5 Shoes to Keep Under Your Desk That Will Instantly Elevate Your Look

They often say that the first thing people notice when they meet you is your shoes. Yet, when my colleague Fashion Market Editor Kelly Connor and I were trekking back to the office last week after a round of early morning showroom appointments, attention-grabbing footwear was the last thing on my mind. I was looking haggard in an outfit I had blindly thrown together at the crack of dawn: a pair of faded black jeans, a basic button-down, and a pair of scuffed flatforms. The whole time I kept thinking “But how do French fashion editors like Emmanuelle Alt make it work?” Their uniform of choice is straightforward—a simple shirt and skinnies—and yet the overall effect is always enviably chic. “It’s the shoes,” said Connor as I look down at my chunky-soled clunkers. “A classic black pump can work wonders.” Aside from a pair of classic office-appropriate wedges that I’ve never worn (and never will), I do not own a pair of shoes that will upgrade a lazy, last-minute look—say, a pair of jeans and a classic white shirt—to something vaguely boardroom-worthy. According to Connor, there are two types of shoes to stow underneath your desk for those just-in-case moments, namely a pointed pump and a strappy heeled sandal. “These are timeless classic shoes you can throw on at a moment’s notice if you’re wearing something super casual and have a meeting or interview,” she says. “A good suede or leather pump can make jeans and T-shirt look intentional and a little bit more pulled-together even if you did just roll out of bed.” Simple enough. But what if you are into experimenting with color and texture? “It’s tricky because if the shoe is in a color or pattern you have to plan your outfit more carefully. The point of the shoe is its simplicity and versatility,” she says. Another benefit to keeping pumps at your desk besides their game-changing powers? You won’t feel guilty sneaking into work in your box-fresh Stan Smiths. Here are five sophisticated shoes to add to your closet, or desk, right now.

Now that spring is finally here, our minds have already gone on overdrive, planning all of the outdoor happy hour drinks that will fill the next six months. Between mental lists of the best $5 margaritas and chicest outdoor bars, we suddenly realized: We have nothing to wear. Among our office-appropriate suits and too-revealing-for-the-workplace minis, we need a dress that does double-duty. What's more, we need a few of them—so they can't break the bank either.

You know the dress: that throw-on-and-go that is conservative enough for a morning boardroom meeting, but flirty enough for a date night afterwards. Maybe you style a silk shirtdress with heels in the morning and sneakers at night; perhaps you layer a blazer over your sundress at work and strip it off, come drinks. After all, we can't be expected to waste precious warm-weather hours rushing home after work to change before after-hours events, can we? We've rounded up our favorite go-anywhere dresses, all under $100 so—what are you waiting for? It's time to start shopping.

12 Off-the-Shoulder Tops You Can’t Live Without This Spring

We're celebrating springtime by baring a little skin. And what better way to show off your awesome sun-kissed skin (hey, no one has to know it came from a spray tan!) than an off-the-shoulder top? It's time to pack away that parka, strip off those wool tights, and give in to the power that is the warm weather season.

While this spring trend may not exactly be fit for the workplace, it's a weekend and after-hours staple this season, for sure. By showing off your neckline and shoulders, an off-the-shoulder top is sexy and flirty while still leaving enough to the imagination. Don't go too tight with this trend: The looser, bohemian look is the way to go. Dare we even suggest it's the perfect summertime top that will instantly put you in the music festival mood, but totally wearable once you leave your mosh pit days behind you? We think so! Whether you're headed to Coachella, or simply weekend brunch closer to home, channel your inner Bianca Jagger, Kelly Kapowski, or Kendall Jenner this spring.

For the weekend, this top looks best with denim or more casual bottoms, but some sexier and more tailored styles look equally amazing with a pair of trousers or date night mini. Go for everything from silk to cotton; dramatic shaped sleeves to short eyelet ruffles.

Why The Trench Will Always Be A Classic

111

It seems only appropriate, as the rhyme suggests, that many parts of the country woke up to a rainy first day of April this morning. As we struggled with whether or not to slip into heavy wellies, or opt for a pair of skinny jeans instead of the fussy dress we originally planned for, one thing was for certain: Our look would be topped with the timeless classic trench coat.

