Alex & Chloe for Forever 21

Forever 21 has teamed with Alex & Chloe for a limited-edition jewelry collection, a first for the fast-fashion chain. The 12-piece capsule collection for ladies and gents was influenced by punk and gothic elements, and includes necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets accented with geometric shapes, spikes, pearls and crystals. It's priced from just $4.80 to $15.80 and you can find it in stores and online now. Observed: The model reminds me of Anya from Project Runway, which kinda makes me think I'm not cool enough to pull off these pieces. But I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more designer collabs like this from Forever 21. Browse more lookbook pics after the jump.

Ask BB: White After Labor Day

Is it okay to wear a white cocktail dress after Labor day? —Amy

Signs point to yes! For some styling inspiration, here are three celebrities that I've spotted wearing white cocktail dresses post Labor Day:

  • Whitney Port's luxe satin blazer and embellished platforms give her cocktail dress a festive, holiday feel.
  • A black blazer and black pumps give Kristin Cavallari's white cocktail dress an instant fall makeover.
  • Leopard booties add edge to Ashley Tisdale's wintery white long-sleeve lace dress.

What do you think, would you wear a white dress after Labor Day or opt for something else?
