Moschino Attempts To Revive The Worst “Trend” Of The 90s

I think we can all agree that as nostalgic as we may be for the 90s at times, there were a few fashion trends that need to stay buried there for all time. For instance-- those hologram shirts for dudes from Gadzooks?. Don't ever need to see that again! Pleated jeans? No thanks! I'm good!

Topshop’s Yellowface Necklaces Are Racist Whether They’re “Vintage-Style” Or Not

When a Topshop customer in the UK came across this necklace while shopping at the chain store, she complained to a customer sales representative and was told that the necklace was "acceptable, because it was vintage style" and therefore "not racist." The necklace depicts an early 19th century stereotype of East Asians -- as Refinery

Khloe Kardashian Brings Thigh Window Jeans To The Fashion Forefront

Theory: Khloe Kardashian is a messy eater and frequently drops food on her lap, so she bought these jeans with GAPING HOLES between her kneecaps and upper thighs, aka the spill zone, so they wouldn't stain. If you have the same problem, you can buy a similar pair from Urban Outfitters. This egregiously destroyed denim…

Do Not Want: $455 Dolce & Gabbana Jorts For Men

I don't feel like "Do Not Want" really even captures my gut-level reaction to these $455 jean shorts (jorts, if you're nasty) for men. "Fuck no, stop triflin'" or "Get the fuck out of here with this nonsense" is more accurate. Jorts -- that is, denim shorts that have been hemmed, not simply jeans that have bee…

What Would You Call This Fur Boob Muff That Rihanna Is Wearing?

A titty warmer? A breast merkin? Funbag fur? A boobler? "It's like a muffler, but for boobs!" said Ami. John DeVore volunteered "mammoth unibrow," "Muppet tits," and my personal favorite, "Giant Boob Tribble." I'm not sure of its purpose, besides keeping your breasts warm to the point of sweating profusely. I hate it. That i…

Do Not Want: Hideous & Expensive Teva-Esque Sandals Are In For Spring

When I look out the window right now, I see snow blanketing New York City, further sign that Punxsutawney Phil wasn't joking when he saw his shadow and predicted four more months of winter. And while I am longing for the warmer temperatures of spring, one thing is giving me pause. The fact that, according to…

This Tank Top Is A Stupid Liar

Off the top of my head, I enjoyed reading Jeffrey Eugenides' Middlesex, J.D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey, Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird and Zadie Smith's White Teeth more than the company of many, many, many boys/men. Luckily, these two things -- boys and books -- are not actually in competition for anyone's affection or attention. This shirt, wherever it's being sold, is bullshit. [Tumblr via…

Remember That Time Marc Jacobs Made The Same T-Shirt As A Neo-Nazi Skinhead Band?

Fashion tip number one: before you decide to go ahead and emblazon a Cool, Edgy Symbol on a $70 T-shirt, why not use the fine resource known as this here Internet to confirm that it hasn't already been claimed by a white power rock band, you know, just to play it safe? Come on, Marc…

Do Not Want: Topshop’s $65 “Mom Jeans”

Dear Topshop, I'm not sure why anyone would willingly purchase a pair of mom jeans, but I think everyone knows that an authentic pair can be procured at any Kohl's or Kmart for much, much less than the $65 price you've slapped on these acid-washed, tapered, high-waisted monstrosities. Seriously. Make it stop. [Bleach Acid Mom…

8 Swimsuits That Will Make You Want To Crawl Back Into Your Winter Coat

Don't let the shitty weather fool you. According to most major women's clothing purveyors, it is bathing suit season. Maybe it's on account of it being "Spring Breakers" all over the place ("sprang break! sprang break! sprang break!"), but a surprising portion of this year's swimsuits seem to be rather tickety-tackety. But don't take our…

Do Not Want: Sweaty Chest Hair Sweater

One of the worst things about normal sweaters is that they cover up the glistening, hairy man chests that the world deserves to see. Firebox's "70s Hairy Chest Sweater" solves that problem in truly horrifying style, with a printed image of a naked torso, complete with shiny belly hair and a gaudy necklace. This polyester…

Do Not Want: For Shame Martin Margiela, For Shame!

You know all those times when you're like, "Gee, I wish I had some pasty white people leg tights?" No? You don't want those? Well, too bad, because Maison Martin Margiela has fashioned the perfect pair of skin-crawlingly Caucasian-flavored tights. These bad boys also include a rather menacing black stripe right across the thighs. Do…

Oh, Come On: These Molaro Shoes Have Got To Be Kidding Me

Look at this model. It's like she's saying, "I'm a sad, sexy clown! I'm a pouty mime!" Plus, she's got these stupid platform shoes-cum-skis on her feet. And yes, the models were required to somehow get down the runway in these monsters. Gianni Molaro -- the wizard behind these looks -- exhibited his collection a…

Do Not Want: These Celine Mink Heels Are Freaking Me Out!

These Celine mink heels are from the brand's Spring/Summer 2013 collection -- and they are giving me the major creeps. Designed, apparently, out of Muppets the designers trapped and killed, these heels come in an array of blinding hues. Celine designer Phebe Philo doesn't usually go so extremely, crazily wrong, but these heels are offensive…

Do Not Want: No Sir, I Will Not Cosign On Your Meggings

Meggings. We've written about them before, but I felt the need to dredge up the awful man-leggings trend, because I've just received an email from meggings proponents B-Skinz, showing me the lastest and greatest in meggings technology: Behold these fugly-ass rainbow meggings Or, okay, as they're technically called "psychedelic jungle meggings."…

Do Not Want: This Tulle Dress Is Making Me Gag

How gross is this Asra Tulle Midi Dress, sold at Anthropologie? First off, it's only a sheer over-layer -- it's not even a full-on dress (unless you are really, extremely daring). Second, those weird faux tulle roses are making me want to gag. There is absolutely no proper application of those things, unless you're talking…

You’re A Stylish PC, So Why Not Wear These Apple Clothes?

Back in the mid-'80s, Apple computers thought it would capitalize on its popularity by releasing a line of super cool clothing, including sweartshirts, shorts, belts, hats and -- of course -- turtlenecks. Now, almost 20 years later, these looks are hopelessly dated and hilarious. Check out more from the extra special Apple collection after the…

TopShop’s Newest TopMan Collection Ensures Wearers Will Never See A Vagina

Rarely does TopShop do anything egregiously wrong -- on the women's side of its operation, at least. But on the men's side? Well, there's a reason why TopMan is lagging far behind its female counterpart in sales and hype. You can see what I mean by taking a look at TopMan's latest offerings -- a…

Rihanna, Girl, What Are You Doing?

If style is cyclical (Is it? I don't know, I made that up), Rihanna is back to being in the pre-makeover stage of her sartorial evolution. What in the holy hell is she wearing? I can see her nipples through her bra. A bra she is wearing as a top, by the way. Is thi…
