J. Crew Off-the-Shoulder Striped Sweater, Tie Back Denim Skirt and J. Crew for the Wildlife Conservation Society Whale Bandana (worn as hair tie)
If you want a print that is a classic, do not be afraid of stripes. And J. Crew spotlights the motif with a new trend guide called ‘Stripes, 2 Ways’. Model Cameron Russell rocks the style with five pieces worn ten different ways. From an off-the-shoulder sweater to a maxi dress and ruffled top, these outfits really shine. Each ensemble gets finished with flats, sunglasses and scarves.

Topshop is the go-to name for British fashion. It's (mostly) affordable but yet manages to always be ahead of the trends.
Launched in 2001, Topshop's in-house high-end collection, Topshop Unique, carries more runway-ready pieces, as compared to everyday essentials.
The Topshop Unique Autumn/Winter 2016 collection is perfect for fall, with winter staples like stylish coats, velvet and New Years Eve-ready party dresses. It's almost September, so I'm starting to really get into Fall mode. I'm sad to say goodbye to Summer, but also super excited for Autumn (and Christmas!!).
Although you can actually purchase Topshop Unique items, they tend to be pretty pricey. So, here's how to get the look for less! (Because although gold pointed boots may be on trend just now, you probably won't be able to justify spending almost $400 on them.)
1. Not So Pretty in Pink
Mixing tough and girly is something Topshop Unique does very well. Pairing a pink lace dress with a gothic-esque choker and black midi boots gives this look an edge, and some delicate earrings balance out the outfit.
2. Leather Moto Jacket

Moto jackets are among my wardrobe essentials and I especially love the soft grey color of this one. Paired with a cute houndstooth skirt, a turtleneck sweater, boots and some black ankle socks and you've got a perfect cold weather outfit! I included two different jackets in this look, so you can chose depending on how cold your Winter gets. I'd definitely need the heavier one.
3. All Over Sequins

All over sequins are a party essential and this long sleeved black dress is perfect for an occasion like New Years Eve. Boots are a nice change from heels (and will keep your feet warmer!).
Add a trendy choker and a statement magenta lip and you're ready for Winter! I know, it's August, but it's always good to be prepared!
Rivet & Thread embroidered star jeans, $225, available at Madewell.
I've had my eye on these Rivet & Thread embroidered star jeans since Madewell released its fall lookbook in July, but they didn't pop up on the site until after the brand's daily denim promotion over the last month. But now these limited-edition cropped flares are finally available in all their patriotic glory — albeit for a higher price than my bank account would like me to pay, $225. Sigh. Darn me and my love for kitschy, cute things.
But back to the denim at hand: I usually associate wearing the flag's colors with summer — Fourth of July and all that — but with the ongoing election fever, it feels more than apt to wear our nation's symbols as the season turns. Plus, the stars are small enough to look like any other preppy pattern. That and the very high waist, long belt loops and exterior front pockets make for one sensational pair of pants. Red, white and beautiful.
