It’s always exciting to see a girl who can work an outfit that’s bursting with color, and we figure the easiest way to achieve the look is by following the rules of color blocking. Although it seems intimidating to swap out mundane shades such as grays and blues for reds and violets, it’s super easy to pull off.

You can either wear one color throughout your outfit in several different shades or combine garments of complementary colors together.  Hint: use a color wheel to get the perfect blend of tones.

Get started on your bold ensemble with a few pieces that seem to be made for color blocking like the Kiara and Diane.

Although it was originally intended as a method of disguise, the camouflage trend has stood out in the fashion scene throughout the years and continues to do so. This favored print takes no prisoners as it appears heavily in resort collections for Marc by Marc Jacobs and Kelly Wearstler. While, it is available in an endless assortment of garments; a battle will arise if you are unsure of how to wear the pattern without appearing too harsh. Luckily, wearers of the camo trend have balanced out masculine and feminine by giving it a soft makeover. Like our muses above, you can redefine the style by pairing a statement camouflage piece with blush and neutral tones in a blazer, skirt, or dress and finish with an edgy pump like the Carine or lace-up bootie such as the Clever.

Sound off in the comments below. How will you wear your camo?

We commend women who can rock open-toe heels amidst the winter wind, but as the degrees continue to drop we’ve realized we need a warm and chic option to bear the weather. J. Mendel, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Vera Wang provide just that in their Pre-Fall 2013 collections. By styling calf high sheer stockings with open and closed-toe heels they offer a sleek and polished look. Channel this style by pairing stockings with the Reina or Marisca!

Red carpets in 2012 were a battleground for the fashionable. Established style icons pushed envelopes while newcomers made a name for themselves. Although there were many looks that left us gawking, these three ladies made an indelible impression; Carey Mulligan in Prada, Diane Kruger in Cushnie et Ochs, and Freida Pinto in Atelier Versace. If you’re coveting their style as much as we are; shop the Aliah, Romantic, and Rina to get a similar look.

Leather is a constant friend to the style privy. The sought after staple has made its rounds on the red carpet throughout the years and will suit a gal who’s looking to incorporate a little bit of edge into her everyday wardrobe.

Start with a classic leather jacket which can be worn with any frock or a pair of shorts for a toned down look. For those that already own a leather jacket, try swapping out basic black for a daring red one like Julia Sarr-Jamois.

On the days that you want to show off your gams snag a pleated or formfitting leather skirt and pair it with a vintage graphic tee.

Supercharge the leather trend by wearing a peplum top. Gwen Stefani gets it right by wearing hers with black denim and a red lip.

Slip into ShoeDazzle’s Zalika bootie or Amy pump to complete the look.

We’re taking cues from Mother Nature’s elements and adding precious metals to our makeup bags and shoe closets. From gleaming gold and rose gold to sparkling silvers and every metallic in between, these shades are perfect for holiday preening. Here are our favorite earthly inspired picks.

Y’all better gather your girls for the harem revolution.  Sorry I said, “Y’all.”—I must be watching too much Honey Boo Boo.

Seriously though; if skinny jeans aren’t your thing, stores like Zara are offering a roomy AND flattering alternative, harem pants.  The draped crotch and high waist provide both coverage and comfort, while the cropped and tapered legs keep you sleek—and showcase your ShoeDazzle shoes.  In keeping with the playful proportions vibe, our stylists suggest you try a bulky wedge like Sabella or a stiletto bootie like Elisabeth. Go big or go home (alone).

You can even get your guy in on the game. Levi’s 520’s quasi-harem cut will help him with the transition. I got these in Rio.

Richy T – Quite crotchety

We will never tire of good, old-fashioned cleavage, but we do adore a new way to show some skin. That’s why when the world took notice of Angelina’s leg at the Oscar’s we were devising a plan to work the high slitted skirt into our sexy repertoire and get a leg-up on the competition, so to speak. Unexpected and very risque, this look has that hard-to-find combo of being both subtle and totally in your face. We love, love, love it, but how to pull it off without looking over the top?

The thigh-high slit comes in varied forms. Traditionally, or maybe, not-so-traditonally, it comes to a screeching halt below your hip bone on one side. Easier-to-wear styles have slits that reach just above the knee, and these are equally enticing, though subtler. There are lots of maxi skirts on the market with slits on both sides, making for lots of legs and also big trouble when the wind blows. Tight or flowing, skirts or dresses, tone down the legginess of the look with wedges for daytime or casual wear and then go all the way in stilettos for night or when you want to make a statement. But as always, when you’re showing off one asset, be sure to keep everything else in check, that means boobs, ladies, because this look really demands all eyes on leg. Plus we’d really hate to literally stop traffic and cause a car wreck. Be safe.
