Fashion Me Fabulous has spotted a Cowboy Boot trend on Polyvore. She's especially loving the short, studded Frye boots and the Golden Goose rumpled boots for the fall. You can give your ensemble a western flavor or go for a rocker-chic take on the cowboy boot. Short or tall, cowboy boots look great with jeans, leggings and dresses alike. Jessica Simpson and Nicole Richie are looking casual and cool in their cowboy boots!

Heart of Fashion spotted a Skinny Belt trend on Polyvore. These little guys can be worn over everything, and we do mean everything! Blazers, cardigans, t-shirts and dresses are among some of the favorites to accessorize. They can be worn above the waist to accentuate the tiniest part of your body and give boxier pieces some cinch or wear them low-slung, right on your hips. You can even wear more than one at a time! In the shots below, both runway model and Jessica Szohr are doing this look right:

Oh, Dali. How on earth can you dress in a way inspired by Salvador Dali? It would be easy to say that throwing random pieces together would make a surrealist outfit, but I put a bit more thought into these looks. While some items don't necessarily "go", they don't fight with the other features of the ensemble either. Salvador Dali's work, while fanciful and chaotic, is always a balanced whole.
The Temptation of Saint Anthony, for example, features long legged horses and elephants carrying buildings being repelled by a cross. It is only fitting that the outfit include a rainbow horse print shirt, layers of crosses, a jeweled elephant clutch and wild high heels. Crazy. Unexpected. Balanced. Salvador meets club kid.
His theme of skulls paired with feminine imagery makes Dali early punk rock. Alexander McQueen uses the same themes in his clothing, making one of his signature skull tees the perfect way to pay homage to Ballerine et Tete de Mort. Add a tutu or two and a rose in the hair to polish off the ballerina side, and slide into serious boots and a healthy dose of black glitter eye shadow to complete your dark girly look.
Other recurring themes in Dali's paintings include melting objects, clocks, tigers, and eyes. I used a bean shaped clutch to mimic melting, but a loose ruffled item would also work. If you're not into watches, much steampunk jewelry is upcycled from clocks and watches.
Rearview spotted a Tie Dye Denim trend on Polyvore. She says, "I love the rocker chic look!! Tie dye jeans look hot with something as simple as a basic tee and ankle booties. Motorcycle jackets look amazing with these, especially when you can see the hardware on them. But you can soften the look up with a blazer (which is what I do.)" Well, Rearview, it looks like Fergie and Rihanna dig your blazer style, too!
cloho deux spotted a Peep Toe Flats trend on Polyvore. She says, "Peep toe shoes really hit fashion headlines in the fifties, mainly in heeled & wedge styles. As flats have had an incredible design overhaul this last decade, peep toe flats are now in fashion, meaning you can show off your great nail colours too!" And as the cooloer months approach, these babies will look great paired with some lace tights. Katy Perry's one of the many who's been seen letting their toes peek through!
Congratulations, KETSKA!! Here's what the Refinery29 team had to say about her winning set:
Unexpected yet totally right for Refinery29, KETSKA's Sydney-inspired look incorporate a few of our favorite items from the shop (we were hoping those flats would show up!) with covetable pieces from the other ends of the e-mall. Casual enough to allow for some serious sightseeing yet chic enough to get snapped up by any streetstyle photographer, this set gets big props from all of us here. Congratulations!
