J.Crew's having a pretty great sale right now, but it's a bit of a stealthy one — something you might miss if you don't have your reading glasses on. I sort of get why their homepage is a giant tribute to Mother's Day — those responsible girls out there are probably already shopping for the May 10 holiday — but this sale is not only more pressing (it started today and only goes through Sunday, April 28), it's also unusually good.No men's suits or stuff from other labels, i.e. the Barbour jackets or Cambridge Satchel bags, but everything else in store and online is fair game. All you have to do is type in the promo code, SPRINGBEST, for 25 percent off at checkout. Which really deserves a flashier, grander announcement than the size 8 font that's tucked below the navigation bar, don't you think?

Lulu Frost's sixth collaboration for J.Crew is quickly topping the charts of must-have collaborations to shop this season (and there are a lot to contend with). True to the Lulu Frost label, brilliant pops of color, sharply cut pendants, and intricate details are in ample supply for the Summer '13 collection — the stuff that would not only be a welcome addition to any jewelry box, but the kind that could impact whole wardrobes, too. Neon-tinged statement necklaces could breathe new life into your white tees and tanks; jeweled and tortoiseshell earrings could refresh your cocktail dress lineup; and gold and embellished bracelets would be a welcome bit of arm candy to dress up your work-to-weekend look. Like the collaborations that came before it, this one is stocked with unique, vintage-feeling finds that don't come at the hefty cost of actual vintage baubles. Instead, these retail between $98-$278, and they hit select J.Crew stores and online May 20. Click through for a complete sneak peek — and mark your calendars to shop!

Miranda Kerr was the picture of feminine perfection in a sleeveless Equipment blouse, floral Erdem pencil skirt, and nude Lanvin pumps in Tokyo; Olivia Palermo earned her front-row spot at New York Fashion Week in a knotted Carrie Parry blouse, leather midi skirt, and snakeskin ankle-strap Tibi sandals; and Jessica Alba was crowned the master of unexpected combos in a cropped leather jacket and a yellow plaid Ralph Lauren skirt in NYC.

Get a closer look at this week's standouts, see why they were chosen, then shop their looks for yourself.
It's no secret that we have a major style crush on Solange Knowles, but the trendsetter's latest NYC look has taken our feelings from crush to a full-on love affair. On her way into New York Fashion Week, Solange worked a brown polka-dot tee and blue sequin J.Crew houndstooth pencil skirt with pointed leopard pumps, then upped the wow factor via a bright yellow Dolce & Gabbana tote. From her bold blazers to her eye-catching accessories, Solange is a fashion force to be reckoned with. Take a cue from this style maven by pairing a polka-dot blouse, blue houndstooth skirt, and leopard pumps for your next fashionable lunch date.
Welcome to Friday, the wonderful day when we reveal CelebStyle's top stars of the week. We had quite the fashionable crew this week from Gwen Stefani's crisp and cool Cali look to Solange Knowles's vibrant printed blazer pairing and Dita Von Teese's sexy red sheath and leopard combo, with a few more including Dianna Agron, Katie Holmes, Selena Gomez, and Kate Moss. Check out all of our style-setting winners, find out why they were crowned, then shop one or all of their looks for yourself.
A slew of Hollywood A-listers stepped out last night to celebrate the launch of The Shops at Target in NYC, but only a few stood out as style stars. Emma Roberts, Leelee Sobieski, Hilary Rhoda, and January Jones donned chic and easy-to-re-create outfits we can't wait to steal. Emma went casual in a colorblock sweater, Hilary opted for a springy look, Leelee showcased a menswear-inspired ensemble, and January dolled it up in a feminine-slash-boyish number. Step inside to get a closer look at these spotlight-worthy styles, then shop the looks — including exact pieces — for yourself.
Brooklyn Decker continues to show off her amazing style sense while simultaneously promoting her new flick Battleship. At a press conference in South Korea, the actress wore a red Katie Ermilio dress with an asymmetrical hemline, topped by a black Dolce & Gabbana blazer, and finished with red Christian Louboutin cap-toe heels. Zoom in a bit and you'll notice there's more to this look; Brooklyn cinched her waist with a hot pink J.Crew belt. It's a small addition, but one that has major impact. And with the current love affair between red and pink, it's the perfect — and easy — styling tip that can work for you, too. So the next time you reach for a red dress, also grab a bright pink belt for extra impact. Shop our favorite red dresses and pink belts below to get started.
I'm happy to present a story from one of my favorite sites, Stylelist Home!
Though the big trend of Fall 2012 Fashion Week seems to be models falling, we're talking about all the bright hues spotted on the runway. Exhibit A: J.Crew's presentation, which included this great look that combined colors like hot pink and soft gray. Though there's no argument that colors like hot pink, yellow and orange are lovely, we think their appeal is most apparent when combined with neutrals. The bold hues bring out the warm undertones hidden in a shade like gray, turning what could be severe and sad into something much cozier.
To get the paint swatches for our homes, we used 'Chip It', Sherwin-Williams' new color palette generator tool. From this palette, we went ahead and took a quick look at how these colors can really stand out in a room, from a dining room where pink, red, and white are used as dramatic bursts of color against dark walls to a gray sofa that has pink accent pillows, which are an unexpected but elegant touch in a living room. Another idea we stumbled upon is a bedroom that has painted pink walls and blush bedding . . . for a feminine but surprisingly interesting approach.
