Short-sleeve coats are all the rage. But short-sleeved and cropped are also Fab. This Max Studio Cropped Swingy Peacoat ($84, originally $298) is fame worthy for several reasons: it's lightweight, water repellent, totally modern, and inexpensive. Throw it on over your outfit for the perfect finishing touch on a rainy day.
Cate Blanchett picked up her kids from school in NYC wearing a cozy yet styled outfit. She dressed up her gray harem pants with a cropped, fitted blazer, which she wore over layers of t-shirts. Her men's inspired watch and driving shoes gave the ensemble an androgynous feel while her red sunglasses and beaded clutch completed the look with a feminine touch. Shop similar pieces now.

Thanks to the imaginative minds of fabulous footwear designers, sizzling hot shoes were everywhere this year — on the red carpet, on the streets, and at the parties. Without further ado, here are our top six contenders: Christian Louboutin, Giuseppe Zanotti, Dolce Vita, Givenchy, Jimmy Choo, and Nine West. A mixed bag of high/low brands, and each shined in its own way. Christian Louboutin's eye for decadent details produced beautiful shapes that are undeniably gorgeous. Giuseppe wowed us with its edgier designs and sky-scraping heels. Dolce Vita made a major mark with its affordable, trendy styles. Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci is a force to be reckoned with; his shoes are as amazing as his clothes. Jimmy Choo's Tamara Mellon had a big year on the red carpet, and who can forget her crazy cool collab with H&M? And last but not least, Nine West. Their shoes are always comfy, cheap, and cunning.

Every year around this time, my fams and I head to the local tree farm to choose a Christmas tree. We have so much fun running around — though last year my dad tripped and fell — drinking hot cocoa, and voting on which tree gets to go home with us. (Oh, in case you're wondering, my dad's injury was minimal.) Can you help me put together a cozy, cute outfit for this weekend's fun festivities? I'll start you off with these Top Shop Fingerless Sequin Gloves ($32) — I'm a sucker for fingerless sparkle.
