How Often Do You Buy New Jeans? And How Long Until You Chuck Them?

It goes without saying—the one item in your closet that’s older than the latest “High School Musical” star? Probably your favorite pair of jeans. A new survey from the Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex, England finds that Brits hang on to their jeans longer than any other piece of clothing, and that nearly two million people have pairs they bought as much as 40 years ago.

Hole-y jeans! Keep reading »

Alexander McQueen Show Live Streams Today


In just an hour, fashion designer Alexander McQueen will be live streaming his spring/summer 2010 collection online. Seeing as McQueen is a master of the runway spectacle — previous shows have featured paint-spewing robots, models as chess pieces, and Kate Moss via hologram — it should be an eyeful. The show is titled “Plato’s Atlantis,” and Lee and co. have been teasing the process on Twitter, from model castings to last-minute preparations. The show begins at 8:15 p.m. Paris time — or 2:15 p.m. EST and 11:15 a.m. PST. Tune in! [SHOWStudio] Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Coco Chanel

Itching to dress up like a style dah-ling this Halloween? Dear old kooky Karl Lagerfeld is the obvious choice, but who wants to be obvious on arguably the most important fashion day of the year? Trust me: heads will turn if you arrive at your Halloween fete dressed as classic Coco herself. We prefer the older, established Coco Chanel, whom we imagine left a trail of heaven-sent No. 5 perfume in her wake, so we looked to Shirley MacLaine, star of Lifetime’s “Coco Chanel,” for inspiration.

How To Turn Eyeshadow Into Liquid Liner

We’ve gotten bored with the same old black, brown and gray liner that we use all the time. But rather than blowing money on a whole new set of colored liner, a few cosmetic companies make it really easy to turn your eyeshadow into smudge-proof liquid liner with liquid sealer. We tried one by Make Up For Ever and were immediately impressed by its awesomeness. We’ll show you how to use it after the jump. Keep reading »

Fashion Mag Editors Could Be The Next Top Designers

Everyone knows there’s a bit of a reciprocal trade-off in the fashion world: Designers create clothes to please the magazines, and the magazines feature styles that in turn dictate the trajectory of trends. We might know this implicitly (or, OK, from “The Devil Wears Prada”), but it’s not addressed too often.

Now, Grazia, everybody’s favorite European fashion mag, is bridging the gap between reader/designer/consumer by launching their own clothing collection. Really? Explain the editors: “We spend a lot of time thinking about clothes at Grazia. Even while we’re still attending the catwalk shows, we’re walking around with a wish-list of fashion hits in our heads – the definitive pieces that we’d love to wear for the coming season…So we got to thinking – how would it be if we actually created those pieces?” After the jump, more details and pics from the collection.

Warning: Buying Into This Trend Costs More Than You Think

I’ve been seeing these sexy black leggings with the leather patches around for a while. I’ve been really been wanting a pair, so last week I caved in and bought one from COS (above, left). They were a bit pricey for me at around $120, but I could have spent a lot more—I’ve seen versions of them for over $400. Yet, I went home, slapped them on and felt great when I took them out for a spin that evening. I wore them again the next day, congratulating myself on making such a useful wardrobe addition. Then, when I was cleaning my room the day after and was about to chuck them in the laundry pile, I halted.

Wait … you can’t just put leather in water, can you? Would I dry-clean these? Huh? Keep reading »

WTF Is Going On In The “SATC 2″ Costume Department?

We get it. The reason to take a hit show like “Sex and The City” and make not one, but two feature films based on it are: a.) to continue the storyline for fans, and b.) to create a gloriously entertaining fashion parade on the big screen. (At least, that seems to be the motivation, besides making money and stuff, natch.) But the more clothes we see from the set, the more afraid we are. Keep reading »

Not Cool: Rihanna Tries To Make Old Man Specs Happen

Stop right there, RiRi. We’re willing to overlook the skunk hair and forgive the sheer-paneled dresses because your style is otherwise oh-so-fierce, but this we cannot allow. If these were sunglasses we could see the chicness, but the clear lenses are bringing back memories of Grandpa circa 1983, and NOT in the awesome way. Keep reading »

Booty Pop Panties Make Your Badonkadonk Blow Up In Size!

Awesome Boyfriend Gift: Custom-Made Dress Shirts

Over-sized dress shirts on boys are cute maybe until the end of third grade. After that point, the whole “I’m wearing my big brother’s hand-me-downs” look becomes significantly less adorable. And yet it so often persists years or even decades after the third-grade mark. Clearly, something must be done.

Cue ShirtsMyWay.com, savior to scruffy men and girlfriends in search of birthday presents. The site allows you to customize men’s dress shirts from the fabric all the way to the cuff and yoke (that’s the bit at the back near the shoulders) details for about $75-100. Want black with thin white pinstripes and pale pink inner collar? No problem. Is your boyfriend always trying to stuff his broad shoulders into a too-snug top? Shut it down here and now. You’re welcome. Keep reading »
