Looking for a game-changing Fall piece? The leather skirt (real or faux), gives off an undeniably cool vibe for the season, and we're loving all the options readily available to shop. Couple one of our picks — ranging from ladylike midis to flirty minis — with a chunky knit top and ankle boots for a high-impact textural look. Or, contrast the slick trend with a crisp collared blouse and ladylike pumps for a day at the office. Find your perfect piece right now.
We're going to be honest: the second we heard about the Phillip Lim for Target collaboration, we immediately started thinking about the bags. Lim told us that he wanted everything to be "familiar but different" from his eponymous collection, and to that end, he created accessories that have the same spirit of his covetable originals but with a twist — like a Mini Pashli satchel with a zip top. The Target collection's Drawstring Carry-All tote nods at the functionality of Lim's Scout Drawstring Hobo.
Unsurprisingly, it took less than a day for the collection to sell out online, but we have a feeling the bags will be popping up here and there in stores. And when all else fails — there's always eBay!
Phillip Lim has been saying for months that his collaboration with Target was designed for modern people on the go. And while he told us picking a favorite piece from the offering would be "like picking a favorite child," he's pretty pleased with the undergarments."I think what tickles my fancy now is all the grab-and-go packs," Lim said at a preview of the collection on Monday. "You know, cause, it's like, literally, I use it myself. Boxers, briefs, t-shirts, and socks that all match. I think that there's something very luxurious about having things that match. And it's easy to pick the first thing to put on, but sometimes it's about the initial thing you put on."
Lim also talked with us about the challenges of designing for Target, and how he referenced his own history while offering his customers something new. Read on for more of Lim's thoughts on the collaboration.
Flattering, timeless, and effortlessly romantic are just some of the key reasons why you should invest in a dramatic draped piece. Get into the fold with chic options ranging from Helmut Lang's and BCBG Max Azria's draped tops to Issa's and Donna Karan New York's gorgeous dresses. We're also coveting IRO's tweed draped jacket, Rick Owens's dramatic jersey skirt for an edgier take on the trend, and 3.1 Phillip Lim's polished, jewel-adorned top for a work-appropriate option.
If Sandy and Danny united in the streets of Tokyo, in 2013, wearing really, really cool clothes (we're talking thigh-high boots to rival Sandy's leather leggings), then this is what it would look like. 3.1 Phillip Lim staged Sonomama, a fast-paced fashion showdown set to the beat of electric guitar, for its second Fall campaign.
Starring Kiko Mizuhara, Louis Simonon (son of Clash guitarist Paul Simonon), and the rockabilly gang Black Shadow, Eduard Grau's film "embodies the nonchalant ease and eclectic style of the partners, girlfriends, and lovers of the racer generation." Paired with But Sou Lai's shots, the result is the kind of coolness that transcends decades. Preview the Fall campaign images below.

We're all about Summer fun, but sometimes that's difficult to do in heels. That's where the borrowed-from-the-boys oxford comes in. The lower-heel profile makes them comfortable, but don't fret, they don't lose an ounce of cool. Whether the silhouette is classic (think brogue detailing and a patent finish) or culls fashion-forward accents like metallic shine, exotic texture, leather cutouts, or colorblocking, there's certainly a more dynamic way to interpret (read: wear) the flat oxford look. Luckily, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and even Zara have all crafted their own versions to appeal to a handful of style personalities. As for execution? Remember that these shoes work for day and night — and as long as you show a little ankle (at the very least), you're good to go. Click on for 19 of our favorite Summer oxford picks now.

The 3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2014 collection seemed to be put together for girls who enjoy being girls, be it a skirted, captain-of-the-cheerleaders type or someone who prefers her femininity done in suiting à la Annie Hall. There were long and short dresses mixed with flared miniskirts and trousers ready to be worn with your most statement-making heels. Standout factors that belong to the ladies? Metallic purple pieces and a bomber jacket covered with three-dimensional flowers.
Oh, and for those whose curiosity is still piqued by the mention of a Pashli backpack, it's true: the label's runaway accessory hit (helping them claim a CFDA award!) is reborn.
