 million in its first weekend. If that doesn’t impress you, get this: rumor also has it that Sofia Coppola has Watson in mind to play Ariel in the live-action rendition of The Little Mermaid. Uh, is there a petition out there that’s rallying to make this happen? Because we already signed it. Yesterday.
As if homegirl’s hectic Hollywood schedule wasn’t enough, the actress-turned-fashionista has been turning heads with her classic-meets-modern-with-a-side-of-edge style. Burberry, Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, and Vera Wang are just a couple of heavy hitters that Watson has been sporting on and off the red carpet, and damn, does she make them look good. From tuxedos to cut-out numbers to wearing dresses with pants (game changer), Watson has risked it all for the love of fashion. Who would have thought that the frizzy-haired wizard we all knew would go from geek to chic overnight? Now that’s a spell we don’t want to break. Take a look at some of Emma Watson’s major moments in fashion below.

Wondering what a mechanic, a farmer, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air all have in common? It’s simple. They all sported what’s now considered a reoccurring, ahead-of-its-time trend. And trust us, this 90s (not to mention 80s, 70s, and 60s) throwback is just enough to make you want to bust out those old Olsen twin VHS’s. If you haven’t quite figured it out yet, we’re talking about a pair of classically cool, tried-and-true overalls.
While the bib-and-brace look was once only worn by the working class as protective gear, the fashion world eventually managed to rear in its pretty little head and turned this once drab look into a fab denim statement that just won’t go away (we’re not complaining). The best part is that anyone can strap in and give this trend a whirl. So if you plan on buckling down…
Here are six tips to reach overall perfection:
1. Keep it simple. A crisp tee (solid or striped) and sneaks or heels should complete an effortless look.
2. Go for glam. If you’re looking to dress things up, don a blouse, a blazer, a pair of heels, and some statement pieces, like a necklace or clutch, to bring it all together.
3. Fashionista vs. farmer. If your goal is to look more like a fashionista than a farmer (ahem, it should be), avoid traces of flannel or plaid. Unless, of course, you’ve got a killer pair of booties or heels to complement the look.
4. Be loud. Don’t be afraid of different textures, colors, or prints on your overalls. If the dungarees you’re sporting can make a statement all on their own, refer back to tip number one for the rest of your outfit.
5. Strap on, strap off. It’s totally okay to rock the strap on, strap off look. Not only will you be paying homage to the late, great Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, but your confidence will also shine through (even if you’re faking it).
off on. We don’t care what anyone says; wearing a top underneath is an absolute must. So, unless it’s for a special project, say an editorial photo shoot for Vogue, let’s leave that oh-so-bare look to the Chanel Imans and Karlie Klosses of the world.
Now that you’ve got this trend locked and loaded, take some cues from some of our handpicked street styled ladies and get to shopping!

Ahh. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the air is all kinds of fresh. And while the weather has been mighty unpredictable as of late, one thing is for certain today: Thursday, March 20, 2014, officially marks the First Day of Spring. So whether you actually have a spring break or you’re just happy that the sun is still out after work hours, you finally get to bust out that ol’ spring to-do list that you created months ago (you know, the one that you carved into your frozen window pane).
But wait, before you walk out of the house in your T-shirt and sweatpants again (frumpterable is in, we get it), take it from us and show off those gams instead. After all, nothing says spring like a fun and flirty frock. To help you get a head start on what’s waiting for you outdoors, here are six different dresses for six different springtime destinations. Word of advice: get out there now because who knows how long this glorious weather will last. Here’s to hoping that Mother Nature really got it together this time!

Thought the days of phys ed and organized sports were long gone? Ha, think again. Huddle up, ladies! There’s a new trend on the field, and she’s taking cues from our glory days as MVP. Okay, so we weren’t exactly MVP, but we did enjoy wearing our boyfriend’s varsity football jacket and get excited about a new soccer jersey every season (eh, close enough).
From baseball caps to joggers to track shorts to lucky number jerseys, we think it’s safe to say that the sporty luxe trend is in full effect. Who doesn’t love an anyone-can-do trend that flawlessly takes shape day or night? Plus, it totally gives you a legit reason to steal some duds from your boyfriend. If you’re still not sure you have what it takes, not to worry, girl; you’ve got a pep squad cheering you on (us) and sartorial inspiration from some heavy hitting game changers below. Readyyyy, break!

Pop quiz! Name the ultimate go-to staple piece that everyone should have at least one (or five) of in their closet. No, not that rhinestone encrusted T-shirt with your boo’s name on it (toss it). No, not those cropped and flared gaucho pants from circa early 2000s either (gross). Anything? Give up? A pair of plain ol’ denim, that’s what! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to conclude that a great pair of jeans can go with literally every single top in your closet. The best thing about ‘em? There are so many different styles to choose from! If you lookin’ for some assistance in the versatility department, take a seat and listen–er, keep reading. Here it is, right here, right now: three different outfits, three different events, one pair of jeans. This time around, we chose a pair of trusty high-waisted skinny jeans to style. This ain’t witchcraft, ladies. We pinkie promise.
Glam Rock Girl –
You just scored tickets to a 30 Seconds To Mars concert, and you’re not sure what to wear? Start warming up your vocal chords (ya know, to sing with the band) and pair your high-waisted skinny jeans with some combat boots and a comfy, fashion-forward tank. Just don’t forget to add the right amount of edge, like a spiky statement piece necklace, a studded beanie, and a pop of color clutch.
Alluring Accomplice –
It’s your BFF’s birthday bash, so of course you’ve accepted the role of being her right hand woman for the evening. Step up to the plate and pair your high-waisted skinnies with a pair of nude pumps, a flowy and feminine blouse, and some statement accessories (and lip color) to compliment the look. After all, they don’t call you a super sexy sidekick for nothing!
Flea Market Chic –
Going to a flea market (or shopping altogether) is a fashion show in and of itself. You gotta look your best, but your outfit should look like it took two minutes to assemble (the struggle is real, girls). Pair your high-waisted skinnies with a simple bodysuit, a kimono, and some chunky heels. Don’t stop there though; some simple accessories, like a layered necklace and a fringe tote, should complete the effortless look.
1. Tribal Element Fringe Kimono, 2. Close Fit Short Sleeve Body Suit, 3. Spike N Stud Layered Necklace, 4. High-Waisted Skinny Jeans 5. Pardon My Fringe Handbag, 6. Hi Scale Chunky Faux Wood Platforms

