Maybe there are a few gentleman out there sporting unisex trends like Ugg boots and Longchamps bags but a certain foreign import might be making the next big splash in unisex fashion: Drop-crotch pants. Shops like Zara, H&M and Topshop have already jumped on the drop-crotch pant bandwagon after the trend hit the streets of Europe.
I found that some of my craftier, fashion pioneer friends were making their pants from MC Hammer Pants Simplicity patterns or getting them custom made. Unlike the Hammer pants, the sides on these genie-like thingies don’t billow out but cling instead and taper at the ankles. Despite its clear flaws, it does have benefits like elongating your torso and letting ones package breathe. The jury is still out on whether these will be hipster cool or just plain weird. I don’t know girls, is it time to let your man drop-crotch it like its hot? [$44 Topshop] Keep reading »
Most of us have some body hangup, whether we hate our hair (“Too curly!” “Too straight!”) or bodies (“My boobs are too small!” “My boobs are too big!”). For many Asian women, it’s the lack of an eye crease — some Asians don’t have defined indentations above their eye, which is called a “double eyelid.” The trouble, women claim, is that this “single eyelid” look makes them appear tired or mad.
Eye surgery is a very popular procedure, but now the Japanese have created a product to fix this “problem,” at least temporarily: Koji Technical Eye Tape. The tape can be applied on top of makeup in the morning to create this coveted “deep lid” look. While it sounds wacky, it’s probably not any weirder than other things we do in the name of beauty. And it’s a lot less dramatic than going under the knife. What do you think? [Koji Technical Eye Tape, Amazon] Keep reading »
Whether you’re dancing the night away in Paris, London or New York City, at the end of the night one thing is inevitable besides the dudes clamoring to walk you home: sore feet. Luckily, for us high heel-loving girls there are Rollasoles.
Recently I was lucky enough to be in one such nightclub in London, throbbing feet and all when I realized that the vending machines weren’t selling bottled water, but disposable flat shoes—Brilliant, love! They come in little balls that roll out into ballerina-type slippers, cost ₤5 (about $7) and includes another bag to toss your high heels into for the drunken stumble home. Creator Matt Horan says he’s got orders from Ibiza all the way to New York coming in and hopes his idea will take off. So there you go Cinderella, don’t forget your slippers. [Rollasole]
