10 Summer Style Dos And Don’ts

The sun is out and the heat is on. But just because you’ve said goodbye to the cold weather layers doesn’t mean you can say goodbye to common style rules. Bling-bling and bikinis, heels at the beach, and sunglasses indoors just aren’t fashionable, regardless of who is wearing them. After the jump, find 10 summer…

Weekend Wear: Rachel McAdams’ Street Festival Look

Last week, we showed you some awesome abstract print skirts and this week we’re showing you how to rock one. Rachel McAdams proves that it’s best to keep the rest of the outfit simple and let the skirt stand out. But her satchel is also worthy of a mention. The unusual ice blue/gray color and…

Denim And Faint Stripes Make An Adorable Mix

It’s not easy to wear a denim dress without looking like a confused farm hand. For doing it right, we must praise Motel, purveyors of this utterly adorable striped denim concoction. The shape is cute, the pockets subtle and the denim-y-ness not at all overwhelming. We sense a new weekend uniform in the making.

What Do You Make Of The Oxford Sandal?

Last fall, we had a full-on fashion love affair with oxford shoes. So schoolboy-ish. So versatile. So comfy. Lately, the oxfords have gone into hibernation, and strappy sandals have taken their place. We’ve noticed, however, that a few retailers are still pushing oxfords this season, updating them for summer in a slightly sandal-ized version with…

Would You Wear The “Summer Poncho”?

Introducing the “summer poncho,” a design brought to you by Glamourpuss, socialite Gigi Mortimer’s clothing line. While some (us, perhaps) might glance at this and call it a caftan (standard beach cover-up), the garment is definitely meant to be the lightweight translation of the poncho jacket. Explains Mortimer, “We designed it as a warm-weather alternative…

Cheapskate: I Heart Ronson Sale

This week in Cheapskate I’m highlighting JCPenney’s I Heart Ronson line, which is designed by Charlotte Ronson. The collection is right in step with fun and flirty summer fashion, but isn’t overly trendy. Plus, almost everything is on sale, so hurry up and snatch up these cute clothes.

Fred Flare Skirt Beats Anthropologie Style At Half The Price

We’ve had a thing for this Anthropologie skirt (left) for a while now. The bright colors are alluring, the shape is flattering, and we just want it, dammit. A rather unattractive price tag, however, has held us back. That, after all, is not the sort of skirt you can wear all the time without being…

What Fragrances Are You Wearing This Summer?

Summer’s here! The Frisky wants to know what new fragrances you’re wearing this summer. I’m wearing Angel by Theirry Mugler’s Sunessence Blue Lagoon. It smells like the beach, honey, vanilla, cranberry, and good times. Tell us what fresh fragrance you’re wearing this summer, and we’ll put your best suggestions together in a summer scent slide…

Bespoke Swimsuits Are The Answer To Your Bikini Fears

‘Tis the season for pool days, beach tanning, and summer vacations, all of which no doubt incite spasms of fear and pangs of terror in women all over. Because along with the warm weather comes the need to dress appropriately, and show off aspects of your figure that hid out underneath layers of clothes all…

Yay Or Nay: The High-Waisted Bikini

Summer trend alert! This season, we’re seeing tons of high-waisted bikinis in the swimwear department, from high-end labels like Chloe and Prada down to your discount retailers. Either these styles are a vintage throwback, or designers have figured out how to tap into a market of normally bikini-phobic women.

What do you think about…

Cheapskate: Swimsuits For Less Than $60 … Seriously

I’m still not convinced swimsuits need to cost hundreds of dollars. I mean, isn’t trying on suit after suit in front of one of those fun house mirrors in the fitting room enough humiliation? Obviously not, because some stores want you to fork over a large fraction of your summer fun money for a few…

We Love Lululemon Do It All Shorts

Shopping for shorts is not usually fun. Whether they’re too tight, small or mean to the shape of your butt, the ways in which shorts can go wrong are borderline endless. So when we discovered Lululemon’s “Do It All” shorts and subsequently found that they can, in fact, do it all, we were thrilled. They’re…

Summer Must: Anthropologie Reversible Seamless Tank

I am not graceful during the summer. Really, is it reasonable for anyone to expect to look like anything but a mess when it’s 90 degrees and it feels as though the world is going to melt? Probably not. But certain occasions do warrant looking more put-together. On those days, I thank the sweet god…

Lindsay Lohan Really Wants To Hide That SCRAM Bracelet

Just last week, Lindsay Lohan put out a Twitter plea to Karl Lagerfeld for a few Chanel stickers to dress up her new SCRAM bracelet. When the designer shockingly didn’t immediately respond to her request, Lindsay must have realized she was going to need a second option to get through the court-ordered punishment. Rather tha…

Cheapskate: Shorts For Less Than $50

The unofficial start of summer begins today, and it’s time to stock up on shorts of all lengths. Short-shorts can look cute with flat shoes. Mid-thigh length ones show off toned legs with a pair of heels. And knee-length Bermuda or walking shorts can be office appropriate, depending on where you work. We’ve got the…

A Swimsuit For Taking The Plunge

Anyone who says one-pieces fall into the senior citizen swimwear category obviously hasn’t seen Quiksilver’s McCall suit. This vintage-inspired number covers up more than a bikini would, but the monokini cut and deep V-neck sex things up. Put it on and you’ll enjoy your day at the beach twice as much as you would wearing…

Weekend Wear: Veronica Webb’s Sightseeing Look

Former model Veronica Webb was spotted out and about in NYC wearing a light and airy look that we think is perfect for a weekend spent sightseeing. She’s ready for a lot of walking in her flat oxfords, and the big bag will stash all her souvenirs and will keep a sweater handy (museums alway…

25 Percent Off Vivier’s Summer Line Until Memorial Day!

Gone forever are the days of camp, those golden weeks of summer when you left your school year personality behind, actually had a shot at having a boyfriend, ate s’mores without calorie counting, and even got to play with weapons in archery class. Vivier, one of our favorite indie handbag labels, recaptures all that with…

Take A Mod Roman Holiday

It’s kind of surprising that the gladiator sandal has remained trendy for going on three summers now. But, honestly, the look isn’t for everyone. Avon’s Mod Fever Patent Sandal bridges the divide between strap-happy gladiators and simple thong sandals, a staple in most women’s closets. The circles add subtle flair and the tiny heel give…
