When we see the words "Beyoncé" and "collaboration" in the same sentence our hearts start racing a little. So when news broke that the Queen Bey is launching a line of athletic sportswear with Topshop we may have literally jumped for joy (then we immediately went out and renewed our gym membership). More than your average celeb designed capsule collection, Beyoncé and Topshop will  actually be 50/50 partners of the athletic brand, called Parkwood Topshop Athletic Ltd. The new brand will include apparel, footwear, and accessories for dance and fitness,  and will be sold at Topshop and "This not a collaboration. This is about building a brand and building a business — a separate, proper business, with separate overhead and a separate office," said Topshop owner Sir Philip Green in an interview with WWD. "I could not think of a better partner," Beyoncé added. And since we hear the line is so stylish it can be worn as regular clothes, we're already making room in our closets for the launch of Parkwood Topshop next fall.


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

An affordable line of jewelry and bags from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen is here! The twins behind The Row, Olsenboye, and Elizabeth and James have designed a special collection of jewelry and clutches for StyleMint called AMK x SM. "We drew inspiration from constellations," said Ashley of the line, which includes lariat necklaces, chokers, hand chains, and ear cuffs, as well as clutches in two different shapes. She went on to explain how versatile the pieces are and how easily they can transition from day to night. "We focused on minimalist designs that can be mixed, matched and layered, yet are strong enough to wear on their own," added Mary-Kate. None of the pieces cost more than $39.99 and all of them are available now on StyleMint.


Chris Benz

You may not be too familiar with the Bill Blass label, which had its heyday in the '80s, but that may change soon because New York-based designer Chris Benz has just been brought in as the new creative director, and his plan is to reinvent the brand to attract a new generation of buyers (that means you). The fashion house has struggled to keep a designer and maintain its customer base since Bill Blass retired in 1999, and hasn't shown a ready-to-wear collection since Fall 2012. With Benz now onboard, Bill Blass will officially relaunch as a brand in the spring of 2016. "The whole idea was to bring in an American designer who understands the woman today and who is highly social just as Mr. Blass was," Bill Blass President Stuart M. Goldblatt told Women's Wear Daily. Benz, who hasn't shown a collection for his eponymous line in a few seasons, is nothing if not highly social, taking to Twitter to announce his new role. We're looking forward to seeing what the new creative director brings to the house of Bill Blass.

Michael Jackson Thriller LP

As far as music videos go, Michael Jackson's "Thriller" is among the best of all time--the song, the dancing, the costumes (seriously, YouTube it if you've never seen it because the costume design is beyond)!  Since we're kind of obsessed with the video, and Halloween is this Friday, we thought it would be fun to pick up the Michael Jackson Thriller LP. It's a special 25th anniversary edition and features an excerpt from Vincent Price (it's his super creepy voice you hear narrating the video). We're thinking it'll be the perfect addition to our Halloween bash.

Oscar de la Renta

It's been one week since renowned fashion designer Oscar de la Renta passed away at the age of eighty-two, after a long battle with cancer. Since then there has been an outpouring of love and tributes from industry insiders and tastemakers including Sarah Jessica Parker, supermodels Naomi Campbell and Karlie Kloss, and of course, Anna Wintour. The late designer, whose career spanned over five decades, will be remembered in the place he called home, New York City, at a private mass on November 3. The funeral will take place at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola at Park Avenue and 84th Street, and will no doubt be a beautiful celebration of a wonderful life.


Iggy Azalea

If ever there was a rising star, rapper Iggy Azalea is it, and it was just a matter of time before she landed a national ad campaign. The "Fancy" singer was picked by fast fashion retailer Forever 21 to star in their holiday campaign. "Iggy operates in what’s comfortable for her, she doesn’t want to feel too forced or like she’s trying," Azalea's stylist James Knox said in an interview with Who What Wear. "It’s an effortless style sensibility she has. She’s just being Iggy at all times, not really turning up for the cameras." Look for the Forever 21 holiday ad campaign featuring Azalea and her long-time boyfriend, Lakers star Nick Young, now.


MAC x Nasty Gal

MAC Cosmetics has collaborated with more It girls than we can count, and now the makeup brand has partnered with girl, or rather #girlboss-of-the-moment, Sophia Amoruso. The Nasty Gal founder worked with MAC to create a four-piece capsule collection that features three lipsticks--two red and one dark purple--and one red nail polish. "MAC and Nasty Gal are both young, colorful brands that complement one another,” said Amoruso. “It was a fun and effortless collaboration to create." The MAC x Nasty Gal lipsticks will retail for $16 each, with the nail polish selling for $12. Look for the capsule collection when it launches online and in select stores on December 4.


Anna kendrick

The weather may not be frightful, and the halls not decked, but ready or not the holiday season is here! Already many of our favorite labels have shot their holiday ads, including Kate Spade New York, with actress Anna Kendrick as the face of the campaign. The Old Hollywood-themed spread was shot at several different locations in Las Vegas by famed photographer Cedric Buchet. "Anna embodies the Kate Spade New York spirit in so many ways,” Deborah Lloyd, President and Chief Creative Officer said of the actress. “She is beautiful, smart, hilarious and wildly talented." Since Kate Spade New York is known for its playful, feminine, and downright pretty ad campaigns, we think this is a perfect pairing.

