Get On Top of the Hottest Bottoms for the Cool Seasons

No, this isn't an article about spring trends. But it does involve some daringly short shorts and floral prints. So what gives? Well, it seems that the most buzzed about bottom, our beloved leggings, have got a new partner in crime for the fall season. Just when you thought it was time to throw all of those shorts into storage until next spring, they're becoming a must-have fall item instead. We're even seeing tons of new styles hitting the racks.

And we're pretty sure this wouldn't be the case if it weren't for the shorts' style soulmate, a pair of ultra-versatile tights. It's been confirmed for awhile now that leggings are no longer just for the gym, but this season's newest styles are bringing the already hot item to even new heights. With countless fresh fabrics, textures, and prints emerging, nothing is out of play. As earlier inferred, even florals are defying the cold and continuing to blossom on the frames of fashionistas everywhere.

No GTL Required for This Jersey Shore Costume

If you thought Jersey's ongoing presence in the media couldn't get any more paramount - think again. HBO's newest series, Boardwalk Empire, marks yet another show that encompasses tales of the Garden State. This prohibition-era program, however, pays homage to the Jersey Shore in a much classier - and less shameless - way than our favorite GTL'ers from MTV.

Scorsese fans and HBO enthusiasts alike tuned in to the premiere in late September, and were quickly enthralled by wardrobes as eye-catching and mesmerizing as the eerily nostalgic cinematography.

What's Dark, Shiny, and Glamorous All Over?

NYE party plans? Check. LBD? Check. Bedazzling eyes? Check - once you've watched Youtube sensation and beauty guru Michelle Phan's tutorial below, that is. In this episode, she dishes out her recipe for a gaze so glamorous that once you've locked eyes with that dreamboat across the bar, he won't be able to look away.

Sounds great, right? And it's super-easy, too. Phan always makes her various guises look like effortless (how does she do it without a mirror?!), but this look really is rather simple and only requires a few key products beyond what you most likely already have.

Is That the Fourth Kardashian Sister?

The Kardashian sisters are notorious for their enviable party style and to-die-for wardrobes. And what better night to showcase both together than on New Year's Eve?

While we may not be getting paid thousands of dollars to host a party this year, we can still feel like a celebrity in a stellar yet affordable party dress. Here are some versions of our favorite party girls' frocks from last NYE - sister style!

All three Kardashians glittered and sparkled while popping bubbly at LAX last year. Luckily, sequins and shine are still in style for this holiday season, and there are plenty of options for a girl on a budget.

Our Two Cents on JCPenney's Facelift

"New look. New year. Who knew!"

Over the last several years, JCPenney has made dramatic strides in 'stepping up' its style and, as a result, now offers a better, more exciting shopping experience than ever before."

10...9...8 NYE Dresses For Under $100

While we're busy planning our perfect parody for this Halloween's festivities, we'll soon feel another headache coming on. Three words: New Year's Eve. And clearly the biggest question of all is, what to wear?

NYE is the one night of the year where the flashier and more ornate, the better. It can be tempting to splurge on an eye-catching dress because, hey, you need to be sure you're looking good enough to snatch a kiss when the ball drops.
