Try pairing the sweaters with a dark skinny denim or even a fitted pair of leather pants to make the sweaters a little more edgy. Add a sky-high heel and your look is complete!

Taylor Tomasi Hill - Style Icon

Taylor Tomasi Hill 

Every person has their style icon - whether you're a male, looking up to a singer or actor (in my opinion, everyone should be keeping their eyes on Kanye West) or a female, looking up to a model or socialite, there is someone whose style you worship, admire or attempt to recreate. My 'person' is Taylor Tomasi Hill. Taylor is the Style and Accessories Director at Marie Claire magazine and this past summer I was lucky enough to work in the Fashion Closet at MC and watch as Taylor put together amazing spreads for upcoming issues. Taylor's creativity extends beyond her wardrobe - the spreads that she puts together for Marie Claire are some of the most creative and innovative that I've seen in fashion magazines. Below are just a few of my favorite images of Taylor showcasing her amazing style.

Check out Taylor's facebook page here if you'd like to see some more images of her amazing style or even pictures of her Great Gatsby themed wedding! I also recommend that you head over to Fashionologie and check out Taylor's first photos where she is the featured model.

Rachel Bilson in NYC for ShoeMint Preview

Rachel Bilson has come a long way from her Newport Beach days as Summer Roberts on her famed TV show, The OC. The budding fashionista has thrown her ‘Summer-esque’ look of denim skirts and polos behind her and is quickly becoming one of the biggest style stars in Hollywood. On a recent trip to New York City to promote her upcoming shoe line, a collaboration with designer Steve Madden, longtime stylist and friend Nicole Chavez, and BeachMint, Rachel Bilson was spotted wearing a Suno lace dress, Vanessa Bruno blazer and her very own ShoeMint Mary Janes! Want to get Bilson’s fabulous look for less? It’s easy!

Bilson’s Vanessa Bruno blazer hits her at her waist and features fabulous padded shoulders; mimic this look with this great deal from Forever 21. For just $27.80 you can get a blazer that is eerily similar! The shawl lapel even adds a fun twist to this classic style jacket!

Swap Rachel’s direct off the runway Suno dress for this lace dress that is from Forever 21 as well! At a modest price of just $24.80 you can finally have that classic LWD (little white dress) hanging in your closet!

 Love Rachel’s shoes as much as the rest of us? Check out these dove-gray Mary Janes from AMI Clubwear for only $18.99. Fun fact: Rachel Bilson’s shoe line is being unveiled in November and is featuring shoes at affordable prices for everyone! So if you’d like to authenticate your Rachel Bilson look, head over to ShoeMint.Com and sign up to receive notifications the instant her line becomes available!

Classic black wayfarers should be a staple in everyone’s accessories drawer, so if you don’t own a pair yet try these Ray-Ban look-a-likes from Claire’s ($8.50) 

Finish off the look with the perfect bag! While yes, we all would die for a Chanel bag like Rachel’s, this similar style bag is much more attainable at a price tag of just $39.00, from LuLu's
