ESC: Princess Diana
One-shoulder tops, off-the-shoulder tops, chokers, corset belts...even tossing a jacket over your outfit and wearing it on your shoulders were all things Princess Diana wore before they were, well, a thing.
This year, 2017, marks 20 years since the tragic death of the style icon. In memory of Lady Di and her legendary wardrobe, we're reminding you of the many times she wore a, now, current trend before it was, in fact, a trend. Her trendsetting fashion perspective has influenced that of Kate Middleton's and, perhaps, even Meghan Markle's.

Late Registration
It’s been 12 years since Kanye West released his sophomore album, Late Registration, a sleek and hit-filled project that solidified his status as a hip-hop all-star with a brilliant musical mind.
From the soulful “Gold Digger” (featuring Jamie Foxx) to the fanciful horns in “Touch the Sky,” it seemed Yeezy had the Midas touch. Plus, like he did on College Dropout, Mr. West showed off his vulnerabilities on tracks like the Patti LaBelle-assisted “Roses” and the emotionally-charged Mother’s Day anthem, “Hey Mama.”

When it comes to the amount of jeans you own, you've lost count.

How to Create a Celeb-Status Ponytail

ESC: E!ssentials, Beyonce
Your basic ponytail needs an upgrade.
Whether you're in a rush in the morning or you're wearing a bright, patterned dress, some times a ponytail is the answer. Who are we kidding? A ponytail is always the solution. It's classic. It's easy to create. And, if it's good enough for Queen Bey (aka Beyoncé) on the red carpet, then it certainly works for any occasion.
Here's the thing: Throwing your hair in a ponytail won't give your red carpet vibes. The upgraded ponytail requires a bit more attention to detail. However, it won't take you too much longer.

Long Hairstyles You'll Want to Try

ESC: Nicki Minaj, Long Hair Gallery
"Long hair, don't care" is dead, right?
For so long, we've watched beauty lovers overwhelm their bodies with biotin-induced vitamins, deep condition their hair for long periods, lather it with heat protectant, blow dry it, curl or flat iron it, then after hours of prep, take a selfie and caption it, "Long hair, don't care." (* eye roll *) So, now that the saying is outdated, let's talk about how much we love and care for long strands.

Stand Out in a Crowd With This Edgy Topknot

Branded: Tresemme
When it comes to standing out in a crowd, TRESemmé hairstylist Justine Marjan knows a thing or two about it.
"If you're going to be dancing the night away, say, at a concert, an edgy topknot is the perfect, versatile style," explains the pro. For one, it keeps your hair out of your face. The look is also great for all hair types, but it works best on tresses shoulder-length or longer.

How Princess Diana, Kate Middleton & Meghan Markle's Style Compare

Princess Diana, Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle
There's been many a time when Kate Middleton took style cues from Princess Diana. It makes sense that the 35-year-old royal would be inspired by her late mother-in-law's style evolution. There are also plenty of times when the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle arrived to separate events in seemingly similar looks—they might be sisters-in-law one day, after all. What we have here is past, current and prospective royals who have worn similar trends—even decades apart.

Button-Up Shirts That Will Look Different From Everyone Else's

Branded: Button Ups, GIF
If you've bought one button-up shirt, you've bought them all, right? Wrong.
It's true: Most button-up shirts are pretty self-explanatory and traditional in design. There's the crisp Peter Pan collar, the stiff cotton texture and the classic buttons neatly lined up down the front center of the shirt.
But heed this warning: Basic does not have to mean boring. For instance, you can go off-the-shoulder or try one that has a little more volume in the sleeves. From classic flannel to more avant-garde styles, these button-ups will have you feeling like your most original self.

From over-the-knee to ankle booties, metallic to classic black, this fall, invest in a pair of boots that slouch.