No matter what you’re wearing underneath, a trench will always be a classic topper. We toss one over our shoulders on a rainy day and instantly feel like Brigitte Bardot or Françoise Hardy. The perfect springtime weight, in a go-with-anything neutral tan, the trench not only protects us from the elements in the chicest of ways, but is also tailored such that it will elevate your weekend denim look and pair perfectly with your office suiting.

As we await the promised May flowers that follow current April showers, we celebrate our favorite trench coat moments (and look to these fashion icons for inspiration as we shop for a new addition to our wardrobe, as well.)

Your Favorite Work Style Staple Just Got a Major Style Re-Boot for Spring

Shirting is having a moment this spring. But we're not talking about just any shirting: We're talking about next-level shirts that will amp up any look in the blink of an eye—for the office, date night, weekend, and beyond! While we love a clean white button-down for layering, can't get enough of a menswear stripe, and know the reliability of a button-down shape well, it's time to step out of the box and try something new.

A cotton button-down is always a classic. But this spring's mighty band of poplins are making a statement: They want to be noticed. Some twist and tie; others boast off-the shoulder silhouettes; still more mix-and-match materials for a style that's anything but ordinary. These new shirting shapes will give your look the extra oomph it needs as you transition your winter wardrobe to spring. For work, top a black skirt with a white shirt that ties, style an off-the-shoulder option with denim on the weekends, and go for a dramatic bell sleeve for a night out on the town. With this spring's take on the timeless shirting classic, you can't go wrong.

Jessica Alba Designed Jeans That’ll Make Your Butt Look Awesome

Jessica Alba Designed Jeans That'll Make Your Butt Look Awesome
Jessica Alba presenting her Jessica Alba x DL1961 collaboration in New York City on Tuesday.

Jessica Alba is a champion of the environment, female entrepreneurship, and all around kick-assery—but her latest cause is something especially close to our hearts: Butts.

Yes, the Dark Angel herself (who arguably has one of Hollywood's best posteriors), has partnered with denim brand DL1961 on a line of jeans with the sole aim of boosting your booty. Why, you might ask? It is, after all, a bit of a specific category.

"Because boobs come and go, but butts are always in," declared an enthusiastic Alba, as she presented her line to Glamour on Tuesday in New York City. "They're always important...and these jeans will give you that perfect apple—or peach!"

It's not surprising that Alba chose jeans as her first foray in to fashion design—after all, she's pretty much always photographed wearing some form of denim. Her goal was to create high-waisted jeans that actually flatter—and don't venture into "mom jeans" territory. "I wanted to have high-waisted jeans that look really good on all different kinds of bodies," she said. "I wanted it to be kind of tighter in the thigh, but I didn't want the booty to be pressed down. I also wanted it to be nipped in at the waist, and the pockets in the back to be tilted in a V-shape, to give you that great round, curved butt." In turn, the jeans have a contour affect, giving the illusion of height and a smaller waist and thighs.

In addition to several straight-leg styles, Alba also presented a drop-crotch chino style, an all-in-one flight suit, boyfriend jeans, and flares. What's great about the line, besides its unique derriere-enhancing properties, is that it's designed to wear from work to play, and most styles don't feature holes, whiskers, or other denim details that make the jeans look more casual. "Everything is designed to wear to work...or to the airport," she half-joked.

But let's get back to the juicy stuff (get it?) and hear Alba's truly awesome opinions on all things booty: "The butt's always been celebrated," she mused. "I don't know one man that isn't into booty. And I feel like women, more often than not, women like their butts and it's more accepted [to have a big butt]."

And eeks, what if you have a flat tush? "If you don't necessarily have a booty, these jeans will make you look like you have a bigger one," she says. "Which is nice."

Sold.

Oh, and will someone text Sir-Mix-A-Lot and let him know that all his dreams came true? Thanks.

Check out the our favorite looks from the 10-piece fall 2016 line here and all the booty boosting goodness. The line will retail from $188 to $898 (the highest price point is for leather, but most styles are priced closer to $188) at DL1961.com, as well as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Shopbop, and Bloomingdales beginning in August.

