Fall Must Haves: 10 Leather Bottom Pieces In An Array Of Colors

Celebs may have worn it first, but we’ve been feeling leather (and leather-look) pants, shorts, and skirts in the forecast for some time now. The right piece fits seamlessly into any wardrobe; it can be the centerpiece of an outfit in color or worn with anything in black. Either way, it’s a luxurious, classic look with an unexpected edge. But let’s face it — good leather doesn’t come cheap. Hell, neither does good pleather. The quest to find the right pair of pants, or the perfect skirt, isn’t easy, so we’ve made it a little easier by compiling 10 of our best bets (of both leather and vegan pleather) under $300, with 4 options under $100. Don’t be afraid to invest in leather, because if New York Fashion Week runway trends are any indication (and duh, of course they are), the look is here to stay well through the next two seasons.

Style Stealer: Nikki Reed’s Casual Colorblocking

Nikki Reed may not have quite the same level of notoriety as some of her more, ahem, high-profile “Twilight” co-stars, but if the newlywed’s low-key lifestyle is any indication, she wouldn’t have it any other way. Regardless, with (count ‘em!) four starring movie roles coming up in the next year, I don’t think it will be long before Nikki reaches leading-lady status. The actress hit up “Extra” earlier this week to talk the end of “Twilight” — or at least that’s what I think she was there for, because all I could do was plot to steal her clothes. This is the kind of outfit I love: cool, tough, and classic, with just a couple of trendy touches like colorblocking and coated jeans. We’ve got a look just like it, after the jump … Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Taylor Swift Is An Adorable American In Paris

Leave it to Taylor Swift to not only find the time and wherewithal to not only ride her bike through the streets of Paris, but to look enviably lovely (and, naturally, a bit twee) while doing so, with nary a sporty sneaker nor sweaty bun to be found. While most of us claim spandex and a helmet as the defining features of our bike-riding attire, Taylor opted for a more glamorous look that’s still functional — an ankle-length skirt spares you the Flash Factor, while a cheeky (or plain, as you please) pair of flats will serve you just as well when you’re strolling down the street with your boyfriend… who just so happens to be American royalty. What? You mean your 18-year-old boyfriend isn’t a Kennedy? Well, that’s weird. Keep reading »

High-street and department store collaborations with luxury fashion houses are commonplace these days, what with stores announcing a new capsule collection every five minutes (or so it seems). But for all of the brands that choose to affordably market their wares to the mainstream, there are a few whose ethos seem quite at odds with large, budget-priced “fast fashion” retailers. We had pegged Maison Martin Margiela for the renegade type — the brand is, after all, famous for its in some cases unwearable avant-garde, architectural sensibilities — so their decision to join forces with H&M on a one-off line of clothing and accessories came as a certain surprise. We’re not complaining — who wouldn’t want to get their hands on Margiela’s totally weird, totally amazing, Kanye West-namedropped pieces without the four-figure price tag? Keep reading »

Set The Message Straight Any Day Of The Week

Maybe you’re mean, or maybe you’re just sassy. Maybe it’s Monday morning and you haven’t gotten your caffeine intravenously yet (three shots, please). Maybe it’s Saturday night and you feel like going to a trashy dive with your girlfriends without being approached by the lechers that generally come with it. Hell, maybe it’s Wednesday, and you just want to make it clear to your fellow subway riders that you are not in the mood to be shoved (are you ever?). Whatever the circumstances, let your wrist do the talking so you don’t have to: seriously, fuck off. [$44, Screwords]

There’s something about large groups of femmey, gregarious women that makes me feel like I’m perennially choking on my own nervous snot. It’s not the whole queermo thing, because I react to being surrounded by attractive men by becoming almost aggressively casual. It’s more that finding myself swept up in a crowd of giggling, nice-smelling women takes me almost viscerally back to middle school, when I wore a retainer every hour of the day and thought that playing the alto sax in the jazz band made me the next Kathleen Hanna.

Also, I was really into Kathleen Hanna. So. Keep reading »
