Leather is a cold-weather mainstay, but this season, we're reaching for it in new styles and colors. Designers like Alexander Wang, DKNY, and Theyskens' Theory all showed leather for this season, and we put our own fresh spin on this Fall essential! From white leather t-shirts to olive-colored pants, see how we styled up three unexpected outfits using leather pieces at Madison in Pacific Palisades. On Allison McNamara: Equipment blouse, T by Alexander Wang skirt.
Last week, as Kim Kardashian took off from LAX, she showed off her cool new funky black sunglasses. At the same time, Alicia Keys was spotted in London in the same exact sunglasses: these Grey Ant The Foundry shades ($270). We love the dark color and especially the sawed-off detail at the bottom of the frames. Kim and Alicia aren't the only fans of Grey Ant; Beyoncé also owns a thick-rimmed pair from the label. If you're looking for cool new shades that will have people talking, score Kim and Alicia's exact pair now!

Sarah Burton's Spring '13 collection for Alexander McQueen was quite literally buzzing with excitement. With models decked out in elaborate honeycomb beekeeper hats, Burton created a truly masterful collection, inspired by Alberto Vargas's pinup images, filled with dramatic hoopskirts, ornate detailing, and some of the most inventive looks we've seen yet. It was a dramatic entrance as the show opened up with cropped honeycomb trousers paired with a gold peplum jacquard blazer — accessorized with gorgeous amber-hued jewelry reminiscent of bee nectar. More sweetness followed suit highlighting fit-and-flare skirts, resin bustiers, structured mesh tops, and hot shorts all featuring Burton's bee theme. Watching the collection go down the aisle was like studying art, further exemplified by Burton's impressive array of evening wear. Corset minidresses were paired up with netted thigh-high boots, billowy off-shoulder renditions revealed a honeycomb bodice underneath, and the grand finale, a showstopping array of red, yellow, and black crinoline gowns, simply took our breath away. Indeed, there's no question that Paris saved the best for last.
- Trends: Jacquard, statement prints, shine, full skirts, structured silhouettes.
- Colors: Gold, black, yellow, red, cream, dark green, amber.
- Key Piece: If we had to choose, we'd go with the most wearable look; the honeycomb pants and gold peplum jacquard blazer combo was amazing.
- Accessories: Modern honeycomb hats, bee-embellished cuffs, necklaces, and belts, shimmery ankle-wrap strapped shoes with honeycomb mesh detailing, patent honeycomb satchels, thigh-high honeycomb mesh boots, corset belts.
- Who Should Wear It: Ladies looking to add a lot of drama on the red carpet like Lady Gaga and Elizabeth Banks.
Lucky magazine is one of our favorite sources for great shopping tips. We're thrilled to share this fabulous story from our friends at Lucky!
When he first launched his namesake ready-to-wear line, Tom Ford was extremely strict about hiding his collections until each one hit stores — an intriguing but totally unrealistic policy. In this era of Instagram and Twitter feeds, nothing stays private. Paparazzi secretly photograph Duchesses naked at private villas and no young starlet can have a quiet affair. It seems that the eponymous designer has finally realized this, too. Today, for the second season in a row, he released a video lookbook with his newest creations.
In the footage below, you'll see every single Spring/Summer 2013 look from multiple angles set to pulsing drum riffs. The pieces are Ford at his sleek, simple, sexy best and would've been worth waiting for. But still, we're glad we didn't.

Chloé's Spring 2013 show was full of voluminous silhouettes, airy fabrics, ruffles, and clean, minimal pieces that simply shone on the runway. Our style director Noria Morales and Fashionologie editor Christina Perez are talking all things Chloé, from the atmosphere of the show to their favorite pieces from the runway. See their take on the house's 60th anniversary collection now.
Floral skirts scream Spring and Summer, but don't put them away just yet. There are some easy tips for taking your trendy retro skirt into Fall. Taylor Swift, Eva Mendes, and Dita Von Teese wore theirs all Summer with sandals and short-sleeve tops, but by adding a pair of opaque tights, booties, and a sweater, they can look just as fabulous in a cozy version. In Taylor's and Eva's cases, they can swap the short sleeves for a longer-sleeved blouse, and Dita can ditch her arm-baring tee for a long-sleeve one too. Of course, a hefty coat, gloves, a scarf, and a hat can also help cozy things up. Shop our handpicked retro floral skirts below, and then add your favorite Fall accessories to take them into the new season.
Paul & Joe designer Sophie Albou crafted a collection that made us yearn for the carefree days of Summer. Marked by a warm palette of colorful prints, then juxtaposed against a crisp set of collared white blouses, tapered trousers, and long tomboyish shorts, it felt all at once beachy, youthful, and very chic. What caught our eye most, though — because let's face it, it was a very pretty lineup — were the oversize two-tone knit tops made for a chilly evening, the baseball jackets reworked with pale blue railroad stripes and floral-printed shoulder details, and the silver metallic minidress that was equal parts formal and laid-back against a sporty denim jacket. This is the kind of Spring '13 collection that never tried to be anything but playful and sweet, and sometimes that's all you really need when constructing your warm-weather wardrobe.
