Transition from summer to fall with ease. Go vegan, faux real. A rough-and-tough synthetic leather jacket with faux fur collar is a timeless staple. Pair it with a delicate lace-trimmed tee tucked underneath and you’ve just become a full-fledged style icon. Classic blue jeans and buckled riding boots keep things casual for a meet-up with friends or an afternoon lunch date. You’ll be outside crunching fallen leaves on the pavement in no time.

This post comes from our Paris-based friend, Madeline Baillieux!
Typical Parisian street style is alluring, sultry, and chic, yet there’s simplicity in the styling that makes each look feel attainable. Continue reading
Taylor Swift is the spokeswoman for the Spring 2015 Keds campaign, and we think the brand couldn’t have chosen a better fit. She never goes out of style, and neither do these cute little canvas sneakers that have been in fashion since the 1950s. So we started thinking, what if Taylor paired her impeccable daily street style with these classic plimsolls all the time? It became clear, you can style Keds with literally any outfit and still look chic.
Champion Basics in Dark Grey
The verdict: Taylor may have chosen the wrong shoes for the occasion here. Climbing on mossy rocks in heels? We’ll opt for Keds any day of the week. Plus, the grey classics would look oh-so-cute in coordination with her sporty Bill Murray sweater.
How you should style them: Slip into your bathing suit and your fave pair of Keds on a lazy Saturday morning. Layer a comfy sweatshirt and skater skirt on top and start heading for the beach. With the ocean breeze in your hair and cushioned soles at your feet, you just might feel up for a dip in the water.
I mean, technically, you might be wearing your boyfriend’s polos, but with all the potential you have to style them, they’re bound to look flirty and cute, like they were made for you. Whether you go for a women’s style or you start sifting through the men’s department now, remember, you’re not buying it for your boyfriend. This collared tee is all yours. It’s the ladies’ turn to shine in this sporty-chic, goes-with-anything top.
We’ve gathered up photos from five of our favorite fashion bloggers as inspiration. These girls rock the look with the utmost confidence and ease. Style goals.

Sometimes we simply need to have a relaxed girls’ night out. Hushed chit-chat between friends in the corner booth. Margaritas with extra lime. Loud belly laughs. The occasional dance intermission. This kind of celebration requires the right uniform.
Slip into this Desigual graphic top and feel edgy, sexy, and comfortable (at the same time)! The cute sequin details, seductive scoop neckline, and trendy oversized fit will make this an instant classic for happy hour. Accompanied by jeans that stretch to fit your body perfectly, you’ll feel carefree enough to stay out all night. Style these booties folded down to showcase the glitter speckles or standing up for a more structured look — it’s your choice. Either way, the chunky heel and smooth leather construction will do you no wrong.
Wear your hair in a messy braid, slick pony, or free falling across your shoulders, but don’t forget the pop of color on your lips. Any shade of red is classic and stunning against a dark palette, so don’t be afraid to be bold! Our model Raeshae executed this look flawlessly and with minimal effort. Let your clothes do the talking.

Tough does not mean masculine, so don’t be afraid to incorporate menswear-inspired pieces into your look. A quilted leather jacket is timeless and effortlessly cool on top of any outfit, especially a loose-fitting top and the perfect skinnies. Embrace your curves and your womanly edge. Accessorize with rugged buckled boots and a smart crossbody bag to create a look that’s boiling over with confidence. Keep it neutral with a black-grey-white color palette, but make a loud statement at the same time, like British model Cara Delevingne, who really doesn’t care what anyone thinks of her. Refreshingly authentic.

As the temperatures drop, we learn how to layer up! We’re talking a no-fuss, practical wardrobe to survive the cold months with ease. Sensible chunky booties, second-skin jeans, and oversized coats sum it up. But how does one perfect the formula for easy outfits that are put-together but adaptable to the unpredictable nature of day-to-day life? We look to style icons like Emma Stone. Ever since her move to New York City for her Broadway debut in Cabaret, her closet has been filled with staple pieces made for someone who has places to go and people to see. Even if you’re not headlining a hit musical or constantly being photographed whenever your plane touches down, you can learn a thing or two from Emma’s best city looks. As long as you have a good assortment of neutral items in your closet, this look will never fail.
