Fashion Slideshow: Mad About Plaid

The preppy costumes on Gossip Girl may be the reason why plaid is everywhere this Fall. But retailers have taken the pattern well beyond its uniform and hunter roots. This season you’ll find plaid in pastel hues and muted tones. Although plaid flannel is still a staple, designers are also offering plaid in unexpected fabrics like chiffon and taffeta. So check out the slideshow after the jump to learn how you can wear plaid from your shoulders to your toes. Keep reading »

Questionable Guy Trend: The Manscaped Eyebrow

Manscaping isn’t just a trend, it’s a bare necessity. While women have been waxing and plucking their eyebrows for ages, gentlemen are finally catching on and it’s become an eye-opening phenomenon. Salons and barbershops across the country are reporting record numbers of guys getting their brows waxed, tweezed, shaped, and shaved. Even Sephora is offering special products to de-unibrow dudes and even enhance their arch — like Gaultier’s $18 Monsieur Groomer gel. But is too much of a good thing, like manscaping, not a good thing at all? Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Transition Scarves

Scarves are obviously a necessity during winter, when the temperatures drop to unbearable and every inch of skin needs to be covered. But scarves are also big for fall — called “transition” scarves, these are made of thin fabric, often colorful combinations, and are a little on the boho side. Perfect for when the weather is starting to cool, just a touch. Lauren Conrad recently said she loves to add a colorful thin scarf to an otherwise simple outfit to pull it all together. We like that idea too. Keep reading »

Slideshow: Cozy Corduroy

Autumn is my favorite season because, let’s face it, you have more clothing options in the next few months than you do the rest of the year. You can wear more than one layer without perspiring your weight in sweat but you don’t have to bundle up to protect against frostbite. You can wear some of your spring and summer clothes. You can wear some of your winter clothes. And you can start wearing corduroy, aka denim’s more sensitive first cousin and velvet’s more casual brother. Here are 10 items made from corde du roi, or “rope of the king,” as it was known back in the day. Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Crazy Enhancers

The butt bra has been making the rounds all over the Internet lately because it absurdly promises to “enhance the lift, shape and volume of the derriere.” This contraption not only looks extremely uncomfortable to wear, but it also looks as if it would create the reverse of VPL. Instead of panty lines, you’d get VPBM — visibly pronounced butt mounds (I just made that up, but you get the drift), which would look like a totally different entity from the rest of your body. Still this ridiculous product is hardly the first of it’s kind. Throughout the ages, women have been subjected to many a contraption that was either supposed to protect the body or show it off, so we put together an interesting slideshow of some modern day body enhancers. As a bonus, we included one contraption for men. Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Quirky Lingerie

I’m not one to transform into a sex vixen when she dons some Victoria’s Secret bustier. And my last striptease? Like Flashdance on rewind. Give me some granny panties and a sports bra, however, and I’m a star. Here, some picks for ladies who prefer less traditional underthings to the super-sexy stuff. So, throw one on, take your passion, and make it happen.

Fashion Slideshow: Inspired By Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel’s birthday was this week, so we thought it was only fitting to put together a slideshow of fashions inspired by this legend. She revolutionized women’s fashion in the 1920s by appropriating traditionally male fabrics and styles, which helped create women’s sportswear. Although she’s been dead since 1971, her influence continues each fashion season. Check out this biography of the legendary designer. Keep reading »

Slideshow: Stars Of Track And Field

We’ve moved on from ogling swimmers’ bodies to admiring those belonging to the men competing in track and field events. Since it can be difficult to take in their physical beauty in events that last less than 10 seconds, here are 13 medal-winners in all of their Olympic glory. Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Fall Frocks

For the last couple years, the dress has been taking each season by storm. And this fall season is no different. Designers are featuring sweater dresses in a myriad of incantations, making the sweater dress a staple piece to last through winter. Patterns, whether houndstooth, floral, or geometric are also hot for fall, and look for flourishes, like a hoodie or dropwaist, that update classic shapes. Keep reading »

Slideshow: Different Body Types At The Beijing Olympics

Every four years, the Summer Olympics provide us with an inspiring display of physical and mental abilities. The athletes who get to compete are at the top of their games, whether that game is archery, swimming, Taekwondo, weightlifting, or any of the other 34 sports represented in this year’s Beijing Olympics. While we might obsess over models’ and actresses’ bodies in the years between the Games, right now there is absolutely no reason why any of us should be flipping through Vogue and dreaming of having a body like Kate Moss’s or Keira Knightley’s. The women vying for medals are a nice reminder that we don’t have to be tall and thin to be fabulous — heck, Kate could never even dream of winning a medal. Every sport emphasizes a different set of muscles, a different type of body. Even within particular sports, different proportions are represented. Take artistic gymnastics. All-around gold medalist Nastia Liukin is about 5’3″ tall with long limbs, while Shawn Johnson is under 5′ and has more defined muscles. Let all of this be a lesson: Be happy with the booty, legs, back, and abs you’ve got, because the women competing in the Olympics — whether they’re short, tall, petite, big-boned, super muscular, or lithe — are using their bodies to do incredible things, and so should you.
