The Shoes You Need to Stop Wearing Right Now

With a brand new season peaking, it totally makes sense that you want to add a few new pairs of shoes to the rotation. And because we fully support that venture, let's clear up some space for those new guys, 'k? Whether it's a trend from years ago you're emotionally attached to or gorgeous heels that give you the ouches, hear us now: Stop wearing them. That last point is the biggest one, since it's way too common to meet a woman who's harboring a shoe that she adores, but hardly ever wears. Whether you made a misstep when purchasing or your foot's changed slightly, it's not doing any good sitting in the dark closet (and please don't suffer through a wearing only to find yourself hobbled by blisters the next day). Donate or sell them—don't forget that what hurts your foot might feel like Cinderella's slipper to someone else.

The Shoes You Need to Stop Wearing Right Now

We love your shoes, but if they're hurting you, ban them from your closet!

Likewise, if you persist in wearing stilettos that are so sky-high they hinder your gait, ditch them. "Shoes that women can't walk in need to stop. No matter how beautiful they are, it loses something when it's impossible to move in," shoe designer Sarah Flint told us.

The list of no-gos from Shopbop included a few looks that shouldn't be banned right out, but retired for just a bit. "Wedged sneakers have come and gone. This year, we think our girl will love a platform sneaker instead," the brand's footwear buyer Gabriela Barreto told us, also suggesting we take a collective break from the chunky sandals of last year. "Comfort is still key, but it's time to shift away from the clunky, orthopedic sandals. We're seeing a ton of slides that are equal parts feminine and easy instead," added Kate Johanson, Shopbop's market editor. Both women also piped up to agree with Michael Kors' statement that rubber flip flops are not meant to be everyday shoes. Unless you're at the beach, stop wearing them, ok?

An unofficial survey of the Glamour offices turned up pleas to ditch square heels and nude patent leather pumps (the leg-lengthening shoe is always a do, but modernize it by trying a warm leather or suede pair instead). Another good relic to take out of the rotation? Logo'ed flats. Keep the skimmer look, but do it in an understated ballet flat with a round or pointed toe.

This year, the color of spring is pink. But not just any pink. This perfect pastel lies somewhere between saturated dusty rose and classically neutral light cream and is—you guessed it—the easiest color to style with anything you own, no matter where you're headed.

Don’t Let The Weather Get You Down: This Is How To Dress For Work When It’s Raining

April showers are coming (and in some parts of the country, they're most definitely already here!), so it's time to start figuring out what that means for your wardrobe. It can be tricky enough getting dressed for the office every morning: finding something pretty, yet conservative; dressed-up, yet comfortable. But when you wake up to a torrential downpour outside your window? All bets are off. Those cute outfits you planned out before bed (or in your head as you fell asleep) are just not going to cut it anymore—at least not without a little bit of help.

While rainy weather may allow for a little leeway in the office dress code, sweatpants are still off limits—and you don't necessarily want to show up in your favorite linen suit, only to be soaked to the core once you reach your cubicle, either. From fashionable and waterproof outerwear to shoes that are a bit more rain-friendly, these are the tips, tricks, and outfit ideas you need to get through the rainy season in style.


The Trench:
Don't Let The Weather Get You Down: This Is How To Dress For Work When It's Raining
No matter what you're wearing underneath, make sure you're covered up with a rainproof coat. While trenches are the most classic option, and will take you from the office to drinks to a weekend stroll, there are also plenty of coated and water-resistant options in all of your favorite spring jacket silhouettes.


Rubber Boots:
Don't Let The Weather Get You Down: This Is How To Dress For Work When It's Raining
A great pair of rubber boots will have you wading through those puddles without a second thought. While the most effective pair are flat and knee-high, they require a quick change once you arrive at your destination. If you don't want to carry the extra bulk, try a pair of rubber ankle booties this spring—your coworkers may not even realize they're wellies!


Cropped Pants:
Don't Let The Weather Get You Down: This Is How To Dress For Work When It's Raining
Keep your trousers on the short end on rainy days. They won't drag on the wet ground and require little thought when you're jumping over puddles on your way to the office. Bonus? Whether they're slim pixie pants or wide-leg culottes, ankle cropped trousers are among the most flattering trends out there.