Le Labo

Estée Lauder has already purchased a number of our favorite beauty brands, including MAC Cosmetics, Jo Malone, Tom Ford, and most recently, Smashbox. Now the industry behemoth is acquiring Le Labo, one of our favorite perfume companies (its inventive and utterly gorgeous fragrances are layerable, and it has the most lovely apothecary-inspired labels). Le Labo, which already has stores in New York, London, Paris, San Francisco, Tokyo, and Hong Kong, already has sales of up to $30 million annually, but backing from a well-known giant like Estée Lauder will certainly give the company an even more significant presence in international beauty. And as Estée Lauder CEO Fabrizio Freda said in a statement, Le Labo is the "perfect complement" to its current line-up of beauty brands. The deal is likely to close next month.


& Other Stories

& Other Stories, H&M's younger sister, has finally hit the States! The women's lifestyle brand, which rolled out seven stores across Europe in just two months, has opened up a flagship store Soho, New York. The 6,400-square foot space is divided into four ateliers, each inspired by four different metropolitan cities--Paris, Stockholm, Berlin, and of course, New York. While the four collections aren't labeled shoppers will know which city is represented by the goods in each atelier: Paris has romantic, feminine pieces like beaded dresses and fringy chokers; the Stockholm collection is minimal and tailored; Berlin is full of tweeds; and New York is sophisticated with an edge. Animal prints tie each of the themed collections together. "It’s an interesting print to play with because you can do it in a really hipster-y kind of way, or you can do it in a crazy Italian way. You can do it in a French way, or you can do it in a New York way," said the store's ready-to-wear designer Behnaz Aram. But don't worry if you can't make it to New York to check out the store's cool layout or shop the city chic collections; & Other Stories also launched a US e-shop.

Cache Jet and Crystal Tassel Necklace

As far as we're concerned, one can never have enough jewelry (as evidenced by all the cool pieces we've featured on this site), so we're happily adding this Jet and Crystal Tassel Necklace from Cache to our collection. It's sleek and chic, with an art deco vibe that we simply adore. Best of all, it's incredibly versatile--we can wear it with anywhere and for any occasion. We're thinking it'll go great with an oversized sweater and pleated midi skirt for a date, then jeans and our favorite band tee for a movie with friends.

Homcoming dresses

Besides having a blast with your friends and dancing with your date, what’s the most important part of homecoming? The dress, of course! But homecoming isn’t the only occasion we’re looking forward to this season, and we know you’re already planning all of your outfits.Whether you’re going to homecoming with your beau or a holiday party with your best friends, you need to look fabulous. With so many choices (Cocktail dress or gown? Fitted or flowing? Lace or chiffon? LBD or a sensational print?) the possibilities can seem endless.  We already covered some tips on how to choose the perfect dress, but here are some styles we love for any end of the year occasion you have on your calendar.

The Essential LBD, Bedazzled
This LBD is seriously perfect for any occasion. Homecoming, cotillion, winter semi-formal, holiday RSVPs, you name it – this dress is your new go-to. The sequins are sure to catch the eye of that cutie you’ve been crushing on when you step onto the dance floor at homecoming, but the sleeves and high neckline keep it classy so you can wear it to a holiday party with Grandma.

The Drama
This stunning one-shoulder dress has just enough drama to be sophisticated and sexy. The cascading layer will draw attention to your sweet dance moves, while the crystals add a subtle sparkle. Already have a dress for homecoming? Wear it to a winter Semi-Formal or a holiday gift exchange party.

Luxe Lace
This dress would be the perfect New Year’s outfit to pop bottles (sparkling cider, of course), dance with your friends, and even move in for that midnight kiss. The delicate lace, metallic blue, and mesh detail give this dress a sexy, sassy edge. Can’t wait 'til New Year’s to debut this dress? Wear it to a Halloween party and go as your favorite female singer or celebrity.

Emerald Glamour
If you need a longer dress for a cotillion or family function (or just love how a side slit makes your legs look), this beaded emerald gown needs to find a home in your closet immediately. The jeweled neckline complements the deep emerald tone and adds a dash of glamour. Pair it with a shiny clutch and some chandelier drop earrings to complete the look.

So what are you waiting for? Make the dress of your dreams a reality! Grab your friends and head over to a Caché store, or hop on CACHE.COM and shop our entire dress collection. When you say yes to the dress (or dresses!), have a fashion show with the girls. Everyone can try out different jewelry and makeup to go with each outfit, and before you know it you’ll be all set, all season. Take a ton of pics and post them on Twitter or Instagram. And don’t forget to tag us @cachestyle or #cachestyle.

Romwe Army Green Jacket

Fall weather is nonexistent in L.A.; we're still wearing sandals and short sleeves around here. And while we are hopeful that we'll be pulling out our coats and scarves soon, we're being realistic about things and picking up lightweight jackets and vests, like this Army Green Jacket. It's light enough to wear now, and thin enough to layer under a bigger coat when things finally start to cool off. And while the army green color is so on trend, we can flip it inside out and wear the printed side, which is just as fabulous.
