Baby, it is cold outside. What we wouldn’t give for that mythical garment that both keeps us warm and enlivens our wardrobe with a little imagination. Does such a thing exist? Why yes! This crewneck’s red and gray stripes will go great with any of the neutrals in your closet, the snuggly wool with banded sleeves is sensible and warm, and that red unicorn on the front? She takes this sweater from basic to majestic.
Well, this is rather lovely. Kate Moss
starred in Balmain’s fall/winter ad campaign. Now, the brand has coupled up with Nowness to create an animated video version. In it, Moss fidgets and flops on a sofa while her hair changes color and a series of cartoon creatures accost her. A black snake slithers around her neck and plays with her cigarette smoke. A creepy hand tackles her face. What appears initially to be a fun illustration by the end suggests the girl prostrate before us is possibly haunted by darker forces not readily seen. We like.

Gentlemen, this flashy flasher is only the jewelry present that won’t get you a thank-you blow job. Can you call the cops on a necklace charm? [Why Did You Buy Me That] Keep reading »
Swedish fashion giant H&M has done some pretty high profile collaborations in the past–Lanvin, Victor & Rolf and Stella McCartney, to name just a few. But you probably haven’t heard of their newest collaborator. Fashion blogger Elin Kling is “big in Sweden” but really hasn’t made a name for herself here. Still, she’s been plucked from the land of attractive blondes and high literacy rates to design the brand’s latest collaboration. Kling’s blog, Style By Kling, features tons of photos of Kling looking svelte and stylish. Most of the blog is in Swedish, so we can’t really tell you what, if anything, it’s about. Kling is known as one of Sweden’s leading fashion ladies. Sadly, we Americanos won’t be able to get our grubby mitts on her collection: It’s only available in Sweden. But perhaps some pieces will pop up on eBay? [Fashionista] Keep reading »
The other day we saw a list of the 10 most stylish kids under 20. A lot of the usual suspects were on the list: actress Chloe Moretz, singer Willow Smith, and blogger Tavi Gevinson. These girls all have great style–but it helps that they have stylists, unending budgets and access to top designers to make it happen. We didn’t have that when we were teens, but still, we had pretty wild style when we were younger. Now it’s your turn to share. We want your teenage photos! Were you channeling Angela Chase? Were you a preppy gossip girl? A mallternative punk? We want to see it!
Send us a picture — with a description of what you’re wearing — that best encapsulates your teenage style, and we’ll include them in a giant Frisky reader fashion slideshow. Send your stylish teen images to me at Julie@TheFrisky.com. Keep reading »
Fashion is once again being unfriendly to short women. According to the fashion directors at the top department stores, like Lord & Taylor and Neiman Marcus, sensible, pointed-toe flats are making a return. This might have something to do with the lower hemlines or boho fashions that are popular now, or maybe some women are simply sick of sky-high heels? But this is one trend I’m completely opposed to. Why? Well, for one thing I like having a little lift — OK, a lot of lift — from a high heel. And secondly, a short person wearing pointed-toe flats runs the risk of looking like an elf. And that’s not a good look! Of course, I have nothing personally against flat shoes. Rounded-toe or almond-toe ballet flats are chic and sensible. Pointed-toe ones, not so much. How do you feel about the return of pointed-toe flats? [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
