Current model crush: Chanel Iman

Chanel Iman is not just an interesting name. She happens to be one of the most successful American models who, at the age of 19, has already achieved the title of fashion’s newest “it girl” having graced the covers of Time Magazine Style & Design and Vogue. Some of her other accomplishments include modeling for top fashion houses including Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs, Herm├Ęs, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, etc,  as well as being a muse for designer Phillip Lim. She is definitely one lucky lady!

I love her on the runway, but I love her even more off the runway. Her personal style is super fun, creative, quirky and very age appropriate.

Fur fashion trend: fur coats, fur clothing..

In times of an economic downturn, the fashion world looks to ways to renew our desire for luxury, and there's nothing like a faux fur coat or accessory to make you feel all luxurious and glamorous, yet warm and fuzzy when the temperature drops. Cozy up to this season's bevy of faux fur jackets, capes, vests, scarves and more.

Don't want to commit to a major furry look? Opt for something trimmed in faux fur instead.

Lustable - Leather shorts

Traditionally worn by Bavarian boys and yodelers, lederhosen (leather shorts and pants) don’t exactly scream high fashion. But lose the front flaps, unclip the suspenders, give them a modern cut and slap them on an aloof model, and suddenly you’ve got this season’s hottest fashion trend: leather shorts. Offering an alternative to pants or a skirt this summer, leather shorts are taking over both the red carpet and the streets.

Leather shorts are a chic transeasonal item, just as fabulous with sky high heels and bare legs on summer nights as with opaques and boots in the cooler months. There are so many opportunities to make the leather shorts more ‘wearable’ – you can make them more elegant and innocent in a second by following just a few steps and you’ll still have a trendy and edgy look! Add a killer pair of wedges, tuck the blouse into the shorts and pull your hair back into a bun. You’ll have a feminine, but edgy look that is suitable for any situation. Voila!
