Kendall Jenner Calls This Her Go-To Casual Look

When you think of a poster woman for the athleisure trend, Kendall Jenner probably comes to mind. The model has championed the sporty-cool off-duty look, making a pair of leggings a wardrobe staple. And while she has styled her leggings in many different ways, at the moment, there's one uniform she considers her go-to.



Kendall shared on her website that the secret to her casual uniform is the three-piece formula of leggings, a rocker tee or crop top, and a bomber jacket, an ensemble she considers "comfortable-cool and ready to go anywhere!" Her last note: Finish off with a mini bag for a cute twist. The laid-back ensemble is perfect for whatever your weekend plans may be. So if you're looking for the way to wear your leggings now, this is it!

Can You Guess the $50,000 Difference Between These Engagement Rings?

Take a good look at the below photo. While both are five-carat stones, there’s an outstanding $50,000 difference between the stunners. One of our favorite jewelers Stephanie Gottlieb (if you don’t already follow her on Instagram, now is the time) posted the fascinating photo last night, asking her followers to guess which is the more expensive diamond.



The jewel expert let our guesses soak in overnight, and then posted the answer on her feed this morning. In a mesmerizing video, she lets the dazzler shine and sparkle while in her caption, she explains everything you need to know about why the right diamond rings in at $50,000 more. “It's a 5 Carat EVS2. The one on the Left was a GVS2. Aside from the different length-to-width ratios (the one on the Left being chubbier, and this one more elongated), the only major difference was the color. In order to see a difference in color when looking at two stones, you generally have to jump two color grades,” Gottlieb explained.

Karl Lagerfeld is About to Expand His Résumé

Karl Lagerfeld fans: Get ready for some serious bling in your future because the designer is teaming up with Swarovski for a collection you'll want to get your hands on this fall. WWD reports that the 83-year-old's namesake label has "signed an exclusive multi-year licensing agreement with Swarovski Group to produce a line of fashion jewelry."



This means KL designs are about to get a sparkly makeover, and we'll be seeing the Australian brand's signature crystals featured on the designs. The line won't go on sale until September, but a preview will make its debut in March at the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show. Karl Lagerfeld CEO Pier Paolo Righi explains the decision to expand the brand's jewelry collection with Swarovski: "Karl is the man of accessorization and jewelry. It was, therefore, the next natural step for us to expand our product range with a fashion jewelry collection." According to WWD, we can expect to see two collections per year, featuring necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings in the price range of about $53 to $266. Not too bad for a piece of Lagerfeld-approved baubles.

Is Amal Clooney Bringing Back This Forgotten Boot Trend?

Take a look at your shoe closet: How many different styles of boots do you own? If you're anything like us, your ultimate go-to is probably a pair of ever-popular ankle boots, which crop up everywhere this time of year.



But if you've been thinking of expanding your repertoire, we found the perfect silhouette to try, courtesy of Amal Clooney. Snapped on a stroll with husband George in the British countryside this week, Amal wore the trend you might have forgotten about: riding boots. She paired her brown leather versions with a cozy cable-knit sweater, parka, and beanie. We may have deemed riding boots "out" back in 2015, but Clooney is officially convincing us to now resurrect them from the back of our closets. Has she swayed you as well? We rounded up a trio of styles that are strikingly similar to Clooney's pair so you can test-drive the look for yourself.

This Is the #1 Shoe Trend to Try Now

There's something precious about white shoes. They're sleek, sophisticated, and, let's just say, not meant for a day in the wild. And while in the past, the shade has been a summer-only choice, lately we've seen street style stars and It girls adopt the trend all year round.



And if you needed further proof that the style is here to stay, retailer Net-a-Porter is crowing them as your new go-to shoe. The trick to pulling off white footwear this time of year is letting your shoes stand out as a statement piece. Style them with relaxed jeans or a printed midi dress, and you'll be good to go. We know you’ll always have a soft spot for black booties or colorful mules, but this is the trend you’ll want to try ASAP. So dive in, and don't be afraid of getting your shoes a little dirty. They'll clean right up—we promise.

The Bohemian Trend Is Alive and Well in Dior Pre-Fall

Bohemian style is a trend that never fully disappears. It's popularity ebbs and flows. And coming off of a year when sneakers, leggings, and all things athleisure were ubiquitous, the arrival of Dior's Pre-Fall 17 collection, which embraces romantic style, comes just in time. Everything about Dior in the last several months has seemed like a breath of fresh air.



The first female Creative Director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, stepped in, the brand took a stance on female empowerment, and even the gowns seemed to make wearers look like they were floating rather than walking across the red carpet. Now, the new designs for pre-fall welcome back tassel-lined dresses, dizzyingly pretty prints, crocheted patterns, and long, thin chains of gold that accent the looks. And because the Dior woman is far from one-note, this Bohemian collection also feels grounded in leather, denim, and impeccable tailoring. (What else would you expect from Dior?) Plus, the unforgettable "We should all be feminists" shirts make a return, and we have a feeling they might be sticking around for a while.
