  With a new season upon us, it's time to add some new staples to your wardrobe.

Decide where to donate your clothing before you start, it will make it easier

STYLE REPORT: ISABEL MARANT X H&M (PARTIAL) LOOKBOOK

    To say that we were excited when we heard H&M's next designer collaboration was going to be with Isabel Marant would be an understatement.

The luxe bohemian babe meets downtown Paris chic that Marant is known for is captured seamlessly with the cropped embellished boucle jacket, fringe low-heeled booties, and laced up faux leather skinnies, just to name a few.

GET THE LOOK: STYLE ICON EYEWEAR

The right pair of shades can add an immense sense of glamour, mystery, and intrigue to a celebrity, and there are certain fashion icons that are definitely  known for their eyewear. You will never see Anna Wintour at a runway show without her signature rectangle frames, it wouldn't have been the early 2000's without the huge butterfly shades Paris Hilton made famous, and we can't even imagine Breakfast at Tiffany's without the classic cat-eye sunglasses Audrey Hepburn wore. Try a modern take

TREND SPOTTING: CUT-OUT BOOTIE

  The bootie, or low ankle boot, is a must have shoe for fall. They somehow look amazing with almost anything and are a sure fire way to help transition the more summer-y skirts and dresses to cooler temps. There's a huge variety of bootie trends out there, but one of our favorites that we've seen emerging this season is the cut-out.

STYLE REPORT: GOOGLE GLASS AT NYFW

Marie Claire creative director and Project Runway judge Nina Garcia wore Google's latest product, Google Glass to New York Fashion Week Spring 2014. While wearing Google's latest tech gadget, which is set to launch next year, may be trendy in Silicon Valley, this kind of expensive eye-wear is definitely not what the world of high fashion is used to.  However, we can see why wearable technology would be a fashion editor or blogger's dream during the hectic days of back to back shows and presentations
