Style On The Street: Nice Lookin’ Shorts

Annika has challenged us all to wear shorts (and look nice doing so) this spring, and Katy here proves that it’s possible! Along with her nude lace-up flats, high-waisted shorts, and bangle bracelets, we love how the long necklace ads a little oomph to her outfit. [Weardrobe]

Style On The Street: Across Marks The Spot

Now that it’s getting a wee bit warmer, you can stop piling on layers of sweaters and coats and finally show the world the cute clothes you’ve got on underneath. We think spring is an excellent time to change purses, as well. While you probably wouldn’t want to wear a cross-body handbag over a puffy…

Style On The Street: Absolute Perfection

Normally, I like one thing about people’s outfits — sometimes two things. But I adore ever single thing about this girl’s outfit. In fact, I’d like to break into her house and steal it from her closet. [Weardrobe]…

Poll: Can Women Wear Bow Ties?

For Christmas this year, one of my dream gifts was a plaid bow tie. Our Simcha was thoughtful enough to surprise me with one, and I have since spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to wear it without looking like a waitress at a Scottish restaurant. Do you think wome…

Style On The Street: Jumpers For Adults

This girl is wearing what I call a “jumper” and others call a sleeveless dress with a shirt underneath. What a wonderful way to wear favorite summer dress during the winter! Just make sure to put on a slip underneath — my tights always create static cling with thinner, unlined skirts. [Weardrobe]…

Style On The Street: Don’t Match, Blend

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: Winter is really all about having fun with tights. If you find an awesome pair that doesn’t match anything you own, just wear them with colors that are in the same family, like this young lady and her palette of deep hues. [Weardrobe]…

Style On The Street: Black + White = Gray

Normally, my go-to tights color is black, but I bought a pair of gray ones the other day, and they’re fast becoming my favorites. I’m not forsaking black by any means, but gray tights are much more versatile. You can wear them with black, you can wear them with navy blue, and, as Alice here…

Style On The Street: Go With The Bow

Sometimes, it can be hard to figure out how to wear a scarf without looking like a flight attendant. Tying an oblong scarf (square ones don’t really work for this) into a giant bow is an excellent option — just make sure the scarf isn’t wrapped too tightly around your neck. [Weardrobe]

Style On The Street: Button-Downs Don’t Have To Be Buttoned

Let’s take a minute to remember the ’90s. Nirvana played on the radio, “Beverly Hills 90210″ was on TV, and you wore huge flannel shirts to school, sometimes with a kick-ass concert tee underneath. We’re not in the ’90s anymore, so this gal classed up the open-shirt look by swapping flannel for crisp, white oxford.

Style On The Street: Black And Brown And Awesome All Over

Some people freak out about mixing black and brown, but they shouldn’t. We should all embrace the combo, like Effie here, who shows the world that mixing is fine, as long as you look put together. P.S. It helps if you stick to one color for all of your accessories. [Weardrobe]

Style On The Street: Black Dresses Don’t Have To Be Boring

I’ve worn the same black dress several times in the past couple months, and every time I wear it, Amelia says, “Ooh! I like your dress! Where’s it from?” She probably gets confused because I wear it with a different belt every time. The moral of this story is: You can wear the same black…

Style On The Street: There’s No Wrong Way To Wear A Blazer

Okay, that’s a lie. There are wrong ways to wear a blazers. Most of the time, however, they’ll make you look a whole lot nicer without much effort. The best (and cheapest) blazers are the ones in the boys’ department. The small size means the fit is less boxy, and the sleeves will be 3/4-length…

Style On The Street: Check Marks The Spot

Okay, so I have absolutely no idea what is going on with this girl. I am hoping that it was Halloween when this photo was taken. Either that, or she’s an actress in a horror movie and she didn’t have a chance to take off her blood makeup. That being said, her buffalo plaid cardiga…

Style On The Street: Gray, Gray, All The Way

Gray jeans are a little classier than the normal blue ones. I must get myself a pair. I will not, however, wear them with a fuzzy gray vest, and nor should you. [Trender Bender]

Style Profile: Mickey Rourke?

This girl goes for classic, clean pieces, but skinny jeans? They can suck it. So what does this have to do with Mickey Rourke? Watch to find out!

Style On The Street: Ruffled, Yet Composed

Ruffles are complicated enough on their own. If you decide to wear some, keep the rest of your outfit basic. Otherwise, you might end up looking like a really expensive wedding cake. [Trender Bender]…

Style On The Street: Manly Coats And High Heels

If you go with the rugged-jacket-and-girly-shoes look, you might want to wear tights. Fall is here. [Trender Bender]…

Style On The Street: Brown, Brown, All Around

If you’re going to dress head to toe in one color, at least mix up the textures, like this gal who has a thing for deep maroon-y brown. Notice how she’s wearing tights that have lines on them instead of solid ones? Good call. Also, it’s a good thing she’s blond. If she were a…
