It might be hard to picture Kate Middleton getting down at a wedding, popping on a glow stick necklace and doing the "Cha Cha Slide," but one thing that tells us she's more than set for her sister Pippa's big day? Her wardrobe, which includes a variety of sparkling and chiffon gowns that would definitely work for maid of honor duty. While we still have no clue what styles Pippa picked out for Kate - or if the royal will even be in her sister's wedding, since her appearance could cause a whole lot of chaos - the duchess's past looks could very well be the inspiration the bride-to-be needs and has us dreaming up possibilities.
Scroll through to see the ensembles that prove Kate will look lovely standing by her sister's side, then check out our predictions for Pippa's wedding dress.(image)

A few days after Lea Michele attended Glee costar Becca Tobin's wedding, the actress traded in her Winter coat for a swimsuit. Lea was snapped on the beach wearing a cobalt blue one-piece, but it wasn't the bathing suit that caught our eyes first. It was actually her multicolored sarong, which she expertly tied to her waist.
While some accessorize with body chains at the beach, Lea reminded us just how stylish and flattering a sarong can be. The piece served as a breezy, eye-catching skirt as the star posed to show off the side of her leg. Most of us won't be experiencing beach-weather temps for quite a while, but we're still ready to shop some viable, Lea-inspired swim and sarong options - for vacation, perhaps? - ahead.(image)

When Louise Roe revealed she was marrying Mackenzie Hunkin, we knew the event would be something to "ooh" and "ahh" over later. It's rare that the host and influencer isn't dressed to the nines, and a quick look at her red carpet gowns proves she can flawlessly rock one, in any color, any day of the week. For her wedding, however, Louise went with a custom Atelier Pronovias option that included intricate lace details, a high neckline, and short sleeves. The piece, which was first revealed on Martha Stewart Weddings, dreamily trailed behind the bride as she walked down the aisle, revealing bold buttons all down the back.
Yet Louise's wedding look wasn't the only part of the day that had us completely captivated. She also put her bridesmaids in white Self-Portrait dresses, all different, trendy, and totally rewearable. Scroll through for photos of Louise and her ladies, and marvel at each brilliant and stylish choice.(image)

Ahh, Victoria Beckham and the chaos she's caused over her favorite shoes. One day she's declaring big love for flats and the next she's back in her sky-high stilettos. There was even a time she called out her favorite Adidas trainers on Instagram.
Be that as it may, Victoria's known to show excitement over her own collections by wearing them on the street. Her latest three street style looks come straight from her Pre-Fall 2017 line that recently debuted in New York. There seems to be a theme: groovy prints and fluted skirts or plaid pants that stop at midi length, all to show off the latest mule she created.
It fully encloses the foot like a boot, but gets capped off with a sharp nail at the heel, taking the design from retro to modern. Scroll to see Victoria work them in both taupe and white, with a ribbed dress and a flashy coordinate set too, and check them out on the lookbook model, then shop similar styles until you can pick up a pair that's actually got Victoria's name on them.(image)

When Michelle and Barack Obama sat down with People for a final interview before leaving the White House, they were perfectly coordinated. Their outfits, muted in shade but nonetheless eye-catching, spoke to the tone of the photo shoot: Michelle and Barack are going out with a bang. They've been publicly united for eight years when it comes to political issues, and their deep-navy looks - Barack's finished with a royal-blue tie and Michelle's featuring eye-catching details - reflected that sentiment.
We couldn't have picked better ensembles for them to wear for the occasion, but then again, Michelle has always been one to blow us away with her fashion choices. Here, she wore a Derek Lam number with shoulder cutouts and contrast velvet pleating, speaking to the season's trends but also the conundrum every power woman faces: how can you steal the spotlight while keeping sophistication in mind? It starts with a piece like the FLOTUS's. Luckily, you can shop her dress, along with similar options, when you scroll.(image)

If Princess Eugenie of York looks familiar to you, it's because you might mistake her for her older sister, Princess Beatrice. The pair boast plenty of similarities, including their stylish wardrobes and preference for sophisticated cuts. Now that rumors are swirling about Princess Eugenie's engagement to her longterm boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank, we can only imagine the royal wedding dress that might be in the 26-year-old's future.
When coordinating an outfit, Eugenie always keeps her figure in mind, opting for pieces that are flattering, but shimmery enough to make a statement. A scroll through her past ensembles ensures she'll need very little help choosing a bridal look, whenever the time comes. Read on to see why Princess Eugenie's fashion moves just might have some people pining for that wedding announcement.(image)

We sometimes forget the relatable Kate Middleton is, in fact, royalty; but when she stepped out for the annual Diplomatic Corps reception at Buckingham Palace on Thursday night, she looked every bit like a real-life princess. It's perhaps one of her most "princess-y" appearances to date, thanks to a powerful red Jenny Packham gown that Kate's worn before, and a particularly glamorous family heirloom.
Kate finished the look with the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara, a piece once beloved by Princess Diana. It's the second time the duchess has worn the tiara, which resides in Queen Elizabeth II's collection. With its massive pearls, surrounded by diamonds, it's a stunning piece to cap off her jaw-dropping look. Read on to see her portrait and get a closer glimpse at the gown and the jewels.(image)

And then there are the obvious questions you might ask yourself when you peer in the mirror: is my hemline too short? Is this blouse too sparkly, too New Year's Eve? Should I be wearing tights with this?

