Clutch This And Don’t Let Go

Everyone needs a simple leather clutch in their arsenal. This American Apparel medium-sized pouch can fit most of your essentials, plus a small paperback. It comes in so many neutral and punchy colors, like rose bowl and buttercup, that you'll have a difficult time choosing just one. But at $50, you can afford to pick…

HUDSON: Denim You Can Tolerate In The Summer

Even if you're a die-hard jeans girl 10 months out of the year, when summer arrives, heavy denim is probably the last thing you reach for. But HUDSON jeans' spring/summer 2011 collection is denim you can actually tolerate in the heat. Inspired by the culture of Dogtown and Venice, CA in the '70s, the collectio…

Style Stealer: Solange At The Elle Women In Music Concert

Solange's ensemble for the Elle Women in Music concert in Hollywood wasn't met with the best reception. I'm sure her bralette top has something to do with that. However, the '70s feel of the high-waist pants, long cardigan, and floppy hat is right in step with the sophisticated bohemian vibe this season. Solange's look…

Do A Man’s Exposed Ankles Excite You?

Now that the temperature has finally begun to warm up, more men seem to be cuffing their pants. This gives them the opportunity to show off their shoes and gives the overall look a more casual feel. But cuffed pants also expose the ankles, an area of a man's leg we usually only see if…

A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

It's really hard to figure out what to wear during the spring months, when the weather can turn from nice to nasty on a dime. That's why we love Wolf & Harrison's French Terry Cape, which allows you to brave the elements in a sweet and stylish way. The 100 percent organic cotton cape fill…

And The Prize Goes To … The Most Ridiculous (Imagined!) Fashion Hybrid Item

Earlier this week, we asked you to tell us the most ridiculous fashion hybrid item you could imagine, along the lines of jeggings, jorts, shooties, and my contribution to the fashion lexicon, bradigan. The most original and hilarious suggestion would win Gap's Soft Trench, part of the brand's spring collection. We've picked a winner…

Step Into Spring

February fashion mags are already hitting newsstands and even though it's still the dead of winter, editors are already crowing about the hot trends for Spring 2011. Among them: wedge heels with rope embellishments. Ugh, but how to wear the trend now? These teal round-toe pumps with their subtle jute platform sole are the perfect…

Video Of Tom Ford’s Spring 2011 Fashion Show

The presentation of Tom Ford's spring/summer 2011 collection was the most buzzed about fashion show during New York Fashion Week. It was a star-studded affair, but was also extremely exclusive. Only one photographer was allowed to snap photos during the show, so only the fashion elite has seen the glamorous fashions until now. See…

First Look: I Heart Ronson Spring 2011

We've been huge fans of I Heart Ronson, designer Charlotte Ronson's junior's line for JCPenney, since 2008 because it features really cute clothes at affordable prices. The spring collection, slated to arrive in JCPenney stores in February, doesn't disappoint. There are several sweet dresses and shorts that will fit right in with…

Yay, For Striped Shoes!

I have quite a shoe fetish, and whenever I see shoes I like, I automatically begin to style them (in my imagination) with my own clothes. That's what happened when I saw these Prada spring 2011 shoes. I thought I could wear them with black skinny jeans or a pair of white-washed, distressed jeans. And…

What Do You Make Of The “Midi-Skirt” Trend?

Just as we've seen some interesting fluctuation in pant construction over the past year, so too has the skirt, most noticeably with the maxi skirt trend, which came back last spring. Looks like the garment is now taking the middle road as many a Milan runway saw what WWD calls the "midi-skirt," a not…

I Can See Your Bra, Catwalker

The spring 2011 collections are now showing at New York Fashion Week and, according to designer Richard Chai, barely-there sheer shirts and über shellacked hair are all the rage! [9/9/10, NYC]…

Burberry’s Special Edition Rain-Themed Collection—Redundant?

Burberry just launched a small, limited-edition collection based on the theme of rain (April showers, more specifically). The range includes Haymarket checked rain boots, printed umbrellas, trench coats, and a whole mess of small accessories. We have to laugh for a second because if this special line is rain-themed, then what was everything else…

A Dress For Spring Formal

Welcome to the season of outdoor events with a dress that'll suit you up for all of them. We're crushing on this French Connection number (hilariously named the "Wizard Wonder" dress) for its chic simplicity—pure white gets the high-fashion treatment with a structured body and sleek side ruffle. Good for garden get-togethers, patio parties, and…

Diesel’s Spring 2010 Video Lookbook: Proof That Hipsters Can’t Dance

Hipsters are good at a lot of things—looking aloof, posing for American Apparel ads, making food stamps and trying to make raccoon hats cool—but dancing isn't one of them. Proof comes in Diesel's spring 2010 video lookbook, which references Goddard's French New Wave film "Bande à Part." Please, leave the bad dancing to…

Maximize Your Wardrobe Possibilities

Every woman, no matter what her size or height is, needs a maxi dress in her closet. Most, like this Braided Strap Maxi Dress, have an empire waist or a similar effect. So, if you've got a little tummy, it will disappear under the dress. Even if you're short, there's no reason not to…
