The cardigan-and-blouse combo is a tried-and-true favorite, and this season, we're looking to inject a fresh twist to this styling trick with pretty color combinations, textural intrigue, and fun prints. First up? Try pairing an oversize cable-knit, grandpa-inspired cardigan with a silk plaid top for a look that can easily be worn to the cabin (with cords and fur-lined boots), or with leather leggings and metallic oxfords for an effortless downtown aesthetic. Cute, right? Keep clicking for four more cardi-and-blouse combos we promise you'll want to wear all season long.
Emma Roberts, Nicole Richie, and more kicked off Halloween early with a bevy of costume parties over the weekend. If you're still in need of a little inspiration or you just want to check out what the stars wore to their Halloween parties, click on to watch today's Fab Flash and let us know who gets your vote for best costume! On Allison McNamara: Nieves Lavi dress, House of Lavande necklace.
To celebrate the launch of Levi’s® Fall Collection, we asked you to show us what styles you’re coveting this fall via your Levi’s® Cut with Grace Pinterest boards. You guys pinned pieces ranging from Bootcut Skinny jeans to soft and flowy sweaters. Your style is inspiring and we are pleased to share some of our favorite pins from the contest. Check out this slideshow and keep your eyes peeled for the winner announcement.
Among our favorite Fall toppers this year is the classic duffle coat. Whether you call it a duffle or toggle coat, these super-cozy pieces are perfect for bundling up during crisp Fall days. With their thick wool material and trusty toggle fastenings (sometimes known as "walrus teeth") duffle coats made a serious statement on the runways at Altuzarra, Rag & Bone, Alexander Wang, and more — inspiring us to pick up one of these babies for our Fall layering game. We've rounded up 12 toggle coats that were made to be bundled up in — click through to shop them now.
While promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 in Ireland, Nikki Reed looked svelte in coated black jeans and black cutout sandals. But it was her top, a nude and black colorblock blouse that did most of the attention grabbing. We also love how the actress chose to pile on the accessories: a long necklace, multiple bangles, and a bevy of rings. To get Nikki's latest look, shop this similar colorblock top from Urban Outfitters ($29) to pair with your black jeans and high-heeled sandals. Then to dress it up even more, sport it with wide-leg trousers or a black leather skirt.
If you're on the East Coast, chances are you know Sandy (Hurricane Sandy, that is) pretty well already. But this force of nature isn't the only reason we're honing in on the rainy-day fashion essentials. As Fall settles in, and Winter is but a severe temperature drop away, it's important to have the right layers and add-ons that will not only keep you warm, but keep you dry. An umbrella is key (and we're kind of obsessed with this plaid-infused one), as is slick outerwear. Whatever your coat preference may be — anorak, puffer, or trench — we've got it in its best waterproof rendition. Plus, you'll definitely need some boot socks, toasty headgear, and, if conditions worsen, a backup travel umbrella, too. In effect, we promise the perfect mix of sleek and functional rainy-day must haves. For the complete storm-trooper detail, head right this way.

Lea Michele attended a Big Brothers Big Sisters gala in Beverly Hills, and while we're normally used to seeing the Glee star in plunging necklines, this time she went a different route in this Michael Kors one-shoulder studded dress ($2,695). On bottom she sported black patent t-strap pumps by Christian Louboutin and kept the rest of her red-carpet look pretty minimal. If you don't yet own a black one-shoulder dress, consider adding Lea's exact one to your wardrobe, or if the price tag is too steep, we also love this one from Lauren Ralph Lauren ($78, originally $130).
Before we get into why we're all for Fall's current intarsia sweater obsession, let's talk about what intarsia is first. "Intarsia" refers to a knitting technique — not a fabric or a print — used to create multicolored patterns. And while it looks like the colors are interwoven, they are actually all separate pieces that just happen to fit together perfectly, like a jigsaw puzzle. It requires some skilled handcrafting, and as you can see, it manifests itself in bold colorways and quirky prints. Now, it should be obvious why the intarsia sweater craze is right up our alley. Sure, everyone — and we mean everyone — from Stella McCartney, Altuzarra, and Kenzo to Markus Lupfer, Marc Jacobs, and Mary Katrantzou is adding their own personal spin on the look, but the number one reason we're backing this trend? It's sweater season, and there's no better way to layer up than with a sweater that provides a much-needed burst of brightness and textural intrigue. Plus, these sweaters happen to make a pretty vibrant statement all on their own. Click through our editors' picks below and fall in love with your next (intarsia) purchase.Clockwise, from top left: Mary Katrantzou Fall 2012 runway, 3.1 Phillip Lim Kill the Night comic featuring the designer's intarsia sweaters, Kenzo Intarsia Angora-Blend Sweater ($640), and Paris Fashion Week street style.
Over the weekend Lauren Conrad popped by the Kate Somerville clinic in LA looking part wild, part classic in this cheetah-print button-down blouse by C. Wonder ($128). On bottom she sported black skinny jeans and black ballet flats, shielded her eyes via these Christian Dior cat-eye sunglasses ($295), then carried her signature Chanel bag. What we admire most about Lauren's leopard blouse is that it would look just as amazing at work as it would on the weekend. To get her look, shop this Isaac Mizrahi leopard blouse ($80), then pair it with your black jeans and flats for a daytime look, tuck it into a high-waist pencil skirt for the office, then throw on killer heels for a night out.
