For snaps of Taylor Swift smooching her new beau, Conor Kennedy, head over to PopSugar, but to get the scoop on her newest handbag, stay put. The singer spent the weekend in Cape Cod wearing another adorable retro outfit: black-and-white polka-dot top tucked into red shorts, a red polka-dot bandana around her head, and finally, this brown Coach mini saddle bag ($158), which also comes in blue and red. Saddle bags never go out of style and exude a vintage vibe, so if you're looking for a small bag to make yours, get in on Taylor's Coach purse. The price is right, and its rich brown color will look absolutely beautiful with your Fall wardrobe.
The Do Something Awards took place in Santa Monica yesterday, and we were on the carpet and backstage to catch all the action! Lea Michele, Sophia Bush, and Ashley Greene topped our list for the best-dressed ladies of the night. Today we have PopSugar Editor Michelle Manning here to tell us all the scoop straight from the blue carpet — watch today's Fab Flash to hear more. On Allison McNamara: H&M top, Honey Rose & K necklace.
Michelle Williams grabbed lunch with boyfriend Jason Segel at Little Dom's in Los Feliz wearing a colorful printed shirtdress with Ray-Ban Wayfarers, a tan shoulder bag, and wedge sandals. The actress has no shortage of quirky printed dresses that she's been showcasing all Summer long, but we love how her latest style is a modern update on the traditional shirtdress. Inspired by Michelle, we've hand-selected a bunch of similar printed shirtdresses that you can wear with sandals while strolling the city, at work with a blazer and pumps, or at night with a leather jacket and killer high-heeled sandals.
Pretty soon we'll be trading our iced coffees for a warm pumpkin spice latte; likewise, we'll be making similarly minded adjustments in our closets, trading sundresses for cozier fare. Because the change of seasons is a much more subtle transition (not exactly like turning a switch), we're curating a few of our favorite ways to ready for the weather with ease — the pieces you'll need right now to transform your summery staples for the Fall ahead. With a closet full of feminine dresses, effortless maxi skirts, and work shifts and sheath, we're looking to tailored essentials like a sophisticated blazer, Fall's more covered-up footwear, and a selection of moodier textures and fabrics to give your breezy pieces a little more backbone. Read on for the best ways to ready your wardrobe with a touch of the upcoming season.
- Start simple — a cardigan may just be the best lightweight layer to begin the transition. Invest in soft cashmere versions and longer-length varieties that will wear just as well over your favorite Summer dresses now as they will with skinny pants and denim later on in the season.
- Your footwear is the easiest way to hint at the change of seasons. Start swapping your sandals and wedges for loafers and ankle boots that feel inherently like Fall. You don't have to commit to a head-to-toe Fall style, but changing your favorite gladiator sandals for a pair of loafers with your jeans shows you're on top of the seasonal shift.
- While Summer is the season for breezy cotton, Fall is all about rich, luxe textures. Start introducing corduroy on your pants, leather on your skirts and jackets, and pony hair on your shoes, and look to fur and faux fur detailing when the chill really sets in. Any of these more luxurious fabrications instantly gives your look a moodier, Fall-appropriate feel.
Leave it to Gwyneth Paltrow to pull off no-makeup, no-handbag, no-frills Summer style at a Hamptons film premiere. Over the weekend, the actress and full-fledged style pro proved that she can rock the whole natural-beauty thing with as much confidence as she can pull off a Prada mini at the Met Gala. It all comes down to one easy piece: a statement print teal minidress with a city-meets-surfer-girl feel. Gwyneth perfected the vibe with just a couple of additions, throwing on a chunky chain bracelet, watch, and necklace, then finishing with flat Summer-essential sandals in place of any high-wattage heels. Couple that with waves that actually look like Gwyneth may have come straight from a day at the beach, and this may just be the coolest red-carpet arrival we've seen all season — not to mention one that we can actually re-create for our own end-of-Summer routine.
Dear FabSugar editors,
I’m attending an evening, semi-black-tie wedding next week and would love help styling this Tracy Reese frock. With its bright hue and intricate lace, I’m not sure how to accessorize it such that it still looks modern and sophisticated, and not too '50s retro or frou frou.
Would love your help — Frances
Jennifer Lopez was spotted in Las Vegas over the weekend looking fresh as ever in all white. The singer wore a white eyelet crop top with matching shorts, both by Australian label Bec & Bridge, which exposed just enough of her toned midriff. She completed her Summer style with Lanvin snakeskin wedges — here is a similar pair ($398, originally $1,590) — a white Hermes bag, square aviators, and rhinestone drop earrings. Get Jennifer's Vegas look by pairing up similar white eyelet or lace pieces, then finishing off with equally fabulous accessories.
