The classic greaser look is comprised of Levi's 501s, a slightly oversized leather jacket, and Harley Davidson-inspired biker boots. But nowadays this look has been reinvented time and time again. This 50s-inpsired look includes a fusion of structure and slouch, chains, bulk, and general badass.

Friday Faves: I Love Fall

I freakin’ love fall. I actually don’t think I can communicate in coherent sentences how I feel about the season. It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling in the pit of my stomach just thinking of the crisp air, the cozy sweaters, whip cream melting into mug of hot chocolate….I think I might have just wet myself.

Surprisingly Cute: New York and Company [GALLERY]

To me, New York and Co. was always the store I passed as I walked from Macys to The Gap. Yeah, some of the stuff in the window looked cute, but most of it looked like the stuff librarians wear to work. But one day I decided to pop in and after digging through those Mom jeans and ugly sweaters, I actually found good stuff. No, GREAT stuff.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Reese Witherspoon is Comfy and Cozy

Reese Witherspoon has been flying under the radar for awhile. I hate to think her time has passed, but lately, I haven't been super compelled to see any of her projects (and apparently I'm not alone, if the performance of her latest flick "How Do You Know" is any indication...)

Boots For You, Me, And Her – No Matter Your Calf Size! [GALLERY]

It's officially winter and the only appropriate footwear for this season are boots. Knee-high boots, over-the-knee boots, ankle boots, booties, shooties -- there are thousands of boots in fashion this year. Unfortunately, these boot trends don't always fit every calf-size out there. But don't worry! We are here to help.

Shop Your Closet: Sweatshirt

It's the week after Christmas, you've spent the weekend enjoying holiday treats and all you want to do is bum around the house. It's cold outside. You're cringing at the thought of stumbling out into the treacherous terrain, but you made plans to meet up with a friend.

Fashion Porn: Boots

Whether you're buying yourself a post-exam present or looking to put something on your list for Santa (with exact color, size and style....you don't want him to get it wrong, do you?) boots should be high on your list. Temperatures are dropping, the snow is starting to fall and your toes are starting to get cold.

Shop Your Closet: Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans have been popular for a long time now. You've probably got quite a few pairs in your closet and you've been wearing them for years. But that's the problem. There's only so many ways you can style a pair of skinnies and your everyday look is starting to get boring.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Gwen Stefani is Awe-Inspiring in Animal Print

It's been awhile since Gwen Stefani reigned pop music (yet I know I'm not the only one who still gets "this shiz is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s" stuck in her head), but she definitely hasn't been slacking on being a fashion icon.

The Weekly Ten: The Little Things I’m Thankful For

It's Thanksgiving week. You know what that means: more food than you’ll ever be able to eat, run ins with family members you'd really rather avoid and those awkward moments when everyone gathers together to say what they’re thankful for.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is Fierce in Fur

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. If her incredibly gorgeous-yet-pretentious name doesn't sound familiar to you yet, it will be by next summer. She is taking over Megan Fox's role as the "scantily-clad hot girl who shrieks and makes out with Shia LaBeouf" in the next Transformers movie (yes, ANOTHER one).

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Selena Gomez is Subtly Sassy

I adore Selena Gomez. Her face looks as if it were lifted from a porcelain doll. Her hair is so luminous and luxurious. Her music is perfect for those times when you're dancing in front of the mirror in your PJs with your hairbrush (in contrast to those times when you're dancing in front of the mirror in your highest stilettos and a bottle of Smirnoff)

Budget Stylista: Combat Boots Done Right

When we saw combat-inspired boots on the runways last year none of us thought that trend would ever take hold. (Doc Martens coming back? Pshaw.) But just like gaucho pants, maternity-style tops and moccasins, boy were we wrong.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Rachel Bilson is Relaxed and Radiant

Rachel's signature style is a combination of trendy and classic. She constructs awesome outfits by mixing textures, sticking with flattering silhouettes, and choosing eye-catching accessories. And putting them all together flawlessly.

Finally -- summer's over! It's time for sweaters, boots, Starbucks' signature fall drinks, and for those leaves to start falling.

Here are five things that you probably enjoyed during your childhood that you can still enjoy this fall.

From CollegeFashion: Try Over-The-Knee Boots!

Hot last year and coming back for round two, over-the-knee boots are both hot for fall and tricky to wear. But if you know what you're doing (and you will after you read this), they could be the best fall accessory you'll ever own.

The September Issue: The Essentials

There are a lot of reasons to look forward to autumn: pumpkin spice lattes, the leaves changing color, good television, and - oh yeah - Fall fashion. September is the January of the fashion world, with designers battling it out to set this year’s trends, and magazines battling it out to report them.

Budget Stylista: Bring on the Boots

hate to admit it but fall is almost here. Major tear. But while I'm not excited for midterms, wool coats, shivering on my walk to class and being too cold to drink iced coffee, I am excited for boots (and really excited for Pumpkin Spice Lattes).

8 Under $20: Sundresses

Summer sundresses are awesome for so many reasons: they're comfy, they're cute and they're totally versatile. You can pair 'em with all kinds of shoes (flats, sandals, heels, wedges, boots; you name it, it can work), and you can wear 'em over a bikini, for those last warm days on campus, or for a night out.

8 Under $20: Turquoise – Spring’s IT Color

If Punxsutawney Phil was correct this year, we now only have 3 more weeks of winter, which means we can soon wash away those winter blues and bust out those spring styles. This year, Pantone's top color will be turquoise, which is not only a fun, bright color that can be mixed with everything from neutrals to browns to other brights, but it looks great on nearly everyone.

The Doc (Marten) Will See You Now

After perusing the style sections of some of my favorite magazines and websites, I've discovered something horrifying. Well, besides the price tags next to my favorite items. Much to my dismay, DOC MARTENS are back.

Campus Couture: Ashley, Northwestern

Ashley lives in the room next door to mine so I see her a lot. Yet somehow, every time I spot her in the hall (or lounging on her bed) she’s wearing something different that looks amazing on her. Ashley's got serious style. She not only knows what looks good, but she knows how to put things together that other people wouldn’t think of. And it always works.

8 Under $20: Overstock

You've seen the commercials (and most likely remember them because they used to discuss "the big O"), but have you actually perused Overstock.com? The site might be overwhelming to some, but that is because it is chock full of awesome deals on clothes, shoes and accessories (in addition to home goods, decor and linens). Overstock.com brings you items that are marked down by up to 80% (!!) and they ship fast and cheap.

8 Under $20: Last Minute NYE from Forever 21

Hard to believe that in only 2 days we'll be ringing in the new year and it'll have been a decade since all that Y2K mumbo jumbo. I know; that whole "only 2 days" thing freaked me out, too. Not because I'm not ready for 2010, but because I'm not ready for NYE.

8 Under $20: Victoria’s Secret

If I know one thing it's that girls who only shop at Victoria's Secret for the bras/panties/sexy lingerie are really missing out. That Vicki has a lot more to offer than lacy underthings that make your boobs look huge; Victoria's Secret is also an awesome place to stock up on clothes, shoes and beauty products. They even have jeans that give your butt some lift!

Fashion Porn: Boot Orgy

One of the must-have items this fall (and the fashion item that has taken the lead role in my dreams) is a pair of boots. Not only are they super functional, but boots are also one of the easiest, most-stylish ways to pull together an outfit.

It doesn’t matter if it’s rain or shine; Peggy always knows how to dress so she’ll stand out in a crowd and make any girl on campus want to emulate her. She has the cutest blazers for fall, the chic-est coats for winter, and the flirtiest dresses for spring. Her outfits are always full of personality - usually very colorful and bright, just like her!

The Smartest Accessory Ever Invented

I am a serial shopper. That being said, I see so many articles of clothing, pieces of jewelry and cool accessories in my daily internet perusals that I am rarely rendered speechless by something in particular. But girls, it has happened. I actually came across something that has stopped me dead in my Internet browsing tracks, screaming inside “OMFG! This is genius!”

8 Under $20: Express

So, Express isn't cheap. That is pretty obvious when you walk in and the hot shirt your eying for your birthday party is marked at $49. But every few months, they have a major sale. And I mean major. The kind that makes you giddy and happy and willing to sift through giant over-stuffed racks because the deals are just. that. good.