Dressed-up Denim:
Don't Let The Weather Get You Down: This Is How To Dress For Work When It's Raining
For the more casual office, today is the day to slip into a pair of jeans. They're no fuss and easy to style, especially when you know you're going to be hit with the elements once you walk out your front door. Just make sure to keep it professional with a blouse, blazer, and classic pair of shoes.


Classic Sneakers:
Don't Let The Weather Get You Down: This Is How To Dress For Work When It's Raining
For mild rain days, sneakers are a go-to. Though not fit for every office, the classic, white, lowtop is a huge trend for spring and there has never been a better time to break it out. Casual as these tennies may be, they bring a youthful flair to more conservative midi skirts and modern suiting.


A Statement Coat:
Don't Let The Weather Get You Down: This Is How To Dress For Work When It's Raining
A bright printed style is great for a rainy day—as long as it's not going to ruin the coat in question. It will not only take the focus off of whatever you're wearing underneath, but it will also be less likely to reveal small wet patches or rain droplet spots than a solid, neutral option.

8 Pairs of Leggings that Look Like Actual Pants—Not the Stuff You Work Out In
Jules Sariñana of Sincerely Jules looking chic in her "going-out leggings".

There are two distinct categories of leggings: There are the ones you reserve solely for the gym or for lounging at home, and there are those you wear out on the weekends, dates, or maybe even to work on a casual Friday. We all love a stretch pant now and again, but it's important that you do not overlap these categories. Not only will it lead to wardrobe confusion (what drawer would they even go in?), but wearing your gym pants out for a night on the town just isn't chic at all.

How to make the distinction? Gym-ready leggings can have neon, mesh or other sport details and they can be cropped or mid-calf length. "Going-out" leggings that look more like actual pants have finer details, such as topstitching, leather or suede insets, and they're most definitely ankle length or a tad longer and thicker than lightweight performance styles. The latter trouser can be worn with longer tunics and sweaters, or even a crop crop and robe coat, à la Kendall Jenner. You can also up the luxe factor by investing in a pair in suede or leather. Check out our favorite new pairs (all in easy-to-wear black) here:

The color black: We know it well and we love it with all our heart. While dressing in head-to-toe color is certainly not for the faint of heart, black will always work and always make you feel as though you're channeling your inner chic French girl. Not to mention that, as the Queen Bee of neutrals, there's little thought or stress required when getting dressed in the deep hue. That said, take advantage of its reliability and try something different this spring when you reach for that leather jacket or LBD. Mix it up with a print here and there, or try a trend you may be wary of. 'Tis the season to break out of your winter rut with the help of the most fashionable color out there.


Mix in some prints:
9 Fresh Ways to Wear Black This Spring
Keep your look fairly monochromatic, but add a bit of extra dimension by styling your solid black pieces with a black and white print, be it ditsy florals or bolder color blocking.

Add a statement jacket:
9 Fresh Ways to Wear Black This Spring
An all-black look is like a chic blank canvas, so don't be shy when it comes to adding a piece that's a little more bold, like a statement coat or jacket.

Go sheer:
9 Fresh Ways to Wear Black This Spring
If you've ever had an inkling to choose a top that's a little more sheer than most when headed out at night, try one in black to retain the feeling of elegance and sophistication. Pair it with black styling pieces to keep your look understated.

Try the trends:
9 Fresh Ways to Wear Black This Spring
An understated, chic, and universally flattering color, use deep black hues to try those trends that you may have otherwise been wary of, whether it's a bold cold shoulder or simply a sporty bomber jacket.

Opt for ladylike silhouettes:
9 Fresh Ways to Wear Black This Spring
Balance the edgy nature of the dark color with midi hemlines, silhouettes that nip in at the waist, and feminine heels that pop.

Add flair with accessories:
9 Fresh Ways to Wear Black This Spring
A single all-black look has a thousand varieties when you begin to mix in accessories. The possibilities are endless, so—go ahead—reach for that printed scarf and throw that fringe bag over your shoulder!

Choose interesting shapes:
9 Fresh Ways to Wear Black This Spring
Statement details or silhouettes can be daunting, so test drive one in a neutral, like black. Who knows—you may love it so much, your next step is to try the style in red.

