Take a mental break away from the cold and check out H&M's Spring '13 collection. Culling inspiration from the Wild West, the collection features a cool range of embellished jackets, faux leather embroidered skirts, studded vests, and sheer printed maxis that are sure to draw out your inner bohemian persona. With H&M bargain prices, we can't think of a better way to test out the hot trend made popular by Isabel Marant. After all, doesn't every girl need a red tasseled miniskirt in her life? What's more, sportier offerings, like metallic polka-dot drawstring shorts and printed bomber jackets, are perfect pieces for the season ahead. See our top three looks below, then click the slideshow to see the complete lookbook.
- From the soft off-white hue to the gold trim embellishment, we can't think of a reason why we shouldn't swap out our regular gray hoodie for this much cooler, dressier option.
- We can't resist this fun red tasseled miniskirt, perfect for Summer cocktails, parties, and so much more.
- We love the idea of pairing this billowy white top with skinny black trousers and point-toe pumps for a breezy work look.
A scarf doesn't just have to be a Winter necessity; instead, let it shine through in your next cold-weather getup. Case in point: we love everything about this seasonally cool look, but it was really this street styler's oversize colorful striped scarf that grabbed our attention. Compelling, right? We took it upon ourselves to re-create this downtown-girl ensemble for you to try out for yourself. All you need are a leather skirt, an oversize cream knit sweater, black ankle boots, a menswear watch, rad Wayfarers, and, of course, a stunning, vibrant striped scarf. Ready to emote the same downtown-ready look? Just shop our picks in the links below.

Celine Dion was spotted out in Paris looking trendy and toasty in a houndstooth jacket and patent leather ankle boots. She layered her printed topper over a striped top and streamlined black denim, then wrapped a lightweight gray scarf to complement her Fall basics. Celine finished off her sleek and chic ensemble with a covetable Céline trapeze tote and classically framed sunglasses. Re-create Celine's look by pairing a houndstooth jacket or cardigan with a striped top and black riding pants, then tie it all together with a black satchel, patent leather boots, and a gray scarf.
Kristen Stewart has come a long way since her red-carpet appearances for Twilight back in '08. That was then, and now, the 22-year-old actress has since been causing quite a sartorial stir with all of her recent skin-baring ensembles at her recent Breaking Dawn Part 2 appearances. Stewart's stylist Tara Swennen, who has been working with the actress since '07, had something to do with all of that sexiness. "It took a lot of balls for her to wear that dress, so I'm super-proud of her," said Swennen, referring to the sheer lace Zuhair Murad gown Stewart wore to the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 in LA. The stylist also recently dished on why Kristen won't wear jewelry, her affinity for wearing Chucks on the red carpet, and her evolving style. Read below for the highlights, then head over to The Cut for the complete interview.
On Kristen's Breaking Dawn Part 2 red-carpet choices: Twilight is coming to a close, so we wanted to do stronger looks. Just recently, she’s embraced doing the long-gown thing, so it was definitely an opportunity for me to stick as many as I could on her. We just wanted to make a grand escape, I guess, rather than a grand entrance . . . we like making sure that we push boundaries on every carpet.
On Kristen wearing Converse on the red carpet: She’ll always change into her Converse by halfway through a carpet, which is to be expected at this point, but she puts on the heels for me for the photos.
On Kristen's jewelry and the necklace she always wears: She doesn’t have her ears pierced, still, so it’s a running joke that when she’s 25, I’ll finally get her in jewelry . . . her jewelry is jewelry that tends to stay on her only because it has sentimental value to her, whether it’s from friends or family . . . It’s her second skin, essentially, at this point.
On Kristen's evolving red-carpet style: She’s grown into being more comfortable on the red carpet; she’s definitely embracing elegance and gracefulness. Obviously I’ve been able to push more on her, but I think her confidence level is really the thing that’s changed the most over the years.
If we learned anything from watching Meet the Parents (too many times) it's this: you're better off carrying on. That's especially the case if you're not headed to your own home for the holidays. Traveling to your significant other's (friend's, roommate's, etc.) for Thanksgiving presents a ton of packing challenges — Is it OK to wear my pajamas to breakfast? Do I have to wear a dress for Thanksgiving dinner? Fortunately, we're here to help relieve a little of that holiday stress and make packing for your Turkey Day away a little easier on you. Your guide to, um, not overstuffing it begins right now. Read on for our tips for efficient packing, then click through for the 14 items to have in your suitcase.
- While it's tempting to show off all of your new purchases and favorite items, don't sacrifice space for a single amazing piece you can only wear once. Instead, look to tops, dresses, and tees that you can wear more than once and go well with the other items in your bag.
- If something wrinkles easily, leave it at home. Look to easy fabrics and finishes that will roll and fold easily into your suitcase.
- Know the power of great accessories. A great pair of earrings or a pretty necklace can take a sweater or top from day to night in a flash and take up a tiny amount of space in your bag.

Miranda Kerr strutted through NYC styling her go-to Givenchy tote ($2,405) with a snake-print Balenciaga pencil skirt ($704) and two-tone Lanvin pumps. The model added instant sex appeal to her polished paring with a black sheer-sleeve top and python-rimmed Linda Farrow shades ($594). If you've ever dreamed of dressing like Miranda, and who hasn't, shop her exact skirt, bag, and shades to pair with a sweet-cum-sexy blouse and two-tone pumps for a romantic date night look.
It wasn't Miley Cyrus's newly (re)shorn hair that caught our eye in NYC yesterday, so much as it was the color combo we spotted her wearing. Whoever said the navys and browns of the world weren't the perfect complement to a black palette were very mistaken, and here's our latest argument inspired by the Two and a Half Men starlet. By styling her black fur top — a textural statement piece, in our opinion — with a fitted (and flared) navy blue skater skirt, Miley doubled up on the outfit intrigue. You're not only privy to a cool set of hues that prove sophisticated and a perfect wintry mix, but you're also treated to a really interesting play on chunky vs. slim-cut silhouettes. To finish, she accented the look with black tights, an oversize black chain-strap bag, and edgier monk-strap ankle boots. While we're currently in favor of the punched-up shoe choice, we know not everyone wants to don the tougher moto style. Thus, focus on the key juxtaposition on top, then add your favorite black ankle to mid-calf boot. For extra inspiration, shop our editors' picks below now.
We've said it before, but thankfully Diane Kruger is here to prove our point that you don't have to give your Winter wardrobe a seasonal overhaul, just a few strategic updates. Not only is her latest a perfect example of easy, pulled-together airport style (take note for your Thanksgiving trips!), but it's also a warmed-up way to still wear your favorite booties, denim, and classic stripes. We gravitate toward lightweight Breton stripes all Spring and Summer long, but Diane's knit is a much cozier way to get the same chic vibe, while classic bootcut jeans are a year-round favorite and supple suede ankle boots are an easy and on-trend way to finish it off. As for the accoutrements — who says you can't wear colored shades in Winter (or indoors)? Feeling inspired? Shop our favorite stripes with a Winter-ready twist below.
