BCBGMAXAZRIA has kicked off its annual Winter sale, and with amazing pieces at under $100, there's no reason not to splurge. Or at least take a peek. When combing through, we came across 10 styles that would look smashing in our Fab closets. A little leopard here, a little bling there, some lace, some draping, and we have a selection worth spending the holiday cash we received on!
With 2011 almost upon us, it's hard not to think about the future. At Fab, that means thinking about what we're going to be wearing.

The start of a new year brings a great opportunity to reflect — we can look back on what we accomplished, and make resolutions for the coming 12 months. I always look forward to cleaning out the old closet and making room for fresh new pieces. With less than 48 hours until a brand-new year, I thought it necessary to highlight some of the things I'm planning — and coveting — when the clock strikes midnight.

Odette Yustman's been on our radar for her chic, no-fuss style sense. Here, she masters two trends in one take — a little leopard and a ladylike, maxi length Blu Moon skirt ($154) that manages to look cool and totally sophisticated all at once. Channel the same style with a pretty, full skirt ($250), then add a dose of the wild print on top ($70) — or vice versa. The bonus is that this pair will still feel fresh and on-trend come Spring.

Give your regular skinny jeans a rest for a while and invest in a pair of cozy cool corduroys. We've tracked down six pairs that are all on sale, so you can achieve cool, all without bugging your wallet. Fab's favorite is these J Brand Skinny Leg Corduroy Pants ($105, originally $158) — the grayish-white hue is super fresh, and the price tag is equally sweet. But any of the above styles will also keep you looking totally on trend. Click to shop.
We've seen some interesting leather shorts recently, and we're wondering: are they really wearable? OnSugar blog Black by Sara says yes, using an uber-chic, leather-shorted Olivia Palermo and five cool leather short styles as proof.
I adore leather and shorts, so you guessed it, I love this new trend. Olivia Palermo is sporting this style in a right way with black heels and a camel tone bag. Love it!
