Style Stealer: Gwyneth Paltrow Is Simple And Sophisticated In B&W

I know I poop all over Gwyneth Paltrow and her lifestyle newsletter GOOP on a fairly frequent basis and that some of you don’t, uh, agree with me. To each their own! The thing is, I am able to put aside my personal distaste for GP and acknowledge that I absolutely love her style. With…

Sunny With A Chance Of Stripes

The ’70s are back in a big way this spring and summer and this cute little sundress from Charlotte Ronson’s I Heart Ronson line for J.C. Penney has all the elements. The multi-colored chevron stripes on top give the illusion of a narrow(er) waist, while the vertical stripes on the floaty skirt elongate. We love…

Ask The Man Panel: Pencey’s Beguiling Braided Dress

Admittedly, there are a lot of things going on with this Pencey braided dress: The fringe, the spots, the swishy skirt. It’s not necessarily for everyone, but is it boy-friendly and date-appropriate? We asked our panel of chatty dude friends what they thought about this dress, and you better believe they told us. Got a…

Show Us Your Supercool Prom Style!

Prom — we all have such fond memories, am I right? Okay, even if your date maybe sucked — mine collected spoons! — you probably wore a super sweet dress (not gonna lie, mine was a floor-length eggplant satin number.) And since prom season is right around the corner, we thought it was high time…

Style Stealer: Brie Larson’s Flower Power

Actress and singer Brie Larson lit up the red carpet at the premiere of the stoner alien movie “Paul” Tuesday night, in a ditsy floral dress and coral heels. We love how fresh and spring-y she looks, and want to copy it ASAP. After the jump, we offer our best Larson-a-likes.

Jessica Simpson Wants You To Be Pretty (Not Necessarily In Pink) For The Prom

Jessica Simpson never went to the prom. But she wants you, or at least your younger cousin, to look gorgeous at yours. So in addition to her line of shoes, bags, jeans, etc—apparently, her apparel fiefdom is valued at almost $1 billion a year—Jessica is now creating prom dresses for David’s Bridal. As the pre…

What Trend Did You Discover?

When I was in college, I started doing this innovative thing with my clothes: I wore dresses over jeans. It was not cool. It was so not cool that one of my coworkers at the college paper wrote in my bio, “Julie started the dresses over jeans trend–AND WE WISH SHE WOULD STOP.” But then!

Ask The Man Panel: Yogurt Dress

I’m a huge fan of the swirly fabric flower. I would estimate that 65 percent of the things I own are adorned with some kind of floral fabric poof. From ballet flats to belts to headbands to blouses, I love it all. Naturally, then, I’m pretty obsessed with this elaborately ruffled Marchesa mini-dress. Since it’…

Style Stealer: Rihanna’s Brit-Chic Look

Rihanna’s fashion has traveled so far into the world of vulgar and extravagant that it’s refreshing to see her in an outfit that’s, dare I say, normal. I liked this look she wore in London recently so much that I found a way for us mere mortals to get it. Peep a similar look to…

Style Stealer: Taylor Swift’s Fall Brights

Fall and winter would be boring if we only wore neutrals, so instead, take a cue from Taylor Swift and add some bright, saturated colors to your wardrobe. Her purple dress and turquoise heels are an unexpected color combination that got her noticed and will get you noticed, too. One suggestion, though: add tights to…

You might be several years older than the “Gossip Girl” crew, but admit it: you’ve wanted to dress like Blair Waldorf, Serena Van Der Woodsen, or maybe even Jenny Humphrey at least once. Well, now is your chance. Eric Daman, the stylist who brought us all those cute looks, is designing a line of party…

A Love Affair With A Wrap Dress

Why do we love wrap dresses? Let us count the ways: 1) they’re expandable and contractible, meaning they work during bloated times and thin days; 2) they always flatter our cleavage region; and 3) more often than not, they’re actually comfortable. Why do we love this wrap dress in particular? Because it features our three…

How To Go Casual With Summertime Sexy

American Apparel may be going bankrupt, but recently the retailer’s new styles have been right on the money. Take, for example, this simple jersey tank dress with a sexy scooped back. Our minds are racing with a myriad of ways to use and wear this item. Beach cover-up? Comfy nightgown, perhaps? Trying going risqué with…

Denim And Faint Stripes Make An Adorable Mix

It’s not easy to wear a denim dress without looking like a confused farm hand. For doing it right, we must praise Motel, purveyors of this utterly adorable striped denim concoction. The shape is cute, the pockets subtle and the denim-y-ness not at all overwhelming. We sense a new weekend uniform in the making.

Isaac Mizrahi Channels Vintage “90210” Prom On His Runway

If Brenda Walsh and Kelly Taylor were pissed that they had the same dress for West Beverly’s prom in ’91, imagine how mad they’ll be at Isaac Mizrahi for doing the dress all over again and sending it down the runway. Okay, Mizrahi may not have been out to sabotage Brenda and Kelly’s prom…

Yeah, We’d Play Soccer In That

The World Cup has an official car, so I guess it was only a matter of time before it got a skanky mini dress, too. And here we were thinking that the soccer-sploitation couldn’t get any worse. [Copyranter]…

Style Tip: Ruched Dresses Are A Curvy Girl’s Best Friend

The title of this post may have been a bit of a misnomer. Ruched dresses are actually on good terms with pretty much everyone, but if you’re a curvier girl looking to step into the body-conscious dress arena, a ruched dress is the way to go. Whereas a straight-up fitted dress does little to disguise…
