I’m sure you have LBDs stockpiled from here to the next century, but what about LRDs? Red is one of my favorite colors. It’s empowering – and also actually a neutral – so I’m pleased to see it taking center stage this season. Which one will have you going rouge?

Selena Gomez x A.L.C. Driver Dress: Shifting into High Gear

Unlike most pop stars, Selena Gomez has staying power, for her sense of style (or choice of stylist!) at the very least. Stepping out in London wearing this black Driver dress from A.L.C.’s Holiday 2015 collection, she was pure class and sophistication – but not in a dated way. We saw the slit skirt style going up and down the runways at NYFW, and the cutout in the back is equally on-trend.

Street Style Trend Alert: Vita Kin

From fringe to hobo bags to exaggerated hoop earrings, the boho look is a fashion favorite at the moment, and none are doing it as well as Ukranian brand Vita Kinicon. For one thing, the style – vyshyvanka, the nation’s traditional embroidered clothing – is a different take on boho than we’re used to seeing.

Moschino Toys Embellished Heavy Wool Knit Dress: I Can’t Bear It

I often get ridiculed by my husband for the fashion trends I adore. I find myself defending the principles of fashion, like they’re First Amendment rights. But here, thanks to a single frivolous piece of clothing, my entire case crumbles…

Trend Alert: Dropped Waist Plaid Dresses

Emma Roberts loves Elkin. She’s modeled for Kara and Brit Smith’s LA-based brand, and is often seen wearing their easy pieces while out running errands. What I love about their Spring ’15 silk number is its nod to the current trend of dropped waist plaid minis.
