We all have them: water stains, scuff marks, tarnished suede — in a nutshell, we're all plagued by boots that no longer look like they did when we bought them. Luckily, we're showing you three easy ways to get your shoes up to snuff, no matter what they're suffering from. Watch now to find out how to clean them at home and save a trip to the cobbler (as well as some cash)!
If you're on the hunt for the perfect versatile jacket that will never go out of style, look no further than this celeb-approved shearling and leather Current/Elliott jacket ($928). Lea Michele doubled up on the moto trend styling her luxe topper with black buckle boots between shooting scenes for Glee in LA, while Mandy Moore was spotted rocking her textured jacket with snake Jeffrey Campbell sneakers in Glendale. We love how the soft shearling and supple leather combines to create a cool-girl style that is equal parts cozy and chic. See how these trendsetters styled this Winter staple and score the exact jacket for yourself or shop similar styles in a variety of hues here.
We got another glamorous glimpse into the lives of some of our favorite style setters this week, and boy was it entertaining. Poppy Delevingne shared a photo of herself with "the king" — otherwise known as Karl Lagerfeld — at a Chanel runway show, and even snapped a pic of her friend Sienna Miller as well. Hilary Rhoda gave us "rooftop realness" in a Tom Ford gown in NYC, while Lauren Conrad went window-shopping with a friend.
Kourtney Kardashian was spotted in Miami looking prim and polished in a colorblock ensemble that is perfect for work or play. She tucked a pleated-sleeve coral top into an olive green Ani Lee peplum skirt, then accentuated her fit frame with a wide black leather belt. Kourtney finished off her look with scrolled Prada sunglasses ($290), black platform heels, and a covetable python Céline tote. We love the idea of adapting Kourtney's chic warm-weather look for the office by pairing a coral jacket with a green peplum skirt, classic black heels, and a sophisticated satchel.
When she's not donning retro-meets-prepster wares as Rachel Berry on Glee, or taking her sexy thigh-high slit gowns to the next level on the red carpet, Lea Michele still manages to own yet another styling persona. We're referring to her cool off-duty LA look, of course. While simple in its elemental execution, there's no way you can go wrong when an awesome shearling biker jacket is involved. Before we get in over our heads, let's review: Lea stuck to the casual basics — light-washed denim and a white tee — and then gave her low-key approach a tougher finish with the addition of two edgier pieces, a leather jacket and ankle-cut moto boots. We love the boots, but like we already divulged, the Current/Elliott jacket is the real game changer here.Even if you're not the type to take on more masculine-inspired wares, the shearling collar gives this topper a softer, cozier appeal. And while we are totally fine with copying her outfit head-to-toe, you can also pair this cool-girl jacket with more feminine fare. Try layering a bobble-knitted sweater over a floral-printed maxi dress, then finish it off with a jacket like this one. Or, don a fitted pencil skirt with an oversize fuzzy sweater, topping it off with what else? A shearling-lined jacket, and you'll see that blurring the lines of rough-around-the-edges vs. ultragirlie is actually quite easy. We'll leave the ensemble to you, but the outerwear — we've got our favorite picks below.
From Jessica Alba's colored denim obsession to Sarah Jessica Parker's love for velvet blazers, every trendsetting celebrity has a signature style and recently we've discovered Olivia Wilde's red-carpet secret weapon. The sexy star has been spotted amping up her all-black ensembles with a bevy of bold colored pumps to create eye-catching ensembles that are the perfect combination of sophistication and youth. Get a closer look at Olivia's knockout looks, then mimic her cool-girl style for a night out.
Inevitably holiday excitement gives way to holiday anxiety over present buying and outfit planning — but at least we can help you with the latter. To make scoring your cocktail party dress or festive (not ugly) sweater that much easier, we've visited a few of our favorite retailers, all of which happen to be having some very well-timed, major sales. Inside, we're doing our part to keep up the holiday cheer with 16 party-ready finds that are also awesomely discounted. You can get that faux fur vest you've had your eye on and that peplum-trimmed cocktail dress, and maybe that sequined dress for your New Year's party, too. Click on to score big with a few of our favorite sale items for the season.
