While the wedding may be the main event, we want you to look (and feel) as polished the night before the real thing, too. Even if that polish manifests itself in a dress slightly more offbeat than classic or more modernist-cool than traditional, it's all about striking the right style balance between sophisticated and less formal at the wedding rehearsal and dinner. And while the occasion certainly doesn't warrant anything over-the-top fancy, it's not really the time to take your sexiest LWD for a test drive either. So, we've rounded up some of our favorite dresses (the prettiest white shifts, dreamiest lace confections, and a few quirkier nonwhite options, too) perfect for the wedding rehearsal — and beyond. Click on to see and shop them all now.
Our Friday just got a little happier, thanks to Piperlime's Spring sale. With the retailer's sweet discounts (we're talking up to 40 percent off), we're kicking off the weekend with a virtual shopping trip — stocking up on sweet dresses, striped tees, white denim, and cool Spring leather. In short, if you've been looking to cross a few things off your seasonal wish list, this might just be the place to do it. Without further ado, click on for our favorite pieces — then shop them for yourself (before someone else does!).
Ruffles can be beautiful and feminine, but they can also come off as really young-looking, too. Translation: we're culling inspiration from the Spring '13 runways — think Chloé, Givenchy, and Saint Laurent — to ensure that when we take on this season's ruffles, it looks sophisticated and fresh. To prove our point — and show you how to do it — we've got four different ruffled-up outfits to wear now. Watch on for all the details!

Part girl-next-door, part glamazon, Brooklyn Decker's the kind of girl you'd love to hate if she wasn't so downright likeable. She's made the transition from Sports Illustrated cover girl to Hollywood actress seamlessly (and seemingly overnight); she's wife to Andy Roddick; and she might just be one of our favorite Twitter feeds to follow, too. Add to that a red carpet résumé that mixes cool-girl labels like Proenza Schouler one minute, then draws from Valentino or Giambattista Valli the next, and you can see how Decker has quickly become one of our favorite style setters. In honor of her 26th birthday today, we're celebrating with a look at 26 of her best red carpet moments thus far. Click on and take note: this is just the beginning for the very talented (and very stylish) Brooklyn Decker!
You may recognize the label Issa London by its first claim to fame: Kate Middleton wore its royal blue wrap dress on the day her engagement to Prince William was announced. But come Aug. 6, there will be another reason why Issa London proves a growing household name. The London-based brand is collaborating with Banana Republic on a nearly 40-piece safari heritage-inspired collection, which will include clothing and accessories. What exactly does that mean for us? Think zebra-print kimono dresses, bold pebbled leather envelope clutches, gold chain necklaces, and leather-wrapped bangles, with prices ranging from $40 to $150. While we've yet to see the official capsule collection, here's your first look at the sketches, as well as some of our favorite Issa London runway moments thus far.
Miranda Kerr, who signed on as the face of Mango in the Spring, is back — and she's the star of the brand's Summer '13 campaign. Shot by photographer duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Kerr shows off a lineup of perfectly styled ensembles that makes us wish for warmer days, the kind that instantly makes you think, "I want to dress like her." Among the standouts? A crisp white blazer, the perfect floral jacket, and printed pants we can't wait to live in. Click on to see the complete Mango Summer '13 campaign here.
From the launch of Kate Young's party-dress collection for Target to the opening of Warby Parker's flagship store in NYC, this week was one for celebrations. In between parties, though, we kept a running photo log of our favorite Fall '13 collections. Think statement jewelry, bright layers (yes, for Fall), and a red leather moto jacket we're already daydreaming about styling. All this in our Instagram highlights from the week, right this way.

So it's not the weekend (quite yet), but that doesn't mean we can't get started on planning our perfect Saturday errand-running look right now. It's never too early to cull inspiration, and Emma Roberts served us up with a doozy while shopping in LA. Not only did she hit all the right notes with her frayed black Citizens of Humanity jeans, silky white tie-neck blouse, and leopard-print Vans, but she also validated our obsession with Loeffler Randall's floral Mini Rider ($395) bag, which we lovingly featured as one of our April Must Haves. The crux of Emma's daytime-cool ensemble lies in its sheer effortlessness. She pairs simple, everyday basics with exciting accessories, and plays up her crisp black and white look with fun florals and leopard-print pieces. We're hooked on this look — and if you are too, just click below to shop similar pieces now.
