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.
Welcome to the jungle... of the 1980s. Colorful animal print was stalking the runways at New York Fashion Week, so it's only a matter of time before the throwback style makes its way to your closet. Adam Selman, R13, Rag & Bone, and especially Tom Ford all played with bright and bold animal print booties, dresses, hoisery, and more. Think: Lisa Frank… but fashion. Are you bold enough to walk on the technicolor wild side? Check out these nine items and find out.

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.
Unicorn hot chocolate is the majestic and magical drink that will cure your winter blues.
Packing for the holidays always seems easy - until you're staring at your empty suitcase and wondering what prompted you to go anywhere in the first place. You know what's nice around the holidays? Your apartment. But it's too late now. So you need warm layers, something cute for the holiday party where your ex-boyfriend may be lurking behind the punch bowl, and plenty of room for presents. Once you’ve laid everything out, ditch half of it. Now, look at what’s left. Ditch half of that too. There. You’re now in the zip code of What You Might Actually Wear. Because you never need as much as you think you do. A few beloved basics plus fresh socks and underwear for each day you’re gone and you’re set. For Hannukah, Christmas, for that winter solstice sage-waving ritual your sister keeps threatening.
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.
