Cupcakes and Cashmere's Debut Collection For Club Monaco: All the Scoop!

May/15/2014 at 04:42 PM ET

It’s very rare that a capsule collection is a perfect fit both the aesthetic of the brand and the aesthetic of the fashion tastemaker designing with the brand. But when Emily Schuman (the lifestyle blogger behind Cupcakes and Cashmere) joined forces with Club Monaco, it was a match made in style heaven — and the clothes totally prove it. Do you have your credit cards ready?

“It was an organic collaboration for me,” Schuman told PEOPLE during a visit to our N.Y.C headquarters. “We designed a collection that could transition from day-to-night, weekday-to-weekend.”

Found: The Perfect White Skinnies and the Perfect White Boyfriend Jeans

Apr/07/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

Celebs like Jessica Alba, Naomi Watts and Kim Kardashian love the brand behind the denim in the below video and we’re guessing it’s because their jeans are flattering, smooth everything out, retain their shape (no saggy knees and butt!) and look good on just about every body type. Style editors love these two styles of white jeans for all of those reasons and one more: They’re really affordable. Check them out in action and be sure to use our exclusive discounts — listed below — to get the price down even more and to nab free shipping.

In the past, trying on white jeans has been known to send this particular editor into a downward spiral in the dressing room. But slipping into these two pairs, the boyfriend and the skinny, was a refreshingly positive try-on experience. They’re smoothing and sort of suck everything in, which is just what you want out of a pair of light denim. And they’re not see-through so you don’t have to worry about wearing them with a long top or putting a lot of thought into the color of your underwear.

If you’re a first-time Joyus shopper, be sure to enter PEOPLE10 for an extra 10% off (and you’ll get free shipping, too).

Happy shopping (and happy spring aka the start of white jeans season)!

What Can You Get for $70? Oh, Just This Chic, Cozy Winter Jacket

Jan/13/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

No, that’s not a typo. The jacket in the video below (which comes in cream, black and gray) really does cost 70 bucks with our exclusive discount code (enter STYLE15 at checkout). Check it out and scroll down to read all the reasons we love it.

So, here’s why this Olivaceous topper earned a spot in our closets:

1. It’s actually really warm. We’re used to wallet-friendly jackets being — how do we put this? — totally crappy and inefficient when it comes to protecting us from the elements. We’ve been wearing this one during this particularly bad N.Y.C. winter and we’ve got no complaints.

2. Stains somehow don’t show up on this jacket. Not even on the cream-colored one. Thank the textured bouclé material for that.

3. Two words: universally flattering.

4. You can wear it unzipped and with the collar folded down over a dress at work if you’re chilly and it doesn’t look like you’re all bundled up. But rather, the jacket almost passes for a chunky blazer.

5. Oh, did we mention? The jacket costs 70 bucks. Get one here before it sells out.

Meet the Moto-Sweatshirt (It's a Real Thing and Every Woman Should Own One)

Dec/30/2013 at 06:00 AM ET

Two trends have been everywhere this year: zip-up leather toppers (see: here, here and here) and fancy sweatshirts (see: here, here and every staffer at People StyleWatch on a Friday). Well, those two of-the-moment tops have combined forces to create the moto-sweatshirt — and we might never take it off.

As always, if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper and you enter STYLE15 at checkout, you can get this Blank NYC jacket for 83 bucks.

The story in the video (about this editor spotting a woman on the subway platform wearing this zip-up, running over to her and asking where she got it) is totally true. It was love at first sight — and our obsession hasn’t waned since.

We’re wearing ours with black pencil skirts and tucked-in tees, as well as on the weekends with jeans. And the design fitted enough that you can wear it under a faux fur vest or a warm winter jacket.

If you were lucky enough to be gifted cash over the holidays, we’d highly recommend unloading some of it on this Blank NYC jacket-meets-sweatshirt. You’ll wear it all winter and through this spring. Then when you break out the top again next fall and realize it’s a classic enough style that it’ll never go out of fashion, you’ll be so glad you ordered one.

At Least Sixteen Stars Love This Jacket. Let's Find Out Why.

Nov/27/2013 at 01:30 PM ET

Rebecca Minkoff Becky jacket celebrity fans

There are some items of clothing that become instant classics in Hollywood, popping up on nearly every starlet around. For a while, it was this sweater. Then there was the Christian Louboutin “So Kate” pump. Everyone has a pair of J Brands. And to that list, we can add the Rebecca Minkoff “Becky” blazer, which counts at least 14 stars among its celebrity fans.

The blazer, a perennial staple in Minkoff’s ready-to-wear collections, typically comes in silk in a variety of colors (from black to melon orange to floral print), though occasionally Minkoff offers it in leather or sequin (as seen on Kaley Cuoco, second from right above). Its got a flattering, flowy silhouette that gives a girlie edge to jeans or leather pants and a tougher edge to more feminine outfits. And it’s versatile — it’s lightweight enough for the summer but structured enough for the winter. It’s not hard to see why it’s such a hit with practically every star we’ve got a style crush on.

Fans of the “Becky” include (above, from left) Olivia Palermo, Nikki Reed, Dakota Johnson, Cuoco and Lucy Hale, all of whom have put their own unique spin on the blazer. They join a list that also includes Anna Kendrick, Kristen Stewart, Jessica Alba, Shay Mitchell, Kim Kardashian and many more — though just that sample gives an idea of the diverse styles of the stars who dig this jacket.

Have you tried it on or do you own one of Minkoff’s star-loved blazers? How do you style it? What’s the go to piece in your wardrobe?