Kardashian-Level Cutout Swimsuits Totally Worth the Weird Tan Lines

Each member of the Kardashian-Jenner crew certainly has her own unique go-to styles when it comes to fashion. Kim loves a tight dress and duster coat, Kourtney and Khloe opt for high-waisted jeans and bodysuits, and Kendall and Kylie kick it in more casual styles, like distressed denim and hoodies. When it comes to swimwear, however, all of the girls land on the same page. Whether a super high neck or waist, wraparound straps, or crazy cutout one-pieces, they have amassed quite a collection of swimwear that, let's just say, will leave you with tan lines that are more interesting than most.

The thing is, though, these crazy-tan-line-suits are really fun; They're sexy and sporty at the same time, reveal just the right amount of skin without giving away too much, and give you just that extra oomph in the style department than a classic string bikini doesn't. This summer, break out of the standard swimwear mold with these suits that are totally worth the weird tan lines (though—we do suggest using a little bit more sunblock on the days you choose to lay out in one of these fashionable suits!).

7 Fashion Essentials You Should Always Buy On the Cheap

admin
197

As fashion lovers, we'll admit to busting the bank for some purchases, but we're not crazy—there are some items that don't need to be designer. Beyond that, it's actually better if they're not, especially when you're talking basics that will see a lot of wear and tear. Some pieces are worth the higher price tag (like shoes that are undeniably more comfortable and bags that were meticulously put together by hand), but others just don't warrant the credit card charge. Herewith, the closet staples on which you should always spend as little as possible.

7 Fashion Essentials You Should Always Buy On the Cheap

1. T-Shirts
A tried-and-true wardrobe staple, the plain white tee was number one on our list of Target style essentials. Stock up, and don't feel guilty if you have to toss it eventually (due to spills, stains, or other discoloration). A good rule of thumb? If something spends a lot of its life as a layering piece, hidden under other items, don't make it your investment item.

2. Trendy sunglasses
Not only are sunnies likely to get lost, but the trendier they are, the more likely you are to get sick of them (or they'll quickly feel dated). Spend more on the classic black pair you'll wear forever, but go low when doing funky shapes or vivid colors.

3. Ballet flats
As delicate as the name suggests, skimmers take a major beating. Without a thick sole or a material that's naturally impervious to wear, it's unavoidable, and, sad but true, the pricey pairs can get destroyed just as quickly as the cheapies. Bonus? When you're not worried about ruining them, you'll be better able to achieve the carefree attitude we so associate with French-girl style.

4. Thongs
Yes to spending more for a brilliantly fitting bra. No to shelling out extra for thongs. While it's important for your undies to feel good, there are too many wallet-friendly options out there to warrant spending lots on something so little.

5. Sweatpants
It's tempting to reason that if you wear sweats a lot, it makes sense to splash out on a designer pair (plus, beyond-buzzy label Vetements assures we're about to see a lot more pricey pairs hit the market). Banish the thought though, as there's little difference between a $20 pair and a $200 one since the cut and fabrication will essentially be identical.

6. Totes
When it comes to bags, save up and spend more on a classic shoulder bag, not a roomy tote. This is your workhorse piece, and it'll likely take a beating. Plenty of good, well-made leather versions abound that won't eat into your budget too much, and the minimalistic nature of the style makes it tricky for people to instantly know how much you spent.

7. Trousers
When it comes to your work wardrobe, you'll get more ROI on unique blouses and blazers than your slacks. Saving here is easy, since options for sophisticated, work-ready pants abound at national chains that cater to shoppers needing a professional wardrobe. The monetary benefit is compounded too, since the wallet-friendly pairs aren't as likely to have the dreaded dry-clean only labels, saving you that care cost.

