Vests continue to serve as favorite layering tools. And it's time to get furry. Leather, denim, and studded vests are too weak right now — it's high time fashion meets function. I recently scored a cheap blond fur vest from American Eagle Outfitters, it even has a cute plaid lining. I've pretty much been throwing it over everything, and I'm trying to find a chichi enough event to wear it with a long gown a la Elizabeth Hurley. But Nicole Richie models it for everyday, if you can stop staring at her mammoth white Balenciaga and focus on her foxy furry.
The unstoppable Victoria Beckham is at it again in yet another smokin' hot ensemble. Not only is she donning an on-trend Winter wide brim, peep her luscious leather trench. It's the crème de la crème of outerwear. She'll have no problem crushing the bone-chilling temperatures and gusty winds in this leather baby. Yes, such buttery soft goodness is pricey, but think of it as a lifetime investment. You know I will. Side note: how sexy is it to don a mini underneath it all?
AnnaLynne was all smiles as she was seen heading to a party at Mel's Diner in LA. Whether she's on again or off with her flame Kellan Lutz, she's still breaking hearts with this cute look. Steal her style with a pair of denim-colored tights, a simple white tank, and a tan vest. Multi-colored red flats finish it off. Shop it all now.
Leggings lovers unite. I must admit, I was unsure about denim leggings until I tried on a pair. Let's just say I was very pleasantly surprised. Not only do they look like skinny jeans, they're much more comfortable. I like wearing my Charley 5.0 leggings with a top and blazer for a more polished look, and with flip-flops and a tee when I'm feeling like a surfita. You might be resistant, but don't knock it until you try it . . .
I have a soft spot for Members Only. Back in the day, I rocked the Midwest in my khaki Members Only jacket. In recent times, my nostalgic nature got the best of me, and I strolled on over to eBay to purchase a larger version of the jacket to fit my adult body. I still love it, and wear it often. And now, the iconic brand, who recently launched a denim collection is now coming out with a line of brightly colored accessories, including some fun beauty bags ($28). The bags, just out now, include Turquoise, Fuchsia, Black Mock Crocodile, Metallic Snake, and Leopard Patent. There's no denying the '80s throwback style. Just add Journey and you're all set.
I remember wearing my Members Only nylon jacket in high school thinking I was the coolest kid in town. Well, times have changed, and so has Members Only. Come Spring, the company will be offering up some cool denim. The collection, retailing at $140 for a pair, will focus on skinny-leg cuts and shorts made of Japanese denim. With eight styles in tow, look forward to seeing a variety of embellishments and colors. Interested? The line will be available at high-end specialty stores such as Nordstrom and Intermix. I'm digging those ripped jeans seen left. Holey jean lovers unite!
90210 cutie Jessica Stroup is looking subtly tough in her baby blue leather jacket. Not to mention this jacket makes her baby blues pop. Gorgeous. You've probably already snatched up a black leather jacket, and if you're craving more buttery leather, shake things up with a colored leather jacket. I recommend sticking to jewel tones — purple, blue, burgundy — or neutrals. Let's face it: when it comes to leather, happy colors like orange and yellow just don't fly.

"When you put it on...something happens." Yeah, you become a skinny white dude with permed hair and a porn stache--without the hipster irony. Anthony Geary put his "General Hospital" acting to good use in this commercial from 1982. I really love when he and his be-fro'd lady friend both go off into the sunset in tuxedo shirts, bow ties and, of course, black Members Only jackets. Classy.
