Gorgeous clothes, tons of festivities, star sightings city-wide — what’s not to love about Fashion Week? Well, the prices, for one thing. We might fall madly in love with a dress right off the runway, but we’d be mad to shell out $3,000 for it, no? That’s why we’ve taken to the Internet in search of our favorite catwalk trends on a waaaaaay more reasonable budget. 

Good news! Both stripes and a black and white color palette will still be on trend next spring, if this look from Whit’s S/S 2014 collection is any indication. Chances are you can get this look from pieces you already have in your closet — or you can snag it with one or all of these pieces for under $75 each. Get the deets after the jump! Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Heidi Klum’s Stripes-On-Stripes Situation

Style Stealer: Heidi Klum's Stripes On Stripes

Proving once and for all that you can wear prints upon prints, Heidi Klum stepped out in an all-stripes ensemble for an appearance on “The Today Show.” Here’s one small rule for pulling this look off — the size of the stripes should vary. For example, Heidi’s skirt has a wide stripe, while her blouse has a thinner stripe, breaking the two pieces up and creating balance. I never met a stripe I didn’t like, so I am quite relieved Heidi has officially confirmed that I can wear more than one at once. Thanks for being a friend, Heidi. Find out how to get the look — including Miss Klum’s cool accessories — after the jump! Keep reading »

Who Wore It Best: Yipes! Stripes! Edition

Stripes are a failsafe casual print, but lately they’ve been creepin’ into more and more formal wear. It’s a tricky look, chiefly because you can look like a prison escapee if you don’t wear it right. DJ Caroline D’Amore, Marion Cotillard, AnnaSophia Robb, Olga Kurylenko and Chanel Iman all rocked stripes of a sort on the red carpet recently. And while most of the ladies stuck with simple black and white, you can see that stripes also work in pastel hues. But which stripe-y look do you like the most?

The stripe trend is obviously not going anywhere, since stores are packed with more stripey items than ever. I love stripes in pretty much every incarnation–thick, thin, vertical, horizontal–and I especially love seeing designers having fun with different color combinations. One stripe color combo I’m not quite sure about, though, is black and yellow. It’s visually striking, but no matter how chic the silhouette it always brings to mind the round bumblebee costumes of elementary school plays. What do you guys think? Would you wear black and yellow stripes? [$63, ASOS]

Shopping Guide: 10 Sleek Chevron Stripes

Style Stealer: Yikes Stripes!

Before you say, but Julie, I don’t WANT to steal this 1970′s model’s look: I know. It’s bright, it’s stripe-y, it’s slightly jarring to the corneas. But! There is something kind of cool and laidback and I-spend-my-summers-in-Mallorca about it, too. I’ve decided to update the look for the 2010s by toning down the color palette and giving it more of a nautical feel. I think you’ll approve. Keep reading »

Keep It Classy In A Striped Maxi

We’re suckers for sailor stripes, so it’s no surprise we’re crushing pretty hard on this dress. Horizontal stripes can be a little tricky, but these are thin enough that we’re confident in your ability to pull them off. Style it with a thick black belt to break up the pattern, throw on some red lipstick and serious heels, and get ready to look French in the best way possible.
