Inspired by InStyle: Become a Wrap Star 
“Just two weeks ago I traveled with my boyfriend for a weekend in the country of San Marino, and I bought the US InStyle for the trip, and the piece on how to wear scarves really inspired me! I have a few retro scarfs from my mom, but I’ve never been sure how to use them. I used a colorful one as a bow, which my boyfriend liked, and I combined it with a simple white top and black shorts. Thanks a million for the good ideas!”

Behind-the-Scenes: Banana Republic’s Royal Treatment

"When Banana Republic sent invitations out to preview and shop the new Issa for Banana Republic capsule—as in, Kate Middleton’s Issa—they committed 100% to brand’s British heritage. The exclusive editor preview event wasn’t until evening, but they sent a Mini Cooper bedecked in British flags to my office that morning to start the party early. My driver, Oscar, shuttled me around the city for appointments—a big help in a city like New York—before taking me to BR’s Soho location around 5 p.m. to celebrate the collection before it lands in stores this Thursday. Verdict? Loved it! We have more than a few fans of the Duchess around this office, and I can tell you that the editors’ preview was well-received—and shopped.”

Inspired by InStyle: Jordan Got White Right! 
"After reading the "Get White Right!" story in your July issue, I decided to give the all-white ensemble a try with a soft tee from the Gap, a pair of pants from Old Navy, and some designer kicks by Isabel Marant!"

Behind-the-Scenes: Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!

"Hello from the InStyle fashion closet! When I took a peek inside this week, I found Accessories Editor Thomas Waller and Senior Market Editor Dana Avidan-Cohn prepping rows and rows of shoes for a fashion shoot. Some of our favorites: Dolce & Gabbana’s ruby red jewel-covered lace heels (paging Dorothy!), Sergio Rossi’s embroidered navy and gold peep-toes, and Sophia Webster’s artful metallic pom pom pumps. Gorgeous!”

Caitlin Says: “What better place to pick out a Fourth of July outfit than InStyle's fashion closet? I pulled armfuls of playful patriotic-styled options to get just the right look, and finally narrowed down my picks to this combination here. The Honey Punch red skirt and Wink tank kept me cool in the heat, and the hat and Illesteva sunglasses added extra shade from the sun. It was a hit at the BBQ I attended, and online too — the look got over 9,000 likes on Instagram!”
