Style 911: How Do I Pull Off Sparkly Clothing?

I want to buy a few sparkly pieces but I’m not sure how to wear them without looking tacky. Any ideas? — Melanie

Ahh, yes, the age-old “how much shine is too much shine” conundrum. We know it well. A general rule of thumb when wearing sequins and sparkles is to make sure you’re confining the shine to one piece rather than spreading it all up over your outfit. I can’t tell you how many girls we see in sequined dresses, silver shoes, and too much jewelry just begging to be photographed and made fun of. Take the jump for suggestions that’ll keep you looking classy in your sequins, not trashy. Keep reading »

If We Were Louis Bardo Bullock’s Stylists…

We find Sandra Bullock‘s adopted son Louis as adorable as the rest of you, but why, why was the kid wearing that ridiculous beaded necklace on the cover of People? He’s not white, we get that, so does he really need a set of tribal-looking beads to drive home the point? Couldn’t they have thrown a cutesy baby outfit on him and called it a day? No one technically asked for the advice and we’re not applying for the job or anything, but … if we were Louis’ stylists, here’s how we’d advise him to dress. Keep reading »

Hoot, There It Is: Columbia’s Awesome Student-Run Fashion Mag

Several of us on the Frisky staff were newspaper dorks back in college (like this is surprising), so we hold a fondness in our heart for school papers. Oh how the times, they are a changin’: Columbia students just put out the debut issue of a publication called Hoot, a glossy fashion journal that puts our inky campus crime blotter clips to shame. For starters, they’ve got Kelly Bensimon on the cover, which might seem like a weird celeb pick for Ivy Leaguers but, when coupled with the rest of the edgy reporting, shows how inclusive Hoot‘s viewpoint is. Some other goodies: an article about fashion for Orthodox Jewish girls, a profile on North Korean denim line Noko (which we wrote about, as well), and a message from Teen Vogue editor-in-chief Amy Astley. Check out the entire issue on Hoot‘s website.

We just have one question—can we work there, too? [Hoot Magazine via BlackBook] Keep reading »

Inspiration Board: A Nightmare On Elm Street

Honestly, I have no plans to see “A Nightmare on Elm Street” when it’s released April 30 because Freddie Krueger has scared the crap out of me since I was age 8. But that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the murderer for his, uh, style. I mean, he’s wearing stripes and a fedora. I never met stripes I didn’t like and I’ve had an obsession with hats since I was little. Check out the killer — heh, heh — outfit I put together after the jump. Keep reading »

Borba Margo Designs In Cold Blood

For all our beef with violence in fashion ads, we didn’t give much consideration to whether the clothes themselves were actually violent. (A cheery yellow Marc dress? Not unless metaphorical sunshine kills.) Borba Margo’s red paint-splattered accessories will make you look like you just came from the slaughterhouse. [StyleBubble.co.uk] Keep reading »

Put Charles In Charge Of Your Wardrobe

For the hipstertastic dressers out there who came of age in the ’80s, this shirt is for you. With retro stripes and a loose cut, the icing on the cake is a photo of dreamboat (well, maybe) Scott Baio screened onto the chest. OK, so if you don’t love Chachi, you might be appalled by this style. But for those who do, you can place this right next to your “I Love Steve Buscemi” tee (because we know you have one of those, too).
