Lucite Is A Contagious Disease That’s Spreading From Heels To Toes

While generally reserved for strippers, Lucite heels might break into the mainstream thanks to their presence on the Prada runway and in Maison Martin Margiela’s collection. But the ones we’ve seen are pricey — to the tune of a grand and more — and some would say they still look cheap.

So, if clear heels aren’t your thing, you can still jump on the see-through bandwagon. There are always clear accessories or clear nails, the latter which was at Prada’s spring 2010 show and seems to be on the forefront of transparent since we certainly haven’t seen them before.

Not to be confused with nude nails or ones painted with clear polish, transparent nails are clear extensions that go atop normal nails. They sort of resemble when we put pieces of Scotch tape on our hands at a very young age. While Miuccia Prada designs clothes that launch trends, we’re not sure who’s going to get behind this one. Maybe the people who are already into Lucite heels? [British Vogue] Keep reading »

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Bordeaux Sep. 28th 2009

Camel and gray is the most sophisticated color combination for fall, just ask Derek Lam and Michael Kors, who both showed it on the fall runway. Heading out to meet friends at Place de la Bourse, Marie nails the season’s trend by layering her gray Comptoir des Contonniers dress with a camel Uniqlo cardigan. The cool girl attitude? Also seen on the runway. Keep reading »

The Return Of Men’s Earrings?

OK, so if you think about hippie ear plugs and rapper swag style, man jewelry hasn’t really gone anywhere. (Mewelry? Guylery? Man bling? Mling? But we digress …)

According to The New York Times‘ The Moment blog, man earrings are coming back from their heyday in the ’90s, and this time, with a slightly different flavor. Used to be, guys might pierce an ear to signify sexual preference. Left means straight; right means gay gay gay. Apparently, however, recent fashions haven’t necessarily advertised sexuality so much as style. Rag & Bone decked out its guy models with piercings for its recent showing during Fashion Week. (OK, slightly ambiguous).

Jeans To Go With Your Motorcycle Boots

I think we can all agree that we’re so over the $300 price tag that certain denim companies shamelessly attach to plain old jeans. Not that we wouldn’t pay a significant amount of money for the perfect pair of jeans that we’ll wear everyday, but still, it’s cotton people! Those profits must be amazing! That’s why we’re kind of feeling the newish company, Recession Denim, which makes very high-quality jeans that are designed to last a lifetime, which if we’re paying more than $75, is all we’re asking for, ya know? They feature plenty of cuts and styles, but the prices are a little more reasonable. (Personally, we’re loving the new Motorcycle model with sewn-in paneling, $98, in black.) They just started selling at Bloomingdale’s, and check their site for more stores. Keep reading »

What Your Favorite Fashion Bloggers Are Wearing Today

We’re a tad biased, but we happen to think that fashion bloggers are pretty legit when it comes to clothing selection (as opposed to sitting around in sweats all day, which is fine too, but … ). Proving our theory are a handful of e-fashion mavens who recently ran wild in the closets of Elle magazine to put together their favorite day and night looks. Honestly, there’s really not an outfit in the bunch that we wouldn’t happily steal. From Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power (left) of WhoWhatWear to the now-ubiquitous Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes, Elle covered quite the spectrum, style-wise. Check out more pics after the jump and the rest here. [Elle] Keep reading »

Now You Can Shop The Sartorialist At Topshop

My inspiration board is filled with photographs taken by the Sartorialist master Scott Schuman, and my wallet has been depleted ever since Topshop came to New York City.

Now, to make all my style dreams come true, the British high street store has tapped Scott to create shopping pages for customers, based on his iconic photographs. He’s broken down his top five looks from Fashion Week and made each item shop-able through the Topshop website. Meaning that his brilliant eye for fashion has quickly translated into online shopping.

The best part? Your new style looks only require a quick click to buy and all of the sudden you’ve become the stylish girl on the cobblestone streets. All that I’m left wanting for now is my own image appearing on his blog… [Topshop]

Style Stealer: Amanda Seyfried’s Oversized Blazer

“Boyfriend” everythings are available in stores right now. Madewell has bf T-shirts and ex-boyfriend jeans; DKNY has boyfriend cardigans; and Juicy Couture has boyfriend watches, to name a few. We’re pretty psyched companies are making oversized clothes for women, because we have trouble wearing actual man-friends’ button-downs (they weren’t made for boobs) and jeans (they’re huge!). Amanda Seyfriend gets the boyfriend blazer right by not wearing it with other bulky clothes, well, except for that huge handbag. Click through for seven oversized jackets that’ll make you look put-together in skinny jeans and a T-shirt, or business-appropriate when paired with a pencil skirt and a tank. Keep reading »
