There are many reasons why I love Michelle Obama. I won't bore you with all of them, but since this is a fashion blog, I'll say that two of the top ones are because she's not afraid to shop her closet or to purchase items from mass retailers. How economical! So unsurprisingly, when I spotted her in these $49.90 Zara shoes I did a little shimmy in delight.

The FLOTUS paired her ankle strap heels with a patterned Zero Maria Cornejo dress and her signature Alaia belt. The shoes are the perfect icing on this outfit-cake and here's why: They look far more expensive than what they actually cost and are incredibly versatile. They can easily be dressed up (as seen here) or down with jeans. Megan and I love them so much that we both got them in purple and might buy another color, too!

The fall runways showcased a broad range of hairstyles—braids, buns, ponytails, and even wigs. But there were unifying themes, too: A pervasive sense of ease; experimentation with texture; and an apparent belief that anything goes.

Do you hear that? It's the sound of hundreds of cover bands beginning to tune their guitars and trying to remember the lyrics to "Shout." Ladies and gentlemen (but mostly ladies), it's nearly wedding season.
So, it hasn’t snowed in nearly a week—does that mean it’s summer yet? Well, almost. But alas, just because you’re confident setting aside your trusty Sorel boots unfortunately doesn’t mean you get to hop right into an itsy-bitsy-teenie-weenie yellow polka dot bikini just yet. Unless, of course, you’re headed somewhere tropical in the next few weeks (lucky you!) and really do need to stock up on sexy swimsuits right now.
Getting away from it all for a bit? Your vacation wardrobe should be just like your plans: laid-back but totally fabulous. Take a cue from these celebrities, whose low-effort, high-style outfit ideas are officially on our must-copy list.
