Get The Look: Phase Eight Cross Front Dress ($131), Anne Klein Houndstooth Dress ($99)

timelessdresses-halter

Halter Dress

This back-baring frock gained popularity in the ‘40s and ‘50s and underwent a disco-drenched revival in the early ‘70s thanks to style icons like Jerry Hall and Bianca Jagger. If you’ve got a glam, floor-length halter dress, keep it!

The Top Pre-Fall Collections

The pre-fall collections may not hit stores until July, but that’s no reason not to ponder what we’ll be wanting to wear. These collections are usually the most wearable, but that never stops designers from getting creative. From Thom Browne’s edgy androgynous prep, to Louis Vuitton’s fantasy ski chalet, here are the pre-fall collections that are pretty amazing.

prefall-michael-kors

Michael Kors

For pre-fall, Kors has upped the luxe factor, introducing metallic brocades. Kors also stays true to his Americana roots with a dose of tailored sportswear. It’s impeccably styled: brooches and sneakers? Who knew?

prefall-lv

Louis Vuitton

The new direction of the Vuitton brand is promising. The pre-fall collection truly goes from day to night, featuring an array of looks for everything from après skiing to evening. Also, hello, Vuitton denim!

prefall-valentino

Valentino

Valentino debuted their pre-fall collection with a nod to the owl. Their fine-feathered friends are introduced amongst a moody, earthy palette. The collection also includes its fair share of over the top furs and beautiful nudes.

prefall-t-by-alexander-wang

T by Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang’s diffusion line comes into its own with the pre-fall collection. A very neutral palette with deconstructed details is the stuff of my dreams. This collection is elevated while still staying true to its athletic roots.

prefall-erdem

Erdem

This pre-fall collection was a stunning progression for the designer. Colorful lace, which is a signature, takes center stage amongst elegant dresses that are destined to go from the runway to the red carpet.

prefall-cushnie-et-ochs

Cushnie et Ochs

The Cushnie et Ochs design duo is pretty famous for perfecting the sexy dress. This season, they introduce a new element: pearls. The fresh embellishments paired with their signature silhouettes prove to be a winning combination.

prefall-thom-browne

Thom Browne

Thom Browne’s collection is an adaptation of his classic preppy staples. Suiting, and a very patriotic color palette characterize this pre-fall collection. If you can’t make it through next fall without Thom Browne, you’re in luck. The collection is available for pre-order on Moda Operandi.

prefall-jenni-kayne

Jenni Kayne

Kayne puts a playful spin on pre-fall. The designer introduces a punchy floral print and keeps things nice and light, but contrasts the sweetness by mixing it with fur stoles. Have you noticed a pattern here? Get a fur scarf this season! Seriously.

Stay Stylish!

XOXO

Roundup: Best Trends of 2013

Another year is over, but great fashion is never forgotten. These fashion trends made 2013 very stylish. Here are the best trends of the year and possibly this one too!

besttrends-sexy-sheer-panels-trend

Sexy, Sheer Panels

Celebrities enthusiastically embraced—and pushed the limits of—the sheer-panel trend on the red carpet and it has quickly become an A-list  favorite.

Diane Kruger in Thakoon, Rose Byrne in Pucci, Michelle Dockery in Chado Ralph Rucci

besttrends-borrowedfromtheboys-trend-w724

Borrowed From the Boys

The 2013 menswear-inspired craze welcomed feminine interpretations of classic suiting textures and styles, tough but flirty brogues, and the comfy-cozy boyfriend sweater.

besttrends-ringparty-trend

Ring Party!

As a follow-up to the Arm Party, the Ring Party made its mark in 2013. From stacks of mixed metals to statement bands to the boho-cool midi ring—there were so many pieces to either wear alone or pile on.

A shot from Glamour’s behind-the-scenes visit to cult-favorite Brooklyn-based boutiqueCatbird.

BestTrends-all-white-trend

All White, Even After Labor Day

From summery dresses to post-Labor Day monochrome suits to red-carpet-ready gowns, head-to-toe white remained the trend of choice for all seasons this year. And, yes, all white is totally trendy this year also.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Dior, Zoe Saldana in Elie Saab, Charlize Theron in Dior

besttrends-dressed-up-sweatshirt-trend

The Dressed-Up Sweatshirt

A product of the athletic-inspired trend, the dressed-up sweatshirt was immediately embraced by the fun- and comfort-loving fashion set. The piece looks just as cute with skinny jeans as it does with a printed skirt,or…. no pants at all.

Cara Delevingne, Lily Collins, Miroslava Duma

besttrends-heavy-metal-trend

Heavy Metal Hardware

Designers embraced the reinvention of rock style with metal-adorned shoes, boots, and sandals. There’s nothing like chains, grommets, and studs of all shapes and sizes to add tough-girl swagger to any outfit.

Saint Laurent fall 2013, Chanel fall 2013, Isabel Marant spring 2013

besttrends-black-and-white-trend

Black and White

With the return of ’90s minimalism, designers sent a slew of black-and-white contrasting dresses, suits, coats, and leather everything down the spring and fall runways. The trend eventually made its way onto many celebrities—and into our closets.

Chanel fall 2013, Michael Kors spring 2013, Proenza Schouler spring 2013

besttrends-dressy-shorts-trend

Dressy Shorts

Shorts became the new dress, skirt, and even suit piece this year. For the most versatility, designers reinterpreted shorts at varying lengths and in bold colors, prints, and textures.  Good News: dressy shorts are also on 2014 runways and this trend is sticking around.

Theyskens’ Theory fall 2013, Tommy Hilfiger spring 2013, Clover Canyon spring 2013

Which of these Trends will you be Wearing this Year?
