I have a theory: Esquire is on women’s side when it comes to the whole friendzone thing. Meaning, they get it. When a woman decides that she’s not romantically interested in one of her male friends, that’s kind of the bottom line. She’s drawn her boundaries in their relationship and that’s the end of the story. And that’s why they’re giving men terrible, terrible fashion advice to get out of the “friendzone.” Keep reading »
As much as I detest the narcissistic mega-empire that the Kardashian sisters stand for, I can’t help but admire their style. While Kim’s high fashion look is objectively the most chic, I love Kourtney’s feminine and bubbly sartorial tastes — especially her maternity style. I’ve never been pregnant, but for the most part, it looks pretty uncomfortable, so I’m always impressed when ladies like Kourtney manage to dress so damn cute while battling swollen ankles and morning sickness. Kourtney has about a million assistants and as much maternity leave as she can dream of, so it’s not that tough for her, but all you real-life women out there who do the same deserve major cred. Click through for some of Kourtney’s most beaming, cheerful looks from all three of her pregnancies.
Beyoncé will be expanding her entertainment company, Parkwood, to include a new, as-yet-unnamed fashion line in partnership with Topshop, one of Bey’s favorite brands. It’ll be debuting for Fall 2015. Her previous fashion line, House of Dereon, was discontinued in 2012.
The new line isn’t just a celebrity collaboration with Topshop — the CEO of Topshop’s parent company Arcadia, Philip Green, said that it would be “a separate, proper business, with separate overhead and a separate office.” It’s going to be based around athletic wear with a high-fashion bent — which makes sense, since practically half the woman’s life is spent dancing and working out.

If you’re getting bored of scooping up affordable basics from brands like the GAP, Old Navy and American Eagle, check out Joe Fresh. I hadn’t really paid much attention to Joe Fresh until recently, when I saw a sweater I liked in a magazine and then perused their website, impressed with the affordable prices, seemingly well-made construction and stylish twists on basics. Their winter stuff is especially awesome — comfy, perfectly cut sweaters, chic over-the-knee boots, boatneck striped shirts and puffy coats galore! Click on for some of my fave pieces…
In some ways, I have not changed a bit since I was 13 years old. I still listen to Pearl Jam and I still rock the hell out of a flannel shirt. If you were a child of the ’90s, chances are pretty good that your closet was once packed with an array of flannel shirts, a hallmark of the terribly named “grunge” era. But flannels are hardly a relic of the past and you should totally add one to your winter wardrobe. First of all, they are warm and comfy. Secondly, the oversized, shapeless style has been replaced with cuts that flatter your figure, making a well-tailored flannel totally appropriate for all sorts of occasions, from office holiday parties to estate sale shopping. Dammit, I love a flannel, and I think you should love them too. Here are three ways to wear this one from American Eagle Outfitters…
Kim’s relationship with Kanye West ushered in an era of high fashion and inspired Kim to embrace neutrals and looks that are timelessly chic. I’m not going to lie, it’s definitely influenced the way I look at her. I feel like the Kardashians’ goal has always been to make their lifestyle look aspirational to their fans, and while the nouveau riche look she rocked for so long didn’t exactly inspire jealousy, her new style is all kinds of enviable. I still am generally opposed to the Kardashians’ narcissitic money machine, but that doesn’t mean I can’t love their clothes, right? Click through for some of Kim’s finest sartorial moments since becoming a West.
