Sometimes, it's all in the details — enter Alexa Chung sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week, where her pretty lace panels caught our eye. It's a delicate detail that reveals a hint of skin, but in a much more ladylike and demure way than a cutout. They're not too big or bold, just little lace insets that take her LND from simple to simply romantic. Wear them on tees and pretty dresses for day; for night, they'll sultry up a minidress or tank.
There isn't a trend that lends more class than Fall's favorite color: camel. This season, camel pieces are your key to elegant, classic dressing, whether it's a hint of the rich hue on a belt or a pair of shoes, or a head-to-toe camel look a la Chloe's Fall ad campaign. If you're feeling the trend, click through for 10 Fab ways to try it out, then further the camel cool when you pair it with a contrasting red or fabulous leopard print.
With Fall gaining momentum, it's time to turn our attention to the trends at hand. First on our list, the military-inspired craze. Military chic has been on our radar for a while, but with colder weather ahead, the look should incorporate heftier jackets, pants, dresses, and bags. It doesn't have to be a head-to-toe look — in fact, it shouldn't be — even the details make an impression. Step inside for 10 key pieces that speak to the style.
We have hit September! Yes! My jacket, layering, and boot-loving self is cheering quite eagerly for the upcoming season of Fall. And yes, I'm aware it's still 95 degrees outside, but at least the month title "September" makes me seem a bit less ridiculous when all I want to do is make posts about sweaters and boots, right? I'm just so in love with the season of Fall because it's just the right amount of cold where you don't have to look like you just got off of a ski lift to stay warm, but you can certainly break out all of your favorite jackets to wear! So, when I begin posting cold-weather clothes like a mad man (or woman for that matter) over the next couple of weeks, don't say you weren't warned.
Lace can feel overtly sexy for day, but not so with the lacy tee. This is a top that makes its way effortlessly from day to night. It's light, funky, and a little ladylike, but never too dainty, especially with a boxy or cropped fit. We like it just the way it is, paired with denim, and maybe a tank underneath if flashing skin isn't your thing. Either way, this is an all-over lace look — and we're all over it.
Besides being mesmerized by Drew's metallic Malandrino at last night's Going the Distance premiere, we also couldn't stop staring at her tribal wear: the perfect jewels. Her tribal hoops add an exotic flair, without being over the top. The vibe's modern-eclectic, dressed up or down, though I'm partial to the edgy pairing with evening wear. Wear them wrapped or beaded — we love the contrast with gold and silver metals. Always a bold choice.
Glee cutie Lea Michele stepped out for the BlackBerry Torch Party last night in LA. But to be honest, we're a little less about the phone and all about Lea's look. White on white is so Summer fresh, and just a pop of metallic print on her Jenni Kayne mini adds a chic little shimmer. Thanks to a pair of sky-high Brian Atwood pumps, Lea's legs are miles long. No other accoutrements needed — she opts for sparkly studs — and stuns.

One moody floral Express miniskirt, two different style situations. Rachel Bilson wore hers casually — with a white tee, denim jacket, and black booties — while picking up her mail in LA. Lake Bell, on the other hand, wore hers to a red carpet event, the Nylon Drew Barrymore August cover party. Her version is all about the layers and includes a green silk shirt, paired with a vest, gray suede booties, and a cream clutch. Both ladies look undeniably hip, but which version rocks your world more?
