Between red carpets, the Olympic Games, and days spent on the set, some of our fashion favorites were staying very busy — and sharing their cool snaps through social media along the way. Behati Prinsloo and Karlie Kloss stuck close to each other during a snowy photo shoot, while Poppy Delevingne made the most of the Summer sun at a rooftop party. Alexa Chung kept things cool in a pair of goofy glasses, and Candice Swanepoel joined fellow Angels Erin Heatherton and Doutzen Kroes on the set of a Victoria's Secret commercial.
Whether you're heading back to school or simply take pride in your alma mater, Toms has you covered with its latest Campus Collection, launching online on Aug. 20.

See the complete college collection now and tell us what you think. We got spirit, yes we do. We got spirit, how 'bout you?
If you're on the hunt for the perfect jacket to instantly revive your closet staples, look no further than the celeb-approved favorite, brocade jackets. Rachel Bilson worked her metallic Vanessa Bruno topper with cuffed AG denim and pointed black pumps in Hollywood, Kylie Minogue styled a yellow Dolce & Gabbana brocade jacket with cropped black trousers and gold sandals in London, and Kristen Stewart's jacquard Roberto Cavalli blazer complemented her slick leather pants at the Teen Choice Awards. As you can see, brocade jackets jazz up everything from denim to leather to dresses to skirts. Take a cue from these trendsetting starlets and work a brocade topper — here is one of our favorites for night ($225) — into your mix by shopping our favorites below.
Lollapalooza kicks off tomorrow, but if the current weather forecast — temperatures are predicted to be in the high 80s with possible thunderstorms — has left you a little bummed, don't stress. We culled the smartest pieces made for the rain and shine; think lightweight anoraks, cool shorts, rugged ankle boots, and nomadic jewels. Before you know it, you'll be one step closer to achieving festival fashion greatness in no time at all. Shop our top 10 picks now.

Colorful ensembles are always playful, but there is something so chic and understated about a solid-hued look, which is why we adore how these six celebrities rocked their monochromatic looks. Melissa George worked a red-hot ensemble with bow-accent Christian Louboutin pumps in Hollywood, Kate Bosworth went black on black in Hugo Boss in Berlin, while Ashley Greene blushed in a neutral Emilio Pucci mini and textured Casadei pumps in LA. In a world where prints are prominent, it's easy to push aside classic monochromatic ensembles, but next time you're heading out on the town, take a cue from these stylish stars.
When it comes to silhouette-enhancing accessories, there's just nothing that does the trick quite like a great belt. Wide, skinny, double-wrap, triple-wrap, braided, vintage patchwork, exotic textures, or a classic brass buckle iteration — it's the easiest way to cinch your waist and give it a more feminine shape, it's the fastest way to punch up a low-key look, and it's the most subtle way to take an ensemble from casual to polished. Now that we're easing into a transitional dressing state of mind, we're looking to shop the belts that will stay by (and on) our sides from Summer through Fall. Whether you opt for girlier pieces (try a glitter-infused Miu Miu bow-tie belt for ultimate girl power) or you can't resist an eye-catching statement (we'd like to introduce you to Alexander McQueen's corset-inspired wide belt), there's something in here for everyone. Click through to shop our favorites now.
On her way out of her NYC apartment, Sarah Jessica Parker sported a Steven Alan little black dress with a pleated skirt ($335) and a black patent chain-strap Roger Vivier bag over it. Gold studded flats, her signature wraparound sunglasses, and a green bracelet served as her other chic accoutrements. Sarah Jessica also carried two large canvas bags, one with hot-pink straps by Michelle Vale. Re-create her latest darling daytime look for work or the weekend by investing in the similar pleated black dress we chose below or this less-expensive one from Aqua ($88).
