On weekends, nothing comes between us and our mission to relax, unwind, and, well, be a little lazy — except maybe our outfits. Blame it on the fashion editor in us, but we can't really get behind the sweatpants-as-real-pants thing. Still, we're no slaves to fashion; so we found a work-around. None of these outfits require much more than a few cool layers, everyday denim, and a great pair of booties or sneakers. It's the street-styled proof that you don't need to lose any sleep plotting the perfect brunch look — read on, pin it now, (and thank us later!).
When Jay Z announced that he and Beyoncé were embarking on a 22-day vegan challenge, he may not have been thinking about the impact the diet might have on their high-fashion wardrobes. But after a recent outing to LA's Cafe Gratitude, what Beyoncé wore to lunch, not what she ate, has become the biggest focus. That's because Bey's fur-collared Christopher Kane coat (the same one pictured above), made with real fox fur and glossed leather details, isn't exactly vegan.
But we ask you, does it have to be? Surely there are vegans who embrace an entirely plant-based lifestyle, but just because you eat like a vegan, do you have to dress like one?
We love Kate Middleton's style, not just because it's classic, sophisticated, and ladylike — but, in large part, because it's actually accessible. And we mean that. We're not just talking about the Zara necklace she wore last night: today Kate stepped out in a chic gray coat that's available now. Get one step closer to nailing the Kate effect when you shop her Reiss coat right here.
If you haven't bought your holiday look yet, now's the time — L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic just hit stores. And it's not just party dresses you can shop from the from the 50-piece collection! As we learned in the New York Post's Alexa, there are cozier options, too. Of the pajamas, which Scott calls her favorites in the line, she says, "That's all I can think of at Christmas: I get to sleep in!"
As for why Scott chose the brand for her first collaboration, that decision was an equally warm and cozy one: "I have memories of growing up in Utah and saving my money to shop there. I worked for a Banana Republic [campaign] with Herb Ritts, so I have a history with them." With feminine silhouettes, seasonal hues, and prices ranging from $39 to $198, this could easily become our one-stop shop for holiday dressing. Click through to hear more of her interview, sneak a glimpse, and start shopping!

Aside from busting out our favorite holiday tunes, the easiest way to get festive might just be by slipping on a party top. Don't get me wrong; we love a great party dress, but there's something about throwing on a sequined camisole with our boyfriend jeans that's entirely effortless and totally cool.
So, whether you're throwing together a holiday party look on the go or you just want to add a little sparkle to your everyday outfit, we've hunted down 24 blouses, metallic sweatshirts, and even a crop top to get the party started.
Because being cozy isn't always synonymous with looking cute, even your best party look can be ruined with a bad jacket or bulky coat. To ensure that that doesn't happen, we're putting our fashion math to good use to warm up our holiday-perfect ensembles without marshmallow jackets, puffers, or fleeces.
Instead, we're making use of rich textures, like faux furs, cool leather jackets, and tailored coats — and just remember, you can never have too many pairs of tights on hand. With these on hand, rest assured there's a way to cozy up even your stem-baring, bejeweled cocktail dress. For the fashionable how-to, just keep clicking (and shop away!).
Last night's 27th annual Footwear News Achievement Awards honored the biggest, buzziest names in the shoe biz, from the industry giants to the newcomers and biggest comebacks — Birkenstocks, anyone? You might recognize one of the night's other big winners — on the heels of Olivia Palermo. Aquazzura, the brand behind Miss Palermo's sexy lace-up sandals, took home the prize for Emerging Talent. With an award under their belt and Olivia's endorsement, the brand safely solidified its status as a must-have shoe. What better way to celebrate the big winners (and satisfy our shoe obsession) than shopping our favorite styles?

They may have been on opposite coasts, but as far as outfits were concerned, Olivia Palermo and Amy Adams were on the same wavelength last night. Olivia made a modern play on menswear when she stepped out in NYC for the annual Footwear News Achievement Awards in a chic black jumpsuit and white sleeveless blazer. She didn't skimp on the accents either — true to form, the accessories queen added interest with an armful of bracelets, a pop of emerald on her jeweled clutch, and a pair of exotic heels. In LA, Amy Adams also stuck to a sleek black-and-white palette, showing up to the American Hustle premiere in a fitted white David Koma sheath with bold black stripes and a sheer skirt. To finish, Amy stuck to glamorous jewels and a pair of classic black pumps. So, whose black-and-white look gets your vote in this battle of the coasts?
The piece: Rebecca Minkoff Sagittarius Zodiac Necklace
The price: $78

If you're not, well, at the very least we're betting you know someone who would love this — and et voilà! — we just found the perfect gift.

We're not about to let a little snow or ice stand in the way of a good outfit. That doesn't mean going bare-legged or refusing to bundle up (we want to look stylish, not clueless), but we refuse to wear a sleeping bag masquerading as a coat.
Clearly, this street styled crew knows the feeling — showing off a set of Winter-ready outfits that don't include oversize puffers or snow pants. Instead, their looks inspire a sleek, pulled-together standard for your cold-weather looks, because a little inclement weather should never stand in the way of a great outfit.

Zara's latest and aptly named "In the Evening" lookbook isn't just a glimpse of what's new — it's a lesson in holiday dressing strategy. In it you'll find not more than a handful of pieces, few colors, and just a hint of shine, but page after page of the newest looks never get tired. If you subscribe to the more minimalist holiday dress code, this is clearly for you.
But even if you're typically the bells and whistles type, it's hard to resist the more subtle allure of a sheer crop top, a smattering of cool sequins, and yes, even jeans. Suffice it to say, this is exactly what we want to look like at all of our holiday soirees. You too? Just click through for more outfit ideas — and plenty to shop!

Everybody, take note — Miranda Kerr knows how to fly in style.
