File this under Brilliant Inventions: the double-sided earring. By replacing the normal, utilitarian earring back with an aesthetically pleasing one, even the simplest studs become statements.

This ingenious jewelry concept looks great from all angles, and the options are endless. From wrap-around ear jackets to double-sided studs and animals (like the unicorns shown below) there is a style for everyone.

The best part about this trend is it has long-lasting potential. Who wants to go back to boring earring backs after these glamorous 360 versions hit the market?

In today’s “why hasn’t this already happened?” news, WWD is reporting that Britney Spears will soon be launching a lingerie line.

Called The Intimate Britney Spears, the line will include lingerie sets, bustiers, kimonos, and even loungewear, like sweats, shorts, and camis. We are loving how inclusive this collection is: bras will have A to J cup sizing, while bottoms are available in sizes 0 to 28.

Spears also spoke to WWD about the collection:

“Every woman should feel confident and beautiful in everything she puts on. My vision for The Intimate Britney Spears is to create pieces that are sexy, luxurious and comfortable at the same time.”

The Intimate Britney Spears launches September 9, and will be sold at intimatebritneyspears.com in the U.S. and Canada, barenecessities.com, and some specialty boutiques throughout the U.S. and Canada. Prices range from $17 to $79.

Quiz: Which Fall 2014 Trend Should You Incorporate Into Your Back-to-School Look?

6 Comments

It’s almost August, which means many of us will be heading back to school before we know it. Even though the thought of a new semester with new professors and midterms galore may sound frightening, there’s one thing that every college fashionista can get excited about: back-to school-shopping!

After a summer of working and saving up, my money is burning a hole in my pocket, and I’m ready to buy some fall fashion! If you need some ideas for staying trendy while back-to-school shopping, take the quiz below to find out which Fall 2014 runway style you should rock on campus:

Quiz Results!

Below are the results to the quiz. If you haven’t taken it yet, then don’t peek! I’ve created an outfit inspired by each Fall 2014 trend. Scroll down to check them out:

Bright Mixed Colors

Fall 2014 with bright mixed colors
Product Information: Skort, Tank, Sunglasses, Purse, Shoes

This outfit is a perfect summer-to-fall transitional look. The bright colors are super young and fun, plus the orange handbag is stylish pick that can be carried throughout fall.

When mixing bright colors together, feel free tone it up or down as much as you’d like. Here, we mixed prints for an extra bold look, but you could also pair the skort with a solid-colored top or vice versa. After all, fashion is about making each trend your own!

Normcore

Product Information: Crop Pants, Blazer, Loafers, Watch, V-Neck

If normcore sounds like a made-up word, that’s because kind of is! A combination of “normal” and “hardcore”, the premise behind this trend is to blend in so much that you stand out. It’s essentially really intense casual wear.

Personally, this outfit is my favorite because it’s super versatile. Whether you’re meeting with your study group or are headed to class, polished jeans and a structured blazer are appropriate for almost anything and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Cardigan Craze

Back-to-School outfit: cutoffs, crop top, knit cardigan
Product Information: Shorts, Crop Top, Sweater, Boots, Hat

Cozy knits were all over the fall runways. Oversized, head-to-toe, colored and neutral – it was all there! This is another incredibly wearable trend since almost everyone has a trusty cardigan (or five) somewhere in their closet.

This look is ideal for a cold classroom or a late night library study session. Another way to up the high fashion factor? Pair it with sweater tights once the weather gets cooler to really emphasize the knit aspects of the outfit.

Sheer Brilliance

Back-to-School outfit: lace top, sheer panel shorts, sandals
Product Information: Shorts, Top, Cuff, Bag, Shoes, Bralette

Sheer pieces have been spotted in stores for a while now, but really blew up on runway this season. When worn tastefully and in toned-down colors, you can create a look that is sophisticated and collected.

If you’re looking for sheer clothes in stores, make sure everything that needs coverage gets coverage; if the bralette above is a bit risqué for your taste, a cami would look equally as cute underneath the lace top! Also, don’t over-do it with too many accessories. In this case, a sleek tote and gold cuff are all you need for a romantic and stylish ensemble.