11 Flirty Sundresses You Can Start Wearing Right Now

11 Flirty Sundresses You Can Start Wearing Right Now

Sundresses are one of the easiest-to-wear wardrobe essentials a woman can own. With a flirty floral print and a throw-on-and-go silhouette, it's the stylish piece your warm-weather wardrobe craves. When you're running out the door—whether you're heading to a morning meeting or weekend brunch with friends—a sundress will never disappoint: The one-and-done ease of styling is so simple when you have a printed dress on hand. Just throw on a pair of shoes and you're good to go! Gone are the days of fussing with top and bottom pairings; no worrying if your solid sheath dress is a little too plain.

While mini silhouettes pair perfectly with sandals and sneakers, and may be better left to the weekend, go ahead and style that midi-length sundress with ankle booties or heels for the office. There's a printed sundress for every style; channel Sienna Miller or Kate Bosworth, who tend toward bohemian shapes, or choose more of a ladylike fit-and-flare like Taylor Swift or Reese Witherspoon. The best part? You don't have to wait for summer to dive into this trend. While the weather remains brisk, layer a slim top underneath or throw a leather jacket on top; opt for ankle booties now, and trade them in for open-toe styles as summer arrives.

7 Bomber Jackets We're Lusting After for Spring

Spring jackets are simply the best. They add a little something extra to each and every one of our looks, without the bulk of winter coats. Our favorite styles tend to be toward the more casual: cropped silhouettes that have a slight sporty vibe. Think: Kendall and Gigi twinning in Alpha Industries bombers. Aka, our off-duty spring style inspiration. Leather motos, denim truckers, and twill styles alike, these spring wardrobe essentials quickly become not only our off-duty go-tos, but also effortless date-night dresses and tailored work looks. Infusing your much-needed fashion personality into everything you wear this season is easier than ever.

7 Bomber Jackets We're Lusting After for Spring

The frontrunner this season when it comes to jackets, however, is—without a doubt—the bomber jacket. Seen on the likes of Jenner and Hadid (not to mention Kate Moss, Karlie Kloss, and a multitude of our favorite street style stars!), the bomber is definitely the must-have spring jacket right now. Though you can certainly invest in a designer label or luxe leather style, this trend certainly doesn't have to break the bank.

Spring Work Outfit Inspiration: 7 Ways to Wear a Blazer This Spring

It's official: Spring is here and it's time to start transitioning that wardrobe of yours into the warmer weather season. That is, if you haven't already begun stocking up on those floral dresses, T-shirts, and lighter weight outerwear. One spring outfit staple you should make sure to have in rotation? A blazer. Next to leather jackets, the perfect pair of jeans, and a trench coat (to name a few), blazers are a spring essential that will never go out of style. Not to mention that it's also your work-to-weekend outfit savior when it comes to that extra something that will pull nearly any outfit together and make you look elegantly polished—from suits and skirts at the office to slouchy jeans and printed dresses on the weekends.

While we've already begun dreaming of our off-duty looks (because, who doesn't yearn for the days of sundresses and sandals?), it's our office-appropriate looks that really need a bit of a seasonal facelift. Lucky for us, the street style stars at fashion week have already begun wearing the blazer in ways that make us want to stock up—immediately. And it has to be said that after looking to them for outfit inspiration, we're having a hard time envisioning springtime looks that don't involve the spring wardrobe essential.

With a Leather Skirt

Spring Work Outfit Inspiration: 7 Ways to Wear a Blazer This Spring
Try a leather skirt (of any length!) and a white button-down shirt, belted at the waist, like Blair Eadie. This spring, top the look with a classic navy blazer when headed to work.

Black-on-Black

Matchy-Matchy

Whether you're headed to an office with a more relaxed dress code, or simply want to amp up your weekend wears, look to Vogue UK editor, Sarah Harris, who styles her straight-leg jeans with a white blouse, piped blazer, and flat mules.

Pajama Style

Change up your blazer game this season by dipping your tow into the pajama trend. Opt for a silky waist-tie style, like Zina Charkoplia for the perfect balance between polished and slouchy.

With Tailored Trousers and Brogues

When getting dressed for work this spring, we're drawing inspiration from model, Anja Rubik, who switches up her suiting look by opting for a camel colored blazer with her classic black trousers.

