On July 26th and 27th TLC will reunite to perform at the VH1 presented Mixtape Festival in Pennsylvania. Lil Mama (who portrays Lisa Lopes in VH1's forthcoming TLC biopic) will reportedly fill in for Left Eye. To commemorate their return to the stage and the release of a fifth studio album, we salute TLC's incredible style over the years.

If the early 1990s were a Pantone confetti explosion courtesy Cross Colours, New Jack Swing, and the like, TLC were the poster chicas: all primary-hued and huge-personality'd, Chilli, Left Eye, and T-Boz came off like your best girlfriends. Their first album, Ooh... on the TLC Tip, dropped in February '92, and set a precedent for what they would bring to the table through the first half of their career.

Dressed in bright oversized shorts and Docs, the cover was painted over in the Afrocentric graffiti animation style that was popular at the time. The video for their first single, "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," opened with one of the most era-definitive scenes ever: Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes draped in bright orange baggy jeans, a floppy green cap, and yellow clown glasses with the call of a hip-hop debutante: "We in the houuuuseeee!" And, scene. ENTER THE AGE OF THE CONDOM AS ACCESSORY.

Rihanna Airport Style

Listen, airport style doesn't always have to mean the dreaded sweatpants and Uggs ensemble. See: Rihanna when she arrived in NYC yesterday. She looked SO. FLY. all bundled up in her winter gear, and as she made her way across the JFK airport, she began to strip off her outfit layer by layer. The crazy part? Every time she revealed a new piece, we loved it even more than the last one! So, let's start at the beginning: Rihanna gets off the plane, and she's wearing an illusion fur vest coat with brown leather sleeves, cuffed distressed jeans, dark sunnies, red lips, and loosely-tied Timberland boots. Then, she started to unbutton her jacket, and—GASP—she begins to reveal that she's wearing a studded denim jacket a.k.a. a CANADIAN TUXEDO underneath it all. Yasss.

Florence Welch 2012 Brit Awards

The 2012 BRIT Awards were definitely all about the ladies! Florence Welch, Rihanna, and Adele all wowed us with their glamorous floor-grazing gowns on the red carpet and continued to drop jaws when they switched up their ensembles for the stage. Florence rocked Alexander McQueen twice in one night (lucky girl!), the first dress being a ruffled, high-neck peach number with bell sleeves and a high-to-low skirt. She also opted for strappy gold McQueen wedges and a very interesting gold hand piece, which added a touch of badassness to her baroque ensemble. When she hit the stage to perform "No Light, No Light," she kept her hair down and wavy and sported a sheer Alexander McQueen gown with gold sequin and pearl overlay. She also layered on some bold cocktail rings and went completely barefoot for her performance. Bold move, Flo!

Winter Boots from Hunter, Loeffler Randall, Ilse Jacobsen, Timberland, and Vivienne Westwood + Melissa to warm your footsies.

With snow already in the forecast up north, we think it's time to find the perfect pair of winter boots before it's too late and our humble landscape has been transformed into a freakish arctic tundra. (This seems to happen every year and we're NEVER prepared.) We've done the whole black rain boot thing and have had more than a number of normal boots destroyed by the elements, so we've hunted high and low all over the vast expanse of the interwebs to find you the cutest boots suitable for the coolest temps and most inhospitable of weather-challenged days. We're talking pretty pairs that you'll want to wear on sunny days too.

We know it's only October, but we're kind of REALLY excited for the holiday season to start thanks to Justin Bieber and his too-cute-for-life Under The Mistletoe holiday album that will be released on Nov. 1.

All we know is, boys everywhere should cop this cute holiday look IMMEDIATELY. Ladies, direct your boyfriends this way, please.
