Jennifer Garner and youngest daughter Seraphina spent some time in LA together, with the mom looking impeccably chic in her Joie snake-print blouse ($228) and Lanvin taupe suede boots ($1,450). What we love most about Jennifer's top is that it's super versatile, meaning it can be worn for day or night, work or play. You can wear it with jeans over the weekend, with trousers at work, and with leather pants for a night out. Then come next Summer, you can sport it with white jeans or shorts for a crisp look. Score Jennifer's exact snake-print blouse now and it'll be a classic staple in your closet forever.
We have to admit, we are envious of the chic ensembles the cast of Gossip Girl must wear for work, including Blake Lively's latest look of geometric-print Rag & Bone jeans ($258), an oversize eggplant Forte cardigan ($412), and suede asphalt Rupert Sanderson boots ($1,295). The blond beauty mixed color and texture to perfection, but it was her unexpected blue leopard cami, two-tone suede Burberry bag, and jeweled statement necklace that took her onscreen style to new heights. Work Blake's exact cardigan, denim, and below-the-knee boots with a moody leopard tank to re-create your favorite Upper East Sider's street style.
Desert boots and booties are among the season's best — and I've been craving a pair to start off Fall. So, when I spied these supple suede Pedro Garcia Dorice Booties ($198, originally $495), I thought the search was over. With a walkable low heel and lace-up look I love, I was ready to hit the register, till the pricey tag caught my attention . . .
See the look for less after the jump.
It's no secret that over the knee boots are a major trend this fall. In addition to basic black leather, we're loving the latest styles in colorful suede. The blue suede rubber-soled boot from Barneys and Chloé's flat white version are perfect for winter weekends, while sky-high heels from Brian Atwood and Christian Louboutin feel right for a dressed-up evening out.
What's better for a lady on the go than a pair of boots with a manageable heel? Flats are all the rage for Fall, so get a head start by picking up a pair of chic low-heeled boots. There are options at all price points, with the added bonus of a little extra flair in laces and chains — if that's what you're into.
With Fall comes one of my favorite types of footwear — booties. As I perused, I came across these Emilio Pucci Open Toe High Heel Booties ($835). The sexy cutout heel cap caught my attention and I love the snazzy signature print footbed. However, it's a bit too '80s and I'm not so sure about the purple zipper. What do you think?
I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but it still confuses me when people wear tights in hot weather. Exhibit A: Kate Beckinsale while Halloween shopping. This all-black look may have worked in the evening but it certainly doesn't fly on a sunny day in LA.
If I was Kate, I would have firstly ditched the knit beanie. Unless you're in snow, rain, or San Francisco, you don't need it. Next, I would have left behind the black tights. She has nice gams and should show them off. I would have also switched the suede boots for a pair of colored flats.
How would YOU wear it?
We fell in love with "Gossip Girl" Serena van der Woodsen's killer boots the moment we laid eyes on them. In true Fab fashion, we have found them, or at least a damn similar pair! Snatch up these Chinese Laundry's "Strate" Tall Boots, on sale for $63 (originally $89). Of course, you probably won't wear them with a school uniform, but any mini skirt should do the trick. In these lovelies, you're ready to tackle the world, "Gossip Girl" style.
A dress has the ability to always put a smile on my face. LookCrook's dress me up ensemble is cheerful, fun and a bit boho — just what we need to liven up Fall. I give her props on the layering effect and the suede boots.
Here's what she has on:
- Dress: Mode Plus
- Boots: Old Navy
- Belt: Goodwill
Congrats to LookCrook!

It's no big surprise that boots are huge for Fall. There's only a handful I would consider investing in and these Tashkent by Cheyenne Cole Platform Wedges, $485, are one of them. (Thanks lilv for posting them in the Love It or Hate It? group!) Why these? I love that they're slouchy burgundy, suede and have a cutout detail at the sides. Would you take them home?