Mix up materials:
9 Fresh Ways to Wear Black This Spring
Varying fabrics boast slightly differing shades of black, so styling leather and denim with cotton and silk gives an extra dimension to your dark, monochromatic outfit.

Experiement with lace:

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.

The Spring 2016 Trends You're About to See Everyone Wearing, According to Pinterest

When you check out that pic of Australian style star Nicole Warne in her off-the-shoulder look, does some version of, "I need to get me some of that!" come to mind immediately? If it does, you're right on trend. The folks at Pinterest basically know us better than we do ourselves, with insight into exactly what we're searching for and pinning (a sure indication of what's bubbling up in real time). Even though the vernal equinox just passed, early birds have been planning their spring style for awhile, and the season's biggest trends are now very apparent.

"We saw spring fashion popping up in January, and it really picked up steam in February," Larkin Brown, researcher and in-house stylist at Pinterest, shared with us. Specifically, exposed shoulders have had a strong presence, making it a sure thing that once the sun comes out, you'll be seeing dresses and tops like Miss Warne's everywhere. "The off-the-shoulder trend has firmly taken hold on Pinterest. Shoulder-baring looks have doubled since the beginning of January."

The other trends that Pinterest knows will be exploding on streets near you soon?

Bold earrings.
Statement necklaces and arm party situations have given way to pay-attention earrings. "Instead of the minimalist studs that previously dominated Pinterest, drop earrings and chandeliers are gaining ground," Larkin said.

High-neck bikinis.
"We're already at the peak of swimsuit pinning as people plan ahead for spring break and summer vacation. This year's trend are high-necked halter bikinis, from sporty styles to boho crochet."

Boho festival fashion.
No matter what the Coachella calendar might tell you, festival fashion extends way beyond two weeks in the California desert. "Our data shows that pinners have been planing their concert-going looks for month," Larkin explained. "Festival style pinning began as early as January and will probably peak in May."

Lace-up sandals.
Sexy, strappy sandals are a trend that's still building. "As temperatures rise, these are moving up, with pinning up 172% year-over-year," she said, noting that the team sees popular images of pairs styled with swimwear, casual looks, and date-night dresses.

As die-hard fashion lovers, we're all about investing in pieces that will be a part of our wardrobes for a long time, but there are some things that every stylish girl buys on the cheap. From a perfect white tee, to the hoodie that every street-style star is rocking, these are the five fashion essentials to add to your shopping cart asap—and yep, they're all from Target. (You can say Targét if you want to be fancy. We don't judge.)


A Boxy-yet-Fitted White T-Shirt:
5 Wallet-Friendly Essentials Every Fashion Girl Buys at Target
Boys' Hanes 5-pack crew T-shirt, $9, target.com

Fashion girls take their T-shirts very seriously. It's all about having a slim fit at the shoulders and some give at the torso. These boys Hanes T-shirt fit the bill better than any pricey tee we've tried. For sizing, if you're a women's small to medium, choose boys size medium; if you're a women's size large, you might want to try either the boys large or extra large depending on how busty you are.

The Little Black Swimsuit
5 Wallet-Friendly Essentials Every Fashion Girl Buys at Target
Xhilaration triangle bikini top, $15, target.com and bottom, $15, target.com

You've got your go-everywhere LBD, now it's time for the LBS—little black swimsuit. Stylish women always have a chic black bikini or one-piece at the ready (you never know when the next serendipitous trip to the beach or pool will be).


A '90s-Style Hoodie:
5 Wallet-Friendly Essentials Every Fashion Girl Buys at Target
Hanes Premium hooded sweatshirt, $13, target.com

Hoodies are one of the biggest trends for fall, but no need to get fancy with yours. Kick it old school with a high school-era hoodie.


Retro White Sneakers:
5 Wallet-Friendly Essentials Every Fashion Girl Buys at Target
Mossimo Supply Co. Lark sneakers, $20, target.com

This French-girl style favorite looks best when they're bright white and super clean, so they're definitely not something you want to invest in—and at $20, you can replace these cute ones every year or two if you need to.

