Jennifer Lopez's Take on the Lady Suit Involves a Lot of Skin (Naturally)

Nov/07/2014 at 07:00 PM ET

Jennifer Lopez‘s current style parade shows no signs of slowing down. We previously mentioned the star’s shift from her typical ‘Jenny From the Block’ dresscode to a more retro-inspired look, and now JLo has been testing out a different unique trend we like to call the ‘super-sexy lady suit.’

The Cotton Button-Down That Does Something Other Button-Downs Don't

Nov/05/2014 at 08:00 AM ET

If you don’t have a crisp classic button-down hanging in your closet, we’re about to make the case for why you need one. And if you do have a crisp classic button-down hanging in your closet, we’re about the make the case for why you need this particular shirt — because our bet is that this one is way better than any other version you’ve tried.

Editors here were hesitant when we saw the price tag, but we’d heard from multiple people that it’s a game-changing shirt so we put aside our doubts and put on the button-down. And now we know why people are willing to throw down that much cash on a piece of clothing (and why Oprah Winfrey named it a fashion must-have): It uses something called dual-button technology, which means that there is the regular row of buttons down the shirt, but there are also two hidden buttons placed exactly where shirts tend to gap (the worst).

And because of the unique cut, it won’t come untucked from your pants or skirt (also the worst). Plus, the shirt is made of cotton (the two blue ones and the purple are 97% cotton and the white version is over 70% cotton) so you know it’s comfortable and in the case of the former, machine washable!

Watch this video to see how it works:

One of the editors on the team, Zoë Ruderman, has already added the top to her wardrobe and is planning to pack it for her upcoming trip to Miami, where, along with Style Director Andrea Lavinthal, she’ll be attending Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show.

PEOPLE has teamed up with the brand on the really exciting full-day fashion event, which kicks off Friday, Nov. 7, at 8pm and features 1,440 different looks — and Andrea and Zoë will be providing live commentary for a bunch of those. (This crisp blue button-down with a white denim mini will be just the thing to wear for a hot night out in Miami.)

Shop the shirt by clicking on the product in the video above or going here. And don’t forget to catch Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show this Friday! You can watch live on People.com and follow us on Twitter for updates on the show and the celebs in attendance.

The Boots Everyone in Hollywood Is Wearing -- for Way, Way Less

Oct/20/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We’re not kidding when we say every celeb has a pair of black over-the-knee leather riding boots with a stretchy panel down the back. Emma Stone, Kate Moss, Angelina Jolie, Selena Gomez, Miranda Kerr, Leighton Meester — the list goes on. The difference between the boots they own and the boots we found for you in the video below is this: Theirs weigh in at over $600 and these cost a fraction of that.

We are all about these riding boots, so it’s a good thing they go with practically everything in our closets. We’ve been wearing ours with dresses and mini skirts sans tights, but now that the temperatures are dropping, we’re adding black opaques to the looks or pairing the boots with jeans or black skinnies.

Sure, we know the boots are something of an investment, but it’s one that’s well worth making. And not just because you’ll wear them to death this year; this is a classic style that’ll never go out of fashion thanks to the simple silhouette and versatility — so you’ll be wearing the pair for years to come.

And you can get 10% off all Joyus products over $50, plus free shipping, by entering PEOPLE10 after adding it to your cart (the code works for first-time Joyus shoppers). And be sure to check out more fashion finds and beauty products PEOPLE editors love here.

Our New Favorite Tote Costs $78 -- But Looks Way, Way Pricier

Oct/13/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We repeat: The tote you see in the video below is 78 bucks — even less if you use our exclusive discount code. And you get a whole lotta bag for that amount. It’s a slouchy design made of faux leather (that feels surprisingly buttery and soft) with metallic python-finish panels on the front and back, plus two shoulder straps and a roomy interior. This PEOPLE style editor found the bag while out shopping and immediately got it for herself. Now she’s sharing it with you — and we know you’ll love it and use it as much as she does.

You can shop the metallic totes by clicking on the product image in the video player or by clicking here. And if you’ve never shopped Joyus.com before, enter PEOPLE10 at checkout to get an extra 10% off orders over $50, plus free shipping. (That would make this bag around $70.)

The python finish is something we’re seeing on a lot of celeb-carried bags that are seriously out of our price range. And we especially love it in gold and silver, which adds an even more luxe vibe to the carryall. Another thing we love: how roomy the bag is. It easily fits a laptop or gym gear along with all our other stuff, making it perfect for travel and commuting.

This style editor fell for the bag as soon as she saw it displayed on a shelf and we know it’ll be love at first sight — and first carry — for you guys, too.

Finally! Chic Heels That Are Also Really, Really Comfortable

Sep/15/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We went on a hunt to find heels that are chic and work for the office or nights out, but aren’t insanely uncomfortable. As you can probably imagine, it wasn’t easy. But after trying dozens (and dozens … and dozens) of styles, we finally found a pair that fits all our needs. These stacked heels are comfy enough to wear all day, and cool enough to wear with everything in your closet. And because we love them so much and want you try them, we’re hooking you up with an exclusive 10% discount (see below for the code).

We first gravitated toward these pumps because of the luxe texture, snakeskinlike on the black and a stingray finish on the silver. They’ve got a 3 3/4-inch heel (but stacked so you won’t be wobbling around on them) and a cut that’s flattering and leg-lengthening. The pumps also feature a slightly rounded pointy-toe, which makes them easier to walk in and less toe-pinching than a typical pointy heel. We’ll be wearing ours with skirts, dresses and jeans all fall … and winter … and into spring.

Before you check out, enter PEOPLE10 to get 10% off orders over $50, plus free shipping, of the above the price listed in the video above (it’ll work if you’re a first-time Joyus.com shopper). And be sure to check out more fashion finds we love here.

Introducing: The Waist-Slimming Skirt You'll Wear Every Season

Jul/28/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

There are certain pieces of clothing hanging in our closets that we know we’ll be wearing for years: black blazers, wrap dresses, blue skinny jeans, trench coats and this midi skirt, which is under $90 with our exclusive discount code.

We’re putting the faux leather skirt into the category of “Will Probably Still Be Wearing This in a Decade” because it’s got a really timeless silhouette. It makes the waistline appear trimmer, makes your hips and butt look just the right kind of curvy and looks good on everything from the slimmest to the curviest legs (no wonder it’s a timeless silhouette).

There are plenty of real leather skirts out there, but we’re particularly fond of this faux version because the material is much more breathable, which means we’ve already starting wearing ours — with tanks and sandals — even though it’s the middle of summer. And obviously, we like the price on this midi, significantly lower than a real leather piece. (And even lower if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper since you get an extra 10% off orders over $50, plus free shipping, by entering PEOPLE10 at checkout.)

Order it now and by this winter, the cost-per-wear will be practically nothing.

This Gorgeous Bag Does Something Other Bags Don't

Jul/21/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Well, we could tell you what it does … or we could just show you. Watch the video below to find out why editors are going crazy for this tote (which is actually three bags in one).

Yep, this editor was ready to buy the tote even before she realized it could be flipped inside out to reveal a different color — and that it contained a removable crossbody, perfect for travel or days when you’re not carrying as much stuff.

Once you decide which color(s) to get, be sure to enter PEOPLE10 at checkout to get an extra 10% off orders over $50, plus free shipping (for new Joyus shoppers only).

And shop more stuff we love here!
