“I could really use your advice about this pair of velvet Levi’s that I bought. I have been a jeans-only girl my entire life, so the last time I was at the mall I decided to be a little adventurous and went ahead and bought these pants without any thought as to how I might style them. Now I’m stuck! Thus far, I’ve only been able to awkwardly pair them with a white striped shirt! I could really use suggestions for not only tops, but shoes as well. I hope this doesn’t pose too difficult of a challenge!” – Deepa

Deepa, you are a braver woman than I — I am perennially scared of velvet, mostly because it brings up terrible nightmares of the purple crushed-velvet dress with batwing sleeves I wore to my 8th grade dance. Nightmares! But these velvet pants? They’re pretty damn cute. The thing with velvet is you’ve got to be careful not to pair it with a fabric that’s too weak or flimsy. Otherwise, the pants will completely outshine the shirt. That’s why we’d opt for a chambray button down — it’s got enough heft to it that your outfit will feel balanced. As for shoes, absolutely do not wear the shoes pictured with the pants — those nude platforms will only make your legs look stumpy in velvet jeans. Instead, opt for a low heeled bootie — check out the items we’ve picked out for you, after the jump! Keep reading »

That’s why we’ve culled together this list of 28 tips that will help you get the best stuff at the best prices — and not just cool stuff, but items you’ll actually wear.

Wearing a bright, bold shirt might be too much for some. But never fear, we’ve got three ways to wear that impulse purchase that’s been sitting in your closet, collecting dust. The key with any kind of bold shirt or blouse is to make sure that what you pair it with is fairly basic and plain. You don’t want to be competing with what you’re wearing, after all.

Jeans are the keystone around which the rest of my wardrobe revolves. Sure, they’re not exactly trendy or adventurous, but they are definitely cool, comfortable, and the easiest thing to throw on in any given morning. The perfect pair can make you look like a supercharged version of yourself — taller, thinner, more stylish, even smarter! We may have left our printed jeans back in summer storage, but that doesn’t mean we’ve resigned ourselves to the faded old stalwarts: coated, or waxed, denim not only provides a sleek substitute to the black and blue variety, but the thicker, more substantial fabric makes it perfect for the cooler seasons upon us. We took the guesswork out of what to wear with your new favorite pair of jeans by putting together three different looks, after the jump … Keep reading »

Today’s 1 x 3 was inspired by Ami and Amelia. Both of them are able to pull off a chambray shirt with aplomb, and I’ve pretty much directly copid a couple of their looks for this lil’ feature. Chambray shirts are great because they can be dressed up or down, worn alone, or layered with simple tees. They can tone down overly girly outfits and add a little bit of edge to basically anything.

Let’s take a walk down chambray lane, shall we? Keep reading »

On Friday, I got an email from a reader named Tyiesha. It simply said: “Where can I find these?” with the attached photo.

Well, Tyiesha, I looked high and low. Do you want the good news or the bad news first? The bad news? I couldn’t find the exact shoes you’re looking for. I’m thinking they might be Alaia, which would make them prohibitively expensive anyway. But I did find three booties that closely approximate the shoes you’re really jonesing for. Check them out after the jump, and let us know what pair you picked! Keep reading »
