Start doing your sit-ups now because the crop top is having its resurgence moment for spring 2012. Everyone from Acne to D&G to Prada showed crop tops on the runway, in all shapes and sizes. (Well, from small to teensy that is.) Which tiny style is your favorite?

The Best Shoes of the Fall 2012 Season
We've scoured the Fall 2012 collections for the most amazing shoes, and it was easy, because there were plenty. The best part? Footwear options for Fall 2012 are a lot more reasonable than their Spring 2012 counterparts. (Remember those 6 inch Versace lucite wedges?) Fall 2012 saw lots of wide heels and mary-janes on the runway, and sometimes both simultaneously--like at Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Marni. Knee-high black boots ruled at Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, Givenchy, and Rick Owens, and ladylike pumps could be found at Lanvin, Nina Ricci, and Jil Sander. Of course, if you're looking for something crazy, look no further than Alexander McQueen's heel-less fur shoes. Impractical, but so lovely. Take a look at all the amazing shoes from Fall 2012 and just try to pick a favorite. It's near impossible.
Street Style Fodder from the Spring 2012 Collections
Every season, we notice a few key designer items that populate street style blogs more consistently than others. They're those must-have, eye-catching pieces that end up on waiting lists because editors and other girls about town snatch them up first (probably on Moda Operandi, long before they hit stores). And then we see them on street style sites on the backs of people like Anna Dello Russo and Carine Roitfeld and Emmanuelle Alt. Lately, it's been Isabel Marant jeans, Celine everything, Miu Miu booties. But what will it be next spring? We've taken another look at the spring 2012 collections to predict what we think will be catching the eyes of Scott, Tommy, Phil et al come February. Or, alternately, here is what we think those of you hoping to end up on a street style site, should wear.
