Ask The Man Panel: Dystopian Romper Edition

A couple weeks ago we debuted a new feature, "Ask The Man Panel," wherein we solicit guys' opinions on clothing and fashion trends. We kicked things off with a $6,000 Marie Antoinette-inspired shoe, and today we showed them this, um, unique outfit from Alexander Wang, which includes a $600 hooded romper and…

Frisky Rant: WTF, Marie Claire?

This morning Sally McGraw of the blog Already Pretty alerted her Twitter followers to an article about plus-size television stars that was posted on MarieClaire.com yesterday. Her initial response, “Seriously, Marie Claire? SERIOUSLY?” was my exact reaction as soon as I clicked the link and read a few sentences ...

Do Not Want: Tighty-Whitey Gloves

When I think of ways to guard my hands from winter's chill, I recall wool mittens, cozy fireplaces, or glamorous faux fur handwarmers. I don't usually think of sticking my hand in a dude's underwear. And even if I did, I'd probably go for plaid boxers over tighty-whities. But hey, to each her own. ["Handerpants"…

Style Dare: Wear Your Night-Out Makeup Today

I didn't start wearing makeup until I was in college, but nowadays putting it on is one of my favorite hobbies. I like playing with different colors, testing out different brands, piling on dark eyeliner if I'm feeling intense, rosy blush if I'm feeling perky, and forever trying to master the perfect Brigitte Bardot-style…

Dude Looks We Love: Slouchy Beanies

If I may be so bold, I don't think there are many things as sexy as a guy in a slouchy knit cap. Maybe Cate Blanchett's voice. Maybe David Bowie as the Goblin King in "Labyrinth." But that's about it. For example, I had never really given Josh Hartnett a second look until he started…

How Much Do You Influence Your Partner’s Fashion Choices?

When I first met my boyfriend, he favored pristine white Adidas Superstar sneakers, baggy jeans, and Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirts. He kinda dressed like a douchebag, to be honest, but he didn't act like one so I decided to give him a chance. These days he wears beat-up boots, slim-fitting jeans and plaid button-u…

Pre-Ripped Tights: I Don’t Get It

Ripped, shredded clothing -- from leggings to T-shirts -- is definitely in right now. I loved Carrie's DIY holey T, and this weekend, my friend Lindsay showed up at her surprise birthday party wearing ripped magenta tights. When I asked her about it, she said the tights got caught on her bedpost a couple…

Who Was Your First Celebrity Crush?

When I was about 10 years old, I thought Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez from The Sandlot was the perfect man. He was tall, dark, and handsome, sensitive, caring, and athletic. He had these deep brown eyes that my younger self could get lost in for hours. He had life goals (the major leagues) and he…

Moccasins Meant For Showing Off

When the colder seasons come around, we go into heavy hibernation mode, building blanket forts and watching movies and only leaving the house for work, medical emergencies and, if we're feeling really motivated, food. We're not ashamed to admit that we've worn our ratty slippers out in public on more than one occasion. These gorgeou…

Ask The Man Panel: Christian Louboutin’s $6,000 Marie Antoinette Heels

I am endlessly entertained by the divides between men and women when it comes to fashion: the differing opinions on the definition of "expensive," the controversy over red lipstick (is it glamorous or reminiscent of the Joker?), the thousands of times throughout history that women have asked, "Honey, what do you think of this dress?"…
