We have to say we're kinda GLAD it's getting colder out so we can mix up our fabrics a little more these days. Luckily, since the '90s fashion comeback is in full swing, velvet is making quite the reappearance. From dresses to pants to shirts, we're seeing the soft stuff everywhere, and we can't get enough. We didddd kinda notice something while scouring the web for our favorite velvet looks, though. Oftentimes black velvet can end up looking really heavy and really, um, goth. LISTEN, we're not anti-goth at all (we wear black basically every day... like every other New Yorker), but this season's trends (maxis, skulls, crosses, dark lipstick) paired with lots of black can look a bit scary. Instead, we picked three takes on velvet that add a little bit of color to your ensemble. Peep the deets below!
Beyoncé on Oct. 24, Oct. 17, and Oct. 20.

You know those days when you wake up and you're all snotty-nosed, disgusting, and unshowered, yet you still have to get it together, go to work, and try to look cute? Well, we have a solution for how to look totally 'dorbs even when you're not feeling so hot. We've been following Beyoncé's street style like a hawk lately (well, honestly, we are kinda always pseudo-stalking her), and she's been rocking THE comfiest yet cutest ensembles as of late. In the past week alone, she has nailed three no-nonsense outfits that we can definitely take a cue from. On Oct. 24, she wore a super tight black tunic (baby bump!) paired with skinny black leggings and platform stiletto pumps. To add some color to her black basics, she threw on a sky blue rain coat, a loosely tied blue patterned scarf, and a touch of pink on her lips. Note her hair is pulled back into a simple pony, and her huge sunglasses make it easy for minimal makeup.
Johnny Depp arriving at the "Late Show With David Letterman" on Oct. 26.

We've all let our manis get out of hand (heh), but it's quite a rare sight to find abandoned nails on the opposite sex. We were SUPER surprised when we spotted Johnny Depp outside the Late Show With David Letterman with a bright blue manicure half undone. The polish is grown-out, chipped, and even completely gone on one finger! Yipes. Luckily, we've got some nail lacquer for Mr. Depp that'll do JUST the trick. And no, this isn't just any ol' nail polish, this is MAN nail polish. That's right—dudes should be able to get their nails did too!

When the temp drops, the first thing we want to do is cozy up in warm furry coat! From black to beige to leopard print, there's no limit to the patterns and textures that fur coats have to offer (especially if they're fake! In fact, we promote faux fur! #savetheanimals). This season fur is HUGE because it instantly glams up any outfit in an instant and adds an extra touch of texture to even the most simple outfit. We handpicked three FAB bloggers from around the globe who sported fur coats in three super cop-worthy ways. Find out more about their looks below!
As Lady Gaga continues to promote her Viva Glam campaign, which donates all proceeds of her products to the MAC AIDS fund (three years and counting!), MAC Cosmetics keeps slowwwllly releasing behind-the-scenes videos from her 2011 photo shoot. The latest clip features Mother Monster getting all dolled up in a VERY Dragon Ball Z sleek beehive platinum 'do with barely there eyebrows and super heavy black cat-eye makeup. While sitting on a couch in RIDIC patent leather lace-up stiletto platforms paired with an exposed zipper sleeveless mock turtleneck two-piece ensemble, Lady Gaga dishes on her Little Monsters, saying, "I love when I see fans with makeup on at the show. They're so good at it, too. I see looks and I think, 'I'm going to steal that from you. I'm gonna do that.'" Aw, who knew that Gaga found beauty inspiration in her fans? ADORBS.

NEWSFLASH: It's getting cold. Not freezing, but slightly chilly—or as we at MTV Style like to call it, "tights weather." And you know what? We couldn't be happier! Tights not only keep your gams warm, but it's another excuse to add more cuteness to your wardrobe. And yeah, yeah, black tights make your legs look long and lean, but sometimes we want to change it up, you know? Patterned tights are where it's at this fall, and we've already fallen in love with so many pairs, we don't know which to snatch up first! Check out some stylish bloggers who rocked the printed tights look in three super cute ways.
Snooki on Sept. 24, and a flip-flop from her collection.

Earlier this summer we got a TEENY sneak peek into Snooki's sandal collection by peeping her super Snookified hot pink sequin flip-flops (yes, the ones with pickles on them), and luckily, friends, those bad boys were just the WEE tip of the iceberg. The Jersey Shore star posted her entire sandal and flip-flop line on Facebook, and whewwww boy! There's a whole lotta goodies in store. While the collection hasn't actually hit stores or online yet, take a peek at all her looks below to see which pair you want to snatch up!
Chains, bows, and animal print? No surprises here! Snooki stocked up on ankle sandals in every color pattern possible—black chain-link gladiators with jaguar print on the inside, brown cheetah ankle cuff thongs, and girly canvas ankle-wrap bow sandals that come in zebra print or green and beige. We could see Snooks sporting these when she's feeling more au naturel and subdued in a work-casual ensemble.

Menswear has been TAKING OVER our lives as of late! We don't know about you guys, but we cannot stop buying button-up blouses and loafers—it's probably because the outfit options are limitless with menswear-inspired ensembles. You can dress them up or dress them down for any occasion, but one of our FAVE (and ballsy!) accessories to pair with any outfit is a bow tie. Large, small, floppy, bright, or subtle—it doesn't matter what kind of bow tie you decide to sport, it's all about how you wear it. We picked three bloggers who ooze so much coolness in their menswear outfits, and BOY, are we jealous!
Vanessa Hudgens a the "Iris" premiere in Hollywood on Sept. 25.

When we spotted Vanessa Hudgens glowing in her sultry yet stylish maxi dress, we knew we had to snap it up right this second! We can't even decide which part we like best—the bold green and beige print, the super plunging neckline, or the stunning silhouette from those butterfly sleeves. Luckily, we found it! For under $200, this beaut can be yours. But because this dress makes such a bold statement, we have a few key pieces of advice before snatching it up—keep it simple! Whether it's your hair, accessories, or makeup, take a huge cue from V-Hudge, who pulled back her waves into an effortless updo and painted her nails an au naturel soft beige color. For makeup, she stuck with her smoky eye staple and added a touch of bronzer and glossy lips. Her only jewelry is a long silver medallion necklace and tons of silver statement rings, which add an extra bit of boho flair to her look. But LADIES, be advised—a plunging neck that low can be dangerous. If you want to wear this to work, throw a tank on underneath so there are no accidents! (Sorry, we don't trust safety pins.)
Elle Fanning, Alexa Chung, and Dianna Agron at The Alexa Chung For Madewell Fall 2011 Collection launch on Sept. 21.
Remember when Alexa Chung modeled her Fall 2011 Madewell collection and we were all, "Awww, she looks ADORABLE! We want EVERYTHING when it comes out." Well, apparently a lot of other people felt the same way. When her collection hit the Madewell.com website yesterday, it crashed due to the high demand. While we're not surprised that people are clamoring for Alexa Chung's self-designed duds, today it seems that her items are ALREADY hitting eBay selling at double the retail price. Yowza! Luckily, we found some of our most beloved Madewell pieces (worn by some of our fave celebs!) that are all still available to purchase online. But HURRY!!! Seriously guys, this stuff won't last long.
