No, you don’t have to resemble the Michelin man to stay warm in the dead of winter. Admittedly, it’s hard to look refreshingly spry when you feel overstuffed, but we’re here to tell you: It’s possible to look chic while all bundled up. The key to conquering winter dressing lies with layers—smart layers, that is. There’s no need for a mille, just two or three to help you survive the blistering cold and get you from point A to point B.
For extra insulation, look to cozy knits to wear over (or under!) dresses and button-downs. Got a holiday fete to attend? Integrate an evening jacket into your look to cover up bare arms and nix the chill factor completely. Or, try mixing toasty textiles, like faux fur and leather, to avoid a static, one-dimensional feel. Whether you’re running errands on the weekend or heading to work, we’ve got you covered, literally. See five winter looks that make the most of layers.
Between her many performances and her role as a new mommy, Fergie has quite the busy schedule, but somehow, her hair and makeup is always on point — even when she isn’t in front of the cameras. Her mantra? Never underestimate the power of a good lip gloss.
We caught up with the star at her party for Wet n Wild cosmetics in New York City, where she chatted with InStyle.com about her everyday beauty staples, and her tip to getting glam in five seconds flat. “For me, it’s lips. A little lip gloss goes a long way. To get ready quickly, I usually just throw on my glasses and a lip gloss or lipstick, and I’m out,” said Fergie, who noted that her lipstick of choice was the aptly-named Fergie Daily hue ($4; walgreens.com). “That’s why I named it that! I have different facets of my personality, so when I’m home, my makeup is very minimal, but I always like to kick it up a notch for stage.”
Another trick of the trade? Repurposing your eye shadow primer for an instant dewy glow. “The shimmer primer ($5; walgreens.com) is awesome! If you dot it just on the cheekbones, it adds a little glitter,” she added. “I love dewy looking skin with a matte t-zone, so that’s what I do.”
When news broke that Pantone’s 2014 color of the year is Radiant Orchid, we noticed several stars who were ahead of the curve, having already worn the pretty hue. A dazzling attention-getter, Radiant Orchid permeated the runways during the spring 2014 fashion shows and is now making its way onto the red carpet. We’re sure this enigmatic purple shade will be everywhere next year, from fashion and beauty to home, and we’re pumped for its impending takeover.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite celebrity looks in the color, including Jessica Paré, Kristen Bell, Amy Adams, and Krysten Ritter, to give you a preview of what you can expect to see in 2014. Commit Radiant Orchid to memory—you’re going to be spotting much more of it in the coming months.

Restraint? So 2012, Hal Rubenstein writes in InStyle‘s December issue. No where was this more evident than on the runway, where designers showed off brazen colors, bold graphics, and lots of leather. What’s more, we couldn’t get enough of the drama on TV (hello, Scandal), the big screen (like in Baz Luhrmann’s deco-drenched film, The Great Gatsby), and in our newsfeeds. (The term “twerking” blew up so much it was added to the Oxford Dictionaries Online.) Frankly, we’re surprised we were able to narrow it all down to just 100 moments.
From royal maternity clothes and orange lips to green nails and selfies, see the looks, trends, and pop culture moments that defined 2013. If you don’t want to miss a thing next year, subscribe to InStyle now to keep up with all the fashion, hair, makeup, and style trends you’ll need to know about in 2014.
Gift-giving is stressful enough as it is, but place co-workers on the receiving end, and your anxiety level knows no bounds. What if it’s too personal and inappropriate? Or, coming from the opposite direction, too detached and thoughtless? Work environment also plays a factor—it’s highly probable that a gift at a law firm differs from a gift at a more creative workplace, like say at InStyle.
That’s why we found 15 gifts that address both (a corporate, conservative office and a creative, casual one) to help steer you in the right direction and simultaneously, lessen the stress. Assume the role of gift-whisperer and generously bestow your colleagues with these fab finds.
Designer Marc Jacobs and his director BFF Sofia Coppola have teamed up to create a TV campaign for the designer’s ever-popular “Daisy” fragrance. Coppola, who has long been a muse of Jacobs, just debuted her brand-new short for the perfume, starring model Ondria Hardin running around in a field of—what else—daisies. Evoking the fresh and feminine feeling of “Daisy,” the film matches the playful, bright, and alluring character of the scent. The ethereal cinematography featured in the ad immediately reminded us of Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides, one of her more well-known films (other credits include The Bling Ring, Marie Antoinette, and Lost in Translation). The director has modeled for Marc Jacobs in the past, but surprisingly, this is the first time she’s gone behind the camera for the designer and we’re sure it won’t be the last. Watch Coppola’s “Daisy” clip above, and pick up the fragrance now at marcjacobs.com.
