Straw basket bags are hotter than ever this summer, but they're not just for the beach. From oversized totes to tiny woven baskets to playful pom-pom clutches, the It accessory is ideal for Sunday brunch with your besties, date night at the movies, or just hitting the city streets. Though the gorgeous straw styles from Cult Gaia and Clare V. may not suit everyone's budget, you can still score the cool-girl cary-all for a steal. Here are 14 under-$50 straw bags we'll be carrying all season.
We're calling it: Lavender is the It color of 2018. Sorry millennial pink, but with pale purple appearances on Spring '18 runways from Tom Ford, Tibi, and Victoria Beckham (to name a few), it's hard to ignore the pastel-adjacent takeover. Lavender even has the Rihanna seal of approval, along with Black Panther lead Lupita Nyong'o and Grown-ish rising star Yara Shahidi rocking lilac gowns on the red carpet in full support of the lilac hue. What's not to love about a universally flattering shade that looks good with just about anything, with your favorite denim or a bold orange lip. If you're not ready to take on loud ultra-violet, then these lavender pieces are your in to one of 2018's top statement trends. Shop our fave lilac finds from athleisure essentials and spring maxi dresses all the way to standout shoes and boxy suit jackets.

It's October so if you aren't feeling fall yet, girl, you'd better start! I've broken down what I think are the top five most gorgeous and wearable makeup trends for fall. I'm also recommending products to make them happen for you. So start experimenting!
Out with the old, and in with the new. But wait—not so fast. We’re giving you clear-eyed, full-hearted permission to abandon some of the year’s more, erm, troubling fashion trends. Specifically, weird headgear, spiked boots, drop-crotch harem pants, and festival chic (AKA “the dirty hippie look”) can peacefully fade into oblivion like so many nameless trends of yesteryear that we no longer devote brainspace to. (A good rule of thumb: Ask yourself “WWMKOD?” or “What would Mary-Kate Olsen do?” If the answer is “Wear it out with her sketchy old-man boyfriend!” then toss it in the trash immediately. There are, however, a few trends that are worth holding onto…in 2013 and beyond.
Hot chocolate just might be the best part of winter. It's decadent and delicious, and it warms you up faster than a Snuggie straight out of the dryer. Who would turn down chocolate, arguably one of the best creations known to man, when it's melted down to a thick, rich liquid? What's more (yes, there's more!), hot chocolate accoutrements hardly end there--think cayenne pepper, pumpkin puree, and even Fluffernutter. If you're craving a steaming cup of cocoa this season, go beyond the usual mix of instant powder. There's a wide world of hot chocolate recipes like these just waiting to be tried, tasted, and treasured.

Whether you're headed to a beach bonfire or a backyard barbecue, having the right bag is essential. After all, nobody wants to be caught poolside with last season's quilted satchel. Here are the six summer handbags to fit every adventure.
A lot of people assume that wearing painful pumps and blister-causing booties just comes with territory when you’re a supermodel. Well, there’s definitely some truth to that! But if there’s one thing attending fashion week after fashion week taught me, it’s that there are also several things you can do to make all that hot footwear a little more wearable. So since we’re right at the start of boot season (and since comfort is even more important to Mama Molly than it was to Model Molly) I thought I’d share four of my tricks for breaking in new boots.
Jeans of some kind are always in style, but our denim preferences change all the time, and what was in last season may be passé this one. The good news is, this season's hot denim styles will fit any body type and can be styled to work for nearly any occasion. Check out the must-have jeans that should be filling your drawers this spring.