Gym-to-Brunch Leggings:
5 Wallet-Friendly Essentials Every Fashion Girl Buys at Target
Mossimo Supply Co. long leggings, $10, target.com

We're totally obsessed with these leggings because they're opaque enough to bend and squat without revealing what's underneath, but if you don't look that closely, you can kind of get away with wearing them as pants (but before you do, know the rules).

Floral, Stripes, Leopard: What Your Favorite Spring Print Says About Your Personality

Quick: Why did you pick whatever you're wearing right now? While there's practicality behind our clothing choices (like weather and the day's agenda), we're also motivated subconsciously by our personalities. It's a fascinating way to look at your style selections and can even help inform your shopping decisions. Just in time for spring, psychologist Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner partnered with T.J. Maxx and Marshalls to focus in on the season's classic prints, revealing what a fondness for, say, leopard print has to say about the woman wearing the piece.

If you like florals:
If come spring you're all about blooms and buds, you're likely someone who routinely embraces her femininity. You rock jeans and tees with the best of them, but there's a good chance you're a girl who appreciates her high heels and a slash of bright lipstick too.

Floral, Stripes, Leopard: What Your Favorite Spring Print Says About Your Personality

If you like plaid:
"You may be a true traditionalist at heart," the doc wrote, reminding us that plaid was used primarily for domestic textiles before it became popular for clothing. Those that reach for plaid tend to place a high value on stability, endurance, and loyalty.

Floral, Stripes, Leopard: What Your Favorite Spring Print Says About Your Personality

If you like stripes:
The classic spring favorite appeals to practical types who enjoy knowing something will never go out of style (and can be worn with practically everything in your closet). You're "confident by nature," and strong stripes show that you're ready to buckle down and take care of business.

Floral, Stripes, Leopard: What Your Favorite Spring Print Says About Your Personality

If you like tie-dye:
"You're someone who tends to break boundaries and are keen on charting your own course," she explained, pointing to the unique nature of the print as being one that's close to your heart. You're not likely to do something just because, and instead prefer to march to the beat of your own drum.

Floral, Stripes, Leopard: What Your Favorite Spring Print Says About Your Personality

If you like paisley:
The whimsy of paisley attracts daydreamers who'd be most happy stamping their passports at exotic ports all around the globe. "Paisley asserts a feeling of movement, helping to unleash your inner passion for journey and discovering the wonders of life," Dr. Baumgartner explained. That love of the unknown means you also like a good dose of mystery woven into things.

Floral, Stripes, Leopard: What Your Favorite Spring Print Says About Your Personality

If you like animal prints:
Closets with a fair amount of leopard and snakeskin typically belong to ambitious women who are after success in all aspects of life. "You exude sheer strength and are an unstoppable force no matter what life throws at you."

Floral, Stripes, Leopard: What Your Favorite Spring Print Says About Your Personality

If you like geometric prints:
Dr. Baumgartner says these sorts have "an eye on the future." The sharp lines and intersections of geometric prints appeal to your love of balance and order.

The Kendall Jenner Guide to Wearing Your Denim Miniskirt From College

With all kinds of spring style right around the corner, now's the time to start thinking about the outfits you'll be living in and what you might want to pull out of the far reaches of your closet. You're sure to be digging for the usual (bikinis, cutoffs, and breezy sundresses included), but Kendall Jenner would like you to reconsider something else this year. The model ended last summer in something we thought we might never see again—a cutoff denim miniskirt—and we're fully expecting her to bring it out again because, against all odds, the piece somehow looked covetable on her. Amazed, we studied her looks to figure out what specific elements make it work.

The Kendall Jenner Guide to Wearing Your Denim Miniskirt From College

Kendall's tricks for keeping it 2016, not 2006, is all about a basic top and shoes that offer more polish than the flip flops you were probably wearing 10 years ago. Consider the piece a skinny jean alternative and try on with a favorite tee or sleek tank à la Kendall. Most importantly, rethink whatever shoes you were wearing with the skirt back in the day. Where the Hollister and Abercrombie ads from the last decade would've shown the staple surf'ed out with rubber sandals, the denim mini of today needs to be worn with cool-girl ankle boots.

Got it? Should you have already tossed your "vintage" piece in an epic bout of closet cleaning, get one like Kendall's. Hers is from Aussie brand One Teaspoon.

