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 80 bucks 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 15% off by entering STYLE15 at checkout.)

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

Crop tops have been the trend of 2014 (sorry, overalls) and we’re starting to notice that stars are gravitating towards one version of the style more than any other. Fitted, belly-baring tops paired with perfectly-matched circle skirts have been seen on everyone from Reese Witherspoon to Suki Waterhouse to Taylor Swift (it’s her favorite look right now) and we’re checking out three styles that we saw within the past 24 hours, from sweet to spicy, to evaluate.

October PEOPLE StyleWatchMirrorpix/Splash News Online

The topic of wearing socks with sandals is one that we’ve been hotly contesting since Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen did it (and since the advent of “normcore”). Now we’re officially putting it to a vote with this shot of British TV personality Fearne Cotton. You’ll often see her wearing wacky outfits and she certainly is never one to shy away from a trend; in this case, she accessorized her footwear with an oversize coat and distressed denim.

There are multiple variations of this combo, from flat hippie-ish sandals to platform stacked heels (and the socks can vary too) — and we’ve seen this look everywhere from the most high-fashion runway to your wackiest uncle, but will we see it on you? Weigh in and let us know what you think of the fashion-forward trend. Are you loving it? Or are you hating it? Vote now and get the results in our October issue!

Curvy Girl Chic's Allison Teng Gives Her Tips for Wearing a Crop Top

Jun/16/2014 at 10:30 AM ET

A few weeks ago, I posted about a crop top outfit I’d put together. The top was what I like to call a “gateway crop top.” It was a little bit looser, longer and it had sleeves — a great way to ease yourself into the trend. This time, I wanted to take things one step further and show plus size girls that they can go all out with the look, too!

Olivia Wilde: 'Jason's Sneaker Collection Makes Up a Wall in Our Apartment'

When new mom Olivia Wilde invites people to her house, she says they automatically expect her to be a fashionista.

“Guests always expect me to have too many shoes,” Wilde tells July’s O magazine. But it’s actually her fiancé Jason Sudeikis who has a love affair with footwear. “He’s a sneakerhead with about 200 pairs of Air Jordans. They make up an extraordinarily colorful wall in our apartment.”

Wilde’s other unexpected fashion secret? For all her time spent on the red carpet, you won’t find numerous fancy frocks in her closet. Instead, she’s got an “assortment” of blazers that “rivals Rachel Maddow’s.”

“If you were to peek inside my closet, you’d think I was a newscaster or a politician — I have dozens of blazers,” she says. “I always buy them, thinking they’ll pull together an outfit, but then never wear them.”

The star is no stranger to rocking a jacket on the red carpet. Last month, just 10 days after giving birth to baby Otis, Wilde chose one of the many blazers from her arsenal and wore it alongside Sudeikis at the Ms. Foundation Women of Vision gala.

For more on Wilde’s style, pick up the July issue of O magazine. And tell us: Are you surprised that the star stockpiles blazers?
