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.

Topshop has launched its festival collection inspired by Kate Bosworth today, which ultimately plays into the brand's multidimensional, interactive Summer campaign. From the acid-washed denim dresses and buckle-strap wedges to the pink-dipped feather angel wings, silver slip dresses (made for frolicking), and essential white separates, the lineup has Bosworth's mark on every piece.
"To gain learning experience from the Topshop design team has been a great opportunity for me. Our intent was to create fresh, wearable, and effortless festival pieces. I am proud of our work together and I adore these pieces," Bosworth said. Along with the collection debut, a short film shot by Bosworth's fiancé, Michael Polish, entitled The Road to Coachella, was released today, too. The dreamy video reveals Kate Bosworth roaming Mono Lake, CA, in a handful of effortlessly styled Topshop looks.

Let's just cut to the chase — oil stains don't have to be the death knell of your soiled clothes. In fact, it's pretty easy to rid those pesky grease spots from your favorite tees and jeans with our quick five-step SOS drill. Just remember: at the moment of stain disaster, try not to panic, don't despair, and definitely avoid rubbing at the stain. Do those three things at the outset and you're already off to a running start. We promise, there's life after olive oil spillage and butter-related crimes, and our tips below will not only help you combat those oil stains, they'll lead you straight to stain removal victory.
- Pre-pretreat it. Before the real battle begins, cover the stain with cornstarch and let it soak for at least 30 minutes. Then, simply shake off the excess powder before heading to step two.
- Shout it out. There's a reason why this brand has become a household name — Shout is awesome. It literally saves (clothes') lives. In regards to oil stains, you want to spray the area with a solvent-based stain remover, like Shout Advanced Stain Remover Trigger Spray ($5), and gently blot.
