My older brother was an ardent supporter of The Pant Sag when we were younger. If those things weren’t hanging on for dear life somewhere near his knees, something was wrong. Obviously, he looked like a moron and we’re all glad that phase has passed as the trend more or less died. Or, at least I thought it was a thing of the past, but Senator Eric Adams of Brooklyn thinks otherwise. He’s so concerned that the trend is still around — at least in his district — that Brooklyn residents may now feast their eyes on six anti-saggy pants billboards erected around the borough. Complete with two boxer-clad butts and slogans we have difficulty believing aren’t jokes — “Raise your pants, raise your image!” — I can’t help but think these have got to be the biggest waste of taxpayer money ever. (OK, maybe not ever, but still). But maybe I’m missing something and, much like the scrunchie, sagging is back. Have you seen dudes sagging their pants en masse or are there just a few saggy-pantsed stragglers driving this politician batty? [WWD] Keep reading »
Jeggings just got some competition in the “what’s fuglier?” contest. Behold Stella McCartney‘s “denim printed” leggings. They’re part of her line for Adidas, so we assume the idea is that you wear these to the gym? Really?
To get more specific, the description says that these are actually tights, but since they’re footless, we wonder if they’re closer to tights or leggings. This now challenges one of our firm fashion rules: Tights are not pants. But what if your tights are printed to look like pants? Still no. [Adidas.com] Keep reading »
One of the girls dancing around in this ’90s-era “Promalama Ding Dong” (ha!) Sassy magazine fashion spread is Kelis. As in the Kelis who has grills and got married in a lime green dress and dared b*tches to say something about it. Keep those images in your mind as you check out the rest of the images of a young Kelis looking like a suburban prom-goer after the jump. [OMGBlog] Keep reading »
I love Kelly Cutrone and “Kell on Earth” because Cutrone’s got, well, let’s say, a pair, but I also love her because of her super cool relationship with her delightful and stylish daughter Ava. In this video, we get a peek inside Ava’s closet. The girl is a fashion plate already — her favorite designer is Sonia Rykiel — and her closet is filled with dolls, sparkly dresses, and some pink-and-black Chuck Taylors. Can someone get this girl a TV show already or what? [The Cut]

Our dream: waltzing through April and May in the perfect Burberry trench coat. Reality: yeah, right. As an alternative, check out this tan oversized trench, which comes at a fraction of the price but still brings a high-end aesthetic. Plus, we’re into the idea of making this spring jacket less fitted and girly, and taking a more boyish approach with a roomy fit, and a bloused look when belted.
