This Sunday, Sasha Obama wore this ASOS unicorn sweater to a basketball game, and the internet promptly exploded shortly afterward. People rushed to snatch up the sweater, which was on sale for $20, and it sold out almost immediately. For a while, there was talk of the sweater being indefinitely unavailable. TRAGEDY. As it turns out, it will be restocked on December 2! Get your credit cards ready! Follow ASOS’s Twitter for updates on the oh-so-famous sweater. [ASOS via Huffington Post]
Holiday party season has arrived! While I love a fun, short, fancy dress, allow me to suggest going a different route this year. Consider THE JUMPSUIT. No longer for those still wearing diapers, the onesie is a totally party-appropriate alternative to your standard cocktail dress or mini skirt, minus the risk of flashing your panties. And don’t ignore short, romper-style jumpsuits either — just throw on a pair of tight underneath and you’re good to go. Here are 20 reasons to consider the jumpsuit this holiday season…
Oxblood: Just a fancier, more carnivorous way of saying maroon or burgundy. This deep purple-y red hue has been hot for awhile now and shows no sign of disappearing anytime soon, perhaps this is because oxblood is basically a funkier neutral and looks good with almost any other color it’s paired with. Got a thirst for oxblood? Here at 13 pieces I found just for you…
Do you know this actress’s name? It’s not a big deal if you don’t. I didn’t, until I used Google, which is what you do when you don’t know a famous person’s name and you’re going to write about them on the Internet, right? I can tell you who she isn’t, though, and that’s actor Idris Elba. I am absolutely certain of this. Armani’s social media people, on the other hand? Not so much. Keep reading »
For the most part, Elle‘s list of “top fashion trends” for this autumn reads like any other: nautical, punk, pastels, Victorian, and Wednesday Addams are all fairly standard fodder for style inspiration. But one of these things is not like the others, and that thing would be “North Korea Chic,” which creative director Joe Zee is attempting to laud as “the next big thing.” Keep reading »
In case I haven’t made my full skirt obsession already clear, let me reiterate — I am really, really into this vaguely retro shape, especially when styled with unexpected elements, like chambray shirts and statement blouses and wedge boots. If yesterday’s Street Style Inspiration whet your appetite for all thing flouncy and feminine, here are 20 more midi-length full skirts you can really twirl in…
This always happens. Just a few months after I do a major closet clean, in which I donate/sell things I don’t wear anymore, I wake up with the realization that I should have kept my [INSERT ITEM I DIDN'T CARE ABOUT TWO MONTHS AGO BUT WANT NOW]. Such is the case with the full midi skirt I gave away three months ago that I am dying to wear now that full skirts are being spotted everywhere including the street style photos that have been the source of much of my outfit inspirations recently. I love, love, love this trend because I think it works on ALL body types. A full skirt gives everyone a tiny waist, hourglass shape and a feminine vibe that can be styled in an endless variety of ways and can work for all seasons (just add tights!). Here are five street style-inspired ways to rock the full skirt! I guess I’ll be buying another one — and this time I’m holding onto it for dear life.
I know what you’re going to say. “Amelia! It’s winter! Shouldn’t the mini skirts be stocked away for next summer?” That, my dears, is a fallacy. Winter is the perfect time to rock a short, flouncy skirt — you just need to add cold-weather layers, like sweaters, tights and boots, to make them seasonally appropriate. Here, I’ll put my hand on Grace Coddington’s memoir, Grace, and swear that I am not trying to give you frostbitten legs. Now do you believe me? Good! Click on for my picks!

There was once a time where I might have vehemently declared leopard-print to be tacky as hell. And it can be, in the hands of, say, Teresa Giudice.
