Gap has built its reputation around its classic denim jeans, but this fall, the retailer is shaking things up. The Gap 1969 collection will feature deep, saturated colors like the rust corduroy legging above. Gap has also developed unique washes. Its legging jean will be available in a gummy texture along with subtle camouflage and leopard prints. These definitely aren’t your regular blue jeans, but the corduroy leggings and legging jeans are just as affordable and comfortable. I lived in my Gap cords and black legging jeans last winter because they have just the right amount of stretch to be comfortable, but also hold their shapes.

One of the biggest trends heading into this fall is the midi skirt. (Get it? Not maxi, not mini, but mid-length–took me a while to figure that one out.) These calf-length skirts feel delightfully retro–especially the swingy, pleated versions–and it’s always a bonus when a trend is work-appropriate. The problem? They can be tough to wear, especially for those of us who are vertically challenged. I’m 5’3 with short legs and on the rare occasion I find a midi skirt that actually hits at mid-calf (rather than dragging on the floor), it’s not particularly flattering. “Stumpy” is really the best way to put it. So what about you? Are you embracing the midi skirt or leaving it on the rack? [Shown: Pleated Midi Skirt, $190, ASOS]

Remember the days when Smurfette seemed to have one dress, one pair of shoes, and one hat? Well this season, she’s smurfing it up in the hottest designer accessories this season. Harper’s Bazaar outfitted the blue fashion maven in accessories from Lanvin (pictured above), Marc Jacobs (photo after the jump), Dolce & Gabbana, and Louis Vuitton. So if you wanna dress like Smurfette, then it’ll cost you $6,835 for the Lanvin look alone. [Harper's Bazaar] Keep reading »
Looking pulled together for a bit of errand-running isn’t difficult when you stick to a style uniform like supermodel Claudia Schiffer does. All you need are well-fitting jeans, a blazer, chic and comfortable boots, a colorful scarf, and a sweater. And if you’re feeling a little daring, mix patterns. You might not be able to tell from the photo above, but Claudia is wearing a gray and black cheetah-print sweater that provides the perfect neutral background for her floral scarf. After the jump, find an outfit like Claudia’s. Keep reading »
British musician and TV presenter Myleene Klass has solved the age-old fashion dilemma of what to wear when it’s gloomy and rainy so you don’t look like a soggy mess. She started off with a cute cape that blocked her pleated skirt and stripe T-shirt from the elements. Then, she added a pair of knee-high boots that keep legs and feet from getting soaked, but are so much cooler than Wellies. Myleene chased away gray clouds with a bright red lip. See how you can get a similar look, after the jump. Keep reading »
A couple of weeks ago, The Frisky participated in TakeOnTed, the first-ever remote-controlled digital styling project with Ted Baker London. I was tasked with styling a man and woman for her hypothetical first time meeting his parents at their Notting Hill home. I sent tweets to #TakeOnTed to give directions on my styling. For her, I went for an outfit that was smart and approachable-looking, but also conveyed that she had style. I gave her lips a sheer rosy-tinted stain because a saturated red lip is too bold for meeting the ‘rents, and left her hair curly and bouncy. I think the guy in this situation is at an advantage because he doesn’t have to impress his own parents. So I kept his look layered and pulled together. Check out the video above from the live styling session. And peep the finished photo and get the fashion details after the jump. Keep reading »
