Too much black can be really boring, so step out of your comfort zone and add some color to your wardrobe. We’ve found 10 bright blazers that will transform your outfit and add a bit of extra pep. From eye-popping yellow to gold-tinged navy, you’ll never have to go with basic black again.
Doesn’t it suck when you buy something special, only to realize you don’t actually have any place to wear it? Stuff with sequins on it can be difficult — they can make you look like you came to work dressed for a cocktail party. Which is why it’s important that you balance out your sequined pieces with more casual elements during the day. Pair a sequined skirt with flats and opaque tights, or a sequined blazer with jeans. Or get your sequin fix in unexpected ways — like a sparkle-embellished blazer. We’ve got nine sequin-happy items that will give you a sparkly fix and won’t make you look oversdressed.
If Fashion Week’s runways are any indication, you’ll be seeing a lot of fur on the streets this fall. Fur was everywhere — from Marc Jacobs, to Carven to Christopher Kane and more — and you’re bound to see lots more as the temperature goes down. Personally? I’m not huge fur fans (I mean, I’m vegan, after all). It’s horribly expensive and it involves killing animals. So if you like the look of fur, but don’t like the moral and wallet price, try faux fur. We’ve found nine pieces featuring faux fur that we think you’ll love as much as we do.
We were really feeling the crazy patterned blazer that Victoria Justice wore to the premiere of “Bully” the other day.

Check ‘em out after the jump and tell us which one you like best! Keep reading »

Jeggings. Shooties. Jorts. So many hybrid fashion terms, too little time after shopping to memorize them. It’s okay, here’s one worth remembering — FLASHION. That when flash sales occur on hot fashion items allowing shoppers the opportunity to grab them before sell out at a major markdown. Gap is having one a Flashion sale of their own this Saturday March 5th — in-store shoppers will be able to grab this Soft Trench for only $50, nearly $40 off the retail price of $89.95, and just for that one day. But like Veruca Salt, do you want in nowwww — and for free? We’re giving away a Soft Trench to one super lucky reader!
WIN THIS! Tell us in the comments what the most ridiculous fashion hybrid item (a la jeggings) you could imagine would be — and what it would be called. For example, BRADIGAN: a bra that buttons in the front like a cardigan. The most hilarious answer will walk away with Gap’s Soft Trench and the rest of you will have to get your own on Saturday. Enter by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, March 3, 2011. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, March 4. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. (Read the official rules here.) Good luck!

Something about this lace beaded Topshop jacket is kind of Michael Jackson-y but we still think it would look pretty fierce over a few layers of Michael Stars tank tops, paired with tight jeans and high heels. It’s just white — never a good color for outerwear! — so don’t pick up any babies (or drunken hipsters) who
look like they’re gonna puke. [$170, Topshop.com] Keep reading »
