M.A.S.T.E.R. Monday

Good morning, fashionistas! Sorry about all of the random disappearances, but Fashion Inc. is now back on track and alive and well! Today is once again M.A.S.T.E.R. Monday, and for all of you who don't know, that stands for Making Awesome Style Truly Easy And Realistic. We give you a fashion set from Polyvore.com and we match it with a contemporary or classic fashion personality for you to use as a style template. If you can't find the items exactly as they are in the sets, then try to similar items at lower prices.

As always, ladies first, so today girls Fashion Inc. is showcasing none other than Miss Olivia Palermo from the MTV series The City. Olivia Palermo's fashion personality exudes an unmistakeable air of confidence as well as classic New York glamour. Whether she's hosting an elegant New York Upper East Side dinner party, or just going for a bit of retail therapy at Barney's, Olivia remains remarkably stylish and glamourous. So if you looking to find out how to become awesome fashion journalist at Elle Magazine by day and sophisticated socialite by night, then you'll definitely want to take a look at these sets to find out how!

And as always, we didn't forget about our dashing gentlemen out there. Today's fashion icon is Chace Crawford. Chace Crawford's casual yet refined style would be right at home in the closets of many men. His effortless boy-next-door charm meshes extremely well with his high-leveled Gossip Girl persona Nate Archibald. Crawford is very at home with slick suits but manages to wear the suit and not let it wear him--a difficult task. Boys, if you're looking to upgrade your wardrobe to add a little more sophisticated flair, but aren't ready to commit to a 3-piece Armani suit, then add a little of Chace's techniques to give yourself that edge without feeling constrained. Check it out.