You might have heard Princess Beatrice's name with ties to Uber executive Dave Clark. The longtime couple made headlines recently with news of their split, but we're here to prove the Royal Highness of York can hold her own. Not only does the princess regularly attend family events alongside her younger sister, Eugenie; her grandmother Queen Elizabeth II; and Kate Middleton, but she also participates in charity work and is developing a career in business.
From a fashion perspective, Beatrice is a natural. Her wardrobe consists of key pieces that turn heads on the red carpet, at fashion shows, and on the street, but it's the way she wears them that counts. While the princess favors Peter Pan collars, avant-garde fascinators, and all sorts of embellishments, every outfit includes an element of surprise. Read on for 73 lessons you can learn just by studying her style.(image)

Admittedly, there are days I come to work lacking the inspiration I need to write about fashion: yet another It girl has scored another fashion campaign or another magazine cover. But Gigi Hadid, who just won model of the year at the British Fashion Awards, just reassured me that my job is important, that there is a message behind every ad I cover and a sure-as-hell connection between every woman posing for the camera and the designer who put her up to the task.
"The successful ones in this industry right now are actually cool," Gigi said as she sat cross-legged on the floor surrounded by a bunch of editors who came to talk to her about her #PerfectNever campaign with Reebok. As always, Gigi pushed the importance of being kind to the people she works with in the fashion industry, which has so graciously accepted her and celebrated her strong mentality instead of focusing solely on her body.
But what, I wondered, does Gigi think still needs to change? The idea behind her partnership with Reebok is simply that we should create our own standards for ourselves but never strive for perfection. The same goes for the fashion industry - it will never be 100 percent inclusive, lack total superficiality, and exhibit complete understanding of all cultures and races. The fashion industry will never be perfect, but what does Gigi think is its next step toward greatness?
Ahead, read bits from my conversation with Gigi, all of which inspired me to run home, get to work, and relay the message: the fashion world has come a long way, but we have work to do. Here's where she thinks we should start (and where I, myself, promise to).(image)

As Heidi Klum would say, "One day you're in, and the next day you're out." This could not ring more true for clothes we've worn and trends we've tried in 2016. So what exactly are we saying bye to this year? At the top of the list are black shoelace-style chokers and Stan Smiths - items every fashion girl, including us, sported in one Instagram snap or another. Our reasons for saying bye to the 10 items ahead are quite simple: the new year has inspired us to switch things up. The year 2017 may signify a new you, or at the very least, new clothes (let's toast to that).
Based on our own tastes and Spring '17 runway trends, we've compiled a list of items to retire next year. Whether you have been holding on to that jacket for far too many years or are sick of a particular trend, 2017 is the time to begin anew with your style. Give those pieces a break, and then check out the updated alternatives to wear instead.(image)

Chrissy Teigen may be quite the jokester, but one thing she never kids about? Her outfits, which are always on-trend and something to covet, especially when it comes to footwear. But as fans of the stylish star, we've started to notice a little something: Chrissy's always in heels and hardly ever rocks flats. It wasn't even until earlier this year that she dared to wear sneakers outside of the gym.
So when we met up with Chrissy to discuss her Stella Artois partnership and "Host One to Remember" campaign, we asked her about her heel obsession and if she did, indeed, have a favorite pair of flats.
"I only wear heels," she told us, going through a list of reasons that support her decision (and bringing back memories of the old, stiletto-loving Victoria Beckham).
"I'm very uncomfortable in flats. My calves are actually abnormally tight, [and I'm] flat footed and very relaxed in a 6-inch heel. It's very bad for your lower back, and I have to see a chiropractor twice a week because of it, but, yeah. I can't even wear Havaianas flip-flops because I don't like things in between my toes. Ballet flats look goofy on me because you can see the shape of my foot through them."
But as for sneakers? Chrissy would make an exception - if they were trendy enough.
"I'd say unless it's a Yeezy or something that just makes me feel cool, that's pretty much the only thing that's going to happen. Those or Common Projects. You know how some people get away with those cute white [sneakers] with their little shorts? I look so silly. I look like I'm playing dress up as Skipper or something."

