9 Outfits To Make Your Guy Go Weak At The Knees

Somewhere down the line I realized that women don’t dress for men but rather for women. I think, for the most part, guys don’t really care what we’re wearing as long as we’re there and paying attention to them. They don’t know what high-waisted pants are or that wedged heels are back in for summer, they just know that we wear clothes and we usually look pretty hot wearing them. I’m not saying that they don’t appreciate the effort that we take time out of our day to look nice for a date or a party, but they’re not really analyzing the outfit like women do. Guys say things like, “You look amazing!” Girls say something like, “I love that necklace!” Girls look at the detail, men look at the big picture. (Ah, and it’s true for relationships in general with men!)

While men don’t pay too much attention to our wardrobe, I will say that there a a few things that we can wear (or not wear for that matter) that will make his heart flutter. Read more…

Let’s face it, the last thing you want do in the morning is make your bed. In fact, there are a number of excuses we tell ourselves: It’s just going to get messy again.

Style 911: What Do I Wear With A Purple Body Con Dress?

I love these tight mini dresses with sleeves that are everywhere right now but I\’m unsure of how to stylize one. What would I wear with a purple one? I want to wear tights because its cold! Could I color block it with some gold tights? But then what kind of shoes? Help!–Lisa

Should you pair a purple body con dress with gold tights? In a word–and I mean this in the nicest way possible–NO. Okay okay, technically you can, but we wouldn’t recommend it, unless you’re performing in a parade, or auditioning for cheer squad. Instead, we’ve paired your purple dress with a completely different color palette–and we hope you’ll like it. As for the shoes, go for something with a not-too-high heel. Body-con is already mega-sexy, and if you wear a really high heel you run the risk of looking tarty. Check our selections after the jump! Keep reading »

Style Tip: Ruched Dresses Are A Curvy Girl’s Best Friend

The title of this post may have been a bit of a misnomer. Ruched dresses are actually on good terms with pretty much everyone, but if you’re a curvier girl looking to step into the body-conscious dress arena, a ruched dress is the way to go. Whereas a straight-up fitted dress does little to disguise the mushier areas we all have, gathered pieces cleverly camouflage them with flattering folds of fabric, daring people to guess where the dress begins and you end. We love the dress at left, but it’s a little pricey. For a more affordable alternative, Topshop gets the job done. Keep reading »

You know that vintage funk smell—a little musty, a bit pungent cheese-smelling and sort of moldy. Well, stink be gone: Janie Bryant, the “Mad Men” costume designer who turns out Betty, Don and the rest of the Sterling Cooper gang in ridiculously sexy (but not always overtly so) looks week after week (and clearly knows a little something about shopping vintage), shares an amazing tip: “All you have to do is mix one part vodka with two parts water in a spray bottle. It works every time—that’s the power of vodka for you.” [Valet magazine via Glamour] Keep reading »
