The Office Uniform Remixed: We Can Work It Out

Dressing appropriately for work is not always easy for a Snob with a strict office dress code, but where there’s a will, there’s a way! Replace those boring khakis with some color and add some sophisticated sparkle via unique, yet understated black crystals. Show your respects to the traditional office uniform with a basic white button-down and some black heels (closed-toe is a must).

Top 5 Floral Sweatshirts: Garden Party

Florals were of course a big part of the Spring 2014 shows, but who says you have to wait ‘till then to blossom? These flowers take the sweatshirt out of the gym and onto the streets. These are too pretty to sweat in, after all. Dress them up with pencil skirts or down with skinny jeans. You can even belt them for a sleeker look. This is the most versatile style of the season!

Best Quilting: The New Radicals

When it comes to quilting, Coco Chanel pretty much cornered the market. Her signature style is classic, sophisticated, and beloved by all Snobs. But quilting has come a long way since she designed her first flap bags and tweed jackets. See what designers are doing with the look today…

Lady Gaga x Balmain

Lady Gaga x Balmain: Cue the Applause

Life is one big costume change for Lady Gaga. The singer stepped out yesterday in not one, but two incredible Balmain F/W 2013 outfits while promoting her new single “Applause.” In fact, the purple skirticon (on NET-A-PORTER for $3,163) was her third outfit of the day! I guess when you’re known for wearing meat dresses and lobster heels, you have to keep everyone guessing.

Fall’s Best Pants

Fall’s Best Pants: Seeing Spots

Wondering what to wear with fall’s must-have leather jackets? I say embrace your animal instincts with a pair of leopard-print pants. We’ve been obsessing over the trend on accessories, and it’s just as chic on slacks. Slouchy, fitted, Frugal…there are plenty of the options.

Frugal Full Midi Skirts

Frugal Full Midi Skirts: The Inbetweeners

Mini, midi, or maxi? That is the question. Even though it’s summer, I haven’t been in the mood for minis lately, and at my height, I am just not a maxi girl. The only solution is to meet in the midi ground – a length that flatters all heights and figures. Since these are full skirts, keep your top fitted to balance out the volume.

Miley Cyrus x Marc Jacobs: Protect the Skin You’re In

Miley Cyrus turned a lot of heads this year at the MET Ball when she arrived in a racy mesh Marc Jacobs dress. Who knew that would be one of their tamer collaborations? Now the pop diva has stripped down entirely for the designer’s “Protect the Skin You’re In” campaign. And she’s not the first celeb to have done it…
