Lingerie Style Inspiration: Shakira’s Sexy Red Corset Dress From The ACM Awards

Out of all the gorgeous gowns I saw on the red carpet and on stage at last night’s ACM Awards, the Kristian Aadnevik corset dress Shakira wore to perform “Medicine” with Blake Shelton was my absolute favorite. My reaction to it was a combination of “Oh my God she looks amazing,” and “Oh my God I want to be wearing that right now!” And while most of us don’t have that many opportunities to wear a skimpy corset dress in real life, we can definitely make some opportunities to wear the lacy red lingerie that inspired it. Click through to check out a few fabulous slips, bras, and corsets to bring a little sexy Shakira style into your bedroom (or under your work clothes, if you’re feeling particularly daring!)…

Style Inspiration: Happy 40th Birthday, Kate Moss!

Kate Moss style inspiration

Average people idolize celebrities for a plethora of reasons, some more valid than others. Outside of the realm of style, Kate Moss isn’t exactly the first star who comes to mind as far as inspirational lives are concerned, so maybe (probably) I am touched in the head for thinking she’s an overall positive role model. Despite drug scandals and disastrous relationship choices, Kate has always handled fallout with grace and an impressive ability to bounce back to a place even better than where she started. There are a lot of things I’ve learned from Kate being Kate, and how to dress is just one of them. Never complain, never explain. On her 40th birthday, a style inspiration board doesn’t even begin to cover it (maybe this French documentary will?), but it’s a decent place to start! Keep reading »

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Winona’s Dad

Dad Style

I love the idea of doing a fashion post inspired by my dad because his complete and total disdain for fashion is one of the major reasons I became interested in it. My dad’s style outlook can be summed up as “function over fashion.” He chooses his outfits based on two factors: comfort, and strategic efficiency in the event of a zombie invasion. For this reason, most of his wardrobe consists of zip-off cargo pants, hiking boots, safari hats, and misanthropic message T-shirts. Can you see why I’m excited to turn him into an unlikely style icon? Get the classic “Winona’s Dad” look (venomous snake not included) for yourself after the jump! Keep reading »

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Rachel’s Dad

Dad Style

In honor of Father’s Day, we thought it would be fun to draw some style inspiration from the most unlikely of sources: our dads. Our fathers’ lifestyles — and fashion senses — vary greatly, but one thing’s for sure: all our dads definitely have a look that’s all their own. Let’s kick things off with Rachel’s dad, a Connecticut-based currency trader whose style is summed up by his daughter as follows:

His signature look: black polo shirt (unbuttoned, chest hairs exposed), black jeans he’s had for 25 years, sandals (or UGG slippers, which he regularly wears out of the house), and some fancy ass watch set to a completely different time zone (for work purposes, I guess), expression of displeasure.

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Jessica’s Dad

Dad Style

Here at The Frisky, we’re celebrating Father’s Day in style by taking some unexpected fashion cues from our dads. First up was Amelia’s California dad’s amazing ’70s denim-on-denim look. Jessica’s New England-based dad is up next. Here’s how Jess described her computer programmer papa’s style:

“My dad wears shirts or pants with holes in them until we buy him new ones for Father’s Day or Christmas. Please note the ‘dad sweater’ and stylish ‘froggies’ on his glasses.”

While I have a hunch that Jessica’s dad is going to get a brand new pair of jeans this weekend, that doesn’t mean we can’t recreate his holey denim/slouchy sweater look for ourselves. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Amelia’s Dad

How to get this dad's style.

My dad had a number of signature looks over the course of my childhood, aspects of which I did not and still do not think are cute, like the yellow tinted Lennon-glasses and the pair of Birkenstocks permanently on his feet (with socks in winter). (I did, however, always dig his vintage T-shirt collection.) But damn if I did not see this photo of my dad in the ’70s and think, Are my eyes deceiving me or is this a page from the most recent Madewell catalog? Chambray on denim? Clogs with a goddamn heel?! A leather waist purse?!?! I will be replicating this outfit exactly and now you can too. Keep reading »

Style Inspiration: Leslie Knope’s Anchor Obsession

Yesterday I spent a few hours parked on my couch drinking wine and binge-watching “Parks & Rec.” It was glorious. I couldn’t help but notice, over the course of five or six episodes, that Leslie Knope displays a particular fondness for anchor prints, wearing both this Equipment blouse (which is sold out, sadly) and this Madewell anchor sweater (currently sold out on the Madewell site, but available on Shopbop). Since I’m always eager to copy anything and everything Leslie does, I thought I’d round up a few other anchor-themed pieces for anyone who wants to bring a little nautical Knope swagger into their wardrobe.

Random Style Inspiration: The Grand Ole Opry

This past weekend Nick and I went to The Grand Ole Opry and it. was. awesome. The auditorium itself was beautiful, and I was blown away by performances by Rhonda Vincent (seriously, watch her bluegrass version of “Jolene” and try not to fall in love with her!), The Striking Matches, and a bunch of classic country crooners paying tribute to the late George Jones. But my favorite thing about it? The fashion, of course! From the 80-year-old guys wearing sequined blazers to the preponderance of cowboy hats and bolo ties in the audience, it was country-fried glamour at its best. I couldn’t resist seeking out a few Opry-inspired must haves. Get the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

Style Inspiration: Amy From “Enlightened”

I started watching HBO’s “Enlightened” for the same reason I’ve started watching pretty much all of my favorite shows: Amelia was like, “Dude, you HAVE to watch this show.” And as usual, she was totally right, because within three episodes this show had completely stolen my heart. I love it so much. It’s a breath of fresh air. If you don’t watch it yet, here are 10 reasons you should start, but if you’re already watching (Good! Keep it up!), then you know the main character, Amy Jellicoe, played by the amazing Laura Dern, is always striving for a better, brighter, lighter life–and she makes sure to dress the part. Want to steal her sunny style? We’ve got all the pieces (for $100 or less!) after the jump… Keep reading »

Style Inspiration: Miami Right Now

The new season of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami” premieres this weekend, which means I’ll be sitting inside my cold NYC apartment suffering from serious location envy. But even if I — and you — can’t fit in a jaunt to the southern Florida hot spot, doesn’t mean we can’t take some style cues from the city for which I’m sure the world “sultry” was invented. Think bright colors and lots of white, sequins and cutouts, extreme lengths — maxi or mini — and sandals and wedges that can be paired with anything. Now, if only the weather would warm up around these parts… Keep reading »
