The Bowl Cut Is Back! (Cue Screams Of Terror)

Maybe it was the triumphant return of formerly long-haired supermodel Irina Lazareanu (above) to the spring 2010 runway alongside other bowled-over mannequins, actresses like Kelly Osbourne sporting the look, or just numerous hip, beautiful young things roaming around N.Y.C. and L.A. … but we can ignore this insidious haircut no longer. It seemingly knows no gender bounds, and it’s personal to those of us who suffered this traumatizing fate back in the day: Once upon a time, your mom got sick of chasing you around to detangle your scraggly hair so, exasperated, she plopped a cereal bowl on your head, trimmed your glorious locks around the edges, and, yes, you still had to go to school the next day. (Shudder.) Of course, the look is far more chic if you meant for it to look that way. But we have to wonder if only models, rock stars (Karen O. always manages to make it work) and the most stylish of the fashionable set among us can pull it off? Are you feeling it, or does it just remind you of rather unpleasant childhood memories? Keep reading »

Now you’re ready to watch a game at a sports bar. But what are you going to wear? Tips for picking out a World Series outfit after the jump — and um, we’re only being slightly facetious.

Yoga Jeans: What Has The World Come To?

We’ve opposed it, but tights continue to be viewed as pants by many. And, last spring, jeans fused with leggings to become “jeggings.” Now, exercise apparel company Athleta is trying to sell us on their Bettona Pant, “a yoga pant that thinks it’s a jean.” With a faux fly, rivets at the pockets, and contrast stitching, these pants have jean-like details but are made from a stretchy, sweat-wicking, breathable fabric with an antimicrobial finish. Sorry, but we don’t get it. Why can’t tights just be tights, and leggings just be leggings, and jeans just be jeans, and yoga pants just be yoga pants?! Can we stop combining clothes and trying to give them multiple functions? [Athleta] Keep reading »

Do You Wear “Conversation Pieces” On Dates?

I know that this might sound like something outdated from a ladymag—but sometimes when getting dressed for a date, I purposefully wear what I call my “conversation piece,” a necklace that belonged to my grandmother. It’s a twisted gold chain that holds an ancient Roman coin pendant. I love this necklace and wear it a lot anyhow, but I’ve also come to find that an unusually high number of guys ask me about it. As the pattern developed, grandma’s necklace has become pretty useful in assessing and creating dialogues with guys when I’m on a date. (If, that is, the subject comes up. I’m not saying I wear this piece of jewelry to fill up pauses in the conversation, like, “Look, look at my necklace! Want to hear about it?”) Keep reading »

Would You Wear Glow-In-The-Dark Underwear?

Here it is only three days away from Halloween and I still have no idea what I’m going to dress up as. I suppose if I wanted to go the sexy route — which I don’t think I do — I could always skip the costume altogether and don this glow-in-the-dark lingerie in a private party for two. The bra and briefs set, called the “Boudoir Collection,” was created by Australian company, Luminglow. The designer, 55-year-old Jan Hawley, said the idea came from her two grown sons. Naturally! Don’t most designers get their ideas for racy lingerie from their kids? “I have to laugh discussing knickers and bras with my sons and asking them what they like and think looks good. It’s hilarious. I can only say its been an illuminating experience from beginning to end.” Hawley says. The bra sells for about $46, the lace briefs for about $26. [via Daily Mail]
