"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening" - Coco Chanel

Crystal-Inspired Prints Seriously Rock

By: Dawn Ferguson: 
Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but give us a garment covered in crystals and you can count on us going wide-eyed and weak at the knees—and we're talking about a graphic designer's take on the bona-fide bling. This season's cartoon-like crystals are being unearthed in all forms, from multicolored digital prints to rad, oversized renditions on unexpected accessories. Best part about it? We've gone mining through the web for you and pulled up some of our faves, so you can infuse your summer look with a cool factor that's crystal clear. Talk about giving new meaning to "diamond in the rough!"

If there's one thing we all have in excess in our wardrobes, it's denim. And this spring and summer's ample styles, fades, and cuts made this timeless blue classic more versatile and wearable than ever. So, as the temps start to fall, we recommend taking a tip from these well-heeled New Yorkers who show us how to fashion chambray, raw denim, and old well-worn favorites in some inspiring new ways. Even head-to-toe blue in varying shades gives the summer-to-fall uniform a whole new attitude. From lean coveralls to vintage vests, tell us which denim look and essential fits your summer-to-fall switch best...you know we're listening.
