Fashion Math: Graphic Sweatshirts + Printed Skater Skirts + Bright Stilettos

Y’all know me. I can’t resist a graphic sweatshirt, I love a blindingly bright shoe, and, as one lame ex-BF once noted, I never met a print I didn’t like. Obviously, I needed to play a lil’ Fashion Math with Nina Dobrev’s cute ensemble combinging all three elements.

Fashion Math: White Blouses + Faded Denim + Leopard Print

Ever since I posted about how to steal Ashley Madekwe’s outfit this weekend, I’ve been obsessing over all the ways to wear a crisp white shirt, faded denim and, for a dose of glam, leopard print shoes. Let’s play some Fashion Math…

Fashion Math: Summer Suits + Statement Necklaces

Everyone should have at least one plain, well-tailored suit in their closet for interviews and business meetings, but that doesn’t mean you have to lock it away until such an occasion arises. For example, check out this photo from Dylanlex’s lookbook, featuring a suit paired with the brand’s gorgeous Sienna statement necklace I can’t look away!

Fashion Math: Polka Dots + Stripes + Checks

Happy Thursday, students! It’s time for an advanced lesson in print mixing, brought to you by professional do-nothing Olivia Palermo. I was so inspired by Olivia’s daring decision to combine three prints in one outfit that I just had to do a little Fashion Math of my own. Here are six ways to wear stripes, checks/plaids and…

Fashion Math: Pink + Orange

Pink alone is alright, but pink with orange? Now that makes me think of summer! I know what you’re thinking. Uh, don’t orange and pink clash? Yes! But in a good way! How else could a scoop of rainbow sherbet ice cream look so insanely delicious? (Especially right now — I’m going to Baskin-Robbins at lunch.) I…

Fashion Math: Biker Jackets + Flowy Midi Skirts

Who says models aren’t smart? Adriana Lima gets an A+ in Fashion Math for this fantastic spring ensemble, combining a floaty below-the-knee skirt with a cropped moto jacket. Another way of looking at this equation: Tough + Feminine = Perfection. Get out your calculator, here are 10 versions to consider…

Fashion Math: Silky Camis + Skorts (Yes, Skorts!)

That isn’t a typo! I did not mean to type “skirts” or “shorts.” The skirt/short hybrid of our middle school days is BACK, y’all! When I saw this photo of Reese Witherspoon rocking a skort with a silky cami, I was like, Wait, is this a thing or is just one lonely designer trying to bring

Fashion Math: Lacey Blouses + Soft Printed Pants

Olivia Munn, above, is wearing a variation on what I call pajama fashion — a lacy blouse that looks like it could be the top half of a silky nightgown paired with slouchy silk printed pants not unlike those your mom or dad wore to bed. Pajama fashion is super comfy, but if you get…

Fashion Math: Denim Vests/Jackets + Printed Maxi Dresses

Say hello to your summer uniform, as worn by Dianna Agron during spring in Los Angeles. So jealous of your weather, LA! Anyway, a printed maxi dress topped with a fitted denim jacket or vest is hardly a new fashion equation, but even basic arithmetic needs to be revisited from time to time. Here are…

Fashion Math: Stripes + Floral Prints

Today’s Fashion Math — in which two fabulous elements are added together to form one super stylish outfit — is inspired by … myself! I know, how egotistical. But I liked my outfit today and think it demonstrates just how necessary it is to break certain old fashioned style rules about combining prints. My blouse is a…

Fashion Math: Sweatshirts + Midi Skirts

Leave it to Chloe Grace Moretz to combine two of my favorite current trends — a fitted sweatshirt and a full midi skirt — into one fabulous outfit. Mixing a sporty top with a girly bottom keeps the look from being too casual or too precious, and has that much ballyhooed “effortless” vibe. Naturally, I went buck…

Fashion Math: Ryan Gosling Is Clearly Miley Cyrus’ Style Muse

Now it all makes sense! The reason why I am inexplicably drawn to Miley Cyrus is because she’s cribbing her look from my celebrity dream boyfriend Ryan Gosling. I mean, that bleached ‘do is straight out of “The Place Beyond The Pines,” and the jacket she was spotted wearing in NYC today is totally “Drive”-inspired.

Hilarious Fashion Arithmetic!

Snuffleupagus + Rambo = a Pringle of Scotland, pre-fall 2010 RTW look? Silicone breast implants + a pill pack = a look from the Armani Privé spring 2010 couture show? Does Dracula + hand soap = a dress-coat combo from Chanel spring 2010? Yes, if you go to Fashematics, a totally clever and hilarious website…
