We’re talking all your favorite gals – Rachel Comey, Caron Callahan, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Lauren Manoogian, and more.

Travel Style 101

Whether you are jetting off to somewhere exciting or heading to visit family and friends for the holidays, you are likely going to be facing the airport. That crazy place filled with the hectic masses and lost baggage queues that stretch across terminals. Waiting for your inevitably delayed flight is stressful for sure, so getting dressed for the event shouldn’t be. We’ve rounded up a few things that could help. Think slip-on mules for getting through security quickly, a scarf that doubles as a blanket (flights can be long, really long), and a hands-free bag that fits all of your important goods. This might be your airplane outfit, but it’s also your destination outfit. You never know who you might run into at baggage claim.

13 Outfits To Get You Through To 2017

It’s been 352 days of outfits and we’re kind of ready to get 2016 over with. Don’t get us wrong, we love diving into our closets and pulling together pieces that make us want to sneak in a bunch of mirror selfies before leaving to work. But we’re tired and whenever our inspiration starts to lag, we know it’s time to defer to the experts. We’ve rounded up 13 outfits from some of our favorite boutiques and designer pals. These easy yet undoubtedly stylish step-by-step outfits will have us cruising through to 2017.

There is nothing better than finding vintage jeans that fit you like a glove. Work those ’90s vibes by pairing them with a colorful sweater and menswear-inspired lace-ups.

If you haven’t stored away all of your spring/summer clothes grab that t-shirt dress and layer a turtleneck underneath it. Accessorize with loafers and your favorite sunglasses.

We’ve said it a few times: having a statement coat this winter is a must. Throw it over top of pretty much anything and you’re good to go.

So it’s officially December and the holiday events are starting to fill up your calendar with everything from family gatherings to Secret Santa at your office.

We’ve rounded up our best gifts for under $100 because you shouldn’t have to break the bank to get the people in your life something unique.

Make A Statement: Jewelry For Winter

It’s hard to believe that it is almost time to decorate our Christmas trees. Of course we have been concentrating on more important things to decorate this winter. Yes, we are talking about ourselves. From necklaces to earrings to bracelets, we’ve got endless options to help you get decked out for the season. Now we know it’s a difficult time of year to show off your bling due to the thousands of layers, but adding the right finishing pieces will help make you feel less like an abominable snowman and more like accessory queen Iris Apfel. Our top three? Go for big statement necklaces that stand out between your scarf and coat, unique bangles that can be worn over gloves or cool drop earrings that peek out from your beanie.

“I think jewelry can change an outfit more than anything else. Transformation, punch, individuality: one or all of the above are why you should wear jewelry.” – Iris Apfel

 

Helen Yu Shares Her Personal Picks From Our Kids Pop-Up

Helen Yu and her irresistibly cute daughter Marni are the complete mother daughter duo. Spending almost every minute together, their style impacts one another in the best of ways. Usually caught wearing jeans, a blazer, Martiniano shoes, and her favorite Celine bag, Helen Yu has tomboy chic style on lock. Obviously learning from her mother, Marni’s sense of style is so on-point that she regularly helps mom pick out the best shoes for an outfit. We couldn’t resist asking Helen for her personal favorites from our kids pop-up shop. With Marni in mind, she picked six charmingly cool pieces.

The Best Layering Turtlenecks In Every Color

Let’s be honest: turtlenecks haven’t always had the best rep. They’ve been called names like ‘frumpy’ and ‘dorky’, and are constantly associated with your elderly grandmother. But times have changed. Once just reminiscing about their ’70s heyday, turtlenecks have made a serious comeback. They’ve made it onto the runways (via Christian Dior, Creatures of the Wind and Tory Burch) and into pretty much all of our favorite, fashion-forward boutiques. And this season they are taking on an important role as the lead layering piece. Throw them under a dress, an oversized sweater or even a basic tee, and you’ve made your outfit winter ready and another step cooler. We’ve selected our favorite layering turtlenecks in every color because we’re convinced you’ll need them all this season.

Cool-Kid Picks From Angela Deviatova-Hageali

We have a huge style crush on Angela Deviatova-Hageali of @mommyplaysdressup. As a mother of two boys, dressing for comfort and practicality is key for her but that doesn’t stop her from taking risks. Her usual mix of classic and minimalist style is often paired with unusual color combinations and textures making each and every outfit stand out. We thought she might have a little sartorial wisdom to pass on to the next generation, so we asked for her own personal favorites from our kids pop-up shop. Her picks are a reflection of what her two boys (and most kids) like: “Clothes that are comfortable and non-fussy.”

Top 3 Must-Have Winter Scarves, Gloves And Hats

We’ve all got that box of trusty winter accessories in the back of our closet. It’s filled with your favorite staples that you can’t get rid of and old Christmas gifts from those relatives you really only see around the holidays. Well, we think it is time that box got an upgrade. Winter is the best time to accessorize mostly because it’s pretty much essential to keeping warm. We’ve pulled together our favorite must-have scarves, gloves and hats so you can survive winter in style. Mix it up this year with different textures and patterns, try fingerless gloves (we promise they still keep you warm), and move beyond your basic black beanie with new styles you thought you’d never try. With these accessories within reach, you’ll actually want to abandon the couch, get outside and take on the cold.
