One Dress, Worn Three Ways

You know how it is — you get all excited about a dress, but then it sits in your closet and basically rots while you figure out how to wear it. This happens to me all the time. But never fear, we’ve got a plan to help you make the most out of what you’ve got. I like to buy rather basic dresses, so they can be worn fancy or casual, depending on your mood and desires. And for this experiment, I’ve picked a pretty plain A-line blue dress (blue is the new black, after all). Keep reading »

Style 911: “Help Me Find An Affordable Leather Jacket!”

“I’m searching for a cute black leather jacket in the price range of under $500, sort of like the one that Ami’s been rocking.  There’s so many of them out there it’s overwhelming to search, but I think it’s an item a lot of Frisky readers might be interested in, especially now that the temperatures are dropping.” –Heather

Finding the perfect leather jacket is definitely a process of trial and error. I asked Ami about hers, and she said it’s vintage. Buying vintage might be one option you want to pursue, but you’ll have to be prepared to hit up a bunch of vintage shops and try on a zillion jackets (which could be, you know, fun). But if you’re really anti-vintage, we’ve found a few options that might work, too. Check ‘em out after the jump!

3 Ways To Wear These Biker Boots

I was having a conversation with one of my girlfriends the other day and she mentioned how she loves motorcycle boots, but has no idea how to incorporate them into her current wardrobe.  I’ve heard this a lot in the past couple months, so I figured I’d share with you the easy ways you can incorporate this awesome flat boot into a variety of your looks.

Motorcycle boots have a tendency to come off a bit tough (think Rooney Mara in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”), but they’re really much more versatile and easy to wear.

Want proof? Check out these three totally different ways to rock this “hardcore” style using Steve Madden’s Tarnney Boots. Read more…

 

Style 911: What Do I Do With This Vintage Mink Stole?

Style 911: Turquoise Bridesmaid!
"Help me find a decent dress in this random color!" Read More »

“I have a vintage stole that was my grandmother’s from the 1940s or so, and I have absolutely no idea what to do with it! How do I wear something like this?” – Sonia

The way I see it, you have two options: play into the retro-ness of the stole, or try and redefine it entirely. That’s why we’ve given you two contrasting options — one that plays up the vintage-y vibe and one that allows you to rock this stole with stuff you probably already have in your wardrobe. But hey, wearing something as crazy unique as a vintage stole is all about attitude — if you wear it with confidence, you can wear it with practically anything! Keep reading »

Style 911: “Shower Me In A Turquoise Skirt!”

“Help! I’m a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding and the only directive I’ve been given is turquoise. I can wear a skirt or a dress but there needs to be turquoise. I don’t want it to be too tight, or too revealing (I’ve got back tattoos!) — and none of that high-low skirt business. What do you recommend?” — Marlee

Oh geez, turquoise. It’s one of those colors that seems like an easy-peasy good idea, but is actually really hard for a lot of people to wear. A shade or two off and you look neon and will upstage the bride. But never fear, we’ve got some options for you! Get the details after the jump!

“I just received a Gap chambray shirt that I ordered from Ebay … but what I thought was their modern-cut, form-fitting top was more of a ’90s style, over-sized shirt. I see women wearing looser chambray shirts tucked into tight miniskirts … but I’m 5’0″ and a size 12. I don’t think that look would flatter me. How else can I style this top? I’ve attached a picture for reference.” — Jackie

Oh Jackie, my closet is a veritable treasure chest of misbegotten eBay items — things that are too big or too small, and just totally unwearable. Good on you for trying to make something out of a shirt you didn’t want. Thankfully, that oversized ’90s-style chambray top will actually work with a lot of stuff. The key, though, is balance. You’ve got to balance the oversized, flowiness of it with something more tight-fitting and sleek. Don’t try and hide the oversized-ness of the shirt! Play it up!

Style 911: “I Need Good Grey Jeans!”

“Help! I’m looking for a pair of grey jeans to mix up my wardrobe. I want light grey ones, but not so light that I have to worry about spills on them. I’d also like them skinny not flared. Do you have suggestion of jeans that fit a size 10 or 12? I’m willing to spend up to $150 but would prefer less.” — Kendra

Ah yes,the old jean hunt. Grey jeans are a nice basic that go great with pretty much anything you’d wear regular blue denim with. After the jump, we have four great options for you!
