From the runways to the airwaves (see: Iggy Azalea's Clueless-inspired music video for "Fancy"), '90s nostalgia seems to have hit in full force over the past year and according to our trend forecasters, it doesn't look like it's slowing down. While grungy plaid and Spice Girls-esque platforms still rule every cool-girl's wardrobe, the latest wave of throwback fashion might just be our favorite—the choker. Simple, chic, and flattering on everyone, choker necklaces have been dominating the accessories game this summer and we can't wait to take them into fall. But forget those 25 cent tattoo chokers you got from the vending machines at the mall; these renditions of the '90s staple are anything but #basic.
Watching all of our favorite television celebs at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards might just be the best cure for the Mondays.

From pre-show prepping to red carpet photobombs, click through for the best celebrity snaps of the Emmys.
As much as we enjoy summer, the reasons behind why we enjoy it so much aren’t always so healthy. Time spent on planes, late nights indulging in champagne, powering up with caffeine, and eating out 90% of the time can be extremely taxing on the body. Sometimes it feels like all the hard work put into achieving that summer glow is sabotaged by summer itself! Of course, with the end of summer also comes the start of fashion week season, which is added pressure to get your health back on track. Thankfully, Karina Stewart, doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (and the Founder of Kamalaya, a luxury wellness retreat in Thailand favored by the A-list!), is here to share some tips on how you can nourish your body and get yourself back on the right track!

Leather tops are an amazing staple to have in your closet, especially in-between seasons. You can dress them up or down, but no matter how you style them, they're undeniably chic and classic. Need a little fashion inspiration? Don't be stifled by the looming question, "What do I wear with this?" Here are a few of our favorite ways to shake up your wardrobe and wear a leather shirt.
Overall, we have to admit that the fashion at last night's VMAs left something to be desired. Unlike years past, there were no standout moments that left us picking our jaws off the ground. The usual suspects stunned, while the expectedly controversial ladies had us thinking WTF. J. Lo proved she can still keep up with the Nicki Minajs of the world, Kim Kardshian gave us the typical TMC (too much cleavage) ensemble, and Taylor Swift donned an awkward body suit (trying) to channel her inner Beyonce. Click through to see the good, the bad, and the most WTF fashion from the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards.
