Coachella Fashion - Your Guide to 2013 Styles and Trends

As music enthusiasts everywhere gear up to brave the Inland Empire's heat to see their favorite bands and artists perform, attire is sure to be on the forefront of the minds of many festival-goers. Here are some suggestions for how to dress (and stay fashionable) for the temperamental SoCal weather:

1. Layer it on.

When the sun goes down in the desert, temperatures drop. Be prepared for any weather by layering your wardrobe. Make the practical look chic by mismatching textures, patterns, and colors-the oh-so-boho vibe is sure to turn heads at the concert.

Levi's Authentic Trucker Jacket ($98) is a classic. Its lightweight cotton material makes it perfect for layering. We like it in the light destructed finish paired with a flowy dress or over a plain white t-shirt with a pair of colorful shorts.

2. Don't be afraid of color. Add contrast to the desert hues by throwing a pop of color in your outfit. This season, we like bold-but-beachy colors, like turquoise, coral, and mint.

Levi's Men's 511™ Slim Fit Commuter Shorts in Oil Blue ($64) are the perfect way to brighten up any outfit. The performance stretch fabric is comfortable and water resistant.

You can't go wrong with a Gap T-Shirt. The Women's Colorblock Slub Baseball Version ($22.95)is extra soft and slouchy, perfect for ultimate comfort and style. Pair the fire coral-colored shirt with cutoff denim shorts and comfy boots for a chic casual look.

Add an unexpected pop of color to your outfit with these Marc by Marc Jacobs Retro Aviator Sunglasses in Turquoise ($110). The brown and blue hues pair perfectly with any getup.

3. Maximize comfort.

When picking an outfit, don't forget that you'll be standing for most of the day. Opting for flowy, lose fabrics and flat shoes are great ways to look great while staying cool and comfy.

Gap's Lived In Wash Patch Pocket Shirt ($46.95) looks great, and it won't have you fidgeting. Opt for this comfy and worn-in version of a button-up instead of a slim fit version.

This Flynn Skye for Free People Nautical Stripe Maxi ($168) is perfect for warm days and cool nights. The flowy fabric gives you plenty of room for movement.

Seychelles' Give Your Heart Away Boots ($97.99) are made for walking. The leather and fabric boot will protect your feet, but they're comfy enough to dance in.

Classy N Sassy Creations: Where Pearled Princess Meets Southern Belle

I fell in love with the The One That Got Away Dress ($36) the first moment that I tried it on. It is a very comfortable, yet flattering dress that can be used for any occasion. I love that it is versatile enough to be casual chic, pairing it with sandals and minimal accessories, or you can glam it up with heels and a statement jewelry piece (i.e. cuff or necklace) or an accessory, such as the belt that I opted for in the picture. Either way, this is the one dress that you don't want to get away!

Classy N Sassy Creations offers a vast selection of clothing, home decor that will not disappoint those who like to keep it sassy, yet classy. Other noteworthy picks include the Bold N Beautiful Necklace ($25), Madison Ave Earrings (Mint; $14), Too Hot to Tame Dress ($50), Turquoise Design Maxi ($36), Purely Perfection Pencil Skirt ($23), Classy Chevy Dress ($38), and Take Me Out to a Dancehall Tunic Dress ($40).

Seventeen Launches Delete Digital Drama Campaign to Help Eliminate Cyberbully​ing

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

This month, Seventeen magazine commits to stopping one of the most difficult problems facing teens today: cyberbullying. Seventeen’s Delete Digital Drama multi-platform campaign gives girls the power to eliminate cyberbullying in their lives by simply hitting “delete” when they see a hurtful comment about themselves or anyone else online.

“Cyberbullying can be crushing for teens,” says Ann Shoket, editor-in-chief of Seventeen. “But with powerful partners and such influential stars on our team, we can spread the message that we all need to delete the digital drama.

A casual look meets cool dip-dyed styling in this short-sleeve tee fighting for a cause.

Designer Nanette Lepore is helping to create awareness for the cause through specially designed [delete] t-shirts to be sold exclusively at JCPenney stores and online at JCP.com. Girls who buy the L'Amour Nanette Lepore Delete Digital Drama Tee ($10; Available in Lively Pink or Very Blue) are encouraged to upload a photo of themselves to Instagram with the hashtag #17delete – they have already been joined in standing up to bullying by their favorite celebrities like Ashley Benson, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and Bella Thorne, a STOMP Out Bullying™ Global Ambassador.

All proceeds from the shirt will benefit STOMP Out Bullying™, an organization committed to reducing and preventing bullying, cyberbullying, sexting, and other digital abuse. JCPenney will also be making a $100,000 donation to the organization.

· Stars Kat Graham (The CW's Vampire Diaries), Ariana Grande (Nick's Victorious) and Bridgit Mendler (singer and star of Disney's Good Luck Charlie) have teamed up with Seventeen to further increase awareness for the cause.

· Bridget Mendler also recorded an exclusive music video for the campaign singing her song "Postcard” about being true to yourself, no matter what.

· OPI created an exclusive #17delete nail polish that will be given out in a street-meets-social campaign throughout New York City on March 18.

· Readers can upload the [delete] digital drama badge to their Facebook and Twitter pages to visibly spread the word.
