Last week, I raved about this amaaazing hot pink/olive green combo that Katie Holmes wore to the studio to film an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman. Commenter nomnombacon fell in love with Katie’s gorgeous military-inspired jacket, and can you blame her? It’s such a gorgeous piece. Julie and I did some digging and discovered that the exact coat Katie’s wearing is Balenciaga, which means it costs roughly as much as a vacation home in the Bahamas, but don’t worry–we found three alternative options that aren’t exactly cheap, but much more accessible than the original. Check ‘em out after the jump, and if you have a Style 911 question, email me at winona@thefrisky.com! Keep reading »

I suppose this is what Zooey Deschanel thinks is charmingly incognito. But it’s a bit too “Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego” for my taste. Zooey was photographed coming out of pilates class, and if you’ll notice, she’s still managed to wear her signature black tights.

Win This! Gap’s Soft Trench For Spring

Jeggings. Shooties. Jorts. So many hybrid fashion terms, too little time after shopping to memorize them. It’s okay, here’s one worth remembering — FLASHION. That when flash sales occur on hot fashion items allowing shoppers the opportunity to grab them before sell out at a major markdown. Gap is having one a Flashion sale of their own this Saturday March 5th — in-store shoppers will be able to grab this Soft Trench for only $50, nearly $40 off the retail price of $89.95, and just for that one day. But like Veruca Salt, do you want in nowwww — and for free? We’re giving away a Soft Trench to one super lucky reader!

WIN THIS! Tell us in the comments what the most ridiculous fashion hybrid item (a la jeggings) you could imagine would be — and what it would be called. For example, BRADIGAN: a bra that buttons in the front like a cardigan. The most hilarious answer will walk away with Gap’s Soft Trench and the rest of you will have to get your own on Saturday. Enter by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, March 3, 2011. We’ll pick our favorite response and announce the winner Friday, March 4. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. (Read the official rules here.) Good luck!

No more ruined pumps! We’re going to make the junky weather our bitch with entirely appropriate (but still attractive) rain/snow/horrible weather gear. How to do it, after the jump. Keep reading »

Social Networking For Trench Coats

Some people love their Twitter; others are obsessed with Facebook. Burberry is providing fans with a brand-new social media site: Art of the Trench. The brand has tapped none other than street style photographer Scott Schuman to capture countless images of people sporting their trenches, providing inspiration to the world on trench styling. The site is one of those you can sit on for hours, clicking back and forth between images to see a multitude of people captured by The Sartorialist. Comment, build your own trench profile, and submit a picture of yourself wearing one for the chance to be featured on the site. In the future, a history of the trench will appear, complete with a time line of events and “original black-and-white footage of the first wearers of Burberry’s trenchcoats.” No one should be surprised that Burberry is getting into the networking side of the internet, as the brand live-streamed the spring 2010 collection on their Facebook page, sends out e-brochures instead of printed materials, and plans to create digital look books in the next year. But we have to wonder whether social networking for your jacket might be a tad much? [WWD] Keep reading »
