Steal Her Style: Lauren Conrad’s Oversized Pocket Tee


Amazingly chic and unique style; it’s what you get when you update your boyfriend’s oversized pocket tee with a sheer, draped cotton, and add in the pinnacle of girliness: a fitted satin skirt with ruffles. What’s so snazzy about this so-called “oversized pocket tee,” you ask? It’s the perfect balance every outfit aspires to: an ultra chic and put-together appearance, with a super easy to wear and comfortable feel. This blissful combo is accomplished with an oversized fit in sheer cotton that drapes the body, giving the illusion and weightless feel of chiffon, in a casual and updated cotton. Wear it with boots for a sassy daytime kit, or nude heels for a chic and trend-setting night out.

Top Trend: Threads That Rock


Yet another testament to plaid’s seasonal supremacy: the heavy rock ‘n roll influence on this season’s styles. Starting with the rock-your-socks-off-factor that plaids bring to the table, rock styles are speeding up the tempo with stud-crusted spotlight pieces, exposed zippers, destroyed denim, and of course, the classic rock tee. It’s a hostile take-over of black and metal. Are you ready to rock?

Style Inspiration: Amelia Earhart


A pioneer of in aviation and avant-garde, Amelia Earhart’s style defined the beginning of the radical trend towards menswear cuts, fabrics and silhouettes. In celebration of her uniquely free style, and of the release of the Hollywood film Amelia (played by Hillary Swank), we’ve decided to highlight some of her essential pieces that are reemerging this season: leather jackets, bombers, tailored pants, leather riding boots and aviators…topped with a signature feminine scarf for the full effect. For a look that’ll fly today? Give her menswear-heavy style a modern twist by swapping tailored pants for a feminine skinny pant tucked into leather boots and trade the silk neckerchief for an updated cotton scarf. Dive-bomb into these fundamental pieces for a truly unique look that pays homage to Amelia’s progressive persona.
