Hi/Lo: Fantastic Fall Booties!

Tonight/tomorrow morning, we set the clocks back an hour which means shorter days and colder temps have arrived. One piece of good news: you are absolutely justified in spending some of your hard-earned cash on a new pair or pairs of booties for the season. I decree it. I found seven pairs of stupidly expensive designer booties and their lower-priced lookalikes just for you. You’re welcome.

Must Haves: 14 Cozy Mixed-Knit Sweaters

This season, chunky sweaters with unexpected patters are the ultimate weekend wear. These comfy layers provide much needed warmth, without looking frumpy.  If only my knitting skills were up to the challenge of mixing cable, pom-pom, and diamond patterns into one design! I guess I’ll just be knitting simple scarves and buying all of my mixed knit sweaters this year. Check out a few that will put your classic cable knits to shame.

 

Must Haves: 12 Pairs Of Cold Weather Shorts

A few weeks ago, I wore a pair of wool shorts with tights and boots for the first time. It was a momentous occasion, as I had long held on to the belief that shorts were only for warm summer days and that is it. How wrong I was. Here are 12 pairs of shorts you can totally wear now — with tights and boots — and when the temps start to rise…

Fashion Forecast: A Cool Faux Leather Moto Jacket Styled For Three Different Temperatures

Welcome to layering season! As we ease our way into fall and anticipate cooler temperatures ahead, we’ll be showing you how to wear key wardrobe pieces in different ways depending on the weather outside, ensuring that item you bought in September is still a part of your wardrobe rotation come February. For our second Fashion Forecast, I’m tackling what every fashion magazine has informed me is THE MUST HAVE item of the season: the moto jacket. While I’m usually skeptical of lady mag advice, the moto jacket is actually quite versatile and is an excellent staple you’ll not only wear like crazy this year, but for many years to come. Here’s how to wear this BB Dakota faux leather version when it’s mild and gloomy (now!), chilly (in two months), and cold as fuck and slightly snowy (the dead of winter)… Keep reading »

Style 911: "What Do I Wear With My New Knee-High Biker Boots?"

I just got these gorgeous boots in grey as a gift.  I’m very much a sneakers girl, so I have no idea how to wear them.  Can you help with some outfit ideas? – Jen

Well, first of all, bless the person who gave these to you because they are so freaking cool. I’m salivating. As for how to wear them? Girl, the good news is, you can wear them with a lot. Given that you described yourself as a sneakers girl, I’m guessing your typical style is casual, and perhaps a bit sporty or hip.To show you just how versatile these boots are, I put together three fall outfits that I hope are right up your alley!

“With winter approaching I’m getting into my usual fall dilemma (which I have obviously failed to solve). To be totally honest, I am relatively particular about shoes.  In the summer I wear flip flops, strappy flat sandals, toms and for work and nice dinners out, ballet flats.  I basically refuse to wear heels unless I absolutely must.  I can’t wear boots because of high arches (if I can get them on, they usually pinch my feet so much that they go numb) and this applies to almost every pair of boots I’ve ever tried on or tried to try on. My question is, what shoes can I wear to be semi-dressed up in the winter, for birthday parties, nice dinners out, or on a more casual day to work (I’m a lawyer)? You know, just for day to day, cute shoe wearing. To give you an idea of style, I shop a lot at J. Crew and Anthropologie, but don’t really get into trends too much. Please help!!!” – Emily

Girl, I’m with you. As I’ve gotten older, my foot pain has increased and my willingness to suffer through it in order to wear heels has waned. Luckily, there are a wealth of flats that are just as chic as sky-high heels. Based on the way you described your style, I’m inclined to recommend pointy-toed flats and preppy oxfords and loafers. After the jump, check out the 12 pairs of flats I found, with my suggestions for what to wear them with. Keep reading »
