Basics are great and all. But sometimes you just need that extra “Girl, you’re killing it” embellishment factor.

1. You can always count on bows to add a touch of innocence to even the most risqué silhouettes.

2. If you’re feeling more sassy than sweet, studs and spikes are your go-to. Just make sure you don’t accidentally bump into anyone on the subway.

3. There’s a reason beading never goes out of style: it’s versatile and instantly eye-catching.

4. We just can’t stop loving feathers. No matter what anyone says.

5. Faux fur is just really… fun. Oh, and it’s pretty warm. So that’s always an added bonus this time of year.

We thought we were doing style right. But these mini fashion fiends are giving us a run for our money.

1. Shabby chic. Vintage chic. Ethereal chic. Whatever you want to call it, these kids are Chic. Capital “C” required.

2. We’re wondering if these little ones might be so kind as to share who their stylists are…

3. Flower crowns and oversized spectacles are still in. We were debating it. Until we saw this.

4. If some pint-sized cuties can rock prints this hard, so can we.

5. Because at the end of the day, these kids prove style should never be taken too seriously.

Fall brings out all of our favorite flavors.

1. We don’t care how cliché it is. We want everything pumpkin. Right now.

2. Can we also get a round of applause for all things apple? Fall isn’t over until we hit the orchard.

3. Then there’s maple. It comes from trees, which means it’s basically as healthy as salad…

4. Autumn campfires demand cozy sweaters and gooey s’mores. Just give in.

5. Can we put caramel in everything we make? (Please say yes.) Our sweet tooth won’t be tamed.

Paris Fashion Week is about to bid us all adieu. Tear. So let’s take a moment to fall in love (again) with each of these fashion greats.

1. We could say a lot of things about Alexander McQueen but, for now, we’ll just say this: hauntingly beautiful.

2. Can we have a closet full of Lanvin? We promise we’ll take good care of it.

3. Valentino. Because if Jackie O loved it, so do we.

4. Let’s be real. Is there any fashion logo more iconic than Chanel‘s “CC”?

5. We adore Christian Dior. (Who doesn’t?)

Fashion is our thing. So, we obviously have love for the models that wear the clothes so well. Here are the catwalkers 2013 is all about…

1. She’s the face of Mulberry and the apple of Karl Lagerfeld’s eye. Plus, she has some of the best eyebrows we’ve ever seen. Cara Delevingne is It (with a capital “I”).

2. We were fans of Suki Waterhouse before we discovered she was Bradley Cooper’s rumored girlfriend. But it’s safe to say we liked her even more after we found out.

3. Sure, she’s only 5’7″, but with parents like Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, Georgia May Jagger was destined for the catwalk regardless of her height.

4. Jourdan Dunn is getting noticed for more than her pretty face. She’s on a mission to demand more diversity in the fashion world. And we’re into that.

5. She has hair the color of skittles, and by the looks of her Instagram, a killer personality to match. Chloe Norgaard, you rock.

We can’t stop staring at these bloggers. In the most polite way possible.

1. Jane Aldridge (Sea of Shoes) has red hair and red-hot style. Coincidence? Doubt it.

2. NYC’s modern-day Carrie Bradshaw? Blair Eadie (Atlantic-Pacific). Hey, someone had to step up to the challenge.

3. If she ever tires of blogging, Kristina Bazan (KAYTURE) could definitely take up a career in modeling.

4. We really want to hang out with Julia Engel (Gal Meets Glam). And organize a closet swap.

5. It’s clear Jessica Stein (Tuula) has a serious case of wanderlust. Good thing she has the wardrobe to match.

We can’t stop talking about (and looking at pictures of) New York Fashion Week. And Pinterest is only perpetuating the problem.

1. With so many people rushing around, it’s important to know who’s who.

2. Runway makeup is reimagined every season.

3. That moment when you realize street style is almost competing with the collections.

4. These shots make us feel so much closer to the front row.

5. Only the best of the best? Don’t mind if we do.

As happy as we were to have a day off, Labor Day weekend made us realize it’s about time to wave goodbye to these summer staples.

1. Popsicles just don’t taste as sweet when the temps turn down.

2. Goodbye, beach hair. Hello, sleek strands.

3. Sure, you can take a road trip any time of year, but the summer road trip is a classic.

4. ‘Tis the season for boats to hibernate.

5. You may have to wait awhile to see your blooming garden again, but at least you have new riding boots.

When solids seem like such a bore, it may be time to pull out the patterns.

1. The most popular of them all? Stripes. Upon stripes upon stripes.

2. Lucky for us, graphic prints cover almost every category imaginable.

3. Fact: People who wear polka dots have more fun.

4. Floral is getting fiercer by the day.

5. At this point, animal print is basically a neutral.

The impending change of seasons begs for more than just a wardrobe makeover. Hello, new home décor!

1. What does your bedroom say about you? (It has to say something.)

2. Chic bathrooms. Surprisingly, this isn’t an oxymoron.

3. Don’t tell, but we always put our feet on the living room couch.

4. The foyer is your first chance to make an impression. Make it good.

5. Our favorite part of the dining room? The food. Obviously.
