10 Styling Tips For People Who Are Wearing Their Clothes All Wrong

If there’s anything I’ve learned from trolling Pinterest, flipping through the J. Crew catalogs that stuff my mailbox every week and ogling stylish women on the streets of New York City, it’s that I apparently have no idea how to dress myself.

How To Shop For Midi & Maxi Skirts/Dresses As A Petite Girl

I may be a tad biased, but I feel like conventional fashion wisdom leaves petite girls like myself with very few sartorial options for summer comfiness.

Style 911: “Help Me Cover My Ugly Wrist Surgery Scars!”

So I broke both wrists this fall.  The casts are now off but I’m left with some rather ugly surgery scars on both wrists.  Frankly they look like suicide scars and I’d like some ideas for how cover them up when I choose (job interviews and the like). The scars are each about four inches long,…

One Crop Top Sweater, Three Ways To Wear It

I know what you’re thinking: a crop top?! Really? Yes. I humbly ask you to consider the crop top sweater as a versatile wardrobe staple rather than a trendy mistake you’ll one day regret.

Style 911: “I Need Dressy Flats For Fall & Winter!”

“With winter approaching I’m getting into my usual fall dilemma (which I have obviously failed to solve). To be totally honest, I am relatively particular about shoes.  In the summer I wear flip flops, strappy flat sandals, toms and for work and nice dinners out, ballet flats.  I basically refuse to wear heels unless I…

Unlikely Style Icon: Prince In “Purple Rain” Does A Frilly Shirt Proud

There’s really only one man who can get away with wearing a blouse, and that’s Mr. Purple Rain himself, Prince. Nearly 30 years after “Purple Rain” debuted, Prince is still killing it style-wise, and the recent Twitter convert’s music is still as relevant and sexy as ever. Seriously, did you hear his new track, “Breakfast

Day-To-Night: 3 Outfits To Take You From The Office To The Club

If you’re anything like us, you find it nearly impossible to leave work, come home and go back out again. Once we get in the vicinity of our couches, the idea of leaving the house to do anything — even the most fun thing — seems unlikely. Which is why it’s imperative that we find…

So What Do You Wear To A Rave, Anyway?

I was never much of a raver. I was too busy getting moody and sullen with my punk music and my whiny indie rock to ever delve too deeply into the rave scene. But even I couldn’t escape the rave fashion of the ’90s; I once bought a horrible synthetic fabric maxi skirt from Philly’…
