Trade in your rigid jeans for something much lighter this Summer: chambray. A perfect layering piece, chambray is one fabric you can wear with just about anything (don't be afraid to experiment with denim on denim). Some of our favorites? An Ella Moss paneled shirt and drawstring shorts from Splendid.

There are three major takeaways in this edition of "found": Nina Dobrev's little fit-and-flare dress is totally adorable, under $100, and requires you to act fast if you want to call it your own. Here's why: The Vampire Diaries actress celebrated ahead of the Super Bowl on Saturday night with what we've come to realize is the perfect party dress. Thanks to a lacy panel and utlraflattering fit-and-flare silhouette it doesn't take much to style this dress up for fancier occasions — and it doesn't take much to make it work for a variety of body types or climates, either. The silhouette cinches the waist, draws eyes up with its intricate front paneling, and it's easy enough to add tights and a great coat to warm it up for the current forecast. It also happens to be a budget-friendly French Connection find that's on final sale for $80 — like we said, the only catch is acting fast to channel the same, flirty Nina-Dobrev effect on your own.
Taylor Swift is no stranger to playful pieces, and her latest black and white polka-dot sweater by French Connection ($108) is no exception. We love the oversize dots and how she paired it with rich dark-red cropped pants. Taylor then added her signature ladylike twist via a pearl necklace and black patent bow flats. A matching Beara Beara messenger bag and red lips completed the singer's latest street style. Shop her exact sweater now — as well as more FabSugar-approved polka-dot sweaters — to make your Fall a little bit more fun and playful.

Both Taylor Swift and Nina Dobrev wore spotlight-worthy red lace dresses on the red carpet recently, but each exuded a totally different vibe. Taylor looked majorly sweet in this French Connection long-sleeve red lace number ($198) at the I Heart Radio concert in Las Vegas, while Nina was all sex appeal in her red lace-sleeve cutout Reem Acra dress at the LA premiere of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Whether you're more of a sassy dresser or prefer something demure, use red lace to your advantage by shopping our favorite picks below. For a ladylike look, choose something with sleeves, a looser silhouette, and a longer hemline, and for something more racy, go with daring details like cutouts, a fitted cut, and a mini hemline. Then complete your look by choosing the right accessories according to the vibe you're trying to achieve.
