We're always so quick to reach for our favorite pair of jeans, but this Spring, we're also making it a point to grab equally cool denim dresses. One part cool-girl, one part tomboy, these picks are all grown-up — and a far cry from any of the versions you may have sported in middle school. Even if you pick a dressier cut with intricate details à la street-style star Miroslava Duma, pictured in Chanel, the staple fabric will always lend a more relaxed vibe, so you can wear it day or night. Right now we're all about 14 denim dresses that feature unique details like patchwork, ruffles, pleats, ties, and more, but if you're a minimalist, we've got you covered, too. Find your perfect version when you keep clicking.
When Audrey Tautou brought the spark and sophisticated Parisian style of Coco Chanel to brazen life in the flick Coco Before Chanel, we got hooked on the iconic designer in her earlier years. How to adopt Coco's youthful vitality and style? It's about a smart jacket, a string of pearls, the ubiquitous striped top, and lots of menswear elements: wide trousers, vests, a hat. To make it modern, add casual elements to these more tailored, classic pieces. For example, mix a boucle jacket with a t-shirt, skinny jeans, and brogues. Or try wide-leg trousers with a slouchy silk shirt and tons of bracelets. We've gathered the best elements for a chic, ladylike wardrobe that is just a little smart 'n' sassy. Coco, we hope you would approve.
There are basic tees, and there are not-so-basic ones. Can you guess which category these RED Valentino bow tees ($165-$240) fall into? You got it. While these are totally whimsical and fun to look at, purchasing and wearing them is a whole other story, especially since they don't come cheap. One thing's for sure — they would definitely turn heads, for good or for bad. What's the verdict, do you love it or hate it?
Of all the hotties at the Mulberry party in LA last night, Jessica Stroup looked like she had the most fun. The 90210 star was all smiles wearing a tenacious textural 'fit composed of an embellished black skirt, v-neck halter top, and lace cardi. Black pumps, a matching clutch, and a chunky silver ring are her accompaniments of choice. It's all black — and far from basic.

You don't have to be the boy who never grows up to enjoy this trend; in fact, this style is for girls of all ages. While the collar keeps you covered, the addition of a cap sleeve, a sheer neckline, or some sultry sequins adds a hint of sexiness. Try the trend in black with these pieces.
Old school fabric tweed is an ideal material for winter - it is moisture resistant, very durable, and very cute. Tweed automatically adds grace and sophistication, and is a fun fabric to wear in a more corporate work environment. These days, tweed is spun in different colors and patterns so it is no longer a drab, rugged Scottish man's material. And, who can forget the woman who glamorized this fabric by donning it with pearls and gardenia flowers, Coco Chanel?! Here is my designer and non-designer tweed picks:
