Fashion Porn: Do It In a Fall Jacket

One mom approved must-have for both fall and college is a chic fall jacket. The perfect fall jacket is neutral, goes with all your favorite clothes and fits just right. Not to mention, it "keeps you warm on those walks to class. You don't want to catch a cold!" (Thanks, ma.)

Fashion Porn: Gettin’ It On in the Military

If you've grown a bit sea sick from all the nautical-inspired clothes you've been sporting this summer, why not return to dry land and go more utilitarian with the military-inspired pieces dominating stores? These pieces have a harder look, with cargo pockets, neutral colors and grommet detailing.

Fashion Porn: Black and White Get it On!

With so many summer colors and patterns to choose from this year, it's hard to know what to pair them with. While you could pair the bright yellows, pretty pastels or the super popular turquoise with denim, khaki or another solid neutral, the bold black and white prints available this season are a more interesting way to go.

Fashion Porn: Summer Skirt Orgy

As the temperature starts to rise, it's time to bare those legs, soak up a little vitamin D (just make sure to wear sunscreen!), and enjoy the lovely weather. Sure, you could wear shorts, but then you gotta deal with that whole "thighs rub together and shorts ride up" situation. Plus, skirts are way more fun, and a cuter, flirtier way to show off those gams.

Fashion Porn: Hats & Sunglasses Get it On

There's one thing that hats and sunglasses have in common that make them super sexy. What is it? The fact they protect you from the sun! Essentials for summer, these are not only functional, but they also add pizazz to your look. Functional and stylish! What's not to love?

Fashion Porn: Tie Dye Orgy

There are some things that you can't get away with past college, but contrary to what some may believe, tie dye is not one of those things. It's shown up on nearly every runway and celebrity this season, and unlike those tie dye tees you used to make at summer camp, it's taken on a whole new level of fun sophistication.

Fashion Porn: Shorts & Rompers Get It On

Chances are you're seeing the light at the end of the cold month tunnel and feeling ready to bare those legs again. While dresses and skirts are the obvious way to show some leg, their counterparts, rompers and shorts, are another equally adorable option. A much more practical option, I might add, as they won't blow up when a lovely spring breeze blows through.

Fashion Porn: Prints and Patterns Get It On

There really is a pattern and a print for everyone. The only problem is, with so many options this season, how do you choose? Don't! Stock up on a wide variety of patterns and prints for a bright and fun spring/summer wardrobe.

Fashion Porn: Rain Gear Orgy

I love rain boots a little more than anyone my age probably should. However, I feel this love is justified - on top of being SUPER adorable, wellies also keep your feet dry, making them practical as well. Over the last few years, retailers have rolled out all sorts of fun, bright-colored, patterned boots for you to go dancing in the rain.

Fashion Porn: Nautical Orgy

According to reliable sources - namely, Punxsatawney Phil - there are still six weeks left of winter. That's six more weeks of singing the winter blues as we trek to class in our layers upon layers trying to avoid frostbite while still looking cute.

Fashion Porn: Grey Orgy

As we head back to school, the transition back to independence from mom's home cooking, added to the cold weather and lack of sunshine can lead to a gloomy, grey day. One way to embrace that blue mood is by dressing how you feel, made easy with the rising popularity of the color grey.

Fashion Porn: Glove & Mitten Orgy

Now that Halloween has come and gone, it means it's only going to start getting colder. Bundling up in a warm coat is not the only way to stay warm on a chilly autumn day - gloves or mittens are essential. Well, if you want to feel your hands upon arriving at your destination. Have you ever tried to grip a pen to take notes with numb hands? It ain't pretty.