With the 86th Annual Academy Awards rapidly approaching, we think it’s the perfect opportunity to honor one of our style crushes, Jennifer Lawrence. At the age of just 23, our girl is nominated for her third Oscar for her portrayal as Rosalyn in American Hustle. Haven’t seen American Hustle just yet? Well, you may remember Lawrence from her roles in box office hits such as X-Men: First Class (she showed off a perfectly toned blue body), Silver Linings Playbook (she got her mack on with Bradley Cooper and earned her very first Oscar), and, of course, The Hunger Games movies in which Lawrence not only kicks ass (literally), but also proves to the world that strong female leads in film are totally in. Her most recent major move? Homegirl killed it in Dior’s S/S 2014 campaign. Suh-woon.
Talented, sexy, successful, hilarious, and not to mention real… We could go on and on. So J. Law, if you’re reading this… We’re rooting for you, girl! But if you don’t take home that hunk of metal this time: A) You already have one waiting for you at home and B) we’ve got a spot on our couch with your name on it (and tons of junk food for you to scarf down with us). So we’d say it’s a win-win kind of sitch anyway.
Take a look below at some of our favorite J. Law moments in fashion:
And our top five favorite quotes from the funny girl herself:
1. On red carpet hunger: “I’m seeing you talk, and all I’m thinking about is me pissed that I didn’t get fries.” (to MTV at the 2013 Oscars)
2. On her “bouncing” assets: “I think people are fascinated with breasts that bounce. They are so used to seeing [fake ones]. People are confused [that mine bounce]! My breasts have a life of their own.” (The Sun)
3. On exercise: “I hate saying, ‘I like exercising’ – I want to punch people who say that.” (Glamour)
4. On the bowl of fan questions: “I thought it was gonna be food. It’s just… words.”
5. On how she’d describe herself: “Very well-rounded, and practically perfect.” (The Late Show With David Letterman)

If you’re anything like us, then you know what it’s like to be a girl on the go. Brunch with your BFFs in the morning, class and studying in the late afternoon, and a hot date in the evening (not to mention a gym sesh every now and then, too). #LBH, busy girls like us have it rough sometimes! But the hustle stops here. Yup, we’re about to make your life a little easier, fashionably speaking. We’ve got three different outfits that will take you from day to night with the switch of a shoe. Pay close attention, ladies, because we’re only going to share this with you once.
City Life – After a long day at your new fashion gig, the last thing you want to do is head home to change your outfit. If you’ve got after work plans, we recommend slipping on a statement shift dress and a glamorous necklace for a look that will easily transition over to the evening. Shoe-vice: Wear fashion-forward flats during work hours and then change into cut-out heels before you meet up with your man for dinner.
Homebody - You’re finally home for the weekend, so why not spend the day catching up with your family? After all, there’s no place like home! Take it from us, a flowy blouse and a pair of boyfriend jeans is the perfect transitional outfit. Shoe-vice: Wear a pair of fierce and ferosh flats in the day (we’re sure you’d love to make your sis a little shoe envious) and then slip into something strappy and stiletto before hosting a mini reunion for your high school buds in the evening.
1. Single Girl Chunky Heels, 2. Surplice Front Woven Blouse, 3. Luxe Tux Laux Leather Pants, 4. Glitz And Grunge Snap Bracelet, 5. Structured Build Faux Leather Purse, 6. Fan Out Faux Nubuck Lace-Up Booties
Shop Girl - Obvi, one of our favorite things to do is go shopping on our downtime, even if it’s just for an hour or two (or seven). If you’ve got somewhere to be after, we recommend donning something sleek, sexy, and all black (black is totes the new black). Shoe-vice: Wear a low, chunky heel that you can rush from store to store in and then slip into a tall pair of leg lengthening booties for your evening plans.

If you’re Facebook official with your significant other, good for you. We hope he or she is planning an oh-so-special day that you deserve. If you’re flyin’ solo, don’t take it personal. This is the perfect excuse for a single ladies bash with your best buds (TFTI!). Wherever the day takes you and whatever look you’re going for, we’re here to help you look
your best smokin’ HOT. So quit lip lockin’ or moping around for a second and get to shopping! Need a little outfit inspiration? We’ve got you covered.

C’mon, admit it, we know you’re a huge fan of the television series Pretty Little Liars. It’s our guilty pleasure! Who doesn’t love a show about a crazed maniac playing an endless game of cat-and-mouse with a bunch of cool and stylish girls? Those are a pair of stilettos that we definitely don’t want to be in. The drama keeps us at the edge of our seats, the guys are hot, and the fashion is on point. And after a much too long hiatus, Season 4 is finally back, and we are more than ready to continue coveting each of the girls’ styles. Plus, we think we may find out, once and for all, who the hell A really is (ha, yeah right!). Whether you’re an Aria, Hanna, Spencer, or Emily, we’re sure that there’s a little liar in everyone.