Over a Floral Midi Dress

Whether you're heading to the office or a date night (or maybe both!), look to Andreea Panciuc, who tops her springtime floral midi dress with a tailored black blazer. Layer the look over a bodysuit on colder days, and take the underlayer off as the weather warms.

The Spring Layering Outfit Essential: Perfect Leather Jackets, All Under $300


While the spring season may conjure up images of floral sundresses and sandals, the early-March weather doesn't always cooperate with our fashion dreams. Depending on what climate you happen to live in, the temperature can fluctuate from "Where is my Canada Goose?" to "I really wish I were wearing jean shorts"—all in a single day. As such, when getting dressed during this transitional season, layering is a must. And it's no secret how much we love layering. An opportunity to style multiple pieces we're currently obsessed with, all at the same time? Yes, please. Creating an outfit around our favorite piece of the season in a totally different way for every day of the week? Sign us up. And, as women on the go, we need to roll with the punches when it comes to our wardrobe—taking off and adding layers as necessary—as we run from a day at the office to drinks afterward; morning brunch with friends to a late-night party—without batting an eyelash. One of our favorite spring layers? The leather jacket. Classic as it may be, the style options are endless. Choose an edgy motorcycle shape to pair with a cocktail dress when heading out at night; a clean, colorless style when slipping into that pencil skirt for the office; or more casual cropped bomber when reaching for that perfect spring jacket to go with your slouchy off-duty denim. Lightweight and cropped, but warm enough to keep you toasty warm as the wind begins to whip, you need a leather jacket in your spring wardrobe arsenal if you don't already have one. Real or faux, leather can get expensive, but there are some great options out there that won't break the bank. In all shapes and sizes, this spring wardrobe essential is not only totally easy to style, but it's more affordable than ever.

The Best Colorful Shoes for Spring That Make All of Your Outfits Pop
Sincerely Jules

Accessories are the easiest way to add some personality to your look each season. A fun fringy bag, oversized statement earrings, or a pair of colorful shoes are simple additions to all of your outfits, no matter where you're headed—from the office to a date night and everything in between. They will instantly take it to the next level. As we begin to bask in the glory of warmer weather, it's time to book a pedicure and rock those shoes that may not have been exactly conducive to the snow-and-ice of winter past. While every woman should own a pair of classic black pumps, it's the brighter, head-turning styles that will make you feel springtime ready as soon as you slip your toes into a new pair. There's something about great heels that just make us stand a little taller: True, they literally lend us inches in stature, but they are the perfect feel-good purchase, as well. Especially to ring in spring—we give you full permission to treat yourself as you attempt to exist that long winter hibernation. This season, when you're searching for your next great pair of heels, go for color—whether you're wearing a pair of tailored trousers, shirtdress, or slouchy denim. Eye-catching as this trend may be, you can totally make it work for you, no matter where you're headed. Early office meeting? Opt for a burgundy tone in a classic pump shape. Planning a late night out on the town? Pull out all the stops and choose a statement shoe with a bold pattern and whimsical detail. Want a little extra lift when headed out to weekend brunch? Chunky mid-heel mules are going to quickly become your go-to. As we embark on our spring shopping, there are so many awesome colorful shoes we're coveting. We may just have to buy more than one!

True Story: When Taylor Swift Was Bullied in School, Her Mom Took Her Shopping to Feel Better

Just ask Taylor Swift and her mom, Andrea: Retail therapy is real. The pop star just shared some personal facts with US Weekly, including a story about how she used to handle mean girls.

"When I was bullied in school my mom used to take me to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry," she said, revealing opals are this girl's best friend. "I thought opals were so beautiful, and somehow it made me feel better. We never bought them, just looked." Sweet huh? (And Calvin, remember this for next year's anniversary gift.)

Other fashion facts we learned? Her favorite fall shades to wear are maroon, mustard, dark green, and navy blue, and her polished ladylike style wasn't always her go-to look. "I used to wear a Victoria's Secret Pink hoodie and sweatpants to school on a regular basis," she admitted, making us think about all the stuff we wore in college that we just can't deal with anymore. See? Cinderella shoes aside, Taylor's just a regular girl who loves comfy pants and shopping with her mom.
