Who Doesn’t Want Their Ass To Wink?

You know what the ass of your jeans is missing? Eyes. Eyes that wink. Retiree and grandfather of seven, William A. Jones, thinks so anyway. That’s why he’s invented Winkers, “the pants (or jeans) whose rear winks as the wearer walks.” Says the redonkulous press release we received today:

Mr. Jones says that the idea came to him when he admired a woman walking towards him and, as men do, checked her out as she passed him. He could have sworn that her elegantly jeans-clad behind sort of winked at him. He then thought that people-watching would be more interesting if their pants were adorned with eyes at the precise fold created by the motion of walking. Mr. Jones experimented with his daughter’s jeans and was quite pleased with the result: when he applied his technique of accurate placement, the pants
did wink!

Eureka! But that’s not all… Keep reading »

Crave: Zebra Stripe Skinny Jeans

Finally, some animal print pants to wear so you’ll fit in during all-night “Real Housewives Of New Jersey” viewing sessions. Sure, leopard print might be more New Jersey-erffic, but we can definitely get on board with this overture by Forever 21 at Fabulosity, too. It takes a fashionista of hearty stock to pull off zebra print skinny jeans, but we have faith that you can do it. [$36, Forever 21] Keep reading »

Would You Wear Canvas Shoes To Your Wedding?

What if it was for a really good cause? Forget your dainty stilettos, satin-covered pumps or even blue suede shoes, because if TOMS founder (and super hottie) Blake Mycoskie has his way, the shoe of choice for blushing brides will be a pair of canvas slip-ons. The charitable company, which donates shoes to needy children with every purchase, is encouraging brides and grooms to outfit their entire party with their footwear, and they’re sweetening the deal by offering a group discount. Interested brides and singles alike should check out the special page they’ve created for details. Honestly, it shouldn’t even take that much convincing. Anything besides making people wear Crocs for your wedding (remember that trend?) is fine by us. Plus, think of all the good karma your marriage will reap! [Racked] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Katie Grand Supports Wedding Dresses That Aren’t White

“I wore an Azzedine Alaïa brown snakeskin dress, which he tortured me for about two months to get into, but at least it’s something I can wear again. I didn’t want some stupid white dress; it seems like such a waste.”

– Kate Grand, editor-in-chief of Love and stylist who has worked with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein Underwear, Dior Homme, Prada, and more [Times Online] Keep reading »

Fall Trend Alert: Socks And Pumps!

When it comes to style standards, one thing holds true: There are none. Just when you think you’ve absolutely mastered all the fashion no-nos, the industry can manage to turn around any look. One fashion faux-pas we were certain about was socks with high heels, which seems like the equivalent of guys wearing socks with Teva sandals. But lo and behold, what should we find when browsing the J. Crew new arrivals section, but a whole selection of colorful socks paired with classic pumps and mary janes. The styles come in various heights, including ankle and the more traditional knee-high lengths. Is this controversial old trend new again? The more we poked around, the more we found new sock styles that looked like they were made exactly for such a look.

What do you think? Will you don socks and heels for fall? Check out some other looks after the jump… [$9.50-$24.50, J. Crew] Keep reading »

Woman Trades Diamonds For Husband’s Infidelity

Being cheated on sucks. The insecurity, the anger, the effort it takes to burn down his house … it’s all the pits. And while we wouldn’t wish that on anyone, one English woman found a way to lessen the sting a bit, by demanding diamonds from her spouse every time it happened.

Elizabeth Charlton was married to her husband for 26 years. During that time, she gathered more than half a million dollars of “I’m Sorry” jewelry. From big ‘ol diamond necklaces to brooches, rings and bracelets, the girl accessorized her embarrassment well. So well, in fact, that a selection of 43 pieces just sold for a collective 300,000 British pounds at auction. Would you trade your husband’s infidelity for boatloads of bitchin’ jewelry?

Babies Are The New It Bag, Even For Men

It’s been a new day, a new preggers Hollywood actress and/or model lately. In fact, sometimes it seem like babies are the new It bag of choice for some women—who needs Chanel or Chloe when you can tote around a living, breathing Hermes (Hello, Kelly Rutherford)? And now the men folk are getting in on it. Out magazine’s “Baby Daddy” spread features not only some of the most in-demand male models around, but also … babies as props! Screw designer murses—this is all about the well-dressed man and his genetically blessed kid. Check out some of the photos, after the jump. [Design Scene] Keep reading »

Andy Samberg Takes On “Elle” Fashion Challenge For “Date Looks”

Over at Elle, Creative Director and Fashionisto Joe Zee has had an epiphany. Complains a fashion editor to Zee, “He won’t understand that it’s all about my new draped devore velvet Balenciaga dress right now. He’ll only think I’m wearing curtains,” as she laments (oh boo hoo) her first-date outfit choices. And then it hits Zee: Women dress differently for guys than they do for girls. You don’t say? It may have taken Zee a while to figure this out but he gets it now, explaining, “It’s a simple fact: He’s Just Not That Into Your Skirt.”

And so Zee enlists hot man Andy Samberg to face-off in a fashion duel of “date looks” to see if Elle editors prefer Zee’s conceptual high-fashion stylings, or if they vote for Mr. Dick in a Box’s horndog looks. The results? Both hilarious and surprising! Keep reading »

What Would Michael Say? Ed Hardy To Launch His Clothing Collection

Before his untimely passing, pop icon Michael Jackson was in talks with Christian Audigier, the man behind Ed Hardy clothing, to debut his own collection. THe conversations began when Michael tapped Audigier to design his costumes for his final tour, “This Is It.” Audigier revealed on the Today show earlier this week that, while no contracts were signed, the duo discussed in detail what the collection would look like. Audigier and his team presented Jackson with sketches for t-shirts, jackets, gloves and other accessories. They even had items priced. For example, a jacket based on Michael’s iconic Thriller video would cost $500 (before his death, the jacket was set at $250). [The Cut] Keep reading »

Osama Tees and “Anorexic Legs” Stockings Not So Cute

Every now and again a young designer comes along and gives us hope for the future of the industry. Today, Swede Ida Pyk is not one of them. Though we imagine the intention behind her Osama Bin Laden tees and “anorexic legs” tights was ironic, unfortunately, they’re a bit of a FAIL in that department. Call us crazy, but something about a kid holding machine gun ammo just turns us off… [Refinery 29]

More looks after the jump, and you tell us, irony stretched to its limits or just plain offensive? Keep reading »
