Wearing Socks With Shoes Is Officially On Trend

By Cailyn Cox

You wear socks with your sneakers or underneath your boots, but who says they have to be limited to only certain styles? The good news is they're not--and this means you can wear your summer shoes well into winter without freezing your toes off.

Wearing visible socks with shoes may seem like an odd mix, one that for many years was frowned upon, but the fashion world has evolved and now deems this combination perfectly acceptable, chic even.

This is how to rock your socks:

Ash & Ember Eye Soot: Nightshade

Sometimes you want makeup that falls in between powder and cream -- something substantial that won't cake or look dusty.

And that velvety texture will last all day, so you won't have to worry about smudging it off on your sleeve.

Oh, We're Still Going To Be Late For That Meeting But We're Gonna Look Fab

It's summer, and while you don't really wants to be reminded that you've got to balance your fun in the sun with adult things like work and errands, a good looking time piece, like this Rumbatime Gramercy Watch, will help you keep track of the hour so you don't breathlessly blow in to a meeting ten minutes late because you were basking in the warmth of an al fresco lunch. Who am I kidding? That'll probably still happen, but at least you'll look put together when you wear it thanks to its chic braided band and rose gold accents.

Brooklyn Decker Rocks Leather and Lace

By Rebecca Howard

"One jacket to rule them all," declared Vogue, sounding a bit Tolkien-ish for a fashion mag. Still, we can't argue that description of the Gucci stunner which Brooklyn Decker wore out on the town in New York City. Decker must have taken her inspiration from that classic collaboration between Stevie Nicks and Don Henley: "Give to me your leather; take from me my lace." It's not likely she'll be giving away this $13,000 jacket anytime soon, nor the Etro tiered lace dress or Tabitha Simmons velvet flats which pair so perfectly with it.

These 80s Trends Are Back, And They're Better Than Ever

By Cailyn Cox

If we were forced to make one fashion prediction for 2016, it would be that the '80s are going to be the throwback choice for the year, because we've already seen this happen on the runways.
There's been a heavy resurgence of a number of '80s trends, but as with the cyclical nature of the fashion world, the original styles have been updated and reinvented.

Designers, including Isabel Marant, Lanvin, Saint Laurent and Balenciaga, took inspiration from the loud fashion decade to bring us super bright and dramatically bold color combinations, pieces adorned with sequins and wide belts, strong and defined shoulders, flouncy silhouettes and deliciously oversized sweaters and coats.

But it's not just the fashion houses that have seen a major 80s revival, the street style world has too.

And below are 4 of the most popular 80s inspired trends to try out:
