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.
Spring weather is a hot mess, but that doesn't mean your feet should be! Transition out of winter and conquer mother nature with these fabulous ankle boots that will keep you covered and become a statement piece to any outfit. From jeans to dresses, your feet will look chic.

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.
From mandalas to cross-stitch, check out some of the most beautiful tattoo trends to emerge this year. There's something here for everyone!

Sun protection can sometimes seem like a hassle. First there’s like three types of sunscreen (face, lips, body) and then you have to reapply what seems like every five minutes. But sun protection that justifies a new accessory purchase and looks totally chic? That’s one we can get on board with. So we found 12 cute hats—from floppy hats to fedoras to baseball caps—that will not only protect your pretty face, they’ll make your outfit as well!
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.
Take your style to the next level with high-low hemlines. The meet-up between a maxi and a mini has created a new look that shows your stems but keeps you covered. The high-low hemline adds length to your body and shows off curves. For a more subtle high-low look, choose pieces that are slightly askew rather than extremely cut. Three versions of the high-low trend—a high-low blouse, dress, and skirt—are essential pieces to get you started. We'll show you how to wear them!
Tweed is no longer just for college professors with elbow patches or stuffy old ladies who lunch. These days tweed has been reclaimed for edgy jackets, flirty dresses, and curve-hugging shorts.

Leather has always been—and probably always will be—a key component of any winter wardrobe. But this season, it seems we’re getting an even heavier dose of Rock ‘n’ Roll. From revised motorcycle jackets and leather-trimmed tees to all manners of perforated and paneled, there’s something for everyone this fall.
