Clutching For Fall

To say that I’m “clutch-obsessed” is an understatement. I’m a full-blown, self-professed addict of these neat little purses. Having practiced all summer, I am now a pro at fitting my daily essentials into a clutch (hint, hint: It all begins with a mini hold-all wallet). So this fall I’m not putting away my clutches for…

Shopping Guide: 10 Flower Prints Inspired By Peter Som

We couldn’t help but fall a little bit for Peter Som’s exuberant, larger-than-life flower prints in his Spring/Summer 2012 collection. But one thing we can’t abide — or afford — is Som’s exorbitant designer prices. So we’ve searched around and found 10 pieces that evoke the same sense of joy and happiness that Som’s flowers do, without…

Shopping Guide: 9 Cool Cropped Trenches

Among your cadre of summer-to-fall jacket options, consider the cropped trench. It’s cute, versatile and can be worn as both outerwear and — if you’re feeling particularly daring — as a blazer. We saw a girl wearing one today and were particularly covetous of the easy way the blazer fell over her long T-shirt and…

Shopping Guide: Rad Rope Detailing

The other day, I saw a great shirt with nautically-themed rope detail on it, and almost purchased it, but balked at the last minute. I’m kicking myself now, because the rope detailing gave the blouse an added kick that elevated it from typical to totally outstanding. To ensure that you and I don’t make that…

Inspiration Board: Wearing A Maxi Dress For Fall

Look at Olivia Wilde trying to be all incognito in the photo above. It’s okay, Liv, we’re paying more attention to your early fall look than you, actually. Why are we so smitten with her ensemble, you might ask? Well for starters, we’re suckers for stripe maxi dresses. But even more than that, we love…

Queen Latifah Releases A Just-Okay Lifestyle Brand With HSN

Queen Latifah has possessed a powerful image since the 1980s. Who can forget the impact of a female MC donning queen-like garb — leather Africa medallions, Nefertiti-esque hats, and other Afro-centric attire? But, still, we would never argue that she’s a fashion icon. So we’re kind of surprised she, too, has a lifestyle brand with…

The Perfect Evening Cover-Up

One of the more difficult voids to fill in our closet is the role of “fancy-ish evening cover-up.” Something you can thrown on over a pretty dress or flirty top that isn’t business-like (like a structured blazer) or casual (like a knit cardigan). That’s where the silky shirt-jacket comes in. We saw a number of…

Gap Adds More Color & Washes — And Tacos — To Its Denim Collection

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…

Love It Or Leave It: The Midi Skirt

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…

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…

Style Stealer: Myleene Klass Knows How To Work A Rainy Day

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.

When The Frisky Took On Ted

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.

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…

Inspiration Board: Chloe Moretz’s Simply Chic Look

OK, so Chloe Moretz is only 13, but that doesn’t mean we can’t worship her style, which is quite mature for her age. Her look of a brown-and-black striped top and thick black shorts would be appropriate for a casual office, dinner with friends, or trip to the theater. So we just had to figure…
