DIY Lana Del Rey Flower Headband [Craft Post]

We found this awesome video on how to create a Lana Del Rey inspired floral headband. Lana has an awesome style that's a mix of classic American sportswear, 1960s glamour, and a dash of hiphop. This floral head band probably isn't something you can wear all the time, but it feels festive and maybe a great thing to spruce up your outfit come X-mas dinner.

Fashion Porn: Put a Bow on It

A bow detail is the perfect juxtaposition to the more masculine pieces popular right now. Bows are inherently girly (unless it's a bow-tie!) and even the smallest one can soften the baggy silhouettes of boyfriend blazers or army jackets.

It's almost the end of the year. As you're making your New Year's resolution list, here's something to think about: punching up your style for 2011.

8 Under $20: Leopard Accessories

<a href="https://collegecandy.com/2010/10/07/fashion-porn-gettin-it-on-at-the-zoo/">Animal prints have been hot for the last few seasons, but leopard prints are especially huge this season. However, this trend can be tricky to pull off--too much and you'll just end up looking trashy. Or like Snooki. Or worse, Angelina.

Budget Stylista: Liven Up That Winter ‘Drobe

I get it. With winter carrying on for another 6 weeks your life really does feel like Groundhog Day since you wear the same thing day after day...after day: jeans and a black top, or sometimes, if you’re feeling a bit crazy, jeans and white one. After the novelty of a cute winter ‘drobe wore off (like the 2nd week of negative temps and slushy snow), it’s hard to put any effort into looking presentable and unique.

8 Under $20: Hair Accessories

Though grossly under-rated, hair accessories might be one of the best ways to spice up an outfit and add a special flair. Cheaper than a hot pair of shoes and more practical than a bunch of bangles, headbands and hairpins do double duty: they accessorize and pull that hair out of your face.

Fashion Porn: Metallic Orgy

When it comes to fashion, I'm like a Magpie; I'm instantly attracted to anything that sparkles or shines. And then I buy it. In four colors. Lucky for me, metallics have been all the rage for the last few years and the fashion gods have decided to keep it around for yet another season!

Wardrobe Wish List: Anthropologie’s Twinkle Headband

It’s that time of the semester when all that skipped reading starts to catch up with us and we see more of the library then we do the outside world. Let’s just say I’ve resorted to flipping my socks inside out. I barely have time to eat, let alone sit in the laundry room for 2 hours duking it out for a dryer, only to trek back to my room with a pile full of wet clothes.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: The Perfect Ruched Headwrap

Hair flair can transform an entire outfit and conceal your unwashed hair on days when you just don’t have time to shower. More importantly, unlike those expensive skinny jeans you picked up at the Nordstrom half-yearly sale, hair flair will always fit regardless of those holiday pounds, the freshmen fifteen, or the beer belly you’ve been sporting since football season.

Day-to-Night Styler: Turn Back Time

Vintage/vintage-inspired fashion is a great way to add a fun flair to the every day. Why wear a simple cotton dress when you can easily bring a unique retro look into the mix? I'm all about playing with fashion, so this week's Day-to-Night Styler is taking a trip down memory lane. I found a darling 50's style dress that can smoothly transition from day to night and look totally bangin' wherever you decide to wear it.
