Style Stealer: Katharine McPhee’s Crystal-Embellished Collar

“American Idol” runnerup and star of NBC’s “Smash” Katharine McPhee has earned herself a well-deserved place as one to be watched style-wise. I mean, that Theyskens’ Theory dress at the Globes was to die for. Her casual looks are pretty righteous, too, and bonus points for carrying her Chihuahua around like a little potato! Fortunately for us, the event-ready ensemble she’s got on here is cute, comfortable, and easy to steal on the (relatively) cheap. Find out how, after the jump… Keep reading »

Must Haves: 15 Floral Pieces You Can Wear Right Now

As someone who confines their wardrobe to the darker side of the spectrum (happily, might I add), I naturally shy away from solid brights or pastels. They clash and look kind of silly against my palette of black, grey, dark green, beige, and white, so I find that my monochromes are best brightened with a heady dose of — you guessed it — florals. Patterns add an unexpected touch to any desaturated ensemble, and florals in deeper shades strike the perfect balance between spring’s paler, more saccharine versions and this season’s all goth, all the time aesthetic. The best part? There’s no reason you should have to wait until April (at least!) to show them off.

Must Haves: 10 Super-Warm Coats, Gloves, And Scarves To Get You Through This Winter

It’s been a pretty mild winter so far here in New York, with temperatures rising above 50 just last week … so it seems only karmic that just when we were thinking we could deal with winter at its best, we’re about to get it at its worst. Rumor has it (I go on Weather.com, sometimes) that temperatures are dropping, and a big chill is coming in a big way. If you haven’t invested in some crazy-ugly, crazy-warm winter outerwear and accessories, well, you might want to hit express on that shipping. I know it’s $15. Just do it. The good news: because we’re technically moving into the next season (spring!), tons of these items are on steep sale. The bad news: you’ll have to get your hands on them quick, before a) they sell out and b) the second ice age arrives. Okay, so maybe that’s an exaggeration, but still. I just hope that when it comes, you’ll have had the foresight to wear these …

That’s why we’ve culled together this list of 28 tips that will help you get the best stuff at the best prices — and not just cool stuff, but items you’ll actually wear.

Makeup Bag: The Best Beauty Buys $25 And Under

I don’t know about you, but my New Year’s resolutions have a lot to do with being a little more frugal. It hurts to part with my crazy-high skincare and makeup budget (seriously, what’s wrong with me?), but this is something that must be done. Rather than go cold turkey on my favorite products (never a good idea), I’ve found that many of them come in significantly cheaper mini forms, so I don’t have to sacrifice style for savings… and neither do you! Here are 10 of my favorite, no-fail beauty products that ring in at just $25 or under, perfect for your (and my) penny-pinching program. Keep reading »

Jeans are the keystone around which the rest of my wardrobe revolves. Sure, they’re not exactly trendy or adventurous, but they are definitely cool, comfortable, and the easiest thing to throw on in any given morning. The perfect pair can make you look like a supercharged version of yourself — taller, thinner, more stylish, even smarter! We may have left our printed jeans back in summer storage, but that doesn’t mean we’ve resigned ourselves to the faded old stalwarts: coated, or waxed, denim not only provides a sleek substitute to the black and blue variety, but the thicker, more substantial fabric makes it perfect for the cooler seasons upon us. We took the guesswork out of what to wear with your new favorite pair of jeans by putting together three different looks, after the jump … Keep reading »

It’s far too easy to fall into a deeeeep style rut when the weather takes a turn for the frigid; god knows even the thickest, most opaque stockings on the planet do not necessarily a warm person make.

We found 11 fabulous sweater dresses well-suited to any wardrobe, and at a range of price points to boot — just add tights, your favorite pair of booties, and go!

Must Haves: 10 Chunky Pullover Sweaters

I consider myself something of a pullover sweater connoisseur in that I am never not wearing one. Why wear real clothes when you can just throw a sweater on? This year, I’m loving them in warm, thick knits and relaxed crew-neck silhouettes, perfect for wearing alone or layering over collared shirts. Check out 10 of my top picks in the gallery above!

This weekend I was wandering around one of my favorite stores when I spotted a sliver of blue plaid fabric peeking out from the crowded rack of dresses. Blue is my favorite color, and plaid is my favorite pattern, so I was immediately intrigued.

When I reached into the mass of hangers and pulled out the mysterious dress, there is a good chance I audibly gasped. It was lined in silk, with a cutout in the back, a sweetheart neckline, and a flowing hourglass shape. It was surprisingly formal, but the plaid fabric made it feel playful and fun. It was unique without trying too hard. It was, quite possibly, the most beautiful dress I’d ever seen. “I would pay $200 for a dress like this,” I thought, flipping over the price tag to reveal numerous crossed-out sale prices making their way toward a grand total of $39.97. I practically skipped to the dressing room. Keep reading »
