Shop The Trend: 16 Pieces Of Voluminous, Baggy, Oversized Clothing You Can Really Breathe In

You know what they say, go big or go home. Y'all, I am SICK of wearing clothes that pinch my skin, "hug" my curves (more like strangle, amiright?) and are "figure-flattering" from head-to-toe. What does that even mean anyway? When I see clothing items described as "shrunken" my instinct is to run in the other…

Shop The NYFW Trend: Everything’s Coming Up Palm Prints!

One of my favorite trends out of NYFW so far are the array of leafy palm-prints from designers like Tracy Reese and Yigal Azrouel. From full-on palm trees to more abstract, close-up fronds, palm prints are a sophisticated alternative to regular ol' florals. And you don't have to wait until spring to wear them --…

Shop The NYFW Trend: 13 Ways To Get Your Gingham On

Gingham was a big component in Diane Von Furstenberg's NYFW runway show this week, and while her designs won't be available until spring 2015, there's no reason why you can't rock the hell out of some gingham now. Here are 13 pieces to…

Shop The Trend: Tassels!

Weaving is my current obsession and I'm so excited because this weekend, I'm taking a workshop with THE It Girl of weaving right now, Maryanne Moodie. Her woven tapestries make such great use of color and texture, and I love how she ties in chunky tassels throughout each piece. Tassels are everywhere i…

Shop The Trend: Not Your Grandmother’s Pearls

Coco Chanel aside, pearls have always struck me as prissy and old lady-ish, the kind of jewelry you'd wear with a twin set while watching your boring husband play golf at the snotty country club. In other words, not me at all. Pearls (both faux and real) are having a major comeback, but thankfully these…

Shop The Trend: Pineapple Prints!

My friend Alissa is obsessed with pineapples and eats them constantly. It's her thing. For awhile, whenever I would see a piece of clothing with a pineapple on it, I'd immediately send the link to Alissa with a note: "You need this, obviously." But then I started seeing pineapples on everything and sending her link…

Shop The Trend: Fruit Prints!

I am so pumped that spring weather has arrived! Shorter hemlines, lighter fabrics and happier prints, GET AT ME. Speaking of the latter, one of my favorite trends for spring is fruit. Lemons, limes, strawberries, watermelon and pineapple abound in many of the textiles being used for everything from dresses and skirts to crop tops and rompers.

Shop The Trend: Varsity Blues

Even if I had been, like, into sports in high school, I would have been screwed, seeing as I attended a performing arts school, where I could fulfill my physical education requirement with an assortment of dance classes. No, the whole high school jock culture thing is really foreign to me, and therefore kind of…

Shop The Trend: Everything Is Coming Up Daisies!

What was I saying just yesterday? Oh yeah. The '90s are back, especially when it comes to grunge-era fashion and beauty trends. Let's see, there are overalls, deep, vaguely goth wine-stained lips, crop tops and, of…

Shop The Trend: Hunter Green

There are a lot of different shades of green. I'm not sure who to credit/blame for this. Crayola? Mother Nature? Regardless, according to Wikipedia, hunter green is the color hunters used to wear during the 19th century, until "olive drab green" swooped in and stole its thunder in the 20th century. Not to worry! This darker, moodier…

Shop The Trend: Bright & Cool Kicks

I've never been a total girly-girl. For years, my personal style was pretty tomboyish: baggy pants, plain T-shirts, Doc Martens or Chuck Taylors, you get the picture. Once I moved to New York and started working in an industry that can be very image conscious, I definitely "tried on" a girlier sense of style. It…

Shop The Trend: Ombre

Meaning "shaded" in French, ombre basically describes color graduated in tone from dark to light or vice versa. And ombre is everywhere this season, from coats and sweaters to dresses and accessories. Here are some of our fave ombre pieces...

Shopping The Trend: Oxblood

Oxblood: Just a fancier, more carnivorous way of saying maroon or burgundy. This deep purple-y red hue has been hot for awhile now and shows no sign of disappearing anytime soon, perhaps this is because oxblood is basically a funkier neutral and looks good with almost any other color it's paired with. Got a thirst for oxblood? Here at…

Shopping The Trend: Slouchy Blazers

Fall trends are so great because they're usually stylish and comfortable. Cozy mixed knit sweaters. Warm cape coats. And my personal favorite: the slightly oversized blazer. Whether you choose a super slouchy style or opt for a tailored blazer with just a bit of extra room, you're going to look simultaneously pulled together and edgy, which…

Shopping The Trend: Cobalt Blue

Cobalt blue is one of those trends (and by "one of those trends" I mean "all trends") that come back around every few years, but I always get particularly excited when fashion magazines start being like, "Have you heard of this really pretty color called cobalt blue?" because cobalt blue happens to be my favorite…
