Behold, wool “jogging” pants brought to you by Band of Outsiders. Basically, that’s a fancy way to say “really warm sweatpants.” We’re not exactly sure what kind of customer Band of Outsiders is trying to lure with these slacks. Runners who are always cold? People who like the “wool” part of pants but not really the “pants” part of pants? What about you? Are you a winter hater who says these are totally hot? Or … not? [TrendHunter] Keep reading »
Unless you’re in the mafia, the pinky often gets left out when you accessorize. And you know what? It’s tired of being passed over just so your ring finger can wear some wedding ring, whatever, like that’s important. Now you can adorn both digits with this double ring by Slow and Steady Wins the Race. The simple silver design has interlocking settings, joining your two fingers together in holy fashimony.
For those of you who have stepped in gum and want to relive the experience, behold Kobi Levi’s chewing gum shoes. “The shoe is my canvas,” Levi explains, “The trigger to create a new piece comes when an idea, a concept and/or an image comes to mind.” How long before Katy Perry shows up in these?

“What Not To Wear” is my go-to channel-surfing show — and if it’s a weekend marathon, I will binge on six straight episodes like Lady Gaga at a lobster hat sale. What’s not to like? The women (and occasionally men) nominated by their loved ones for “What Not To Wear” are all-too-relatable with their style problems: the baggy clothes, the closets filled with dresses that don’t fit anymore. And the hosts, Clinton Kelly and Stacy London, make all the funny-but-firm observations that most of us think but don’t want to say.
With hundreds of episodes filled with “fashion don’ts” under his belt, Clinton debuts a new book next week called Oh No She Didn’t! The Top 100 Style Mistakes Women Make and How to Avoid Them. But don’t expect “What Not To Wear” makeovers past to get raked over the coals. No joke, Clinton said Oh No She Didn’t was written based on what he saw tourists wearing in New York City’s Times Square!
At the end of a long day filming “What Not To Wear,” Clinton called me for a, um, colorful conversation about the new book, hairy legs and armpits, and why you should leave French manicures to the whores. Oh, and he called me a “little bitch.” Keep reading »
Lately, I’ve been thinking about the evolution of my personal style. As a kid I was a chubby tomboy who favored dirty overalls and baggy T-shirts. In middle and high school, inspired by the indie music scene, I became a thrift shop queen (budding hipster?) with a large collection of vintage T-shirts. In college I decided I would become rural Oregon’s answer to Carrie Bradshaw and often wore tutus to my Comparative Religions class. Keep reading »
These $88 “genie pants,” part of the Heidi Klum for New Balance collection, are giving me severe middle school flashbacks. My PE teacher wore a very similar pair of heather gray sweats every day as she forced us to do endless laps on the track and laughed as I writhed helplessly on the pull-up bar. At one point she caught wind of my underground revolution urging my classmates to “stroll the mile” rather than run, and she made me sit alone in a corner for the rest of the semester. Who knew she would one day inspire a supermodel to design a capsule collection? Keep reading »
