It may be over a week now since Hurricane Sandy first hit the East Coast, but the storm's devastating effects are still being felt today. These tragic times, though, have brought forth some beautiful examples of American solidarity, hope, and generosity in response, including but certainly not limited to reactions from the fashion community. Just yesterday, Ralph Lauren donated $2 million to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, citing his love and support for New York as his biggest motivator. Countless retailers are carving out major percentages of their sales and donating them to the American Red Cross, and even jewelry house Langoliers is giving a portion of their most recent auction's final sale to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief fund. In the same vein, there are a number of opportunities for you to help AND get something fashionable in return. We've rounded up for you some of the most stylish goods available that were both designed with Sandy in mind AND are donating sales dollars to the relief effort!

+ Grey Area New York Hurricane Sandy Relief T-Shirts: These Hurricane Sandy Relief tees by Grey Area are ridiculously cool. It's not just because the ombré and dip-dye designs are perfectly on-trend. We also love them because 100% of the profit from the "I Still Love NY" and "Manhattan Blackout" shirts is being donated to Sandy relief programs in our NYC home.

Welp. Little Monsters, we hope you've been saving up some serious dough because several of Lady Gaga's iconic costumes have officially hit Julien's Auction! *high-fives entire world* The four pieces are a part of their Icons and Idols 2012: Rock 'n' Roll collection, which also includes memorabilia from Madonna and Whitney Houston. This means we finally get a chance to grab a piece of Lady Gaga's wardrobe and mix it in with our own, right? Well, not so fast---when we actually peeped the items for sale on the site, we were a bit, um, surprised by the options.

Ellie Goulding performs 'Only You' for ASOS.
via ASOS.

We first tipped you off to ASOS's ridiculously rad holiday campaign a couple of weeks ago when we unveiled the brand's #BestNightEver images with Azealia Banks, Ellie Goulding, and model Charlotte Free. Now that these sparkly, spangly, and downright ADORABLE pics have had some time to properly sink into our fashion subconscious (is that even a thing?), our girl Ellie G. is here to help jumpstart our shopping list, and who's going to argue with that?! The U.K. singer has just released a new music video for the concept campaign, showing off an exclusive cut of her single "Only You." The breezy, electro-pop track is pretty awesome in itself, but get this— from her embellished top to her cracked PU shorts to her wedge ankle boots, it's 100% shoppable! Mhmmm....genius.

The bad news: Halloween has officially come and gone, which means it's time to stash away our creepy, cool, and totally pop culture-relevant costumes for yet another year. But the good news is, there's another reason to dress up just around the corner. Yep, Christmakwanzakah season is coming up fast, and two of our favorite brands are here to make sure we hop on the holiday train early. Urban Outfitters and MinkPink have teamed up on a lust-worthy new campaign, complete with an equally adorable video. So if you're planning on re-wearing that same old dress from Winter Formal, like, YEARS ago, think again. Check out five holiday style lessons we've learned from the new collab, and prepare to get seriously inspired this coming season.

Demi Lovato Topshop

Man, can we just say that we're incredibly happy we get to see Demi Lovato's cute lil' face on a regular basis? Thanks to her solidified spot as a judge The X Factor, we get to watch her beauty game evolve on the small screen (just this week she debuted dark brown locks!) and peep all her cute onstage ensembles. Last night, though, we could NOT get over Demi's super cool, fall-ready frock. She wore an olive green button-up dress with a black studded leather collar paired with brown pumps, and all we could think was, "MUST. HAVE. RIGHT. NOW." We immediately went on an internet manhunt to track it down, and lucky for you (and us!), WE FOUND IT. And it's affordable! *cries in happiness*

A$AP Rocky Official Merchandise

A$AP Rocky officially licensed merchandise is now available at Karmaloop.

Looks like the tour merch stand isn't the only place you can cop authorized A$AP Rocky swag anymore. Karmaloop is now selling limited quantities of officially licensed A$AP Rocky merchandise! The range is full of greyscale graphic tees and tanks emblazoned with classic A$AP Mob imagery and verbage. There are designs with "A$AP ROCKY" spelled out in paisley bandana print block letters, the "Live, Love, A$AP" album art, and Rocky's opening line to the "Wassup" hook — "I be that pretty m***********" — in skinny serif font.

The tees all go for $30, but men's and women's tanks will set you back a little more at $35. Why you have to pay $5 more for a garment made of arguably less fabric, we're not sure, but we'd guess it has something to do with sales metrics and trying to turn some kind of profit on tank tops as we enter the winter season. See the full collection and snag a shirt or two for yourself at Karmaloop.

Justin Bieber

His face may be shrouded in black, but any Belieber worth her salt can tell that mug belongs to the one and only Justin Bieber. This shot comes to us courtesy of Bieber's Instagram and feature the teen pop superstar in what we discern to be a men's tank top covered in kitten faces. The Biebs and his personal style have sent us on shopping hunts before, and a quick Google of our blog proves we have a long-storied love affair with the whiskered wizards known to most simply as "cats." So you KNOW we had to get our hands paws on a cat tank top (or two or fifty) of our own. Walk with us as we show you what we found.

Wrangler denim

Between waxed, ombre, and pretty much every print imaginable, it's official— basic blue jeans are SO over. And while the most recent crazy incarnation of denim may look normal, these new pairs prove that it's what's below the surface that really matters. A slew of labels like Wrangler and LeRock have just rolled out collections of cosmetics-infused denim, which promise to be softer, stronger and more comfy than normal jeans, all while improving your skin. Wait, what?! In scientific terms, this means incorporating nanoparticles of Vitamin E, amino acids, and antioxidents into the fabric. According to WWD of Wrangler's new Spa Therapy collection, "The jeans’ therapeutic finishes have aloe vera or olive extracts to soothe the skin. The company claims that the collection’s jeans contain circulation-boosting and cellulite-reducing elements, and also feature moisturizers and a delicate jasmine fragrance." Is it just us, or do these jeans sound MAGICAL? Unfortunately, that means it's usually too good to be true.

If you own a solid yellow dress/coat/shirtdress/tunic/basically ANYTHING of this variety, you can be the super 'dorbs Morton Salt Girl. It's simple: Slip on the dress (the one shown here is from Modcloth), grab a (preferably) white umbrella (like this ElieBrellas wooden handle one), pick up some Morton Salt from your local grocery store, and BAM! You've got a costume. Extra points if you have white tights and yellow flats to finish the look.

Jay-Z, Grimes, and Odd Future still haven't convinced you that snapbacks have officially returned? Then get ready for some SERIOUS persuasion, courtesy of our girl Iggy Azalea. Between modeling for Henry Holland, hitting magazine covers, and doing her rap thing onstage, the Australian hip-hop star has sometime found time to create some custom snapbacks for online retailer Community54. She tweeted out the news last night, saying "I teamed up with @community54 and made 54 limited edition #azalean snapbacks!" The black, white and purple hats are super exclusive... so exclusive, in fact, that only 54 are up for grabs. So you'd better make moves and snag one for yourself STAT.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
