This spring, fashion is all about the daring cuts. If you’d rather flash a little leg than a little midriff, consider the high slit trend. Maxi skirts and dresses with high slits are coming in an array of fabrics and patterns, for occasions both casual and formal. To avoid pulling a Paris Hilton and flashing your mons pubis, go for slits that are off to the side and not so high that they’re cuttin’ it close. Here are 10 high-slit maxi skirts that will flash a lot of leg…
There’s a hell of a lot more to Sarah Jessica Parker than Carrie Bradshaw and Manolos. For example, did you know that her favorite movie is “The Way We Were,” and that her dream duet partner is Doris Day? Bet not. Thankfully, Vogue got to spend five minutes with the “Sex and the City” star in her New York City brownstone, where the style icon was grilled (in lightning round-fashion) about 73 things—from books and motherhood to food and her high school prom. In case you didn’t love SJP enough, this should just about do it for ya.
One of my favorite recent trends is the use of sheer insets/panels/sleeves/details to add visual interest and a little sex appeal to every day pieces. Using mesh, organza, chiffon or silk, these little windows expose a glimpse of extra skin, but in a tame, subtle way. Check out 16 cool, fashionable pieces I found with sheer panels…
Well isn’t this just the most perfect work-to-cocktails outfit I ever did see? For starters, if you don’t already have some sort of stretchy midi skirt in your closet, you need one — they’re comfy but look polished and can be dressed up or down. I love that Nikki Reed kept things unexpectedly by pairing her stripe skirt with a bright orange-y red sweater, gold-accented accessories, and slightly sexier versions of the standard black blazer and pumps. Flawless from head to toe! Get the look for yourself after the jump! Keep reading »
LOL, I must be a masochist because I decided I just had to do a Style Stealer on this super fashion-y outfit worn by teenager Elle Fanning. Because chartreuse coats, jeweled pumps and sheer-paneled blouses are just everywhere, you guys, so this should have been simple. Alas, as you can probably sense from my sarcasm, it was not simple in the slightest and I had to make some concessions when it came to accuracy. The coat is yellow, because the coat that would have been perfect — Topshop’s Boyfriend Coat in lime green — is sold out. And the jeweled pumps? Forget about it, I went with leopard-print because from far away they have the same effect. I mean, I think the outfit I came up with is almost as cute. In fact, it may be cuter if you’re one of the many people who would rather die than wear chartreuse. Anyway, details after the jump!

I’m gonna be honest, aside from certain key times of day, I pretty much refuse to walk inside an H&M. One of two things happen when I do:
- I walk in and almost immediately turn around and walk out because I can just tell by the air that staying any longer is going to give me an anxiety attack
- I decide to brave it, spend 30 minutes collecting items to try on, realize the line for the dressing room is 10 chicks deep, throw my stuff down in a huff and walk out empty-handed.
But now that H&M has an e-commerce site that delivers in the U.S. we can all avoid that particular hell hole and just order online, venturing inside only if we’re headed straight to the register to return something that doesn’t fit. Unlike some online retailers, H&M has large photos of all their items so you can get a sense of fabric quality and color. And they no doubt have a much better selection than what’s in stores. Here are 10 things — all under $60 — I’m currently coveting for spring!
Well, after nearly 13 years in New York City, I’ve started to get a serious itch to move back to my home state of California. Maybe it’s just this exhaustive winter, but I haven’t been able to stop daydreaming about 75 degree February days spent at the beach, transcendent sunsets on the palm-tree specked horizon, and tacos — lots of tacos. Until I find my way back west, I’m looking to add a little Cali-inspiration to my wardrobe. Here are some pieces that are speaking to my SoCal-bred soul.
