Hi/Lo: Black & White Mules

Hi/Lo: Black and White Mules

If you are flirting with the idea of mules this spring, consider a black and white, color-blocked pair as a great way to modernize this ’90s trend. These Fendi patent leather mules are exquisite and the color and texture contrasts create a clean, mod-meets-futuristic look. Unfortunately, I am unwilling to spend $850 on any shoe, let alone something that may be a passing trend! I think I’ll try Charles David’s version for $79.95 at DSW instead.

I love a fun statement piece that can be worn year round.  This Alexander McQueen romper could be paired with tights and a jacket or rocked solo, and is the kind of onesie I could picture being worn by preppy Taylor Swift or daring Lily Allen. Unfortunately, Alexander McQueen’s romper is more than my monthly NYC rent! Try Motel’s version available at British retailer Bank Fashion. Much easier on the wallet and just as fly!

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 intriguing. I wouldn’t go back to high school for a million dollars, but I would spend a little dough to rock varsity style, which is super popular for spring. The key is not to wear more than one or two sporty pieces at a time, unless you want to look like an extra from a teen high school drama on ABC Family. Here are 12 pieces I’m currently jonesing for…

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 lipscrop tops and, of course, the floral that basically defined the ’90s, DAISY-PRINT. Celebrate the first day of spring — finally! — with one of these fun, whimsical daisy-print items.

Style Guide: 4 Of Spring’s Hottest Pattern Trends

Every spring stores are dominated with floral prints, but this year, designers branched out into exploring several statement patterns, which work in pastel, neon or primary colors. Here is a quick guide to this season’s hottest patterns…

Must Haves: 10 Stylish Pairs Of Peep-Toe, Ankle-Strap Mules

I’ll be perfectly honest, I’m not sure what the difference is between a shootie and a mule, if there even is one. (I’m also not sure how anyone keeps a straight face while saying the word “shootie,” because I just chuckled to myself typing it. What a ridiculous hybrid fashion term.) All I know is that this style of shoe, which covers most of the foot, save the toes popping through in the front and the exposed heel in the back, is huge for spring.

Now, mules, more often than not, are backless, offer zero ankle support and are responsible for some of the worst falls I’ve ever taken. That’s why all these mules have some sort of ankle strap or slingback — I care about you, dammit. Click through for 10 pairs to stay upright in…

Style Guide: 5 Of Spring’s Hottest Dress Trends

This season, the stores are packed with dresses in cuts that flatter every shape, from showing fit legs to hugging shapely curves. The hardest part is deciphering the lingo! Here is a quick guide to this spring’s hottest dress trends…

Must Haves: 10 High-Slit Maxi Skirts For Showing A Lot Of Leg

This spring, fashion is all about the daring cuts. If you’d rather flash a little leg than a little midriff, consider the high slit trend. Maxi skirts and dresses with high slits are coming in an array of fabrics and patterns, for occasions both casual and formal. To avoid pulling a Paris Hilton and flashing your mons pubis, go for slits that are off to the side and not so high that they’re cuttin’ it close. Here are 10 high-slit maxi skirts that will flash a lot of leg…

Must Haves: 11 Daring Crop Top Sets

The crop top trend can be pretty intimidating, but don’t let a little midriff scare you. Matching crop top and skirt sets appeared all over the runways of fashion week and are a major trend this spring.  I recommend keeping the shapes structured and the midriff exposure to a minimal sexy peek. Here are 11 crop top and skirt sets I’m jonesing for…