Not everything from Kate Middleton's single-girl wardrobe has made it into royal rotation, but there are a surprising number of items that have. Sure, the diamonds and designer pieces are built to last, but a simple jean skirt and high street labels have also made the grade. So what did she wear clubbing before she was married and later select for one of the most formal events in the royal calendar? And which slinky party dress has been spotted underneath a more conservative coat at a recent engagement? We've rounded up all the items that have worked just as well for both private citizen and public princess . . .(image)

So we know how we're spending this holiday season, and we know who we're spending it with, but now comes the really tricky part - what to wear? Luckily the Duchess of Cambridge has done the groundwork for us, and over the past few years has dressed for every occasion that we could possibly find ourselves in (and maybe a few more - hello diplomatic reception at Buckingham Palace.) Whether you're opting for a low-key Christmas at home, a tropical getaway, urban celebration, or snowy ski break, Kate has all the style inspo you could ever need . . .(image)

Telling yourself you'll stick to a budget is one thing. Following through with it, though? That's harder than it sounds - especially for fashion fanatics. We simply love shopping, stocking up on stylish It pieces that'll fill out our wardrobe and make it something special. But with a new year comes new trends, and 2017's biggest one might actually end up saving you money.
Seasonless fashion is on the rise, meaning it's time to invest in staples rather than of-the-moment items. It's layering, materials, and even lengths that are pushing this movement along, and designers are releasing see-now-buy-now collections, showcasing what's hot now - and likely will be for a while. Scroll through for reasons you, too, should get on board. Then shop what you'll need to help you do just that.(image)

Being a fashion girl is hard work. We keep up with all the latest trends, decide whether or not they're for us - or perhaps if we wish to work them in our own unique way - and keep a record of inspirational looks from celebs and bloggers alike. The struggle.

We love Amal Clooney for providing us with endless outfit inspiration every time she steps out of the house. But even more than that, we love Amal for being open to new styles, so much so that she surprises us with every appearance she makes.
Amal doesn't just stick to a particular look - one day she's showing off a groovy crochet dress with fringed wedges, and the next she's bringing major edge in ripped skinnies, booties, and a leather jacket.
We got down to business and decoded Amal's wardrobe, dividing her outfits into six unique classes. Read on to brush up on them all, and shop the appropriate essentials. We dare you to scoop up one from each category - Amal would be proud.(image)

Gigi Hadid is not someone who copies trends. Instead, she makes a look all her own. She works sporty slides with feminine lingerie and ties a cardigan around her neck in a move that's so 1950s, while effortlessly channeling the '90s with the rest of her look. Her brilliant outfits conjure images of one very iconic (albeit fictional) style icon: Carrie Bradshaw.
Just like the Sex and the City star, Gigi keeps a few sexy pieces in rotation - from a plaid crop top to thigh-highs - and updates them in quirky ways. Read on to see all the times Ms. Hadid and Ms. Bradshaw had the same idea when it came to fashion. If we didn't know any better, we'd say these two masterminds are the ultimate style twins.(image)

Whether you just want to wrap up something pretty or stick it in a stocking, there are plenty of instances where dropping a lot on a gift's not ideal. But even if you're capping off the grand total at $50, you can still shop for a fashion girl this holiday season. Think about her day-to-day: does she love to burn candles? How about her tough commute to work? Bet she could use a pair of eye-catching ear muffs for that. We even found affordable items that were totally on trend in 2016, from furry slides to silk bombers. Read on to gather presents that you'll feel proud to give, and not only because they're saving you some cash.(image)

You wore them until they were tattered and discolored years ago, but then, your Uggs sort of retired to the back of your closet. It's not that our trusty boots got less cozy, it's just that it was time to switch up our Winter look.
But Ugg is refreshing its label every season, rolling out brand-new styles, including short silhouettes in fresh colorways that look luxe paired with cropped jeans. In fact, bloggers and It girls are working their Uggs at all heights, with outfits that range from completely casual to high-fashion fancy.

Let's get one thing straight: nobody actually wants to look ugly at the ugly-Christmas-sweater party. The goal is to look festive and appropriately attired without trying too hard - and while still looking cute enough to mix and a-mingle during "Jingle Bell Rock." That's a tall order, but it's nothing one of these sweaters can't help you accomplish. From the bold sparkle on one very cool Topshop pullover to some serious Christmas cheer on a sweet reindeer-faced knit, these are merry and bright and decidedly cool.

For the premiere of Office Christmas Party in LA, Jennifer could have chosen a poufy gown or simple LBD, but the actress decided to throw it back to the '90s with an embellished slip. The Roberto Cavalli number was slightly more daring than her previous red carpet outfits thanks to sheer netting details and a low dip in the front. Jennifer accessorized with Fred Leighton jewels, and it's clear she has a taste for this sexy style.
In fact, she's always worn spaghetti-strap dresses on the red carpet. Whether it was a simple black design (that she paired with a choker) or a pink hue, the dress definitely speaks to Jennifer's personal style. Just scroll on to see some of her past dresses and then try telling us you don't see the similarities, too. If you're feeling reminiscent about the '90s like Jen, shop similar slips below.(image)
