Mango just released its March lookbook, and it's brimming with affordable Spring styling possibilities. Toasting the start of a new season, the retailer is offering up sleek separates for all of your upcoming events. Printed jumpsuits for a rooftop party, sleek trousers for your next power meeting, and red-hot shorts for weekend escapes to the park (or beach, if you're lucky). There are also a few fringed pullovers and silky printed tops that will instantly update any look. Click on to see the complete lookbook, then start shopping.
Here to help you kick-start your warm-weather wardrobe is Madewell's new Spring catalog stories. The latest installment features Ruby Aldridge working it in the brand's latest wares. This season, Madewell's all about mixing stripes with florals, lace with denim, and cute tees with silky skirts — all with a sportif twist. With pastel baseball caps, skateboards, and backpacks serving as accessories, it's clearly looking like a casual cool season to come. Click on to see the latest from Madewell, plus covet-worthy denim (highlighting its namesake line, its Rivet & Thread heritage capsule collection, and ultraluxe handmade pieces from Chimala) from the first catalog installment.
The latest batch of Liberty Art Fabrics for J.Crew pieces have supplied us with ample reason to start the process of styling out some easy, Spring-friendly looks. These sleek tailored essentials, covered in even brighter floral-print patterns, are actually much easier to mix and match than you might (initially) think. For the casual style-setter, opt for subtle stripes paired with bold floral shorts. For the sophisticate, don't discount the power of a beautifully embellished Peter Pan collar and denim jacket combo to hold its own against floral pumps. And for the girl who borrows from the boys, there's nothing a slick metallic oxford and two-toned jean trouser can't do to punch up a floral-infused tee. Click on for our styling tips — inspired by the Liberty Art Fabrics for J.Crew lineup — plus the complete Spring '13 lookbook inside.
Out with the cold — and in with the vibrant colors, statement prints, and bright pops of white. Here to help you get in the right state of mind is Loft's newly unveiled Summer lookbook. The brand has revamped its style profile with the help of Karolina Kurkova as the face of its new campaign, showing off a range of floral pencil skirts, striped tops, and pastel printed jeans. Even more, there's pretty eyelet dresses, fun jewelry, and sandals to help you kick off the Spring/Summer party season. Want to see what else is in store from Loft?

Pardon the Fashion Week interruption, but the shots of Miranda Kerr for Victoria's Secret's bridal lingerie collection have us wondering (yet again) just how does she do it? The flawless supermodel plays the part of blushing bride for the retailer's intimates collection — and could make just about anyone want a piece of bridal lingerie. Sure, some of this set would be hard to spin as just some sexy underthings, like the "I do"-embellished tank and matching "bride"-emblazoned panties, but the lace-trimmed shorts, camisole, and bra (minus the veils and fascinators), and the striped satin pj's would be just as pretty in any girl's underwear drawer — regardless of relationship status. Not convinced? Click through to see every gorgeous look right here, then head over to Victoria's Secret to shop your favorites.
Spring '13 looks bright, peppy, and printed — plus totally affordable — thanks to Target's latest lineup. The retailer just released a full look at its upcoming collection, and it's brimming with color, pattern, and current trends (like a pair of metallic high-tops), albeit in the most wearable iterations. Abstract prints make their appearance on graphic pencil skirts you can take from work to play, and sweet polka-dots cover collared blouses. And if you're looking for staples like Spring denim, then you can load up on the line's chambray shirts or distressed boyfriend jeans. Note: beyond the mix-and-match separates for your day-to-day, you'll want to hone in on the label's accessories. This crop of bright crossbody bags and cool wedges could add interest to anything you pick up from the Spring line — not to mention the pieces already in your closet that are looking for a seasonal pick-me-up. Click through to see it all now, then head online or into Target stores to shop it when the collection hits shelves later this month.
Zara just released its February TRF lookbook, filled with covetable Spring pieces we'd like to wear, well, now. Yes, there might still be snow on the streets, but there's no harm in stocking up for the warmer weather (and Summer concert season) ahead. That said, feast your eyes on the Spanish retailer's slick array of embroidered jackets, crystal-embellished tops, and enough denim to last you all season long. The latter highlighted some irresistibly cool nomad and dot-print patterns on an array of bleached jeans. Meanwhile, there are enough cutoff shorts to take you to Coachella, Central Park's Concert Series, and beyond. See our top three picks below, then click on to see the complete lookbook.
- We'd like to pair this silky embroidered sweatshirt with a pencil skirt and heels for a fun twist on office dressing.
- How gorgeous is the floral detailing on this quilted moto jacket? It's the perfect Spring statement piece.
- This beaded military vest was made for Coachella. Channel the Kate Moss effect and pair it with cutoffs, a tank, and moto boots.
It's hardly fair when we're still bundling up, but H&M's forecasting a Summer that's rife with breezy pants and maxis, printed florals, and a little leg. The brand is giving our warm-weather styling a dose of the Far East with open, kimono-style jackets and gauzy, slouchy pants. Even in the accessories, we get a little of that Asian infusion — beautiful tasseled earrings and flat, minimalist sandals to complement those inspired silhouettes. For a more traditional nod to Summer, look to the line's well-worn denim shorts, albeit finished with socks and heels (not your usual beachy espadrilles). Together, it's both laid-back and modern — and like the clothing we most look forward to wearing in Summer, it's easy. Click on to see the gorgeous Julia Hafstrom show off the collection.
With New York Fashion Week just a few short days away, Fall '13 collections are rolling in at a fast pace. Lover just released its Fall '13 lookbook, showing off its gorgeous ladylike-meets-cool offerings. Zeroing in on its love for mixing leather with lace, the Aussie-based brand showcased body-conscious lace dresses and separates, chic laser-cut leather tops, along with a sharp mix of tailored blazers and trousers. The results? Pieces we can't wait to slip into come Fall. Read below for our top looks from the collection, then peruse the complete lookbook in the slideshow and tell us which is your favorite in comments.
- This sleek all white ensemble is proof that you can wear white in the Winter — and with a seriously chic effect at that.
- We'd love to see Emma Watson or Chloë Grace Moretz wearing this gorgeous sky-blue lace number at their next red carpet appearance.
- This laser-cut fit-and-flare dress evokes a feminine-cool quality we'd like to channel ASAP.
A first glimpse of Zimmermann's Spring '13 lineup is almost enough to make us ditch our Winter coats and reach for one of the collection's breezy printed dresses — almost. Since the temperatures won't allow for that kind of wardrobe changeup, we'll live vicariously through the label's new In Concert collection lookbook (and hope for an early Spring). Thanks to designer Nicky Zimmermann's eye for beautiful prints, feminine cuts, and soft leather, we have a lot to look forward to. In fact, the mix of tomboy and boho — right down to the easy styling, finished with ankle boots and floppy hats — is the kind of carefree, cool-girl glamour you might employ on the concert circuit in just a few short months (Coachella, anyone?). Though some of it might be just as well suited to your dressier events, like a polished shorts suit, floral sheaths, or even this sheer little number if you're looking to channel Lea Michele's sexy red-carpet appearance. Flip through every awesome look right here — then get ready to shop when the collection debuts Feb. 4.
