If you missed out on the Phillip Lim for Target collaboration this month (or you saw the lines and ran the other way) here’s a new partnership to get excited about.

Yesterday, T.J.Maxx invited some New York fashion editors to discover their style personas with the help of clinical psychologist and closetologist (um, hello, coolest job ever!) Dr. Baumgartner and celebrity stylist, Nicole Chavez.
Dr. Baumgartner used her ten years of experience as a psychologist and wardrobe consultant to develop six distinct style personas based on how women organize their closets, how they put outfits together, and how they shop.
After taking a short quiz, we were given our results (I’m a Trend Trailblazer!) and shown to our ideal closets. Mine was spot on! Dr. Baumgartner also used her expertise to decode celebrity stylist, Nicole Chavez’s look–she’s a Show-Stopper–no surprise there!
Now, TJMaxx is giving all of you the chance to discover your style personas! Take the quiz here and take a look at the closets below. Then, head to TJMaxx to find your favorite looks.

We love a good moto jacket around here and luck for us, they’re a hit for fall/winter this year. Our favorite styles are tailored and a little tough with eye-catching details. Whether you prefer vegan leather (like the one above) or the real deal, there are infinite ways to style your new topper. We love the contrast in this look. The ladylike accessories and full skirt keep things feminine and allow the edgy jacket to shine.

Hey, rule breakers, what if we told you you can make your favorite white (or any light color!) pants fall and winter appropriate? Happy? We thought so! The key is to go cozy and seasonal with your other items–think chunky sweaters, jewel tones, and scarves. The contrast of the light pant with darker extras makes a big impact even though you’re really working with basic pieces. Plus, wearing your white or light bottoms into the chillier months means giving your wardrobe a major extension.

We’re long-time fans of the dress rental site, Rent the Runway. Its gorgeous, designer dresses and baubles can be rented for a fraction of their retail cost and the vast selection–along with with the RTR team’s expert styling advice–has rescued us from the nothing-to-wear-blues quite a few times. Now, the brand is making us even more enthusiastic in our fangirl-dom by adding plus sizes to their selection. The new crop of dresses will come in sizes 14-22 and will include designs by Carmen Marc Valvo, Badgely Mischka, Theia, and more. The styles are available starting today! Check out five of our favorite from RTR Plus below:

Fashion week (really it’s fashion month) is in full swing here in NYC and while there are always plenty of wild outfits at the tents in Lincoln Center, we think sometimes it’s the simple looks that are the chicest of them all. Take, for example, this outfit full of gorgeous, well-made basics–topped with a luxe, leopard-print coat. Statement outerwear is a key trend for fall and since leopard-print is always in, it’s a great version to invest in.
