Because You're Worth It

It's a fact: Chain-strap handbags are no longer reserved for nighttime. Featuring totes, bucket bags and itty-bitty carryalls rendered in a batch of bright colors, the (now) versatile trend is here to stay for 2015.
For the fashion girl who lives in her over-the-knee boots, say hello to the coolest breed of kicks we've come across thus far: the thigh-high boot. Perfectly paired with dresses and denim alike, this must-try trend creates the illusion of longer stems and will keep you extra toasty during winter's chill. Talk about a one-two punch.
Single studs and ear crawlers add interest without going overboard. Sure, we love the drama that big statement earrings bring to the table, but this delicate and wearable trend will go the extra mile—whether dressed up or down.
Classic aviator frames have undergone a subtle revamp for spring. The result: They look fab with every face shape—seriously. If you'd previously passed on the trend before, try again. With so many new styles on the market, you're bound to find a pair you'll wear all year.
The '70s are having a major moment in fashion, so it's no surprise the stacked-platform trend is sticking around in the New Year. Although you can never go wrong with a classic party dress, we recommend sporting these sandals à la 2015 by teaming them with tailored culottes or straight-leg trousers—brilliant.