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
Spring Work Outfit Inspiration: 7 Ways to Wear a Blazer This Spring
For a great work-to-drinks look, style slim black pants with a double-breasted tuxedo blazer and heeled ankle booties.

Matchy-Matchy

Caroline Issa makes the office-appropriate suit modern by layering like a pro underneath her tan double-breasted blazer and finishing off the look with a pair of flats.

With Jeans and Mules

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

Malia and Sasha Obama Just Wore Perfect Spring Outfits in Cuba

Since we're talking spring fashion, it's only fitting that the Obamas arrived to rain in Cuba yesterday. It's a frustration that characterizes dressing for the finnicky season—how do you find something that's on-trend, easy to wear, and appropriate should the weather turn steamy, chilly, or, ugh, wet? Malia and Sasha Obama both got it just right in short dresses they paired with sneakers, the classic shoe of choice for long days of playing tourist that also happens to be having a major style moment. Plus, they're a wise pick for inclement weather since cleaning them is easy, and you're less likely to slip and slide on rainy surfaces (versus slick leather sandals or heels).

Younger sis Sasha picked a black Shoshanna dress with contrasting white details at the neck and running vertically down the front (shop it here for $385). Along with the skater shoes, the accent keeps the look young and breezy, and it confirms something we're noticing about her style: She likes tactile embellishments. Mom Michelle is wearing a spring-friendly Carolina Herrera dress.

Malia's print-block dress pairs a dark ditsy floral on the bottom with a lighter version up top. While blooms are a springtime fashion classic, the tinier style speaks to this season's obsession with the '70s. Her bright-white kicks are a comfy way to finish off the look, though we just spotted a clue that this is a major shoe girl. Peek at the above snap of the fam stepping off the plane, would you? Malia's in something different, wearing of-the-moment lace-up flats! We love both styles equally, but we're impressed with the fashion foresight. When it comes to iffy early spring days, keeping a second pair of shoes handy is genius. Switch them out as needed because, honestly, who'd want to ruin cute leather skimmers in the rain?

One of the major reasons we've fallen so in love with both girls' style? The way they constantly inject personality into their picks, reminding the world that not only do they like to play with fashion, but, hey, they're still just your average American teens at heart. In this snap you can see Sasha's skinny black choker, a favorite accessory of hers that was undoubtedly inspired by today's Insta-models. Malia's pretty trumpet sleeves, flaring out right at her elbow, are also on full display in this side shot. Nice little bursts of personality, huh?

The girls are traveling with their parents as their spring break trip, and it's already been a big year for both. Earlier this month they attended their first formal White House dinner and looked so grown-up!

Lauren Conrad Shows You 3 Ways to Wear Metallics This Spring

That nice-girl energy Lauren Conrad radiates is real and extends straight into the fashion space. The reality star turned style mogul was kind enough to share her 2016 trend picks with us and just went one better, diving into a how-to tutorial on one of her favorites. "I love wearing metallics in any way, shape, or form," she said. "When I saw that mixed metallics are in this year, I started pulling all of my shiny, shimmery pieces out of my closet to prepare." Prep she did, with specific advice on how to style the look three different ways.

Option 1: Wear with denim.

If you're just starting to experiment with high-shine or feel nervous, consider this your 101 course. Denim is universally regarded as a good base for whatever you want to add on and lets the metallic piece be the only statement item. "A classic pair of jeans will act as a neutral canvas for whatever else you choose to pair with them," Lauren advised.

Option 2: Wear with a different texture.

Beyond being flashy, metallics often involve a tactile experiment too (think lamé, sequins, or thick, rich brocade). When you're mixing in a second piece that's also touchable, don't make it compete color-wise. Whether it's a cozy sweatshirt, a slick leather jacket, or a super fuzzy sweater, shop for one in a neutral hue like gray, white, or black.

Option 3: Wear it all the way.

If you want to go all-in, take Lauren's advice: Don't mix and match random items, but go with a one-piece (like a dress or jumpsuit) or pull on a matched set. It allows for "an outfit that looks cohesive instead of mismatched and too all-over shimmery," she explained.

So, which of the three was LC's favorite? The third. "I could see myself wearing it from day—at a fun girl's luncheon or daytime event—to night for a celebratory soiree. It's the perfect party girl ensemble."
