Happy Thursday, students! It’s time for an advanced lesson in print mixing, brought to you by professional do-nothing Olivia Palermo. I was so inspired by Olivia’s daring decision to combine three prints in one outfit that I just had to do a little Fashion Math of my own. Here are six ways to wear stripes, checks/plaids and polka dots — at the same time…
I’m sad. After years of depending on J. Crew’s Capri flip-flop as my go-to summer sandal, the company went and broke what was already perfect by pushing out a new version with slightly thicker straps and this weird supportive thingy on the heel. The difference between the old and new versions is marginal but noticeable and just decidedly not the same. As a creature of habit, this is upsetting. Don’t fuck with my summer shoe game, J. Crew! I guess this means I’m in the market for a new summer sandal, but where to start? I know! With absurdly expensive designer pairs and their affordable alternatives!
I’d have to get creative to figure out where I would actually wear these socks, but that’s no matter.

I recently bought a slouchy chambray jumpsuit and I have been living in it ever since. Its lightweight fabric makes it perfect for summer and I’m convinced it’s not just for lazy days — it can be dressed up for a hot date and styled to be appropriate for work. To show just how versatile this piece can be — and why you should add one to your wardrobe — here are three ways to a chambray jumpsuit.
When photographer Joel Meyerowitz delved into his work in the ’60s and ’70s, he aimed to capture everyday life in New York City, but he also just happened to record some amazing street style that has my little vintage-loving heart doing backflips. The New Yorkers in his images wear trends that have since gone out of style and come all the way back around to cool again, and they look totally chic while doing so.
