While lipstick stains on martini glasses and sparkling heels on stockinged feet are always fun. sometimes a girl just wants to stay in with her friends. Make everyone bring a favorite DVD from their collection, pick up a fancy six-pack, and get ready for some serious one-on-one time with that ricotta cheese pizza. And while most would think to arrive in sweatpants for this occasion, not your group of friends. Oh no, you don't miss a chance to play. Instead, choose a poppy vintage red coat as your starting point, and devise a feminine ensemble inspired by it's sweetness. Go for a full, pleated skirt that's paired with a pussybow blouse and classic bluchers, and then add a touch of quirk with a cat beret and a fish-shaped clutch. Can't wait to see what your pals wore!

Tired of seeing nothing but ugly Christmas sweaters and sequined 80's dresses at thrift stores? Break out of the rut and go to an estate sale this weekend, poking around enviable collections of mid-century furniture and racks of furs with matching pillbox hats. While you pretend you're on the set of a 50's black and white movie, play the part with a vintage inspired outfit. Opt for a demure sweater dress and play up its Doris Day vibe by pairing it with a simple, clean wool coat and a playful fox stole. Add some interest to the look by adding in a touch of fur in the form of a small clutch, and throw in a pompom baseball hat to give it a slightly sporty twist.

Have you been itching to sweep your hair up into a wispy bun and spend a quiet day admiring and thinking on wooden museum benches? Revisit favorite paintings like old friends and fall in love with the brushstrokes of new ones, wondering just how an artist can capture light like that. While doing so, don't blend in with the rest of the crowd with their winter puffer jackets or zip up hoodies. Instead, go for sleek and understated, choosing a geometric wool skirt as your starting point. To underline its clean lines and minimal look, pair it with sharp accessories, like suede boots and a structured clutch with a touch of hardware. Keep with the urban feel by pairing it with a leather jacket and add some interest by choosing a bejeweled sweatshirt and a neon beanie. Both pieces will keep the look casual and unfussy, but will add a touch of playfulness.

You've been trying your hardest not to admit you've been waiting for tonight all week, but face it sister, you have. You've got a special night planned with your new gentlemen caller at that one restaurant that keeps its lights a bit too low and their booths a bit too intimate, and you have all sorts of plans to get him smitten. Which would be easy, if it weren't for one thing. It's freezing outside. Don't opt to get pneumonia for the sake of a cute outfit- you can dress warm and stunning all at once.

Pair the skirt with a chambray and then layer a dark plaid on top, letting the cuffs and collar of the denim poke out from underneath, creating interest and warmth. Add some glamour to the look by pairing it with a crystal necklace and a leopard clutch, but then balance it out for the biting cold with sheerling lined booties and a trapper hat. You look stunning dahling, stunning.
