You probably already knew this, but sarongs are way big again, and with their comeback comes innovative ways to tie them. You can still rock the side tie sarong skirt if you want to, BUT you probably won't even wanna be bothered after you're through learning the four new, improved, and all around amazing ways that I'm about to show you in the video below. Go on and click me, you won't regret it.

A good cover-up is just as important as what you're wearing under it. But throwing on a gauzy tunic over your bathing suit is so basic, and wrapping a sarong around your waist is a move that should stay in the 2000s. So since you probably wore your usual cover-up to death over the 3-day weekend, why not try something unexpected next time you head to the beach or chill by the pool? We're talking about items that don't necessarily have "cover-up" in the name, but can double as one. From white linen button downs and wide leg pants, to board shorts and cardigans, these next 11 items will have every chick wondering why they didn't think of wearing them first. Click the slideshow to see all the cool, unique ways you can cover up your bathing suit.

After last night's episode of Mad Men, Don's (multiple) secrets are definitely out, but for those of you who missed it, we'll leave the revealing to your DVR. What we're really interested in is the secret to the sleek ensemble Betty Draper wore during her big confrontation. If you don't remember, because you were distracted by the smoldering look in Jon Hamm's eyes, she had on perfectly cut plaid pants and a crisp, fitted turtleneck. To capture the autumn mood like Betty, choose Elie Tahari's plaid trousers for their feminine fit and trendy cropped cuff; on top, we suggest a merino wool sweater - this one comes in all colors of the J.Crew rainbow.

Itâ€™s usually not a compliment when someone tells you your dress looks like a burlap sack. But if that burlap sack is $2,100 and embroidered with celery satin and beaded embellishments in the style of Lela Rose, you can bet such comments are complimentary. Crafty Texas native Lela Rose aims to create â€œclassic silhouettes with a whimsical twist,â€ and with celebrity stylemakers like Rachel Bilson, the Bush twins, and Eva Longoria eager to snatch up her wares, itâ€™s clear sheâ€™s succeeding. Youâ€™ll find intricate detailing behind Roseâ€™s hefty price tags- think frilly collars, beading, embroidery, and piping. The creative designer isnâ€™t afraid to take style risks on her way to the top: her flamboyant navy beaded and feathered minidress screams for attention. Her regal raw silk peacock evening gown is off the rack but red-carpet ready. Itâ€™s no wonder that high profile fashion risk-takers like Mischa Barton and the Olsen twins are on board with Rose. This underage following begs the question, "When exactly did the under 25 set become style icons snagging the best new designers?" Find Lela Rose at BergdorfGoodman.com.
