SEEING STARS | 39 Reasons We Want Stars on Everything RN

via Elle Sweden

Originally posted in The CLOSET

Day or night, they are everywhere. Stars. Stars on errthang. Turn on Netflix and it's all about the Gilmore Girls and Stars Hollow. Apple Music? We get it The Weeknd: you're a starboy, starboy. Before I launch into this post, let me just remind you of the ridiculous lyrics to Starboy:

I'm tryna put you in the worst mood, ah
P1 cleaner than your church shoes, ah
Milli point two just to hurt you, ah
All red Lamb’ just to tease you, ah
None of these toys on lease too, ah
Made your whole year in a week too, yah
Main b*$%@ out your league too, ah
Side b*$%@  out of your league too, ah

House so empty, need a centerpiece
Twenty racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man I love my baby

I don't get it. Just me? Why is his girlfriend cleaning a piano with her face? Does anybody else get these lyrics? Like, love you The Weeknd but.... Le Petit Prince is a legit, OG starboy. I guess Chris Hadfield could call himself a starboy if he really wanted to. Like I said, I don't understand what makes the Weeknd a starboy or why he'd ever want anyone to call him one.

Back to stars, though: I'm obsessed.  From Valentino and Alexander McQueen's starry fall frocks, to the street, where every fashion girl is currently going galactic, stars make everything look so much cooler. Whether you go dainty with a sweet silver star charm necklace or dare to rock stars all over with a metallic starry dress, forego every other print this season and reach for the stars. I don't know about you but I can't get enough. 

I've rounded up 39 starry finds I'm loving right now, perfect for adding a bit of celestial charm to your wardrobe this winter. Happy shopping!

WHAT'S GOOD | Carine Roitfeld x Uniqlo

When Carine Roitfeld tells you what to wear, you listen. The former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris and world-renowned style-setter has perfected 'I Don't Give AF' with her just-rolled-out-of-my-boudoir hair, her I-didn't-bother-taking-my-makeup-off-last-night smoky eyes and a parade of neutral street style looks that makes women half her age constantly question their own coolness.  

Roitfeld was inspired by her own wardrobe (naturellement) to create her latest collection for Uniqlo. On-trend fur bombers, as well as updated classics, like tweed blazers, wool and shearling coats, textured pencil skirts and merino sweaters mash up in a capsule that would make a killer wardrobe for any wannabe Parisienne. And if you don't like it, you guessed it: she does not give AF. 

The collection hits Uniqlo stores today.

Chart Toppers | 35 Cozy Coats to Try On Now

via H&M

Originally posted in The CLOSET

If there's one thing I really love about fall, it's the fashion. And if I had to pick one part of fall fashion I love the most, it has to be outerwear. There is no greater fashion equalizer than a perfect cozy coat. I have literally worn my pyjamas to drop my kids off at school and I'm sure nobody had a clue. The trick? A banging black maxi coat, worn with oversized sunglasses and cool white Nike kicks. A good coat allows you to wear whatever you want underneath, ironed or not, and always look well dressed. Which kind of makes it the superhero of your fall wardrobe, don't you think?

This fall, there are so many toppers to get excited about. While the weather waffles, I'm stoked about the cute bombers and denim jackets in store. I'm especially loving the merlot and army green silky bombers for wearing solo over jeans, and the classic and extra-long denim jackets for wearing alone or layered under blazers and wool coats. Once the mercury dips (as it's bound to do one of these days), it's all about the statement oversized coat. A soft wool or wool blend coat in black, camel or navy is always classic, but then again, a cozy leopard print coat is tempting, too. From parkas to puffers to pretty shawl collars, you'll always be well dressed with the help of a great fall coat.

Ready to do a little pre-shop before you commit? Check out these 35 cute fall coats and get ready to cozy up...

FALL FASHION | The New Way to Layer

Don't let this last day of summer fool you for a single hot minute. Sure, it might not get freezing overnight, but before you know it, we'll be swapping our sandals for closed-toes, our tees for toppers and our breezy cute things for errthang cozy. The start of fall always signals a switch from simple, throw-on-and-go dressing to the all-important art of layering. For minimalists (aka the fashion lazy like me), layering can feel like a daunting task. I mean, seriously, who has time for mixing and matching textures and colours and playing with proportions to get it all just right when you've got 2 screaming kids, an early morning commute, or a snooze button addiction to contend with. Unless you're a stay-at-home stay-at-home, you don't.

Thankfully, this fall is all about laissez-faire layers that make all your casual go-to's look much cooler.  Whether it's an open grey sweater coat or cardi worn over your favourite slip dress, a plaid shirt dress worn open over your denim, or a  cozy statement sherpa bomber, you'll be begging for the cold weather to make an appearance, if only so you can start wearing these looks stat.
