These Bond-girl biker boots are definitely not for the faint of heart. Christian Louboutin has created a set of studded perfection, but they come with unspoken instructions on how to wear them: You must have confidence in your personal style, and you can’t let them wear you. And that’s not easy to do, when it’s hard to take your eyes off them. For some inspiration, take a look at the way celebs like Jada Pinkett Smith and Lindsay Lohan wear theirs! And while this pair may be sold out, you can snag one just like them below.

N.Y.L.A. “Apollo” Studded Boots

For considerably less, you can wear these boots by N.Y.L.A. and rock the same look. And once you’ve worn them in, they’ll have a vintage-like feel and look amazing with black leggings, tights or grey jeans. You can even style them with a colorful pair like Khloe Kardashian. Just keep accessories simple, and to a minimum. Perhaps add a pair of thin silver hoops or some bangles, and that’s it. Then, balance the outfit visually by wearing a relaxed jacket in a classic silhouette (try a taupe or olive shade) or a structured, military-inspired pea coat if it’s colder outside.

Just consider how a little edge will instantly update the dark palette of colors that most of us turn to around this time of year. And while they may not be a classic style, if part of you ever considered adding some rock and roll glamour to your wardrobe, here is a fantastic opportunity to make a very worthwhile investment.

Brian Atwood designs some of the sexiest heels I’ve ever seen and these “Follow Me” Suede Pumps certainly strike the perfect balance between demure and fierce. The cross straps are like corsets for your ankles, and they look so glamorous paired with a sky-high, modern stiletto heel. I’d wear these with a full skirt or a dress hemmed above the knee and a fitted camisole or sheer blouse. Also try wearing this style with this season’s hottest color combinations such as grey/scarlet or navy blue/camel. Love the BA heels, but they’re not exactly in your budget? Take a look below for an amazing look for less!

ALDO “Gabay” Stiletto Platform Pumps

Very similar to the designer pair above, this version by ALDO is also a fresh new take on the classic black pump. Although they aren’t quite as tall, these are still quite stunning while being much more affordable. You can wear these with skinny jeans and add a cute white sweater or if you’re feeling daring… pair this look with a bold statement necklace or earrings in jewel tones and metallic hardware.

With all the glitzy holiday parties just around the corner, how wonderful would it be to snag this red carpet look from non other than the lovely Charlize Theron? It’s the perfect modern ball gown with its sleek silhouette, deep V-neckline, and its absolutely perfect bow detail at the waist. The dress falls somewhere between goddess and princess and the accessories really pull it all together. The trick to looking polished instead of in costume is choosing the right shoes, bag, jewelry and headwear. Charlize nails this 1920′s style for the 21st century by pairing her stunning gown with minimal nude heels giving off a hint of shimmer, a beautiful antique looking brooch at the waist, and a gorgeous headband that gives a nod to the Gatsby-inspired outfit. Wondering how you can pull this off for your upcoming gala? Take a peek at some of the budget-friendly finds we’ve found below.

It’s usually very easy for me to tell a real deal apart from the steal deal, but in this case I just can’t say who’s been the copycat. Isabel Marant or Fiorentini + Baker? I’m not sure really. But their Jenny and Enola Pull On Suede Boots sure do look like identical twins (well, almost). Design, material, color; even the prices are super close to each other. What do you think? Who’s copied whom here? Let us know and vote for your personal favorite below.

With Halloween coming up soon, we thought it’d be fun to share a few of our favorite costume ideas. If you are anything like us and hate tossing money out on disposable, cheap-looking costumes every year, then consider this idea on how to dress up for the spookiest time of the year: Buy things that will create a theme together, but which can all be worn separately as well. Our first costume inspiration following this idea is “The Stylish Ladybug” – a look that is, in all, just the right amount of costumey without being over-the-top. And once Halloween is over you can keep all of the items in your closet and make them part of your everyday wardrobe as they’re both fashionable and versatile. What do you think? Do you like our ladybug look for Halloween?
