This Sunday, Sasha Obama wore this ASOS unicorn sweater to a basketball game, and the internet promptly exploded shortly afterward. People rushed to snatch up the sweater, which was on sale for $20, and it sold out almost immediately. For a while, there was talk of the sweater being indefinitely unavailable. TRAGEDY. As it turns out, it will be restocked on December 2! Get your credit cards ready! Follow ASOS’s Twitter for updates on the oh-so-famous sweater. [ASOS via Huffington Post]
The other day I was looking for a cute little skater dress, and came across this little leaf print number. Cute, right? Only problem? It appears the model is missing a significant portion of her waist. Where did it go? [Asos]
This photo reminds me of some kind of “Count the trends!” game you might find in a fashion-themed issue of Highlights magazine. I’ve counted nine so far: bralette, geometric necklace, tribal prints, mixed prints, peplum, layers, mini skirt, pencil skirt, sheer fabric. Am I missing any? Also how in the world could you ever wear this in real life? [Sheer Pencil Skirt with Printed Peplum: $37, ASOS]
I’m usually drawn to classic bag shapes: the satchel, the tote, the messenger, the piranha. Yep, you read that right. The quilted pirhana is totally a classic in its own right. [$78, ASOS]
Me: Hey there. You OK?
Model: Yes, why? Keep reading »
ASOS has one of the most extensive selections of any online retailer, which is great, but it can also a bit daunting. To help you sort through the infinite options, we picked 10 of our favorite bright, springy pieces for 50 bucks or less. Click through to check ‘em out!
Come September, Asos.com, the U.K.’s largest multi-brand online retailer, will make a virtual leap across the pond to the U.S. This shopping site is already one of our favorites because it not only sells affordable trendy pieces, but also has an extremely large selection from brands like Gap, Levi’s, and Diesel. However, unlike other trendy sites like Topshop and Forever 21, ASOS also sells designer items from the likes of McQ by Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, and D&G, to name a few. It’s pretty difficult not to find something to love amongst the 37,000 style options. The U.S. site will have prices in dollars and different vocabulary, i.e., a vest will no longer mean a tank top, I’m guessing. Items purchased from the U.S. site will still ship from the U.K., but an Atlanta, GA, logistics facility will handle returns from American customers. September can’t come fast enough.

Twitter has become a bit overwhelming. Everyone and their mother (yes, mothers, including Brad Goreski’s mom) are on the social media platform, tweeting away about their daily plans. It’s pretty easy to miss exciting news or random interesting comments given the mass amounts of tweets that are published daily, so Asos decided to solve this particular fashion dilemma. The brand just launched a simple website, which culls together a variety of different Twitter feeds–including models, bloggers, celebrities, designers and editors–so it’s like a one-stop shopping site for your 140-character updates. So far the site is minimal, providing select Twitter users, but we can imagine this will be added to many RSS feeds. [Asos Follows Fashion] Keep reading »
It’s no secret that online shopping is becoming the new standard. From Net-A-Porter to Gilt Groupe, you never have to leave your couch in order to buy new clothes. (Going out to wear said new purchases, well, that’s a necessity.) Now, one of our fave online stores, Asos, has launched a plus-size collection called Curve, which features knitwear, tailoring, jersey and outerwear. The collection ranges in size from 20-26, and includes staples such as leggings, jean jackets, and relaxed T-shirts for layering, but also delves into the trend department. Gone are the dowdy plus-sized designs — here are floral options with nipped waists, adorable pea coats, and the boyfriend jeans of the moment. Online shop away! [Marie Claire UK] Keep reading »
