Whether you're ready to dive in head first, or want to dip your toes into this luxurious trend, we've scoured the web to bring you the velvet swimsuits at every price point.

Fall 2014 is shaping up to be all about the outerwear. Get ready to glam up in fancy furs, colorful capes, and embellished wool coats. As the Fall/Winter 2014 shows go on, the designs just keep getting better and better. Here are our favorites from day five of New York Fashion Week.
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.
New York Fashion Week gives us our first peek at what we'll be wearing for fall 2014. Check out some of the makeup looks that caught our eye.
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.
When it comes to makeup trends for lips this fall, they're taking a trip to the deep end! We're talking yummy plummy shades, ultra-deep wines, dramatic burgundies, and oxblood reds. I encourage you to find a little vamp in yourself and try this dark plum lipstick look. I promise, you won't look like you shop at Hot Topic or bite bat heads off because you'll be right on trend!
