8 Backpacks Sleek Enough to Wear to Work

After watching all the spring/summer 2014 runway shows from New York Fashion Week I could have kicked myself. I instantly regretted giving away my collection of leather, denim and brightly colored backpacks from my school years.

The 8 Top Resort Wear Trends for 2015

The words "resort wear" tend to mislead people when it comes time for yet another season of ubiquitous fashion shows.

After months of boots and closed-toe shoes, you can finally let your toes wriggle out of hibernation (and show off your new pedi).

Ear jackets are the slightly subdued, classier version of last summer's big and bold ear cuffs (they were all over the punk-themed Met Gala red carpet). Just slip them onto any earring post. Our favorite thing about this accessory trend? They're appropriate for any occasion, from the red carpet to the boardroom. Here's why.   read more
