H&M's latest trend story casts Joan Smalls as the face of its black and white — and totally romantic — new narrative. The retailer proves that the season's must-have color duo is hardly two-dimensional in its aptly titled Romantic Edge lookbook. The looks showcase the supermodel in both smart, snappy black and white prints and softer white dresses and lace, as well as tough-girl (faux) leather jackets. It's easy to get lost just staring at the gorgeous photography (like those shots of Miss Smalls making her way down a flower-covered stairway), but you won't want to lose sight of the styling lessons at work here. Keep clicking for a little H&M-guided how-to in mixing prints and pulling off the hard-meets-soft approach to dressing — it's all inside.
Loeffler Randall had us with its perfect Fall boot, endless iterations of sweet flats, and most recently its lineup of cool-girl Rider bags — fortunately for us, the Loeffler Randall Pre-Fall 2013 collection is stocked with fresh updates on the staples we love. This time around, creative director Jessie Randall drew inspiration from Frida Kahlo's androgyny — a theme you can see in the mix of block-heeled, cutout boots and lace-up booties. As for the details, Randall taps into the artist's Southwestern heritage, giving the Rider, the Shooter bag, and more of our favorites fresh white and black contrasts, washes of bright printed color, and great natural leather finishes. Suffice it to say, Loeffler Randall strikes again with another round of covet-worthy gear to wear from now through Fall. Click on for a first look at all the goodies and the Pre-Fall lookbook — then click over to Loeffler Randall to shop.

Zara's May 2013 lookbook goes a little something like this: statement denim, fresh hues (both bright and light), and pops of fun prints. Starting with denim, we're smitten with two circle skirts that are perfectly retro. And when it comes to color palette, shades of cobalt, orange, crisp white, and baby pink should cover all the style-setter bases. Floral prints and stripes can be found on suits, skirts, and trousers, while another batch of sleek oversize clutches maintain their status as the perfect day-to-night accessory. For all this — plus a closer look at the Zara's signature cool-girl styling in action — click on for the complete lookbook now.
Thank goodness it's Friday, because Doutzen Kroes's latest turn as the face of H&M's High Summer campaign makes us want to be gallivanting on some far-off shore, too. Sure, Beyoncé may have heated things up in the brand's Summer kickoff campaign, but this Terry Richardson-shot spread is all sunshine, perfectly tousled beach hair, and of course, beach-bound essentials — with Tulum, Mexico, as the backdrop. Inside, Kroes shows off a cool mix of easy cover-ups, belted and accented with statement jewelry, and truth be told, there's really not much more you need than that. A look at the H&M High Summer campaign, as well as our favorite picks from the collection, here.
Summer is officially on our brains, and we can't think of better way to delve in than with a major dose of Missoni. As if the fashion powerhouse hasn't provided enough eye candy before, there's a ton more zigzags and bright colors to get us excited for sunnier days. From bikinis to one-pieces to minidresses to rompers, and even visors and baseball caps, this is one collection you'll keep wanting to stare at. And even if you can't afford every single piece, it's still fun to draw inspiration for your upcoming vacation wardrobe. Ready? Head inside to experience Missoni's Summer beachwear 2013 lookbook now.
J.Crew's high-end Collection lineup always elicits a ton of "oohs" and "ahhs" at every Fashion Week showing. And who can blame us? With embellishments and fancy finishes aplenty, we immediately want to buy each and every single piece — stat. But once the looks hit stores (and once we see the hefty price tags), it takes a little more than Jenna Lyons's expert styling for us to fork over the big bucks for a piece of the collection. That being said, we're taking a zoomed-in look at the latest J.Crew Collection lookbook and breaking down the gorgeous looks really worth your hard-earned cash — and what you should consider skipping. Just step inside for our complete guide to buying smart.
Statement pieces plus basics give way to one pretty flawless (and pretty easy) outfit formula. That's what you'll learn in H&M's latest Spring styling lookbook, where t-shirts, staple cotton maxi skirts, and denim cutoffs are reinvented with embellished tops, textured jackets, and printed miniskirts. It's the "it doesn't take much" approach to elevated dressing that's employed here — just a hint of bohemian print on a sweatshirt or a touch of lace on a skirt has a major effect on how the whole outfit adds up (even when the other half of that look is just a pair of your favorite well-worn Summer shorts). And if you're looking for serious outfit perks that come in the form of just one great piece, you'll want to check out the label's graphic-printed t-shirt dress or revamp on the heat-wave-ready LBD. Just click through to see Frida Gustavsson showing off the latest Spring pieces — and the styling lessons that come with them.
As far as festival wardrobes go, the Free People Spring lineup comes pretty close to perfect. First, it brought us a beachy shoot with both Crystal Renn and Ieva Laguna cast as bohemian muses for the April catalog. Now, its newly released festival-inspired lookbook (with Martha Hunt playing cool-girl-gone-hippie) provides a Coachella-perfect selection of gauzy maxi dresses, embroidered tunics, crop tops, and printed swimwear. In short, if you're packing your bags for the second weekend at Coachella — or gearing up for any outdoor concerts — this lookbook comes just in time to inspire you as you plan your outfits. Sure, these collections also look to romance and some retro bombshell-inspired styling, but any one of these pieces could take on that quintessential festival feel with the right pair of ankle boots. Get a glimpse of it all when you keep clicking.
