I think we can all agree that getting caught in a rainstorm or leaving the house unprepared for the day’s precipitation is one of the most unfortunate weather scenarios to get caught in. As long as the weather report is accurate, we’ll be prepping for the next downpour by shopping the one essential we can’t really leave the house without: an umbrella. But not just any umbrella, a cute umbrella that won’t clash with the rest of your oufit (if you’re lucky). If you lament the fact that the clunky accessory so often obscures whatever cool combination your closet came up with that day, may we suggest giving a clear PVC umbrella a go? Alternately, for those facing an endless series of rainy days, swap thatclassic (read: boring) plain umbrella for a much more eye-catching version. Below, four cute umbrellas that were hand-picked to go with a weather-appropriate trench coat (or really any other jacket of choice).
While florals for spring may not exactly be a groundbreaking idea, we continue to love them (sorry, Miranda Priestly). Right on cue, floral prints are taking over on the runways once again, not to mention the feeds of our favorite style influencers and a decent portion of our current wish lists.
Whether they’re found in the scents on our vanities (like in Coach’s delicious new fragrance), the prints on our strappy sandals, or the bouquets on our countertops, blooms can’t help but elicit joy come spring. So how does your floral preference translate to your style? Scroll down to see how we investigated just that, with three fresh spring looks we can’t wait to wear.
If there’s one tried-and-true shoe style that we look to time and time again, it’s suede ankle boots. Of course, with any piece that makes a consistent appearance in your wardrobe, it’s easy to get into a style rut with them. However, with the resurgence of Western-inspired style à la Calvin Klein, these booties are getting the attention they deserve.
A classic pick for any outfit, this style will go with just about anything, whether it’s a pair of classic skinny jeans for a night out or a polished skirt for the office. Perhaps you want to stay true to the timeless Chelsea boots or you’re ready to take the cowboy trend by the reins—no pun intended. Or, if you’re itching to add some extra color to your outfits, opt for a bright style. No matter what you decide, we guarantee that with these boots, your outfit will look anything but tired.
Milan Fashion Week is in full swing, and Gucci‘s runway is always one of the most anticipated shows of fashion month. The brand’s F/W 18 collection is sure to be a feast for the eyes, as per usual, and just because you’re not sitting in the front row at the show doesn’t mean that you can’t see the collection at the same time as the fashion insiders in the audience. At 9 a.m. ET on February 21, Gucci will be live-streaming its F/W 18 collection straight from MFW, so you can see it for yourself close up. Ready to watch?
