Our favorite spring accessory trend: floral hair accessories. The styles on our radar -- intricate floral headbands, teeny tiny daisy adhesives, hyacinth clips and soft rose barrettes -- are flirty and feminine, of course, but understated and sophisticated for a look you can pull off every day.   read more

Now, This Is How You Wear a Crop Top

After flight cancellations, subzero temperatures and polar vortexes, spring can't come soon enough. Once the sun decides to grace us with its presence, it's tempting to shed every layer and flaunt as much skin as possible, but keep in mind that spring -- your closet's transitional period -- is not the same as spring break. Take a cue from the celebrities making their post-awards-season rounds. Instead of pairing their belly-baring tops with thigh-skimming skirts or cutoffs, they opt for modest bottoms to slowly transition the look into spring. Need proof that the crop trend can be less Coachella-swimsuit-cover-up and more sophisticated chic? Click ahead for some serious style inspiration on how to master a tasteful pop of skin.   read more

Add This Ingredient to Your Nightly Skin Care Routine Now

You know all about antioxidants. Wearing one every day is almost as important as applying SPF.

Try This Trend: Your Initials --> Here

Wearing anything embroidered with your initials may seem like toddler onesie territory, but monogrammed accessories are hot right now. Designers like Ralph Lauren and Burberry are in on it, and the fashion savvy are snapping up personalized pieces of all sorts -- from purses and ponchos to necklaces and statement rings. Instead of brandishing a designer label, think of it as flaunting your very own logo. Online clothing stores like KItson and jewelry websites like Etsy and Nordstrom are offering customers the option to sew or stamp initials on just about anything right now. If the trend seems a bit too preppy, follow Kourtney Kardashian's lead and wear your kiddo's initials on a necklace.   read more
