The pencil skirt always makes it on the wardrobe staples list, but many women struggle when it comes to wearing it outside of the office. We are all about this longer length right now, which is why we're styling pencil skirts for a night on the town and a casual weekend. Watch on, and give your favorite miniskirt a break!

From coast to coast, party season is in full swing. And while we’re seeing the usual parade of black, white, and vibrant red party dresses — we have a new favorite color trend: navy.
Navy has always been a go-to for men, from suits to chinos and just about everything else, but we've noticed an uptick in ladies in navy, and we like it. Is navy the new black? Perhaps not — just about every color has tried (and failed) to be the new black, but we have to admit that this classic, flattering hue is the perfect antidote to your typical party dress.
Last week, both Gisele Bündchen and Jessica Hart wore gorgeous navy-blue frocks while out in New York, and January Jones was recently snapped striking quite the pose in a navy Chloé dress (at a Chloé runway show, naturally).

Although it may have felt like it for awhile now, today is the official first day of Fall. To celebrate the changing season, here are the top 10 fashion trends for Fall 2013. That's right: we're breaking down the standout looks straight from the runways right here. Saint Laurent staged a serious '90s grunge revival — the likes of which Courtney Love would be proud. Shades of blue cascaded down the Prada, Missoni, and Carven catwalks (to name a few); high-impact details took jeweled, feathered, and appliquéd shape at Lanvin, J.Crew, and Tom Ford; and the new It shoe was grounded, thanks to lug soles, ridged platforms, and much chunkier soles. Click on for our comprehensive Fashion Week Fall 2013 trend breakdown to make plotting your shopping lists and wish lists a little easier.

Whether you're wedding dress shopping or fantasizing, consider this your ultimate guide to Fall 2014's biggest bridal trends. If you suspect that most are white gowns, you'd be underestimating the handiwork of the fashion world's very skilled wedding dress designers. Sure, the traditional cream and ecru may rule, but that doesn't mean there weren't a few surprises — like pink, for starters.
That's just the tip of the iceberg in this wedding dress world, where feathers and shorter hemlines also ruled the runways. Click on to see the six big trend takeaways and what they mean for your walk down the aisle.
This past New York Fashion Week Spring 2014 had a couple common themes that stuck with me. The continuation of leathers. Head-to-toe-white — white tops paired with matching pants to all-white dresses. Contrasting neutrals, lots of black and white combos used to create bold prints or paired together simply to balance one another.
I love neutrals, but I'm such a bright colors type of gal and immediately fell in love with all the hues of blue that showed on the runways this season! With that being said, blue was my inspiration for this particular day at NYFW.
As the cooler weather approaches, one can't help but begin to think about coats. The staple of our wardrobes, come the Fall and Winter months. We rely so heavily on our coats to show us best, to speak the language of style, and to present us in the most gorgeous bundled-up manner possible. For when a "chance of rain and snow" becomes the daily norm for forecast, we have no choice but to find style in our outerwear. Cold-weather fashion is my ultimate favorite. Blame it on the cozy knits and stylish booties, or maybe point fingers at growing up in Canada; either way, finding my own personal style within laying prints, oversize sweaters, and coats that could kill is what makes me wake up with a smile. That, and the baby giggles coming from the room across the hall.
What I predict we will see this Fall and Winter season ahead of us for outerwear are:
Modern Cape: Both in classic solid colors and bold, wild prints, I see this trend taking us long into the new year. A style of this nature, which can be manipulated simply with a belt (as seen in the image) or let loose, it will no doubt be flattering for all woman.
Traditional Trench: As it has done in the past, I foresee this trend never growing old. However, for 2013 I see lots of feminine details being added to a yet traditional classic look. You can never go wrong with a trench coat.
Leather Details: We see it everywhere we look. The leather details don't stop at pants or shirts; no ladies, not this year. Invading coat sleeves, collars, pockets, and belts, you will not see the end of our smooth friend this Fall and Winter.
Utility Camo: We saw the Utility Jacket take over Spring outerwear this year, so it's no doubt I expect to see it amped a little for the colder months ahead. Utility never looked so chic. Thicker, bolder, and coming in camo; I see both the utility and camo coming on strong this Fall and Winter.
What do you predict we will see on the runway this Fall?
