Your old, worn-out running shorts are simply unacceptable for a post-work run on the treadmill, because heading to the gym isn’t just about sweating off those extra calories you drank this weekend. No, it’s about being seen by your fellow gym-goers. Nike realized that some people need to look fashion-forward while exercising, so the sports brand is launching their first fashion-inspired collection, Nike 6.0. Come July, you’ll be able to buy cute clothes and shoes for working out (or wearing around town on the weekend) at pretty reasonable prices; the pieces range from $24 to $120. Here’s the even better news: Sure, you’ll look cuter than you would in an old T-shirt with pit stains, but the gear’s also totally functional since surfers Carissa Moore and Monyca Byrne-Wickey and snowboarder Ellery Hollingsworth gave Nike input during the line’s development stage. I’m especially loving the worn-in blue sweatshirt that comes with a little zipper pocket, which is perfect for your iPod. Check it out after the jump! [WWD] Keep reading »
Since everyone’s a little obsessed with the jeggings trend, Cosabella decided to get in on the action. It’s a little strange that a company known for its lingerie wants to get into the skintight denim business, but everyone seems to want a piece of the jegging pie. The first line of Cosabella Jeans will debut May 15 with two style options: seamless leggings and a pair with a washed denim treatment. And because denim, black, and white aren’t enough options when it comes to $61 to $75 jeggings, Cosabella is planning to create an entire line of pant-inspired leggings, including a khaki look. We’re not so sure kheggings will take off. [WWD] Keep reading »
For her blog, Poison Dart, model Imogen Clarke surveyed a bunch of her catwalking peers about what they wanted to be when they grew up. Unsurprisingly, a few wanted to be princesses. Beyond that, though, the responses were amusing and surprising. Ali Michael, for one, liked the idea of being a surgeon because she “loved blood and guts.” And Hanne Gaby Odiele was convinced that she would be “a psychologist who lived on a farm and was also involved in politics. And have a big tree house in the garden.” Least expected of all though were Eniko Mihalik (pictured) and Toni Garrn, both of whom wanted to be cashiers. Modeling doesn’t last forever, so I guess there’s still time to achieve those cashier dreams? [Poison Dart] Keep reading »
If you’re going to hop on the romper bandwagon, then why not go all-out and invest in a classy all-around piece? A good choice would be this black Rag & Bone romper (LBR, anyone?) designed in collaboration with model Jessica Stam. While we love how this design could totally function as evening wear, we’re more into the fact that it’s body-flattering—a drawstring waist allows you to cinch and poof in all the right places.
There are certain clichéd things women can do to tell the world, “I’m single and ready to mingle.” Most involve drastic hair changes and boob-spillage dresses. Of course, there’s also the classic Facebook relationship status change, which can often draw more attention than anything else. A decent middle ground? Anya Hindmarch‘s cute tactic: wear the designer’s everyday tote emblazoned on one side with the word “Available.” Of course, the other side reads “Unavailable” should things in your love life change. Otherwise, you could just cover up your boobs and call it a day. [Net-A-Porter.com] Keep reading »
