Summer Must-Have: Short Shorts For Under Your Skirt

I loathe pants. I hate the way they feel, and I hate the way they look on me. This explains why I am such a fan of spring/summer fashion. Come May, my wardrobe consists solely of skirts and dresses, and I’m one happy camper. Until, that is, the wind comes along to rain on my…

Liberty Of London Does Print-Pretty Swimsuits

Liberty of London must know that Americans are having a full-on love affair with the oh-so-British brand. The designs, which made a big stateside impression this year thanks to a genius Target collaboration and a Mac makeup deal, are now available as swimwear at Neiman Marcus. The selection is small but well-rounded and exactly what…

How To Dress For Cuteness And Comfort On A Long Flight

A quick glance around any airplane is often an assault to your eyes. Whether too short, too tight, too sloppy, or too much, travelers are highly susceptible to putting on clothes inappropriate for their journey. Though it’s taken years, I think I’ve finally mastered the art of dressing for a long flight. It requires a…

Weekend Wear: Kim Kardashian’s Summer Concert Look

Kim Kardashian has been a fashion force since she landed on the scene as a result of her now-infamous sex tape. But even before she became known for her other talents (or lack thereof, depending on how you look at the situation), Kim worked as a stylist. I think Tim Gunn’s assessment of her taste…

A Lazy Summer Tank

Here’s something a bit shameful—come spring and summertime, there are usually a couple items in our closet that we just, um, don’t wash too much. You know, the comfy shorts you pull on to run to the grocery store, the tank you wear as a beach cover-up that gets re-used later in the day. (Please…

Maximize Your Wardrobe Possibilities

Every woman, no matter what her size or height is, needs a maxi dress in her closet. Most, like this Braided Strap Maxi Dress, have an empire waist or a similar effect. So, if you’ve got a little tummy, it will disappear under the dress. Even if you’re short, there’s no reason not to wear…

Wear Your Favorite Summer Pieces Through Fall!

If it were up to me, I would wear a totally fashionable, totally new outfit everyday. I would have a pair of hot heels or cute flats for everyday of the year and I would have at least one brand new, lust-worthy piece on every time I changed outfits. Alas, we can’t all be a…

What To Wear Now (And Later): Bubble Shorts

Along with harem pants, bubble shorts (also known as balloon, puff, and in some extreme cases, bloomer shorts) emerged as a major spring/summer trend. Circus pants, you say? Anne of Green Gables calling? Enough of that, and hear out our defense:

As a summer item, bubble shorts are going on sale to make room…

5 Reasons To Wear Harem Pants Now

When the harem pant trend came along this spring, many were reluctant to jump on the baggy-bottomed train. And with good reason—why go all gypsy-ass when you know people are going to stare at you, or think you’re smuggling produce or drugs in your crotch region?

True, true, the garment is one tricky trend.

Flutter Away With Butterfly Prints For Summer!

They call it the “butterfly effect”– the theory that a butterfly can flap its wings in Chile to create a windstorm in Central Park (not to be taken literally, of course). Regardless of the power the butterfly’s wings have, it’s obvious that they’re a trend to watch out for! Names like Diane von Furstenberg and…

Don’t Look Like A Hot Mess This Summer

As the humidity and temperature spike, so do our chances of heat-induced fashion problems. Every time I step onto a bus or subway or slide into a steaming car, my body sticks to the plastic on the seat and my clothes cling to my legs, delivering me to my destination stinky, clammy and busted-looking. But,…

Confessions Of An Over-Packer

I sort of have a packing problem. In theory you don’t need all that much for a weekend away, it’s only two or three days after all. I always start out very organized and plan my outfits to save space by avoiding redundancy. This forces me to think of what I will need, and that’…

Boots Are Coming Out Of Their Summer Hibernation

We normally put away our boots in favor of flip-flops and sandals when summer comes, but ankle boots have made their presence known on red carpets of late, and we’re trying to decide whether we should keep our feet ensconced in leather for the next few months.

“There are certain women who are just…

Q&A: Theory’s Istvan Francer On Spring/Summer Fashion Trends

Theory is synonymous with impeccably fitted items that have a look that is fashion-y, but at the same time simple and clean. Keeping in mind Theory’s emphasis on fit, quality and polished/chic look, I asked Theory’s Women’s Design Director Istvan Francer a few questions on how to wear this spring/summer’s hottest looks.

What Ever Happened To This Summer’s “Must Haves”?

Every month a gazillion magazines boldly discover the top three items we must have for this season. I mean must in the sense that the articles foretold our fashion doom if we did immediately drop the glossy pages and run to the mall. I will give the magazines their due, most of them have toned…

What To Wear: Summer Job Interview

It’s hot. It’s sunny, and you have a job interview. You must look savvy, chic and like the job candidate any company would be so lucky to have. But you don’t want to sweat through your three-season suit you rely on through the fall, winter and spring. Solution? Something crisp, airy and modern, like the…

The Emergency Outfit That Will Fit In Your Desk

Do you ever leave the house in an outfit that looks fine, but by the time you get to work you’ve convinced yourself that you’re the worst dresser ever? You want to run home and change, even though you have 5 minutes to get to your desk. Or you’ve spilled coffee all over yourself a…

Round Sunglasses Are The Next Big Thing We Won’t Be Buying

We’d seen the round glasses trend creeping up slowly for the last couple years. It became especially apparent the circle shades would blow up at some point when Mary-Kate Olsen, always the trendsetter, began wearing John Lennon-style wireframes on a regular basis. And then goggle-like pairs were paraded down the runways of Proenza Schouler, Lanvin,…
